I never thought “coming out” about my eating disorder and what I eat would have had such a positive affect on me.
You see, when I have “come out” in the past, I then retreat back into my shell and it gets worse, but today I woke up feeling chuffed at what I eat yesterday, at the fact I did it and the fact I wanted to do something else.
This afternoon after washing the Peugeot I went for a ride, it was cold, windy, and wet but I felt good about myself so I put my full Shack Kit on (with arm warmers) and set out on the “Mottram Moor Climb”
and here I am at the top
On the way to taking this picture the words of Colin rung in my ears “is it really so good to be at constant war with yourself” the climb resulted in me SMASHING my old PB of 8 Mins and 22, Its now an AMAZING 5 Mins and 21 Seconds !!!!!!!!!
Oh and to make it even better , I was on the STEEL Peugeot Single Speed !!!!!!!!
I set off with the normal ULTRA intensity that I ride with, but this time it was different. While I can’t claim there was inner piece, I think its safe to say there is a cease fire and for once the warring factions were working together like a V8 to make me fly up that hill. There is a long way to go for me, but thank you, each and every single one of you, I never expected the reaction either you gave me or that I gave myself but so far its all been for the better. I have a lot of your comments to reply to, I will, just give me time to get to all of them 🙂
