Tara Fixed her Laptop!

Monday, January 03, 2011

Yes! My little genius raced downstairs this morning all excited, saying that she thought she might have figured out how to fix her laptop! She switched it on and went to System Restore, and reset it to the day before the laptop went poof! We sat there with bated breath for a couple of minutes, and it started updating Kaspersky and signing her in to MSN! She's back, which means I have my baby back to myself. Yay!

We've been pretty good about sharing actually, in between trying to get assistance to fix the laptop and getting nowhere which has been frustrating in the extreme. But somewhere in the myriad of 'not-so-helpful comments and suggestions was a throwaway remark from Bryony that started the little grey cells percolating in Tara's brain, resulting in the lightbulb moment this morning.

Since then Tara has been superglued to her baby, and I'm not going to say a word about doing anything else to her because she deserves to enjoy her triumph. :-)

We are having a designated 'Do-Little-Day' today. It is Bank Holiday Monday so we are going to enjoy it. :-) I've walked Sophie, mulled over my word for the year, popped to Waitrose for a few essentials, and I'm now going to spend the rest of the day on my PC catching up with SP, Livejournal, and trying to get my inbox down to a manageable level - in itself no mean feat if I can do it. LOL

Oooh, and I nearly forgot that I also have my lower body strength training to do. Must go do that now before I totally forget. :-)
Catch you all later!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

First Week in Review of 2011 and a Look Back and Forth.

Sunday, January 02, 2011

The last week has seen me renew my commitment to Sparkpeople and my health after a temporary hiatus for Bryony's wedding (photos finally on their way to me apparently). I'm keeping track of food and exercise properly again after several weeks where I only kept track of my steps on my pedometer and let everything else slide.

Even though we really didn't 'do' Christmas this year, for various reasons, somehow the season still got to me, and I gained a little weight from the only thing in the house that isn't normally here, namely boxes of chocolates. I treated us to a box of mini Toblerone, which we are still working through at the rate of a couple a day each, plus nice neighbour Anne gave us a box of Thorntons, which disappeared down our throats in two days, and Bry gave us each a mini box of Hotel Chocolat chocs, which also got eaten over the same two days as the Thorntons. Ooops! For someone not really 'into' chocolate I surely stuffed myself with it over Christmas. LOL Good choc with soft centres or soft alcoholic centres in them are a weakness of mine, which is probably why the Toblerone are lasting and the others didn't. :-) Hey, at least I didn't add dessert to the mix. *grin*

So I am up to 13 stone 2 1/4 lbs, from 13 stone 1/4lb this time last week. The week before that I had seen 12 stone something for the first time in years and I hope to see it again sometime soon. As I'm always saying, this journey isn't so much about the weight for me, but more about getting fit and eating better. If the weight loss comes along for the ride then all well and good, but I don't stress when it dips and rolls like this.

Since I stepped on the scale back in Jan 2009 and discovered I was at 14 1/2 stone, I've done well to lose around 1 1/2 stone without going to insane lengths to diet and exercise. Hello Lifestyle Change instead of dieting. :-) I am also a firm believer in 'slow and steady wins the race'. :-)

Anyhoo, back to the last week:

This last week I have remembered, by the skin of my teeth and the nagging of Tara, to do at least the Bootcamp videos each day to get my strength training back up and running. My muscles have screamed at me, but that is my fault for letting things slide for a few weeks. Hopefully they will be singing sweet music to me before much longer, once they are back where they should be. :-)

After over a week of being unable to take Sophie for walks at Highwoods because of the thick ice everywhere, we finally got back in the swing on Thursday, only to have that unusual experience with the police manhunt the very next day. However, Highwoods is back to its more peaceful self, and today all we could hear was the wildlife, and boy were the birds singing! They were on top form today, and the only birds in the air were of the feathered variety! *grin*

Everyone, it seems, on SP have been either working on New Year Resolutions, or denouncing them as a waste of space and a guaranteed downer as they almost never work, and all you set yourself up for is failure and a self-esteem nosedive.

I have to say I tend to agree with the latter group. I lost count of the years I made resolutions, only to have failed at least one before the first day was over (that one usually being the one to quit smoking LOL). I have come to the personal conclusion that New Year Resolutions are the result of a temporary mass hysteria brought about by alcohol. Either that, or it is the biggest ploy the marketing community ever come up with. Think about it. If you tell yourself you can't have something, what becomes all you can think about? Then what happens when you finally give in to the craving? You eat/smoke/drink/gamble twice as much as you would have had you carried on as normal!!! Very, very sneaky! LOL

Anyway, my friends on the Positive Bloggers SP Group are doing Word of the Year. Basically, to quote Wanda, "you choose a word that resonates from within and allow the word to be your guidance through out the year. Any word that you wish to incorporate in your life, learn from and grow with is fine. Spend some time meditating if need be to receive your word. It's not difficult, as usually once asked for, the word pops into your mind and just feels right."

