I am starting this blog to help to motivate myself even more on this weight loss journey. I started just after Christmas 2009 and I know it will be a long journey but one I lknow will be worth it in the end. This has been a long time coming....

I know I have already said it, but I am LOVING the sunshine! Although as I type this it has dropped cool and clouded over, although it's still good for doing my laps round the building at work. I have to check around the building as part of my job any way so I may as well be earning activity points as I go! I once was that bored that I counted that one lap around the building equates to 200 steps. I also counted that my other walks around the building add up to around the same, all these steps soon add up though and get me those activity points! I managed to earn myself 5 yesterday with all the running around at work and then my lovely walk in the sunshine (have I mentioned that I'm loving the sun?!) afterwards.

I needed to pick Mr B up from the train station at 5ish so I decided to walk around a country park called Pugneys that's at the end of the road from work. It's very nice,there's a main lake where they do boating and other water sports, and a smaller one where you can go birdwatching. The path around the main lake is around 1.6 miles long, with my super speedy walking I went round in 30 Min's, was very impressed with myself! I did get very annoyed with all the little flying bugs though, they always appear just when you need to breathe in! Whats all that about?!

After my walk I still had loads of time to waste before Mr B's train got in, so I decided to pop to the supermarket. My friend has been raving about green tea with lemon for ages, so I decided to try some. Now I'm not a tea drinker at all and she'd promised me it doesn't taste like tea but I can still smell a faint whiff of it. I have now had 3 cups of it and am getting used to the taste. I may even go as far as to say I might even like it!

Tea was a very yummy chicken stir fry last night. I have to admit though that I feel like I'm getting bored with eating the same things. Could anyone recommend one of the weight watchers cooking books? There are so many to chose from!

Working a 12 hour day today, so not long left until 7 pm rolls around. It was very short notice though as someone has gone off sick, so I've had to change my plans for this evening. Oh well I'm sure I'll cope!
