I’m visiting my parents for the holidays this week. It’s nice to see them. :) Since I’ve been running three times a week for a couple months now, I was a little sad to have to break that routine– but it turns out my folks have a treadmill in there basement gathering dust! So I got my run in this morning, and I’ll be able to keep going while I’m here.
While I’m here, though, I get to deal with family members pestering me about my weight. Every year my relatives say “oh you look great, have you lost weight?” They even say this on years I’ve gained weight, it’s amazing. Regardless, my body is always out there to be commented on, as soon as I walk in the door. It gets old. And I get to decide now if I want to shrug it off or make a big deal.
