I went swimming yesterday and as I was doing my 100 laps I kind of daydreamed about the Olympics. I thought how do they do it. I watched the cross country guys do 30 miles and I was just amazed about it. The commentator talked about how are bodies have only one hour of think it was semitone, nutrition in our body, then the fat takes over. Well these guys had no fat, they are so thin. So if they hit the mark where this hour is over, they are in trouble. There is nothing left to feed there body to go on more. Plus no place to get it from. How can they be doing this exercise which he said burns and uses more exercise than any other sport. With no reserve. I could just imagine how much they could eat after one of there marathon runs. The endurance is just amazing. Plus the exhaustion when they finish they can barely move. It is really gulling yet they love the challenge. I just found it something that this was mentioned and it was something I never realized about these athletes I did not realize that this happened that you shut down because your body has nothing to put forth. Guess I was really deep in thought of what we as humans do to our body. How we push it to extremes in a sport. We really do have the most amazing bodies that god gave us. When we watch the Olympics it gives you so much proof of this fact.

I feel myself push my body as I swim to just do more. There is a great feeling of power over my body, plus there is a great feeling for me of feeling so much healthier. So when I feel this good when I do why do I fight to get it started. Why are those voices in my head still after 6 months trying to talk me out of doing something that I know is so good for my body. i just cannot figure this out in my head. I so wish I could still get a body I will love and be proud of, still not sure if I will get it at almost 60 years of age. But I am not going to stop trying this is for sure. I have had the best 6 months of my life. I am learning to take control of my body and my life. This is so important to my health and growth and well being to do this for me and my family even if they do not care what I am doing.

I know I have so many family members that do not give a hill of beans what I am doing. But it has become important to me to do it for me and the people here I have met and have become family too. You are important to me and have become a part of my life. Thank you for giving me your times and caring it means a lot. emoticon emoticon emoticon
