I felt out of shape just yesterday when I tried to go on a short run. I used to run a lot, but I haven’t been as consistent with my workouts lately, and it really showed when I struggled to run for more than a few minutes.
I can relate to that. I felt out of shape during a dance class I took a few weeks ago. I used to be a lot more flexible and coordinated, but I struggled to keep up with some of the moves and felt like I was tripping over my own feet.
For me, it was just this morning when I tried on a pair of jeans that used to fit me perfectly, but now they’re tight around my waist and hips. It’s a reminder that I need to get back into a regular exercise routine.
People may feel out of shape after a period of inactivity or after indulging in unhealthy habits such as overeating or drinking alcohol. This feeling can be accompanied by physical symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, and difficulty performing physical activities.
