A cycle ride today

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador

I went on a bike ride today into my City Centre to get some more spelt flour, just ensuring I don't run out. I cycled 23.5 miles in the beautiful sunshine.

Hope you've all had a good day.

Stay safe and well all.

As always wow. Pleased you have your flour, I can remember you posting the alternatives weren't good for you. Lovely photos again.

Thank you. I'm glad I got more flour but will leave it now for a couple of weeks as I've got some extra bags now, also the suppliers have increased the price by Β£1 a bah, that's quite a hike in the price.

Thank you, it's been a glorious day.πŸ˜ŠπŸŒˆπŸš΄β€β™€οΈ

I've found some prices have increased too. Β£1 a bag is a bit steep!

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to Ghounds

It really is and there's no need, the food industry has been making a killing.

It’s actually illegal to increase the price because of covid. They should be reported for that. My local fruit and veg shop did the same, I’ll stick to frozen until it drops again.

I didn't realise that so thank you for letting me know, I appreciate it.

I don't blame you, I'd do exactly the same.

Things are a lot better now aren't they food wise?

It was dreadful back in March having to fight for food when there was no need!

in reply to catgirl1976

They are better than they were, still problems with some baking goods though. I will leave the flour for now as I have extra in my cupboard and the suppliers increased the price by Β£1 a bag which is ridiculous.

The panic buying in March was unprecedented.

One afternoon I had donated to the local foodbank in sainsburys and it was 2pm and I was disgusted when I saw the empty shelves in there!

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to catgirl1976

Yes my local Tesco have a box for the food bank which I put stuff in. The worst are the baking shelves and sometimes dairy (I buy milk and butter for my hubby).

I have found eggs had been a problem but that's a lot better now.

One of my friends had ended up getting caught out at the pharmacy after she had got her period and all the pain relievers were out and so were the pads and tampons so she had to have used a dishcloth until she could get some supplies and had said to me how she had cried as well in sheer frustration same as I had and so had my other friends due to having felt helpless as there wasn't a thing we could have done about it!

We bake a cake once every now and again which is something to do and a new interest for us.

crazyfitness

in reply to catgirl1976

There were only 2 boxes of organic eggs last week.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, people did the same with baby nappies. I know women that use the cup and get on with it really well and good for the environment. Just a thought.

I've always baked but mainly for hubby some things for me but not much, bread every week though, spelt sourdough.

They had bought up all the calpol as well which is a staple when you have young children in residence!

It was the same with the formula milks as well as the disposable nappies all out!

Another of our friends who has just had a baby was glad that she was breastfeeding when that was going on and was using the old fashioned terry nappies where you put them in the washing machine and they last for ages and are better for the environment.

We had said about seeing about a mooncup and how they save money over time as well as being better for the environment.

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to catgirl1976

Yes they bought everything without a thought for anyone else.

I used Terry nappies and that's all we should be able to get, disposables are shocking for the environment.

Yes the Mooncup is very good, I've not heard any negativity about it. I use washable panty liners and they are good.

At least there is always some starter on the window sill waiting to make bread.

in reply to daveh121

Oh most definitely, I've always got a starter and I have quite a few bags of flour now - result :)

Glad you got your flour! In our pub which has now turned into a shop a lady picked up GF flour and the man said unless you’re GF can you put it back for someone who is and she did πŸ‘ I thought of you and was pleased he said it 😊

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to Agoodenough

That was really good Ali, well done to the man saying that. If people hadn't of panic bought everything in the beginning, including specialist ingredients then there would have been plenty for all.

The suppliers that the shop got the flour from has hike the price by Β£1 a bag, think I'll let Dove's Farm know as I don't think they'd be happy about that.

My daughter is GF and I am finding it impossible to get flour. Agree that it's the baked goods that appear to be the issue. We're all in training for GBBO I think. crazyfitness do you have a tried and tested spelt flour recipe. My husband came back with it yesterday. As you said you liked it figured it was worth an ask rather than trial and error with websites :-)

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to Loobylou72

I feel for your daughter. My friend is a Coeliac and fortunately she seems to be doing fine for flour, have you thought about Holland and Barrett? I'm hoping you are in the UK. I've seen plenty of it in our local health food shop which is called Rickard Lanes so maybe you could look in a local health food shop if you have one. I totally agree, there seem to be a lot of bakers out there now, I think they've stock piled and it annoys me when they buy specialist flour when those like your daughter have no option but to use the special flours.

The recipe I use is from the Dove's Farm website (they've also been selling a GF hamper on there so you may be able to get something for your daughter). The link is:

dovesfarm.co.uk/recipes/sou...

That's the one I'm making at present although I've made a white starter and not a wholemeal one as I couldn't get wholemeal spelt anywhere for quite a few weeks but I have some now. Here's the wholemeal recipe:

dovesfarm.co.uk/recipes/who...

I've had very good success with the Dove's Farm recipes.

Best of luck.

