These last few years for me have been well… rough. Sometime in 2018, I came down with pneumonia and it brought out my long buried Asthma. Then I found out I had sleep apnea.
To say that my exercising went to crap was an understatement. I spent the next 6 months trying to gain control of just my breathing. Exercising on a daily basis was not really an option although I did try. Not always with the best results so I backed off and got lazy. Not a great idea either.
Discouragement became my best friend last year and I spent a lot of time exercising but without a lot of focus or planning and of course had almost no results and a lot of frustration.
This year I made a decision to take it step by step. I wasn’t going “full throttle” like I used to as a kid but I was going to push myself a little bit everyday just a little harder. To make my lungs work, to make myself stronger and hopefully see the results down the road.
So far it’s paying off. In 4 weeks, I’m down 6 pounds and 2 inches and my breathing during the day and night is much better. Yay!!!
So I’ll keep up what I’m doing, keep pushing and maybe by summertime have some of those results I was looking for last year.
Have a great day!!!
