I'll be going away for a few days from Wednesday, so I won't be able to cycle until the end of the following week when I get back (although I'm hoping to do a lot of walking).
With that in mind, I thought I'd try to put as much cycling in a... Read more
No, not the one with my aunt :D

Lazy, lazy, lazy :(
I've been feeling dead tired the last few days. I have to drag myself out of the door, and some times I've not even managed that, preferring going back to bed instead.
On Saturday I missed a BBQ at a neighbour's 'cos I couldn't keep my eyes... Read more
Well, in the greater scheme of things I realise this is very silly but...
I can't help feeling very angry, annoyed and upset at how Italy got herself kicked out of the World Cup.
Not that it wasn't deserved, a pack of dogs would have play... Read more
Got a puncture today!
Well, at east I *hope* that's all there is, although it could be the tube completely gone. tomorrow I'll ask a friend to show me how to fix it if it's fixable, or I'll take it to the shop if it isn't.
Fingers cros... Read more
Well, so far about 4 or 5 neighbours, plus a couple of local shopkeepers, have told me: "Oh, you've lost weight!". An ex colleague said: "Oh my god, if I'd seen you in the street I wouldn't have recognised you!"
Which is nice :)
I've hard... Read more
I'd been wanting proper ice cream for weeks, but the nearest place where they sell gorgeous ice cream I know is in Regent's Park. So today I cycled there :)))
Regent's Park and back, plus a little detour, worked out at 30 km!
Got to do... Read more
Someone obviously forgot to turn the tap off!
I did go out last night and the computer was fitted correctly (I traced the route on SP when I got back and it gave me the same mileage). I only did about 11 km as I had the brilliant (not) idea to brave the A1 from Holloway to Highbury Corner..... Read more
Have bike, will travel!
I finally got my own bike! The one my friend lent me was a good start, but this one I have now is just brilliant!
I've spent the afternoon fitting the computer on so I won't have to remember every street I ride on to track the milage. It re... Read more
I didn't go for a ride yesterday as I was feeling too miserable to do anything. Which is stupid really 'cos if I had gone it might have made me feel better.
I went today, though. So far I've managed 40 minutes in two bouts, I'll probably pop o... Read more
A couple of months ago I left a reasonably good job in a pretty brilliant place, for another job that gave me less money. However, the new job was what I really wanted to do and the organisation seemed brilliant, so I had no doubts.
Turned ... Read more
Saboteurs and motivators
Well, I know I have lost a lot of weight since just over a year ago. However, I've done it within the safe limit of about 1 kg a week (much less now) and I am still not within my healthy BMI range.
I want to get to about 5 kg below my upper ra... Read more
Spreading the Spark?
With all the weight I've lost without replacing my wardrobe, people are commenting on my loose clothes.
I don't mind, I've always liked loose clothes: they're just so much more comfy! So that's what I reply whenever someone mentions it, before... Read more
