New Year - and diet and excercise loom large on the horizon, but now that I no longer have my dog, Lucy, walking has lost its appeal, although I still do it when I can. However, Keith has a lovely exercise bike upstairs ... or at least. he did have, until he took it off to the shop so that he can use it at odd times during the day.
So I bought a stepper. It's small, doesn't take up much room and could be quite useful in melting away the calories.
Wrong! That too has been commandeered by Keith. If he sits on his computer chair he can use the stepper to exercise and strengthen the muscles of the ankle which was broken 10 months ago and still isn't right.
So I don't really mind giving it up for a good cause. And anyone who thinks that it also gives me a good excuse not to use it is definitely barking up the wrong tree!
So on to the diet - lettuce and water for dinner tonight, Keith!
Now I've just got to persuade him not to keep crowing about the thousands of steps he's done on the damned thing...
