Just feeling like giving up when...

Saturday, February 28, 2015      1 comments

It's. Been a mad, high pressure week for me and I've not had (or made) the time to do any exercise . It's been all work and slump - apart from a long walk yesterday. I was sticking to my no carb rule but felt I was getting fatter, not slimmer. ... Read more

Experiments with low carb meals

Monday, February 16, 2015      2 comments

Feeling pretty good as I've lost a bit more weight and feel absolutely fine. I've been drinking gallons of lemon and ginger tea which might be helping I guess. Today I had about 30 secs to get lunch together before leaving for work. So, I ha... Read more

Cauliflower- my new best friend.

Sunday, February 15, 2015      4 comments

I tend to walk past the cauliflowers when I'm food shopping. Although I remember lovely cauliflower cheese from my childhood, it hasn't tasted so good the way I've made it since it's been me doing the cooking. Until this weekend that is! Today... Read more

Another 14pound! Whoops, that's gained, not lost...

Wednesday, February 19, 2014      4 comments

I'm angry with myself and busy wallowing in self-loathing at my weight gain, since the start of January. So that's really doing me a power of good, obviously. So it's back to a more determined effort now. ... Read more

Fighting back to fitness

Sunday, December 29, 2013      0 comments

Things have been right off course for a few months now. A nasty lingering virus that seemed to mutate into different forms in order to attack my body in as many ways as it could together with Christmas overload has left me feeling really slothf... Read more

Nasty nausea diet

Wednesday, December 04, 2013      1 comments

I'm definitely not on my diet of choice at the moment, but an unpleasant flu like virus has left me feeling nauseus and unable to eat much. This is a very rare thing for me! Hope it doesn't last long though. ... Read more

No excuses November 4th

Monday, November 04, 2013      1 comments

Back at work today...not fun. As a teacher my job has become much harder, with more expectations and duties. I am expected to work for about 7 years longer than anticipated, whilst being paid less. Going in today to be sworn at and general... Read more

No excuses November day 3

Sunday, November 03, 2013      0 comments

Going ok so far, if not perfect! Tea and cake at Mock Turtle cafe was allowed because A- i was taking my mum out B- I'd walked along the sea front for a while C- it was apple cake, one of my 5 a day... I am ready for a fast day tomorrow... Read more

No excuses November!

Saturday, November 02, 2013      3 comments

Well, here I go again. November finds me heavier than I had hoped, the scales having gone up rather than down as intended. Hmmm It's been a very difficult few months for lots of reasons and I have found solace in eating - but now I'm feelin... Read more

I'm excited about my birthday, even though it means I'm another year older... Today I'm looking forward to being rather spoilt and having a fun family celebration this evening. I will be eating well! At the moment I'm contemplating getting up... Read more

Lost 7 lbs on my first fast day! Wish it was always that easy...

Saturday, June 01, 2013      0 comments

I am very pleased and relieved that I managed to lose the 7lbs I'd suddenly gained following a few days of relative feasting, when some friends came to stay. I was gutted when I got on those scales. It had taken a month or more to lose it and ... Read more

A quick start to the Fast diet

Thursday, May 30, 2013      5 comments

For the past 4 days we've had friends to stay and have done plenty of eating and drinking during that time, culminating with a fantastic Greek meze in a Brighton restaurant. However, we have also been for several long walks and I hadn't felt I'... Read more

Fun in the Sun

Saturday, April 20, 2013      1 comments

It's been a long time coming, but today felt like spring was really here - probably snow again next week now. We went for a long cycle and it was really spirit lifting. The sky was clear and bright blue, the countryside was green and lush, wi... Read more

Cycling and salmon

Wednesday, April 10, 2013      1 comments

Had a good day on the cycling front. Feel a bit of stamina returning. Might be off for a ramble tomorrow. We'll see. Ate out this evening. Salmon and new potatoes- delicious. Probably should have left the holland aisle sauce.... Read more

Diet books... (a different way of losing pounds)

Sunday, April 07, 2013      8 comments

I have quite a good collection of literature on the subject of getting slimmer. Recent additions include Fat around the Middle by Marilyn Glenville and The Fast Diet by Dr Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer. Sadly, the fact that I have invested... Read more
