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.

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.
