Enough sitting around feeling sad.

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

It's been a tough few weeks. I know that grief is expressed in many ways, including changed eating habits - some people eat less and lose weight, others reach for comfort in the kitchen and gain. I now know which camp I fall into, having watched the numbers creep upwards once again emoticon

Enough is enough. A friend sent me this link yesterday.

I've signed up. It seems a good incentive to resume my quest for fitness, maybe drop a few pounds in the process, whilst raising money for a very worthwhile project. And it makes a change from harassing my friends for sponsorship money!

Their goal is to have 500 people sign up. So far, there are 109.

Anyone out there fancy an Autumn challenge? Come and join me!

    Remember that every one grieves differently and how you do it is not wrong. Keeping fit by exercising and eating correctly allows your body to support your emotions. Sometimes taking long solitary walks is helpful; sometimes it is not. Try to increase the things that make you feel better. If you get so low that you cannot function, please see a counselor. emoticon
