Friday, September 21, 2012      2 comments

A recent plateau has made me realise the value of just keeping going on this weight loss journey. I remember a saying from the old folk tale about the Hare and the Tortoise: 'The Tortoise wins because he hangs on.' My weight loss for t... Read more

I love the idea (courtesy of this site) of playing an up tempo track every day. Acuyeye is my current favourite, by DLG (a Salsa band). It makes me actually get up off my derriere and dance. It's a v fast track, so blinkin' strenuous. Crikey, I... Read more

First day

Wednesday, July 04, 2007      2 comments

Well, this is my first day on the site, and I've really enjoyed moseying around the different articles and sections when I should have been working on my computer! I can already tell that logging on to the site is going to be a treat, and a brea... Read more
