To say I am knackered now is an understatement. The things we do to look good, and the punishment we give ourselves when we haven’t done any kind of exercise at all, can be quite brutal.
If someone actually said to me what I say in my head they would get a massive thump, but yet we can be our own worse critic.
Today I did another long walk, like I did last week up London, through Battersea Park up to the Power station, and back through Battersea Park towards Chelsea, and to Fulham Broadway.
Don’t get me wrong I know it is my choice and I don’t have to go for a walk, but when I don’t I will then criticise myself for not being the weight I want to be and then get frustrated because the image in the mirror is not what I want it to be.
Anyway I did complete my goal for the week, which is to complete up to 20,000 steps or more each week, and I am achieving it no matter how hard it is.
Please don’t think this is gloating I am just proving that if you set your mind to do such a goal then if I can do it, so can you.
As I have weekends free now as my sons dad looks after him on these days, I have time to myself to do some. However if you aren’t so lucky then get your kids to join you.
If they are anything like my son, they will be happy to be outdoors and I see a lot of kids running, walking or even cycling with their parents.
To help keep the momentum going I have started to do a Training log, to see what I have done and my progression, and I set myself a goal after each day I train.
Make it interesting by planning different routes as walking the same route each time can be boring, but however if you are like me have no sense of direction and can easily get lost then do plan your route so you know where you are heading.
Luckily I know my way around Fulham, Chelsea and Hammersmith, its a shame I no longer live there, any how comes in handy when I want to do my walking in these areas.
When I first lived in Epsom and Wimbledon I was forever getting lost that I had to call my mum who is really the worse person, as she has worse sense of direction then me, but I did and did manage to find my way back in the end.
Any how I am glad I have completed my walking for this week and now gonna chill for the rest of the day and make the most of my free time until tomorrow when it is start of another week.
Please let me know of where you walk if you live in London or surrey, I love recommendations, so please let me know. You can leave a comment below.
