Having Fun, Finding Joy

I have the day off today and it is glorious.  I decided today I was going to have some fun on my day off.  I got some sleep, woke up, poked around the internet, and then remembered that I had a declared war on my muffin top and that I better get out and exercise.  I was glad I did.

The weather outside was great, so I decided to go on a bike ride.  As I rode my bike I felt like a little kid.  I was listening to some of my favorite tunes: I'm Yours by Jason Miraz and Viva la Vida by Coldplay.   I felt the wind on my face, I was smiling, and singing at the top of my lungs.  I was riding  with no hands and waving at cars.  It was ridiculous, but I felt so free and full of life.

This is a old picture pre-muffin top, but it shows how I felt today. 

I read this post this morning by my new favorite and talented blogger at http://funininfertility.blogspot.com/.  She reminded me to find 
beauty in the "in between" stage of life.  So I did just that.

Don't forget to vote for me (JRS #7) in the Limerick Contest.  See the button on the side bar to get over there.

  3. Hi. Thanks so much for finding us and all your wonderful comments on BOTH blogs!!!!!

    I don't really see John and I as much of an inspiration but I'm happy that we were able to remind you of the need for "enjoying the present". I think we all need that reminder from time to time (I know I do).

    I was reading through some of your posts this morning and about spit Diet Coke all over my monitor when you said something about having a unicorn in your uterus. :) So awesome!

  4. Yea for a day off of work and some fun exercise :)
