When a Loss isn’t a Loss

So we've done it, we finished our second British Champs season and we came fourth - we're not bottom of the table!! So now to reflect on how we did* We've had a great season which has had various outcomes from both ends of the spectrum and everything in between. I for one feel we …

Emmersdorf – Traismauer

This morning I got Gluten Free Cornflakes... this was a revelation. I haven't had cornflakes in aaaaages, mostly because Sainsbury's changed their recipe so the barley malt extract levels are too high. So happy!!! Anyway enough about the food. Today's section was through Spitz and Krems. Spitz was where we were supposed to have a …

9 more days

In exactly 9 days I set off to my little jaunt along the Austrian stretch of the Danube. I've just about got everything sorted - travelling light, with a carry on only. And everything else now is in the hands of the fates. Yes, there may potentially be a British Airways Strike in the days …

Germany/Austria

This year I'm finally going on holiday (other than the annual centre parcs trip), and I'm going cycling with my Mam, so be sure to check out her blog too for updates! So yeah, Germany and Austria. More specifically we're cycling 214 miles of the Danube (read more here). And you can guarantee you'll get …

100 Fitstagrams

In January of this year I set myself a target; to do 100 additional days of fitness/exercise outside of my Roller Derby training sessions, If you follow my Instagram you'll be able to see my progress. So I thought I'd write an update on how it's been going and why I chose to do such …

4 more weeks…

So 14 days on from injury it turns out they're happy with the stability of the fracture. But there's not yet any bone regrowth, stupid non-adamantium bone structure! The wait goes on, on a positive note though it does mean my forced time non-weight bearing will mean that I'll heal better than if they'd given …

Hench-ness

So I started a challenge to get fitter and I'm doing it publicly toΒ keep me motivated. Which is daft really self motivation should be enough but apparently not! I've done: β€’hike/run β€’running β€’roller derby practice β€’mountain biking β€’30 day squat challenge (app) β€’30 day abs challenge (app) And as much as it might sound ridiculous …

Hench-days

As a new mission, as part of my a Roller Derby training, I have taken it upon myself to do more towards becoming fitter. I am not, however, focusing on my food intake. I'm a strong believer in not giving up my diet (which in the grand scheme of things isn't the worst anyway) plus …

The case of the missing aeroplane – or the saga of flight TCX6039, the Burgas edition (A Sunny Beach 2013 epilogue)

At midnight we all trooped onto our arranged transport to the airport. Some confusion began due to people not realising that whether Gatwick or Newcastle the buses still took you to the same airport. Arrival at the airport and all was fine. Went to check in at stand 21-23 and waited. Then came the time …

Mini-break homies!

Well the time has come for a Robbo excursion. Not on such a massive scale as the time when... (insert random previous destination). But good things come in small packages. So it has come to pass that I am off to Hungary, or more specifically Budapest. Myself and my travel companion for this journey are …

Over 1 year later

Random update: Wow. Its been well over a year since I started my new, albeit controversial, exercise regime. But since last year I have lost just over 10kg and I'm round about (what I consider) to be my ideal weight. But you know what, since the day I first inverted it stopped being about weight …
