Hello, Guten Morgen, up bright and early to get this page published so all our enthusiastic walkers can start logging their miles. We are ten months into the challenge, another two months left to go for this year. I hope you are all staying positive. If you have dropped by the wayside a bit you can easily pick yourself up and keep on keeping on.
I know the weather is a bit chaotic at the moment, and we don't always feel like leaving the comfort of our warm homes, but I can guarantee that once you step outside and keep up a brisk pace, you will start to feel warm inside your body.
It's movement that keeps you warm, and it's a lot cheaper than sitting in front of the fire watching TV, huddled under a blanket.
My total miles so far this year is 1015. No, I am not stopping just because I have reached the 1000, this is ongoing for me. It's a long term commitment to look after myself. I have probably done more actually, but I only count the times I leave the house with the sole intention of walking for exercise. Ambling around with a slow dog and pottering round town is not exercise. My walking is brisk on the flat, with a bit of huffing and puffing when I go out and find some hills.
So, howzit going for you? No doubt we are all going to eat a bit more naughty food, and enjoy a tipple, in the run up to Christmas, so now is the time to keep a check on the weight. If you find you are craving calories, go for a walk instead to take your mind off cream cakes and wine.
I'll be checking here for the rest of the day, so let's see your comments come piling in with your miles. Don't let me down, but more importantly, don't let you down.
Catch ya later, Toodle pip
