The real Millie-Milou
Shared Fitness Tracker
I am called Raffie and I've been a member since the end of May 09 now and have come on here most days to blog, log food or exercise and chat on the community forums. Its all very motivating. I live in Cornwall UK, with my Husband and 2 dogs. We live 60 yards from the Camel Trail, a long distance byway for walking, cycling and horse riding,so we spend a fair bit of time walking there. I have a great job at a kids adventure park. Sort of a theme park for the under 12s. It's epic!
I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.
I have a small cycling addiction and have 2 bikes, my fabulous Planet X Carbon road bike, which weighs a mere 7.75kg. I have my Winter bike, also a Planet X but a Cyclocross bike, so a bit tougher than the roadie and I can go off or on road on him. He weighs in a a whopping 8.2kg :-D There are barely any hills in Suffolk but the off road riding is fun and flat-ish.
Having shifted 33lbs or so, using Exante - a very low calorie diet of bars, shakes and food packs, I've now joined Slimming World as the VLCD thing was not sustainable for me, with all the exercise I do. With SW I need to shift another 7-10lbs and then maintain. That's the plan, at least. This stuffing your face to lose weigh plan is a tad weird but I am assured, by other Sparkies, that it works. Fine by me.
So that's me then. I'd love to chat to other Sparkies if you have the time. Anyone who'd like to friend me is more than welcome to.
To see 11 stone something on the scales. Every 7lb I lose, I shall buy myself a new CD.
10 stone something - new wardrobe
Anything less is a bonus and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Ultimately I'd like to be 147lbs so working down to it.
My programme mostly consists of riding my bike and walking for the aerobic side of things. Bodyweight exercises when nobody is looking at work, using the fencing, walls and anything else handy
I can't afford a gym so home exercising works well for me too. My iPod is very helpful for working out with.
I live in Cornwall, UK. I am a Scot by birth but live in England as the Highlands are too cold for me.
I am a guitarist with a deep love of Eric Johnson. I love my dogs, cycling and walking. I like to curl up with a good movie on a rainy day, a good book is even better.
