How very strange it is, to have my very own blog?
While I love to chat and share my Quests, the reality of someone actually taking the time and reading this, I must admit, is a tad daunting.
Nevertheless, this is my world and here’s how it’s going…
Since starting this Quest, there’s an awful lot I’m learning about myself that I hadn’t really noticed before.
I’m learning how I perceive myself and my appearance is really quite negative and impacts on my mental health far more than I had realised. THAT needs to change!
I’ve also learned after (hut-hum) 40 something years, my taste buds are not as willing to support me (without a fight) in this Quest, as they evidently prefer the naughty stuff, far more than the good. I’m pretty sure they actually shudder each time a lettuce leaf is offered to them.
I’ve also learnt (and for me, the most significant), is that I AM NOT ALONE. There are so many others, male and female, that long to make a change.
To lose weight.
To get fitter.
To begin enjoying life again.
Those who, like me, are ashamed of who they have become, but too overwhelmed to know where to start or even how to make that change.
Having a family, a career, responsibilities can limit the opportunities to make those adjustments. It’s not always as simple as ‘going to the gym’ or having a personal trainer and that’s where I hope I can inspire and show how #exerciseisntalwaysinthegym.
I still have such a long way to go but it’s not as far as it was, so I shall take that progress as I believe, those little positives, make the biggest of wins.
