I had a chat with my doctor after a bout of malaria two weeks ago, I wanted to be sure the malaria was gone, and what was wrong with me was just work related stress and the stupid opportunistic cold and catarrh that always seem to trail me after Malaria. And guess what he told me, Stress and lack of exercise! Truth is, even before he said it, I knew.
I used to be one of those people who would say, "I work too hard jare, is that not enough exercise?" Now I know better of course.
When I first started leisurely jogging and skipping, my friends, especially the fat/chubby ones would laugh at me and say I would disappear since I am kinda on the skinny side, but I know that being slim/thin/skinny does not automatically mean being fit and healthy, so I have learnt to ignore all of them and try to stay on course. I hate feeling tired and stressed all the time and my work out has been paying off. I do a fifteen minute skip or jog each morning and it helps prepare me physically and mentally, then my devotion does another bit on spiritual and mental being. I haven’t been doing this for too long, so I really pray I continue and not dump it half way, cos it sure feels gooooooood.
I spoke to a friend of mine yesterday about my new found love for workout, and he told me he does his exercise mentally, that he runs in his mind, the lazy bum! lol
Anyhoo, I have not been blogging much lately, seems like I have no interesting story to tell, no yarn to spin, hopefully all that will change when I go on my vacation, and this temporary writers bloc I have will vamoose!
But my colleague just jogged my clogged mind a few minutes ago when she said wives are unpaid helps?
Hmmmmm, interesting lets see if this lazy writer can do something with that tomorrow, right now its fifteen minutes before I close for the day, so I gotta round up and head home...home to the songs of Helen Baylor and Trace Atkins
