Fitness News #16
Hi Guys and Gals,
How's Easter going?
One of the challenges of Easter is all those fattening Easter Eggs you are given, but there's a solution, put them in a bag and give them to me, I'll make sure they are disposed of carefully J
Some of you may of heard my chocolate joke "you can get your daily protein requirements from 14 boxes of chocolate". Well, its actually true. While what is in chocolate varies, an example is;
Aero Bubbles Easter Egg, Milk Chocolate, Nestle
Calories in 100g of Aero Easter Egg
Calories 538 cals
However what you get from chocolate depends very much on which chocolate you eat. The range of nutrition varies considerably;
Dietary fibers 3-35%
Calories per 100g 200-550
And then they add sugar….
So does this mean we shouldn't eat chocolate? No its not about denying what you love, its about understanding the beast and acting accordingly. Taking control is about taking a number of simple steps;

My club has an adventure ride every so often and we had one on Friday. Riding up to Akuna Bay, we had a large group of cyclist and decided to split into 2 groups, a faster group and a slower group. The weather was absolutely stunning, not hot, not cold, not windy. Topped it off with breakfast at Narrabeen Lakes before riding back to Marrickville
Conversely on Sunday morning, I had my bike setup for Time Trailing and headed for Centennial Park and it was a bad decision. Once in Centennial the heavens opened up and most of us just had summer gear on and we froze. On the way home we were shivering, teeth were chattering. Taking my shoes off, I couldn't feel my feet, it was straight into the shower, followed by a bath. By the time I got out of it, I had 15 minutes to get ready and ride up to Riverwood for the RPM class, this time with a tonne of winter clothing on.
Tomorrow is the Sunday training ride to Waterfall, I think I'll give it a miss…
