Wow! Somehow it’s almost the end of October – and I’ve been pretty much on plan for nearly an entire month!
I also feel rather proud of myself that I didn’t turn yesterday into another post weigh in munchie festival like I did last Saturday. Although I pulled it around over the following six days, pretty much every moment was spent with the thought ‘I must fix the damage’ going round and round in my head.
It became a little irritating if I’m honest. This time to save myself the hassle I kept things very much under control.

Consequently today I’ve had something of a spring in my step.
This is actually rather surprising because this positive feeling is despite a crappy night’s sleep due to some genius in my street deciding that partying all night long until 4.30am would be a great idea.
There’s only one way to deal with feeling this knackered however (especially when the weather’s been so lovely again – why the hell wasn’t it like this when I went to Malvern?!) and that’s going out in the fresh air for a long walk.
The Grand Union Canal looked particularly nice this morning – and since I was awake anyway I decided to make appropriate use of the clocks going back and went out bright and early to enjoy the extra daylight!
I know it’s probably daft – but I’ve also been walking around feeling as proud as punch and really happy that (as per my post yesterday) I’m wearing a pair of jeans with a 38 inch waist and everything else I have on is an XL! Not only that but everything’s super super comfy!
Unfortunately a man can’t do without sleep forever – and almost as soon as I came home I ended up face planting a pillow.
And that, dear internet was pretty much the rest of my Sunday taken care of…
