11 November 2010 – why doesn’t it come off where you want it?

Pretty sure I won't look that good

Pretty sure I won’t look that good

It was back to wet and windy again this morning. Luckily Rae offered me another lift to work so it was just the fifteen minute walk from the parking spot to Mad House to worry about. Still it’s the last day of the week at work for me and I’m hoping the rain will hold off tomorrow morning for my Moonwalk training walk. With two lifts to work I need to get those Marrakech miles in, I’m fed up with being in the middle of the channel and want to get back to dry land again. Continue reading

Another weigh in and another 0.8 lb lost. It’s better than nothing and getting me closer to my next goal so I’m not complaining. It was dark when I got up but, as it got light, I saw heavy rain and high winds out of the window. Last night when I went to bed I could hear it pounding on the windows but I hoped it would be gone by morning.

Early morning at Riverside Park

It was thinking about raining when I left just before eight and I wasn’t sure if I was going to stay dry for the whole walk but I had my hooded coat and my beret in my bag, just in case.

2 November 2010 – motivation and loss of face

Heading for Marrakech, at least virtually

Heading for Marrakech, at least virtually

It’s strange getting up in the light and even stranger when it’s dark so early in the evening. First thing I cracked on with my Wii exercises including a bit of jogging to build up my Marrakech miles. From what other people have posted on the walking board I think I’m falling behind already and I”d like to get out of Crawley before the week is out. Continue reading

1 November 2010 – not stuck after all

Despite being sick, doing very little exercise and a bit of comfort eating I lost 1.6 pounds this week. Perhaps I’m not stuck after all. The clocks going back played havoc with my body clock and I found it hard to drag myself out of bed this morning and drag myself back to work to face the music. Continue reading
