Day 23 – Proactive Procrastination

  Mañana Mañana – and in that lies the root of all evil. FACT! Or in my case – the 2.5 pounds not lost in the past 3 weeks. I am three weeks into my 40.40 Challenge – and let’s be honest, the signs of clear deflection from the issue at hand does not take a Freud to […]

Day 22 – Bad news

Now some of you might not utter a sigh of surprise at all – but I have only lost 1 pound last week – which collectively means that I am one whole week behind schedule! Am I feeling blue? Not at all! I said I would tell you about Picnic on Picasso, and maybe then […]

Day 21 – Perfect

Quite simply the perfect end to a perfect weekend – so there is only going to be this short note. I’m barely within calories, but I’m there. Had Picnic on Picasso…. but need time to write about how blessed we are to live in Oulart – so watch this space tomorrow! Until then – a bit […]

Day 20 – Viva la blonde!

This is going to be very short – really! Summer is here, and we all know, it might be gone tomorrow, so no time to be sitting in front of computers – all be they new or old – and not be enjoying the gorgeous rays. My day started today with a wonderful walk through Ravenwood in […]

Day 19 – Nerd! Moi?

What I mean by nerd, is that I love technology, and all things techie. That said, not in a way that I can recite every acronym ever invented for Windows or Mac. No, more like the way it can amuse me. My iPhone, or a cool application, or my computer. And it is of a […]

Day 18 – Hot stuff!

This is truly old news, but the odd obsession with the weather in Ireland is a most astounding matter. And might I add, that as I write I am sitting bemoaning the weather as much as the next person – however, I digress. Just so that you know I am not really entitled to stand […]

Day 17 – Sexy legs

Right! I wish to share an ever so embarrassing moment I had today (with advance apologies to the man in my life). Picture the scene… There I was, Brandon House Hotel – May 2010. I was about to sign Brian Kennedy for the hotel as part of the upcoming Dunbrody Festival (in opposition to Crystal Swing […]

Day 16 – Best behaviour

Thanks Chef! Finally I have complete support from the home front with my challenge, and I am SERIOUSLY back on track. The bumpy and cellulite infused road of the past few days is ebbing into a smooth and controlled calorific ride – and all of that because I returned to work being greeted by curiosity and […]

Day 15 – Eulogy

Today is not a day for trivial tattle over a couple of pounds not shed, or a muscle not exercised. Today is a day to remember. Today kicked off with incredibly sad news, and news that always makes the distance between where we live, and where we come from seem like an eternity. I would […]

Day 14 – Back on track

Confession – the title refers to us being back on track to the Model County, and has no reference whatsoever to me being back on track…. yet! We are definitely going to have to write this weekend off as a speed wobble, that will have to be severely re-balanced from tomorrow onwards. It was the day […]
