May 2012 Round-up

As May comes to a soggy end, it’s time for the usual compilation post thingy.

Weight

May 1: 216.4 pounds (15 stone 6.4 pounds, 98.2 kg)
May 31: 219.4 pounds (15 stone 9.4 pounds, 99.5 kg)

OK, that’s a somewhat annoying rise of 3 pounds (1.4kg), but, and it’s a big but[1], it’s a quite impressive 5 pounds (2.3kg) less than I weighed at one point this month. So that’s bad and good. Or something.

Eating

While I generally avoided the sausage rolls, I did get tempted by other evil savouries, which might account for the mid-month bulge mentioned above. Since my return from Bristol, I’ve been better behaved, and I’ll try to keep that up in June.

Exercise

This month I walked to work a grand total of not at all, with an equal score for walking home. I managed a few walks, with a logged total of just 14 miles, which isn’t a lot by recent standards. Must do better, etc.

Posting

I’ve been a bit quiet this month – this report brings the May total to 39, which is well below average.

Stuff

I had another trip to Bristol and another weekend in Wales, woo hoo!

Weight and Stuff Report – 31 May 2012

Up just a touch today, but never mind. So there. Or something.

Hey, guess what? The rain came back! It seems to have rained on and off for most of the day (and indeed pretty much all of the morning, while I was at an event high in the rafters[1] of some local sports stadium thingy[2])

Today’s picture is one of my more successful attempts at catching a bird in flight. Lots of detail in this one, which has been cropped down.

[2] Sport was not involved, of course
