What am I made of? Right now, a bag of jelly just about sums it up :))) I'm feeling the effects of the assault on the open air gym yesterday. My arms, shoulders and chest are wobbling like mad. Legs are also slightly unsteady after the sq... Read more
Lovely sun :)

My friends left yesterday - I managed to get rid of some of my old clothes as they fit my friend's gf and she loved them! I gave her all the skirts, some trousers and some tops. Next time I'll prepare other stuff so I can give her that too. Fi... Read more

Following from my streak blog, I've had another great week. As things calmed down a bit, but the weather was less than amenable and I couldn't really go cycling much, I decided to take a week off and pamper myself. Twice this week I de... Read more
I'm on a streak!

You know when you feel like you're doing no wrong? Is it just me or is it a very rare feeling? Well, right now, I'm right in it. My planets must be aligned, or maybe I rubbed a four leaf clover without realising, or maybe you need someone... Read more
I should have been in bed two hours ago...

... but I'm so glad I stayed up late! I've been applying for jobs lately. I usually wait right until the last minute before the closing date to submit (unless the ad specifically says it may close earlier if sufficient applications are rece... Read more
42 km, a free lunch and the mother of gratification!

Today I managed 42 km on the bike, yay! The weekend was very draining and I needed some physical release, so today I started cycling and just kept going. Feel better now! I also met an ex colleague that I hadn't seen for a while. It wasn't ... Read more

This morning I weighed myself and the scales said 73.6 kg. I haven't updated the ticker yet as I want to make sure it's not a fluke, so I'll check again a few times during the coming week and if it's still there I'll update it on SP. And as th... Read more
Much harder than I thought!

This morning I woke up knowing I had a tough day ahead. This was to do with a club I help run where some members are causing troubles, and while I can completely see one side of the argument and agree with it, I disagree with how things have bee... Read more
Why losing weight isn't so important any more
Saturday, August 07, 2010      3 comments

I still want to lose a few kilos, which hopefully I will do in the next few months. However... I am now a size 12 (down from about 24) - the smallest I remember being as an adult is size 14-16, before now. I have more energy than I rem... Read more
I did what?

I think I mentioned in some previous blog that I'm not best friends with clothes shopping. I tend to avoid it as much as I can. Until recently, I'd splash out every 5 years or longer on classic good quality things that I'd then wear out unt... Read more
How sweet!

On Friday afternoon I went for a ride. It didn't start very well, as some idiot in a car clipped me while overtaking me with not enough space. Fortunately no damage, I wobbled a bit for a second but I didn't fall or anything. Then I got cau... Read more

One of the things I brought back from Italy was a massive headache that wouldn't shift. It started 2 weeks ago today and no amount of painkillers seemed to even scratch the surface. Yesterday I went to the doctor about it and he said it might be... Read more
Back to normal!

The week in Italy was exhausting! I was still standing on top of the plane steps when it hit me - a wall of heat engulfing me. Within a few hours I had to use my asthma pump as I couldn't breathe. I tried walking around in the days I was th... Read more

Off on hols I go! Well, kind of hols, anyway. I'm off to spend a few days with my family and celebrate my sister's birthday. Apart from my father in January, I haven't seen them since September, about 20 kg ago. I'm ready for a barrage of c... Read more
Did I have a date?
Monday, July 05, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday I managed to get up to 25 km in the end, although the last 10 I walked rather than cycled as I was in the company of someone. Which brings me to the question: was it a date? I'd been chatting to this man on the net, and a few days... Read more
