Is it the lack of sunshine? The fact that even though it is one of the warmest winters in history we still cannot go out side with out a coat/ gloves/ and maybe ear warmers. (At least not out for a run any way with out being dressed appropriately)
Is it that my body is changing? Am I beginning the phases of pre-menapause? Hormones have been out of control lately. And, after my rotator cuff had been feeling soooo good (post cortisone shot) I attempted some push ups on Saturday. I did 8! It felt OK...by Sunday and still today..it has been sore. The same exact pain is back. I have been icing a lot more and regularly taking Ibuprofen.
And of course, I was 7 pounds lighter back in October when I ran my half marathon. Now, I admit I have eaten a lot (really A LOT) lately and I am exercising but those 7 pounds are not leaving.
The pants are a tad tighter although they do still fit. The scale moves slightly one day and then right back the next.
So......last night I was in bed icing and channel surfing. (I rarely watch TV but what can I say I was in a mood ;-) I caught MY 600 POUND LIFE!
What an eye opener.
The woman they were highlighting and videoing through her situation/life and then her gastric bypass surgery ended up dying 2 weeks after the surgery. I think she was 28. A mother with a teenager and one younger. How depressing, sad, unfortunate, and thought provoking.
At what point do we have to get to ~ to know when enough is enough?! 7 pounds over weight? 10~30~ 50~ 100~ or 350? It's crazy what we are doing to our bodies and our minds. I am thrilled I was able to run 4 miles tonight. I am thrilled I can get myself out of my bed in the morning. I am excited I get to leave my house every day...as often as I want to ...rather than be stuck in my bed, in my room, or in my house for 3 years!!
Our church season of Lent starts tomorrow....I am going to spend a little more time reading the Bible and thinking about what's really important and hopefully get a new perspective on a few things. ;-)
