September 2008 Round-up

What? September over already? Is it really time for another of my regular series of enthralling month-end reports that you can read instead of the rest of the nonsense I post here? Well, here goes:


September 1: 216.8 pounds (15 stone 6.8 pounds, 98.3 kg)
September 30: 216.4 pounds (15 stone 6.4 pounds, 98.2 kg)
Difference: An almost negligible fall of 0.4 pounds (0.2 kg), but in my defence I will say that I started the month a pound down on the end of August, and I was lighter yesterday. Curse those random fluctuations!


Err, yes, well. Still eating too much most lunchtimes. I really should stop that, as I’m sure it would help…


Out of 21 working days this year, I walked to work 20 times, and walked home[1] 14 times, which is a massive improvement on recent months. And I did a fair bit of walking on some of the non-working days, too.


I pulled out of the posting dip a bit this month – including this report, I’ve made 62 posts this month, meeting my mental[2] target of an average of two posts a day.


I managed to get out with the camera a bit this month, after managing to take no pictures at all in August. I still have some to sort out and post, so watch out for those. Meanwhile, work is continuing on my flat. More about that to come, too…

[1] Well, to temporary home, that is. It’s about the same distance as to my own place. But more effort on the mornings I go to collect my mail, as this involves a slightly steep hill. A long steep hill.
[2] Yes, yes, jokes on a postcard, etc :drool: :dizzy:


As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been to have a look at the work being done on my flat. I’ll have some more pictures to put on show later, but here’s one to be going on with, which shows the layers of wallpaper that were holding up the kitchen wall…



Time for some redecoration

That mosaic effect was probably quite the thing at whatever time it was put up, but it must have made the room seem very dark.

Weight Report – 28 September 2008

Hmm. No change today.

I had a bit of a walk earlier, to have a look at progress on the redevelopment of Losing it[1] HQ. It’s looking very bare at the moment. Pictures may follow, when my tuit supply improves.

The incredible shrinking sidebar

If you happened to visit Losing it[1] between yesterday afternoon and about now, you might have noticed a slight absence of the sidebar. :eek:

This was caused by me making a mess of setting up what should have been a nifty new feature :oops: . I’ll do some more testing on a test site before I try that again! :dizzy:

Weight Report – 27 September 2008

A small rise today, but nothing to be concerned about.

Well, here we are at the end of September, and today Summer finally arrived. Yes, it was a quite warm and sunny day of the kind we haven’t seen many of this year, so after my usual Saturday trip to Tesco’s I took a walk with my camera. Results of that will follow soon. Soon-ish, anyway…
