We Feed on our Greed PART 1 And you thought I’d said it all yesterday, well no, I had only just started my rant. I feel better today, the soap box isn’t as tall and I feel by the end of part 2 I will be cleansed and calm. And I will say it again… Read More We Feed on our Greed … PART 2
I was all set with a blog about repairing my aged cycling jacket when I received a notification from a friend on facebook. She asked the question…… ‘Right a decision has to be made, should I go to weight watchers or slimming world???…. The number of comments that followed was endless including my own ….… Read More We Feed on our Greed
Wheel of Wakefield Sports Relief Challenge 2016 Alarm went off at 6am. First thought of the day, gosh I feel pretty nervous but why? I cycle all the time (well not ALL the time), I’ve done sections of the Wheel of Wakefield before, I pretty much know where I’m going (always getting lost).

Emma is very kindly supporting me throughout my year of fitness. Her visit, I must admit was a double edged sword. Emma has such a wonderful way about her… Read More HOW OLD!?!?!?!
Day 3 Today has been a day of setting out my goals, health checking my bike and booking myself a health check tomorrow to check I’m ‘fit to get fit’! – I know I would normally just clamber on the bike and away I go (or not) but since I have put myself out there… Read More Planning & Plotting
