So I just finished washing and cutting up all this:
The great thing about only having one daycare kiddo this summer is that I can take him to the store with me! So off we went to Aldi’s this morning to do some grocery shopping. After I put him down for a nap, I got busy washing and cutting up the fruits and veggies. They are all stored in glass containers now that I know how horrible plastic is. I feel absolute guilt over having plastic daycare toys, but unfortunately, I just can’t afford to replace those right now.
I’ve also been doing something active each day. Sunday, J and I did stretching and a leg workout together. Yesterday morning, I got up and did w1/d1 of c25k. I was only able to do the jogging part for the first half of it and then had to switch to all walking, but I will try again tomorrow. Unfortunately, my legs just don’t like me anymore. I used to be able to run 5k’s (slowly) but now, whether it’s walking or jogging some part of my lower leg hurts. I can’t walk long before my calves really hurt and jogging hurts my shins. I’m hoping, the more I do it, the better it will get, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the fibro. Today, I walked for 30 minutes right after I put the little one down for his nap. I switched up speed and incline within that 30 minutes.
Car update: We’re trying to find a refurbished motor, but so far, no such luck. Well, let me take that back. I think he found 1 but it’s $1600 and has 120,000 miles on it. I don’t know what’s going to happen with us financially, but I know it’s really weighing on J. I just keep looking him in the eyes and telling him it’s okay, just have Faith. Somehow, someway, God always brings us through it.
