Goal setting

We thought that we would start off with a few small goals and then work up to bigger goals. Its all well and good saying that Raffie wants to be 10 stone 6 and I want to be 13 stone 4 when in actual fact Raffie has 2 and a bit stone to go and I have 3 and a bit stone to move. That sounds a lot. A very lot so we were thinking of little goals first and then setting more distant goals in a month or so when we have our heads around Slimming World eating and getting some miles under our wheels.

First Goal 10% of current weight lost. We are aiming for a steady 1 – 2lbs a week.

Raffie – 19lbs off by Fireworks night

Kenn – 23lbs off by Fireworks night

Goal No. 2 is to cycle 1000 miles as soon as we can. We will keep our stats on this on our blog as we go.

Goal No. 3 is to save for new road bikes as quickly as we can. Raffie got new Giant Defy 2, Kenn now has second hand Sun Solo road bike.

Goal No.4 is to save for reasonable hybrid ‘winter’ bikes as quickly as we can but happy to use our old bikes this winter if necessary.

Goal No 5. is for Kenn to fit into size L mens shorts  Kenn bought Lidl Medium shorts 5/9/11

Goal No. 6 is for Raffie to fit into size M ladies shorts  Size Medium ladies shorts bought 5/9/11

Goal No. 7 is to cycle down Strathfarrar to the loch & back by the end of autumn. That’s 15 miles each way. Its all roadway, not tracks so its easier than cycling around the estate we are lucky enough to live on. August Bank Holiday 29th, there and back.

There are some goals to start with. I will update, or Raffie will, as we go on.



About RosieRosie

RosieRosie is a woman of a 'certain age' - whatever the hell that is supposed to mean, known. I feel about 26. I have no idea what I look like as some older woman keeps getting in the way when I look in the mirror. Separated from husband but dating a nice chap at the moment. I have a proper wanderlust and have finally moved - using the housing exchange system from - where I started in Inverness, down to Cornwall and back up to the Flatlands and Big Sky Country. It's taken since September 2011, when I left Inverness until May 2017 to get to somewhere that I really like. That's not too shoddy with a swap here and a swap there, saving up again for each move. Not ruling out going home to Norfolk if necessary. Time will tell. For now my mates are just a 90 minute or so, drive down the road. I love my bikes, I love my dog and I love guitars. They all keep my busy.
