A step in the right direction

Sunday, December 15, 2013

So, I've been walking to work for 5 days now. My son has picked me up in the evenings as I have had a bad cold and am not quite up to walking both ways

The walk is nice; just over half an hour. It starts with a treacherous totter down the steepest hill in our fine city then plateaus out with a stroll along the river then ends up with a puff and pant up a short but fairly steep hill, then I am at work... all hot and bothered but rather chuffed with myself!

I have walked back from the city a couple of times and the steep hill really takes it out of me; but I have discovered the number 23a bus will bring me up to the top of the hill for only a pound. It is worth every penny and I am a good girl and only get it after work, or if I have heavy shopping, plus I only get it for the hill, not all the way from the city centre!

I weighed myself this weekend and discovered to my joy that I am back to the weight I was a couple of months ago; before a week away with oldest-bestest friend on an all inclusive eat and rink al,l you like and lie by the pool holiday, which was followed by a week in bed with a bad cold.

I reckon by my birthday I shall be well on track to fitting back in to my favourite clothes!

Woohoo!

    Sounds like a great walk, and a great way to start your day. emoticon

    Congratulations! I started walking/taking the train to work a few months ago, and it was the best decision I have made in a long time! I feel great when I get to work and then don't have to feel guilty if I don't get around to exercising at night. It took some weeks to see results, but now things are all coming together. Tomorrow, I am going to try something new: I am going to bring my Nordic Walking Sticks to see if I can speed myself up, especially if there is ice in the winter. Happy walking!
