I weighed myself this morning and i'm down to 90.1kg. That's pretty low for me. It may surprise you that I actually have a spreadsheet to track it, although I haven't recorded a new entry for over 2 years.
To put that in context my weight averages at 93.64kgs, max was a whopping 97.6 (15st 5lb), and a low of 89.2kg which if I remember correctly was after a bout of food poisoning so was more down to dehydration than any effort to reduce my weight.
What have I done to get so svelte? Nothing much, although i'm out walking the dog a couple of times a day i'm actually walking less, partly because of the new lockdown, and partly due to the weather. I don't really eat that much so that helps but I still like a drink or two and that certainly hasn't cut down.
Let's see if I can get to just being overweight rather than obese in the next month or so. Oh dear, Christmas is coming...
Things are moving on with our house extension project. We've spoken to our neighbours about our proposal, building on to their extension foundations and they have no problems in principle. This means our architect has been given the go ahead to push things on. He's now arranged for a building contractor, structural engineer and a heating engineer to come round on Monday afternoon to discuss the plans.
It's all getting a bit exciting and who knows, work may even start as early as Spring.
Still a lot to do though as we need planning to be improved too.
Half an hour into my working day and I am completely bored. I've been working on a project for over a month and can see that it's nearly done but just can't seem to garner enough energy to push it over the line. I've got a meeting with my boss to discuss next steps at 12 today so hopefully that will give me some fresh impetus.
I think the main problem is that the piece of work doesn't have to be submitted till March / April next year (i'm only contracted till mid Jan) so seems a little overly cautious. I prefer to live life to the extreme...
One bit of good news is that another piece of work that i've been working on was signed off yesterday and that's over a week early before it needs to get submitted to Lloyd's.
Once this piece of work is finished hopefully I can get a few smaller tasks with tighter deadlines. That's where I work best and hopefully it will get me more interested again. 2 months and 2 days before my contract ends.
