January 1, 2017 - 207., and nothing’s gonna stop me now!

As I more or less promised, here is my beginning of month (and in this case beginning of year) selfie. I weighed in this morning at 207.2 lbs, and I feel like I’m on a roll!

The weight is probably the lowest I have been this millenium. I still have a journey ahead of me, but I made some progress in 2016, especially in the last two months. Now I’m gonna try to keep the momentum going and see if I can meet a few goals this year!

Sunday Chillday
29 January 2017

I cancelled the ride for safety reasons this morning because of heavy rain on the radar & forecast thunder storms. People in other suburbs reported bucketing rain but we didn’t get much at all, so could have ridden. We often seem to be in a rain-free shadow. I chilled on the deck with tea waiting hopefully for a display… At least it smelled fresh.

But what do you do when the forecast threatens thunder storms and you cancel the ride? You eat your low-FODMAP energy bites with coffee, reading the Sunday paper; you harvest chillies; you make paste for freezing, whizz up sun-dried flakes, and put the fat ones in oil for eating now (and for bonus chilli-infused cooking oil). Then you do some weights, watch the Cadel Evans Ocean Road Race, and take the doggy for a walk.

Dinner was on the deck. What a splendid evening - a jaw-dropping sunset, rainbows, sultry temperatures. BTW Rob poured that generous chardonnay! #blessed

Bonus: I lost 1kg last week. Feeling empowered. 💪😊👍🌟🍀

It’s selfie Sunday everyone.

So prepare to be spammed all day with pictures of me face.

Also tag me in your pictures because I feel so out of tumblr lately and miss everyone and I’m trying to consciously get back into it.

Trainer Ride
26 March 2017

I didn’t like the look of the weather this morning - howling wind, splattering rain - but I wanted to shake out yesterday’s hills ride. I did a 27km trainer spin watching Stage 6 of the Tour of Catalunya.

Australian team Orica-Scott’s Daryl Impey won the stage with a 41kph average over a 04:34:14 race - impressive. The main peloton, which included Chris Froome, barely made the cut-off. But check out the freaky podium GIANTS that were handing out the prizes! Weirdness. Overall leader Alessandro Valverde’s kids went on stage with him and the lad looked most disconcerted!

Sunday
19 March 2017

I am over bands. Always too loud. I went to a cyclling charity fundraiser (supporting youth mental health and suicide prevention) last night but woke up dizzy and headachy after having my nervous system blasted. I didn’t ride as planned. I needed a rest anyway.

It was a beautiful morning so The Husb & I took the dogo for a walk and I cooked brunch. I recorded the Milan San Remo race so am closing my day watching it.
