This books encompasses the author’s issues with life events, mental heath and a disbelief in herself.
I wonder how many people are glued to their sofas watching dreadful TV and thinking “there is no way I can get up and do anything, let alone exercise”? This author got off her sofa and, with baby steps, started to go running. Sometimes this is all we need to get on with life and focus on exercise and fresh air rather than sitting around. For some people they cannot see the wood for the trees.
This book and the author are an inspiration to me and brought humour into this as well – I found myself chuckling along and then feeling quite emotional at the same time. The author was hugely honest, so respect for this lady.
The author writes well, and she has enclosed a good reference guide and the key to all of this is that nobody is looking at you, so find something and do it.
I am off to swim in a moment, that is my outlet. I am not good, but I keep going.
