Celebrating me

Saturday, May 25, 2013

One of my good Spark Friends told me that I should celebrate me and not judge my worth by what the scale says so I was like that's a great idea! The celebration started yesterday. I got off of work early, took my daughter to Toys R Us and got her big girl bike. Yes, I rock! My daughter was so happy, she rode the bike to the counter and out the door to the car. We went for a long bike ride so Yay me! Then she was having issues with the bike so I was tinkering with it and I said out loud, "Aren't you lucky that you have a Mom who's somewhat handy with tools?" I couldn't get it exactly the way I wanted it so my dad came over this morning so he could help me so I could get it exactly the way I wanted it.

Then I mowed my lawn with the hand push mower, did the trim with the weed whacker, did a little gardening, and my daughter helped me with the start of cleaning out the pool and I thought, "My body is enabling me to do all these things." Then my daughter wanted to ride our bikes to Joanne and Nicoles so we did! I helped Joanne with some projects she had going on until my legs were sore and then rested so I could trek home. She gave me a hug and I thought, "What an awesome friend I am thanks to my body. Thank you body for hanging in there." Then my daughter and I did the trek home. Almost every muscle in my body has reached muscle failure and I love it! I'm going to wind my celebration for tonight by eating Kettle Corn and watching Despicable Me. It was supposed to be a mother/daughter thing, but I wore my daughter out and she's sleeping in her bed. I rock!

Tomorrow the celebration will continue with a trip to the Kite Festival and then I think Monday is going to be kind of laid back since I go back to work on Tuesday and my daughter has school.

So screw you mirrors. Screw you scale. I'm a thin person just trying to get out. LOL

    Our trek to a healthier life is not to impress others but to make us healthier and thus happier.
