    Mainly walking last few days as I've done something to my feet. I need to get some proper trainers to peddle in as I keep scrunching up my toes when I peddle and then they ache like Billy- o.

    What a lovely view ..

    I have not written on here for ages ..

    But I have progressed to walking 5 days out of 7

    3 to 4 miles ...and I jog about half a mile started doing that last week ....not sure I will jog further I hsve a restrictive lung ...so I stop and start a bit ...
    But the half mile stopping and starting feels really good x will try to continue with that ...

    Out in the garden with spring sunshine and loads of birds
    was lovely today.
    Been painting a mirror to hang in the garden .
    Fresh air and spring sunshine - keeping active helps lower
    the blood sugars . :)
