Still Ill! :(

Still Ill! :(
So this cold is still with me, a week on. I'm not sure that it's possible for one nose to to produce so much gunge! It does however and my head is still banging. So it's another few days of taking the tablets!  Perhaps I can kill it off with some Rum! I have plenty to choose from at the moment!  So down to this week then. I haven't had a great week cos I put a pound on but that's okay cos I've essentially maintained my weight over the last two w...

This week I have been mostly poorly. Not been great this last couple of days. Had a couple of days off this week with a stonking great cold. I went into work on Monday and only had half day cos of a very late night on Saturday / Sunday again, then in on Tuesday suffering sightly, then off yesterday and today with a snotty schnoz and a banging old head.  I had tried to be good this week, what with the massive gain last week. It didn't get off to a gre...

Shocking…

Shocking…
We're four days in to the 5th decade of Phil and let's face it, I've not had a fantastic start with the old belly. I knew that this week was not going to be very good. I've had a damn fine birthday week and it's been mental foodwise.  I've eaten everything that's been put in front of me this week and I mean everything. Fish 'n Chips, Chocolate Bombs, Beer, Pizza, Curry and Chips, Sausage in Batter, Cheeeeeeeeeesecake, everything! So that's why I've p...

Four days to go…

Four days to go…
Another week down and thankfully a bit of a loss. I'd put on last week and that was a bit of a problem. 1.5lbs on last week was a bit of a disappointment all told. But this week has been a bit of a worry for me cos I swore that I was going to put on again. So with just a few days before the big 50 hits, I was pleased that the 1.5 on last week was taken off this. I can therefore go into my birthday weekend without worrying about the potential weight gain. ...

Just over a week.

Just over a week.
It's the 27th September 2019 and in just over a week, I get to the big half century. I hit 50 and that's an achievement in itself! However I'm struggling with the plan. I'm not planning to have a bad weekend this weekend but I'm sure that I'm going to have some crap food and a bit of beer that may cause me hassle.  My week this week has been a bit of an odd one. I thought that I'd been fairly good and on plan with it. I'd scrapped the porridge in the...

Better late…

First off, I suppose I need to apologise for the site being down this week. My hosting provider was experiencing "high server load", what ever that means!  So it stopped me from posting my last week on here. As you may know, I lost three pounds this week. I've made a change in my breakfasts this week. Stopped the porridge and went back to the trusty old Weetabix.  I did a couple of walks last week. I went out on Sunday for a fairly short wander ...

The run ends…

The run ends…
So my good run of weight loss has come to an end this evening with a half pound gain. Dammit!!! Ah well, I think I need to have a think about breakfast in particular. This last week I've been having a pot of porridge. However, they are not good. They are quite heavily syned so I think it's probably a good idea to go back to the trusty old weetabix.  I did have a Chinese on Friday night last week. It was very naughty but massively delicious. I've not ...

I Am Ten

I Am Ten
I've got another award this evening. This one has taken a long time to get but it's here and I'm chuffed to beans about it. Ten stone is a long way from where I was when I started this journey. 28 stone 11.5lbs was frightening and I don't think that I would ever have hoped for a 10 stone weight loss.  I have absolutely no idea how this has come about. Even now, I've no idea how I've lost 4lbs this week. It was a poor weekend. I'd got a bit drunk on F...

A busy week.

A busy week.
It isn't getting any easier this week you know, I've had celebratory drinks, a celebratory party and a celebratory wander. There has been a lot of celebration this week and I suppose there's another celebration as I lost three whole pounds. Friday last week was the end of my mate's first week in his new job. We worked together for a good 15 years and now he's working for my current employer.  Of course, we had to go out for a quick pint after work on...

Maintained dammit!!!

Maintained dammit!!!
Okay, I admit, I've not been good this week. It's been a bit of a mixed bag with some party food and a nice dessert that perhaps should really have been avoided. (But I swear it was within my syns. Honest guv!) Saturday afternoon saw my friend have a little birthday tea. It's her birthday next week and her daughters birthday the week before so it was a joint celebration. The tea party was lovely but it did consist of lots of things that are lethal to the ...
