As you may (or may not know), I am planning on running a marathon this year. I’ve been pretty pleased with my progress and the strength and stamina that has increased in the last several months.
It had been several years since I had run regularly – and I was amazed at how quickly my body responded to the movement.
Unfortunately, the physical transformation has been rather, umm… lacking.
My body seems thicker; my clothes are snugger. I rationalized that it was just muscle being built. Things not being as squishy as before; you’ll never see a muscular muffin top. That fat rolls over the tops of the pants for a reason – fat moves, pushes and rolls.
I didn’t want to consider the alternative. Not when I’d been sweating my butt off at the gym.
At least I thought I was sweating my butt off:
Last night, we were all gathered around the table, getting ready to eat. Quinn passed by and quietly said something to Sean…
Apparently, I have a “jiggly butt”.
Nothing is more humbling than a reality check from your five year old.
