So you remember when I said I’d do a fitness challenge and turn things around and lose a good chunk of weight and be fit and blahblahblah?
Yeah you guessed it, after the trip to Belgium, I gave up totally and completely. I was so tired from the stress of buying a house, of going to job interviews and of juggling plans to see everyone while in Canada, I wasn’t eating very well.
So officially, I can say I failed at the goals I’d set but this week has reminded me how losing weight and feeling better can be easy. I just need to start walking more, like I do when I’m in Ottawa. Granted my legs hurt like crap from the past three days of being on my feet all day long, but I bought new trainers with special soles yesterday so that should help me feel better about walking longer distances. I enjoy walking, it’s relaxing and it’s fresh air, so without setting myself specific goals, because holidays and house moving and other crap always comes in the way of me achieving them, but with the new Cambridge job, I’ll have no choice to walk more everyday. And I’ll do my inevitable walking, but I’ll enjoy it too! 🙂
And as far as being in Ottawa goes, so far it’s been lovely, seen lots of friends, got some precious time with my sisters… Now I just want to spend more time with my mommy before I leave!
