The battle of the body or your "will" to keep on going.......

Saturday, July 31, 2010

This last month has been an incredible month for me. Just adding adding adding in the miles to get ready for this amazing 3 day walk I'll be doing in 9 weeks.....

What is a trip is watching how my body is adjusting to the massive miles I'm doing. I'm amazed at how much the human body can do sometimes....my body....the body of a fabulous 51 year old woman :)))) that still has a good 40-50 pounds to lose is walking between 25-30 miles A WEEK !

What I'm enduring through this last month physically, to put it mildly, is challenging me. From a scary chest pain episode, so ongoing leg swelling and now back spasms...Trying to figure out what to eat, how much to eat, to continue to fuel my body to handle the huge amount of exercise I'm doing.

The one thing I do know is that I also have an incredible sense of "will" to continue forward. Once I've made my mind up to do something, I will get it done. I just now need "my body" to be in sync with my mind....hmmmmmm trying to find out how to do that HA HA HA

I also have the wonderful sense of being optomistic and positive..it has been challenging me......I have laid in bed the last two nights and wondering why the hell all these things are happening to my body....you all know how things can be worse at night right? Then I turn it around in my head....remember my strong will...and I know I can't put any "negative" energy into what's happening right now....I NEED TO STAY POSITIVE.....that will only help to make things better.

So today is Saturday July 31,2010....today I will let my body rest....it's what it's telling me I need to do....tomorrow is another day.....

I will accomplish this goal just as I will accomplish all of my other goals....one step at a time!

    Kay...you are probably the most ambitious...motivating...positive person I know on sparks. I sometimes worry about you however. You push so hard and you have to listen to your body. You want things now. I totally get that. I am so proud of you my friend. You have gotten me to walk. I will NEVER forget the rush I had when the Vixens all walked together. I was doing it alone and you not only joined me, but got the others to follow you. I could have never done that.

    Yes...listen to your body....not your heart and mind.

    You are truly a good person. I mean that. I am proud to call you FRIEND.
