After the dark...

After the dark day that was yesterday I woke in better more determined form… I got the bike out and hit the lagan towpath. I can’t speak more highly of it; I just love getting out and watching the world go by as I cycle past. I went for the same distance as last week (11ish miles). I was fighting some moderate wind occasionally on the way back which was a little extra work for the legs and boy they are feeling it! I made it in 50 minutes.

Last week I was shattered for the three days following and I’m hoping the aftermath is no where near the same this week. I think I may push for two outings this week with the second perhaps coming on Thursday. I promised myself that I would look back on the positives over the last 4 or so weeks to keep myself focused. So pardon the review if it bores you but its more for the author than the reader. I love how bloggin helps me process!

Positives from the past 4 weeks or so.
*My intake of chips has dramatically decreased!
*I have had one chocolate bar and a funsize at that.
*I think that I haven’t had any potato crisps!
*I’ve only had one portion of ice-cream.
*I’ve started exercising and enjoying it.
*I’ve given myself targets.
*I’ve started the weight loss blog.
*My fruit intake has taken a dramatic increase.
*Jane and I are spending more time together exercising.
*Jane and I equally motivated towards changing our lifestyle (Rare)
