Tomorrow. That's how long until my op. it's not a major thing but it's kind of focussing my mind. There's a ton of stuff I want to sort out beforehand. I started writing out a list but hey it just went on for ever almost. Plus was all over ... Read more
A roller coaster ride.

That's what the last few months have been. Lose a bit, gain a bit, gain a bit, lose a bit. Except the last few weeks, the 'bits' I've gained, have been bigger than the 'bits' I've lost. As a consequence, when I weighed myself last Monday, I w... Read more

Will understand. My kitten isn't a kitten any more. Actually, she isn't really mine either. She belongs to my daughter and her b/f. But she lives here. And I buy her food and look after her. So I kind of figure she's mine. Anyway, w... Read more

I am getting a mite frustrated. A tad irritable you might say. Or even ever so slightly bamboozled. For almost four months now I've been basically plateauing. And my last three weekly weigh ins have been ridiculous. 1] gained 4lb 2] ... Read more

Well, I would if I'd paid me to arrange my boot camp. Suffice to say, I had overlooked certain things such as having to go 'electioneering' for the local County Council elections. Plus sadly, a funeral. So, my boot camp didn't really happen t... Read more
Spring boot camp - planning
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      4 comments

Well come on, be fair, I couldn't just 'dive in' and get on with my boot camp. You have to plan things properly. Which involves a lot of 'thinking' and er, munching seemingly. Odd how planning for a 'boot camp' seems to involve far more eating... Read more

That's what April 1st is in the UK. A quaint old tradition that as a family, we didn't indulge in so much today due to us all being somewhat dispersed elsewhere. Thanks to the hideous government 'reforms' coming into force today and over the n... Read more

It's my birthday on the 11th April. At the beginning of the year, I set myself a target to reach 119lb by 8th April. To be honest, it seemed a bit of a soft target as I was around 126lbs. 7lb in 3 months didn't seem that hard. But as I... Read more

I intended to write about Mothering Sunday today [which was celebrated yesterday here in the UK]. However it will have to wait because I am incensed by the Chris Huhne/Vicky Price business. Yes, I know it's a UK thing - apologies to our Ameri... Read more

I'm not sure, but I think that is what is happening. Examine the evidence; 1) Yesterday, and again today, I cooked a small amount of food. Placed it on a plate. Introduced small bites into my mouth. Chewed. Swallowed. Repeated. Drank... Read more

In is out, backward is forward, and high is low. Or so it seems looking at 2013 so far. To recap, by 17th December, I'd got past the point where I fell off the spark wagon in 2009 [and naturally put all the weight I'd lost back on]. Hurrah fo... Read more
Darwin Day
Saturday, February 16, 2013      0 comments

The Darwin Day lecture on Monday was fun. Not perfect but very interesting. Daughter bought the latest [signed] Brian Cox book. Me, being more into politics, I bought a copy of Owen Jones 'Chavs The Demonization of The Working Class'. I mus... Read more

Here I am, turning up like a bad penny once again. Things just seem so hectic now. I'm getting more and more involved in local community stuff. Of course, the more one gets involved, the more people one meets, and the more one gets asked to h... Read more
