Today I got the spark !

Everyday I get the Spark !

Some days it helps me loose a pound
Some days it helps me find a muscle
Some days it gets the garden looking good
Some days it helps me do the housework
Some days I make a new friend
Once it made me clean the car

Everyday it makes me drink water !

Everyday it's a new begining !

Everyday I get the Spark !


I have a treadmill - Let me tell you its a real love hate relationship ! Most of the time especially in the summer when I get my exercise in the garden I just dust it with a guilty look - but eventually when there is nothing more I can do outside and I have spent a little time making excuses I get back on it again !

So that I have some reason to go there apart from my obvious belly fat - I needed something to motivate me - So I decided to do a virtual walk around the coast of the UK from my home which is near the coast right around the edge and back home again !

I have discovered that the UK is bigger than it looks on the map and this journey will probably take me the rest of my life - but still with the help of Google maps to help me plot and look up places of interest along the way I am plodding along and finding out all sorts of things about my Country and just to make sure I remain accountable I have decided to share my progress on this page
