Oh wow, what a beautiful day.  It was marvellously warm outside, and I did my walk with a spring in my step and joy in my heart.  I still need new music to listen to though, peeps – any suggestions for songs between 127 and 135 beats per minute? That’s my favourite walking speed – not too fast, but faster than my normal walking pace, which keeps me pushing the speed.  Unless I have a beat to push my stride, I tend to start daydreaming and dawdling… Especially on an evening as gorgeous as this!

Oh, and – the venison burgers and sausages are a total hit with my tastebuds.  UK Dukaneers, I went for the Highland Game brand, which you can get at most big Tescos stores.  Dunno about the other big supermarkets.  It’s low in fat, low in carbs but high in taste.  Now, I know that the burgers (not the sausages) are mixed in with some pork, but all’s you gotta do is look at that fat content – not bad.

I was tempted today by biscuits at work – as usual.  Biscuits should really not be allowed in communal areas while there’s someone there trying to resist them.  As Cheryl says, “would an alcoholic put a vodka in front of them?” NO!  But people consider alcoholism or a smoking addiction to be a much more valid kind of problem – those of us with problems with food are merely seen as weak. Grr.

Anyway, not to worry.  We shall prevail! How are we going with our spring-attack, Dukaneers? Are you joining me for the walking?  Clocks go forward this weekend remember, so we’ll have EVEN more light to walk by, hurray! 🙂 I went out today in just a teeshirt and sweatpants for the first time since last October, it was so “warm.”  And it was brilliant. 🙂
