A New Beginning

It has been a difficult couple of days. I injured my knee after having a really great week on the treadmill. It was hard not to go on the treadmill and hurt myself even more. I felt that I would lose all that momentum. After the break, I was back on the treadmill tonight, it was not that great. I couldn't actually run because of my knee but I did take it easy and walk for 25 minutes followed by some beautiful yoga stretches. A small step but an important one to keeping up the healthy habits. I took this picture after my workout. This is my view while I am on the treadmill. I love our tree in the backyard and I noticed that it has a lot of new growth. Being the English Teacher that I am, I started thinking about the symbolism of these new leaves. My family needs a new beginning. We have started again with our health, our eating habits and our outlook on life. It is a great new beginning.


  1. You go girl! Maybe I can gain inspiration from you. I have been trying to walk/jog for awhile now. I do good for a week or two then something happens and I fall off. Maybe if I read you blog you can keep me going. Charlene
