Whole 30 Log – week 4 (and a bit)

Day 22 – 22nd Feb: Made more of an effort to eat well today as Sundays are normally so manic I only eat one meal. Also got some fresh air and light exercise tromping round the woods in Ironbridge with the kids. Still feel fairly “normal” – typical me, basically. No boost, no tiger blood, […]

Whole 30 Log – week 3

Day 15 – 15th Feb: Normal Sunday: in other words, mad rush to pick up the kids, no time to sit down and eat til late. I did manage to grab a couple of hardboiled eggs and some chicken around 2pm but basically didn’t eat til my evening meal (which was massive to compensate). It […]

Whole 30 Log – week 2

Day 8 – 8th Feb: Slept well, late morning lie in (even though I was supposed to be picking the kids up, oops!) Running around after the kids/doing chores all day so didn’t get chance to eat – this is fairly par for the course on a Sunday when I’m trying to get everything sorted […]

Whole30 Log – Week 1

Day 1 – 1st Feb: Spent much of the day preparing food for the week. Quiche-type thing (no crust) for breakfasts, homemade mayo for my coleslaw, etc. Moods have been fine for about a week but I think that’s because I’ve been seeing my counsellor again. I am suffering mega cake cravings but that’s normal […]

Mail Form Updates

I officially released the premium version of my PHP mail form last night. Partly because it’s been on the cards for a while, and partly because I wanted to get started on my plan to be mortgage free in five years. I can’t hang about if I need to be paying in £1,633.09 per month. […]

In which I admit failure

I failed another Sugar-Free September. It’s not my fault, honest. The biscuit spread leapt out of the jar into my mouth. The jelly beans tempted me with their sweet, sweet goodness. The cocktails proved too much for my willpower. Oh well, maybe next year :/

SFS: “So you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?”

Gaz asked me the other night “so you’ve had no sugar AT ALL this week?” And I said “well yes, I’ve had a banana, and they contain fructose” And after some further discussion he went on to ask with a raised eyebrow, “who made up these rules anyway?” Well, I did. I did because nowadays […]

Quick Update

Izz’s first day of school went fine :) the highlight of her day was apparently the chocolate pudding she had after lunch I’m on day 3 of Sugar Free September 2014 and apart from some odd cravings on the 1st, which I think were hormone-driven, I’m doing fine I’ve gained a new geek t-shirt, by […]

Embracing Hypocrisy

Despite having moaned at length over the past 10 years about advertising on personal blogs, the rise (and fall) of “Pay Per Post” and networks of that ilk, I took the decision this morning to drop an adsense advert on my blog sidebar. I am aware that this makes me a giant hypocrite, that some […]

Live Dev: So far…

Despite the fact that you’re all sat watching — refreshing regularly — to monitor the progress of my blog’s live development (you are, right?) I thought I’d give a run down of what’s happened so far, and what’s yet to come… New search bar across the top so you can easily search from anywhere (and […]

Live developing the site

Or in other words: fucking things up as I go along :D I’ve decided that if I’m to follow through on my vague-ish plan I need to just crack on with it because if I start development offline it’ll go the way of 99% of my projects and never see the light of day. At […]

Moved Feed Provider

Due to continued problems with Feedburner and the ever-present rumour that Google intends to shut it down, I have moved my feed provision (both normal subscriptions and email) to FeedBlitz. Please can you ensure that, if you subscribe to my feed, you are subscribed to www.jemjabella.co.uk/feed as this will always point to the right place. […]
