Monday weigh-inFor scientific purposes, I've researched the calorific values of a York Peppermint Pattie (delicious peppermint cream dipped in dark chocolate) and the Weight Watchers equivalent (spelt 'patty'). Not a ha'penn'th of difference. They're probably the same product, let's be honest. Anyway, two of these are my daily treat.
I've lost 1.1 kg (2.42 lb) since last Monday's weigh-in. Though I did have my glasses on when I was on the scales, so it may actually be quite a lot more than that.
I'm up to a 30-minute ride on the bike, which takes me — or so it says — about 11 km (7 miles). My first days in the saddle were really hard on the bum and boring, and the whole thing seemed impossibly hard work. But now I can see even this tiny result, I feel a lot better about it.
My bike time, with a good music selection, is great thinking (and huffing and puffing) time.
