Dieting And Reading

This weekend I went back to the gym for the first time in Ages. I did enjoy it and had a sauna at the end but I really need to get back there more regularly to get back into shape. I went for a bike ride (the first one this year) and really enjoyed it too. I only went to Beverley but it was nice to get into the fresh air. I rode down Long Lane and managed so far riding no handed which was really good for me, as it means the old balance is still there! I bought 2 books this weekend too, the Hiary Bikers latest cook book and a dieting book by Paul McKenna. His book deals with reconditioning the brain not to eat when it wants or when you are bored. Hopefully it will help me control what I eat, fingers crossed!

Back To Normal

I've gone back to work, I went back yesterday and it feels like I've never been from the place. You just don't realise that having a few days off work should rest, relax and recharge the old batteries and forget about work. But when you go back it is like jumpiong back into old habits, hitting the old routine and before you know it, the memories of a Christmas holiday are so distant. The weather hasn't been fantastic either, they are saying it is th worst winter in the UK for the last 25 years. I don't remember it being so icy for so long though. The roads are not too bad but the paths are really bad. I've not been out on my bike and I don't think I'll be going out this weekend as the bad weather is supposed to be here for another few days. Oh well, hopefully there'll be stuff to watch on the TV!

Happy New Year

Happy New year to everyone out there, hope your year is going to be great! We stayed in last night, I don't really like New Years Eve so I'm happy to stay at home. I haven't made any resolutions for the last couple of years but this year I'm sort of thinking about some. The top one for me to to get fit this year, the fittest I have ever been. I'm really into cycling now and therefore I need to lose some weight and tone up. I'm just over 14st 3lbs right now and I would like to be 12.5st so that is my goal. I will be back to the gym, cycling and trying to start running again. The next one is to save money this year, I want a pair of Sidi cycling shoes which retail over £200 but they are the best. Also I want some Assos cycling clothes, which are really expensive too so I'm sorting stuff for Ebay and hopefully that will make me a little money towards the gear that I want. Also I need to get tattooed again as for the last 2 years I've not had the money to get my back finished and I want it done so I can start my leg. So watch this space!
