Not so long ago, I was quite fit...not that I've gotten out of shape, I find I'm almost more depressed when I exercise! I know I will get back in shape eventually and exercise will make my happy again like it used to...
I go to the gym in patterns and get very fustrated when I break the cycle because then I find it very hard to get back there and alot of it is the overwelming confuusing information that I get about what to do at the gym. I wish I could get some feed back on introductory excercise plans that actual people have had results with
It is very difficult to get into the swing of things when you have left yourself go. I do find that if I make the time to exercise even for a few brief periods during the day I start to feel better about life.
Try just walking around the block. The important thing us to start moving. Once you do this, your mind and body will start to adapt. Try walking a little more each time so that your body keeps being pushes out of its comfort zone. Eventually, you will find more fun activities to lose weight. Good luck!
Hello everyone. It has been awhile since I have been on this site. I have been going through some family problems and with that my depression kicked back in. It is funny how quickly I can stop exercising when I become emotional. All I want to do is sit and cry. Hopefully I can soon put all this behind me.
It's not easy to make yourself get up and take a shower in the throws of a deep depression...exercise? really? I am barely able to stay working much less exercise. I am serious, how do make yourself get up and exercise if you cant even force yourself to get up and take a shower? I am talking about full out bed bound depression with exhaustion, its only a matter of time before I have to quit my job.
