1 May 2012 – the good news, the bad news and the uncertainty

IMG_1664

Hi folks. Just to let you know I am still around just skulking in the background. After the redundancy announcement last Monday I’ve been a bit lax with the logging etc and, if I’m honest, eaten way too much. Comfort eating I know. Also had the girls from work round on Friday night and a great deal of alcohol was consumed, plus a photo of the infamous Mad House MD who came to our office on Friday and told us all how hard it was for him to close our building pinned up on the punch bag got a good beating.

29 February – all change again

cocktails

One extra day very four years and I have to spend it at work. It’s not all bad though. Our manager, the one who didn’t believe I had whiplash and made my life hell, has been promoted. She’s leaving us this week. Good news for her and good news for me I think. We are all off to TGI Fridays for a farewell meal. Obviously this is not good news for the weight loss plan. Oh well, win some, lose some. Continue reading

20 February 2013 – well and truly stuck

20121002-195746

This week have stayed the same again! I think my scales actually do hate me. Still I did have a Chinese on saturday when Bard came round although I didn’t eat it all. Still, I guess all the salt and MSG could have caused a bit of water logging. Anyway I’m not letting myself get down about it just keeping on keeping on. Continue reading

15 December 2011 – Christmas mania

IMG_6472

It’s been a busy old day. My hairdresser Rachel came round in the morning. Our washing machine broke and Commando spent the morning fixing it. He’s such a clever thing. CJ and I went into town and I got most of the Christmas shopping done. There was hardly a moment to sit down all day and then I had to go out again for the team meal.

14 December 2011 – Christmas team night temptation

There are way too many chances to fall off the wagon at this time of year. Tomorrow night we have our works Christmas meal. Everything seems to revolve around eating at this time of year and I think all we can do is try our best and then get back to basics in January. Continue reading

13 December 2011 – temptation

cropped-image2590

Yesterday I had a bad food day. We had the Mad House Xmas lunch complete with pudding and cream. Not good for the diet but tasty all the same. Back on the wagon today though big time. Whose idea was it to have Christmas just when I was trying to get my eating under control and shift these whiplash pounds? Continue reading

20 September 2011 – team talk in the pub

IMG_6949

Not such a good day for me. I didn’t do my pump it up this morning because I had to go to work early to get some processes sorted out before my holiday. I did walk in with my back pack and we had a pub team talk today too and I took my back pack with me. Sadly my only exercise today. I was planning on doing some more this evening but everything running late and I need to get an early start tomorrow so I can’t fit anything in. Continue reading

18 September 2011 – the finish line

20130302-213656

Well I made it to 14 days. Had a bit of an odd one today. No real exercise although I did plan some. I had a call late this morning from my good friend Frankie. She had some free tickets to the match this afternoon and wants me to go with her. The roast I’d planned had to be ditched and we had paninis instead because Commando had to go to work at 4 and kick off was three. Continue reading
