January 2013 Round-up

Well, that’s the first month of the year out of the way, so it must be time[1] for the usual summary thingy.


No problem with being away at the wrong time this month, so we have proper figures:

January 1: 221 pounds (15 stone 11 pounds, 100.2 kg)
January 31 : 220 pounds (15 stone 10 pounds, 99.8 kg)

That’s a drop of one whole pound, or about half a kilogram, which isn’t very impressive, and is probably more to do with daily fluctuations than an actual reduction.


I will confess that on some colder days I’ve added a pastry-related item to my lunchtime sandwich. But mostly not.


I seem to have walked to work twice, and walked home once, which is slightly[2] below my target. Must do better, etc.


This has been a quiet month on the babble front, with a moderately low total of 47, including this one.


Lots of work stuff kept me occupied this month, and the snow stopped me getting out as much as I’d have liked…

Weight and Stuff Report – 31 January 2013

What’s this? Down again today? How shocking!

Having been working every day since last Monday, fatigue was definitely getting the better of me today, which involved another late finish due to having to move more furniture and computers around. Still, day off tomorrow. :bouncy: [1]
