Whoops. I forgot about my gratitude post yesterday! Well, no one's perfect, right? Well, these two gratitude posts are related to each other anyway, so I guess it works out that I'm posting them together.
I want to say that I'm thankful for my body. Despite the fact that I don't feed it as well as I should, am overweight, have awful eyesight...it treats me well. I can walk, jump, run, type, and I'm rediscovering my muscles. My heart beats, my lungs breathe, my brain functions...how blessed am I! I have strong feet and legs, a butt that won't quit, a uterus which birthed three children, breasts that fed those children, arms which can hug, snuggle, hold groceries and babies. I have hands which type, therefore supporting my family, which make meals, can sew, draw, paint, take pictures. I have a mostly strong back, ears that can hear, eyes that can still see (thank you, glasses!) and hair which people envy. Yes, my body is a gift and it's my job to love it!
Which leads me to what I'm thankful for next: exercise! I have not always loved exercise, and I still can't say that I love it. But I am thankful that I'm getting back on that bandwagon. I have kept up on my running for a few months now...getting better at it. Now I started Kettleworx and my goodness it is kicking my butt, but I can feel changes. Hoping to lose some weight before I (hopefully) get pregnant next year!
