The Gift of Time

In this life we are given 2 gifts the gift of choice and the gift of time. What do we do with our gifts? Well for me I was gifted some of Dave's time. He has given me an extra 1/2 an hour early in the morning so I can exercise, run. Now I could use that time and sleep and do nothing, but that would be a bad use of the gift. I am so thankful for my honey. It has been one of the most rewarding gifts he has given me, his precious time. I have been building up my endurance the last 2-3 weeks. I am still up one pound from my original start weight but I can run/jog for up to 7 minutes straight or run up a very steep hill. While it may be easy for some to do this, I see them every morning, for me it is a great accomplishment when it had become increasingly difficult to run up the stairs in my house without being short of breath. I still have a long way to go, like dropping 50 pounds so it I can run farther without killing my knees and calf muscles. I just hope my body can get there. I hope my hormones will get back in whack, so that I can lose weight. Who knew it was such a vicious cycle. I also like to use my time hanging out with my two little monkeys and their gorilla father. They are my favorite people on the planet. Anyway, what to you do with your time?
