May 2014 Round-up

Another month has slipped away into obscurity, which can only mean it’s time for the post that saves you reading the rest of my nonsense.


More random fluctuation this month…

May 1: 219.2 pounds (15 stone 9.2 pounds, 99.4 kg)
May 31: 217.3 pounds (15 stone 7.3 pounds, 98.6 kg)

That’s a fall of 1.9 pounds (0.9kg). I have been lighter at various points in the month, but the general trend is int he right direction…


Well, with two trips away (a short one to Leeds and a long one to Bristol and Wales), there may have been some additional eating involved. On the other hand, with the occasional lapse, I have been reducing the wine consumption, which should help…


Being away in Leeds and Bristol did cause some additional walking, but other than that I haven’t done a lot…


This month’s total is 35, which is low enough to make this site look very quiet. It may stay that way for a while…


Not a lot else to say for May.

Weight and Stuff Report – 31 May 2014

Ho hum, up a bit today.

After two weekends away (Leeds and Wales, for those not paying attention, or with worse memories than mine[1]), it was back to my normal Saturday routine today. After a bit of a lie in (past 8am!), I got up, had some coffee and caught up with things before heading out to breakfast at Frankie & Benny’s, where the espresso was plentiful and the food delicious. I then did exciting things like the shopping and putting the washing on before going to work. Yes, work. Last night, we had to shut down all our servers to allow for electrical testing, and once that was done, we had to start them all up again, so I went in for about three hours to make sure everything was up and running. Fun. Sort of.

Anyway, today’s photo is of Porthcawl’s lighthouse[2]:
