Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

Training Continues

Well, it's coming along... training that is. I've joined a new gym, and I'm trying out some different classes. So far Piloxing, Pilates and Pi/Yo have been on the list.

Today was a six miler on the treadmill. It wasn't fun, but I got it done. I did have to stop mid-run to use the facilities (one of the perks of running at home in your basement is the bathroom is right upstairs). Hubby was kind enough to let me sleep in today AND still get my run in. Woo Hoo.

Once my six miler was finished, Lil Man and I went to the new gym. This was his first time, and I wasn't sure how he would handle it. But apparently he did fine. They did give him his pacifier (which is fine). He only has it in the crib, the car and in 'stressful Mommy is leaving me with strangers' situations. I actually had to drag him out of the child's center at the gym. So hopefully he is going to do fine there.

The count down continues for the Marathon.. only... ten... weeks... left... we'll see if I'm ready.

The long run this weekend is 13 miles. So if I complete this run, I am up to half of the distance.

Here's to hoping that all of my body parts cooperate.
