Motivation at last

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I've been very unmotivated lately. No valid excuses at all - I just hate the dull skies we have mostly had here and the wet and windy weather that seem to go with them. I am pretty well on track with food but have not been exercising nearly as much as I should and certainly with no enthusiasm. There must be a secret calorie count for enthusiasm - I always know when I've done whatever my activities may be with enthusiasm and when I'm just half-hearted. Anyway - yesterday the sun was shining - seemed like a miracle - and I went walking in a local park where I was rewarded by the sight of this little fellow who cheered me on my way.

Seeing him provoked a conversation with some other passers-by and a couple of them told me about a Healthwalking Club based in the park which will certainly encourage me to set out with them every Friday around the park or to places further afield. I can also volunteer to help with the gardening in the park which will be great because I no longer have a garden and really miss working in the soil.
All in all a good trip out yesterday which has certainly put a smile on my face. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is wonderful Sonia! Just think if you hadn't gone out you wouldn't have been rewarded like you were! I treat counting calories.and exercise as a day to day job. Sometimes I enjoy sometimes I don't...like any job. So you're normal! 😊 Having someone to talk and walk with makes it more fun!. Taking pics too for sparking makes it more fun for me too! Thanks for blogging about it and the pic of the cute squirrel. Enjoy! ❤👍 xo

    I'm surprised you've been less than enthusiastic of late as I've seen on your feed you've been doing yoga and your bike-------maybe it felt like a chore, a "I had better do this or the pounds will pile on again" feeling.
    SO I am THRILLED you've found this club. A new circle of friends to make too.
    WONDERFUL.......have fun on Friday!!
    Plus the better weather is coming, so you and I will both be feeling more chipper emoticon emoticon

    Enjoy you day babe, just in from the garden with everything done that I wanted to get done, in time for a shower and PMQs.
