I am overweight - not badly, but enough that I am frustrated and need to do something about this. The problem is that I am also very lazy and love Junk Food!
I have been suffering with a damaged left foot for over two years, first it started as planter facitis and then shin splints and is still sore. I have seen podiatrists and a sports medicine specialist, but am still struggling, so am now about to see someone else.
But ... and this is the problem - it is a great excuse not to walk or exercise, because basically I am allergic to both.
Since I have been trying to lose weight, my scale numbers have increased instead of decreasing - I have become a yo-yo dieter. Losing 5kg and then putting them back on and losing them and gaining them. As a saying said: "I keep losing weight, but it keeps finding me again."
Last night Elizabeth needed to get out of the house for a walk and so the two of us headed out for a 40 fast walk in the dark - it was wonderful - cold and brisk, but clear skies and stars. Just what we both needed.
Today she came and asked me to walk with her again - I didn't hesitate. This time I took my camera and we made it into a beautiful walk to the river. We live in Paradise, so enjoyed the warm sunshine and the push. My feet still hurt, my shins ached and my thighs knew that I hadn't walked in months - but I am feeling better.
Here are some of our lovely sights from today. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed my walk.
