I didn't walk over last weekend. Totally lazy and unmotivated.
On Monday I felt unfit and worse still, depressed. I have realised I need to exercise to improve my mood. I am always outwardly cheerful but living with a chronic life threatening illness is stressful.
I decided to explore other ways of exercising.
So striking whilst the iron was hot I went to look around a posh spa and gym.
I felt as if I left a whole lot of stress at the door and could feel my mood lifting. Instead of being home alone I was in a vibrant community of people ~ most probably a bit older than me, all fitter than me ~ all chatty and welcoming.
I signed up on the spot.
I then went to the supermarket and bought cheapie exercise top, trousers and swimsuit.
Later that day I returned to the gym and had my induction session on the equipment.
I have done 3 sessions this week ~ Mon, Wed and today. They are aware of my health issues and have helped me to make a gentle start. It is hard going but I am loving it.
It feels like I have re-entered the big wide world ~ much better to be out amongst people again.
I said I would never join a gym again ~ never say never.
