I went to the park today to exercise. I walked around the park once and I was done for. My back was killing me, knees hurting and I was sweating like crazy. I was going to go around one more time but I didn’t/couldn’t push myself. I guess I just gave up. I wasn’t able to push myself forward.
I was so damn frustrated. I remember when I used to jog in that park with ease & now I can only WALK around it once. I was just at a point of why bother? Fuck coming back tomorrow.
Then I started to vent to Robyn awakemysoul69 and my sorta exercise coach Lisa, themisscook. They both in their own way explained that this is my first time walking in awhile. Lisa gave me tips on how to exercise. Like wearing the proper shoes, listening to music and what to wear. Robyn encouraged me to take baby steps. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Hopefully tomorrow I will push myself and take that second lap. I just need to keep going.
Sometimes you just need people as a sounding board and today was one of them. Not to be all sentimental but thanks Lisa and Robyn for making me feel less defeated and more encouraged to take that second, third and fourth lap. You sluts rock.
