It is hard to say goodbye to something which is a powerful symbol. To something which used to make me feel so good but now only stirs up feelings of guilt. But I did give it all away to a comlete stranger. I am of course talking about my treadmill, dumbells, bench and all that other stuff collecting dust in my basement.
Tom and I have hauled that stuff around through college and new jobs and young children and boy we used to be in great shape. No longer though. I kept beating myself up mentally-'shoulding' all over myself. We are getting the house ready to put on the market and it had to go. I was not going to move it again!
I also truly believe that you need to make room in your life to let something else in. So goodbye weights, hello farm (I hope). I am making room for a different kind of fitness.
