Retail Therapy

About a week after the miscarriage, I told (rather asked) Chris if I could purchase some new running clothes and running shoes. After all, I’d been into road biking the last eight years. My work-out attire consisted of cycling jerseys and spandex. I had decided if I wasn’t going to have a growing belly, I was going to have a flat one. I knew sweating would be a way for me to not only get in shape but also to process and heal. Exercise has always been an outlet for me. I wanted goals to push myself and see progress – something to get me out of bed on the tough days. For the last several weeks, I’ve enjoyed pounding the pavement while listening to my heart pounding in my head – yes, I’m VERY out of shape. Alexa loves riding in the jogger stroller and I enjoy listening to my Nano since my sweet hubby added several new albums for me to rock out to. I’m loving it!! I’m definitely not ready to run a 5k or 10k but I’m getting there and feeling stronger every day. I know Chris thought the receipt for all of this shopping madness was a bit absurd (I forgot to mention I also ordered a new swimsuit and purchased a 2 mos tanning membership for further motivation) but I told him “retail therapy” is a lot cheaper than the real stuff. He agreed and has enjoyed a few runs with his girls too. Can’t wait to go shopping (I mean jogging) again!
