I won’t lie to you and say I was too busy for blogging. The truth is, I was too tired. 😦 By the time I reach home from work I will be running around making sure dinner is in order, lil’ Aisyah is engaged in meaningful activities, that I have completed my chores then fetch my daughter from college at 9pm. By bedtime I could hardly wash my face. Next thing in my conscious mind is the sound of the alarm ringing to mark the beginning of the next day. Time felt too short and my energy being sapped left and right. I took multivitamins religiously but even that don’t help. The only thing missing is exercise. I realised my fitness level has gone down the drain leaving me with no coping mechanism to last a full day. Hence I pick up running again. I started with 15 mins a day, and increase it to half an hour. Yesterday was a full 45 mins. Well, can’t say I ran the full stretch of 45 mins because 40 mins was made up of slow walking! But hey, 5 mins of running on Speed 8 and Inclination 3 is quite an accomplishment hhokay! LOL (please don’t gag…)
It’s been working so far. I do feel lighter and brighter after my run. The best part of this regime is that I felt guilty if I don’t work out so having the drive and realisation is quite a leap of faith, probably marking a new era of a fitter me. I hope!
Alright, I’m not going to tune out by saying let’s see how long this lasts. I’m going to say; let this be me. 🙂
p/s: I went through this quiz the other day about your fitness style and thought of sharing it here. Try it, maybe you’ll find out why gym is not for you! he he (Click here)
