I do.

Melissa got me a ring in Disney, the last time she went. It has my name stamped into it.  I think its adorable. But, I've since adopted it as a sort of promise ring. A promise to myself. 

I've been wearing it everyday, in the shower, at the gym, and to bed. Like a wedding ring, it represents a unity. A unity of my mind with my body.  I see it, and I think of who I am doing all this hard work for.


So now I am taking a moment to write my vows to myself.

Dear body,
I vow to never abandon you.
I vow to treat you as the invaluable possession that you are.
To feed you good, healthful food, and allow you to grow through exercise, and play.
To become more in-tune with you, so that you and I feel the world as one.
I vow to be good to you, through sickness, and in health.
Until death do us part.
