Fence project – I’m in PAIN!

Yesterday’s fence project was extremely physically challenging. I don’t think my body has ever been in this much pain. My forearms cramped up so many times I lost count. At one point after my forearms cramped, all my fingers locked into a “claw” and I had to use my other hand to straighten my fingers! To top things off I also have 3 really bad blisters. At least I didn’t step on any nails or break my thumb. This morning it actually hurts to type. My forearms, shoulders, legs and back are screaming every time I move. The best part is I get to do it again today, because we didn’t finish. My partner didn’t show up until 12:30 PM (he was supposed to be there at 10:00 AM), so by the time he got to my place I had the entire old fence torn down and stacked, and 25 of the 30 fence posts removed. Pulling up those old posts was NOT fun. The guy who is helping me had some outside issues he was dealing with, so he kept taking off for 1-2 hours at a time. I think he put in a good solid 4 hours yesterday. I worked from 10:00 AM until 9:00 PM with less than an hour total breaks. When we finished for the day he was like, “man I’m feeling it!” I just glared at him. Rain or not, he’d better come ready to work today.

Well, it’s monthly picture day again! I lost some fat and some muscle this month. I lost the muscle when I was sick at the beginning of the month (I guess not eating for four days will do that). I’m not real pleased with this month’s pictures, but between being sick and my vacation they could be worse.

No “official” workout today – I’ll be getting plenty of exercise in the yard. I actually hope it does rain on us, as the sun yesterday was brutal. Have a great Sunday!
