Food poisoning - again?
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      2 comments

So I'm just getting over food poisoning, and when I thought about it, I realised this is the fourth episode of it I've had this year. That can't be right, can it? I'm either making the wrong choices away from home, or we're doing something wrong... Read more
A little bit of something good...

Went to my favourite restaurant today for lunch. Michelin-starred, a bit more expensive than where I'd normally go, but reasonably priced for the quality. The portions are small but the food is the best I've ever tasted, anywhere. I've gone over... Read more
What a week! What have I learned?

Work was crazy this week. Due to a topical issue in the news here my work has been crazy fielding calls from journalists, and trying to promote our message rather than just reacting to the news. It's been exciting but on the whole I prefer for o... Read more

Today I was looking forward to listening to The Spark audiobook on the train. I like that solitary me time to wind up to and down from work. On the way there I realised I was sitting opposite someone I vaguely knew from years back, and introduce... Read more

We went to a comedy club tonight for Valentines - which was brilliant I might add - but it is a bit tedious that of course we got picked on by the MC for being fat. Fair play to him, he was doing a routine about his own struggle to lose weight. ... Read more
The Spark Chapter 1 - make a vision board!
Saturday, February 13, 2010      3 comments

If there's one thing I'm going to take from chapter one, it's to be clear about my goals, and keep them always in my mind. So I'm going to make up a vision board - a real one, and maybe also a virtual one. Okay, one more thing I'll take - ... Read more
