Sorry for the misleading name but you will find some posts that are specifically about walking in London. The rest is the other stuff I get up to.

2,517,407 Steps

Quick update on the steps front - I am currently on 2,517,407. That's a little over 1,250 miles since January 1st and well on target for my planned 1,500 miles for the year. That is as long as we don't get torrential rain for the rest of the year.

I'm still not sure how I'm going to manage 2,011 miles in 2011 - I'm guessing I'll have to keep up the 7500-8500 step average and then go for some massive walks to top it up. I'll be interested to see how that works out.

In other news:
In the 12 months since 14th October 2009 to 14th October 2010 I've managed to go from 196lb to 178lb, increasing both water intake, and fruit and veg and I've smoked nothing in that period as well.

So well done me.

The target for the next 15 months is to loose some more weight. I'm feeling much better than I did at 14 stone, but at over 12 and half stone I'm still on the heavy side. According to the BMI calculators I should be between 10 and 11 stone, but I think that's probably optimistic. So target weight is 160lbs.

If that goes well then the only thing left would be to get the alcohol intake down. My average units per week are probably between 3 and 4 as they should be, but too much of that tends to be in one sitting. Anyway - no plans to change that until 2012!

Happy Birthday to me.

Yep its my birthday today, which I'm spending at my desk at work. Not too exciting, but this evening, we are going for dinner to Smiths of Smithfield.

Looks like it should be excellent.

Home and Dry

The lakes 2010

Back at work now after a fantastic weekend with the boys.
Thursday we took the Jaguar up to Blackpool, which was grim (well it is up north)

and after a very short stop went on to the Langdale Valley and found the Caravan, and shortly after, the pub.

Friday Morning we set out early, leaving the caravan looking like this,

and headed up into the mist...

But it was just too wet to get very far.

After breakfast we headed to Keswick, for coffee and cake, and a look arounf Cars of the Stars - a very strange little museum with some very interesting exibits like these.

We stopped at Aria Force on the way back.
