Success Feeling quite full after a probably too big supper - all fitted on the plate though! I have been reading up on Shovelglove and am giving it some consideration... I think I should up my step goal as I think my fit bit is a bit generous and I reach 10,000 steps every day with out really trying.

I think I am getting used to no S now. There was temptation in my way but I was fine. Fitbit was out of batteries so I don't know about steps but don't feel I have done less than usual.

Happy New Year Rawcookie - yes a very no S specific problem :-).

Sunday went well with three S events - and much tastier ones too!

First 5 day N week in a while starts today. If I make it through this week then can I claim my 21 days given all the NWS days I have taken over Christmad do you think?
