New Year, New Me

Happy 2009!!!!

I had a lovely Christmas. It's hard to believe it is over for another year.

Today I dusted off my treadmill and walked for 20 minutes. I have decided that I may be waiting forever if I wait until I have no pain, so New Year, new start. I will walk for at least 20 minutes on the treadmill on all days that I'm not working. When I am working I now have to park my car a long way from work and walk, as we are doing renovations and there is no close parking.

All the Christmas goodies are now eaten and it is time to get back into more healthy eating. It is hard to be inspired to have salads here at the moment because the weather hasn't been good, but nevertheless I really need to start eating more fruit and vegies and salads again.

Let's all inspire each other to make 2009 a happy, healthy year ;-)

Sorry to hear that the weather is not too good down there - it is so hot here I really can't be bothered to eat anything - most days we only seem to eat two meals a day. Not good I know but between being busy with things and the heat - I just can't be bothered. Must try to do better from next week.
Take care and have a great day !

I think it is a great plan to walk on the treadmill. It is hard to get past the pain but all too often weeks, and months go past and we realise that nothing has changed!

Yumm, fruit and salads. I actually love them, just need to make sure they are in the fridge :)

I am inspired ;)

Happy New Years to you too!
Congratulations for restarting your exercise. I know pain is a bummer especially when you miss exercising. Just remember - take it slowly.

Happy new year to you too and hoping that you find some improvement in the pain youve been having. Good on you for starting the exercise anyway - hopefully it might eventually help manage the pain. Take care Love Z xx
