Bugs and diseases.

The hand washing boffins have said we should be washing our hands for 20secs (2 lots of Happy Birthday, I don’t think it matters who you are wishing a happy birthday).

Don’t get me wrong, due to my lifestyle I am a regular hand washer, but I’m not sure I can commit to 20 secs hygiene-ing myself. So it looks like I will be forced to take my chances with the bugs and diseases. After all when have bugs and diseases done anyone harm?

Cutting down on the white stuff.

Like Ian Wright I need to cut down on my sugar intake.

This realisation, like most realisations in life, came via porridge.

Whenever I’ve made porridge for myself I’ve always added sugar but for my 1 year old I make it without. Being so young I also have to check the temperature is suitable. I do this through the very sophisticated method of sticking my little finger in the porridge. This however means I then have a bit of porridge on my finger and the easiest way to remove this is by licking it off. On doing this I was surprised that it didn’t taste minging, in fact it was more than passable. Since then I’ve tried to take less sugar in my porridge, my other cereals and my cups of tea (down to about half a tea spoon).

Waisting away

I’m losing weight and I didn’t have that much weight in the first place. I didn’t think my weight loss was noticeable but recently a colleague said, “You look like you’ve lost weight.” Then my mum said, “Have you lost weight?” Whilst my other half said she was looking through a photograph which included me from 5 years ago and wondered who, “that guy with the fat face was.”

In practical terms, I knew I was losing weight because in the last 6 months I’ve had to add new holes to my belts on more than one occasion.

This weight loss is in no way a conscious decision, it’s not as if I do any real exercise, unless you count running for the train every morning.

My loss of weight does however seem to have coincided with me drinking a lot less beer and although I’m technically not a qualified doctor, I may prescribe myself a few sessions in the pub. Purely for medicinal purposes.

Where do you mix your porridge?

When making porridge I like to mix the milk and oats in the bowl as I can control the consistency. My other half persists in mixing it in the pan of milk.

With this in mind, where do you mix your porridge?

Taking January Off

For the last few years I’ve taken January off. No Dry January or Veganuary or any such thing for me. I don’t even bother with resolutions.

January is no time to try to create a new me, it’s wet, miserable, grey, I’ve over indulged at Christmas and the credit card is due to be paid.

I find this approach quite relaxing, there’s no sense that I have to achieve anything just because I have a new calendar.

The only downside is that before you know it (31 days) it’s February and the only exercise I’ve done is running for the train and I’ve still got my mum’s Christmas cake to eat.

Perhaps I should take February off as well.
