Also, I've joined up with several other women on a weekly, Friday walk. I went for the third time this week, and walked at least four miles, instead of the two the route map said! However, I woke up this morning and my legs weren't hurting - so another Yay! I'm obviously getting used to it. Oh, and I bought myself a new bike, that I am in love with, and have been out on it! More than I did with the last one.

Through the diet and exercise I am feeling a lot more positive in myself, and finding a lot more energy, as well.
I am keeping very busy with current work commitments, and negotiating more of the same, but different. As my back is hurting more or less full time, I am having to switch away from the housekeeping, and looking at 'cherry picking' social work consultancy work. This way, I get to choose the parts of the job that I enjoy most, such as making assessments and managing decisions. Much less stressful than being employed full time, and being part of the rush and tear, methinks.
Hmm, perhaps it's the Spring finally making an appearance that makes a difference. Certainly, my bezzy mate coming to stay for a week from tomorrow is a big boost, Hurrah!
