Well, yeah, i'm depressed. No specific reason for that, it's a self-produced depression, not dependent on external events.
Anyway, I decided to rededicate myself to my path towards a healthy lifestyle.
Since i'm very depressed, i decided to start really small and do only 5 minutes of exercise today. It was incredibly hard to get myself out of bed and start doing it, but i'm so proud now that I did. I listened to SP's "inspirational music mix", it always works for me. First I cried, but then i did it!
The idea is to add 5 minutes everyday and to reach my initial goal of 30 minutes of "hip flexor" (strength exercise) everyday. I've done it in the past so i know i can do it again. It is really great for flattening one's tummy... fast, so it's a very rewarding exercise. it IS WORTH the sweat... lol
Today's 5 minutes hurt me a little in the left knee since i hurt myself after swimming while falling from my own height and weight (which are big) on a slippy rock full of sea weeds.
So my knee that has osteoarthritis has now a big blue bruise. But it all be back in order soon, i count on my body to heal soon! I know it will.
OK, enough venting, tomorrow i'll do my 10 minutes and feel even better about myself!
