It is occupying too much of my thoughts nowadays. The day now begins with a fear. "Will I be able to? Won't I? The pain - hope it doesn't strike. Is it the hip? Why does the leg hurt ?"
The other fear is of myself. The escapist in me is likely to just give up.
After I am back from the walk, the triumph lasts for a couple of seconds only. "What about tomorrow?" This is the thought that takes over.
From 10.50 am to 11.52 am.
The first three rounds were comfortable. Today I gave the shoes a rest and walked in my sandals. I thought I had nailed it. But during the 4th round, the pain began.. Decreased the speed, winced, tried to distract myself... struggled. At 16 minutes I was able to cover a distance of 1.3.
And then it rained.
Peered into the phone and realized that I had walked for 31 mins.
The rains put me off completely. I was in no mood to go in for a one hour walk again later in the day. Nor was I keen on hopping on to the treadmill.
Mercifully the rain petered down to a drizzle and I decided to continue the walk. And in this confusion I happened to reset the pedometer.
Walked around in the compound and realized that there is a patch where a porch shields one from the rain. Decided to walk in this zone for the next 30 mins.
The stretch was of about 80 steps . Reset the Pedometer , walked for 32 mins and a distance of 2.696.
Phew! again. Phew !!!

The weight had come down to a 92.4 kgs by April 2013. The Ladakh trip added just 1 Kg which i was able to shake off and it now wavered between 92.2 and 93 kgs.
Was a little concerned that I wasn't putting on the kilograms when the diet and walk had been put aside for more than 2 months.
The doc assured us that the body was now settling in and the metabolism had improved.
For the past 2 weeks each morning I was weighing around 93 kgs in the morning and going on to 93.4 before bedtime. This has now come down to 92.8 in the morning and around 93 kgs at bedtime.
At the end of this month I hope to close at 91 kgs .
Losing weight is part of the battle, Keeping it away is the difficult part.
Bed time - a liitle after 1.00 am
