Lost Four Pounds! Attended Pilates! Watched Patricia Bright

On Friday my boss got bored of me talking about my eating plan and how I only used my gym for the spa facilities, so let's just say I forced to put my money where my mouth was and ended up booking five exercise sessions. Yes, hard to believe I've been with my gym for over a year and have NEVER ATTENDED A GYM CLASS. Mainly, because I like the spa and thing food reduction is the way to lose weight also just thinking of exercise exhausts me.

I needed to book them via the website but having never done it, my password failed so I rang, in front of my boss, the gym to book it. Proof. They are mainly low impact classes so nothing too strenuous or so I thought.

Come Saturday, I'm down the gym for my pilates class with all these fit, slim and trendy people. It's a 9AM class so basically like a work day for me. I thought pilates was gentle. Not. I say this having done it for about three years in a dance school - yeah I was once about twenty pounds or ten kilos lighter - and the movements were simple. This was dynamic and I worked up a sweat. There were a number of things or most things I couldn't do. Namely the plank. Really? Let's just say I was talking breathers and breaks for most of it. It was a mixed abilities class so I really lagged behind. I might have to find something else.

I weighed myself before the class and found I'd lost about four pounds from my boring eating plan. I nearly bought a piece of lush carrot cake to celebrate but the cafe was closed so I made do with cherries. The reason why diets are so expensive is because fruit is. Also got some mangoes and yes, I'm having avocados, I don't subscribe to the whole avocado is fat and shouldn’t be eaten when on an eating plan. I still eat it.

After than workout, showered and hit shopping. Did a semi week's shop, and I'll need to cook otherwise it will be jacket potato and I can't face that again. So a large curry. Also Team Christmas lunch is this week.


Nothing much, slept. Yes, that's now how much the pilates tired me out. I went back to bed. Then got up, did some grammar work so I'd have a better handle on my editing. Then I watched Patricia Bright on Youtube. She's sweet, cheerful and watchable. I watch her from time to time. I think I got a catch up email from youtube. A long time ago, during my reality show addiction, I used to watch all the reviews. However she was talking about her cosmetic surgery and expecting - and keeping it private.

I understand because now YouTube is Patrica's job, and not a hobby. She's also blown up as in become increasing popular and successful so now she's a media personality (YouTube and beyond) and therefore is always under public (Youtube and others) scrutiny therefore she needs a private life. She needs to keep clear boundaries between her work and private life.

Comestic surgery is so popular, however I think because she is a YouTube blogger and therefore in the public eye, doing close-up video, after video she noticed it more. She probably always wanted a bigger chest however the nature of her work made it more apparent to her, so she decided to do it. As for expecting - its private. At work sometimes you only know when the person is showing.

Patricia is a hard worker who puts lots of effort and dedication into what she does. Right now she's launching her own hairline, which had been in the pipeline for a while. She's alway been business minded and an entrepreneur at heart so this isn't just out of the blue.

Anyway after that I went to library to try and finish up a segment of the write. It's still going out but I'm also thinking about how to edit or rewrite my books - hence where learning grammar comes in.

Grammar is about clarity. Clarity - depending on what the writer wants, is key to understanding. Normally I use patterns but I want a little more flexibility in writing. Also it helps unders patterns. I guess I also want to be different. Everyone is using the same constructs since they are in the public domain. There are a lots of cheat sheets out there with patterns or words and I want to be a little different. I'm not going to be a grammarian, gosh my previous boss went to Cambridge and studied Linguistics - he must have had a hard time reading my emails. Then again he was a patient dude, however he did once say he had little tolerance for poorly written job applications and CV. Let not even talk about split infinitives.

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


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

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here.
