When the lockdown started, I took up the Couch to £5K challenge and have just started week 5 (I admit, I repeated week 4) but I am actually loving it. My knees, however, do have a little moan now and again, but I just ignore them. I was so enthused with this new regime, that I also started planning our meals and religiously recording everything I eat, so that we all eat more healthily and I keep track of where all those calories came from. Every other evening, Mr. Monumental and I have been going for very long walks exploring the local woods and footpaths and taking advantage of this lovely weather. I am feeling very pleased with myself – that is, until I step on the scales. Oh dear, I’ve so far managed to lose a grand total of 1lb in 6 weeks. Yes, reader, one whole pound!
Now I am sure that there are many of you out there, either in the health profession or just enthusiasts or will give me chapter and verse on what I should or should not be doing and where I am going wrong. I thank you for your concern, but just let me stop you there. I’ve decided that I don’t care! That’s right, I DON’T CARE, I am doing what I can to keep myself fit and healthy by endeavouring to eat balanced meals and exercising regularly. Yes, I could do with losing a few pounds as well, but hey, you can’t have it all! Experts will no doubt tell me that if I persevere the weight will start to drop off, so be it.
In the meantime, I will continue my regime and also continue to enjoy life with a little slice of cake along the way. If God gives you lemons, make a lemon drizzle cake I say!
