On my last post I commented I started exercising again, or at least attempted to exercise. Well since I had my pout session about how hard it was and how far I had digressed from my original goal, I decided not to give up! As heart breaking as it was to me to see how far backwards I had gone, I knew that I could only move forward and get better than where I was on my first attempt at exercising again.
I am proud to say I didn’t give up; I went back to the drawing board. I searched for YouTube videos which would work for me and start at the beginning. I found a beginner’s video and decided to give it a try. Well, I went from my first day being able to exercise for just a few minutes to completing a workout on Sunday!
To top this exercise off today Robert and I set out on something I haven’t been able to do in such a long time. We set out on a walk! We walked close to a 1/2 mile today — which we actually power walked for about 5 minutes of the walk! Can you tell how excited I am about this gigantic step?!?
It feels so good to be returning to myself again, now that my foot is healing! Stay tuned to more of our journey — I can’t wait until I am able to join my friends for Zumba and increase my walking to the 2+ miles a day.
**My Feature Image is a picture my of starting point — it is what made me realize how far I had strayed! It is my point of motivation, I look forward to retaking this picture before too long.**
