Still Sore

Aidan requires his back to be massaged every night before he can go to sleep.  It’s a terrible habit that I started a long time ago and just can’t seem to break it.  Anyway, I fell asleep for 2 hours in his bed Thursday night while I was doing that.  When I woke up I felt like I had had a nap and was wide awake for the next 3 hours.  I think I finally fell back to sleep around 1am.  Getting up at 5 am Friday morning was not happening.  I ended up sleeping until almost 8am when Aidan came in and told me it was morning time!   Thanks dear-heart!

I had another smoothie for breakfast.

It was the same as the others except I added half a banana.

I was still incredibly sore from Wednesday’s workout so I decided to skip the gym in favor of some active recovery.  Shopping!


Before we left, I ate a Z-Bar and grabbed a Vitamin Water. Thankfully, those held me over for a while because we shopped through lunch!

We went next door to Payless to see about a certain pair of boots.  I had gone in about 2-3 weeks ago looking for the perfect pair of nude wedges.  I am not a fan of heels, but I think wedges are adorable with shorts and dresses.  I did not find any wedges, but I found an incredible pair of riding boots on sale.  They were normally $60, but marked down to a random $31.  I have been really wanting a pair of riding boots this year, but I have a hard time paying more than $50 for shoes unless they are running shoes.  I also have a hard time buying things out of season.  I resigned myself to the fact that riding boots and I were not meant to be this year & maybe I could ask for them on my next birthday.  After trying them on, rejoicing over the fact that I could zip them up over my calves (long story from my chubby days), & marveling at how comfortable they were, I put them back on the shelf.  Crying faceBroken heart I thought, “I will come back in a few weeks.  If they are still there it’s a sign and I will get them.”  Well guess what?


There they were, waiting for me after all this time!

I was so happy that  I took Aidan to get a milkshake.  I may or may not have had several sips.
