Weight and Stuff Report – 7 October 2017

Weight: 231.9 pounds (16 stone 7.9 pounds, 105.2 kg)
Steps: 15,255

Down again today, which might have something to do with some epic walking in the annual photo walk thingy, which started in Leazes Park, headed through Newcastle to the High Level Bridge, back over the Tyne Bridge, then a long route to the Quayside, going down at least 6,000 steps, over the Millennium Bridge, past the Sage, back over the Swing Bridge and along the Quayside before ending in a pub, where I had a refreshing fruit drink[1].

Acts of photography were committed, and I’ll start with this one of a modern stained glass window in St Nicholas Cathedral
