July 2010 Round-up

Here we go again with the only slightly late round up for July 2010.


Apart from when I was away in Wales, I continued to not forget to weigh myself, so I think I’m more or less right on that now…

July 1: 230.6 pounds (16 stone 6.6 pounds, 104.6 kg)
July 31: 230.4 pounds (16 stone 6.4 pounds, 104.5 kg)

Difference: An insignificant drop of 0.2 pounds (0.1 kg)


Well, a lot of eating did go on while I was away. Restaurants, pub meals, that kind of thing. But since I’ve been back at work, I’ve been mostly good at lunchtime, with only the occasional diversion to Greggs. I might possibly have had a few more glasses of wine than average this month, but I’m working on that.


There was a fair bit of walking in Wales, the usual longish walk at the airshow, but only a couple of instances of walking to work. Tut tut, must to better, etc.


Still at normal levels – the July total, including this one will be 67.


Thanks to a holiday in Wales and the airshow, I seem to have taken over 1600 pictures in July, some of which will appear here eventually. That’s slightly more than in the first six months of the year, by the way.

And back up again today. Mutter.

Today’s picture is of one of the Sunderland airshow regulars – an F-16 from the Royal Netherlands Airforce. The usual orange display aircraft was unavailable, but to make up for the lack of brightness in the colour scheme, the pilot fired his flares:

Flares are back again

Last year, that wasn’t allowed due to some safety regulation or other. Fortunately, sanity returned this time.
