I am so stiff & sore ~ have been for two days ~ I can't believe it! How did I get this way? What incredible physical exertion did I go through? What amazing feats of strength & endurance did I display? Oh, it's so embarrassing!

I cleaned.

That's right, you heard me. I cleaned. We had a spring-cleaning bee at the-place-where-I-worship on Saturday, & as a result I hurt all over. My legs protest every step, my arms shake when I try to lift or pull, my feet are sore, & my back has been threatening to give out.

I'm so out of shape. I'm really sad & angry with myself for allowing things to get to this stage. When I look back...

Never look back. It's not good for the soul. Yes, I was in better shape. Yes, I had strength & endurance. Yes, I had a kick-ass body. However, I am a much better & wiser person inside now. I just have to slowly try to make the outside as fabulous as the inside.

On the plus side, all that cleaning has made me look around Casa Wilma lately & realized that a little spring cleaning around here wouldn't be amiss. In fact, it might be greatly warranted as no spring cleaning has been attempted around here since we moved in. Six years ago. It may be time.

Maybe I should clarify - what I'm really missing, & what I'm striving to attain again, is a FIT body. I want to be able to hike while on holidays. I want to be able to ride my bike again for more than 5 blocks. I want to be able to do yardwork without exhaustion. I miss exercising (which I used to do daily).

I want to be FIT, not THIN.

I would like to know why you keep substituting "Harley Dealership" with the words "the-place-where-I- worship"

LOL, That the place where "I" worship anyway....~!~!!!!
