This losing weight business is hard. Watching what you eat all the time. Thinking about every choice you make. Exercising more. All while still doing everything else you have to do in your life – work, family, romance writing. And, on top of it all, I’ve been listening to way too many different people telling me what I should be doing. It’s all quite stressful.
Well, I’ve taken back control.
I never wanted to walk another half marathon. I don’t need the challenge. I have enough other challenges in my life at the moment. I also don’t want to spend my every spare waking moment out walking by myself to train for a 21km walk either.
I want to get back in the pool and start swimming again. I want to go to a Pump class again. I want to spend more time writing.
And I want to be a good friend. I conned (yes, I said conned) Janet into doing a half marathon with only 12 weeks notice when she was starting from absolute scratch. She didn’t need that pressure either.
So… we’re walking the Hawkes Bay 10km race this May, not the half marathon. We’re going to have a wonderful weekend, a great walk and lots of laughs. It will be fun.
And I will continue to lose weight my way.
