  • @jugar @ashleycarole86 I'd like to go on the support team (weight and steps) for a couple of weeks please. Will confirm when I'm jumping back in to normal. I'll catch up on posts tomorrow, hope everyone has had a good weekend.
  • @Gidgitgoescrazy that sounds frightening. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. @MoonlitMuse I don't actually like tea, or coffee! Neither does my mum or sister, I think we're considered a bit weird lol. I did try fruit teas for a while but dislike the bitter taste. I use 'tea' and 'dinner' interchangeably to mean the…
  • Your home breakages sound frustrating @conleywoods - at least like you say practically everything will be brand new soon! I am in a better mindset this morning, although I did not sleep well at all. Tossing and turning all night. It's a good job my training is at 6am because it doesn't give me the option of cancelling last…
  • @jugar I don't think potatoes are particularly fussy. They're supposed to be a good 'first' in an area, because they help to break up the ground for you. I did add some fertiliser with them. We'll see what happens. That's a beautiful orchid @conleywoods. I am throwing a pity party for one this evening. It's been a really…
  • @jugar PW 85.8 CW 86.8 Lots of fluctuating around this 86 at the moment. At some point my head will get - and stay - in the game.

  • I'm gutted I missed the Zoom call yesterday - stupidly I hadn't put it in my calendar and we were out and about. I shall do better next month and hope those of you that joined had a good natter. This morning we planted the first potatoes in the allotment. I have my doubts about whether they're going to be successful but I…
  • Chase the handstand @ashleycarole86! We were working on them in the 'throw legs up and catch yourself' kind of way, but I'd prefer the more controlled lift from a plank like that. @kellie_erin I am glad your first day went ok even if you were low on sleep. @jugar super cute! @lauren_989 @conleywoods yes it feels like a…
  • @micki48 you had me worried for a moment there with the elephant ears :D @jugar I could make a call Saturday evening! It's back to work for me today after a very busy weekend. I would much rather be down the allotment, even in the rain lol. Alas, there are bills to pay. This is how it started: And this is how I left it…
  • PW: 85 CW: 85.8 We had a really salty takeaway curry last night - I downed a litre of water afterwards and still felt thirsty - and I've done loads of digging this weekend so putting it down to water retention and not overindulgence. ;)
  • @ashleycarole86 - steps Sun 24th - 6147 Mon 25th - 9696 Tues 26th - 2826 Weds 27th - 10519 Thurs 28th - 13259 Fri 29th - 8888 Sat 30th - 5988 @ells_bellz I hope your son is doing OK this afternoon. I spent a couple of hours at the allotment yesterday morning, and again today. One of the long-standing tenants took me under…
  • I'm Katie, 34, living near Nottingham UK with my husband and our two cats. I've been overweight since my early 20s, lost almost 15kg with MFP last year but put about 10kg back on over winter and have been trying to get back on track. I work full time from home with a desk based job, and OH now works as a police officer -…
  • I hope those who are feeling under the weather are on the mend soon. We had a good walk last night - went to the shopping outlet for a (diet) soft drink, which is about 45 minutes each way. It's nice to head in a different direction, and we passed through the woods on the way past where there was the most incredible carpet…
  • It's a bit cold here today too @jugar. Has been overcast which doesn't help. I'm walking with a friend after work. We were supposed to run but I've had a hectic week workwise, including today, and I don't think I can face it. I will see if she wants to run in the morning, though, as I do need to test the water. I have…
  • Welcome @sophsjw I went over on my calories yesterday and it showed on the scales today. Mostly just because Tuesday is a hungry day after getting up so early and training first thing, though we were also having KFC for tea (pre-planned). I don't think MFP allows for higher calories on one day than the rest of the week…
  • @jugar I think my chiro is very similar to an osteopath (as opposed to the chiro I used to see), but I haven't seen one specifically. I find it's enough to keep me ticking over and usually just a nice massage these days, then I get the brutal sports massage from C on a weekly basis if needed. As long as there's nothing…
