March 2014 Round-up

Another month has slipped away, which means it has to be time for the ever-popular monthly report: the post that saves you reading the rest of my nonsense.


More random fluctuation this month:

March 3: 222.8 pounds (15 stone 12.8 pounds, 101.1 kg) (I was away the first couple of days)
March 31: 217.3 pounds (15 stone 7.3 pounds, 98.6 kg)

That’s a quite noticeable drop of 5.5 pounds (2.5kg), which beats last month’s effort.


Generally being quite good, especially at lunchtime. Oh, and I’m drinking less wine, which might account for something or other…


Lots of walking while I was in Manchester, and four quite reasonable weekend walks.


This report brings the monthly total to 42, which is, of course, the perfect number.


I’m working on learning to play my guitar. More on that at some point…

Weight and Stuff Report – 31 March 2014

Back up again today, but still in a better position than I’ve been for a while.

Today’s photo is one of the preserved cannon to be found at Carlisle Castle. I was informed by a guide that they’re pointing towards Scotland in case they fancy taking over the city again…