No I bet they wouldnt be pleased and that's quite a price hike. I think you should.

in reply to mattymoo33

Oh no, not good, that's my fear when I go out sometimes as some of the roads are so bad it's inevitable that bike tyres get punctures.

I'm finding the roads are a lot busier now, people seem to go out now because they can, I don't blame them but I expect some of them just want to drive.

Fabulous! πŸ˜„

Well I have overdone the exercise (yoga and cycling) and am now incapacitated. At least for this week! My hips got so painful and I couldn't even walk by this morning. I thought I was getting stiff over the weekend, so did more yoga and biking yesterday but apparently I have made matters worse. Silly me!

As soon as I am better, I have the thingy for my bike and I will make some progress. In the meantime I really enjoy watching your progress :)

In the meantime I hope the pain eases very soon.

You are welcome.

I'm so sorry it's affected you like it has. Personally it sounds to me like you need to contact your GP and see if you can be referred for physio. Failing that, have you looked online and researched your pain? I did this for my shoulder, followed the exercises recommended and it worked really well.

Take care and hope you are out of pain soon.

Thank you for your kind words. I have rung my osteopath. She thinks it's a strained adductor and possibly sacroiliac involvement. Fortunately she is working so I will be able to see her as soon as.

Looking online I think she may be right. She says just because there are online yoga classes every single morning, I don't have to do them!! (and shouldn't as I am hyper mobile).

Thank you Alicia xx

You are welcome and I'm so pleased you rang your Ostopath. Well that sounds painful so I can fully understand you can't do much at the moment. Sounds to me like you'll be doing some physio on that.

You sound a bit like me and feel like you should be doing exercises all the time and even though we enjoy them we must have some time to relax, think I need to listen to myself as well LOL. I can understand why you shouldn't be doing them.

Take care and look after yourself.

How funny you should feel the same way about exercise! πŸ˜ƒ.

I have a limited capacity, but as much as I tell myself that, I forget. When I was doing yoga every morning, it would get to the afternoon and I would say to myself 'What am I going to do now, I haven't done any exercise for hours!'

I'm new to group. Can't figure out what others may say to me. Anyways had a blessing yesterday. Mail order pharmacy wanted $195 for prescription. I need. Drug was tier 4. Dr tried to get reduced to tier 2. Only expected tier 3. So happy and greatful as I don't have $195. Now cost for prescription is zero $'s. Blessing in disguise.

Here in England we are so fortunate to have the NHS which is an amazing service, can't fault it.

I'm so happy for you. I live where there is dirt, dirt and more dirt. No place to ride a bike, walk my dog. I bought a slim exercise bike that I have to figure out how to assemble. Not going to gym. They aren't open in county yet anyway. I'd rather use bike inside my home and b able to take shower/bath than @ gym. Used to walk in park in front of πŸš” station. They found woman on bench deceased 4 three day's. Sorry to rain on your parade. I really am genuinely happy 4 you.

Thank you but I feel so for you that there is nowhere for you to go. I'm glad you have an exercise bike and hope that you figure out how to assemble it, maybe in front of the TV so you can watch say a programme on the country and you can look at the countryside whilst cycling. As far as I'm aware you can also purchase programmes where it can replicate you cycling along a route.

How awful and for the poor person that found the women. You are not raining on my parade at all, I truly feel for you.

Take care xx

Thank you Sheila, it was a lovely ride again. I'll be relying on my bike a bit more for a few days as an old injury on my foot has resurfaced, serves me right for jogging on Sunday at quite a pace for me. It's definitely going to be power walking and cycling from now on.

When you're able to get to the countryside enjoy.

Sounds like you're like our granddaughter and have had a letter to self isolate for the 12 weeks. That's an excellent ideal to have the pedals, they are really good aren't they and they don't take up much space either. Sounds like you have all round exercises so that's very good.

Take care, stay safe and keep well.

Thank you and I do love the countryside, so glad I've never moved away and can't believe last year I had itchy feet to move. The only other places that I really do enjoy are Derbyshire and the Lake District both in England.

Yes I do love my spelt bread, especially if there's any peanut butter involved. ;)

I am looking at electric bikes. The prices have dropped quite a bit lately and might take the pressure off aching hips a bit.

That's a very good idea, I've seen a few around. They are ideal for going uphill and on the flat as you can merrily poodle along. I didn't realise the prices have dropped, that must be to do with the current situation so now's your time to buy I'd say. Sorry you have aching hips though.

in reply to MadBunny

I'm sorry you can't cycle anymore but what an excellent idea though to use it in the garden, that would make it far more interesting as you can listen to the birds as well.

I cannot get the spelt in the supermarkets but can get it in our local health food shop, it's not a chain store and in our local farm shop, I've not seen it in my local Tesco store since just before lockdown so it's been a long time. Always good to keep a spare in stock, I have spare spelt now so I'm not going to run out.

Thank you, I love taking the photos and it's also a record for me of my ride/walk.

Stay safe and well.

Alicia :)

Not only can I hear the birds but Im constantly pestered for food by the sparrows.They are quite fearless.Im not comaining though :its great to have them.We've had several pairs nesting in our terrace.Stay safe and well yourself.

