Angry at myself
Sunday, July 10, 2016
On vacation hubby & I decided to go for a bike ride. Little did I know it was going to be 5 miles over moderately tough terrain in 88 degree heat, under a blazing sun. Now hubby is in much better shape than I am, being about 35 lbs overweight, but he's very muscular. Me, about 100 lbs overweight with about 2% muscle. I did the best I could to keep up with him and I did succeed but am very angry at myself for letting myself get this out of shape. All I could think about was we should be enjoying this time together and here I am gasping for breath, sweating like a pig and ready to cry. I want to be able to enjoy outings like this without worrying if I will be able to do it.
This was the wake up call I needed to get myself back on track. I vow to do some physical activity 4-5 days a week, starting at a little slower pace than I did today. Exercising so hard that I'm Gasping for breath is not recommended as a starting point. I can do this... I will do this ... I am worth it!
