I don’t think I’ve posted anything on the blog since I moved to London two and a half months ago, other than the random photo from Instagram. Allan has been posting as often as he could though, so kudos to him.
So what have I been up to lately? Well, I had a stint at a project south of London which meant I was away from London 4 nights a week. That also messed up my workout schedule and the fact that I was staying at a hotel and eating out most of the week meant my food choices were not the best ones. As a result, I’ve put on weight, quite a bit of weight surprisingly, considering it’s only been 2.5 months. Oh well, sometimes I envy Allan’s metabolism. No, correct that. I always envy his metabolism.
On a happier note, whatever weekend time I had in London was spent quite productively (aka quite busy) — chores, quality time with the husband, the occasional workout and the almost weekly indoor climbing. Yup. I’ve been climbing walls on my spare time. I haven’t been to Westminster and St. Paul’s (inside them I mean) but I’ve been climbing some of the walls at Castle Climbing Centre — I guess that’s what “turning local” is about…?
I am still plagued by fear of heights and fear of, well, falling but I think I am making progress. I’ve moved from “rainbow” climbing (using any color hold with the goal of just reaching the top) to almost grade 5 routes! No point explaining that here in the blog….it will just sound easier than it really is. Or maybe I’ll make it sound harder than it really is.
So how do I end my first post after not posting for a while? With a lurvly photo of me just as I was about to go up a ‘5’ wall. Please excuse the extra weight. I’m working on losing most of it 🙂
