Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

This week's prompt is...Backwards.
University deja vu. So much stress, so little control and 20 pounds of unwanted weight. At least now I have a baby to show for it. But still - no excuses. Back to the headaches. Dizziness. Constant running tally until I wish I had a little calculator implanted in my arm. The aching shins and blisters. Feeling every day like an old woman whose body is steadily giving out. Muscles shaking in exhaustion and sitting down because I'm too tired to put one foot in front of the other. Most of all the twisting, growling hunger.
Flip side. The endorphins so high I feel like I could jump over the world. Pants sliding easily over hips and underwire lying flat against my side. No more breast bruises from a bra that doesn't quite fit anymore. Chafing sore spots disappear. If I keep going, maybe I'll get all the way back. To taking full deep breaths because there will be nothing to hold in anymore.
