Use it or lose it
Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Today, as I was attempting to follow the instructions on a workout video I realized that what I once was able to complete was now way beyond my current capabilities. Has it really been that long? To be honest yes it has. Injury and health issues provided the perfect excuse to take a break from a regular exercise routine. What was intended to be a short break, however, turned in to an extended period of time. It wasn't long before what I once enjoyed became something to be avoided/
Were there activities I could do, yes. Was I motivated to do them, obviously not. The result-I have definitely regressed. Even a short DVD has become too challenging. However, as I regain some motivation, I realize that all is not lost. By starting with the basics I can regain what has been lost. The process will be beneficial, but it is up to me to stick with the program.
Today, I have taken the first step. I know that it will be necessary to continue to take it one step at a time. If I fail to do this I will become overwhelmed and unwilling to stay the course.
For now, I know that for me it is definitely true that if you "don't use it you lose it".
