Health Kick!

On top of the worries about my teeth (which are a bit sore - but the dentist said they would be after he had a good poke about on Monday), we also are a little strapped for cash this month.... So as a solution to this I am walking home from work rather than taking the bus. As I am doing a lot of overtime in the office (school holidays and not many gigs this month) I am also taking in lunch, or at the very least keeping lunch under £1.

I am rather proud of this though I'm not sure how long I'll keep it up. Yesterday was Day 1 of the plan. I took in one banana and one marmalade sandwich (not the usual sandwich fillings I know, but you have to work with what you've got!) and was certain I'd stick to it.

By lunch-time I was HUNGRY! But after eating my sandwiches I realised why these are not usual fillings. It's because they're GRIM!

Work was busy, so I didn't finish til late. My boyfriend walked in to town and met me after work. We then walked home. All 5.69 miles (9km). If you're good at maths you will realise this meant he walked 11 and a bit miles..... half of that just for me!

Today I took it a bit easier. I walked half way home, and got my boyfriend to pick me up on his way home. This was MUCH nicer!!!!! It took a LONG time to get home yesterday. Today only took me about 40 minutes walking plus about 10-15 mins in the car.

I think I can keep it up. Unless I have a gig - which means cash so the deal doesn't apply! I'm interested to see if I lose weight... I'll let you know!

You are a better woman than All that walking would suck!


I hope that you do lose weight. Being a full-time pedestrian is a hard thing.

wow-that's a lot of walking...especially if you've only eaten marmalade sandwiches!! :)

It's such a healthy thing to do, though. I just can't walk that far. Lazy, I think you call it :)

Happy TT!
