Lazy days.

Exercise is my oxygen. A dose is required daily for optimal functioning. Obviously I require oxygen a tad more frequently, but only marginally.

The next three weeks is mid year holidays from Uni classes, with semester 2 starting at the end of July. I plan to take full advantage of the next few weeks, to up my exercise intensity with the pretence of making some good fitness gains. The time I have free from Uni classes, study and assignments will now be replaced by some longer runs, increased weight sessions and of course my favourite classes. Of course, work is thrown in there too.... girls gotta eat (and pay the rent, but that's by the by). The days tend to fly by when I am exercising, hanging out with friends, working, eating and of course recovering from exercise. Recovering from exercise a.k.a curled in a blanket with hot chocolate, watching hours of tv shows and napping.

Ever since I became seriously ill last December 10' - I've slowly been working on picking up the pieces. One by one. Slow and steady. It's not easy, and there have been many days I wanted to throw in the towel. But giving up is not an option. I had strength before I was ill, & i'm damn sure that I'm going to come out the other side stronger than ever. I plan on documenting my ups, downs, lessons learned, some topics important to me and a whole lot of nonsense that goes on in the life of me, you're average Australian gal :)

  1. I admire your perseverance in getting back to exercising after being sick. Exercising isn't my favorite thing to do but I sure feel a lot better when I do it.

    You go, girl! :-)
