What do you wear to cycle? I don't know what to wear. I don't want people to take me too seriously as a cyclist so I wear dresses. That way when I stop to catch my breath (frequently) they will know I'm not a proper cycling person.

I do long distance running so ive got all the ugly breathable crap from that. Just wear whatevers practical tho. Sportswear is worn as casual wear now, chicks walk around town with their ass vacuum sealed in yoga pants and so on, and then you get the people who cant go for a bit of a walk without putting on sweatbands and trainers and all that to make sure everyone knows they are PROPER EXERCISING 3 MINUTES EACH WAY TO THE SHOP

i actually wear a bumbag while running/cycling which puts me on an otherworldly level of Sportswear Mastery

i think they say that you shouldnt weigh yourself every day when dieting but it keeps me honest and motivated, i realise i'm not gonna lose 5 pounds overnight but every time i slip into a new pound-bracket i'm so pumped

its coming off pretty well gotta say i thought counting calories would be a huge pain in the ass but it literally means you can eat right up to the limit, like if you know you have calories left for the day you can just have another wee snack


edit: for all that i'm not finding it hard, i do feel a vague sense of being a bit off. i wonder if thats just as a result of being a wee bit calorie depleted or something, i'm like cola thats been out 15 minutes and is technically still fizzy but not quite at its peak i suppose once im happier with my weight i can have a wee swig of chip oil here and there, my kind needs this, little extra crud around my organs

Thanks Kevin and HermanHesse, my newly appointed fashion gurus.

Good stuff, jinny. I do worry about meal replacements though, so please look after yourself. (sorry to go all mumsy on you )

I've kept up with the cycling and walking and it's really done the world of good. Definitely feeling brighter and annoyingly chipper than I have in a while.

^ Well done, Jinny, I hope you manage to lose weight for your holiday! I am not a fan of shakes and all that meal replacement thing, anything fake, but if it works for you NOW, it's ok, whatever gets you to your goal! Just think of what you'll do afterwards, focus on real, natural food, cut the rubbish out and you'll be fine!

@ Jinny, I read your yesterday's posts about eating...I wanted to suggest a food diary. Have you tried it? I used to keep a piece of paper in my pocket and would write down everything I ate, I only did it so I can keep track of kcal, not looking at what I actually eat. I still do it on days when I know I'll be around a lot of food and it would be too much to keep it in the head. So it's not a real food diary, but I am able to control myself with this simple trick, you could also use it to see what you actually eat, how nutritious your food is etc, but for me it's all about the total kcal intake. I do choose heathier foods though. And you only need to drop a dress size, if I remember, so don't give up! You'll get there and don't put too much pressure on your self...on the days when I fail...that piece of paper goes in the bin before it's even dinner time, and it's forgotten right there

I think myfitnesspal has one of the best online food diaries, I tried it for maybe a week or two, it's not for me, too much faff, I keep it very simple. But you could have a look, maybe

Noticing that my cfs is through the roof at the moment and I really don't feel well with it. I suspect my recent diet of stodge and junk is the culprit.

So as of today - healthier food, a lot more water and I've also started taking turmeric supplements - they're supposed to be anti-inflammatory and inflammation is the root of all evil, or so I've read.

^ I got through a jar of turmeric capsules quite recently ... what's the main ingredient? Capsicum or something. Didn't notice much improvement ... can't remember why i took them neither

You do seem to like your stodge - are you a fussy eater?

^ I don't know what I'm expecting to feel after taking them for a while tbh. Not even sure what I'm hoping for I read somewhere recently though that inflammation is behind a lot of health problems, possibly including depression so I thought it would be worth giving them a go.

I am a fussy eater. I have super sensitive tastebuds so stuff that other people say is sweet just tastes bitter and sharp to me. Me and most fruit/veggies aren't really friends which doesn't bode well for my attempts to eat healthily.

Yeah, perhaps that was what sold it for me, that it was a general 'fix-all', along with whatever it was i actually wanted fixing. Curcumin is the main active ingredient (not capsicum (is that something? did i make it up?)) but it's poorly absorbed into the system and it's highly recommended that you take your supplement with black pepper or that you buy your supplement with peperine included. I didn't take it with pepper nor do i know whether my supplement included peperine :/

That's too bad, i love fruit & veg. I've become far from fussy in my older age. Have you tried different varieties of fruit & veg to experiment?

^ Interesting, I didn't know that about the black pepper. I'm not too keen on the idea of tipping a teaspoon of it down my next though.

If I'm honest, I haven't done an awful lot of experimenting with fruit and veg because I'm lazy. It's definitely something I'm going to have to look into doing. I'd be tempted to ask for any recommendations if I didn't think it'd just become a reason for you to suggest I get myself a cucumber

Yeah, it looks like most of them include black pepper/peperine, so you should be good. You could always take it after a meal, if you use pepper.

Go on, experiment! There's so many varieties of apples (for instance), you're not telling me you dislike them all. Or try eating bananas at different stages of ripening - most people have a preference for that sort of thing (i'm not a fan of overly ripe one's).

You mention cucumber .. (there's no helping some ) ... have you tried cheese & cucumber sarnies? Honestly, it's not too noticeable - not that it's particularly flavoursome anyway, but i really enjoy them. Try onion if you're not a cucumber sorta girl..
