Now 55 and feel I need to make the effort to keep fit and healthy lbs have just crept on over the last few years and I need to stop the rot
Reached goal weight October 2010 and have maintained for 2 years. However 8lbs have crept back on so now to call a halt and get back on track.

Aim to do 30 mins + exercise every day to run 4 miles once a week and walk at least a mile in my lunch break when I am at work. I am not tracking my food but watch what I eat and need to go for portion control and not use food as a reward . I am also aiming to drink 6+ glasses of water a day.

Wearing a jumper as I type. :- )
Yes, it is understandable if Musa closes, but I hope they can turn it around. :-)

HI ya
No gardening done here, like said in my blog Gorleston weather is predictably unpredictable right now LOL
I put my gardening gear on and it was like a sign to the Gods to start the rain- I changed back to jeans and top and the sun came out- I put on my leggings and t shirt and got as far as unlocking the gardening shed door and.......................................
. emoticon emoticon

I gave up and caught up on phone calls and emails LOL

Well done you for clearing the garage! A while ago I was to help Pete "organise" his garage (some boxes of tools still not unpacked since moving- just stored) but now he has his bikes in there, there is no chance of me "interfering"- he's welcome to the mess!!!!!! emoticon

Hope to get in the garden myself tomorrow..........where do the weeds come from? I cleared them ALL last week- went over the borders with a fine tooth comb (well what ever the gardening equivalent is) last week- perfection out there..............NOW! emoticon it never ends......fresh air and exercise any way

Have a good one tomorrow, you'll sleep well after that pamper bath and relaxing read!

Oh, of course you did. I remember you mentioning it now. :-) I think it looks really smart, but I must admit I prefer being able to see where I am without having to upload the info first. That's why I'm looking at possibly getting the Garmin version. Well, thinking about it, anyway. :-)

Oh, some less than great news about the Art Gallery cafe. It may be closing soon. It isn't getting in the customer numbers it needs, and the university runs it, so they are considering pulling out. They already moved their best chef to a different location. *sigh*

Shame, really. I find it is a lovely place to sit with a book or a notepad and pen and just let my muse run rampant. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they don't pull out, but I guess you can't blame them if they do.
