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.

Feeling Pretty Good

I'm feeling pretty good post marathon. I ran 2 miles today on the TM at the gym. Nothing fancy - haven't been to the gym with Lil Man in close to a month. I wanted to give him a chance to play, and I thought I'd start working out the kinks from the marathon.

Overall, it was great to be back at the gym.

I'm thinking my next race is about 8-9 weeks from now. I'm planning on a Half.

You didn't think I was going to stop running after I finished the marathon did you? ;)

My bling so far...
