I RAN 20 minutes on my TREADMILL!!!!!!!!!
Okay okay okay...I know it isn't much for many of you, but for me it is such an amazing accomplishment! I am finally getting my body back! Before surgery and during the steroid days I used to wish and dream about getting my face back...I could have cared less about my body, I just really missed my face. Well, I got that back a couple months after surgery and about a year after that I am finally working out and getting my bootie back in shape!
Chassity turned me on to the Couch 2 5K in 9 weeks program and I am loving it! Granted I am so taking my time getting through each week, but today I made it to the end of week 5! After Chassity got hurt working out I really have made an effort to be careful b/c I didn't want to do the same thing...so my new Bender ball has been used to bonk my kiddo on his bootie and to spook our cats, no crunches yet.
But oh my GOODNESS I feel so so so good! Who says disease can get you down!?! When I had UC never did I think I would be running on a treadmill...and over a mile at that! Holy Hell!!!! I know this all probably sounds super silly, but it just feels really good, you know? And this really is one of those moments where no one but you guys could fully understand, so I almost immediately hopped on here to tell you.
So, thanks again you guys for being here...YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!