I didn't think I was getting a word, but today mine popped right out at me, and it is SPIRIT. I am looking forward to seeing how this word affects my coming year. :-)

If anyone is interested in this concept, check out this website for more details:

christinekane.com/blog/december-is-a
ll-abo ut-words-whats-yours-gonna-be/


And on the subject of my groups, I plan to make some changes there. Some I am pretty much inactive in, and I plan to change that. I need to be sensible about the amount of time I spend on SP, so I have to limit myself, but at the same time I love some of my groups and the friends I've made there with a passion and would not want to leave. So I shall leave a couple of groups I really don't interact with anymore, and make an effort to be more active with those I remain a part of.

Can I just shout out a special mention to Positive Bloggers, British Comedy Lovers and Finding and Loving Your Inner Tigger? These three groups are among the most friendly and supportive groups you could wish to meet on SP. I'm looking forward to interacting more on these teams in particular. :-)

I am also looking forward to spending more time with my friends here on SP. Dare I hope I might meet at least one or two in person this year? That would be wonderful! :-)

Well, that is about it for my review this week. I have a very exciting anniversary coming up in 11 days. Stay tuned on that one. :-)

Have a wonderfully serene Sunday.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    Lexie, so glad you found your groove and are making plans for balance on SP. I agree, some teams just didn't seem to be me so I had to let them go. I know you can make "Spirit" work for you. New year, wonderful new possiblilities. Lets go 2011. emoticon

    I knew you'd be back on your game soon enough. A lifestyle change won't allow for reverting too long back to old ways.

Ahh, SPIRIT sounds like THE word for you, Lexie! I've hesitated writing out my goals, so maybe I shall seek my word of the year as well.

I'd love a trip to England, and it would be perfect if I got to visit you!

Currently sleeping on the couch. Oh, gotta go! They're showing JAWS on tv and it's my fav!!! Hey! I live by the sea! Sharks are scarier then bears or lions around here!

I'm not a big resolution person either- the world and his wife conspire to be your undoing!
As long as I can maintain a healthy weight this year and I continue to get fitter my only goal is to master the kettle bell- and that's not a resolution made on 1/1/11, it's just a goal and something to aim for.
Where do you get your kitty pics? I LOVE THEM! emoticon

    Fabulous word choice!! Covers all the bases! You have a great attitude about this whole weight thing, namely, its the lifestyle stupid :)
I have never bothered with resolutions. If there is something I want, anytime, anywhere, I will be going for it and you better not get in my way LOL. Only one chocolate appeals to me 90% cocoa dark chocolate. I don't like it messed up with anything in it like nuts caramel etc., has to be pure.. Its heaven in a bite :) Indulging at holiday time isn't so bad, just throw extra workouts in and make sure its over when the holiday is over.
You are going to accomplish your goals Lexie. You are headed in the right direction.
2011 is your year to shine!

I hope the Wedding was a smashing success...will have to look back at your blogs to get the details...you did provide details right????...lol

SPIRIT is a wonderful word for you and for the coming year. I couldn't have picked a better one for you!

Now that I am back (shoulder's still a problem but even being here a little is better than not at all!!) I too am looking forward to another awesome year with our wonderful team!! TEAM TIGGER is the most amazing group of positive, supportive people out there....We are a lucky group indeed!

Police Manhunt in Highwoods Interrupts Quiet Walk

Friday, December 31, 2010

Them's the headlines folks! *grin*

Yes, you read that correctly. :-) We started off having a lovely walk, even though it is still extremely soggy underfoot. We walked up two fields, across to the woods, along the bottom woodland path, visited Grandfather (an ancient Oak Tree by a pond), and then walked down to the lake.

It was as we were circling the lake that I spotted two policemen on the opposite shore. I thought they were community police at first, though why they would be wandering about Highwoods I don't know. As we got close up I realised they were police proper, so to speak. :-)

I passed them as they headed up the hill and I then got chatting with a lady who happened to be an off-duty policewoman. As we were talking a police helicopter arrived, and it started scanning the woods. She was most intrigued as to what was happening and wandered off after the officers, presumably to find out the situation.

Sophie and I continued our walk, and as we approached a copse a Squirrel broke cover and shot across in front of Sophie, racing into the trees right in front of her. Well, you know Sophie and Squirrels. *grin* She started darting to and fro, trying to get under the trees after the squirrel, and I suddenly realised that the police helicopter was taking quite an interest in what she was up to. Sophie finally admitted defeat, and we walked on, the helicopter still hovering overhead.

As we were leaving the field we bumped into a Police Dog Handler and a high ranking officer. The Officer told me that a man had absconded from A&E during treatment and run into the woods, so they were trying to find him. He would be easy to recognise as he was covered in blood and bandages!!!

