I’m feeling loads more like myself today – and oddly it seems to have coincided with a suddenly rainy cold snap.
I’ve suddenly realised that although I haven’t suffered at all with the heat (it’s amazing how much better I feel in hot weather now I’m thinner!) I think I’ve been carrying around a lot of excess water.
This may explain some of my struggles in the past seven days where my weight has fluctuated like a yo-yo.
Yesterday – almost immediately as the temperature dropped I found myself going to the toilet like a racehorse that had swallowed a swimming pool – and whaddaya know – today I feel as light as a feather!
I’m also sick of giving myself a hard time so today (just like yesterday) is all about being nice to Davey and not him grinding himself into the flipping floor with walking and guilt.
Every day recently when I’ve fancied going to the cinema I’ve talked myself out of it – and as a consequence there are loads of films that I really wanted to see but haven’t gotten around to.
If I don’t hurry up they won’t be showing any more and that would mean seeing them on a small screen – which just won’t do when it comes to big budget action movies.
First on the agenda today is The Incredibles 2.
I flipping love Pixar films. They just contain a totally ageless joy that other animated films can’t quite seem to replicate – and this one has been on my must see list for a while.
It’s on at 10.10am – and I’m heading out now to see it.
It’s raining but who cares?
I’ve spent the last couple of years building an all weather wardrobe and it’s time to pack away the Hawaiian shirt, stick the shorts in a drawer and break out the walking boots, fleece and my waterproof coat.
I think I’ve actually missed you!

Yaaay! That was flipping awesome!
Is there such a thing as a bad Pixar movie?
I think not!
This time Elastigirl gets to take centre stage and we get to see Mr Incredible stay home and look after the kids.
Jack-Jack starts developing powers, Dash and Violet get more to do and the whole thing is just as exciting and funny as the first one!
It’s highly recommended!
No it’s time to go for a walk and get a coffee.
Next on the list is Ant Man and the Wasp.
This is at 3.25pm. I’ve got 2.78 miles in the bank so far – so I have plenty of time to make a dent in my walking goals for the day.
You didn’t think I could sit still ALL day long did you?! 😏
(Author goes for coffee)
Well – I’ve wandered around town and I’ve got a couple more miles under my belt – although no serious exercise – but I don’t really care.
I’m caffeinated and I’ve had some spectacular luck with bargains on the dead and dying counter at Tesco – meaning I’ve been both frugal and on plan today.
Town is quite busy at the moment – which is rather surprising given the rain.
The weather seriously can’t make up its mind at the moment though and between precipitation and clear skies – and it’s not swinging either way.
Time to go and queue for another ticket in the cinema.
(Author watches Ant Man and the Wasp)
Yay! Another great sequel!!! That was also an improvement on the first one and I really didn’t expect that!!!
It has no links at all to Avengers: Infinity War until the first of the two hidden endings – leaving it on a real cliffhanger!!
Nuts. Now I want to see the next instalment!!!
I was planning to go for Mission Impossible after AMATW – but I think I’ve reached the limit of my ability to sit in a cinema.
It’s nearly two hours long and I need to walk.
(Author walks, and eats absolutely tons of tasty blackberries on the numerous bushes that seem to be absolutely everywhere!)
At the moment the things falling off bushes and trees are absolutely everywhere and I’ve taken home loads of apples and blackberries over the last two weeks.
It’s hard to see why anyone would pay a couple of pounds a punnet when you can wander around with a couple of plastic bags and fill your pockets completely for free!!!
I decided in the end (even though I’m only just over 7 miles for the day) to just chillax and slowly meander home.
Once I did I put my feet up with a huge salad and some Luke Cage on Netflix.
It’s amazing how nice a freshly grated carrot and balsamic salad tastes with beetroot and olives.
Of course the mint sauce, tuna, orange pepper, lettuce and cucumber didn’t hurt either.
When I make a ‘Netflix and chill’ salad I really make a mondo one!
So internet – that’s my day.
No soul searching.
Just a lazy rainy Sunday relaaaaaaaxing in the cinema 🤗
I hope yours was as great as mine!
