HM2014 – 15th May

Well I reached over 11,000 steps yesterday, which is significantly higher than normal! Before work I went for a very sunny walk around Yeadon Tarn. At lunchtime, I went for a quick walk around the block, and then since I needed to make a call to my insurance company, I took my phone outside and paced up and down while I was on the phone for an extra 600 steps! After work I went straight up to Yeadon Tarn forĀ another walk around, and it was...

HM2014 – 14th May

Well it looks like the weather may finally have turned! I went for a quick ten minute walk around the block at lunchtime yesterday, after which it proceeded to rain torrentially all afternoon. But by the time I left the office and got to Golden Acre, it was glorious sunshine, and it made for a very pleasant walk! I’ve reached my step target of 7,500 per day both days this week, but unfortunately Cameron has done 10,000 each day, so I...

HM2014 – 13th May

Yesterday was not such a great day at work, but a great day diet-wise. My day started off with my usual walk around a very sunny Yeadon Tarn, which definitely woke me up! After having a meeting that ran halfway over lunch and then coming out of the meeting to torrential rain, I decided to skip the lunchtime walk in favour of being dry for the afternoon. So after work I went up to Golden Acre for my nightly walk. It stayed dry, but the grey...

HM2014 – 8th May

Damn the rain! It’s been so miserable here the last couple of days, although that didn’t stop me from getting all my walks in yesterday. I started the morning with a 7am walk around Yeadon Tarn, which was pretty peaceful. I then went out at lunch for a mile walk around the local park/housing estate. I must have been walking faster thanĀ I thought because when I got back to the office, not only was I soaked from the rain but I was...

HM2014 – 7th May

Well yesterday was my first ‘off-day’. Although saying that, according to Fitbit I was bang on target for calories, so I guess it wasn’t that off, but I’ll let you decide for yourself! The day was supposed to involve a trip into Leeds to walk around and do some shopping, but after spiralling up 18 floors of the multi-story car park and not finding a single space, we decided to drive to Manchester and go to the Trafford...

Red sky in the morning, Shepherd’s warning

I’ve kinda been slacking on my morning walks recently, which is definitely reflected in my average daily steps on Fitbit. It’s really hard to make it to target when you stay sat on your backside! The sky was vividly red this morning though, a brilliant welcome back, and an excellent motivator to get back out there tomorrow!