I assured the Officer that had I spotted anyone covered in blood I'd have dialled 999, and that I would keep an eye out for him. It wasn't until we were on our way down the path that I clicked that Sophie's antics with that Squirrel probably made the police in the helicopter wonder if she had spotted the missing man! had I clicked I could have tried signalling to them that she was just after a Squirrel, but how do you mime "It's OK. My dog's after a squirrel" at a police helicopter? LOL

All the way home we kept bumping into people who were speculating as to why the police were out in force, and someone said there might have been a bank robbery because all the bridges have been closed, and there were police cars and officers on foot all over the area. I don't know yet what the full story is, but if I find out I'll let you all know. Needless to state, I didn't spot the man anywhere, and I'm rather glad I didn't! :-)

So, there is no snow to speak of left at Highwoods, but despite the thaw the lake is still largely frozen at this point.



Now I plan to post this blog and then get settled into my armchair with my crochet so I can watch one of my all-time favourite films, and here I am showing my age. Rex Harrison as Dr. Doolittle! I love this film so much, and rarely get a chance to see it these days, so as one of the TV channels has kindly decided to show it I don't want to miss out. :-)

I'm working on a Aran Granny Square Blanket at the moment, and there are still a lot of squares to make. :-)
So, have a wonderful New Year's Eve, and I'll catch you all later.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

Just when you think it's safe to play on the internet....

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

...your daughter's laptop refuses to acknowledge the wi-fi and you find you are sharing your computer, and she is getting the lion's share of hours because she does so much studying and role-play online. *sigh*

We are currently in email discussion with Belkin, so please wish us luck for a speedy resolution to the problem, before we tear each others hair out! LOL

In the meantime, I have managed to keep up with my plans. I've tracked food and fitness each day so far this week, missed my water by a couple of glasses yesterday and Monday, but otherwise on track, and I've done cardio and strength training. I completed that one mile walk video again on Monday, and felt confident to tackle Leslie Sansone's two mile walk in 32 mins on Tuesday!

www.exercisetv.tv/workout-videos/wal
king/2-mile-walk-5861


Hee hee hee. I did it, even though it is rather more work than the single mile, and I followed it with upper arm strength training, and let's just say my shoulders and arms are not happy with me today! LOL Boy she works you hard on the two mile walk, but it is exhilarating to complete it though!

The great news is that the thaw has finally arrived, so I can put Leslie on the back burner for a while and go walkies in Highwoods again. It has been ten days since we were last there and both Sophie and I are sick of football and fetch in the garden now. :-)

The joy is that the snow they forecast became rain instead, so although it is very soggy underfoot, the last of the ice is disappearing fast as the temperatures remain above freezing for now. Don't we Brits love to talk about the weather! LOLOL



Tara was finally feeling well enough to venture into town today. She has REALLY suffered with these bugs, and had a relapse a few days ago, just as we thought she was out of the woods. But today we walked into town so I could pay a bill and grab a new Brita water filter, and Tara got to spend her Christmas money at long last. She did well in the sales. With 25 she bought a calendar, a diary, a DVD of Coraline, a CD -Imelda May's Mayhem album, and three playstation games for the PS2 - Classic Sonic the Hedgehog Avatar - Legend of Aang, and Happy Feet. *grin* She is a very happy bunny. :-)



Well, I'm going back to my inbox to try and catch up with a few of my friends' blogs before Tara needs to get back on here.
Take care.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

It is no good asking me we have multi-systems everything as we have been transferred back and forth with the military.One of my friends wanted to borrow my Clatteford and Life on Mars DVD's and I blithely lent them to her never realising she couldn't watch them as she only had NTSC while I had both NTSC/PAL !

    Sorry about your computer woes :(( Hope they get it right soon for you.. So glad Tara is up and about!
So nice you can get out again in better weather (in my books anything above freezing is balmy, shorts and T shirt weather ;))
Enjoy!
Hugs,

    I've been missing you 'round here, Lex!

Good job on your indoor walkies with Leslie! Tara really made out like a bandit today spending her Christmas money. I hope she's all well soon. No more setbacks!

    Oh no, not Nemo! I hope no children are on here!

I would share my computer with my daughter for homework...

That walking dvd sounds serious, glad you're getting back outside. The snow here is melting fast today.

    Oh no! Nemo! What have they done to you! emoticon
Sharing a computer is something I would hate to have to do! So, fingers crossed here!
YEY for the walks! Nothing like moving in nature, nothing! I have said I'd run up and down 3 sets of stairs if I must, never had to. But I sure will some day, should weather turn against me.
Even my dog is spoiled rotten - does not like it when we walk the same route over and over, but if the walk is long enough, she'll forgive me. And if she gets to swim, all's forgotten! emoticon
