Demeaning men - not what you might expect.
I'm not sure if this will get censored or not. It's not meant to be rude, or offensive, but I just need somewhere to get this off my chest, and Facebook is probably not the place, seeing as my partner, daughter and friends are on there too.

Weeell, I have been backsliding terribly, ever since Christmas really, and it's showing. I'm now 6 lbs heavier than I was before Christmas, and it's not even all about the Christmas chocs although my other half finally opened his tin of Roses, a... Read more
Although most of the Christmas chocolate has gone now, there's still some around, and if it's there, I find it extremely hard to resist, even more so now after having eaten it again through Christmas. I knew that this would happen, it really is ... Read more
Partner joining in
My partner Stu bought himself a Fitbit One just after Christmas. It was on his wish list, but I didn't fancy spending £80 for something he'd probably use for a week and then lose interest in. so hes started using it, and he's started asking me h... Read more
Weeell, I weighed myself this morning, for the first time since the 25th, and, surprisingly, hadn't put on anything since then, despite having eaten lots of things I shouldn't. I don't know how long it takes for food to be metabolised into pound... Read more
Day of tidying up. Or at least, minimising the disgusting mess that is our house. No one would know that I do cleaning for a living! I spent too long yesterday sitting playing Minecraft, now I have back ache, but at least the best therapy for... Read more
Well, yesterday was my oldest niece's wedding to a lovely guy. We haven't been to a wedding for a few years, and we even managed to get my daughter into a dress for it, (but not me!). It was a beautiful setting,, on a bright frosty day, and we ... Read more
Well, I was going to go to the gym today, as I sometimes do on a Sunday afternoon, especially as we ate out and I overdid it, of course. But, our road has been flooded again, the firemen have been here all day in the biting wind, pumping the wat... Read more
SP Bootcamp DVD
Well, I got the replacement Bootcamp DVD and it's exactly the same as the one I sent back, it won't run properly on the dvd player. The intro plays fine, and then the up and down buttons won't work on the menu, not even the skip buttons, so I c... Read more
Well, just weighed in this evening, and my weight is up. And actually it's been a bit up over my SP set goal for the last 4 weeks, which also happens to correspond with the ishcial tuberosity pain. So, I've been exercising less hard, favouring ... Read more
Nutri Bullet blender
I saw on a forum post someone referring to a Nutri Bullet, a kind of uber blender, and it's available in the UK too. It seems to utterly pulverise food, so that there is nothing left but liquid, not even bits like unblended broccoli stems. Now,... Read more
I've been looking around at ways to fill my tummy so I don't feel peckish, without adding lots of calories, and of course, it always comes down to, fruit and veg. I found a page about adding veg sneakily into meals, like blending parsnips and c... Read more
What are other people eating?
I sometimes look at the Spark recipes and save the ones that look tasty to me, for maybe making someday. Mainly involving chocolate in some way, it has to be admitted! But there are some things like blueberry muffins and so on. What I don't get ... Read more
Christmas is going to be very hard this year, because there is usually so much chocolate and other goodies around, and if it's there, I'll eat it. I can control some of it by not buying it and bringing it into the house (and making sure I'm full... Read more
Just had a go at making my own trail mix, with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, currants, dried cranberries and tiny pieces of chopped up plain (dark) chocolate. 232 cals for 50 grams, (although this of course assumes a totally even mix of ingred... Read more
