365 Days

I stepped onto Durban soil exactly 365 days ago after living in London for a year. The UK kicked my but in a good way. I walked for an hour every day and ate cheap but yummy salmon four times a week. Oh, and this giant pink cake;)

Now I look like this. Since I've been back, I haven't done a stitch of exercise! Shocking, I know. There is a pair of trainers sitting in my closet that I bought when I got back. I haven't worn them once! Tut tut tut. Now I'm going to get back to some of my daily London habits like walking and eating better. Wish me luck!

I honestly can't spot the diff, except, obviously the hair!
Non the less it's always a good thing to your blood pumping. I been going at it for a while now and can feel the difference in fitness level. I am so proud of myself. I can now run for 8 min's out of 20. Next week 10. And nothing can beat the endorphins! Man you gotta love those little buggers!
Good luck lady La! You can do it babe! Do you do yoga, thats also flippen amazing! You sweat more than 20min on the treadmill and it's so good for everything man...
