Tuesday, October 23, 2012      92 comments

If you hunt around, there are an awful lot of people who've never put a blog up. And there are plenty more who write very short ones, as if they haven't got much to say. Loads of people don't write blogs with a beginning, a middle and an end. Or... Read more

Today I go shopping for dinner on the way home, which I don't usually do. Usually I head straight home in order to avoid the temptations of supermarkets. However today is ... Read more

Get home from work tonight, utterly ravenous. This is a good sign. It means (fanfare) I haven't fallen off the wagon today in any way, shape or form. Hit the kitchen at a gallop, scattering assorted cats on the way. They should know better ... Read more

My doctor said 'well done'!

Admittedly, it's not the first thing she said. The first thing was 'Are you taking your blood pressure tablets?' to which I had to reply 'Ah. No.' emoticonRead more

Today I decide to go to Epping Forest for a change. Listen very carefully to my plans. I want to walk FROM Epping rather than TO Epping, and now that I've found where the path proper starts in Epping, I can. The plan is to walk from Epping to th... Read more

Don't worry, the report from my afternoon tea is not too bad. About 950 calories left for tea at Claridges (as it turned out to be), so I am probably a bit over for the day... Read more

I wanted to put this monster under the microscope. When I first noticed him in the emoticons, I thought 'how cute, a little imp'. Later I realised he's not cute at all. He's ... Read more

I've got the mind of a hare and the body of a tortoise. Today, two of my colleagues told me that I look thinner and wanted to know how much weight I've lost. Yesterday another colleague said I'm noticeably a different shape. This is interes... Read more

I get home from work and I'm starving. So ok, I'll tell you something you don't already know. Don't put me off my stroke. Hit the kitchen, fast. Ravenous. However, there's a problem. I want to get sparking, I want to put my day's cal... Read more

I've just added my final calories for the day and I'm still 51 below my lower limit. Yes, reach for your reading glasses by all means (I've got varifocals myself, no way will I ever be able to keep track of two pairs, one is bad enough), I ... Read more

Taking stock

Sunday, October 07, 2012      38 comments
