Re: Our Youngest Got Bored

They are really good - especially the Fox. They look 'expensive' too - she could set up a little cottage industry there.

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Lost over 2 kg when I went for my two-week weight in yesterday - the fitbit has really got me using more energy - although I do need to be careful with walking and my bad knee - was in agony on SAturday after doing too much on Friday (I walked 12,000 steps - on pavements which I dont think helps) So...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Roasted veg are one of my staples too - when I've been working late shifts I do a great big roasting tin of peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushroom, garlic and whatever else springs to mind with a sprinkling of olive oil and it makes the basis of my main meal at work - served mixed with cous cous is a g...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I've just bought a fitbit tracker (basically it's a pedometer that talks to your computer) It measures how many steps you've taken every day and I've linked it up to the my fitness pal app and my food diary - finding it really good - it's making me walk more cos it works out if you can have more foo...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Manda - your post reminded me of how I felt this time in January when I started to lose weight yet again - it's for my health and I've got to do it and I've found that to be a really motivating factor. Lost another two pounds this month - now in the past I'd have been disappointed with that but this...

Re: Andy Murray loses

This is what wiki says - after reading it I decided they dont really know - it made my brain hurt The origins of the 15, 30, and 40 scores are believed to be medieval French. The earliest reference is in a ballad by Charles D'Orleans in 1435 which refers to quarante cinque (which gave rise to our 40...

Re: Andy Murray loses

Felt sorry for him today - he seemed really out of sorts. I guess we all have days like that - so much of tennis is in the head, kept thinking he'd come back but it wasn't to be bless him.

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Been for my two weekly weigh in today - lost nearly a kilogram, so 2 lbs , slowly but surely .... thought I'd have lost more this time - been really good. Weird isn't it, doesn't always seem to correspond exactly to what you've eaten?

Re: Automatic poop door

I dont have one now - used to have one with a sensor but had a few occasions when a tardy chicken got locked out - so if you do get one as suggested above go for one with a timer that you can set.
