My Journey - Planning to get there.

Friday, March 05, 2010

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!

    Thanks for all the welcomes and encouragements, folks. I'm looking forward to all of this. Spiffycat - I love walking in the Forest of Bere, but don't ever risk it alone so that limits me. I wonder if it might be a good place to do a HANTS Team jaunt - I'll make a suggestion on the Hogs' Trough and see what the uptake might be.

    I love my walks on the beaches near me, I went to Moors valley and walked there a few days back, I went to the Forest of Bere day before yesterday I have a couple of my walks on my blogs with piccies.... I do wonder if we live near each other ?

    To date we have been so small that a get together has hardly seemed an option. Once I get back from New Zealand Catherine and I will set our minds to it and see what we can come up with.

    The walking is a Good Thing! I recently found that having become used to it, my body resents it when I don't bother to walk! All the best on SP!
