I started (almost furtively) in January a walking challenge - #walk1000miles, I thought I was setting myself up to fail and my challenge would be viewed with some cynicism as I have a dodgy knee and err towards being a couch potato.
I needed this challenge to help me move on from work related stress and depression which I was/am struggling to shrug off - it has been hard (both mentally and physically) thanks to self doubt and a dislike of walking in anything but balmy weather! And to make things harder for me, I decided to only count boots on miles! So, it didn't matter how much I pottered about the house, walked about in the garden or the shops - these steps did not count.
Here are my 12 for 12 in 2019. January had snow and rain and the flu, February I badly sprained my ankle, March - a bit of rain!, April the weather finally started to be kinder, May - sprained my dodgy knee (argh!), June was warmer and drier, July was positively beautiful, as was August, September was a bit hit and miss but we still walked as best we could on a daily basis, October - a bad month for walking a combination of commitments and rain (so so much rain), November - back to mud again and now in December I have reached my target - much to my surprise and even more surprising .... I have signed up again for 2020 ...
Oh, plenty other stuff has happened but most of that has been either blogged here already or it is not for general consumption!
Here is to a better year - for you, for me,
for this country, for your country,
for everyone -
❤❤❤❤❤❤❤Happy NEW YEAR to you all❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
