When I Need A Healing…

Today I met with a new doctor. He talked to me like I was an actual person and not someone there to waste his time. I was astonished. When I left I felt empowered and like I could take on the world. He had encouraged me to break free from some medicine I had been taking and also pushed me to exercise harder to see better results. He said “You can do it” and I believed him. I vowed to work out harder and be at least ten pounds lighter at my next visit — 3 months away.

Because of the weather I chose to head home and not go to the gym, but I knew that I had to push myself once I got home to still exercise. We have a treadmill, an elliptical and a Wii at home – there was sure to be something to keep me moving.

I initially chose the Wii and did some dancing. There is nothing more liberating (or sweat inducing) than dancing, but I often don’t go “all out” when I am out in public. Not so in the comfort of my own home. I let it all out. And it felt good. I was letting go of pain, inhibitions and the fat.

After about an hour I decided to hit the treadmill too. The Wii is great, but it tends to exercise mostly your upper body due to the controller being held in your hand. And I had grown tired of the songs in the playlist and wanted to hear a few of my own. My legs felt sluggish and I wasn’t ready to quit listening to music. I hit my MP3 player and got moving again.

My favorite music flowed through the headphones and into my soul. I let it all out. Frustrations, hurt, laughter, joy, disappointments and triumphs came back to me through the words of every song.

Thirty minutes later I was spent. Sweat poured off of me and the music was blaring so loudly I thought maybe the neighbors would hear it!

I feel great. Sore, but great.

Let me share two song lyrics that really lifted me up during this time on the treadmill:
I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose, fire away, fire away, ricochet, you take your aim, fire away, fire away,  you shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am titanium, you shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am titanium. David Guetta (seriously – just say that to yourself “I am titanium.” You’ll feel better – I guarantee it.)

I’m a rough and tough, I’m a rough and tough, nothing’s gonna knock this girl down. No Doubt

When I need a healing, I just look up the the ceiling, I see the sun coming down, I know its all better now. Flo Rida

I’m bulletproof. Or at least today I feel like I am. And when I need a healing… I just have to look up.

Year of health continues – share your joy, struggles and triumphs with me! Let’s do this together!
