A Successful First Skirmish!

I’m pleased to report that since joining David Lloyd a week ago, I have used their fitness suite four times!  I can’t believe I’m actually admitting this, but I really enjoyed it!  I even went before a night shift, a first for me – not the night shift, the gym!  I was going great guns, then it came to an abrupt end for a few days.  I fell victim to a tummy bug and was dashing to the loo every couple of hours or so; it was so bad that I had to have time off work.  However, as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining and I have already lost 3 kilos!  I would rather have been pounding the treadmill though, as I have felt completely washed out!

I have had good news from OTR in the last few days.  Their Communications & Media officer, Liam McKinnon, has been in touch with Tom Morris of the Bristol Post with regard to them printing a press release about me and my fundraising efforts for OTR.  He contacted me a couple of days ago and we are meeting up at 1.00 pm on Friday for a chat!  Liam is also going to send the press release to other Bristol outlets as well as trying to get a radio interview.  I am really excited about this because I want as much publicity as possible as, the more I can get, hopefully the more money I can raise!

I don’t really have much more to report as, for obvious reasons, I have been confined to the house!  I really need this to be cleared up as soon as possible because, if you read my last blog, you will know that I am taking part in Adrenaline Rush at Blaise Castle on this coming Saturday!  Keep everything crossed for me please!!

    Sorry to hear that you are not well Rob. Not a good way to lose weight.
