Monday – Week 11 Day 1
With out noticing it I’m now at the start of week 11 and now the holiday season is over its time to get back to normality. I’ve not had a good few weeks, but that’s to be expected and in all fairness I’ve not had a bad two weeks ether.
As a friend wrote “Every day begins as a ‘good day’. Overeating makes a good day bad and exercise makes a good day better” this couldn’t be closer to the truth. Another quote I seen this morning on G+ which touched a nerve was “Diets aren’t sustainable. Make small healthy changes daily, weekly, monthly that add up over time to give you a healthy life. – Sarah Stanley”
Since this is just day one I don’t have allot to report on a diet or activity front. I logged everything today and have finished the day with 640 calories remaining so I’m happy enough.
But I have been busy. Having the extra time off work I was able to make some much needed improvements to this site. I’ve dramatically improved performance, getting initial page load times down from nine seconds to under two. I have also, finally, finished the backend requirements to add a mailing list to this site. You can see the subscribe box in the right sidebar. The mailing list will only send out once a week and details all the content I’ve posted since the last issue. Since from time to time new content can be erratic this seems like the best way to offer my content without you needing to check everyday “just encase”
I’ve also put some work into my /picks page. As always nothing appears there that I don’t specifically pick and its only there because I like and recommend it. Advertising has also found its way to the site. There are overheads with any website and this is my small attempt to contribute back to them. Just like my pics however nothing is every advertised here that I would recommend. I do not use blanket ad services like Google Adsence. All these ads are selected specifically by me.
