This is the blog of someone who's having an UnSparkly weekend. I'm eating rice salad (containing three times as many vegetables as rice) Always the sign of food sins to expiate when you catch me eating rice salad.
I have just been reading another Sparker's blog and she's talking about a hot tub. Well, I've seen one on telly so I know what they look like, but as to trying one out . . . Maybe I'll book one somewhere for my next big birthday.
It's very clear though that I'm luckier than a lot of people. Some Sparkers live in small towns where there's no gym and nowhere to walk. I've got a gym membership and I'm only ten minutes' walk from the gym. The membership also allows me into a swimming pool, 25 minutes' walk away. And, something I used to take for granted: in England there are public footpaths all over the shop. We've also got designated national trails for walking or cycling or riding. Makes you wonder why everyone isn't out there all the time.
Then you look out of the window and it's raining again!
I do think though that it's relatively easy for us in the UK to walk from A to B. Of course if you live in a city like London as I do, it's also very very easy to get the bus. Everywhere, all the time.
I'm promising myself not to get the bus anywhere that I can walk to in half an hour or less.
It all counts. And I'm feeling very very bad about this weekend.
Of course if I stopped eating cake that would count too.
This is the second blog I've blogged today. The other is here: confitdecanard.wordpress
