Wow, can you believe we're halfway through The New Year Project already? I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's participated so far. It's been such a privilege to read your goals/dreams/thoughts, and being inspired by your words.
Just a quick one today from me ladies, as I'm not feeling very well. I think I may have spent far too much time out in the sun today while looking after kiddies at work. Since I'm not 100% at the moment, I've decided to pass on exercise for the day. How odd though, I'm quite surprised that I'm missing it!
I only started exercising regularly towards the end of last year. Nothing too hard, just brisk half hour walks, 3 times a week at the most. When I had time off from work in December, I decided to increase it to 5 times a week, with a little more intensity, and I've already started to see the difference.
At first I did it solely to lose weight, but now I find that I'm doing it more for emotional reasons. A few days ago, I was feeling a little glum, and the only thing that I felt like doing was going for a walk. It seemed odd to me at the time, since A.) I'm the laziest person that I know, and B.) since I get recurrent depression, I tend to find solace in sleep. It's one thing knowing the science behind it, but to actually feel it working is awesome. I never really understood why some people are so enthusiastic about exercise until now.
What do you do to take care of yourself?
