Hey hey it's Saturday. And that is wonderful, Saturdays can never come fast enough sometimes. And as good as that is if they go too fast, we will speed through time too quick to enjoy them-and every other day too. So, I am going to enjoy this day today. And live every moment like if it is so precious. And thinking about that, every moment is a moment we will never live again. There will be happy, estatic,sad,tragic, fun,so many moments. And them moments will travel us through our universe we call earth. In our "oh so lucky we have it-Cyberland". What would we be doing now if the internet was never discovered?? It has it's bad aspects admittedly. But lets think back when there was no email,no facebook,no spark people,and communicating did not exist beyond us phoning, or flying across the world etc. We couldn't look up information on the computer, it didn't even exist. We had to find the time to fit in going to the library for information. We sent mail the old way, through the post. No iphone, or i or e products or experiences. Just imagine if that was how it still was. Younger generation people-the kids and young adults grew up with the computer age. But I grew up in the 70's and back then none of this would have been possible.
The calibre of the technology today is so so advanced and it is amazing how fast that it is moving. Every new gadget arrives and before it wears out a newer better version or gadget all together replaces it's importance. And people that study and research and are up inventing new things and new medicines are amazing. The people who care who are trying to make a better world by researching to find cures for untold illnesses. People even looking to find a way to be immortal, or to live as long as they can. Then on the other side,well another angle there are the bad to society people who commit constant crimes,unthinkable violence against other people. They have to be removed from society and locked up, and live year after year doing bad things. We are such a diverse creation. And even saying that, we all have different views on where we came from, why we are here. The more we think into these subjects the more directions we can go into.
I'm not even going to take any more directions right now. I am going to greet all you Sparkies, every Sparkie with a welcome
. I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. And "Shell" don't go there, but time zones find us all at different time frames. I am experiencing and living Saturday 1.36pm right now. And some of you will join me there,many others will be living yesterday. And some will be sleeping and getting up to your Saturday in a few hours. I slept in today and weighed in and am now twelve kilos down. I thought about my new weight for a moment or two. And when I think that on Thursday I was given a box of chocolates, I was woken up by a messege on my cell phone by my boss. The way she worded things saying we had to talk, I thought I was in trouble. So, with that frame of mind, a little curious and concerned when I couldn't get hold of my boss what she had to tell me. I gave in and opened them choccies
. My son and I ate the lot. Another unusual thing happened that day I won't go into. I decided we would have greasies for tea-fish and chips. And as all us slimmers know, fish and chips, chocolate and halloween lollies aren't best when wanting to lose weight. They are ideal if you are wanting to gain however. So, with that in mind I did good with my 200grams down since my last weigh in. I aren't weighing in on any specific day at the moment. I am working on health and eating healthily as much as possible. I'm working out and enjoying that. But I have had the odd day here and there, more that I am allowing myself than giving in to temptation. Well maybe a little of both!! I said I would dye my hair when I reached twelve kilos down. To cover up the greys which are sprinkling throughout my hair,and my mousey colour. And I agreed that photos to go with it too. I might do that tomorrow. I am happy to be twelve kilos down since June. I am not racing or doing it fast. I want to make this a lifestyle change not a diet, so it is long term. And I want the results to be long term too. I was thinking I could be down twenty kilos by christmas or the new year. And that is a goal I want to be under a hundred kilos. By christmas might be pushing it, but being under a hundred is where I want to be. I am heading towards that and my journey continues.
Happy Sparking Sparkies, have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the journey-whatever journey you are on.
