Hello and Good Morning on this murky start to the day in North Lincolnshire. Seems Autumn is well and truly with us now so my daily walk will be dependent on how the weather is panning out. I walk Bailey poodle four mornings a week, soon to be three when Jane starts on Monday next week, but I don't count this in my challenge, because he spends a long time stopping and sniffing. Can't really call it walking.
So how have you been doing? We are nine months into the one year challenge, time flies when you are having fun, and I hope it is still fun for you. I like to watch my numbers go up, writing it on my calendar each day. At the moment my total stands at 938, I was hoping for a bit more, but I have missed some days when I have been doing other things. I am still ahead, after making my new challenge to walk 100 miles every month.
So let's see how everyone else is doing, time to bare all, the highs the lows. Have you had a good month, or a lousy one? Are you jumping up and down with glee, or hiding under the duvet? Whatever your total is I hope you have been doing some walking.
This challenge is all about looking after yourself and feeling great. Whatever effort you put in you will reap the benefits. Put no effort in at all, and you will become grumpy and slide into decline. So, if you have two legs that work, even if you can only do short distances, just do it. Look at the amputees at the Invictus Games at the moment. Having no legs and arms doesn't hold them back. You've just got to admire their stamina and determination to succeed in their chosen sport.
Let's hear it from you then. This post is where you check in with your progress, shout it from the rooftops, be proud of your achievements. The Anonymous option is back for this, so no excuse not to comment. It's open to everyone.
Raining here, and time for breakfast, I've got some of that lovely fruit to enjoy. Have a good Sunday. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
