Opinions

I’m one of those people who love hearing other peoples opinions. I don’t always agree with them but I love hearing them. And yes, sometimes when I hear them I start judging the person. Anyone who claims “I don’t judge others” is lying. It’s human nature. How you vocalise your [Read more…]

Twelve Reasons Why I Love Her

A few years ago, more than I can be bothered to count, I decided I’d had quite an interesting life and would write my autobiography. I wrote quite a few chapters and kept going back and editing them and padding them out a bit. I took out some stories, added [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Body Image Issues

Happily I handed over the forms with my bank details on it to the girl behind the reception desk. I had the tour and I was impressed so arranging a monthly direct debit was perfectly fine.  The next stage was booking my fitness assessment. Excited and motivated I booked my [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Well!

So I’m, halfway through week two of my Fitter You programme and today I had my second weigh-in at Weight Watchers. To say I’m amazed and happy just doesn’t seem to cut it. When I went back to WW after Christmas I was 20st 9lb and at my first weigh-in [Read more…]

First Man – A Review

So Brad and I watched the movie First Man last night. As someone who loves everything to do with space and space travel I was really looking forward to it. I was disappointed. Which to be honest is usually the case with a Ryan Gosling movie. ***WARNING: SPOILER ALERT*** From here [Read more…]

More utter shite!

So a “study” has discovered that people who are more attractive are more likely to be accepting of gay sex. Well, that’s what you’d believe if you’d read nearly every fucking gay news website recently. They’re a bit slow on the uptake, the report of the study was published in [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Fitter Me! – A start!

When I finally got round to checking my email this morning I found that Matt (@FitterYouGlobal) had done as promised and sent me my first workout plan, meal suggestions and recipes and my daily confidence boosting challenge. One of the things he requested was a shirtless “before” pic but he [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Making Changes

A few days ago a guy I follow on Twitter posted the tweet below. Trying to edit the video I posted to the @FitterYouGlobal FB group of my 150 pressups but with a “modesty oblong” so I can post it on here, but my Adobe Premiere skills are not at that [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Kill me now!

So tonight was my first meeting back at Weight Watchers in nine weeks. It was entirely depressing. It was also the first meeting of 2019. It was fucking shit. I’m my own worst enemy. I could give you some shit excuse like “my head wasn’t in the right space!” (it [Read more…]

My Film Top Ten of 2018

My cinema visits for 2018 were very much down on last year. Something I will rectify for 2019. That being said, here is my top ten for 2018. As usual, you can disagree, it’s your right, but this is my list and my opinion. If a film isn’t listed it’s [Read more…]

Blown out of all proportion!

Other than the odd tweet or status update on Facebook I’ve been holding off saying anything about the controversy surrounding Christmas songs such as Fairytale of New York and Baby, it’s Cold Outside. Now though, after a couple of things I’ve read this morning, I feel I need to comment [Read more…]

Firsts

While searching through old files on my laptop I found this.  This was the first poem I ever read at Toastmasters.  I remember trying to find a poem I liked but couldn’t chose from the vast array so in the end I wrote my own. One of the things that [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Overnight Oats

Planning is key to a successful weight loss programme and that doesn’t mean just writing out a shopping list. Sometimes some foods need prepping in advance. As the name suggests Overnight Oats are made the day before and left in the fridge overnight. You can make a few in advance [Read more…]

Every day is a school day!

I made a discovery at work the other day. For those of you that don’t know I’m currently work a night shift rotation. They last three months and mine will be over in mid-October. As much as I love nights I can’t wait for them to finish as my sleep [Read more…]

Great-granny and her rules.

Looking through old files on my computer I found this speech that I gave at Toastmasters.  It was my fourth ever speech. My great-grandmother was a formidable women who was the typical matriarch of her family.  Up until the day she got married she lead a double life.  Her parents [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – The first…

Welcome to my first post. I have decided to ‘out’ myself and body image issues. Some people might say, given my size, it’s understandable I have body image issues but that’s bullshit. I know plenty of people who are bigger than me who love their size. Good for them. I [Read more…]

Scheuermann’s Disease

I’ve suffered for years with a bad back.  When I was ten I was diagnoses with something called “Scheuermann’s Disease.” Wikipedia describes it like this: Scheuermann’s disease is a self-limiting skeletal disorder of childhood. Scheuermann’s disease describes a condition where the vertebrae grow unevenly with respect to the sagittal plane; [Read more…]
