When I openly admitted that I had miserably failed at exercising since becoming a mother you all were much too kind in encouraging me to start again. I seriously expected (and deserved) someone to tell me that I needed to suck it up, grow up, get off my lazy derriere and do SOMETHING, ANYTHING!! Well, your gentle push actually had a great effect. I actually thought a lot about you wonderful readers who told me I needed to exercise for myself and for my daughter. To you wonderful cysters and fibros who commented in encouragement, THANK YOU!
I started swimming again on Thursday. I was nervous about getting in the pool again, I was nervous I wouldn't be able to even finish a lap, I was nervous I would cough up a lung right into the pool water, I was nervous to leave my baby. Well, I did finish a lap, several actually, I did not hack out a lung, and I even enjoyed a little me time to think while doing laps.
Every time I try to make an excuse not to go I tell myself that I am doing it because I want to see my little Kay bug graduate from college!
