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 ;)

First signs of spring proper. Longer and warmer days and the snow has thawed a lot quicker than expected. Nice.

Media
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – loved it. Strong acting throughout, great characters and a story that hooked.
American Made – Tom Cruise on typical form but this was pretty forgetable.
Justice League – Complete piss. Watched again in case the cinema viewing was an off day, but no. Crap writing, some poor acting, a terrible plot and some unforgivable CGI – not just Henry Cavill’s lip.

The Beast from the East was quite the thing. Don’t think I’ve seen snow like that since I was a kid. The snow looks lovely at first but bored with it now. Decided to take the bus into work on Wednesday which didn’t show so an interesting 3 mile walk into work…only to be sent home 40 minutes later. Still the thaw has finally started…slowly.

Media
Save Me on Sky – best start to a new drama in a long time. Looking forward to the rest of the series (all available now as a box set if you can’t wait).

Walking Dead……zzz…zzz.

After a really busy few weeks I did absolutely nothing this weekend…and loved it :) Scotland winning in the rugby was an added bonus.

Still thinking about Black Panther while listening to the two albums of music that came out alongside the film. Both really good.

Alto’s Odyssey is now out on iOS. Great game that looks and sounds good and has that addictive ‘one more go’ gameplay.

Enjoying Shetland again on the BBC – need to visit at somepoint.
