I’m loving my return to the gym.
I’m finding that I sleep much better, and just feel better overall.
Gym keeps me sane. I forgot how well it keeps me sane, and wish I’d never stopped going. But covid happened, and everything ground to a halt, and the gym was closed.
Then when I could have gone back, I didn’t.
However, I’m back now.
I’m feeling very weak in comparison to where I was – I’m back doing baby weights again.
It’ll soon improve. I’m taking things very cautiously, as I don’t want to injure myself. It’s easy to forget I’m not young any more! (I’m in my 50s now…yikes!)
But I am loving the movement. I love feeling better about myself. I love eating better too.
I’m fully aware these days that junk food, like drugs or alcohol, is addictive. And I am an addict. So I have to keep away from junk, or it sets me off, the monster inside is released from its cage, and everything goes to hell.
I’m better off just eating well. I’ve learned from experience that I can’t control myself with certain foods, so more and more I’m just ruling them out of my life. That doesn’t mean I’m fully successful at ruling them out. But I’m doing the best I can.
Today’s food is prawns (well, shrimp really), and asparagus for lunch. Dinner will be chicken and asparagus. 1 cup of chicken, and a fair bit of asparagus (I’ve learned that I don’t have to count or limit green veggies).
So that’s where I’m at. Still doing OA, still eating well (mostly), and still doing gym every weekday.
Life is – dare I say it? – good. 😁
