I am so sorry that I have mistreated you today. I forgot to acknowledge your beauty and strength. When work forced me to miss the cardio class I decided to punish you with too many crackers and chocolate. I am sorry. You do not deserve to be treated in such a way. It wasn't your mistake. It was my mistake.
You deserve so much respect. You deserve to be worshiped not chastised and littered. You, my strong body, have carried me the last 27 years and I pray you will continue to do that for the next 60+ years. Each Saturday when I say "run", you run. Each day when I ask you to work, clean and cook you don't give attitude. You gladly accept any challenge. You know the truth in life and don't get confused by the stresses of life. You are an amazing work of art.
Sadly for several years I behaved everyday like I did today. But you didn't turn your back on me when I gained 40+ pounds. You didn't give up on me. Instead you stayed with me through all the challenges and attempts to lose weight. And now when I feel like I am moving in the right direction, I stupidly make poor choices. I give you garbage and expect beauty from you. Please forgive me. Unfortunately, however, I can safely say that this won't be the last day that I shove trash at you. I will try to do better but know that won't always happen. Continue to forgive me.
To atone for my poor mistakes I can only promise to do better beginning now. I wish I could go back and make better choices but sadly I can't. I can however improve my choices. I can select better quality food. I can give you plenty of sleep. I can give you enough time to complete tasks instead of making you feel rushed and hurried. I can look at you with appreciative eyes. I can also say "thank you" for runs and strength sessions. So Body, again I am sorry. I will always try to do better. All I ask is that you don't give up on me!
P.S. Thanks for the rocking curves! I am curvaceous and beautiful!
