I got to rack up the fitness minutes yesterday and today. I live in Denver & our basement flooded out, the wall down there cracked, and we had to dig trenches to send the water away from the house. We sandbagged the back door, kept either bailing or moving a sump pump from window well to window well, all in pouring rain. I feel like I've been beaten all over. Everything hurts, and now that my weekend is over, I get to go back to work tomorrow! Ugh. Double, triple ugh. And even being so stressed out I could barely eat and working hard for hours, the scale says I gained weight. I know its fluids I'm retaining from stress and inflammation, but it feels like added insult to injury. So grateful my partner helped so much and my dad and his neighbor drove 3-1/2 hrs avoiding closed roads to come and help us. Couldn't ask my neighbors for help since they were all flooded too! I just hope these storms are over.
