I feel like a failure – after saying for days that I was going to the gym, today I finally went thinking that I would feel better once I’d been. BIG MISTAKE – after only three minutes walking on the treadmill I realised that I was going to have to give it up. Not only is my right arm really painful today but I’m also struggling with fibromyalgia. I felt so exhausted I needed to lie on the exercise mat to recover …… how pathetic. All around me people were lifting weights and running, all I want to do is be able to hang out the washing but I can’t lift my right arm so it will be drying indoors again today. I don’t give up easily but I realised today that this time I can’t win so once I got home I made the call to cancel my membership.
