Back to Basics

IT’S BACK TO THE BASICS!
Lace up those Asics,
how’s the Gatorade taste, Kid?
We’re at the races
and I’m intimidated by the fast pace,
it paces.
And times ticking,
I don’t wanna waste it,
cuz life is cause and effect
and I have yet to see the affect of me yet.
BUT I WILL!
I WANT TO GIVE BEFORE I GET,
I WANT TO NOT COST A CENT
I’m not meant to be a burden
or a pest
I’M AN INVESTMENT!
Cause I’m DRIVEN,
I’m not hidden!
YOU SEE ME!
I’m on Fire!
I love the truth
I’m not a liar,
I can’t see a mountain
and not climb it.
So I’m putting my feet to the pavement
Blood sweat and tears?
I GAVE IT!
Didn’t think I could make it
BUT I MADE IT!
It hurt.
For me wisdom came in devastating spurts.
The dream I chase
is so close I can taste it,
I’ve been given a gift
I’M NOT GONNA WASTE IT!

 

Beginning tomorrow my blog will have a Fitness section, where I’m going to be writing down my workouts.  If anyone wants to join me in getting back in shape, I’m 38 years old and at a place where I need to start respecting this body instead of abusing it, because a lifetime of being pretty rough on this body, preservatives and Monsanto are beginning to reflect on my blood pressure…

…I’m a work in progress.  (I used to joke that the only reason I’m still alive is because of all the preservatives I eat 🙂

I don’t look like the above picture anymore, FYI.  Perhaps 3 years ago?  But I’ve fallen off the “self care wagon.”  Truth be told, I may never look like this again…but every day that I have two arms and two legs to move with, to be my vehicle while I roam this Earth that is my home?  Is a day I will be closer to feeling more comfortable in my own skin.  No matter what the outside may look like…

Back to basics…:  SELF CARE.
