So, it’s been a few weeks since I last posted an update – mostly because there’s not been any training to post about!
My news from the hospital about the osteoarthritis has taken a bit to come to terms with. More so the fact that the surgery will only last at best, five years. That’s not long at all.
I celebrated (if that’s the word for it!) my 40th birthday on July 26 – could this be a turning point? A good one, at that?!
I weighed myself on Monday, as always, and was horrified at what I saw on the scales. I’m not entirely sure why I was so surprised – I know that I’ve been over-eating, so should have expected it!
So, with renewed vigour, the diet started yesterday (two days in and I’m surviving so far!) and I even made it to the gym tonight, albeit for a “walk” on the treadmill. Still, a good friend once told me “Yvonne, it’s a marathon, not a sprint”. How very true!
