Phew, what a week. It was hard going, especially with it being cold which brings on an urge to eat crap unfortunately, but I resisted and was really good and kept everything as it should be. My excercises were done religiously after every pedal and I pedalled for 5 days this week.
This morning was a bit of a problem, my inner wimp was giving it loads, but I managed to beat him and get out for a 22 miler around the cut and Alvechurch.
This was taken just before dawn by Bittell Reservoir this morning.
I reached the 6 stones weightloss at my weigh in, cracked the 5000 miles pedalled with 5127 miles and completed Phill’s Nov 100 with 106 miles and a total of 492.45 miles! I’m leading the total mileage so far, but I know JB will have something to say about that!
To say I’m chuffed would be something of an understatement, when I look back to June 09 and how I looked and my pedalling capabilities or lack of, I don’t recognise myself now.
If you’re reading this and struggling a bit or thinking of starting a weight loss program, then just do it! There’s never a right time to start, I know, I spent 10 years waiting for the right time. There’s always some more urgent priority for our time, a reason to wait “until next week, next month” or whatever. But it’s not until you’re a fair way in to it and you start to feel the benefit of it that you realise it’s perhaps the most important thing you can do for yourself and more importantly your family.
Remember Henry Ford’s saying – “Whether you say you can’t or whether you say you can, you’re probably right!”
