Sparks of light

It's a grey and gloomy day today and the house is chilly. I try not to turn on the heating while I'm working from home because I'm tight and it makes me get up and about to warm up.

I took the dogs out for a lovely walk at lunchtime though. Mostly grey and gloomy but the sunshine peeked through once or twice to lift the spirits.

I was planning to turn back at this point but a combination of the hint of sunshine and my Fitbit encouraged me to carry on further up the hill to walk a longer route. The extra loop increased my stairs from 25 flights to 39 and probably added 1500 steps. This is exercise I would not have taken without my little plastic pal. Hooray!

And the gorgeous scenery of course.

The extra calories burned will not go amiss as we have darts and dominoes tonight so I may be able to squeeze in a glass of red. I will NOT have the chips or sandwiches though! I do not need that stuff at 10 pm. Hopefully my little pal will help me see the light when I'm faced with that temptation later.
