This is one of my favourite photos of the last few months. Taken whilst speeding down a leafy avenue on my bike with one of my housemates. My desire to exercise is coming back, eventually, despite my body’s resistance.
I can cope with taking it slow. Sure, it’s frustrating and it hurts but my head wants me to be zooming down this avenue at top speed, or better, running full pelt and feeling everything melt away. I know it will return but I am still stuck in the halfway point of being between somewhere between wellness and fitness. Trying to balance motivation with obsession. Health with balance.
Once I start to resist something, a food or an activity, it’s very hard to break out of the battle. It’s still hard to tell whether resisting is restricting. Still, I have hope that letting the push and pull do it’s thing will balance in the end.
