Day 12 – Itching to Exercise Again


So another day of rest to be on the safe side with my tooth. I’m going to hit the gym and have a leg session tomorrow afternoon, that will be 72 hours after my tooth extraction.

It’s amazing the difference I feel when I have exercised and I now want to take that to a new level. I think I’m going to make it my main focus. To really get fit. Run further, run faster, lift heavier, climb more steps on the stepmaster.

I think it will be a good distraction from my skin. In fact I cannot let my skin impact my fitness progress. I need to be in the right frame of mind when doing my runs and workouts to get the very best out of them and worrying about my skin will prevent that.

So there’s a new challenge. It will take time. Step by step, but I want to inspire others, especially at the running club and show just how much improvement can be made through hard work and determination.

In the past I’ve put most of that effort into my work but I’m just not feeling it right now. The gambling industry is one big scam at the moment and it’s getting me down. All the time I can make money from it great but the passion is dwindling so I’m going to try and cut down my hours and spend more time on my fitness.

I’m even considering getting the golf clubs out again as well but that would be a few months down the line.

Today’s feel good post was this video from the BBC One show The Greatest Dancer. If this doesn’t make you emotional I don’t know what will.

As for today it was a decent enough day. Skin is behaving itself as I’ve been eating well. Left my face well alone although did pick 1 or 2 on my back. I had my latest counselling session which again was a great help. Discussing ways to try and improve my sleep.

I’ll post an article about that in a few days about the changes I’ve made to help improve my sleep. It will be interesting to see if it has an effect. I hope so.

Looking forward to what’s to come. Back on the fitness trail from tomorrow with my date in the evening. Should be interesting.
