Trying to come out of the cocoon I built...
Monday, July 08, 2013
I have been in hiding since I lost my house to Sandy. I haven't been able to deal with my issues of my loss and it has been much easier to hide in my house only going out when I have to. I don't have to answer any questions from anyone and I could wallow in my pity party.
The condo where I am renting till I can rebuild has a great gym and outdoor pool. I have been here since the end of April and have not taken advantage of it and it is free. Well this past Friday I came out of hiding and went to the pool. Aqua Aerobics is every morning till they close the pool after Labor Day.
I was quite sore because I had not exercised since Sandy except for a couple of times when I used Coach Nicole's exercise videos. It has been almost 9 months since I have been following an exercise routine. SHAME ON ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still haven't exercised with weights and machines in the gym but I will. I also just bought a 5 pound weight to use at home since my free weight set was under water at my old home. We were not allowed to take anything that had been under water so I had to leave that set there due to the high contamination level.
still haven't used that yet, but I will. It is all a matter of baby steps!
