Personal Development on Sunday
It’s been about 10 weeks now! No chocolate, no desserts and a more balanced approach to everything else! I am down from 83.6kg to 80.1kg, and my pace when running is much improved.
However, I seem to be needing more sleep than usual!
For many years I have been aware of the condition called hyperthymia. Condoleeza Rice and Margaret Thatcher have it. It’s usually cited as the reason …

Personal Development on Sunday
As much as I have enjoyed this blog’s exploratory trips through World Affairs every Sunday, the system changes today and there’s now a new approach to weekends! Saturdays will continue to be about personal adventures and the enjoyment of life, a focus (if you like) on happiness and psychology, and blog posts on Sundays will henceforth have a health and fitness flavour!
And today I excelled at …

Lifestyle Saturday
This week Guy Kawasaki pointed me to this report in the Huffington Post which says chocolate is good for you!
I’m sure that if you look, there will be another report somewhere that says chocolate is bad. I gave up chocolate (and more) about 8 weeks ago! In that time I have lost 2 kilos in weight and I’m on track to run my first marathon next year. So …

Monday Muse
Given any circuit, I always run anti-clockwise and I always run on the left. That’s the way they do it at the Olympics.

However, doing it that way I hardly ever see the people whose habits mimic mine. In my local parks I do see lots of people running the other way, clockwise, and I wonder why they do that!
To me it feels like they are always trying to catch a second hand which is constantly turning away from them. The way I do it, at least once every minute …

Lifestyle Saturday
How it works, I don’t know, but we all go through phases of strong self discipline and we are all subjected to episodes of bureaucracy!
On the health front, both have been apparent this week. My family has been astonished at my self discipline and my ability to ignore the chocolate bars that have been in our kitchen for the past week (and more). And, I am astonished by the perpetual bureaucracy of the Government and its NHS directives. The handling of the current Pig Flu issue appears to them …

More Profit in Less Time – The Wednesday Tip
Fit and healthy people perform better at work. If you want to become more productive and more profitable, ask yourself if you are overweight and eating the wrong sort of food. I am trying to stick to a Japanese diet. By that I don’t mean that I am on a diet, I simply mean that my daily intake of food has to support my objective to live a longer, healthier life.

Do you struggle to reach for stuff at work if it’s high …

Lifestyle Saturday
Yes, I know the London Marathon was two weeks ago, and I’m a bit late writing a blog about it, or perhaps I am just fifty weeks early?
I knew the marathon was taking place, and I knew it was on a Sunday, but that didn’t stop my son and I forgetting something! On Sundays we normally cycle to our local supermarket to do some shopping. And on Sunday 26 April 2009, that’s what we did! Only we couldn’t cross one particular road and so we ended up watching the …
