Where did I leave my saddle?

So it has been a few months since I did any official exercise ie set out to work out or power walk. There are many reasons for this, the main one being I have had absolutely no confidence in my ability to achieve anything out with my comfort zone. Having to deal with getting back to work, coping with counselling and accepting that I needed to stay on medication for my anxiety all builds up and I needed to concentrate on certain things and move away from others. 

  

So we are thinking that the head is sort of in a better place therefore it is time to get back in the exercise saddle and start looking after the body.  Easing myself in gently, I decided to take up the 5×50 Challenge.

I chose the Braveheart option to do 30 minutes of exercise everyday and I have to admit, so far, it is going well. I have been power walking every day and although it had only been a few days, the biggest benefit is that I am sleeping better.

  

It doesn’t sound much but it took a lot of courage to start all this again and I am really hoping that these 30 minutes every day will build up the motive to get back in the gym saddle again. So look out GymGuyMark, I will be back!!!!

  1. I understand completely. Having a hard time of things for various reasons myself of late… and having just done the C9 cleanse and (thanks to you) doing my best to complete 3k every other day (building up to daily once the mornings are lighter) I feel great.
    But the BIGGEST change and promoter of the feel good factor is because I have taken control of something for [i]myself[/i] – it is an AMAZING feeling.
    Be brave, be strong (you already are) and that saddle will be a cinch! xx
