I'm Over It

Monday, November 18, 2013

I'm over my bad attitude. I felt sheepish and petty reading posts from people who have or have had major health issues while I complain about wrinkles and a diagnosis. The doctor didn't even put me on meds for blood pressure. I should look at it as a warning and encouragement to eat even better. I still may make it to 65 without being on any prescriptions regularly.

So today I am thankful for my health and fitness. I'm looking forward to the half marathon in 6 days. After my niece and nephew encouraged me, I also signed up for a 5K six days after that. My sister who lives in Tucson will be visiting and wants to cheer for all three of us. I told them I might be slow as I may not be totally recovered, but it will be okay. I'll listen to my body and run hard only if I feel like it.

So, I'm back on a positive track, accepting my 64 year old body, and thankful, truly thankful, for all I have, including my great SparkFriends!
