Some days are good.  Occasionally we get days that are exceptionally good.  Some days are bad and, sadly, some days are REALLY bad so we just have to hang on in.  Most days are kind of average.  In these Fizzy Flu times probably monotonous is th... Read more
Yesterday's Yomp
Thursday, March 25, 2021      11 comments

Weighed in this morning and I'd lost a mammoth 1lb 10oz.  Of course I realise I could find it all back on again when I weigh myself tomorrow but still, I felt well rewarded for yesterday's yomp.  Another 2lb 2oz and I'll have lost a stone since ... Read more

Back was somewhat easier today but I still put a heat pad on before I went for my walk plus the knee braces of course.  I reckoned I could do 45 minutes and thought possibly I'd attempt an hour again.  I planned on doing the sort of 15 minute ci... Read more
Tale of the Tape - March
Tuesday, March 23, 2021      9 comments

Truth be told there isn't much of a tale.  Not surprising as I haven't lost much weight since I last took my measurements on 23rd Feb.  It would appear I have lost half an inch off my bust, 1/2 inch off my right thigh, plus a 1/4 inch each off m... Read more

Braced myself this morning as I stepped on the scales.  Don't get disheartened I told myself as I looked down fully expecting to read 140 something.  Instead to my surprise, it read 139 lbs and 2oz so in fact I'd 'lost' another half a pound.  Go... Read more
There'll be days like this

Weigh in this morning and I was back up to 139 lbs and 10 oz.  Ouch.  But hey, still in the 130's.  If I could just have a really good long walk today, or a couple of say 30 minute walks, that should help keep things under control.  Oh but my le... Read more

Stepped on the scales somewhat warilly this morning.  What if I'd gained after all? That will be OK, I told myself.  You have to accept with daily weighing that some days there will be an increase for no obvious reason.  I needn't have worried. ... Read more
I'm claiming it

139.04 Oh my, would you look at that?  OK step off the scales.  Now on the scales. 139.04 Now off again.  And on again. 139.04 Me - Yes, yes, yes, I made it. The Despot - You can't claim that. The Number Crunch... Read more

Quarter Finals at Dubai today meaning four matches to watch.  Went for my walk before the first one.  Planned on doing 45 minutes but after 20 minutes my back started to really hurt so I headed back to Base Camp.  Still did a total of 30 minutes... Read more
Cook's Irish Take

Well it is St Patrick's day and you know Cook.  Any excuse for a 'theme' to her creations.  Breakfast was a 'slimmed' version of Colcannon, with smoked salmon.  ... Read more

Today did not start well.  Came downstairs, flicked the kettle on for my morning cup of tea, then stepped on the scales.  1/2lb gained.  Thanks no doubt to the lethargy inducing stodge yesterday.  Back to the kitchen to make my tea.  Sat down an... Read more
Too much stodge

I went kind of off plan today.  Started fine.  Fruit salad and Greek yogurt for breakfast.  Lunchtime I didn't really know what I fancied then I noticed a pasty in the fridge.  I should use that, or put it in the freezer I mused.  Might as well ... Read more

Hold your horses!  First up I had to make my morning cuppa, plus check on the grow bag outside the back door that the bulbs are planted in.  They're coming along nicely. ... Read more
Containing my Curiosity

Daughter called me yesterday and during our conversation she mentioned a parcel would be arriving today that I needed to put somewhere cool, dry, and not in sunlight, but mustn't open until tomorrow.  OK fair enough.  After all, my wedding anniv... Read more
That Interview!
Friday, March 12, 2021      6 comments

I've tried to avoid the subject all week.  Not least because I haven't watched it.  I'm not interested in the Royal Family.  Well except that I think it's ridiculous that one family has so much wealth and privilege granted to them [at the expens... Read more
