I am sharing a lot of this not to boast about every thing I do but to:
* help myself not feel so alone in all of this. I don’t know why … but the few times I have worked to get in shape have sometimes felt like I was running off on my own path. It might be the silence or the strangeness of taking care of me that I mistake for loneliness but whatever it is, I like sharing it.
* … hold myself accountable.
*… share for/with others so those others don’t have to feel they are going at it alone.
There are many other reasons and I had a list of them flying from my fingertips when I started this post hours ago. Now? I am trying to keep my eyes open on the screen and realizing that it is a good time for a long soak in the tub. I think I’ll swish some epsom salts with as many drops of lavender as I can get away with using safely and hope to crawl in the bed well scented and with feet a bit softer than they have been!
