Nah… Not feeling it…

Nah… Not feeling it…
Not quite sure what to write up this week. I've had a bit of a quiet one with the builders in replacing my bathroom. To be fair, they've done a bang up job of it and it looks really nice. I'm a bit miffed with the shower cos it's not very powerful but it gets the job done. I've not really got up and moved about this week. I know that my job is sedentary and I'm stuck at a desk all day but at least I walk from the bus to the office, trot around to the brea...

Just a minor loss.

Just a minor loss.
So this is week 99 of my weight loss journey. Nearly two years since I decided that I needed to do something to change my life. A long time for anything and when I started, I never thought that I would care so much about the journey and what it's meant to me.  I've made a huge amount of changes over the last few years and that's been huge for me. I'm not a fan of change and never really have been. It takes me a very long time to get to where I need t...

Smug git alert!

Smug git alert!
Last weeks weigh in was an absolute disaster. My Christmas and New Year had been a proper celebration and that led on to a huge weight gain. 12.5lbs oh my god. I had no idea that I'd eaten 12.5lbs of food over that short period of time! Anyway, this last week has been back on the plan. Not been 100% on it but the majority of the week has been far better than Christmas week! Lots of baked spuds this week but no cheese. Chicken Curry and Mayflower curry sau...

Happy New Year..

Happy New Year..
It's the start of 2020, a brand new year and a new decade. I left 2019 having lost 10.5 stone and have entered into 2020 having lost 9 stone! I've had a very good Christmas and New Year but it's been two weeks of absolutely amazing food, drink and not really caring about what has been going into my mouth. Christmas was an absolute food fest. There was everything that's not great for you and absolutely off plan. Pringles, chocolates, mince pies, yule logs,...

Two weeks in one.

Two weeks in one.
I'll start this weeks blog with an apology. I had a bit of a busy end to the week last time out. I didn't get around to writing a blog post.  It was of course, the election. I had started to write a post and then the Exit Poll was announced and everything fell apart. I had hoped that a Labour win would oust the Tories and start to bring the country back together. Instead, the country got five more years of the same and all hope as they say was gone.&...

Ups and Downs.

Ups and Downs.
Sorry for the late update. It's been a bit of a busy end to the week so I've not really had much time to sit and write up my week. It was a poorish week for food last week. I did lose a pound last week so that's half a stone again over the last two weeks.  Friday was a boozy evening. I didn't drink a huge amount. In fact, I think I only had four pints all night. It was a last bus home job so that was okay is but still very much off plan and over syns...

Erm…

Erm…
So without much expectation, I entered the world of slim this evening to face the scales of doom.  I'd had a goodish week this week. No alcohol at the weekend (well, I did have a rum and diet pepsi at home the other evening) but no massive alcohol binge. No takeaways and no Pringles every night either this week.  However on this weekend, I had a day out on Sunday that included a roast dinner, a hot chocolate and an Italian meal. I didn't th...

I knew it wasn’t good…

I knew it wasn’t good…
This week has been a gain. I know absolutely where I went wrong and it started at about 1pm on Friday afternoon. An afternoon and evening spent in Bristol with the amazing Lacuna Coil. The beer was flowing, the rum was flowing and the chips were chipping. There was a lot of it and that's probably where my week went wrong.  I must have put a stone on just on that one day cos I hadn't thought that the rest of my week had been that bad.  Looking ba...

Back again…

Back again…
Sorry for the lack of an update from last week. I was working the late shift and had an early start on the Friday so I wanted to try and get myself a bit of time in bed.  To be honest, I've been a bit knackered this week too so I started to write this weeks blog post on Monday. I lost 1lb last week which was slightly disappointing as I weighed in the morning. Usually when you do that, you're usually a bit lighter.  I feel like I've had a toug...

There’s no F in excuses…

There’s no F in excuses…
So I'm not going to make any. I'm not going to blame this stinking cold again this week and I'm not going to blame the weather for not going out and walking a few miles. I'm not going to blame my mates for leading me astray and making me drink a beer and I'm not going to blame my work colleagues for leaving biscuits lying around. I can only blame myself for this weeks weight gain. I've not been 100% on plan and if I'm honest, I don't think I've been 50% t...
