I'm new to this site - really enjoying it, but still trying to find my way around. I linked on to the geographic team area today and via that found 'Hampshire'. I wonder if there's ever a meet up event? I've noticed other groups seem to be getting that together - or are we all too busy to commit?
I know I'm waiting for the sunshine to also bring some warmth with it, so I can do some 'shingle walking' down at the beach - it kills your calf muscles, but is a damn good workout. I also like the local forest, for a good tramp about, but have been known to get lost towards dusk, when the fog comes down !!! So now only go with a friend on clear crisp, or warm sunny days, with plenty of time to spare - lol.
I'm looking forward to all my excess pounds melting away, as the days warm up - the walking increases and the salads abound.
For the moment though, I'm walking into town (2 miles each way) at least once a week, occasionally walking to work (also 2 miles each way) and planning to walk 4 miles through local fields tomorrow. On the inclement days, it's the Wii - when time and workload permits.
Rediscovering which foods I genuinely enjoy, rather than eating quick fix 'rubbish', is a pleasure and I'm sure will be one of my keys to success.
For I will succeed!
