Have you ever had a love/hate relationship with anyone or anything? It's a stressful thing. It can be a wonderful thing in it's time. Mostly though, just stressful and thought provoking. I am currently having a love/hate relationship with my treadmill...ok really maybe it's just my body I have this relationship with....? I have to think about this a minute.
Ok, I DO have that relationship with my body ( I know Susan, I hear you now...stop worrying about your body when you have "bigger" things to concern yourself with!!!) but at this very moment the primary Love/Hate relationship is with my treadmill.
I got on it to walk and promptly started sweating and breathing hard. What? I thought walking was easy and therapuetic? hahaha the joke is on me. Walking is not easy when you haven't done it in a long time and you aren't feeling well due to many reasons. Not the least of which is having poisonous chemicals in ones body. And a cough over a month old, and weak muscles due to lack of exercise, and no will power, and no fun work out partner, and and and.....
AND I am going to fight through this Love/Hate relationship because I need strong muscles, and lungs, and I need to feel better while having chemicals put into my body. I need to help do my part to fight this "flippin" C. I want to feel strong again. It makes me sad, longing for winter of 09/10 when my Really good friend in Kodiak, Amy, and I worked out almost every morning that winter. We would hit the gym at 5:30am like a religion. We walked, ran, lifted weights, rode, stretched, did the precor, swam, on and on and on we did this and each lost a bunch of weight and started feeling strong and great. I want to feel that again!!! Amy can you come here? I need you and the gym! I need it to be that easy again...short drive, get in and get home before John even has to get up for work.
It seems I have a long way to go. I have obstacles to overcome. I have work to DO!!!
See you down the road.
Two Scriptures to think on.
1 Corinthians 13:7 "Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things."
Hebrews 6:15 "And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise."
