i live in brunswick east and work in collingwood, takes me 20-45 minutes to drive depending on traffic and 20-25 minutes to ride
yes the city traffic can be a bit scary but it's also kinda fun
Michelle if you are 5 minutes drive you could walk/run if riding is too scary?
Tan, how perfect is it that Su-Ling is on your side of town then!? haha
Chelle, where in G-town are you hon? Any good walking tracks you could take? More to the point, is there a shower at your office?
haha, yeah I was on a roll and just kept on going.
Today I upped my cals to 1450 as per MFP's recommendation based on my current height and weight. I'll do this for a week and a bit more exercise and see how I go. Will go back to 1200 next Monday though. Only thing with doing this is that it puts all your previous counts out. For example, yesterday I had about 28 cals to spare, but now it's telling me I have over 200. Silly thing.
Today has been shocking for food though
I haven't actually tried walking yet - on my maps app on my phone it estimates 45 minutes which is totally do-able, especially now the weather is getting nicer. I start at 8am so would need to get up an organised early! Also no, there is no shower at work but I guess as long as its not too warm a quick once over freshen-up in the bathroom would be enough?!
I live in Hamlyn Heights and work in the CBD so the roads are all pretty good and there are pedestrian crossings at all the lights.
Good luck with upping your cals, will be interesting to see how you go.
