As is customary with a Saturday morning I awoke to a trance like state. This is a moment of half asleep but growing self awareness that I suspect every dieter experiences when they first open their eyes on their weigh in day. This (when you’ve been practising the technique as long as I have) involves … More Higher consciousness
One of the unintended consequences of the last couple of years of change has been a continued underlying level of confusion surrounding many things that I previously took for granted in life. It really never occurred to me when I was ‘old Davey’ that every major thought or decision that I made about anything was arrived at … More Determined to find out
I’ve been busy today, and have had a number of errands to run after work. This evening has been dark, it’s been cold, it’s been wet, it’s been windy, and both Warwick and Leamington have been gridlocked with traffic. Frankly it’s not been nice – but I’ve tried to make the most of it. As regular … More The beginning of something beautiful
Although I’m used to filling my day with things to do, sometimes it hits me just how much I can fit in now that I’m no longer wiped out after just waddling to my car and back. After my less than stellar result on the scales yesterday I decided to go for it today and … More Productive Sunday
Weather wise today couldn’t be more different from yesterday – but the consistent theme of continually decreasing temperatures is ever present. I’ve therefore decided to choose the nuclear option and… (sharp intake of breath) turned on the central heating. I think it would be hard for anyone to argue that my blog these days is anything … More Adult credentials
I’m trying not to think too much about tomorrow’s weigh in – but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t on my mind at the moment. Although I’ve not had any major ‘falls from grace’ I feel with the loss of daylight since the clocks changed and the (flipping ridiculous) cold I’ve probably eaten … More The twin towers
I was walking home tonight and thinking how much I like passing one particular shop window. Day after day I’ve found myself gazing at the coloured lamps within like a moth faced with a full moon and I can’t help stopping to admire it. The display has reminded me of a variety of things each … More Bendy lights
I’m just gonna get right out there and say it. I’m really flipping happy today. The sun was is shining in the park and as I took this photo I felt good. Although there’s still a serious chill in the air I really don’t care at all. My happiness – although enhanced by the weather – … More Lovelyandwarmandtoasty!!!
‘Granny I want my cappuccino lactose free. It’s better that way.’ said the well spoken little voice in front of me. ‘I think everything should be lactose free…’ said a young girl in the Starbucks queue clutching her triple cheese toastie (still in its wrapper) close to her chest. ‘It’s just healthier… Jeannie said so.’ she … More Cheese toastie – and hold the lactose.
Well it’s been a busy week – and a noticeably darker and colder one at that. However as always my focus has (whenever possible) been on eating healthy meals and making sure that I get a good level of exercise into my day. I’ll be honest though – on the latter topic this has been … More Kicked in the blogs
