Despised no longer

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Today, I have had one of those moments. A moment when I realized how much my life has, and continues to change. I miss exercise! I never really considered the role it began to play as I have changed my lifestyle to fit with my priorities of health and overall well-being. As I have commented repeatedly, when I began this journey, I hated every step I took. However, literally I knew my life depended on it.

I have had some setbacks which have prevented me from my usual routine. Recently, I have been forced to abstain. It often takes losing something before I realize just how important it is.
I have taken the benefits of exercise for granted. All areas of life are being affected. Sleep,
Stress primarily, mood, and just the act of doing it.

When it hit me, I was actually missing it you could have knocked me over with that proverbial
feather! They say that old habits die hard-indeed they do. But is it possible that new ones are
even harder to break?

I will admit I am frustrated by the fact I cannot do as much, and need to regain my stamina.
However, today that is not nearly as bothersome as not being ready to resume at all.
I would have never dreamed that I would see such a change in my lifetime.
