Yes I know, I haven’t been here in a long time, but I am going to try to post a bit more if I can. My family and work circumstances have changed a fair bit since I was last blogging seriously two years ago and that’s really the only excuse I have that and laziness I suppose. I can’t promise anything but I will try to blog. Anyway….
I have not run or taken part in any form of exercise in a long time. All the good work I did while training for Billie’s 5K has been undone and I have gained probably 2 stones in weight. I look awful and I don’t feel much better either. Something needs to give.
Two months ago I bought a cross trainer from a friend. When we bought it home we put it down in the kitchen folded up and that’s where it has stayed…gathering dust and getting in the way. Well yesterday I actually dragged it out into the middle of the kitchen, unfolded it and used it…and guess what? I didn’t die! It was a small victory as I only managed 10 minutes but I hadn’t planned to get on it and when I did I thought ‘well five minutes should be OK’ but when I looked down at the screen and saw that the five minutes was done I realised I actually felt Okay. So I stayed on for another five. When I got off after 10 minutes my legs were still attached 🙂
I have some stuff to do today but after that is done I am going to dig out my old running clothes (and pray they will fit on my big ass) and then see if that 10 minutes on the cross trainer was a fluke. I’ll let you know if it was 🙂
So, I am going to try. It’s all I can do. It will be one baby step at a time but I am going to try. I will also try to blog about it and while I am there I will touch a little on what’s been going on around here too.
Before I go though, here is a little update…April just gone was the third anniversary of me quitting smoking…yes three years! How fast was that?!
