June 2016 Round-up

OK, that’s half of 2016 over and done with. There are a load of things I could say about the year so far, but I’d only end up frothing at the mouth and breaking my keyboard, so I won’t.

Weight

More movement in a downward direction…

June 1: 223.2 pounds (15 stone 13.2 pounds, 101.2 kg)
June 30: 220.8 pounds (15 stone 10.8 pounds, 100.2 kg)

That’s an actual drop of  2.4 pounds or 1.1kg, and I can’t let the lurgy take the credit this time.

Eating

Still doing a little less of that, and shock horror sensation hold the front page, drinking less wine.

Exercise

Some walking, most noticeably in Cardiff last week. Was it only a week ago I was in Wales? Seems much longer somehow…

Posting

It’s been a quiet month, with this report bringing the total to 39.

Stuff

 

Hmmm, been on holiday, took lots of photos, came back.

Weight and Stuff Report – 30 June 2016

Up another teeny bit today.

It was nice and sunny this morning, so I took the X-T1 with the 140-400mm lens and that new 2x teleconverter to work. So quite naturally, it had turned dull and grey by lunchtime. But I went out anyway to do a little test. Here’s a straight out of the camera JPG:
