Thank you very much.
I'm always wary of posting stuff like this, because I think it smacks of "Look, I'm saying thank you to these people, why don't you cough up some cash as well". That's not what I'm doing. Please don't send money if you feel like you should after reading this.
I'm continuing on with the training. I could be doing more, but at least I'm doing something.
I've lost a bit of weight, and a bit of girth. My stamina on the bike is improving.
I've continued getting "motivated" by the personal trainer. She's very good, makes sure I'm doing things with the correct form, and makes me work until I literally can't lift things any more. It's a very weird feeling. You're trying to lift something, you've done it before, you're pushing as hard as you can but it's just not moving.
My arms ache today.
I'm up to my body weight on the leg press machine.
Did a fairly hilly (no escaping it around here) 30km ride (with 550m climbing according to my Garmin, 350m according to Strava) last weekend. I actually felt good doing it. Re-discovered some of the love of long distance cycling.
I can't believe that it's June already. This year is slipping by so quickly.
I need to step up my training. Must get fitter quicker.
I'm aiming this year to get down to the weight where I thought "Oh my god I'm getting really fat", and then next year down to the weight I first thought "I'm fat, actually fat".
There is other stuff going on, which I'm not writing about because I just want to talk about myself. It's not that I don't want to, but I don't think it's my place to, and I don't want to diminish it by doing so.
