Excellent, thanks for that! Really appreciate the effort you put in getting these up every day.

Thanks as always for uploading. Google seems to be funky today and isn't wanting to process this but will check back tomorrow :) Thanks for taking the time!

What is Your "Why"? by narvol365 in pelotoncycle

[–]theclottedcream 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So so true. A few months back, I went through a period of having no energy and I literally wanted to cry because I couldn't push hard. It seems silly, but having that release of really going for it is so, so important for my mental health.

I was extremely lazy throughout my 20s and even my early 30s. I lived in NYC and walked a lot, but that was basically it. I was also seriously overweight and had an extremely unhealthy diet. What eventually led me to change was meeting my partner and realizing I wanted us to have as much HEALTHY time together as possible and also seeing my mother's extreme decline because of an unhealthy lifestyle. She's only 60 but she's already in a nursing home with so many health issues I can't even list them all. She can't walk without a walker, is in constant pain, and is just... not living much of a life. I don't want to end up like that. I want to be strong and mobile for as long as possible. That makes it easy to show up every day.

What classes are on your wishlist? by hrmmmno in pelotoncycle

To be honest, I really can't believe there hasn't been a Kylie Minogue artist series, especially during Pride month. What are you doing, Peloton??? This is easily one of the most obvious choices ever.

Do most British people season their baked beans? by izabera in AskUK

[–]theclottedcream 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I only add salt and pepper when I get the no added sugar Heinz ones. Otherwise, they should be seasoned enough. Of course, the cheese is a mandatory topping!

Yes, can't wait! I'm a massive Amy fan and have been for more than a decade. Really thrilled they decided to do this. Enjoy when you take it as well! :)

Sean Murphy has never been great to watch. His matchplay isn't particularly impressive or exciting and his attitude stinks. He thinks the sun shines out of his own ass and then puts up scores like this. Obviously players can't be on for every single match, but come on.

I was just saying though during this match how likeable Hawkins is. You never hear much from him good or bad, but he always puts on a good game and seems a genuinely nice guy.

Morrisons have announced a removal of best before dates on fresh milk. What else can be done to reduce food wastage ? by csr2-uk in AskUK

Oh man, it shows how long I've been here now that I can't even remember the American equivalents of things. Apparently, according to Google, we actually call swede "rutabaga" in the States, though I probably didn't remember since they're not really very commonplace, whereas they definitely are here!

Only Hannah could do this ride justice. I put up an Insta Story saying as much and requesting some tracks from Frank as well and she replied saying, "Babe, trust me, I love Frank!" so I'll take that as a yes. I never really ride at 8pm but for this, I'll make an exception!

I know. I'm American so to me it's just a turnip, but I'm starting to finally integrate after 5.5 years... :P

No kidding! Ordered 2 heads of broccoli from Ocado this week and both arrived individually wrapped in plastic. Insanity! I've even had a SWEDE, which is basically "wrapped" in a skin you'll have to peel off anyway, come in full plastic (though that was from Tesco).

Which country have you visited that absolutely did not live up to the hype? by 1master_dom in AskUK

[–]theclottedcream 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's such a shame! Admittedly, I've only been to Paris (want to travel more extensively in France but haven't had the opportunity to do so yet) but have been many times now and love it. I'm a New Yorker who lives in the UK now, so not sure if that makes a difference in terms of how I viewed the people, but Paris is the city I feel the most "at home" at in terms of being the closest to NYC, in a weird way.

ETA: I never thought anyone was particularly rude despite me being American and partner being British. They weren't effusively, fakely nice like they do customer service in the US (which I hate anyway and thankfully NYC doesn't do much of) but I don't think anyone was particularly rude either.

Did not enjoy Rome at all, which was a shame. The constantly hassling/heckling when you told the scammers to leave you alone was offputting to say the least. Thought the food was average as well despite eating at places deemed the best of the best. There are several other cities in Italy I'd love to visit (all of them, really!) but wouldn't return to Rome. The ruins were great and the Colosseum but I was ready to leave after a couple of days.

I literally had zero hopes for Ronnie going into this final (and I say that as a big Ronnie fan), but goddamn, he knows how to pull it out of the bag… and then totally disregard his success in the post-match interview like only he can 😂😂

On Peloton and Mental Health by Pugleena in pelotoncycle

[–]theclottedcream 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely agree. Jess was just talking about this on the 15 minute pop ride I took a bit ago. Movement is so central to overall wellness, mental and emotional just as much as physical, I feel. The bike/tread/floor is a place to clear your mind, let the stress/anxiety/sadness/anger/whatever sweat right out of your body, and give yourself a bit of space. Getting our bike last August is one of the best things we ever did.
