So why now?

If I’m honest it was finding out that I weighed more than my boyfriend. Although it was 1kg more than him and although he is a cyclist; marathon runner and general sport/exercise enthusiast. He could exercise everyday doing a cycle for 60km as a warm up…The fact is this simple truth hit home – I do not want to be the fat girlfriend!

So why now? My answer is why not now? I plan to be honest and true in my progress and in this journey. I don’t see it as being easy, but I can see a healthy happy fit future and look forward to meeting my new self.

I did another run/walk today not as far as yesterday but with so many hills I literally wanted to die. What I find helps is music, also my boyfriend runs ahead and it helps to focus on the music in my ears and watching his feet move ahead of me. I also tend to sing out random parts of the songs I’m listening to… seeing my boyfriend smile and chuckle makes me smile and chuckle and forget what I’m actually doing.
