I am back at last. Its October 2013
Its an eventful year so far.
At the beginning of the year, I had put on 12lbs. Put on more since that.
But my bust size has remained the same and my hip size.
Waist went up though! Yuk!
Now its Autumn and I am beginning to lose again at last.
Been very busy, gardening, GD minding and my son came to stay.
My son has gone back to UNI. My GD has started school.
Busy knitting again and exercising, but not as much ...

Return after a long spark holiday.

January 2013
I have joined the Winter 5% challenge and hope to lose 7lb which is 5% of my present weight.

I am sticking with the Mediterranean diet, but emphasizing more vegetarian food. I eat wholemeal wherever possible. Rape seed oil does not agree with me and its in just about everything that is ready made even Pesto! So I need to make more of my own food and bread with EVOO
I exercise every day, yoga, walk/run, aerobics, dancing with Strength training at least 3 times a week. Weight training, Ball exercises , Hula hoop, Kettlebell, 3lb Medicine ball with DH.
Use the Free Gym.
Hike at least once a week.
Gardening, my passion! Grow more vegetables and fruit!
Maintain the house and decorate. I am into DIY!

December 2010
I joined the 5% winter challenge team.
Feb 18th 2011

Good to hear from you Ellen!! Thanks for stopping by my new blog! How are things going with you? My back is bothering me, so it has been slow going with my walking last couple weeks. But, I will keep on going! Just hope the chiropractor will help it and not have to do other therapy. Guess all those injuries last year didn't do it any good! Sigh!
Take care and keep sparking! Hope your weather is improving! emoticon

So happy to have you as a friend! You truly are special to me!!

Today is MONDAY, a day that I find every important to me. How I spend my Monday has an impact on how the rest of my week goes. You see, on Monday, for me, I so very much need to focus on my spiritual and mental health. It is imperative for me to find the right goals for week through what positive mental food I fill my mind with before I start the day. If I do not do this, than I am scattered and can procrastinate, as well as have other people control my day or week.

My desire for you is to have a great week doing things you enjoy as well as getting those things that need to be done, done.
