Got the keys for gate today and went to check plot over for rubbish, took a few piccies to share with you, it looks more overgrown in the picture than it actually is, luckily no invasive weeds or brambles..
This one is facing south looking down the path that runs alongside the plot, the shed marks the end, unfortunately someone elses shed.
North facing I did inherit a compost bin. lol
I was walking through the grass and weeds looking for rubbish pre rotovating and found these.
Strawberries, growing in long grass and dry soil and still so sweet tasting
Also found raspberries and what Fwendy thinks could be Loganberries
It was a very hot day today and I didn't get there until 10.30am with a second composter that I managed to get from Freecycle.
Next thing is to clear all rubbish, most a few bricks and some wood, isolate and dig around fruit that is there, then get the man that does to strimmer and rotovate.

Got a letter from the Council to say one had become available and would I like to come view it.
Well YES PLEASE, it is in a lovely sunny position right next to 2 water taps, it was ploughed at the beginning of the year some veggies were planted then immediately they lost interest.
So I now have a patch of earth 150-180 sq yards in size with quite a few weeds on it but nothing too heavy.
WHOO HOO fresh air, extra exercise and home grown veggies to boot.

Now as you familiar with me know things have been slow or none existent weight wise for the past few weeks.
Well today we had a family day out, DH packed us up a mixed picnic, I thought to myself I shall eat exactly what I am hungry for.
I had a light brekkie and come lunch time ate exactly what I fancied and stopped when I was full, then an hour or so later had a Cornetto whilst lying on a hill in the sun watching my children mucking about rolling down the hill and admiring the young girls , it was so idyllic very de-stressing
When I came home I entered my foods onto the diary, including the Cornetto which was 228 I had eaten 674 cals not bad not bad at all.

So Sunday I had a tantrum at not achieving the weight loss I thought I had earned through good eating and exercise, really mature. NOT
Then a higher power sets into motion some illumination for me.
Firstly I watch a programme called "the woman with gigantic legs" in a nutshell a woman with a genetic fault that caused her legs to continue growing until they are malformed and weigh about 7stones each, is she sorry for herself? NO, she continues with determination and courage, she takes control of her life never settling for the first answer she is given.
Secondly a programme about a man born with bones missing in his feet which are amputated very early in life, does he sit back and bemoan his fate NO he runs, he plays rugby, in fact there is barely a sport he doesn't take part in, he is more able bodied in his disability than anyone I know.
My sons girlfriend is looking for a dress for a wedding we are both going to, she trys a couple of my dresses on, OMG she is the same size as me, I saw myself as much larger. We go shopping together she doesn't dwell on her imperfections, where as I would be there picking my reflections to piece.
Okay Lord thank you, point made.

I have remained EXACTLY the same this week.
Same fat %
Same measurements EXACTLY
I have just sat and worked out my bmr, my calories in, my cals expanded in exercise and according to that I am in deficit by 5,418 cals which equate to 1.548lbs (exactly) down.
Now where is my weight loss, I earned, I worked for it, I sweated for it and I want it and I WANT IT NOW.
