August 2009 Round-up

Oh dearie me, it all seems to have gone wrong again this month, doesn’t it?


August 1: 213.4 pounds (15 stone 3.4 pounds, 96.8 kg)
August 31: 218.8 pounds (15 stone 8.8 pounds, 99.2 kg)
Difference: A quite annoying rise of 5.4 pounds (2.4 kg). I haven’t quite got back to where I was at the end of June, but it’s not far from that.


Apart from the odd over-indulgent evening, and a few nice lunches, I’ve been sticking to the plan. Well, apart from maybe drinking a wee bit more wine…


Hmmm. Not so good. Out of 20 working days in August, I walked to work four times and walked home 2.5 times. I did have some quite long weekend walks earlier in the month, though. My problem at the moment is that I seem to have a dodgy tendon thingy, which is making walking any distance a bit of a trial…

I’ll try to do better in September.


I calmed down a bit this month, and what with less Twittering and missing a few weight reports, the total for this month will be a relatively sane 59.


I managed a couple of days out this month to places I hadn’t been to before, which was good. I’m going to set myself a target of doing something similar at least twice in September. Nothing particularly dramatic, but I fancy a return visit to the National Railway Museum in York for a start…
