The Heavy Man

I have been somewhat in awe if this chap http://theheavymansdiary.blogspot.com/ and his sheer determination and focus over the past 3 months.
He is following the WW plan which is a great plan. I dug out my books and will try to combine clean eating and the plan.
Today will be busy getting Bette ready for another adventure, ironing, shopping etc.
Lots of Dolly walks too to keep us happy.
I'm going to do the Fetchathon for September, and Doug starts his course soon too, so the Doodmeister will need a walk before we leave!

Onwards and upwards

not so good


Not a great weekend as far as clean eating goes, but no-one said it was going to be plain sailing!

B: Wholemeal toast with low fat cream cheese
L: 4 oatcakes with cottage cheese and cucmber
LM: Apple and a few cashew nuts
D: Pork chops in red wine with apple trimmed of all fat, sweet potato and peas.
LM: Strawberries

Went out for a thermal walk after breakfast.

Gotta try harder than this though. I'm just waiting for Lal to come round with my bike which I shall be out on in the mornings for a 20 min spin after work, and a 20 min dawdle with el Mutt after breakfast.

Still of the fags though which is good......but .....um.....feeling meh!

clean eats


Clean eating mostly;

B: Wholemeal toast and Houmous for breakfast
L: Ham and couscous salad with toms, cuc and spring onions, and a creme fraiche dressing for lunch.
D: then out with Lal tonight.
I did manage to scoff a couple of licorice allsorts on the way round too!!!!

I will be weighing in on a Thursday night, and after the holiday, I'm opening up Lard Loungers to the general public! All my old memebers are returning for the autumn. holidays over, and time to pop the slo-cooker on with great stews and lots of home grown veg.

Feeling good

Ok, so here we are......day 46 of not smoking. I haven't put any weight on this time which is a blessing, however, the few pounds I lost...I found again.

I've been inspired to blog my journey with photos, but not the belly hanging out ones.... too graphic.

I'll get D to photograph moi over the weekend, and I'll keep them for a couple of weeks until I decide what to do!

So, six months until my 44th birthday.

So much has changed in the last year, and mostly for the better. This could be another big change, and i have plans for one more HUGE change, but you'll have to wait for that one!
