Saturday I tried on my second pair of walking shoes from Amazon and had the same result - too small. The manufacturer - Merrell - seem to make up their own sizing system and it's not even internally consistent. I was frustrated and annoyed so I decided to go to Sports Direct where I could try some pairs on. It's only a mile from the house so you might think that should have been my first resort, but I find the stores aesthetically unpleasant, the staff fairly useless - and who can blame them, working there must be soul destroying - and the corporate ethos unethical and disgusting. Having said all that, the shoes I found fit, were cheaper, and I was able to wear them back home - which somehow overcame my objections. I'm not proud of it, but I walked there with wet feet again so meh.
Sunday I walked about 3 miles for shopping purposes but otherwise had a quiet day apart from watching the new Ghostbusters movie (loved it - although I felt a bit sick when I realized the first one came out over 30 years ago) and drinking half a bottle of red wine. Although I did eat well, I'm still drinking too often though not usually very much at a time.
Today was a better day. I walked 3.5 miles (I'm breaking in my new shoes nicely), ate well and drank no booze at all. I also tracked everything I ate in MyFitnessPal, so I'm feeling pleasantly virtuous right now. One day down, hundreds to go...
Oh, and a busy week ahead - my brother is visiting Wednesday and Thursday and... wait for it... a job interview on Friday!
