Oh the pool how she beckoned. 90 plus degrees outside and that cool blue water, cutting though it,
So I'm learning Fitness can be more than the gym.
It can be putting on dance music and boogie buttin around the house like a wild monkey hula dancer til I can barely breath.
It can be swimming with a bunch of crazy kids having a great time like your 11 again.
It can be fixing that flat tire on my bike Gypsy and getting her roadworthy so I can ride next week.
It can be so much more you just have to keep yourself open.
Because its all about getting moving, and staying moving, and honoring what it brings out.
Sometimes it brings out all the anger and I swing those ropes til my arms can't lift them again.
Sometimes its frustration at things I can't control but I CAN control and focus on stepping up and stepping down, stepping up and stepping down, during my Cross Fit.
Sometimes its a workout where I just don't have any energy left and I just sit in the car on the way home and cry because I'm so exhausted and all the sadness I have bottled up comes out.
Sometimes its that quiet smile and satisfaction at having done something. that I
did it JUST FOR ME.
