Happy New Year! On an Internet Detox regime.

Happy New Year, and wishing everyone the best!

I had a great Christmas and New Year with friends and family. I even baked a carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Yum. It's kinda put me off cakes because it was so rich. I've decided to go to Weight-watchers next week and sign up for three months. And for the next few weeks, I've decided to cut down using the internet at home.

Yes, I discovered a lot of my time is online - checking emails, social media, researching  and procrastinating. So after various attempts to stop, I decided the best way was to remove my router and it to Momma AG to keep. It was hard. I replugged the router back four times and went surfing until I decided enough was enough.

It's not that harsh since I have access at work, my local cafe & pub and the public library. Those are manageable. The crutch came when I was doing a critique for a story on the online workshop I belong to and found I'd been on line for five hours. Five hours?

Not bad but I couldn't sleep so I work up at 4.00am since I'm an early riser and logged on. Worse thing was that I never posted the critique. After all that time I decided not it, mostly because the critique was more a philosophical debate than anything else.

It is very hard because I feel as if something is missing, I feel I am missing out. The fear of missing out. The positive thing is that I'm sleeping better since I don't have anything to keep me wired just before I go to bed. I can focus better on other computer tasks and not get distracted. So more productivity!

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
