I started Work Out Wednesdays because I wanted to write a blog on exercising. I found I had so much to say on the subject, that I needed to write several blogs, not just one or two. I realized this morning, I have said most of the things I wanted to say about exercising. So far now, I am retiring Work Out Wednesdays.
But I wanted to conclude this blog series with a few thoughts to wrap up my lessons learned. Here they are:
- I have CF. I do not use the illness as an excuse, I use it as motivation. One of the first things I learned about this illness is how important it is to exercise. It reminds me to do my best.
- When I am sick, or tired, or just not feeling "it", I give myself a break. It is ok to give myself a day off. Pushing myself beyond my limits will only make things worse.
- Staying active is key. I try to find things I like to do to stay active. I like to switch it up every now and then to keep things interesting and prevent my routine from getting boring.
I am sure there will be other exercises posts from time to time. But for now, be active, stay positive, and take the best care of yourself that you can achieve.
