What an amazing weekend. I took the Friday off (yes I wanted another long weekend in a row) to head out shopping with the family. Got my son some cool outdoor soccer cleats and a bunch of spring/summery clothes. I love clothes shopping now as its so much easier finding sizes for me. I just have the odd issues now with finding pants to fit my athletic legs. But I rather have that issue then the previous issues I have gone thru. I don't look in the mirror now and say "oh I hate this and that" I look and say hey I have it now but I won't for long. It's who I am and I may never get rid of it. I can't keep hiding behind stuff because I am unhappy with myself. I am so happy with myself now and have no negative thoughts when I look at it. I see a strong body that has carried me thru some crazy races in one year, who helped me create the most amazing son and a body that will carry me thru my next crazy goals. I am strong and tough!!
That night worked out with my trainer and even though I was feeling flat (mostly diet related) I always feel amazing when I leave. My upper body was so sore but I know my body will soon adapt to the new workouts and it will get better. I always love the new program I get.
Saturday was one of the best days ever. My son and got to go to Calgary for my workout and complete it together. We had to run the stairs at Hugh McBluff off of Memorial Drive. Was so much fun and yet so hard. We slightly modified it as it was a bit crowded. We ran up and then ran the path all the way down and repeated it 8 times. Once done we decided that wasn't enough so did a little 4km run thru Princess Island Park. While we did that we did sprints and acted goofy too. I'm sure the people thought we were nuts but we didn't care. We were having such a great time. Finished off that with us enjoying some sushi. Yummy!! My son is getting more adventurous which is awesome to see. During the stairs my asthma was brutal...wasn't anxiety from the stair thing (think my Spartans are helping that issue big time) but it was from the wind and just going up them. The running part my asthma was all happy and easy going and loved it. Strange it likes running now but not the stairs. I wish it would just suck it up and stop bugging me but I guess it can't and I don't have total control over it. I just gotta make my way around that obstacle of breathing. lol I worked thru it regardless and got it all done and more. Can't wait to go back in May again!!
Sunday was our typical Sunday stuff but we hung out together and ended up watching movies together before bed. Perfect end to an amazing weekend! We got groceries and bought a ton of veggies and healthy stuff to have in the house. Love seeing the fridge full of healthy stuff. No more boxed process crap just eating real food. LOVE IT!! My body is seeing changes and slowly and surly I will get there. Nothing happens overnight like we all wish it would and there isn't a magic pill either. Basically you just gotta get off your butt and work hard for it! The reward will be amazing!!
Until Next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
