It was Epic

After I had my first baby, I was still recovering from my first post-baby-body-shock when I lamented to my husband one day.

Me: *sigh* Someday I'll weight 1?0 again... I just know it!

Hubby: ......... Hunny...... *spoken with a kind of soft, pity-type voice* you'll never weight 1?0 again.

*GASP*

I know right? I've never let him live that one down.

Ever.

I think I'll have it inscribed on his tombstone.

Still, ever since then I have made it my goal to get down to 1?0 pounds after each baby, and so far, I've been able to do it.

Well, with Claira sleeping through the night and hardly nursing anymore, I'm finally feeling up to accomplishing that goal again. So last night, I went running for the first time since having her.

So there I was, minding my own business, focused on not hyperventilating as I jogged along at a pace of half a mile a year, when... *BIFF*!

My shoe hit a dip in the road and the loose gravel there all wrong, and I went down.

Landing on both knees and palms, but more heavily on the right, the momentum pushed me forward, banging my right shoulder as I actually flipped and landing flat on my back.

Even though I was wearing capri-length pants and a sweater, I still came home with scratched and bruised left knee and palm, and a torn up and bleeding right knee, palm, and shoulder.

Oh ya.... it was epic.

I was almost sad there was no one around to witness it.

I guess this puts a whole new twist on "no pain, no gain."

...you're not fooling me with that modest little question mark - I'm pretty sure I haven't weighed 1?0 pounds since High School :)

good luck with that walking and chewing gum thing :)

Ouch! hope you're ok!

I got down to my pre-pregnancy weight after baby #1, but it's still not my ideal weight.
It stinks because all the girls in my family, my sisters and my husband's sisters, are all gloriously skinny. Ugh.

Well OUCH!!

Hope you are OK.

I am super impressed that you keep getting down to you 1?0 weight! THAT is epic!!! Good job!

Shoot! You may be sore tomorrow. Hope it doesn't hold you up...

Oh, how come I never get to do things like that with no witnesses??? There is always way too many people around who are ever so willing to laugh!! Hope that you feel better!

Would you like me to kiss it and make it all better?

Seth said...

Ouch, sorry. :( At least you made it spectacular. Reminds me of the time I biffed it on my bike at Education Week years ago.

Oh, yeah, thought I'd let you know, your keyboard is broken, one of the numbers keeps outputting a ?. :P
