Round is Definitely A Shape

For the last couple of weeks I have been wanting to get up and start using the gym that is available to the residents where I live.  Due to some minor depression and anxiety issues I just haven't had the motivation.  A week ago after talking to my amazing Dr. I got my meds changed and I have been able to get up before lunch the last couple of days.   

So this morning I was up and going put on my running shorts, tied on my Nikes and headed to the gym.  For a total of 30 mins...  I haven't really realized how out of shape I have gotten till now.  I used to be able to run a mile and a half and then do weight training afterwards.  I was surprised that after 20 mins on the eliptical I was ready to die.  I was heartbroken.  How could I have let myself get this bad?  I knew that I hadn't been exercising, but how bad could it be.  Well I was shown how bad it could be by how quickly it took me to wear completely out.

So after my measly 30 mins. total at the gym I hobbled home in shame up the three flights of stairs (which didn't help anything) a sweaty mess.  It wasn't till I got in and started thinking that I realized I went.  If nothing else I got off my tush and went and did something.  It may not have been much, I may not be running a marathon (or even a mile) tomorrow, but I did something.  This is so much better than I have done in at least a year and a half.

So I have vowed to not be so hard on myself.  As long as I get up and keep going I know I will get better and more fit, and that's all that matters at this very moment! 

Lovelies you are all awesome and you can do anything you put your mind to!
