Know that Stevie Wonder song "Love's In Need of Love Today?"
Well, 'Drea's in need of non-scale victories today.
When I saw a post, Screw Plateau, It's A Drought, over at by Body By Pizza, it summed up, precisely, how I've been feeling. I'm not going to dwell on the scale but I can't say that I haven't noticed it has moved north a tad bit and the seesaw variation is the same two or three pounds...
The first non-scale victory begins with lotion which I was putting on when I felt something odd; I thought the oddness was some kind of growth. Who knows? My skin does weird things and is so sensitive at times.
It turns out the growth was one of my bones. I can feel bones, people, without going on some excavational expedition. I can feel the bones when I trace my eye sockets and I can distinguish the shape of my rib cage now.
For a fleeting moment, I felt vulnerable like someone could run into me and break my new-found bones but no one call Dr. Paul Weston; I've got a handle on that feeling...Not that there's anything wrong with therapy -- to paraphrase a Seinfeldism.
A few weeks ago, I was over at my friend Hazira's when her friend, Rabija, came over. Rabija was kind enough to stop by and take a few IKEA orders before heading to Chicago the next day.
I hadn't seen Rabija since we were poolside in '09. Hazira escorted Rabija out the door and, upon returning, informed me that Rabjia said that I didn't need to lose jedan (Bosnian for one) gram. Wow.
What has been one of your biggest *wow* moments during your fitness journey?
