When I used to go hillwalking one of the real physical challenges was ascending the Great Stone Shoot on Sgurr Alasdair on Skye. As you took a step up your foot invariably slipped back before you took your next step up. And to date my attempted weight loss has been exactly the same. I started well getting back into regular running but the 12 day October school holiday proved disastrous as the exercise stopped and the overeating began. I’m not good at disciplined eating when on holiday. We were up north in Wester Ross enjoying wonderful weather and scenery.
Then when we came back my mother-in-law took unwell and has been in hospital. This has necessitated daily visits; rushed meals which tend to be unhealthy and a bit of comfort eating thrown in. I’ve tried to keep up the exercise but it’s been cold, wet and miserable and on a number of occasions I’ve not even ventured out. However I am a kilo lighter than I was last time I posted so only 4 kilos to go. Can I make progress before the Christmas overeating?
