Dear Body, I write you a lot.


Dear Body, I hope 7 hours of sleep is enough. Please get through your workout tomorrow. It's a toughie but Saturday will be fun (TurboKick!).

Dear Joints & Bones, You're only 25. I promise to take meds and calcium if you promise to behave.

Dear Hips, We're going to get you open! More yoga comin' at ya.

I was once able to do toe stand and would love to do it again...

Not so intense though...


Dear Body (again), I don't need to be a fitness model or a yogi. I just want to return to April or May 2010. Its been a struggle for too long.

I'm going to feed you more and work you out gentler. You shed the fat off the muscles. Make me feel confident again.

But remember, I'll love you no matter what. I may not always show it, but it's there.

Dear San Diego, No rain please. Every time I visit, it rains. Change my mind about you. Also, let there be less traffic and good parking.


  1. I found you through your Friday Letters link and am excited to be a new follower!

    I feel you about going back in time with my body. I just had a baby in December and just got back into working out. I'm back down to my pre-preg weight, but the tone just isn't the same. My little guy is totally worth whatever damage it has done to my body, but it would be so nice to look like me a few years ago. I don't need to be ripped or model skinny!


    1. I suffered from an eating disorder and exercise bulimia. Before that, I lost tons of weight and was great. I'm just hoping to be normal again, for my body to function properly.

  2. That pic of the dog is so cute and I'm envious of your flexibility! I really need to get back into yoga :)

  4. yoga is amazing----- I do it at least a few times a week mixed with weight training and running! good for you for setting goals and working towards them, that is awesome! thanks for linking up with me!


  5. I'm appreciate your letters to your body. It's hard for me to reconcile wanting to altar my body and loving it as it is. :)
