It has been a really lovely week here in Gran Canaria. I haven't been as good as I usually am (vino tinto in the sunshine being my achilles heel), but I haven't been awful either. I've eaten more than I do at home, sure, but I've been pleased ... Read more

Yep. That's the song that's stuck in my head today. "A-shake-shake-shake, shake-shake-shake, shake your booty, shake your booty..." Round and round my head it is going, on a loop. It's quite amusing. And also bemusing. ... Read more
A little frustrating

So, I know the scales are only part of the equation, but when I stepped onto them this morning, I must admit to feeling a little down. You see, I seem to have stalled at 233. That's a pretty big place to stall, and it's disheartening to be a p... Read more

That's one of my goals which I track here on SP. And I have to say, it's been a learning curve. For so much of my life, the go-to reward was food - the box of chocolates, the bottle of wine, the takeout for dinner. Like anyone with a ... Read more

I've mentioned before that there are a lot of people with egos and attirude (I meant to type 'attitude', but actually I think 'attirude' covers it far better!) at my gym - as well as countless lovely souls and normal folk. I've been verba... Read more

240 (Aide memoire)
Sunday, January 30, 2011      4 comments

I took these pictures way back at the start of January, when I had just started out. This is me at 240. I'm putting them here to remind myself *why* I'm doing this. I look big, and uncomfortable, and unhealthy. ... Read more
