Self Worth

Self analysis can be depressing when one faces themselves. I say this because of the realization of what I have become.

In the last 7 months I have become everything I hate and despise. I have become fat, let's not pussy foot around like a bunch of PC fairies. Let's call it like it is. I'm flipping fat.

It's a byproduct of me dealing with various self issues by using food to feel good and deal with stress. Food and drinks have become the replacement for exercise. I used to train for hours on end plus work. Now I barely do any.

I have to ask myself is this not only what I should be like but more importantly. I say fuck no. It's time to make some flipping changes.

Sun and New Parts

Finally we are seeing the sun and the snow is melting.

The new seatpost arrived in the mail and looks good so far. tried it briefly yesterday and seems good. Last night installed a section of old inner tube to keep the crud out.

Now that the sun is out the real training and riding can commence. The goal is still to lose weight by the end of May. I'm going to be trying a more Kenyan type approach.

The new issues of MBUK and Singletrack cam out over the last couple of days. Some good stuff in both. Gotta say they are way better then the mags we have here in North America.

Stealth Profile

For almost 2 weeks kept myself off the radar as I recovered from being sick. Plus the winter was getting to me.

Last Friday pulled the trigger on one of these babies,

Should be fun. It was cheap and I figure it is a good way to find out if it works for me before I actually spend $300 on a Joplin or a All Mountain Post.

So with the snow melting I can finally start ramping up my training and work on losing some weight. Plus begin an experiment I want to try this year.
