all change

Well you can’t of missed the fact that a little internal decorating has been taking place, not sure if I like it yet or not, plus there are few wrinkles to iron out, so over the next few days I will either be ironing or re-decorating again.

Well tonight was weigh in night and I went to the weigh in with more than a little trepidation. Because of lousy hand life dealt us last week, the diet went out the windows for two days. I managed to wrestle control back until the weekend when a lack of will power got the better of me. So when I stepped on the scales and found I was 2.5lb lighter than I was last week I was…………………….not impressed!

Let me explain, last week I put 5lb on, so this week while I lost 2.5lbs, I am only losing what I have already lost, so yes 2.5lbs is a good loss (especially under the circumstances) but I am not hanging any flags out.

I think a good portion of that loss came from the cycling over the weekend, how much would it of been had I eaten properly during the week? Maybe I am being harsh with myself but I have to be, I have to beat myself up about it otherwise I will just shrug my shoulders and carry on like nothing has happened which is exactly what I used to do when I found my trousers no longer fitted. I shrugged my shoulders and went and bought a larger pair which is why I am where I am today. Clive at The Massive MTBer blog, has changed the title of his blog. I am not going to tell you what it is, go and have a look for yourself but I agree whole heartedly.

normal service has resumed

When I looked on the Interweb this morning I found that this web site was unavailable, in fact it was blocked by Google. It seems after I made some mods (well asked for them to be done and were done within 10 minutes of requesting it at 22:50 last night) to the domain records so that I could hook up with Google, they saw fit to claim I was in “Violation of their Policy” and blocked my site (I was following their instructions). So I left it to see if it was just a time thing for the changes to propergate through the Interweb but by this evening it was still the same so I had to get the changes undone and now wait to see what Google have to say for themselves (I have appealed as they put it).

Unfortunately this was only the start of a bad day, I had to take the son to school and the wife to the doctor as she was not well. Fortunately I was working from home today and for the first hour or so this morning I kept losing the connection to work. Now if my laptop had been on wireless I could of accepted there was possibly a new wireless in the area interfering with mine by I was wired to the router. Then I got no end of grief and problems from work which stopped me from doing what I had planned, this continued throughout the day and ended with my e-mails disappearing into the ether everytime I sent one to my mailing list, 5 o’clock could not come soon enough.

Just changed the pedals on the bike ready for tomorrow, I bought them just after Xmas and have had them for a couple of weeks but I have been waiting for some work which is supposed to being done to my bike, but as there no sign of the work starting and it will be fairly muddy tomorrow what with the thaw and the rain so I decided to fit the DMR V8 peddles and damm are the pins sharp on your hands (had to hold them while tightening them)!

I am out of here for tonight just about to sink my teeth into a large Orange and no late night messing with the domain settings
