I’m clocking K’s for R U OK?

This July, I’m making a commitment to run every day and clock my K’s for R U OK?

I’m taking on the K’s for R U OK? challenge to stay connected, develop good habits, and create a world where we're connected and protected from suicide.

Your support helps R U OK? to provide essential free resources to schools, workplaces, families, and communities across Australia, and empower them to start a conversation that could change the life of someone who's struggling.

Please support my efforts by donating, and together let's get everyone asking R U OK? starting conversations and changing lives!

Struggling

Wednesday 14th Jul
Returning to work it has become a struggle to walk after work. The cold weather and a very sore tummy.
 My stomach muscles are suddenly being expected to work daily after 12 months and being cut entirely in two & then repaired twice. I have averaged over 13000 steps a day, since the beginning of July. 
Unlike the abs we are born with its very hard to describe how it feels when the two sides do not work as one.
But i am very grateful this physical battle is so much easier than the mental battles! Once again I am blessed with so many people around me to stop me spinning into the depths of darkness. So many people are not so lucky!

Joined today by the fabulous Sue. Walking and talking made the kms fly by. Was a wonderful catch up 😀. 
Keeping social keeps the darkness from creeping in.

An adventure back into the Australian Botanic Gardens. Huge numbers of walkers all through the gardens thanks to covid.
After a video call mid walk from my 8 mth old granddaughter talking and kissing herself in the mirror. When do we stop loving ourselves and start worrying what others think!
