Against the odds we got this

On our 94th Bridge walk tonight they decided to light up the rail bridge and so I took my camera.  It was almost literally blowing a hurricane but the rarely lit old beauty looked good.

It was actually hard to stand still enough in the wind and rain to get a photo, but I persevered.

I confess.  I really like King of Limbs.



The diet. The latest.

Well, it’s been a tough but exciting two months.

I’ve cycled 400 miles and walked 240.

I’ve been on a (roughly speaking) about 1500 calorie a day regime but it’s been worth t as I put on a suit yesterday that I “earned” from Smiths Menswear in 1995.

Most pleasing of all my BMI moved from obese to overweight this morning.  That’s a really big thing for me as it completely re-categorises me in my own mind (mind you that’s on the halls md scale (an American model that challenges the usual dodgy findings of the existing BMI standards that take no account of muscle percentage, merely weight.  NOT THAT I AM SAYING I AM MUSCULAR.

So, I have a good half stone to go on the regular measure to make that claim but in my mind I am no longer obese.

I’ve lost 13.5% of my body weight so far and am 70% towards my target of 50lbs lost by 50. (Mid May.)

I know I will get there now; it’s only a question of when?

Thanks everyone for your support so far and especially Pete and Jeana.

Me?  I’m off for some scran.

 

 



Astonishing ski video

OK, so I don’t DO ski.

But one can’t help but admire excellence in other fields.

Check out this video then by JP Auclair.  It won a bunch of prizes at ski film awards for his LCD Soundsystem video.

The bit I love most is the sparks flying as the skis hit gravel.

Reminds me of driving on the golf course at dusk when the titanium sole plate of the driver catches grit on the Tee.
