No Strictly this year

Yeah, but he's just awful and slightly terrifying!! Hope he's voted out this week because I thought he was the worst of the lot.

The other frightening thing is at what age does one become a elderly lady with a penchant for serial killer waxwork model lookalikes??????????

No Strictly this year

I LOVE strictly, always have, but had to previously watch on fast forward because I couldn't stand Bruce - thank god he's gone!!

Down to the dancing - Katie Derham did a decent job, pleased for Anton that he's not stuck with the oldest this time, although that said, I'm not sure he'll make it through to the final as don't think Katie is good enough to win.

The only one I can't stand this year is Daniel O'Donnell.  He's just odd - that waxy, expressionless face and the vague, creepy serial killer voice.....grim.  Hope he goes out first.  I do however think  it's hilarious that they put him with Kristina, if he can't encourage her to keep her drawers on then no-one can!!!!!!!  

It's still early days, but I think for the win I'll be backing Georgia.

Biggest Triathlon Revelation?

Learning how to swim properly.  My brother is a member of a tri club and he gave me some advice on my swim technique - has helped massively and am faster and more confident in the water now.

Agree with Pudge - altho can only comment on aldi as not tried Lidl (not one near me).  So far have discovered their cycling stuff which is really good at a fraction of the price.

Anyones else judged for what they eat at work?

Ever thought about telling them to mind their own business?  Or, you could do the same to them but be really sarcastic with it - "oh, is that your 3rd chocolate bar of the day, well, I suppose you'll burn it off at your spin class/run/swim etc etc tonight"!!

Hope you've managed to have a look, when I booked ours (in July) availability was already pretty limited.

Does sound like a hernia - maybe get a second opinion and ask for an ultrasound scan.

Trisuit advice for a big bird

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 17:00

Like you BCB, I am embarking on my first tri this year - it's a super sprint, so not a massive one, but more to see whether I can do it and if I like it.

As you have found, sportswear manufacturers obviously think larger ladies don't do sport and if you are over a size 16, you MUST be crazy to be doing anything sporty!!!!!!! (sorry, rant over!!).

So, what to wear??  Well, for me (and I do have body confidence issues, so there's NO WAY I am wearing a trisuit) I am going to wear my cycling shorts, a sports bra and a cheap mens vest top that I got from decathlon for about £3.  It's lightweight and comfortable and will dry quickly.  I tried it all out on Sunday at my lake swim session and to be honest, under my wetsuit it was totally fine.  Even the padding in the shorts wasn't too bad after a swim, so think it'll be ok on the day, especially given the distances I'm covering are pretty small.

Good luck with your hunt for a suitable outfit and very best of luck with your triathlon.
