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.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Up Date on Happenings: Newly Single & 17% pay raise.

Hey Everyone, So update since my last entry. Well I had a brief fling with Mr Sexy Guy and decided he wasn't the one for me. He was cool but I learned the difference between lust, chemistry and personality. It just didn't tango for me. I'm still grossly overweight, well, fat. I don't think there is anything wrong with being called fat. I am fat. I need to lose weight but that means getting organised and stop eating delicious food. Then again my knees are hurting me and joints feel the ache. I also haven't been to the gym in three months despite paying for it. But when I do, I normally go for the sauna, hot tub and   steam room session. I've thought of cancelling the exorbitant membership but in the climate apart from bills it's the one thing that is just for me...that when I use it. Work is fine, managed to get a 17% pay raise. A big thanks to my boss who also pushed for it. It's good to work for people who support you in that matter. I think tha

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist
