It broke

| | Comments (0)
For a quite a while I'd be using an exercise bike we'd borrowed off Annie.  Off and on, over the past five years.  When I got back from our last holiday I had another go on it, and it sounded like the bearings were going on it.  So I didn't use it. Tonight I had another go at it.  Three minutes in and something gave, and now there's no friction.  So that's the end of that.

I did like having something that I could exercise on in front of the TV.  If I'd had a choice though I'd probably have gone with a treadmill.  Unfortunately decent treadmills are huge and weigh a tonne.  So it's all a bit depressing really.

Clean up week

| | Comments (0)
This week is an officially sanctioned clean up week at work.  Which would be nice except that's what I've been doing for the better part of this year anyway.  Wasn't sure how much difference one week would make to me.  So I thought I'd do things like clean out my inbox, workgroup files etc.  So far so good yesterday, but then today we found a problem that needed fixing pretty urgently, and a couple of us spent over half the day fixing it.  Such is the way of our jobs I suppose.  I didn't feel like doing much after that because it was too depressing starting my day at 2:30pm.

Tonight my step count was really low because I bussed all the way home instead of only half the way.  Was going to cycle but the call of the jigsaw and bed was just too strong.

Blah.

Borrowed Annie's exercise bike on the weekend.  At an average of 15km/h and only about 150 calories burnt, I don't expect rapid or huge weight loss... but a couple of kilos in the next six weeks might be nice...
