No car end of week 2.

Yesterday’s pedal home was thankfully minus any bus assassination attempts, and on getting home I did my usual upper body and core work out.

Yesterday’s food was:

Breakfast – Porridge

Lunch – Pumpkin soup

Dinner – Toad in the hole

This morning’s pedal was in via Quinton for a change of scenery, very quiet on the roads, I didn’t see a single car until nearly at Bearwood amazingly enough. That was really cool. But then again that’s early starts for you.

Weigh in later today, and it’s the second week of no car and all pedal commutes. I’m feeling pretty good about that.

I was digging out and backing up some old files yesterday and came across this photo, it was taken 5 days before I started this lunacy, to be honest it was the first time I’d ever seen it and it came as quite a shock. Am I ever going back there? Absolutely not!

  1. It’s incredible how far you’ve come in such a short time, and is a testament to your determination and willingness to change, I take my hat off to you. Congratulations on your achievements to date and future ones.

  2. I’ve got one of those too. Saving it until my work to craft the perfect “after” shot is ready. (ie. 25 – 30 more lbs). But the change really is remarkable. Well done.

    How do you handle evening commitments with the family and your self enforced bike commute? The need to get to ball games, and boy scouts, and my own pursuit of sailing on Wednesday evenings in the summer is my biggest distraction for 5 day / week commuting. Okay sometimes I’m a weather wimp too, but I think can overcome that.

  3. Thanks Welshie, much appreciated!

    Mike, I’m lucky (or not, depending how easy you can get out of bed) in that I’m in work around 0600hrs and home around 1600hrs, that means evening activities with the kids and my rugby coaching aren’t mucked about with. Obviously the downer is a requirement to get to bed at a sensible hour, no late nights for me as I’m up usually at around 0500hrs!

  4. A great reminder of where you were and wont be again mate, in such a short time you have made massive progress 🙂

    Good luck with your weigh in still you don’t need luck your a very determined geezer who should be very proud of his achievements way to go Clive.

  5. I’m seriously impressed at how well you’re coping with being car free. Does this mean the ‘super commuter’ is on the Christmas list?

  6. You fat bastard! 😉

    Well done you, am in awe.
