Some of you may know this already, recently I have been going back and forth to the hospital for a month now. I have severe muscle spasms on my lower back and my spine is apparently straighter when it should be more curved. This is very alarming to me, not to mention painfully expensive as well.
Like a lot of women I am always conscious about my body, but for the wrong reasons. I based everything on my appearance. I’m not overweight nor underweight, I am mostly in between. I don’t exercise regularly but whenever I feel like I am gaining weight I cut down on my food intake or exercise a little. My point is, exercising was never really a part of my lifestyle. I just pull it out of my sleeves whenever I feel like it.
I’ve been contented with that, until now. My body has come to a point where I need to regularly exercise to keep it at a normal state. At the moment, my muscles are stiff and in pain. My movement is limited and even walking can be a little bit painful already.
It is time for me to change my mindset and my lifestyle. And I wanted to share with you what I learned from this experience. If before I only exercised when I felt like improving my looks, now I want to exercise regularly because I want to take care of my body. I want to be responsible and live a healthier lifestyle. After all, what I sow now I will reap later. I really want to avoid going back to the hospital and end up spending lots of money for something that I could avoid by taking care of my body.
I know that this is not going to be easy. I am going to have to unlearn my old habits and learn new ones, but it is something I intend to do. Having said that, I already bought a couple of things for my quest to be more active. They are pink and very girly haha, and I am very fond of them. I got a pink yoga mat from Toby’s, they also have it in different colors in case you are interested. I also got new running shoes from Nike at The Athelete’s Foot store, really not a fan of that store’s name. They are on sale at the moment and they have quite the nice selection of sports shoes. That’s all for now, good night ladies, and have a great weekend ahead of you :)
