Protect Yourself

Get your mind out of the gutter!!!  Now, I'm a true believer that everything happens for a reason.  Just weeks ago I was ragging about the lack of support when transferring to a healthier lifestyle.  Then I ran into a homegirl from high school who's like the workout queen.  Not only will she come to me for a good workout but she's like Richard Simmons times two in the motivation department.  Now all my superwoman exercise was supposed to help not hurt me.  Well no such luck!!! Just yesterday, I found myself seeing a chiropractor.  Ok, so I could say I'm never working out again, or I could complain for ever and blame the world for my pain.  But the fact of the matter is, I didn't protect myself.  I over did-it...trying to go 100 miles per hour when I'm in a car that only goes up to 50 (at the present).  But more importantly, I didn't protect my feet.  Whether you're walking, jogging, swimming or whatever, you need the right gear.  My walking shoes were worn out like an 8track.  All-in-all, it could have been worse...just a little case of tendinitis. I'm already back walking, but this time I bought my protection.
