Anywho, today's blog feed talked about thinking about your body as a home.
"And when we perceive our body as an object, we deny and diminish its value. We lose sight of the fact that this body is where we live. This body is our home. We forget that, just as the house we live in may look a bit worn over time with its sagging shutters and fading paint, we still value it and care for it, understanding that this home offers us shelter and comfort."
I really liked this analogy. Everyone knows how much I like to do home stuff and be in my home. Maybe I can start treating my body with as much care and creativity as I do my home?
On a related note, I went to Crossfit yesterday. We did a nice warm up and presses.
The WOD was
Kettle bell swings
My good buddy Kristin did the WOD with me with some modifications. We walked 400m instead of running and I used lighter weights for WB and KB (6 and 25lbs respectively). And it was perfect. It was a good workout (I was perspiring profusely and sucking wind appropriately), took around the same time as it did for everyone else and P.S. I did it bald and one week post chemo#2. I win!
But best of all, my pal Will let me shave his head in solidarity. It was so fun!
