Admitting Defeat
Monday, February 22, 2021      7 comments

I hate admitting defeat, therefore I refuse to do it.  However, when it comes to skirmishes with The Abominable Rocker, I am temporarily disengaging.  A tactical withdrawal to enable me to reassess my strategy and return to the fray with reinfor... Read more

Do you use the Spark Nutrition Tracker?  I did when I first joined Spark [back in the Dark Ages] but once I'd kind of got a handle on it, I stopped.  I'd still check in now and then mind to make sure I was keeping it real. Recently Kittyhawk1949... Read more

Weighed myself this morning as per - 140 and a half pounds.  The 130's are so very close I can almost taste them.  Nine days including today to go until the end of the month, and the goal of reaching the 130's by then.  Come on Tiz, you can do t... Read more

Back in the mists of time when I started at secondary school, I attended an all girls school.  Within a year or two we amalgamated with the boys school next door.  Thus creating a huge school.  Before long a mixed group of us had gravitated towa... Read more

February 16th was the anniversary of my sister's death.  40 years now so it's not a raw pain any more.  However the day is always tinged with sorrow.  Plus regrets for what might have been. The years we could have had together.  The nieces and n... Read more
Non scale monitoring

When I started the regular walking again last month, I decided to take The Body's measurements.  I hadn't bothered for a LONG, LONG time.  Now I'm wondering how often to take them.  I'm sure I used to do it monthly.  Or maybe not?  I'm not sure ... Read more

"Shrove Tuesday.  Will we be having pancakes Cook" squealed The Polly Anna Head.  Well of course, that started THEM off. The Despot - The Body is still far too overweight for Tiz to have pancakes. The Psychologist - It's good to have a... Read more
Dining In

Valentine's Day.  The day for loved up couples to dress up and go for a candlelit dinner a deux in some intimate little restaurant.  Well, except it's not really 'a deux' is it?  What with the waiting staff and the other patrons etc.  Long gone ... Read more
I Had A Date
Saturday, February 13, 2021      9 comments

Yes that's right.  I said A Date.  Me.  Ms I'm not sharing my remote with anyone [even though I don't watch TV].  Sharing I say.  Ha!  Any male in the house over the age of 14 will attempt to wrestle control of the remote.  If there's two of 'em... Read more
Measuring Progress
Friday, February 12, 2021      8 comments

At the risk of sounding incredibly anal, I have been measuring my progress on a spreadsheet.  Truly I am not usually an anal person.  Other than over how I stack my washing up.  Back 'home' when The ex Worker [?] Friend visited, he'd occasionall... Read more
The problem with watching Tennis
Thursday, February 11, 2021      8 comments

I was happily watching Nadal demolish his latest victim this morning when SHE piped up. "The problem with watching tennis......".  "There is NO problem with watching tennis.  Ever" I snapped.  "Tsk! The problem with watching tennis is you're not... Read more
Dare to Hope?

I've been saying "my goal this month is to stop gaining weight", for what feels like forever.  Yet every month the weight crept on.  Until eventually it wasn't creeping but piling on.  Into the 140's heavier than I'd ever been [even during my pr... Read more
We interrupt this broadcast..........

Had a little doze before Nadal's match then settled down to watch.  Fortunately it was pretty short and I trundled straight off to bed afterwards.  Managed to sleep for a bit over three hours.  Up in time to watch half an hour or so of Stefanos ... Read more
It was all going so well

I watched the Naomi Osaka match - I really like her and her style of play.  Pretty straightforward though.  Was keeping an eye on the Super Bowl too.  Once Osaka had finished, I kept an eye on the live tennis scores in case anything exciting sta... Read more
It's nearly time
Sunday, February 07, 2021      8 comments

Less than two hours until it starts.  No not the Super Bowl - The Australian Open.  The first grand slam of the year.  Hurrah!  I don't know if I'll actually watch that much tonight though.  First rounds it can be difficult to predict which will... Read more
