Hi all - hope we're all doing well and are keeping strong in our quit.
Well its been a while coming but in an attempt to tackly my lardy arse I returned to the gym and went every day last week - and yesterday and today.
What a revelation! While my legs and muscles were, of course, aching the breathing was so different to when I went to the gym as a smoker (bit of an oxymoron there). As a smoker it felt like I was trying to get oxygen through cotton wool - now my lungs feel open and I feel like I'm getting all the air I need while exercising. It was a great feeling. Also my shoulder stood up to the exercise which is great.
Am feeling very up today and just wanted to share.
