In my last post, I mentioned how unfit I feel. If I’m being honest, unfit doesn’t even begin to cover it. I have never felt so many aches and pains, been so bloated, carried so much extra weight (not even after my pregnancies) and felt generally unhealthy.
I don’t know how I got to this point but I suspect that having three children who still need me all the time and being 40 have something to do with it. Then again, I know that coming up with reasons for feeling like a train wreck is just coming up with excuses. The real reason my body feels years older than it is is that I have been eating foods I know I shouldn’t (refined carbohydrates are my nemesis) and I haven’t done any form of exercise in over a year now (unless you consider vacuuming and hanging laundry as exercise).
I know that it’s time for an intervention, but I just don’t know where to start. I am partly terrified of the pain in my hip but I am also so stiff and unfit that I cannot seem to find baby steps that are small enough to get started again.
Tell me, how do you keep fit? Do you attend classes of some sort? Do you walk or run or are you following a programme on your own at home?
