As part of my journey back to better health, I need to start working out again. The only exercise I have been able to tolerate over the years is light walking but, even that is difficult in the summer because I don’t tolerate the heat very well. So, I have decided to join the gym but, have been procrastinating with taking the big step. I picked out the gym and really like it, they have a karate program that I would love to take someday if I am able. When I first became sick 13 years ago, I was weeks away from taking my black belt test and had to stop going. It has always been a dream of mine to continue on. So, here’s my fear. I have exercise induced asthma and it makes me scared to work out. I have an inhaler, but get scared to use it because I am so sensitive to medications. UGH! I need to get past these fears if I ever want to reclaim my health. Why do we let fear keep us from reaching our dreams? This may sound silly to some people, but it’s real to me. I know this will be challenging and I’m not sure how my body will react to becoming active. In the past, it wiped me out. I owe it to myself to try, hopefully I will take that next step soon.
