Back to the Future

October 21st 2015 was Back to the Future day. The date that Marty and Doc Brown went to in the 'future' in the 1989 film 'Back to the Future 2'. The media - both main steam and social, made a huge thing of it here. Back to the Future 2 was re... Read more

5 or 6 weeks now I've been stuck at this half way hump. And even before that, progress had slowed to a snail's pace. If I'm honest, yes I was very disappointed when I weighed in Monday that there was still no movement on the scales. No way am... Read more

Weigh in day today. Still stuck on the 'halfway hump'. No movement. Time to give up eh? Not a chance. Do you know the saying 'If the Mountain won't come to Mohammed"? Well this Sparker won't give in to the scales - so the scales will have ... Read more

In keeping with the general rebooting, zig zagging, and moving, moving, moving, to try and get over this halfway hump, I had a soup day today. I have a selection of home made soups in my freezer and it so happens they are/'were all vegetarian. ... Read more

At the beginning of this week, I was desperately going through piles of paperwork looking for a cheque that was for a rather large amount of money. Could I find it - of course not. I faced two options - asking for a replacement cheque, or actua... Read more

Or Calorie Cycling as it's sometimes called. I came across this concept quite a long time ago but have never tried it. Basically the idea is instead of eating roughly the same amount of calories every day, you have some days in the week when yo... Read more

Two for the price of one today - assuming I post this in time. Wrote last night's blog and then forgot to post it. Der! Weigh in today and I'd successfully disposed of the unwanted additional pound. Now back to where I was 3/4 weeks ago.... Read more

'Life is something that happens while you're busy making other plans' - so the saying goes. I can absolutely relate to that. My 'restart' plan didn't quite go as expected. Woke up this morning and I wasn't hungry so didn't have cereal. Late ... Read more

Can't sleep. My legs won't stay still. Those of you who have experienced 'restless leg syndrome' will know exactly what I mean. Those of you who haven't, and are tempted to suggest exercise to relieve it - hush your noise, you know not what y... Read more
