Weight and Stuff Report – 20 January 2018

Weight: 220.5 pounds (15 stone 10.5 pounds, 100 kg)
Steps: 10,659

Would you believe it, down again to yet another new low for the year, a whisker away from being under 100kg, another whisker away from having dropped half a stone this year, and get this, a really quite significant 21.3 pounds (1 stone 7.3 pounds, 9.7 kg) lower than this time last year.

After the now usual early shopping, I took myself and the X-T2 out for the day. I wasn’t sure where to go, but when I got to the station, I could see it wouldn’t be long before the next train to York, so that’s where I went. Having started the day quite early, I was in York before 11am, giving me plenty of time for a wander. It was a bit dull and grey at first, so I decided to use one of the Fujifilm Acros film simulations for a bit of monochrome stuff, including this lovely bit of stonework on the Magistrates Court, taken at the short end of my 100-400mm lens:

As ir was a bit grey, I decided a visit to the Castle Museum might be a good plan. I bought a card that gets me in there, the Yorkshire Museum and the York Art Gallery for a year, which seemed like a good deal at £22. It also gets me a 10% discount in their cafes and shops, though I didn’t take advantage of that today.

While I was in the museum, the weather brightened up a bit, and I continued my Yalk Work, errr, York Walk, with a nice wander around the streets and a look at the Minster. I was thinking of going in, but the queue was a bit long, so I didn’t. Not long after that, I started to hear my legs telling me they’d done enough for one day, and I came home.
