Blowing Off The Cobwebs
I bought a book on my Kindle a few weeks ago called Run, Fat Bitch, Run by Ruth Field(I bought it for a laugh but ended up really enjoying it). It's all about using walking and then eventually running to change your life. I can see a lot of sense in it although it's not for the faint hearted or easily offended.
Since reading the book, I have started walking a 3 mile circuit at least 4 x a week and I find that afterwards I feel like a new person. I didn't walk on Sunday or today and I really feel the difference. I have been an emotional wreck today and totally scatter brained. When I walk, I have the time to really think things through in my head, blow of the cobwebs and get ready for the day ahead. I prefer to walk first thing in the morning even if it means getting up before the birds. There is nothing nicer than walking when the sun is rising, it's a magical feeling.
The whole point of the book is that all you need to do is walk/run. If you do this, everything else will fall into place. Weight loss will be a side effect, fitness inevitable and you will have a mental clarity that you never thought was possible.