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to MadBunny

Oh I love it when the birds are like that, we've had lots in the garden picking up the bread but then the pigeons appear and I get rid of them by clapping my hand. How lovely to have them nesting. :)

We've had nests for as long as I can remember.Its odd-although we have fatballs and seed the sparrows still seem to prefer the bread!I just wish they were confident enough to take food from my hand.Unfortunately we get pigeons too. The robins and blackbirds pick up any bits of fatball that fall on the ground.

We also get a lot of goldfinches on the front garden feeders.

Enjoying all these birds helps to make shielding more bearable.

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to MadBunny

That's so lovely as they haven't nested in our garden yet. We have fatballs as well but they prefer the bread. Wouldn't it be lovely if they were that tame but they don't seem to be. I do not like pigeons, they have to eat I know but they scare the little birds away. The robins and blackbirds do tend to pick everything off the ground.

We also get Goldfinches and also some Greenfinches.

I totally agree, birds are so relaxing to watch and listen to.

I havent seen any greenfinches for a very long time. We get a couple of chaffinches and plenty of blue tits and great tits. And one coal tit.I know what you mean about the pigeons. Thankfully we dont get many.

crazyfitness

in reply to MadBunny

We used to get loads of them but more Goldfinches.

Thank you Sara, I do like to take photos along the way.😊🌈

youre welcome. I have to be deceptive when I want to go for a bike ride & can only cycle down the road & back because of my ILD & even thats too taxing.

Im on medication for ILD so my immune system is low (side effects) & my mum has an annoying habit of waiting til the weather is warm then phoning me to make sure Im in around the lunchtime hours in other words to make sure I havent left the house- checking up on me but when the weather is bad I dont hear a thing (because she knows I wont leave the house)

crazyfitness

I'm really sorry Sara, it's hard when you can't do what you enjoy.

Oh how annoying for your mum to do that, parents can be difficult. My mother in law is a real pain and that's an understatement.

before my ILD when the weather was warm I used to be out on my bike for about 2 hours

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador
in reply to Sara_2611

I really feel for you either ILD (I've just looked it up on the internet) and can see why you struggle. You can make your own mind up though and don't need your mother interfering.

Oh yes I know that -when the rule about no unneccessary journeys allowed were in place -I'd gone down the road & back on my bike & its a really good job I'd had loads of time to put it away in the same place -I then had a long conversation with my neighbour -I turned round & there was mum checking up on me (she claimed it was to see if I was ok because she tried to phone me & I wasnt there) - of course it was to check to make sure i hadnt gone out.

I had to remind her that it was an unnecessary journey & therefore was flouting the rules & effectively I could call the police & if she didnt go home I was going to call them

The weather's poor today in Manchester & ive not heard a thing from her at lunchtime (but thats because she knows I wont be going for a bike ride) Had it been warm like the other day Id have been going

crazyfitness

in reply to Sara_2611

Oh my goodness, your mum really is on your back when the weather is nice, I really feel for you as you can't relax at all. It's up to you where and when you go out and I'm pretty sure you are old enough to make your own mind up.

It was an unnecessary journey, there was no need whatsoever to come checking up on you.

Yes I've heard the more North you go in the UK the weather isn't so good. No doubt when the sun comes back for you, which I hope it does soon, you will be getting phone calls from your mum, how frustrating.

It's sunny here in Devon but very windy and not warm.

Take care and stay safe.

Oh Im definitely old enough to make my own decisions -Im over 18 . I know its up to me -Now the rules have changed Its perfectly allowed for her to come should it happen again - as you are allowed to see 1 parent per person & outside only.

Well done to you, I admire your courage with your illness.πŸ‘πŸŒˆπŸŒž

I went at lunchtime .The only reason mum didnt ring me was because when she dropped the papers off this morning was because she told me she emailed me for a zoom meeting at 4pm -

Before this bloody illness I used to go for at least 2 hours . One time I went to visit a mate who lives a few doors down from my ex & even though I kept my head down & was wearing my sunglasses -he looked up & frowned -I thought he d recognised me THANK GOD HE DIDNT !!!! otherwise I'd ve been in trouble

crazyfitness

in reply to Sara_2611

She shouldn't be trying to control you, if I tried that with my adult daughters they'd soon tell me what to do and rightly so. My mother in law, whom I really don't like, she's 90 now, used to try and control her son when we first got married. What is it with these women!

I'm so sorry for your illness and really feel for you as I know how I'd feel if I was restricted. Well done for getting on your bike, that's brilliant.

I'm so glad your ex didn't realise it was you - phew.

Stay safe and take care.

Thank you, it makes you feel so good doesn't it. I'm sorry you are having a flare up and hope that you are better very soon so you can get back out there. The weather is beautiful here again today.

Stay safe and hope you are better very soon.

I do pray very soon as well. The weather here is cloudy and very rainy which is still good for my garden which I'm so blessed to have. May you continue to enjoy the outdoors. 😊🌹
