It's been a while... Got no idea what I weigh right now and to be honest I'm not interested in finding out for a good while yet. All I know is I'm running out of clothes that fit and I'm tiring more easily so I'm back, I think my head's in the right place now. I'm hesitant to buy into the new year new me shtick. We've got to work on our health when we're ready, there's no fixed position for any of us to start from, don't know when how or why but for me, when it's time, it just clicks. New Year, I don't think is a great time to start. I do like the idea of a fresh start, new beginnings and all the rest of it but that's all it is, an idea. In reality, nothing's changed and I think when people do put pressure on themselves, when you can't watch go anywhere without seeing adverts for gym and slimming club memberships, I kinda feel like we're setting ourselves up for failure. Must be millions of people who'll join a gym in January and stop going by March. We'll be ready, but we'll be ready in our own time on our own terms.

The second half of last year was a disaster really. Like I said in the last entry, the hit and run was just terrible timing. I was doing so well until then and I'm certain there's no way I'd be where I am now if that hadn't happened. I was feeling good. So I spent a few months feeling sorry for myself and eating and drinking too much crap. I was finally able to get a new bike and start cycling again about three months after the hit and run. I had a scan not long after that which showed ligament damage and that the shin bone in my right leg had actually shifted. I could tell all the time I was waiting that the shape was just wrong, but I got fobbed off a few times until I had the scan. I've had physiotherapy since then which ended about three weeks ago. My leg will never be 100% again but I'm about 95%, it took ages till I could straighten it almost the same as my left leg but this is as good as it'll be now. I still get the odd twinge if I jerk it or I've noticed more, when it's cold. But this is it now. And truth be told, I think I probably could've done more exercise on it sooner, but it's the head that was the problem then.

Now I'm just looking forward to spring. I like the kind of exercise you do without really thinking about it, long walks in beautiful scenery. Not so tempting right now, but give us a couple of months when we've got longer, warmer days and that'll be good. I don't think I need to make many drastic changes to get back on track. Not sure I'll even bother joining a gym, I'm cycling to work everyday which is a decent workout in itself. Maybe just subtle things. Obviously cutting back on portion size - not necessarily cutting anything out, just less of it or less often. Less drinking will be good. Got a couple of breaks to look forward to, so we'll see. For now, I'll count my calories until I can brave the scales.

It's been a really bad week, diet wise. Sunday night, on my way from home after a 14 hour shift I was in a hit and run. Completely their fault, I was cycling along my right of way. Just that the driver decided, as drivers so often do, that their couple of seconds was more important than my safety. I was on the main road passing small cross roads, driver just went straight through, against my right of way, sent me flying and didn't stop. Spent a couple of hours in A&E, had x-rays done and I'm lucky I didn't break anything. In a lot of pain though, four nights later. My knee has swollen a hell of a lot, gone down a bit now but still massive compared to how it should be. I can't seem to find a comfortable position with it. It feels stiff, I can't keep it in the same position too long. I must've twisted a bit in the crash because I'm getting a lot of pain from my right hip up.

I'm angry about the accident, all it'd have taken to prevent this is the smallest bit of courtesy. Instead, we've got another criminal on the roads and the police aren't interested at all in chasing it up. Obviously I was shaken when it happened and my bike is in bits, but I'm not so shaken by it that I won't be cycling again. As soon as I've got it repaired, and as soon as I'm able to, I'll be back on it but I don't know when that'll be. I've not been to work since, I can't exercise, I've been bored out of my mind at home so I've been eating crap to pass the time. I'm supposed to be going to Glastonbury next week. Well no, not supposed to be, I am going no matter what. Just concerned about how well I'll be able to get around the site. Obviously it was painful being thrown off my bike but it's the knock on effect that's most damaging. It's really taken the wind out of my sails.
