A new metaphorical path - to get off the treadmill of skipping breakfast, full fat coffee, high fat/sugar breakfast, morning tea and lunch, chocolate for afternoon tea, processed food for dinner washed down with wine and no exercise thrown in for good measure.
The new path is not that new - I have walked/run it before. I know I can do it. I know what it takes to LOSE weight. Follow the good path. Resist the temptation to follow the easy path. Because that path ends up in Obeseville.
A new literal path too! Gone are the ocean views and sea breezes. They are replaced with a multitude of footpaths to choose from. The dog and I will explore them. The mild temperatures of the coast are replaced by the extremes of the inland (-5.9C this morning as I finished my walk through heavy frost). My lazy morning starts of 8am on my days off are replaced by 6am/dark-o'clock starts to fit some exercise in my working day.
The new path. A new day. A new start. Bring. It. On!
