The newest bike.

It’s been a bit of an unlucky one so far, but I do love it. It’s an Orange frame from the late 90’s I’m led to believe – but it has been chopped around a little. In one weekend I’ve snapped a derailleur mount, and now today I’ve now got a puncture and had toContinue reading “The newest bike.”

It’s a far cry from a few years ago.

I’ve just done my health check-up. Blood pressure 113/77, SpO2 99%, Stress in the green. ECG pretty much as expected – no signs of any fibrillation. I know I’m still overweight and I’m taking steps to deal with that. Getting a new set of scales was a big step – I realised my old onesContinue reading “It’s a far cry from a few years ago.”

Back on the wagon.

After a rather shocking 3.4kg of weight gain over Christmas, I’m back on the wagon to becoming a healthy weight again. I’m now just 1.6kg up on my late November weight and as you can see from my picture my rather slimmer profile is back.

Having looked through my photos and my timeline it appears to be the third time we’ve played Hatfield Main club. A leftover from the old Hatfield Main pit and now standing at the edge of a housing estate and with miles and miles of desolation and spoil heaps on the other side. Regardless of locationContinue reading “Hatfield – the third.”

Lifestyle change is the key.

I’m hardly the perfect advocate, but you know when you see those photos online of before and after? Well these are mine. It’s just over 12 months since I began my lifestyle change from an unhealthy fat potato with plantar fascitis & knee pain to become what you see on the right. It was theContinue reading “Lifestyle change is the key.”

Do I miss meat?

I thought I’d answer some of the commonest questions and statements I get when I tell someone I’m vegetarian and have been over 20 years. I don’t eat meat, meat derivatives, nor do I appreciate cross-contamination of my food with meat and meat “juices”. Gelatine is a big no no, as is Carmine (E120), andContinue reading “Do I miss meat?”

Two new suits!

As you probably know if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@nomenloony on both) I’ve been on a bit of a weight loss kick. Since September last year I’ve lost 25kg in weight, starting at a rather hefty 113kg with a 50″ chest and 42″ waist, and looking like this: To a rather svelteContinue reading “Two new suits!”
