So, the attempt to do more walking seems to be working in fits and starts; my number of steps per day is climbing bit by bit. Not up to jogging or couch to 5k standards, of course, but getting there, I think – provided I can maintain the momentum. The important part of that is not hitting a certain amount of steps per day, but being in that mindset where I am prepared to get up and walk around every day; whether that is with Freddie at weekends, or on my own during the week when I’m at work.
The snacking still isn’t really under control though – I’m still finding myself drawn to snacks around the office, or I’m eating later in the evening that I’m happier with. I do need to rein both of those in so the gains from walking around more start to show up.
