Kick ass

“You can’t cross a sea by merely
staring into the water.”
Rabindranath Tagore

Neither can I expect to get fit by gazing at the equipment in my garage gathering dust whilst I wait expectantly for it to weave its magic and watch the pounds drop off with no effort whatsoever.

The day spent at the health spa yesterday was an inspiration. I am a lot more determined to start afresh and a lot more hopeful that I am emerging from this latest trough of low mood and depression than I was before I went. Today I meet my personal trainer to discuss just how I can get off my arse and start being active again. This will be a real boost and put me firmly back in control. Something which has been lacking due to apathy and reduced energy levels.

I am determined not to rush things. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so they say, and the changes I make must be sustainable in the long-term. So I’m not going to aim to run a marathon in 6 weeks time; Nor lose three stones in weight before my holiday in July. Small changes in diet and lifestyle and a gradual increase in activity levels should do the trick. But I need to find some patience from somewhere- Caroline’s Dictionary does not include “Patience” so I need to add it immediately along with some mantras such as “Be kind to myself”.

Spring has sprung!

  1. It;s good to know that people are wanting to get back in shape. I know that many people are having a hard time dealing with weight loss but the key things are determination and motivation. If you have those 2 then you are on the right track.
