A few weeks ago I was challenged on Fitbit by friends from Facebook. I remember when my friend and I downloaded the Fitbit app months earlier and we challenged each other. It was a friendly competition and it was motivating as she was trying hard to beat me so it kept me going. That was a time when my other friends thought I was being extreme and doing too much. I was reaching 20000 steps almost every day. I was going to the gym at 4-5 times a week, and after a long walk at the beach during the day, I would go for a run –well walk-run-walk type of run – in the evening. As long as I was number one on the leaderboard I was satisfied.
Being back home in Australia, my first step is to get back into shape which is part of my “what’s next” journey. My weight is always up and down, and even though I was doing well for a while and lost quite a few kilos, I put them back on when I started dating this new guy who took me out to restaurants too many times. OK, I should not complain because finding a man that will actually pay the check for you is quite rare.
