i've taken up walking again. i have to lose weight and i'm so unfit. i'd love to jog but for the life of me i can't run or jog. i tried tonight. walk briskly for a minute or so and then jog for a short period. (very short) i managed about five metres. that's really sad isn't it? and my shins hurt, but that will get better. i must say it made a difference because although i walked the same distance i felt like i'd gotten a better 'workout'. i got up a sweat in fact. i could never jog or run, even in school. i am quite flexible and can do a bit of yoga but i've never been 'bouncy'. by that i mean running and jumping and getting off the ground in fact. does that make sense? probably not. i'm also making a concerted effort to eat smaller portions and def. not go back for seconds. i borrowed the gabriel method from work and quite frankly it doesn't make sense yet. having said that i haven't even finished the first chapter but i'll give it a go. it came with a cd including a meditation session which i'm def. going to try.
