I’m doing something about it and losing weight slowly and I’m really trying to get back into walking. I do love walking but weight related lower spine pain is making it difficult. Why the HELL have I let myself get heavy enough again so this becomes an issue?
I’ve been inspired by a few people recently, firstly my partner Richard who quite often walks 3 miles to work. He’s pulled out his walking boots and is making a concerted effort to get healthier. Some of my work colleagues have been walking too either on a treadmill or just out and about. That’s where I found out about this wonderful FREE phone app called ‘MAP MY WALK’. Everytime I go out and do some exercise I’ve been switching the app on and it records my walk and estimates the amount of calories burned!
This weekend I had a goal of walking in total, 10 miles in short bursts. At the moment I’m up to 7.5 miles but cold and wet after having come back from Bestwood Country Park with my youngest daughter, Em. To actually go out again and do another 2.5 miles today will take a huge effort as if I’m honest, all I want to do right now is get into my bed and go asleep!
I know that’s not the attitude to have but….
Oh and I bought my first every pair of proper walking boots, I have to try and break them in first. They are very nice. I also found a great website with lots of walks on ‘The Walking Englishman’.
I’m figuring getting out and about more and walking is VITAL to losing weight and keeping it off.
Thanks so much for coming back and reading the blog. I truly have so little free time these days to keep things so regularly updated but sometimes things in life change.
I’ll try and do a new recipe real soon.
