Off target but having fun

I only have a month to go to reach my weight reduction target. I strategically did not set myself a difficult goal. I set myself a very achievable weight target, and all was going according to plan, that is, until the World Cup started. Since then my weight has started increasing. The combination of too much beer, and not enough visits to the gym has started to take its toll. But the Buddha beer belly has been worth it. A whole month of constant footy, beer & BBQ’s has been a lot of fun. We got to see one game live in Köln which was a tremendous experience. Shame it wasn’t an England or a Germany game.

But next month Germany plays a friendly game against Sweden in Gelsenkirchen and the Haddock family will be there to see it. As expected the Juniorette is very excited. In a few minutes the 3rd place playoff game Germany v Portugal starts (hopefully Germany win), and then following tomorrows final game (hopefully France win it) I will devote my full attention to losing a bit of weight again.

Germany DID win and France WILL win! Italy needs their ass kicked just because they beat Germany in the Halbfinale. Because of this, I'm boycotting everything Italian, and even though I don't particularly care for the French, I wish them the best in beating some Italian ass!

What a game! That was some good football (on both sides).

Now crossing all fingers and toes for France :-)

Into every life a little beer and food must fall! LOL.
I too have been bad on my diet. I'll be getting back on the diet wagon on Tuesday. One more party to go to on Monday.
Life is too short not to enjoy yourself!
