I am called Raffie and I've been a member since the end of May 09 now and have come on here most days to blog, log food or exercise and chat on the community forums. Its all very motivating. I live in Lincolnshire UK, with my dog, Toffee, a Saluki cross. We live near to the Viking Trail, so good for walking and cycling. Gainfully employed as a Customer Service bod for an exceedingly large company.
I have a small cycling addiction and have 3 bikes, my fabulous Planet X Carbon road bike, which weighs a mere 7.75kg. I have my Winter bike, also a Planet X but a Cyclocross bike, so a bit tougher than the roadie and I can go off or on road on him. He weighs in a a whopping 8.7kg :-D
The new bike to my 'stable' is a lightweight Reynolds 531 Steel Road bike of some 35 years of age. Built to race and boy, does that bike fly. He is called PeeBee - Purple Bike - and is my current 'go to' bike for riding. I might just be a little bit smitten with him.

I have been known to go kayaking and even to do a bit of jogging, from time to time, if my daft achilles will let me.

So that's me then. I'd love to chat to other Sparkies if you have the time. Anyone who'd like to friend me is more than welcome to.


Member Since: 5/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 99,515

My Goals:
10 stone something - new wardrobe
Anything less is a bonus and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Ultimately I'd like to be 140lbs so working down to it. Currently maintaing 142lbs, so that's pretty cool. Actually maintaining 140lbs courtesy of a bike addiction. I did buy 2 new tops and a pair of jeans.

My Program:
My programme mostly consists of riding my bike and walking for the aerobic side of things. Bodyweight exercises when nobody is looking at work, using the fencing, walls and anything else handy
I can't afford a gym so home exercising works well for me too. My iPod is very helpful for working out with.

Personal Information:
I live in Lincolnshire, UK. I am a Scot by birth but live in England as the Highlands are too cold for me.

Other Information:
I am a guitarist with a deep love of Eric Johnson. I love my dog, cycling and walking and I like to curl up with a good movie on a rainy day, a good book is even better.

    I just couldn't get over the name Lentil Dahl, and when you said you might put curry powder in it; I thought surely this stuff isn't really lentils! emoticon Thanks for clearing that up!!

    That was weird - that spark mail you just sent me said it was sent at 9.17 or something and it's only 8.15 - must be to do with SPs clocks going forward. Our turn next weekend...
    So excited for you for your move! :-)

    Thanks for commenting on my blog today! I'm glad people liked it so much! Red Lantern! I love it. Your life and your job sounds so cool. I am jealous (in a nice way, not a mean way!) that you live so close to a trail like that. There is no place to bike safely where I live. (Rural Virginia)

    Hope it's ok to add you as a SparkFriend and hope to see ya around SP!
