Great week off. Lots done, couple of trips out and about around Scotland and a couple of new toys as well. Made the best of the improving weather – finally feels like Spring!

Media
Save Me finished strong, pleased it’s got a second series.
Deep State – enjoyable first episode. Well worth a watch.

Looking forward to a quieter week off from work. Kicked off early yesterday with a trip up to Glencoe. Didn’t quite get the weather but still a stunning bit of the country to visit as long as you avoid the tourist spots which were mobbed.

Media
Homeland is on point this series…building nicely.
Annihilation was a great watch on Netflix, shame it didn’t make a cinema release in the UK.

Tired. Looking forward to week off work…5 days and counting.

Media
Shetland – belter of a series with strong actors and a great story. Unlike so many other drama’s it finished strong. Stephen Walters was amazing – hope it’s recognised.
The Funeral Murders – Documentary on the Troubles and the funerals in March 1988. Timing in amongst brexit negotiations made it feel all the more relevant. If you missed it catch it on iPlayer.
Lady Bird – loved it.

Getting tired of the weather…looking forward to a week off at Easter which will hopefully be snow free.

SMILF is pretty damn funny. Save Me is still the best thing on TV at the moment.

Year of the Rings

Last year I posted on getting out and about and filling the Apple Watch rings each day. I said I wouldn’t be too fussed about filling each month but that turned out to be not strictly true.

Today marked the 365th day of completing the rings. At least 30 mins of activity, 440 calories and the slightly more mickey mouse stand at least once an hour 12 times a day. Doesn’t sound much but it’s kept me from lazing around over the weekend and also forced me out at work to get a much needed break from the office over lunchtime. It’s also delivered a few achievements in the last 12 months.

There have been a few weird days in amongst the 365 like getting of a flight at 22:00 and needing to walk for 20 mins, a couple of ill days where I forced myself out, the odd walk in the snow (loved it!) and the occasional soaking but overall it’s been a great wee challenge to do. Not so great was trying to up the walks into cycles and runs – the body not quite right to take the extra excercise. Weight however has stayed pretty constant although slightly up this year so need to work a bit on bringing it back down.

Will I keep it going? No reason why not but I’ve no target now so won’t be fussed about breaking the streak…although the complete year of workouts looks pretty nice ;)
