Kayaking and Weight Goals
Exercise 21st of July 2019
Today was a gorgeous day spent half paddling down and then up the river Medway. My fiancée doesn't seem to like exercise such as running or going to the gym but she does relish any excuse to climb a mountain or explore a river. This is good because I'm trying to do at least some exercise on the weekends and it turned out to be a wonderful time. Last weekend we ended up cycling somewhere but today we invited some friends and had a small BBQ at the half way point before heading back to drop off our kayaks. What was really nice is that they were both from Poland, so it was also lovely to hear it being spoken which really helps my motivation to carry on learning the language. I already explained in my first blog post that I've just recently joined a gym and this has given me a huge amount of motivation to tackle the problem of my weight. The problem is that I just haven't taken it seriously enough for a number of years.
There are three months until my wedding and, like any ordinary functioning member of society with a healthy ego, I don't want to look fat. About a month ago, I found myself in Poland attending the wedding of my future sister in law. The wedding itself was small but beautiful but the photos I saw after the fact didn't paint me in a very flattering light, the tipsy expressions and demeanor aside. Five minutes ago I weighted myself, the results are in and it's kind of tragic. I weigh 98.5kg.
