I started exercising this month. Of course, I have been here before, but there was a couple of key differences this time. I am seeing a counsellor and an MD for both ADD and depression. I am getting both medical help and mental tools to help me do better, which is starting to have benefits. I started very simple, exercising just 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I did have problems with my depression for part of the time and stopped exercising, but I did not let that stop me from trying again. Iím now up to 10 minutes of exercise a day and I came very close to my goal of exercising 20 times (18) in 4 weeks so I am pleased with that. Even exercising this little bit has had a noticeable impact on my mood and my diabetes.
Here's the point. Start small and simple. Remember, failure is NOT final unless you stop trying, so keep trying. Get whatever help you need and don't settle for anything less.
Good luck and God Bless!
