In 2011 I did very little exercise, a few walks here & there and the race for life but nothing regular. On the 1st January 2012 I decided to change this and do something daily unless something got in the way (illness etc) and today is 8th January and I have managed something everyday, nothing major but at least something that I can count as exercise.
My daily exercise ranges from a wii game to a 2 mile walk. I am feeling massive benefits physically, emotionally and mentally.
Physically I lost 3lb in my first weigh in since starting the regular exercise, my calves and thighs are becoming more toned and I have more stamina and I am less out of breath.
Emotionally I am happier in general,I have a lot of personal upset with my grandmas terminal illness and my parents divorce and stress from university but this is affecting me less, I am learning to try and see the positives in every situation and try not to let things get to me. I can honestly say I have only noticed these changes since starting the exercise.
My relationship has also improved, we laugh more, we are happier and I am
Over the moon!
Finally, mentally, I am in a much better place. I have much more motivation with Slimming World, I am more motivated to succeed and reach my goal and to resist temptations as I do not want to undo the hard work I have done with the exercise. My motivation in everyday life has also increased, , my house is the tidiest it's been since I moved in six months ago!
I cannot recommend exercise enough, you do not need to do much, I am for at least 30 minutes a day but something is better than nothing! I feel a different person since starting regular exercise.
The benefits are endless!
