Fashion and Fitness go hand in hand. No, I am not referring to fitness clothing as fashion – I am referring to the need to be fit – to exercise, in order to maintain one’s personal appearance and in turn, style. I have really been struggling with this over the past few years.
Married life is wonderful – but not without its stresses. And my wife is an incredible cook – so that can certainly bring about a change in wardrobe. And I am also a parent. I love being a father but it takes a great deal of time and is also not without its stresses.
I have really struggled with exercising and in most cases have made excuses as to why I could not or would not get out and run or cycle. Today I put aside the excuses and went for a run. It wasn’t a great distance and it was awkward. I felt very clumsy on my feet and my legs wanted to give out within the first few laps. But I did it. And tomorrow I’ll be out there running again.

Another day on the track. I was able to run twice the distance I did yesterday – which is great – but my legs are burning. It is a good burn, I know. I added music to today’s workout. Amazing what music will do for one’s motivation.
Another good run this morning. Not as far or long, but still positive progress. Legs are not as sore – still fighting to get up the steps each day though – looking forward to that post-workout burn no longer being an issue.
Starting to find my rhythm. Feeling like I am building some positive momentum as well. Still feel as though I am carrying around a ten-pound bag of potatoes on my shoulders though.
