11 Stone 7 Pounds

February 19, 2009

So here we are, another couple of pounds towards my goal 🙂

Just 1 more pound and I’ve taken off a stone, how good is that? Well, it certainly feels good. I think I can tell the difference already, my waist has certainly lost a little, I’ve had to move to the next hole on my belt buckle 🙂 I could be wrong but I also feel like my throat area (cant bring myself to say wattle!) is feeling tauter.

I do however, see a (silver) cloud on the horizon. On Saturday we are going to Benidorm for a few days of R&R, returning on Wednesday. Dont get me wrong, I’m really looking forward to the holiday, its just what I need given all the recent worry about work. The cloud I’m referring to is of course, the All-Inclusive hotel we will be staying at! I just need to convince myself that making only one trip to the buffet per meal is perfectly ok 🙂

I’m working on a holiday mantra, “just one plate of food, what a good boy you are, just one plate of food, what a good boy you are…..”

*PS. I’m experimenting with posting this by email, hope it shows up ok 🙂

Just a quickie, I couldn’t resist sharing this one with you all 🙂


The Tiempo concession stall in the Meadowhall shopping mall where, despite the urgency of the signs, the sale is still running one week later 🙂

11 Stone 9 Pounds

February 15, 2009

I was getting a little dis-heartened last week so on Thursday I really went for it, eating only a 65 calorie cuppa soup for lunch and cutting back on my evening meal. On Friday I did the cuppa soup again, in the evening we ordered in Indian food so I had to really restrain myself!

On Saturday morning I was tipping the scales at 10 stones 8, however this morning (Sunday) I was back at 10 stone 9, so thats the headline for today.

In summary, I’m still heading in the right direction and not nearly finished yet!

PS. I had a haircut today so that might be another pound lost 🙂

Yay! Go Me, another 2 pounds.

Havent got a lot planned for the weekend so maybe a few hours on our new Wii will help me burn off a few more calories 🙂

I was thinking of detailing my daily food intake on here but that would probably be bordering on the obsessive. Wouldnt it?

Fixed my phone

Go me!

The Internet is wonderful isnt it? I was able to order the part I needed and save myself a big bill for repair or replacement of my phone.

The video down there is me showing off the broken ribbon cable alongside the working phone. I wish I’d taken some photos of me stripping the phone down. Twas fairly straightforward and learning as you guess what to do next is always fun 🙂

The best thing? It only cost me 4 quid!

I *heart* the “net” I really do.

Yay! Fixed my phone 🙂 on 12seconds.tv

Imminent failure (finally) prompts action

February 3, 2009

Seriously, I’m so lazy sometimes. You can just make out a hard drive hanging out of the open case, which I might admit has been open like that for 2 weeks.

The drive itself was bought 1 year ago (I know!) and I only just got around to installing it when another drive informed me it was going to fail soon.

Finally getting round to sorting out my hard drives on 12seconds.tv

So after 2 weeks of looking at the bits hanging out, I’ve finally sorted them.

Go me! Errr, yeah right 😉

Things are looking good, I lost a few more pounds despite a heavy weekend.

On Saturday we had dinner at the Chinese buffet, it was my only meal of the day so that was ok.

I also had a few beers but my plan is to eat less but carry on drinking anyway 🙂
