Here we are, in the run up to Christmas! As I was just saying to my hubby, it is amazing how circumstances have put the magic back into Christmas for us. From March to September, we were only going to the in-laws' for Sunday dinner and wer... Read more

Coming towards the end of the year, I always get a bit melancholy, especially in a year when I have not been very successful towards my goals. 2020, of course, is another level of disappointing! So right now I am fighting with my thoughts ... Read more
Review of 12th October - 1st November
Monday, November 02, 2020      1 comments

October turned out to be a very rough month. I came down with a cold with the fun side effect of dizziness, caused by congestion in my ears. I am only now starting to see past it, I guess I have become more used to it. The biggest im... Read more

The fact the scale went up again this morning gives a fairly good impression of how the last week went. I was still eating too much! However, I managed to create a 7 day streak (today will be day 8) of getting at least 2000 steps per day, ... Read more

My first week of trying to stick to my 2k steps per day has been a mixed bag. Some days I exceeded it and some days it just didn't happen. That's ok though, because no one is perfect! My weekly weigh in showed a 1.2lb gain today. No surpris... Read more

Today marks 5 years since I created this account (I've had previous accounts and given up) and I am definitely not where I thought I would be by now in terms of weight loss progress, but I am very proud of myself for sticking with it, albeit to ... Read more

Where the heck did July go?! I really don't understand how, in a time period where I am pretty much confined to the house, time is passing so quickly! But, here we are. 7 months down in this very strange year. In my case, 7 months down... Read more

The scale went up again this week. OK, time of the month is around, but it's still not good to see! But this is the start of a new week and a new chance to get this right, or closer to right than I have been doing! Whilst I am trying to ke... Read more

Regular readers will remember that I celebrated expecting a nephew or niece in November this year. This morning, tragedy struck when we found out that the baby had not survived. The scene was the 20 week scan where we were to find out the g... Read more

This year is just flying by! I'm trying to keep my head straight, so I have decided to focus on a 10 week block and try to lose 7lbs in that time. I also want to achieve a step goal of 100k in that time. That may not seem much to some, but... Read more
