Starting over is so hard
Sunday, October 07, 2012
Yesterday was my first mini workout and it is a start, in a sense embarrassingly small but it is a start. I need to buy some running shoes and go for a very small run. This is the hard part for me, the starting over.
There was a time when 3 miles and sometimes 4 was a good run, that was too long ago and now I must start over. I did it to myself. I know this and that makes me want to waste my energy whining and blaming myself rather than getting up and doing something about it. The only saving grace is that my job has helped me retain a lot of my upper body strength but the stamina has suffered a lot. I am getting winded in ridiculous amounts of time. I have however quit using tobacco, the 4th of August of this yr was my last usage save for a 1 day slip so that is on my side. The bad news is that I am using candy to counteract the nicotine cravings. Any suggestions to an alternative would be most welcome. Well it is time to do a quick workout I have got to keep moving forward. Let's do this...
