things to make you smile


So it’s really difficult to have a chronic condition. It makes it so tough to do normal everyday things, let alone workout. But the boyfriend and I joined a gym last week. Along with our memberships, we get free fitness assessments. We went through part one together last night, and it kicked both of our asses.

The thing was, I did everything that my boyfriend had to do – with the exception of like four more steps pushing this half balance ball across the floor. I totally could not finish that. It sucked. And then the trainer made Theron finish it for me. Poor guy.

We were both sore as hell afterwards last night. Theron’s hip was killing him. But it was one of the best things I’ve ever done, and I’ll tell you why.

As I was leaving the boyfriend’s, he told me he admired me for doing everything he did despite hurting all the time. It was pretty much the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.
