The last year has really been the hardest of my life. My healthy life goals serriously handicapped by a semi-recent diagnosis of Atypical Depression. After talking to some people who have previously dealt with the illness themselves, and after going and seeing my GP – I am happy to say that life is starting to get its colour back.
Being the end of a year which has been particularly difficult for me I thought that it would be an ideal time to renew some old commitments which have fallen by the wayside.
Thanks to a kind heart, and great generosity, my wife’s grandmother has given me $100 to buy something for myself for Christmas. So, instead of getting an electric shaver or a DVD Boxset or something, I bought a Mountain Bike. I found a bargain at Target, and while I was initally prepared to pay the extra $100 – $150 for the bike, the checkout girl only charged $130 for it (hehe.)
I didn’t correct her.
So my plan is to bike to the train station nearest me (Home > Kuraby Station about 6.5Kms) and train to one near work (Yerongpilly Station > Work about 4.5Kms) each day. Later I hope to just go the whole distance.
I don’t want to be overweight and unhappy anymore.
