Catch up…

What a week last week was… The Spence family of Hillsborough who belong to our Church lost three of its members (Nevin, Noel and Graham seen below) in a farming accident and it knocked us all for six.  To be honest it has made me re-think my
attitude to a lot of things but especially the importance of community.  My support, thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family.
Then there is work. 
It would be inappropriate of me to go into detail but let us just say it
is extremely challenging and sleep is in short supply.  The issue dominates my thinking and significantly
raises my anxiety levels.  It’s very
difficult to bring focus to any thing and diet and exercise seem to be harder
than usual to focus on.
On a much brighter note a close personal friend (Nigel Webb seen above) organised
a cycling trip and what a boost in morale I found it to be.  He took a day of work and managed to get the
loan of a friend’s caravan for two nights. 
We travelled up on Thursday night and on Friday cycled down the Antrim
coast road, one of Ulster’s
most famous stretches of tarmac.  It was
bliss, however I do really need to remember that because I’m participating in a
cycling challenge doesn’t mean that I need to eat for 4 people the days before,
during and after!!
I’ve been treading water for the past few
weeks on the weight loss front.  I’ve trained hard and my fitness
has improved but weight loss is all but at a stand still.  I’m thinking I need to revisit my goals and commitment.  I’ll be writing more about that shortly.
Before I go but my friends son got his bike stolen from
outside his Church whilst he was at worship would you believe…  If you see this bike for sale or abandoned somewhere
in East Belfast
let me know!
