    >I should have known for just one second you’d be back to bother me…

    >As I mentioned in yesterday’s entry I’m up 1lb this week. Which means in the last four weeks I’ve lost 1 lb, gained 1 lb, lost 1 lb and then now gained it again. Part of me is really tempted just to say “fuck it!” and deal with my weight after Christmas but I’m not going to do that. I’ve taken my meds every day this month and I’ve drunk water as well each day (which is an improvement) although not the 1.5L that is my goal every day. Exercise is the one I’m really struggling with but I am pleased with what I’ve managed. I need to go update…

    >End of November Updates

    >I have zero time for a proper update. I’ve just posted an update post below this where I hope to track how I do with my main goals each day this month. Hoping having it visible for comments will help me keep on track better than the spreadsheet idea did (went out the window after about five days). Lost 1lb this week! So that’s the one I gained last week, gone. and means that in November 2009 I wrote 60,594 words for NaNoWriMo making me a winner for the first time since 2006 (I think) And I lost 5lb!

    >Up 1

    >I am up a pound this week. And also a day late weighing as the scales weren’t working yesterday. I thought they needed new batteries but the display started working again so I dunno what happened. I’m neither bothered nor surprised about being up a pound but very glad it’s not more. I only made one or two very small healthier choices this week so overall it wasn’t very conducive to good weightloss. Next week if I don’t lose I would like to maintain at the very least… ideally I want to be 18st by Christmas but that’s 10lb off so I’m thinking a bit unrealistic. We shall see. Tomorrow…

    >[insert witty and amusing title here]

    >I am tired right now but I want to get this done sooner than later. Plus I’m not sure I’m tired as such as fried my brain. We shall see. This week I’ve managed several times to turn down things I wanted or to make healthier choices. The smaller pizza in Pizza Hut rather than the bigger one. Turned down the free biscuits, cake and bacon sandwiches on the train and just took the free drink that sort of thing. And as I already said a few days ago I’ve done a lot more wheeling of my manual chair than I usually would. The main news this week, however, is…

    >Going Down!

    >Brief check in for the Healthy You Challenge this week. In bullet points: Managed one day with NO CHOCOLATE at all Managed another with NO COKE at all and without feeling overally ill Have a sinusitis type thing going on Keep having nose bleeds Made healthier choices on most days in the past week Drinking more water Wheeled myself all the way around IKEA for three whole hours on Sunday Did a fair amount of walking at my parents house on Saturday. The result? 2lb lost. yay! And my NaNoWriMo attempt is up to 19,531 words All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Updating because Updating is good.

    >Firstly, I’m still doing NaNoWriMo. I’m at 8300 and some odd words so far. Only about 200 of those words were written today so I need to get going on some more writing otherwise I’m going to lose my lovely word cushion (official NaNo day three goal is 5001 by bed time but I started today at 8149). I keep going backwards and forwards on the question of whether I like what I’m writing. There are some bits I really like and other bits that are just complete crap. Part of me does wish I’d skipped the original fiction idea and gone for the fanfic one. But really I am…

    >Ugh, annoyed

    >In the past two days I have not met any of my three daily goals. Ugh. The goals are daily meds 10 minutes of exercise 2L of water And in fact, I have had nothing to drink today but coke and a tiny amount of bitter lemon first thing. I’m gonna go have a glass of water and my meds in a min. Basically some of you will know that a couple of somethings I can’t blog about happened and got me very down. And then I get annoyed with myself for still being upset because the other people involved will have moved on and really it’s not my problem.…
