I went to the gym and worked out EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!
Now before you think that I'm pathetic (ok I probably am pathetic, but hear me out), I have to tell you this. I know exercising is good, especially for mental health, but it has been one of the very hardest things to do in the last year. I mean, some days getting out of bed and eating is hard, so working out seems completely impossible.
After last week kicking me down, I decided that I needed to do something. I couldn't let myself stay as far down as I had fallen. So... I got a membership to the YMCA. Several people at my church have one and go regularly, so I figured they could help push me and encourage me to follow through with my goal to exercise.
This week has been a good week. For the first few days, I didn't have the weight of darkness making everything difficult. Later in the week, I had some very thick darkness again, but I still managed to exercise (even when Kyle was traveling for work!) Now I have officially worked out more in this last week than I have in the whole last year... I know it's terrible! But I'm not going to focus on how long it has been that I have been trying and failing. I'm going to focus on my miracle for this week. I did something that would have seemed impossible even a month ago. I finally did it, and now next week I can do it again!
