About that weight loss resolution...

Admire this photograph (taken at the edge of the pond), please:



No, you need to really admire it. For much longer than that, if you don't mind. Otherwise, all my suffering will have been in vain.

The temperature outside was -10°C/14°F. Not the best weather to go paddling in, really. The water was certainly ... bracing.
