For May's SPT challenge Lelly went back into the vault to an spt challenge she really loved.
I remember it well not only because it was a fun one, but also because it was during that challenge that I became a brunette. Who knows maybe this time around I'll go back to being blonde. Hmmm...
Tuesday, May 5~ something old
Tuesday, May 12~ something new
Tuesday, May 19~ something borrowed
Tuesday, May 26~ something blue
Take it literally, take it figuratively, but by all means, make a commitment to complete all four challenges for the month of may!
And here it is, something old. I'm not necessarily talking about my husband and myself. Though we might be considered old by some, we are still relatively young to others, and to ourselves, well, I don't think we'll ever feel completely grown up. But what is old in this picture is our backs and the pain they are giving us.
My back is tweaked from my neck to my ribs and Rick's lower back is all messed up. He is absolutely miserable. It's hard for me to see my big, strong, hard working, independent man in so much pain and it is frustrating for him too. This is a man who never stops. Come rain, shine, barf, fever, chills, pneumonia, whatever... he's going to get the job done. And he's still working now even with his severe pain.
Neither one of us wants to have to slow down because our bodies decide to get old and run down. This is my number one motivation for working out everyday. Sure I want a cut, ripped, toned body, and I dream of my own Valerie Bertinelli bikini moment, but what drives me most is that I know this is move it or loose it time. I have to fight to keep my body running well and with every year that passes it's only going to get harder.
In fact I feel myself growing older even as I sit here.
So if you'll excuse me, I'm off to work out.
Even though I HATE it with a fiery passion.
