Today is day 39 of my 100 days of exercise and day 37 without sugar. I have to say I feel pretty good.
This week has been a rough one emotionally for me and my family. I have a special needs son and living with him is sometimes very difficult. Yesterday was a particularly bad day when I felt like giving in to my depressive feelings and staying in bed. However, my commitment to exercise took over and I decided to go for a walk. About 15 minutes in I started to feel a little better. My body felt lighter and my mind felt clearer. I was able to face the day with a little better attitude.
Today is a new day. I have already been to the gym and look forward to a walk later this morning. It is going to be a beautiful day here today.
I now know that exercise, for me at least, is a strong tool in battling the depression that kept me down for so long and that I continue to fight daily.
I can do this!
