40-day challenge update – day 13

Over the last two weeks there have definitely been some super lame “workouts” that I’ve claimed as exercise. However, I feel like I’m actually progressing! It’s those days of weak exercise days that I can convince my mind as being successful and keeping this thing going. Yes, I’m playing Jedi mind-tricks on myself. I’m so gullible!

Anyway, consistency of ACTUAL exercise is happening these days. Last week I got out on my bike three times and went on numerous walks. The last two days I have went walking with my hunny. Last night we even convinced the teen and pre-teen kiddos to come with us! Then we saw fireflies!!! I had never seen fireflies before and it felt purely magical. They all laughed at me as I gasped out over and over “There’s one over there! And over there…. and there… and there!!!!” It was great fun. I really do love the rural lifestyle for a number of reasons.

Tonight, for the first time in a LONG time, I went for a run. A RUN. Not a walk with some running in it. A RUN with some walking. It felt so good. It was hard and the body I am inhabiting still doesn’t feel like my body, but it is getting there. Everyday I feel like I’m heading in the right direction towards a healthier body, mind, and spirit.

This is a firefly!
