Getting well-known at the tip

Breakfast: Porridge with salt and honey.

Snack: Praline croissant from Paul.

Lunch: 2 boiled eggs with 2 slices of buttered toast.

Drinks: Coffee.

Wisdom: New motto is ‘Strong not Slim’. I’m swapping 15 pull-ups for weight loss in my Tokens list.

Wisdom 2: Got some heavy weights in from the garage. Will put them in the living room so more likely to remember to use them.

Every time I have a day tidying, I say it should never happen again. Need more frequent tip runs.


Auto Belaying

Had the best fun ever by auto belaying at the climbing centre. You have to throw yourself off! Nearly bottled it. Massive rush.

Breakfast: All bran.

Lunch: Cheese and branston pickle sandwich.

Fruit: Apple.

Mints: 2.

Dinner: Carbonara.

Wisdom: 3 meals per day and one treat plus 2 mints. I’m going to try to stick to this today! Might not even have the treat.

Alcohol: Accidentally sipped on some cider as it was in the fridge in a sparkling water bottle.

Wisdom 2: No alcohol today! Will get more tidying done tomorrow. Need to take a before picture of the garage.

Alcohol: I did end up drinking. Had cider and white wine.

Exercise: Did about 15 negative pull-ups.


Breakfast: Porridge with seeds and honey.

Lunch: Pate sandwich.

Mints: 2.

Snack: Tunnock’s caramel wafer biscuit. Some minstrels. Was putting off tidying.

Drinks: Tiny amount of hot chocolate down the pub when reading Roadcraft. Swapped it for a black coffee as grim.

Wisdom: I need to look back over my blog from when I was thin (10st2) and get some tips. This is really scary for some reason.

Wisdom 2: If I drink slowly tonight (only drink when someone’s name is mentioned), I’ll buy myself ‘From Pig Pen to Paradise’ on the Kindle. (I’ve lost the book and can’t bloody find it.)

Fruit: Apple.

Dinner: Carbonara.

Alcohol: Shared a bottle of champagne with B and half a small bottle of cider.

New Plan (Tuesday)

The prospect of a shopping trip in Reading just wasn’t motivating me.

The new plan is that I’ll have a massage with Nicole when I next get 20 tokens.

Ways to get one token:

30m working on my new hobby.
No eating + reading or watching a screen
Max 3 planned meals and 1 treat.
Weight lost.
1 unf*ck your habitat + 15m tidying + 5m decluttering + 1 washload.
Getting 6 success points at work.
No alcohol

If I miss a day’s blogging, my tokens get set to 0 again.

Breakfast: About 45g of All Bran with milk.

Lunch: Small mission burritto.

Wisdom: Once I can do a pull up, I’m going to get a dumbbell. I’ve been inspired by Staci’s story on NerdFitness.

Wisdom 2: Pick up more vegetables for a stir fry tonight.

Snack: 1.5 Belgian Chocolate & Sea Salted caramel scrolls. Waste of calories.

Mini snack: Salad with dressing.

Dinner: Stir fry with brown rice.

Mints: 2.

Exercise: 6 negative pull ups. (One commando one.)

Drinks: Teas. Coffees. Considering cutting down on the caffeine.

Starting my tokens again (Wednesday)

The day off plan wasn’t working, so my new reward is a shopping trip in Reading one night when I must buy at least one new item of clothing. This has to be done within two weeks of achieving 30 tokens.

Breakfast: Porridge with honey and salt.

Lunch: Tuna mayo with 5 crackers.

Mints: 2.

Exercise: 5 mile bike ride.

Dinner: 2 boiled eggs and 2 slices of buttered toast.

Snack: Some minstrels. Small amount of yoghurt.

Extra snack: Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries with crème fraiche, granola and honey.

Comment 1: Make sandwiches the night before so less rushed in the morning.

Comment 2: Exercise as soon as I get home otherwise it doesn’t happen.


Resetting my tokens (Sunday)

As I missed several days of blogging, my tokens have been reset. I need 50 tokens to book a day off. Currently on zero.

Exercise: About 5 miles cycle.

Breakfast: Lush praline croissant from Paul’s.

Drinks: Teas. Coffees.

Wisdom 1: I’ve signed up for the NerdFitness newsletter. (I had signed up before, but it was to an old email account I rarely use.)

Wisdom 2: I’ve requested to join the NerdFitness Academy on Facebook.

Lunch: Lamb pitta with houmus, yoghurt and salad.

Snack: Lolly.

Extra snack: Half an almond croissant.

Fruit: Apple.

Dinner: Same as lunch but slight smaller.
