As promised, I'm back again!
To be honest I've been a little overwhelmed by the response to yesterdays ramblings, in a smiley, happy sort of way. Who'd have thought that ANYONE would notice it, give it a glance, let alone bother to add words of encouragement? The best bit is I've gained several new spark buddies! :) Thank you all.
Today is a beautiful autumn day here in northern Belgium. I woke to dew on the grass, mists over the fields and the most wonderful array of colours displayed on the trees, standing majestically in shafts of sunlight. Makes you want to get out there. Until last October, we were living in the sandpit that is the Middle East. My 3 years out there have done nothing if not made me so grateful for the seasons and beauty of a more temporal climate.
(Wish I knew how to post photos!)
Anyhow, inspired by my newly found SP friends, I'm feeling very motivated in my search for a more healthful lifestyle. So far today I have Zumba-ed and eaten well. There is "horrid stuff" going on at school with my 13 year old daughter at the moment, stuff that would normally see me reaching for the chocolate. Your messages of support and encouragement are really helping me to stay strong and away from the biscuit tin. Sincere thanks.
I'm starting to think I might actually be able to do this....
