Last Day Of Excuses.

OK, so far I haven't started.  Interested in my reasons? 
I couldn't move my hands/arms for 2 days so was unable to ride the bike.
I need new, decent shoes before I start walking.

I was hoping to be on my way again by the start of December and as that is tomorrow I need to get a plan sorted.
I will probably walk and cycle as my main moving so I need the shoes ASAP.  I might be over in Mandurah this morning, I will see if I can get a pair.  The bike is OK, I don't need anything to get started on that and I will use that when my arms are good.
I will write up a sheet that shows what I have done and when and tape it to this thing to get me off here and out there.
I will go public and use the thought of people seeing how little I do as motivation.

So here's to my last day of excuses and unfitness.  Healthier me....Here I come.

Time To Start.

It is the end of November, 2010.
I am fat and unfit and I REALLY need to do something about it.
I have Fibromyalgia.  I need to be careful with what I do so as to not aggravate this.
I am Iron Deficient Anaemic and have been taking Iron supps all year.  Other meds as well now but I still am not well.  I am having regular blood tests and if there is not enough improvement with the next one they will try something else.  I have had heaps of tests but no reason was found.  I don't go for another blood test for another month.  In the meantime I *think* I am using it as an excuse to not do anything.  I'm hoping that if I go public then I will do more.  So here goes.

I aim to do some moving every day and to be fitter than I am now by next Friday.  And then fitter again by the Friday after that.

But I need some concrete aims.  Maybe I could aim to climb Bluff Knoll again.  That would be pretty cool.

I'll go day by day but by Friday I will be fitter than I am today.
