Beginning…Again

Published by Lydia Richmond on

I’ve tried and tried to get myself back on the healthy wagon. But it seems like my health wanted to keep having health PROBLEMS. So, the constant circling back to not healthy continues to happen.

Most recently, I had a stent in place from kidney to bladder to battle some issues I had with kidney stones and kidney swelling. Now that it’s out, I am hoping to feel a lot better — and hopefully have more energy! In the 24 hours since it was removed, I have felt better than ever.

Thus, I bring to you a poem about starting again.

Beginning…Again

Alas, the stent is out.
I now have no reason to shout
about
the pain that has left me out
of the exercise loop.

Alas, I must now begin again
looking here and there for a win
it’s no sin
to have just one cookie out of the bin
if I give the rest to the kids.

Alas, I shall now have to be good
can’t hide under these yoga pants and hood
I’ve withstood
the temptations and knowing I could
but I didn’t. So there.

Here we go, people, we can do this.
One more item to add to our to-do list
workout not missed
a dancing or walking tryst
Math Man will reap the rewards.

Finding the energy to get moving is hard enough at the best of times. When one is constantly ill? Impossible. Well done! Here’s to a new start!

That made me smile. Sometimes silly is just what we need.
Glad the stint is out and you’re starting to feel better. Math man will be reaping the benefits of your newfound commitment to health before you know it!

I seriously would not wish kidney stones on my worst enemy! They are awful. I’ve had them three times, but thankfully been clear for the past five or so years. Also, there is nothing wrong with beginning again. It’s the quitting completely you’ve got to avoid!

    I might wish them on my worst enemy. Ha! Yes, so not fun.
