It's such a glorious sunny Sunday here in Somerset, that I put my coat on and set out for a walk around the park. I have neglected my walking a little of late - the Summer was so busy and the new term has been whizzing - no time to do anything for myself but I want to start finding that 20 minutes to walk daily again.
Sam came with me, well cycled ahead of me!
I love autumnal days like today - beautiful blue skies but that slight chill in the air but warm when in the direct sunshine. The leaves are beginning to change colour.
Plenty of seed heads ready to drop
and this holly full of berries.
We even spotted this unseasonal flowering crocus - must be muddled by the weather this year!
The ducks were out in plenty accompanied by some very vocal quacking!
My daily walks, which I started in late February have contributed to my new look. Motivated by the most awful photo of me in the Ideal Home magazine feature, I embarked on a 'move more, eat less' campaign. I've been making healthier choices rather than diet and slowly but surely have started to see the results. I have lost 2 and a half stone now and am still confident that I can lose more- another stone by Christmas would be very welcome but I am also in this for the long haul and if it takes longer, so be it! I need to do it in a way it will stay off, rather than something faddy, that will unravel as soon as it stops. This is for keeps - a healthier me for good! (fingers crossed!)
