I stumbled and fell, and now I have picked myself back up again. My weightloss was going well, and when I peaked at around 12kg I simply stopped. Initially it was the walking that stopped, then it was the diet that went out the window.
But now I am back on the band wagon. Starting off simple, no carbs in the evening, bringing back my protein shakes, and riding my new bike!!!
In this map, the blue line is the walk to the Clarence St Cyclery to pickup my the bike in the previous post. The green line is the ride I went on. Without zooming in, you can’t tell that the ride around centennial park consisted of 2½ laps! The whole ride was spot on 30km.
Obviously with this posting, it can be inferred that I am still alive. That IS the case, I AM! But I am soooo STUFFED!!

I had planned to catch a bus/train to the shop, but got all excited about getting fit again and so I decided to walk! That was 3km, and in doing the walk, I remembered why I stopped walking. I have my spurs on my heels and as I was nearing the shop they were already hurting again :(
I picked up the bike and headed off on my journey. I had forgotten how dangerous it is to ride in Sydney. Cars (and busses) just don’t seem to care and will pull over in front of you, open their car doors, travel so close to you that if you sneezed you would dirty them. But, unperturbed, I continued.
There is but one thing to say: I am SOOOOOOO unfit. So, it’s a work in progress. Back on the bike, and let’s get fit!
