Yes! After 8 months I have finally started on getting fit.
I decided that I had to do something about my fitness after noticing that even the hairdresser goes to the gym regularly, and her partner, cycles and exercises every week!! That was to me my wake-up call. I had to do something about my own fitness, or rather the lack of it.
I know I have been wanting to start this exercise regime for awhile. But there were always excuses. Marketing, dont like jogging, no time, etc. No more excuses for me.
I started last week with a 1.2km brisk walk. It took me 12 minutes to complete it. My kids "pooh-poohed" my effort when I told them, saying that the distance was too short and that I should jog.
The very next day, I tried jogging. But jogging is really not for me. After 500m I was panting!! So I went back to my brisk walk and covered a distance of 2km. I did break out in a sweat, and I think that was a good start. Now, 2 to 3 days a week, I go for my walk, walking a longer distance with each passing day. And it only takes up no more than half an hour of my time.
Hopefully this road will bring me from unfit to fit, and finally looking Fab!! Like they say: The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, and I have taken my first step. Have you?
