The other day I ran on the treadmill after nearly a month and to my horror I was tired within 15 minutes. The reason why it was such a ‘horror’ was because I could run/jog on the treadmill for about 30 minutes non-stop.
That just shows how un-fit I’ve actually become. Sigh. It’s not just about loosing weight, what concerns me more is about fitness. You could be thin but not fit, if that makes sense.
I feel bad, I used to be involved in basketball, inline skating, horse-back riding, swimming and gymming. And now it’s almost nothing, my body has probably gone into shock.
To make things worse, although this is a Muslim Country, there aren’t a lot of All-Womens gym around because most of the people living in this particular city are Non-Muslims. So when there is no demand, there is no supply. The one I did go to, was crap compared to the mixed one and they were charging extra. I told myself I’d be able to do the same thing at home, but the motivation isn’t exactly there
I trained for horse-back riding for nearly four years. That is something I absolutely love, but back then I was just a Hijaabi, with Niqab it isn’t exactly err possible. Well I’m sure its possibly technically, but it’s not something I would have the guts to do. There is an all-Womens riding club, but its in another city and its going to be difficult getting there, especially with the traffic.
To top it all, I love food.
