So to the gym I go!!

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.        -Joshua J. Marine 

Well it's with apprehension and lack of enthusiasm I'm beginning a fitness program at the gym. Docs.' recommendation, due to my thinning bone density. 

Never having really been an exercise person, always enjoyed sitting with my painting or creative projects, I'm finding it all a bit overwhelming, and hard to picture myself "working out" at the gym. But underneath all this I really feel I must give it my best shot and try to build up my strength, so as hopefully to preserve myself for a better quality of life as I get older. 
So I'll just have to fit in my crafting around all this. Have half finished projects all over the house at present, so hoping to get to them soon when I get some sort of routine established.
The joys of getting older!!! Am sooo happy though, have just sold all items in my Etsy store!!! That made my week!! So looking forward to adding more items soon!!
Wishing you all a good week, filled with health, vitality and happiness!!! Hugs Robyn.


  1. Congrats on selling all you stuff! Lots of happy customers :)
    Good luck at the gym :) I'm trying to exercise more too but I wont go to the gym....just using my step at home.... I'd rather be creating too :D
    I have joined weight watchers though and go there and am losing weight so need to get the motivation happening for the exercise too

  2. Good for you for selling out your Etsy shop Robyn!

    Getting older.... sigh... it happens to all of us huh? I hope the exercising helps with your bone density. We don't appreciate our health until we start to lose it do we.

    Wishing you well friend!

  3. Hi Robyn,

    It comes to us all, whether we like it or not.
    I used to always go to the gym but find doing my aerobics, have an Elle MacPherson and Claudia video, at home, I enjoy better.
    Good luck with your exercising and well done for selling all in your Etsy shop.

    Happy week

  4. Hi Mummy, I'm so proud of you! I don't even go to the gym! And I think it is amazing you sold everything in your Etsy shop. AND you're on facebook! Such a clever woman. Lots of love xx
