How do you deal with your well being?
Last week I returned to Weight Watchers although they don't call themselves that anymore, it's literally WW now! When did weight become such a bad word? Sorry I digress.... this is one step in getting rid of the waves of melancholy I've felt over the last few months. I am a gold member but I'm currently out of my gold weight range of 8st 9lb-9st 5lb having weighed in at 9st 12.5lb.
Everyone knows you lose weight when you eat less and move more. It's a simple equation scientifically proven. So I've been tracking everything I eat and walking lots as well as going to the gym and its been rewarded with a 2.5lb loss.
In a attempt to keep those pounds moving in the right direction and needing to lift my spirits I got up put on my exercise clothing and trainers and made the 3 mile journey to the seafront. The weather was beautiful and I walked for 6 miles stopping for a brief break after 80 minutes for coffee and a banana that I'd brought in my rucksack. I had a small thermos bought for Christmas which has proved invaluable over the last year. The windfarms busy generating electricity sparkled on the horizon and it was lovely to see two young women doing a yoga session on the beach with their trainer. Although I had my earphones in listening to my latest audio book I always greet people along the way and engage in conversation. There are always people in a worse position than your own who feel the need to chat to random strangers, just like the lady who was on her third diagnosis of cancer and was being so brave. The good weather continues until Sunday with another high of 21-22 degrees forecast. Next week will be warmish (18-19 degrees) but more changeable, so I'm making the most of the sunshine while I can. The longer I don't find the need to turn on the heating the better. Bye for now. Tx
