Who knew that losing my jobs would lead to weight gain? I guess it's because I have more time to stuff my gob now. And drink.
Give or take a few pounds, I have been the same weight since I graduated from high school. But now I think I am close to weighing more than I ever have, and when you're my height and build, an extra 5kg is really noticeable. We don't have a scale, thank goodness.
I'll turn it around, however, and in true warrior fashion, I have taken advantage of the early spring weather, jumped on my Mongoose and cycled over 100km in the past two days. As my grandpa would say, my tired is hanging out.
Yesterday, I cycled around Royal Park and then up the Railway Canal Path, and then a bit of the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail. It's a decent ride, but not terribly photo-worthy along the segments that I rode.
Today's ride was much nicer. I took the Capital City Trail to the Merri Creek Trail, cycling all the way from our home in Brunswick to Coburg Lake. The weather was equally spectacular as yesterday, but today the paths and surrounding scenery were better. It was also a more demanding ride, which I appreciated from a fitness standpoint, although I fear that I will be moving very slowly the next couple of days.
