I spent a couple of days in hospital last year with severe dehydration, and I realised that I'm but a shadow of my old fit and healthy self. Despite suffering from asthma since young, I was a top cross-country runner throughout primary school and could run all day long.
I kept myself fit and healthy throughout my childhood and teenage years by playing football and tennis with PASSION.
The problem is that since I got married, and particularly since we bought our new car in June 2012, I have been having no exercise at all. And even though I'm lean, it doesn't mean I'm healthy.
So I've had an awakening of late, and I'm now getting healthy again. I am reigniting my former passion of running.
Nike has some really good motivational posters in addition to these famous "Keep Calm" ones. I also bought myself a new pair of Nike sports shoes (or as we say in England, trainers).
I've been running on three consecutive mornings now, after taking Lauren to school. Feels great!
How do you keep fit and healthy?
