Friday started well…Truth be told the whole week was good, not missing the canal once, despite having around 7 damn punctures since starting the Canal Commute (and 2 last week), I ordered some Marathon Plus MTB Tyres and a new pump , ensuring that I will do EVERYTHING I can to keep doing the 22 mile per day route over the winter.
However the week went from pretty damn good to a NIGHTMARE by Friday afternoon……I felt run down in the afternoon and by about 3pm I was doubled over in AGONY …by around 4pm (I think) an Ambulance had been called, I attempted to refuse and said I would cycle home….I’m an idiot sometimes…(I was wearing My Quitting Lasts Forever Shirt Though)… I was loaded into an ambulance and filled full of morphine.
The Doctor examined me and said …..and here is the best bit EVER……
“You have a lot of lose skin sir, did you used to be very heavy ?”
Now on the face of it, not a great thing for someone to say to you…BUT… Normally the first thing any Doctor says to me is “You are too FAT, Lose Weight” so for not a single one of them to say that and only mention my lose skin…well that’s a BONUS !
When I was leaving hospital I didn’t have a shirt/coat/jumper….So I was forced to borrow a LARGE Coat….Never in a million years did I expect it to fit…..
Turns out I have/Had Kidney stones….I am feeling MUCH better today, seems I passed them when I did a sample ….HURRAH…So with that in mind I needed to get my bike today, my kind colleagues ensured that it was inside the office (After me refusing help and then saying sort my bike out or I aint going nowhere)….I decided to use the life (not something I normally do but was tired) the lift then broke down in-between floors…In a building with 3 people in it…SIGH…So then I got my ike, my cycling shoes and I was all set…To put it in my car..when I couldn’t then get out of the building…LOL..
So the stones seem to have gone, my bike is home and ready for Monday, I have AGAIN been lucky that it wasn’t anything major that could have derailed my weight loss…Time for a good rest and then on Monday its time to beat the living crap out of myself again……
