started really getting into more brisk walking after the session with One You Haringey on Monday this week. As I had an agency registration to attend, in Liverpool Street, I got there by public transport so as not to turn up looking the worse for wear, but walked home after, approx 5-6 miles...then on Tuesday, I can't remember what i did maybe a couple of miles, On Wed, went to Cineworld Enfield, walked there...5.5 miles..one way, came back by bus, yesterday I walked to East Finchley but as i took the bus for part of the way, the walk was was about 7 miles both ways...today i managed only 1.5 miles to the local Tesco and back. I really think it boils down to sheer will power. Joining a walking group may make sense, but you have to wait for the day and time, whereas if you just kitted yourself out with proper walking shoes and a bottle of water for the long walk, and remember why you are doing it in the first place, you will succeed in maintaining a regular routine and before you know it, the pounds will be dropping off! Guys I think Im pushing myself mentally...lol....i will be checking my weight at the One You Haringey tomorrow to see if anything at all has come off!!
