This morning my internal alarm woke me up at the usual 5.30. I have had a lot of trouble getting out of bed lately. Although awake, the motivation to get up and start doing stuff is completely lacking. So this morning I talked myself out of bed by 7.3o, which took me a lot of effort. Then I talked myself into going for breakfast on … Continue reading Morning walk
This morning I walked very proudly to my third stretching class in a row. Second exercise in, my knee gave in and I fell flat on my face. And no way to get back up. I sorta crawled into a corner pretending I was ok, and finished the class seated. But even then I needed help getting up, and the pain was pretty bad. When … Continue reading Setback

Lunch at exki, and a short walk turned … Continue reading It was a good weekend!
Despite a bathing suit that didnt fit, a bathrobe 5 sizes too small, towels that could only wrap the munchkin – turns out I took the wrong ones – a common dressing room – fancy, but still … other people – I did it, at 7.15 I was in that swimming pool! Added bonus: no traffic at that time Continue reading I did it!
So yesterday I joined a gym. (again). I signed up with a personal trainer in the hope to find some exercises that will work for me, are sustainable, and not too painful. I signed up in this super fancy gym, as it is right next to the parking lot of my new project, expensive as hell – so hoping that will be an extra motivator, … Continue reading Ready? steady? go?
