The work out began. It started off ok. But soon she was wheezing, and having a hard time even keeping up with Kat, the overweight team member who had to modify the work out. Half way through the work out, she was gasping for air, got dizzy, and felt like she was going to puke. She paused the Cardio Fix and shuffled into the kitchen for ice, plopped down in the chair and applied the ice to her neck and pulse points in the hopes it would help the nausea disappear and feel better.
It’s pretty sad when I can’t even keep up with Fat Kat. She thought. Then she felt guilty that she nicknamed a probably very nice lady. At least Kat was doing the work out, right?
Knowing her limitations and accepting that next week would be better she got up, found her headphones, put on some jazzy music and modified the plan. She walked for 15 minutes in the neighborhood. It’s ok to modify, she told herself. Don’t give up. You’ll get better if you keep going.
