We have turned our clocks one hour forward this night and it means that my kitchen clock will be on time again... never took it back in the autumn so it has been one hour fast all winter.
Antoher sunny and perfect day seems to be ahead. Yesterday I had something in my body that did not work, when I went with doggy for the walk int the woods I thought that I would die because I felt so ready to drop with fatigue - and I walked half the speed that I normally do but still felt really exhausted and sweating all over. I was a little nauseated too. So I had a lot of fluid and a lot of salty food and slept on the sofa for a while. In the afternoon I went on a bike tour with doggy and everything felt ok again
Canīt wait to get outside for a walk now - see if it feels better!
Friday I went for the health group for the first time, I am not sure what to think really. We were six ladies (men does not have health issues... ) and two women are to lead us. I am the oldest but not the fattest. The one that if larger than me is waiting for a gastric bypass. One of the other women I knew from fifteen years ago, I did not recognize her since she had doubled her size. She had two operations, first the gastric binding and then the gastric bypass and she is today a large woman... I need those examples every time I even remotely consider to ask for a gastric bypass. My BMI merits me to get one but I know that it is not a solution for me as I am a compulsive overeater, taking away the symptom would not cure the disease.
I fear that the leaders will try to teach us to eat less and exercise more... the hopeful thing is that it seems that most of us are beyond that - we have tried and succeed dieting in all forms and we do have the knowledge what and when to eat and how exercise should be planned. I loved the fact that one called her self a compulsive overeater, outside OA I donīt hear that much. I also loved that two or three very clearly said that they are after the group support but donīt want a "diet club".
As I said, I was the oldest but not very different, the youngest was 45 I think and the rest was in between her and me. We all qualify for "FAR" (swedish "fysisk aktivitet på recept"Physical activity on prescription") which means that we will get acces to all group activity that health cares provides for FREE! The course is 600 skr (66Euro, 89 USD) but those of us who has alreday paid for a health talk (i have) will get a reduction by half!. One of the activities is water gymnastics, whohooo always wanted to try that but there is usually very hard to get because so many wants it, and we have time! Every wednesday, whohoo! I will have to get a new swimsuit, my old is falling apart. I am using it because I have one slightly smaller and know that I will only have to lose some kilos to make it fit ad I have managed to swim in the old one but now I think I will have to accept to buy one...
Next friday it seems that they want to make us use step meters - I will not as they are hard to get to show right when you are fat. I will continue to use runkeeper on my iphone and what I do otherwise I donīt really care.
I also managed to upgrade my iphone (toof four hours!) yesterday, and although it seems as I los my RUnkeeper data I donīt mind, I have gotten the app again and will start to use it. I also bought the "Zombies Run!" will be interesting to check that out!

It is my second spring in my new house this year and I am givin planting a garden some serious thought. It is the digging that frightens me, I have to start by breaking the lawn adn the sane thing would be to try to borrow a...rotary cultivator (says my dictionary)
SHould have been digging in the autumn but it is not too late yet.
As long as I havenīt fenced my yard, doggy canīt be with me utsite, he is not trustworthy when people passes...
O postpone the decisions and take a walk with doggy in the woods instead. Daughter and friend asked to take the Ipad out with them to the tramploline, they are making films all the time. Next step is that we learn to edit, I got the offer from a girl at work that makes our webb-tv, but so far there has not been time. Or to be honest it is my old difficulty with bothering people that is stopping me.

Iīve been with Spark People for three years, love the place. I think the spark people have really managed to combine fun, colour with health and useful tools. And I do understand that a free site has to be financed, all the ads are the price I pay not to pay for being active here.
But it is getting uncomfortable... the ads keeps getting more and more dominating and popping in my face. I have started to think that the official blogs more and more seems to be about one product another to be tested or won or talked about...
But today I read a blog from my big hero, "Mostmom" Shelli where she reviewed some work out clothes. This is the second review I have read from her, I think the former was on a workout video. She clearly announce that she is not paid to do these reviews - and that almost makes it worse because then I think that the trademark she has built for herself and her kids is being used. Mostmom is an inspiration, she is fun, creative, motivating - really really a great role model. And I suspect that from now on every tenth blog or so from her will be some kind of review. I will also add that I trust Shelli not to say good things about anything she does not like, it is not her I am questioning just her judgement to do there reviews.
As I am a weird swede and not of much interest as a spark member I think that this criticism might pass unnoticed, my blog is not much read and this particular text is not going to repeated, I prefer to see the good things and ignore the things that is not that great. Worst case scenario is that I will be cut off and lose my membership here. That would create an empty space in my daily routines... and also mean losing contact with all the great sparkers I follow here, among them Shelli.
Today is the first meeting of a health group I have been invited to. I am excited and having high hopes that it will make a difference for me! The sink was not shined...I just did not care enough to bother...

serves him at unexpected moments, is unforeseen."

Spring is here, it is really lovely to walk outside, I can dress lighter and do not have to wear a cap or gloves.
It is a strain to try to be positive this week, I feel too tired, edition is upcoming and I usually get a little hystercial that time and as I am going to Oslor for two days next week I need to be more prepared than usual and as I was sick, I am not. Yesterday I wasted my time doing nothing and I certainly did not live up to the Kenny Bräck challenge that day...
I am very grateful for getting a new chance today!

After a week of cold it is again paingul to start walking. I just hate to be so unfit that it is really hard to get going. Walked with the dog in the woods and decided to take a shortcut home... ended up crying because I am not very good in walking where the ground is not flat and reliable. Managed not to fall more than once and did not get wet either should be grateful for that but I felt very tired.
Beautiful weather spring is truly here and that is great! I am behind at work and it does not feel good.
