It began with my monthly trip to Costco. The one where I have Oskar strapped to my chest, the other two boys sitting in the cart, and then our month's worth of groceries in the back of the cart. I'm sure it's a sight to see me pushing that (way-overloaded) baby out of the store and to our car. (like, our cart was creaking whenever I had to turn kind of overloaded)
But I didn't stop there. We're finally gearing up to get our backyard landscaped, so in preparation all the holes Yula has dug need to be filled and all the dirt blown to the back of the yard needs to be hauled back to where it came from. So this afternoon I tackled that.
I'm gonna feel it tomorrow.
And I'm already feeling the blisters forming on my hands.
One of my goals for this year is to get strong. I've never been particularly athletic and my weight has never been an issue, so instead of the typical weight loss goals people make I just want to get strong.
I think today definitely counted. Manual labor is not for sissies.
