    No Scrubs

    Everything is late, one thing is at least a day behind, but this is surprisingly good progress, all told. There’s a reason, and it is worryingly grown up. If it's Monday it must be Allergy Testing… pic.twitter.com/6VXDfLiqjM — 🌊 Sarah @ The Estuary 📝 Redefined Metrics 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) January 28, 2019 Both son and daughter […]

    DAY 2: I’ll just leave this here. Just had the post-Christmas weigh in and, I'll be honest, this is rather satisfying… pic.twitter.com/MTIFNzA0Vq — 🌊 Sarah 📝 Redefined Metrics 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) January 2, 2019 Sugar cravings are non-existent. Sleep patterns are a lot less fraught after a couple of weeks off the routine, but as I […]

    Forget Myself

    DAY 1: Let’s start the clock again. I had an Orange Club yesterday but, in my defence, there was a VERY good reason. Donation time, here we go. Wanna make a New Year's Resolution?

  • Ready To Go

    Ready To Go

    And so 2017 begins. I’m too old to be phased by this shit any more, and I sure as fuck know that making any sweeping promises on Day One is just asking for trouble when the month goes to double figures. Therefore, let us begin with the small and attainable goals, right here on the […]

  • Life in Tokyo

    Life in Tokyo

    I’m at the Gym, earlier today, looking at the people working on a Friday lunchtime and realising I’m the only one sweating. The women either side of me are perfect, thin specimens with co-ordinated clothing and beautiful hair and yet neither of them perspire at all. They run like mice, all scurry in the legs, yet neither […]

  • The Master Plan

    The Master Plan

    It’s taken a fortnight, but this morning I woke up horizontal and without a coughing fit, which means that YAY health is now returning to normal. However, there’s been some hangovers from the massive antibiotic use, including a couple of quite scarily painful bouts of heartburn. That means that today, I’ll be eating simply and trying […]

  • Lost in France

    Lost in France

    I’m back to the weight I was six months ago. However physically, I’m anything but the same. I ate my last chocolate before Christmas yesterday (with the reserved exception of my Birthday weekend, which is being planned out of my hands.) There will be the bare minimum of cake, crisps, bad junk or indeed excess sugar […]

  • Creep


    Reality checks are useful, and if you ever believe you don’t need someone else to read your fortune? You’re wrong. If you continually baulk at objective, critical appraisal, the chances are that it’s not the rest of the World with the problem. There are consequences to every action, and conveniently forgetting this does nobody any good. Today, in […]

  • Friday


    Ladies and gentlemen, last night I fell in love. Many of you will already know the Nando’s Churrasco Thigh Burger intimately, but it was my first time yesterday and actually, I may be slightly obsessed already. It didn’t look ANYTHING like this, I’ll grant you (and slaw was notably absent) but honestly, it was immense. AMAZING. […]
