Is this really me?

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Yesterday lunchtime I met my sister and we went for a walk in a Forestry commission forest I had found near where she works.
She also is trying to lose weight, but unlike me she doesn't do a lot of exercise, so we had a lovely walk cool but sunny and dry, after 40 minutes she had to return to work.
When I returned to my car I realised I had hardly got hot let alone had a good work out, so I headed for one of my favourite walks and did another 45 minutes, did I work out hard, well I needed a change of clothes and a shower when I got home. emoticon
Even 6 months ago I wouldn't have dreamed of having that second walk but now... gosh is that really me emoticon

Can you believe this is England in October

And yes this is my bare arm, lovely weather..

    Looks like a beautiful day for an extra walk - it is funny how we see the changes in ourselves by being supportive of others

    emoticon on getting to walk with your sister. It was a first step for her and much more for you. You got to get some extra time because you felt deprived of more activity. next time take it to a trot like a horse and get a little more leg work involved you'll be amazed.

Great pics and I just love looking out over scenary like this. emoticon emoticon

Peace and Love
