Last week I was really rubbish at going out for a walk on my lunch breaks. But yesterday I dragged myself out in the cold and the rain (and walked to a library a bit of a distance away so that I at least had somewhere nice and warm to go, if only for a few minutes). Part of the reason I am trying not to let the weather put me off is that since I have been trying to make sure I do my 10,000 steps each day I think I have lost about half a stone. So, no dieting or anything like that, just making sure that I get up from my desk at lunch time and get some exercise – and as I like walking anyway that isn’t really a hardship. Although I do destroy many pairs of shoes by walking in them too much. I was really surprised when I weighed myself at the weekend and realised that I had lost that much weight. So now I just need to keep it up. Although today I have a meeting at lunch time, so I’m not going to do all that well today.
The other thing that is happening today is that I have an appointment for a check up with a brand new dentist. The second dentist I have ever seen in my life (and I do have regular check ups), so this could be traumatic seeing someone else after all these years. I figure if I don’t like my new dentist I can just find another one. What’s the worst that can happen? Probably best not to come up with too many answers to that question... *gulp*
