Summer is Coming!

It’s another beautiful day, the clocks have already sprung forward and it really does start to feel as if summer is on its way! Sadly, in spite of my best intentions, I have not made much of an impact with my ‘shaping up for summer’ plan.

Superheroes

There’s a song in my head. Honestly there are zillions of songs in my head but this one keeps replaying. You may know it? “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. The words are: “I get knocked down But I get up again”

To weigh, or not to weigh?

To weigh, or not to weigh? That is the question. Is it better for the mind to be in blissful ignorance Of any excess poundage, or should I bite the bullet and Check the weight gain wrought by last night’s fish and chips?

Osteoporosis and staying active

It seemed like most of my waking hours had to be spent weighing, chopping and slicing the ingredients, and, reluctantly, I had to accept that the level of labour intensity was beyond me at the moment.
Osteoporosis and staying active   Oh dear – the Sirtfood experiment was a bit of a failure!  Mainly because of me and my inability to stand for too long without my back… http://essexweighsin.co.uk/blog/osteoporosis-and-staying-active/

Humbug! New Year’s resolutions a distant memory?
