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…

Please Like Me!

I've spent part of my afternoon 'googling' trying to find out how to promote myself. Who does that?!? Seriously, who takes time out of their busy life to try to find a way to promote their blog/facebook fan page? (By the way, my fan page is www.facebook.com/TodaysWordsOfGlass) Check it out and like it pretty please. ;)

I giggled like a little girl when I told my husband I got another 'like' - that makes 25 I said enthusiastically.  He looked at me like - what is wrong with you? He's probably thinking that I really shouldn't have taken all of those antihistamines yesterday. Maybe I am on a Zyrtec buzz.

But yesterday was rough rough rough with the allergies. At 10pm last night, I told my husband, "Listen, I took an Allegra this morning, 2 hours later with the pharmacist's ok, I took a Zyrtec. I'm thinking it's probably frowned upon for me to take another one, but I'm in bad shape. So I'm taking another Zyrtec. If something happens, tell the paramedics I took the 3 allergy pills within the same 24 hours."... And then I drifted off to sleep.

How do I feel today? I got up feeling like I was hit by an antihistamine bus. Wow, I'm pretty sure that's what hangovers feel like. But I've been sneeze free for most of the day. I still can't breathe, but it's better than yesterday. So tonight I will take (just the one) Zyrtec and hope that after it gets into my system, that it will help. I have a 10 mile run that I need to complete tomorrow. 

I had planned on doing a 10K today, but since I ran the 5K last weekend, I decided to skip it and get my LR in instead. I hope by tomorrow morning I can push through 10 miles. 

More importantly, I hope I'm not down for the count after my LR tomorrow. This pollen has been brutal! 


  1. I am your newest follower on google+, FB and the rest of the Social networks. Look forward to reading your blog as I am getting ready to train for the first time in over 18 mths for a half marathon in October.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Feel free to stop by my page at http://jmacreativemess.blogspot.com


    1. Thanks! You have a great blog. I'm not following you also!

  2. I've thought about setting up a FB account and then I never do (other than have my own personal one). I run tired of the social media, ha ha :) I'm trying to decide if I really want to push my blog or just let it be as it is, I just run out of time for it all. Keep me posted on what you think about using FB for your blog :)

    1. Since I only have about 30ish likes, I haven't decided yet. (ha). But I have 2 different blogs - one for running and the other my ramblings about being a stay-at-home mom. So I thought combining it on the FB page might work. But the verdict is still out!

      I think you have a much stronger following on your blog than I do. Honestly, if you decide to do a FB page, I think you'd do well. I know I'd 'like' ya ;)

    2. Ha ha ... we'll see. I never use FB other than to keep up with high school people and half the time that gets exhausting :)

  3. Promoting blogs appears to be a full time job. I seen other's who have a twitter and facebook site too. Allergies are aweful to have especially as a runner. I'm glad to read you consulted with the pharmacist before taking additional antihistamines. Your tenacity shows in your blog and your running.

    1. Yeah, I definitely called the pharmacist. I am better, but the allergy meds are making me feel bleh! I'm hoping that in another week or so that the tree pollen will be better. I have a Half in about 6 weeks, and I need to get back on track with my training.

      And yes, I'm finding promoting a blog can be a lot of work. So far it't been fun. I'm not sure it's been successful since my followers are scarce. :)
