I am incredibly happy this morning.
Nothing has changed in the externals. My back still hurts at about a 5/10 (had two full hours of relief after my visit to Backfit Chiropractic yesterday thanks to Jacquie’s massage and Dr. Vogel’s adjustment). My ends still won’t speak to each other, let alone meet. I have no medical insurance at this point, nor any hope of getting anymore due to actually really needing the coverage and so have absolutely no idea of what my bloodwork looks like or if anything is growing again, and yet, I am totally and competely, Happy.
Because today, anything seems possible.
Today, for the first time in my long, coordinationally challenged, plus-size life, I rode a bicycle.
I rode it for a mile.
I am still giggling about it.
I did this after swimming two laps (thats four lengths or 100 meters), twice plus a few lengths to equal 14 lengths or 7 laps. (So swam a total 350 meters)
This was accomplishing the impossible for me.
The other stuff will come in time.
I can ride a bike.
I am happy.
Thank you to all who have helped me get this far, I didn’t quit before the miracle happened because of your support.
It is good for me to have goals that rest on the things I can control like how I use my time, what I eat, how I dream, and how I apply my discipline; because the things I cannot control (like the economy and politics and other people and some portions of my physical vessel) somehow become small and insignificant when I amaze myself. The irony is that the blog I will edit and post later on about middles will actually be posted after the breakthrough.
Also BTW, my DIL is kicking butt on this training thing. As far as Athena novices go she is the Goddess!

Joanne, I am so proud of you I can barely see the computer screen my eyes are so misty. Well done! Very well done! Wind to thy wings (and pedals), milady!
Thank you. You know you and your lovely lady were part of this triumph. Maybe by next spring I can join you in a “real” ride!
