Picnics in the cold, and a tin of tuna

Picnics in the cold, and a tin of tuna

Went to Glyndebourne yesterday, with the friend I go to see the live transmissions with. No, not the posh, picnic in the garden type. Very expensive! We went to see the youth group do a modern opera called Nothing. It was distinctively modern. The singing was...
Another weigh in report – hope I’m not boring you!

Another weigh in report – hope I’m not boring you!

weigh in report Well, another Monday, another weigh in and measure. I stayed the same weight, but I have lost half an inch off both my waist and hips, so very pleased about that 🙂 My favourite trousers are so baggy now, I’m going to have to take them in. Good...

Fiery Potatoes, spicy and delicious

Had a little play in the kitchen today. I have a great many cook books and I’m always looking through them. Sometimes, as I did last night, I’ll take one down from the book shelf and go through from cover to cover, making a note as I go of any recipe I...

Buying books

Didn’t go to the gym this evening. Didn’t go yesterday either! Yesterday I went down to Bexhill and spent most of the day with my daughter, which was lovely. Got back in time to go to the gym, but had to do other things. So thought I’d go tomorrow...

60% fat and vanilla extract

First day of my new workouts today. I thought if I started the week on a Sunday, I might even get to do those five sessions that my coach asked. It was very intense, very hard work, and took 2.5 hours, and I felt amazing afterwards. Weight seems to be moving at last...

A Too Busy Week

a too busy week What a busy week it was this week! A too busy week really. I am trying to cut back on things I do so I have more time to spend with new husband, and of course gardening season will soon be upon us. On Monday there was the filming that I spoke about...
Three week review and too much temptation

Three week review and too much temptation

Back at the gym Had my three week review at the gym this morning. I had lost 1lb on the scales up there. Wasn’t even expecting that to be honest. Alex, my coach, went through everything. He examined in great detail the report I had printed off from myFitnessPal...

Filming, working out and power cuts

A bit of filming Did another little bit of filming this morning. I wrote three posts for the Guiness Partnership. The last one being on Valentine’s, which is what they wanted to film – a little bit of talking, and making the main course. The  Valentines...
