The problem with gratefulness
I usually open up the box and share the chocolates with the rest of the healthcare staff. A kilogram box of Cadbury's Heroes can be emptied in this manner in under fifteen minutes. I am usually able to save a couple of bite-sized pieces of Timeout at the risk of having my hand chewed off by the cocoa-maddened crowd. It's like throwing a fresh carcass into shark-infested waters.
Even so, I have put on 5 kg in the last 3 months. This is entirely due to the consumption of two or three chocolate pieces a day because nothing else in my lifestyle has changed. 5 kilos of chocolate weight! If this goes on any more, I shall be able to roll myself into work.
I am thinking of going swimming regularly at the local leisure centre. However, I have difficulty spending an hour in the pool just doing laps. I get bored and end up playing with water instead. Anyone have any suggestions on pool exercises I could try, just for a bit of variety?
