Acting out of character

I know that when my doctor poked me in the belly and admonished me for not doing anywhere enough exercise I felt resentful.   How dare she!

Well, since then:

  • I have bought a pedometer to keep track of steps throughout the day;
  •  I’ve started walking to the local shops rather than driving whenever I need to buy a small number of items;
  • I go for a 1 hr walk several times a week;
  • I have a quick walk during my lunch hour when I’m at work; and
  • I’ve acquired a bicycle and am just getting used to riding a bike with gears.

That’s so unlike me.

And I’ve further improved my diet.  I now have fruit and nuts for snacks rather than cheese biscuits and I have been using more fresh vegetables in my cooking.

I know it’s pathetic – this deep craving of mine for approval.

But do you know what.  I actually enjoy my walks.
