sadly the second part of that phrase is - should we be doing a reality check - I am also a mass of flesh composed of undeveloped muscle and fat!
Even my toe muscles are atrophied which is why I have bad balance!
(Who knew toes even HAD muscles?)
As part of my journey toward wellness, retirement, and the Camino, I've begun working with a personal trainer and a physical therapist - a team that apparently really appreciates a challenge!
We have 10 months to get my body ready to walk 500 miles - and to establish a baseline - I've been subjected to a number of instruments for measuring muscle mass, BMI, weight, pressure, tensile strength etc - - all of which have only reinforced how much I HATE numbers.
Suffice it say, I'm not where I should be... but 'the team' is in place to get me going in the right direction.
I'm on my way back - to both myself and the Camino!
This is NOT where I'll be by the time April rolls around...
I really AM more than a set of numbers.
From my lips to Gods ear!
