Not going to the gym.Supermarket prices creeping up for Christmas Holiday. Still on 5.2 Diet on the second starving day!

I've never kept a diary or journal. Not a complete one. The last complete one was when I was about 15 years old and was only because everyone else was keeping on. You know the whole 'teenage secret dairy' with lots of hearts with hidden crushes and stuff.

So this is kinda something new. Anywho. Went to work and it was so so. Deadlines coming up. Then I'm on the 2nd of 2 day of 5.2 diet. I'm sure I eat way more than what is allowed. Anyway I had some pititful fruit salad for breakfast. Got that from Sainsburys. Then some bean salad which I had with jacket potato. Got into the whole 'exercise vs diet' debate.

My colleague also gave good advice about shopping online. She's addicted to special offers so says shopping on-line cuts it out. I know that when I used to go to weight watchers, yeah, I did, the leader suggested that helped too.

I dislike exercise  and I know this is fad but so is exercising. I start with an expensive gym membership - which by the way I still have - joined about this time last year. I go a few times then quit. Okay I frequently go for hydropool and steam. Maybe a run now and again but nothing to justify the amount spent on membership.

My boss who is super fit. I mean super fit, says I should walk more. I tend to take the bus to and fro to the train station, she does a brisk walk, swimming and spinning. And other stuff. She's super fit. I once did the gym for a week running but fell out of the routine. I have lots of excuses so no point listing them here. Just fair enough to say, I'm not a gym bunny.

Stayed a bit late and was starving so I had a tinned of sweetcorn, I'd stashed away in the office kitchen cupboard a while ago. I meant to have it with tuna but never got round to opening it.

Came back home. Nothing interesting apart from stupid people who never move down the train carriage. They like to hang at the doors. The most annoying thing is because of these dipsticks I miss out on a seat. Some one who comes in from another door naps the seat before I do. Another grip is when people start getting fidgety or shifty or packing their stuff together before a stop. Normally a sign they are going to get off so I can have a seat. Not. They are people who just do that for the stake of doing it. Annoying.

Still starving I went to my local supermarket to get something to eat. Ended up buying some mangos which have increased by from £2.50 to £2.75. Supermarket prices are creeping up for Christmas. In the Britain the most expensive time to go food shopping is Christmas Eve. Around now everyone starts to slowly hike up prices or do those Christmas specials. Which reminds me my colleague is looking forward to Black Friday shopping. Not that we have that here in the UK, but he's taken off the day. Last year it was a big thing so maybe he'll get a plasma screen for a tenner.


 I actually went to the supermarket for some Edmame beans but they still didn't have any. Got some grapes too. I know out of season but it's either that it breaking this day on some chocolate or huge chunk of bread and better.

My critique partner finished my last chapter with great suggestions. She's been so supportive and had really kept up my motivation and morale when writing this novel. It's nice when it's not just family reading stuff.

So I'm thinking of making into a series and a few spin offs. We'll see. I'm pondering over some so probably might write those at some point, maybe even before releasing this one.

BIG NEWS! PART OF A WRITING GROUP! WEIGHT LOSS!

Hello Blog reading family,

I've got some exciting news! I'm now writing under a writing group. This is awesome. I'm so excited. It's the Wuraola Writing Group. www.wuraola.co.uk So excited about this. It's all coming together in some sort of way.

Other news

I'm on a fitness plan. Going to the gym five times a week. No it isn't that deep as I only do a twenty minute walk-run...But I hit 1-1.5km which is good for me. I've also looked into my eating. So a bit boring for now, no cake. Yes, no CAKE....but I was feeling terrible. I felt and looked fat. That is totally different from being fat. I've been fat for a long time but never felt fat not did I look fat in my eyes.

Also I had problems due to the weight. So I looked into my weight scale and found I was edging on morbidly obese. I am currently on the wrong end of the obese scale so I want to come down to overweight. I need to lost about 20 pounds for that. Yes, to move from obese to overweight I need…

Elvenar - playing the fantasy game.

I am now of the one of the millions of addicted gamers. True. I'm playing a game called Elvenar which is a fantasy city builder. A friend of mine introduced me to it and since then I've spent countless hours playing it.

It's time like this, I'm happy I've got a day job as that gives me a rest. It is truly addictive however in  way it's a strategy game.

So it starts off very easy and progressively gets difficult. I'm on level two and this is where strategy comes in. And boy does strategy play a part.

I guess the aim is to build a big and powerful city where a owner or gamer can form alliances. I'm far from the level.

So in the beginning a gamer chooses to be human or elf, then from there starts to build. In each species you start from a village or hamlet status with primitive and rough looking dwelling to becoming a sophisticated looking city.

The key I've learn the hard way is to have as many houses as you can since that generates taxes and also wo…

Been a semi-entrepreneur is TOUGH!!! Wolves in Sheep Clothing.....

Hey everyone,

Things have been busy! Very busy. I mean my writing. The self publishing world is murky as well as other bad things I shall not mention. But I shall overcome and persevere. Perseverance is the only way forward in this shady murky business.  Yes. I will overcome. I will pray and step forward, keeping in my own lane.

Anywho writing is long term, so I can't complain because I've just written a novella. I'm not a one-book writer so I shall persevere and do the next.

Other Things

I decided to have a podcast about taking on the life of semi-entrepreneur. I'm doing  on youtube so if you want to listen you are welcome.  https://youtu.be/3lOtCdAYfK4

I'll aim for once a week. Other than that, I'm managed to lose about 10 pounds. Yay. I'm wearing clothes. I haven't worn in ages.

It's a late but next time I write, I'll give an update on my declutter as well.

Keep well.
