I love feeling sore!

No pain, no gain. I love being sore. I miss feeling this way so much! But is it enough to get me out of bed in the morning and lift weights. No, sadly. But I want it to be!

Thank you for your well wishes for my MIL. She saw the oncologist this morning and it is Stage 3 squamous cell lung cancer. But my husband doesn't know anything more than that. Hopefully this is yet another wake up call for him to be more healthy. To be healthy at all! He just doesn't want to be. Everytime I bring up being healthy, he throws my weight in my face. But was he doesn't understand, or doesn't care to, is I think about being healthy Am I doing what I should to be healthy? No. But I WANT to be. I want to be healthy for me and for him and for our kids. He doesn't seem to care to want to be healthy. And if he does, he doesn't vocalize it at all.

The Patriots going to the Super Bowl 10 years later is a reminder that it has been 10 years since I was active. On December 31, 2001 I decided to attempt to hike Mt Rainier in August of 2002. I spent 7 1/2 months working out and lifting weights and hiking, hiking, hiking. I never made it to the top, as altitude sickness stopped me, but I was damn proud of myself. But I was burnt out. I came down from the mountain and haven't hiked once since. Over the past 9+ years I've gained weight and been less and less healthy (along with dating and then marrying my husband and having 2 kids!).

I just want to get back to that healthy person so badly!

  1. I somehow missed the post mentioning MIL. I'm sorry to hear about that; it's rough to deal with cancer in the family.

    Great job with the running. As soon as I feel up to it I am getting back into running and also want to start faster.

    You've had a busy ten years, but look what you have to show for it. Yes, some extra weight, but also a husband and two children. Great job! You will get fit're well on your way there!
