Weight and Stuff Report – 4 July 2014

Weight: 213.4 pounds (15 stone 3.4 pounds, 96.8 kg)
Steps taken: 8,423

What’s this? Down again today? Not only is that a new low for this year, but it’s a teeny tiny bit lower than my lowest weight of last year, lower than any time in 2012, 2011or 2010. In fact, you’d have to go back to the middle of 2009 to find a lower weight.[1] So I think I’ll congratulate myself, or something.

Today being Friday, I decided to do my normal Saturday things – breakfast at Frankie & Benny’s, shopping in Tesco, then a trip into Newcastle to do some unexciting clothes shopping. Though I may have bought something else while I was out.

Today’s photos are fun things seen in Cardiff. First, I’m not at all sure that this is a good idea:

I’m not sure I’d trust a cat with my hair…

And the fairytale tower of Cardiff Castle looks rather nice from this angle:

And finally, I like this angle on the sculpture outside Cardiff Library. A nice wide view using the 10-24mm lens:
