Getting there

I am working from home today and tomorrow which is nice having been out and about quite a bit the lat couple of weeks. I went for a ride last night at about 8:45 and got home at 9:45, the great thing about this time of year, this far north is that the sun was still shining although it was getting a little cooler.

My final parcel arrived before we head south, my new sun glasses. I will readily admit that they look pretty stupid, but that is part of the idea, they are for cycling in and go well with everything else stupid looking that I seem to need to wear whilst on a bike.

The lens is some fancy photochromatic thing that seems to work very well and the hydrophobic coating makes a big difference by getting rid of the sweat and stuff that normally accumulates on the lenses. All in all I am very pleased with them.

Final weight mentions for a while -I am 99.6kg this morning meaning that I have lost 5.4kg since I started dieting (I think it was about a month ago now).

According to the scales I am 22% fat which means that my lean mass is about 78 kg. A healthy level of body fat is apparently between 8% and 20% so if I aim for 14% dead in the middle, then I should weigh 89kg. That still seems like a lot of weight to lose, but I am aiming for 90kg and I can starting worrying about the details when I get there...

    What knowledge of your body.
    I have heavy bones, not allowed for in these % fat tables, so I am not actually 58% fat.
    Sunglasses with hang-ups.
    Whatever next?
