I quit! I quit exercising, watching my intake, doing much of anything. I basically became a lump on the chair, for most of the winter.
and now I am paying the price. I am just as tired, hurt just as much, if not more, am close to that big 200 on the scale, and sick of myself.
Today I walked to the grocery, less than a mile round-trip, and I was aching by the time I got home. I get short of breath and my heart pounding with a little exertion but I think I have a respiratory infection. My chest feels all clogged. Down deep, down below the throat it feels yucky.
I guess I need to see a doctor--and then start seeing exercise as a medical necessity. That's what got me out the door to the grocery; I needed to pick up a prescription and some stamps. Too bad I can't pay for a gym membership with my Health Savings Account.
When I got there, the Rx wasn't ready, so I get to go again tomorrow. Another excuse to walk. Maybe I'll go find a doctor too and see what I can do about this icky cloggy feeling.
