Time to get back to it. I have bunkered down for the month of January, I'm not a fan of being cold at the best of times - and the dark, wet days of January certainly don't constitute the best of times in my book. But enough is enough. Time to throw off the blanket, switch off the daytime tv, give away the last of the Christmas treats and start living again.

This morning I went for a 5K jog. Looking out of the front door, it was grey and windy and I began imagining how muddy and unpleasant the trails would be after all the rain of the last week, and I very nearly didn't bother going. But I pushed myself out anyway and I'm pleased I did. It didn't seem quite so grey once I was out in it. The birds were singing, the goats were scampering and the first buds of spring were appearing on the trees. I returned home feeling invigorated and slightly proud that I'd done it. A quick bike ride to the shops (4 mile round trip) and my legs are feeling satisfactorily weary, if there is such an expression! This afternoon I'm baking some snacks for a Salsa Party we're going to tonight - sounds fun! - then watching the kick off of the 6 Nations rugby on the TV.

I'm back tracking food, with a goal of 6lbs to lose this month. I have a good feeling about February!

    I definitely understand "satisfactorily weary."
