250km Whee! I’ve clocked 250 kilometers since I started wearing my FitBit in the middle of January. That feels really good. I take the stairs at every opportunity. When I leave my office to make supper, instead of loading myself down with laundry and some vegetables for supper and a bottle of wine, I take separate trips for each item.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m looking for3ward to getting outside and walking a circuit at lunch time but for now, it’s stairs and laps inside. Toay was a good day. We went out for lunch at the National Club but the meal was light – roast chicken (yes, I ate the seasoned skin), polenta (which I thought were grainy mashed potatoes) and some spring vegetables accompanied with a glass of good red wine. Very tasty. The passion fruit tart for dessert was even better. I didn’t overdo, we walked a lot to get there and I’m feeling happy to have spent the day with Hub learning about oil and gas stocks.

Tomorrow gives me another chance to make progress. “I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” Groucho Marx
