It happens to the best of us...

I've been a wee bit discouraged about my body lately.  I always put on a few extra pounds (which are noticeable on my petite frame) during the carefree summer months, and usually towards the middle of every August I buckle down and exercise more regularly and eat way healthier.

Tonight, while walking Shaka, I realized how lame it is that I am agonizing over a few pounds and started thinking about how awesome my body truly is.  For starters, my body totally swept, vacuumed, and mopped the entire downstairs.  It also did 45 minutes on the elliptical & the hamstring weight machine for 15 minutes.  It came up with some awesome ideas for my lesson plan this week, It took in a beautiful sunset, and tasted a juicy chunk of watermelon.  Did I mention that it also enjoyed a quick dip in the pool? My body's pretty rad, I don't think I'll be so hard on it.

She wasn't!


This picture is oh, so cool for so very many reasons.