  • @micki48 @ashleycarole86 I don't want to use another tracking app either! Hopefully they'll be able to tell us when the outage will be and how long they expect it to be down for. I figure if I pre-track my days and screenshot them, then I just have to stick to my planned food. As somebody who works in the software…
  • PW: 86.5kg CW: 85kg @jugar @conleywoods I am jealous of your gardens ready to go! I don't have time to get down there today but I want to plan the layout on the PC first anyway, and then I'll go down in an evening and start marking out the beds to see how it would look in real life. It has been recommended that we begin…
  • Welcome back @YinxFed! @conleywoods that sounds super interesting and I am glad that your husband is keen to help you. @ashleycarole86 Sunday 17th - 2618 Monday 18th - 15580 Tuesday 19th - 5238 Wednesday 20th - 11667 Thursday 21st - 10019 Friday 22nd - 12642 Saturday 23rd - 13487 I was so busy on Sunday and Tuesday that I…
  • Today started well, but I've just heard some sad news from a co-worker and now I feel a little blue! It's overcast but when I finish work I shall go for a walk and that will cheer me up - there are ducklings at the Wharf now. I didn't eat the Creme Egg last night, though I did eat up to my calorie goal. I also moved the…
  • That's brilliant @ashleycarole86 - you must feel fantastic. I'm sorry to hear about your mom's treatment @eggfreak. A couple of days to sit with that seems completely reasonable to me. @Gidgitgoescrazy I am not a mushroom fan either, so a supplement could well be of interest! I'm also noticing a correlation between good…
  • @PlaneMonkey I hope your neck is feeling better today. For me, starting/doing it now, instead of putting it off. No 'waiting until Monday' or 'just one more..'. I could find reasons to procrastinate indefinitely if I allowed myself to do so! As soon as I start seeing the number dropping on the scales my motivation is up…

  • PW 85 CW 86.5 I will be glad to give up chocolate again, I think. I started each day with good intentions but it hasn't taken long at all for those to fall by the wayside. I've also moved less, despite the weather being good, due to being busy at work. We tried a new recipe in the air fryer last night which was paprika…
  • @eggfreak the original 2019 nectarine grew a fruit, but it never got to a reasonable size and the tree was too young to fruit properly so it was unexpected anyway. The graft (nectarine) failed last year but the rootstock survived; luckily I had procrastinated on taking it to the tip and it was growing away in the dark. I…
  • @conleywoods I adore your hair; it looks so healthy <3 @planemonkey the boat sounds amazing, the WFH situation sounds rubbish! @ashleycarole86 we're going out tomorrow; an escape room in the Nottingham caves (yep, actual caves! If you're 6'3" or taller they give you a hard hat lol) then food at a good burger place.…
  • @MoonlitMuse I hope you find time to take care of yourself too, and fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for your fiancé. I'm assuming the vaccinations were for the puppy so it should be fine! I did not get stir fry for tea yesterday because it was not ready before I had to leave for my physio appointment - had a pasta…
  • @jugar PW: 85.2 CW: 85kg A small loss, but it was higher (85.9!) during the week! Naughty DD265. Am back on the wagon now anyhow and the tempting cupcakes are gone. :# @ashleycarole86 Sunday 3rd - 6278 Monday 4th - 9514 Tuesday 5th - 2560 Wednesday 6th - 9465 Thursday 7th - 7523 Friday 8th - 11975 Saturday 9th - 10296 Your…
  • @ashleycarole86 @jugar thank you! It's the first time the buttercream has turned out well - normally it looks awful and I end up smoothing it with a knife. Borrowed a friends piping nozzle (bigger than mine) and it made all the difference. The glace ones are nice enough but not that much lower in calories, so I'll probably…
  • You should do some baking @jugar! I maybe don't relish the 3 hours it took to make 36 cupcakes (including time in the oven when I was washing up etc) but always enjoy the results! 24 pretty lemon drizzle cupcakes have gone into OH's work for his birthday. The 'rejects' have stayed home with me. :D I ate one yesterday,…
