A Supportive Team Can Make All The Difference

I have always been an active person; however, there have been several things this year that have gotten in the way of my cardio workouts. I won't go into detail, let's just say I've gotten the ok to begin cardio again.

I quickly found out that is MUCH easier said than done. I feel like a lifetime of staying fit has gone down the drain! I am getting winded in no time. I was so frustrated, I felt like giving up. It was that bad. Then #temt came along. Seeing how supportive and encouraging everyone is of each other is helping me stick to it.

I felt bad for not being more involved, so I told Joan what was going on with me. She encouraged me and told me I should blog about my story. I've never blogged before, but I decided to give it a shot.

I'm going to keep at it, building up a little at a time until I'm in the best shape ever. Thank you #temt for all of the support and friendship!!


  1. Kathryn,
    Thank you so much for venturing out there and telling your story! I know it's hard to restart after once being fitter and stronger. I have had to start over and the main thing is to begin slowly and listen to your body. I am thrilled that you are sharing your story with us. I am loving our #temt.

  2. Hi Katryn,

    Our bodies definitely can drag us down in the beginning but like my dad used to say, (I know, I know, I shouldn't but I'm going there)"Even if it takes you 5 or 10 years at least you'll be there but if you do nothing then you'll be the same place in 5 or 10 years!" Of course this is what he would say about studying to be a lawyer. I think it applies to exercise, too, though.
