I definitely woke up much less stiff and sore this morning. But I also had to do a very modified work out yesterday (due to my sore knee).
Hubs and I are headed to his parents this weekend so John can help them do some projects (which involve climbing on the roof, so I’m guessing they are both serious and necessary). I’ve struggled with travel since the whole MS thing, because I am a creature of habit, and those habits involve food (ahem, smoothies). So yesterday, I set about finding a small, portable blender so I can have a smoothie in the morning while we are away from home.
Amazon really dropped the ball. I originally ordered a blender that had a guaranteed delivery date of tomorrow, just to have the tracking information update this morning when I checked shipping. Thanks Amazon, so glad I have a Prime Membership and infinitely more glad that it’s so efficient. Smoke could be seen coming out of my ears and in a rage, I cancelled the order. What good does a blender do me on Monday? No good at all. None.
So, today, my goals include hitting my Move goal (aka burning over 800 calories according to my watch), drinking at least four bottles of water in preparation for meds tomorrow (being hydrated means the nurses can find the veins and saves me additional angst because I really don’t love needles) and finding a portable blender at either Kohls (I’ve googled, it seems they have quite a selection) or BBB (I’d rather hit the jackpot at Kohls – it’s closer to home). I’ve done my meal planning for the day – salad for lunch and veggie noodles with chicken sausage for dinner (I had sushi last night, because Hubs had to go meet a work associate at the last minute and take him to dinner). We also have to pack up the truck for the weekend — tent for camping in the yard, air mattress, blankets etc etc. I’m still trying to figure out what workouts I will do while in Mansfield. But I’m sure I’ll come up with something. Additionally, the paper has begun to accumulate on my desk, so I should probably sift through that before going away for a couple days.
Ah. Life. Always keeping you on your toes. Wishing everyone a great day filled with lots of smart food choices, a healthy sweat and tons of hydration. It’s a humid one in Southeastern PA, so I’m sure the MS will be buzzing! (Literally. It feels like buzzing in my fingers and hands).
