Finally! A nineteen and a half stone certificate!!!

Amazingly – after being stuck in pretty much the same weight bracket since December – I’ve finally moved forward. Well – it’s more than just moving forward. I’ve actually leapt ahead in a way that I’ve not done since the early days of my weight loss journey. As I reported yesterday I’ve been essentially fasting … More Finally!

Trying to be good

So far so good. My foot is holding up and I’m once again walking back and forth to work and getting my daily distance back up to my 20,000 step/10 mile average. I’ve just been out for an evening walk too – and whilst my heel still doesn’t feel quite right it’s not painful – just … More Trying to be good

Considering targets

As a few people pointed out both in person and in the comments on my last blog it’s not my usual behaviour to happily take things easy and rest if I get ill or injure myself.

However – whilst I think it’s important to take time to feel and process what I was feeling I also think that there’s no mileage in disappearing into a sea of misery … More Chasing a sunrise

****ing amazing

Sometimes only expletives can describe how you feel. I like to think that at all times I can navigate successfully around profanity when talking or writing with a deft linguist flick of the wrist – but AT THIS VERY MOMENT the only phrase that seems to fit my mood is ‘I feel ••••ing AMAZING‘. Maybe … More ****ing amazing

Forever wardrobe

I’m going to hazard a guess and say that some retailers have suffered more than others over Christmas – and this is particularly evident in the January Sales that seem to still be ongoing absolutely everywhere. I’m not complaining mind you – because at the moment I’m trying to build a ‘forever wardrobe’. In many … More Forever wardrobe
