Day 126 - Inexplicable
Monday, July 27, 2020      8 comments

2 oz lost this week.  Which like last week's gain of 4 oz is kind of negligible.  But also inexplicable.  I had more calories this week plus less walking and exercising.  Doesn't make sense.  I simply don't get it.  I shall keep trying but it is... Read more
Day 125 - Leave me alone
Sunday, July 26, 2020      5 comments

The Ex Worker [?] Friend emailed me last night requesting 'a slight favour'.  Gyms in England are re-opening but he'd left his gym entrance electronic fob on a bunch of keys here seemingly.  Could I possibly send it to him?  A 'please' would hav... Read more
Day 124 - Tomato Envy
Saturday, July 25, 2020      6 comments

Another good long chat with daughter on the 'phone today.  She was very fed up because SIL had unloaded the dishwasher on to the work surface and left it.  Including an old wok. Big deal you may say.  Except it's a brand new hideously expensive ... Read more
Day 123 - My mother's daughter
Friday, July 24, 2020      6 comments

The first time I ever swore in front of one of my parents I went big time.  They both got it and I didn't pussyfoot around with a damn or a ruddy.  I was about 14 at the time.  Mum worked full time, as did my sister by then, and dad did shift wo... Read more
Day 122 - In Training [be warned very possibly TMI]
Thursday, July 23, 2020      4 comments

Those of you who have 'known' me for some time, will perhaps have noticed that when I'm purchasing or trying something new, I like to research into it.  If particular claims are being made, I like to see as much reliable evidence as possible.  Y... Read more
Day 121 - Fat feet
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      5 comments

Well, not really fat.  In fact I have very small feet.  Size 3  Well they were size 3, I'm not so sure now.  I needed to pop to the local shop today and slipped on a pair of pumps I haven't worn for a long, long time.  Certainly not while I've b... Read more
Day 120 - Sleep, perchance to dream
Tuesday, July 21, 2020      4 comments

Or not.  As the case may be.  I don't really care.  About the dreaming that is.  I do very much care about the sleeping.  Or lack thereof.  "Ay, there's the rub".  I've been struggling with insomnia for years.  The last time I can remember falli... Read more
Day 119 - Tedn't right
Monday, July 20, 2020      3 comments

Tedn't right.  Tedn't propa.  Tedn't reeeezzzzzzzznable! Weigh in day today.  I'd gained 4oz which in the grand scheme of things is neither here nor there.  But it does NOT make sense.  Although I stayed within my calorie range for the week... Read more
Day 118 - Clutching at Straws?
Sunday, July 19, 2020      5 comments

Maybe.  Then again, maybe not.  What am I waffling on about now I hear you asking?  OK, so here's the thing, recently I've been using the Ab Rocket daily.  I read lots about it and pretty much everything said doing 'ab exercises' daily was OK.  ... Read more
Day 117 - Running out the door..........
Saturday, July 18, 2020      5 comments

.............with my hat in my hand.   Or in Bilbo's case, without his handkerchief!   Ah those were the days.  Spontaneous bursts of energy/activity leading to countless new adventures and the storing of happy memories.  It really wasn't s... Read more
Day 116 - Arthur is a
Friday, July 17, 2020      4 comments

Tory. I don't know why I didn't realise previously.  It stands to reason when you think about it.  He's vicious, spiteful, and there's no rhyme or reason to his attacks.  Let's face it, if he were a leftie, instead of randomly inflicting va... Read more
Day 115 - Smoke gets in your eyes
Thursday, July 16, 2020      4 comments

You may recall the Ex Worker [?] Friend finally emailed me just over a week ago.  I chose not to answer immediately because I wanted time to mull over what he'd said.  Given it had taken him over 3 months to say it, I felt it wasn't unreasonable... Read more
Day 114 - Taking the time to hear
Wednesday, July 15, 2020      3 comments

Dad was right.  About The Team.  They were back today.  All in all it was a bit of a conflab. Data - I'm not suggesting you change anything you're doing Tiz but maybe filling in what you eat on Spark will help? The Number Cruncher - Ye... Read more
Day 113 - Murrrrrrrrddderrr!
Tuesday, July 14, 2020      6 comments

I loathe slugs.  With a vengeance.  It has to be said, I don't really do 'hate'.  Pointless emotion that wastes your energy.  Furthermore, while you're busy hating someone or something, they/it still have control of you.  But slugs.  Urgh.  I tr... Read more
Day 112 - Thanks Dad
Monday, July 13, 2020      5 comments

Weigh in day.  The Team were hovering as I stood in front of the scales with some trepidation.  Why trepidation?  Because I felt heavier last week.  And my tops seemed to be straining over my stomach.  But hey, I'd been trying.  I was definitely... Read more
