The body

I wouldn't consider myself a runner, nor a cyclist, nor an avid health nut. I still have to talk myself into working out 9 times out of 10, and there are plenty of excuses I've succumbed to that have kept me on my couch. But.... I like to run, and I greatly enjoy riding a bike and I even eat healthy things on occasion. Above all else, the feeling I get after a physical activity of any kind is completely unique and well worth the sweat.
I enjoy being active. I enjoy being outside. And, as crazy as it may sound, I like to sweat.
The human body has always intrigued me. It is a wondrous thing. How it works together, how intricately everything is connected and how mysterious some aspects of it remain. Today, I am thankful for my body. Although it may not be the shape I would love for it to be, nor look as I dream it to, it is mine. And this body has carried me many places and continued working and pushing me forward even when I felt as though it couldn't. So from now on I am going to try and think of its strengths rather than its "weaknesses".
