Morning chums

Excellent parkrunning Onesie! Are you hooked now? will you be there every week? A couple of my friends did their first park run yesterday - absolutely convinced it was going to take them over an hour and they'd be last - needless to say it didn't, and they weren't walked most of it and are now planning to do the couch to 5k

As for me... er... I haven't run all year...

Off for a nice walk somewhere today though, and the sun does actually appear to be shining so a good start!

Back to be more sociable later - should really get out of bed...

Gosh a few hugs needed round here! ((((()))))

Glad they reinstated your pre-op Tubs. Very vexing to have things cancelled at short notice but especially when you're not exactly round the corner from the hospital!!

An evening of solitary tidying for me tonight. Been at work all wee and Mr Daffs glum and also has a sore knee, hacking cough, rotten stomach and now is dizzy too. All seemingly unrelated, hospital yesterday so has meds for various things but not exactly in full on tidying mode!! He's out playing a gig tonight (for work) so I'm taking the opportunity to make the place look lived in!

Slimming World does indeed only work if you stick to it! I got down to target last September (you stop paying once you get to target as long as you stay there!) - but then went back up again and having paid an extra few weeks without being able to shift it (because I wasn't sticking to it at all!) I ended up leaving. 

Put an entire stone back on in the following 3 months 

I'd like to think one day I'll learn, or be able to maintain a steady weight without outside help, but the evidence so far suggests that isn't the case Fortunately I have quite a low tolerance of my own podginess, so I rarely put on more than about 1.5 stone before I march myself back off to lose it again. Just aiming for 1stone this time!

I've rejoined Slimming World coco - left in October and put a stone back on since then  So easy to do! 

Tsk Jenni, Podds is right - get out there anyway! (mind you, I didn't follow that advice when my own garmin ran out before the marathon!)

Well done for your mentee Podds, that's ace news VERY frustrating not to be able to tell him though!

Well raked chuggy  

We have a good 4 inches of snow here and it's still going. I'm feckin FREEZING and just don't seem to be able to get warm - got a giant woolly cardi, fingerless gloves, hot water bottle, thermal socks and 2 electric heaters and contemplating wrapping myself in a blanket but feel that may be even less conducive to working than my current arrangement! Brrrr. 

Going to meeting tonight but will NOT be driving - definitely wearing thermal socks though, don't want any more chilblains!

meldy's right tubs - nowt you can do about it this far ahead! have a hug (((())))) in fact why not hug Podds? sounds like she needs it!

I'm such a plonker - just missed my train home too!! Flippin eck. Actually on a train now but going to have to spend a second 25 minutes in the freezing waiting room at doncaster - never a good experience let alone twice in one day!

Good luck with FC6 DL Can't think of anywhere i'd rather spend my 16th than with you two

well runned the runners!

No such impressive activities from me this morning.- lay in bed messing about on the internet and missed the train to work! Idiot. mind you, i might still have made it if some idiot hadn't pulled his 4x4 the wrong way into a bike lane right in front of me. Idiot spotted me once he'd done it (i mean, i was a tiny bit invisible in my bright pink neon coat and flashing lights) - and then pulled back out into the road without looking and only narrowly missed hittin another car.

I'll be surprised if he makes it to teatime - and he's probably blaming everyone else for it!

Well done you indeed!

And awwww at Chuggy being romanced

All vile here. Raging toothache kept me awake til 1am, then Mr Daffs woke me up raging at neighbours who had woken him up at 4.15 They didn't actually go to bed til about 6, stomping up and down the stairs, having loud conversations in bedrooms (third time this week after 2am!) - and then the roofers for the other house arrived at 8 and have had the feckin radio on ever since

Mr Daffs has gone out, I'm trying not to strangle the people who are now installing a feckin skip outside my kitchen window, and feeling VERY grateful for a friend who's letting us stay in her cottage in the dales for a few days!

Mind you, that's a terrace too...

Can we start Wednesday again please?

Some good waister plodding already this year!

Not from me, although I am super excited at getting back on foldy bike (with shiny new bag) for trip to and from station for work 10 miles of leisurely cycling in between trains over the day

Or rather 2.5 miles of downhill whizzing in the dark, two lots of nice flat 2.5 miles along the river, then 2.5 miles of unweildy uphill puffing and panting at the end
