3500 cals is a pound of fat is sometimes wrong and you need more exercise, sometimes eating strictly set calories fails and you need to hoof the rice etc. into you.
Famine eating or a bad diet low on fruit, veg and other "real" food always fails. But I don't see myself eating boring af bodybuilding food all year either... Blegh.
7% body fat.. wow that's very low :)
I guess runners and cycling physique? I wouldn't mind more muscle but after near a year of bulking...Well.. ;)
@Howard any suggestions for good 2.1 tyres that don't weigh a ton and can deal with wet loam? (Clay / sand mix)
If anything can...
It is a common mix on cavehill rather not faceplant if I can avoid it :)
It's ok immigrants from the EU are already leaving or not coming here, so NHS and other jobs will do themselves in future ;)
I started digging out all my paperwork to apply for a UK passport for wee man (I need to safeguard his interests)
Sometimes one wonders what you need to do to be appreciated by May and her fans.
Paint my car in union jack colours? ;)
Become a banker? ;)
Carry "the people have spoken!!!!!" flags? ;)
I know NI has some rather unique issues, and it's a post-conflict society so some of these will endure for another 2 generations.
Brexit is also extremely shit if NI doesn't get special status, and that would mean probably I'd end up leaving.
I'm not blind to the fact some issues are really much worse here, but if you follow the British Humanist page you realise issues with segregation are not unique to NI.
And on racism, UKIP got fuck all votes here (though the DUP is also a touch racist) and the Republican [as in, they want to rejoin ROI] parties actively resist it and get votes.
TL:DR I know you hate the place, but not everything is a 100% worse over here.
Depends what you want out of a place.
NI in many ways isn't bad if you work in some sectors, if you are lgbt you probably prefer Sweden though.
Netherlands you better like rules, bluntness and bicycles a lot. And that arsehole of a Wilder blegh he won't get in to form a government but I'm embarrassed it got that far :(
I like that in NI ppl aren't sticklers for rules and you can get train tickets in the train etc, but then sometimes I wish they'd be a little more organised...Like in the Netherlands :)
