Wow I can't believe it is so many months since my last blog!
Last year was challenging in many ways, with all those changes on the job front, the crazy inflation here in Kenya (food goes up every time you shop) and the new health challenges.
Hope this year my health can stabilize a bit.
In September I developed a wheeze, then it got better, but I developed now a wheeze on every run.... Gosh don't want to have to deal with tat, but I guess this is just another thing to be tackled head-on. then when I was getting round to having this sorted out and seeing the specialist for asthma medication, I went for the annual eye check-up and was told the cataract has gotten worse and I should think of surgery. Well I went right for it and had it done. Now I see better than ever (I was severely short sighted before...), but suddenly need reading glasses.
Difficult to get used to, still feel silly carrying them with me all the time.
Now after these 2 new challenges I am 3 month without a decent run (have been walking though but that is not the same.... :) ), about 2 kg heavier and URGENTLY need to get back to exercising.
I have found a new gym near work, which I can afford thanks to a pay rise (Yipeeh!!!!) and will join as soon as the Doctor says I can exercise again, am seeing him next Monday.
Since I have lost this weight before I know I can do it again!
So i am up to this challenge, are you?
