I’ll have you know I have done some exercise (ran once) and weighed in (new house scales which measure me half a stone lighter than any other). And that is that.
It has not been a good summer for exercise and weight loss. But it has been a good and a busy summer and I’m happy with that. We have finished moving into a smaller house while our house is fixed so I can relax and get back to normality.
Well, I could, except that I’m visiting my mum for a couple of weeks. The main problem with this isn’t that healthy eating isn’t going to happen (though that is a problem) but that the girls wake her up in the morning instead of me. Heaven. But if I’m not up early then the chances of getting out of the house for a run diminish dramatically.
Finally, today, I managed to get my trainers on and head for the hills. Lots of lovely hills. Many hills. To make things more interesting I used the Zombies Run app which never fails to amuse me (caveat: I have only used it twice – did I mention this hasn’t been a great summer for exercise?) and ran to one of the Game of Throne filming locations. Didn’t bump into any dire wolves but the zombies did catch me! Boo. I blame those hills.
Now I can feel each and every individual muscle in my legs and bum. And it feels fantastic!
