Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death.Buddha
My journey. My life. My choices. My body. My injuries. My confidence. My smile.
It’s been a journey, and definitely not an easy one, but oh my goodness has it been worthwhile. A couple of years ago I found myself trapped in a vicious cycle. One that was exhausting and counter productive. I remember clearly seeing a photo of myself and wondering what the deuce I was doing to myself.
I was overweight, under active and miserable with myself. I desperately was hiding my true feelings about ME from everyone including myself. I frequently reassured myself that at my age, with all my health concerns, I was doing the best I could. Then I made a decision to stop listening to the reasons I couldn’t, and to try and get healthier.
I kept going. Walking as much as 45 km some weeks! I stretched, I watched what I ate. I stumbled a few times and reverted back to my old couch potato ways. But I kept trying and even quit smoking along the way!
