I have been bitten 3 times on my leg* , which has resulted in my right foot swelling up to twice the size of my left foot. Slightly alarmed by this and on advice from the Tesco pharmacist I went on a rare visit to the docs. Apparently I have Superficial Thrombophlebitis – what a

I always listen to Radio 2 drive time show on my way home from work and I particularly love a Thursday when they have a section with their chef Nigel. Last Thursday they were talking about recipes that Nigel had cooked from a book by Gurpareet Bains who has written recipes that focus on the

4 weeks in and I must remember Skinny Rule 18

Share Button

I am 4 weeks in to my challenge today and I started today feeling a bit fed-up and grouchy. I didn’t log any calories yesterday for the first time since I started my weight loss challenge of 12 pounds in 12 weeks. I just couldn’t be bothered, I just wanted a break from logging every

Jamie Oliver’s Chargrilled Tuna with oregano oil, peas and broad beans

I said that I would post the recipe for this dish too. It is a recipe from the same cookbook as the Black ‘Cod’ was – Jamie Oliver’s ‘Cook with Jamie’ Mr L cooked this and it was very good. It is fairly Olive Oil heavy and using as little as we could get away

I haven’t blogged about running for ages, so, this is a blog about running. After the marathon I said that the next goal was to get faster over shorter distances – and then I’ve done very little about it. I have done a bit, a few interval sessions in particular, but I hadn’t really put

My mission to eat healthily and lose 12 pounds in 12 weeks continues. No further weight loss for a few days, but I’m not surprised after such a dramatic loss in the first 2 weeks, so I’m still ahead of the curve as it were. I am continuing on with Bob’s rules and today I

Skinny Rule 17: Eat more vegetables – Just do it!

Our little trip to France was lovely and I am very pleased to say that I did manage to get a run in, so I now have a lovely new map for my Garmin, if a little wobbly in places due to a slight bit of confusion about bridges. Thankfully this only added on about

6 pounds!!!! Yes 6! Whoop whoop de whoop! (I am dancing to Madonna’s Holiday in my head) I’m so pleased, clearly! It appears all the years of making excuses, not dieting at the weekend, blaming anything but actual maths of calories in / calories out was really wrong. Who knew 😉 I have been diligently

The Skinny Rules

You know I said I didn’t need another diet book…. Well I decided I perhaps needed just the one more. And it is written by Bob Harper AKA My trainer Bob AKA Biggest Loser USA – and I love that show! I have now read up to Rule 16 of 20 and I love this
