Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker SisterShimmy: "What thing have you done lately that made you feel really proud of yourself?"

Well, yesterday, I finally got back in the pool after being sidelined for over two months. I'm still feeling quite poorly, but finally well enough that I could manage a swim.

I was just hoping to be able to do 40 lengths, and I ended up doing 70 (and a bit) for a full mile. I was exhausted, but in a good way, and I feel very proud of what this fat, disabled, stigmatized, underestimated, and mighty body can do!
