Half life.

Half life.
My week didn't really start that well. I mean it was a great night out last Friday.  My department had their summer barbecue at Revolution in Cardiff. A Friday afternoon where the drinks did flow and the food did food. I was going to try and be as good as I could be but once I sank the first pint, I knew that I wasn't going to be able to control what went in.  It wasn't just the afternoon. That turned into an evening which turned into a night wh...

This week has been quite a good one all told. I've managed my food quite nicely. I had a quiet weekend and was introduced to a new way of having pasta!  There was a cracking night out at a burlesque show on Friday night. Something I'd never been to before. It was an experience that I hope to repeat some time soon. I knew a couple of the ladies that were incredibly brave enough to perform in front of a group of strangers and I was amazed at how confid...

Today has been a day off work. I've been to mum's and we had lunch at the local Beefeater. However, I tried to be good by choosing the gammon steak and cutting the fat off it. Instead of chips, I had a baked spud and left the butter out. I've cooked a chilli for lunches at work. Used 5% mince so that will be free at lunch times too.

Not a good one.

Not a good one.
This week has not been a very good one on the food front. Friday after work, I went to a gig in Newport and whilst I did have a beer, most of the night was spent with a diet coke in my hand. It was a good night but it was the beginning of quite a tiring few days. Saturday was a visit out to the Mum. Holly the dog hasn't been too well recently so we had to take her to the vet for a checkup. She's got a bad leg which may or may not be arthritic so after her...

A Wednesday Wander

A Wednesday Wander
I've been a right lazy git this week. I've done no walking at all and I'm feeling a bit bad about it.  I had a hangover on Tuesday after a great gig on Monday evening so that's not been great. So I had to go for a wander this evening. Thankfully the weather held so a good 3 miles covered. Weigh in tomorrow and you know what, I think I'm in for a gain. :( ...

The End of an Era.

The End of an Era.
Tonight was a sad night at Slimming World. Our consultant Jennie was in charge of her last group. For the last 68 weeks she's been there to encourage and advise. Always a word or idea to turn things around, she has inspired me to my current loss and I know that we'll all miss her in group. Thank you for your assistance and knowledge. This week hasn't been so bad and I'm happy to report that I was able to lose another 2.5lbs. I was slimmer of the we...
