Barbara's Home Base

I'm in my 50's, single, work in IT and have had problems with my weight since I was 10. I would love to be a Spark success story, but I'm not.

4 Sep 2013: Take Action
I'm a procrastinator, and am mostly happy to chug along and take things as they come. But for some things, that's a bad strategy. It's time to do instead of be.

1 Jan 2012: Mindfullness
Since I signed up in 2007, my only success has been to make exercise a part of my life. I don't undervalue that. I suspect that fitness may be even more important than weight to our overall health and feeling of well-being. I didn't make my 2011 goals so I'd like to reframe them into a single word:

Mindfullness

Be mindful when I eat. Taste. Enjoy. Stop.
Set the table in the evening. Treat myself as I would others.
Notice how much better I feel when I am lighter, and more fit.

1 Jan 2011:
I asked a colleague at work to be my fitness buddy in 2008, and since then I exercise between 2 and 7 times a week. We are lucky to have a tiny gym and a fitness trainer in twice a week, so I'm able to exercise in my lunch hour or after work. But without my buddy and the strength training classes given by the trainer, I wouldn't have done it. In those 2 years, I've lost a few pounds and gained strength, but most of all, I look and feel better.
For 2011, my goal is to improve my eating behavior and get below 100 kilos and to improve my fitness even more.

So happy to have your visit to my blog today...it's been way too long since I've touched base with you. It's been a busy year of a lot of "hurry up and waiting". Hopefully my surgery will be scheduled soon. I have another consult on Sept 18th and then God willing it will be soon after. My youngest got engaged in July and we are all excited about having a wedding to plan. Such fun.

I'll pop back later to see what all you have been up to.
Hugs,
Wanda

I love that I have come to Barbara's Home Page! Thanks for the visit. I am trying so hard to fit in some healthy sparking to keep me focussed. Last year was very hectic and everything took a back seat to school. Fortunately, my health was maintained (I had perfect attendance!) but, I would like to be less exhausted this upcoming year. I'm glad that you are still around to touch base with. It's nice to have your support. I hope that I can return the favor in the upcoming days.
Fondly,
Nancy

I'm doing just fine. Working a bit hard. Getting bored with the rain though. Realy bored. It takes the mojo out of me when the weather is bad. I need the sun to live.

Ik gebruik dezelfde sites om calorieen op te zoeken. Deze gebruik ik ook en is is echt super. laat je niet afschrikken door het hartinfarct gedoe om de voedingswaarde tabel te gebruiken
