Monday: Sadness in Ounces

INSPIRATIONAL PHOTO OF THE DAYSomething I need to remind myself about daily.My plan for this week goes as follows:

Mon: Run x 2 / Tues: Bike and Crossfit / Wed: Run x 2 / Thurs: Bike and Crossfit / Fri: Run

I might take Sat AND Sun off.  So Monday was my first run(s) since before the holiday.  I was out BEFORE the sun came up and I have to say it was a bit freaky.  And DARK.  Being on the canal in the dark was odd.  But I will do it again.  Oh, and I saw my Owl again!  I assume it is the same owl but who really knows.  He (she) was so gorgeous, just sitting on a power line along the canal.  That alone was worth the early run.

Run: 5 miles / 55:55

Run: 4 miles / 45:50

I also started tracking my food again today.  It is harder, compensating for the double runs without going too far.  But something is off if I am doing all of this exercise and can’t seem to shed a few lbs.  And the fastest way to figure out where I am going wrong is to track everything.

In that spirit, I even measured out my wine for dinner.  And this is what 5 ounces looks like.  It made me very sad to see.  As J pointed out, I need a smaller glass to make the portion look bigger.  Just like smaller jeans make my ass look bigger.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
