And did a blog, and I have almost done so a few times. It has been a very changing year in so many ways. With ups and downs, new job that came with so many emotions. Which I told you's about the bullying, there's been the gossip mill. Me facing my trumatic childhood with going back and working in and facing this environment. Where I work is just like stepping into my younger shoes when I used to visit my treasured long ...

I know I haven't blogged in so long or even changed my status or spent more than a short time in here for so long. But I haven't left, I haven't gone mad, I am still a Sparkie. And dam right-I'M NOT MAD!!! Oh but believe me, for the last few weeks I was beginning to look at myself sideways!! I was questioning my own sanity. And I have been depressed quite a bit, but I believe I am finding myself again. The Shell I know, the weird, and even eccentric one-but not the "Mad Shell...

It has been awhile since I have updated what I am up to. I have been dropping by daily, but have not had as much time to hang around. My new job is going well, and I am almost finished doing orientation. Although next month I have a formal orientation day, to complete the ins and outs,and rules, regulations etc of my job. I am a caregiver at a psycho/geriatric hospital. It has a small amount of residents, approximately 50. And it is set into different parts depending on their...

After today writing a blog about how dumb I felt because I thought I was going to get the job. And then every time I rang , not hearing back I got it. <BR> It is exciting and it is scarey. A new journey and a new direction after eight and a half years doing the job I do at the moment. Wow, I can't believe it. I am on annual leave at the moment so it is really an ideal time to be moving jobs. I start in March. Yipppeeee. I got it!! Wed, 19 Feb 2014 01:31:25 EST Am I too dumb?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5627562 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/3/l233597401.jpg"> <BR> I grew up believing I was really stupid. As well as being self conscious about my weight as a kid I also was very self conscious about feeling really dumb. Which is one of the reason's I used to not talk often. I mean I did block so much out, that is how I handled my childhood. I did have it drummed in my head from a young age that I was : "an imbecile, retarded,lunatic, cretin etc" referring to dumb. And I have believed...

We all like a little recognition now and again !! Most will probably never admit that, but I believe it is true. It's like you hold the door open for someone and they say "thank you". It's funny, but it is in ways a common decency thing to do "to hold a door open when someone is coming behind you". That's cool, but then automatically the person says thank you!! Which also is normal. But I am a person who will hold the door open ...

I am going to make this year an eventful year. Of getting my self all ready to face turning fifty. I am going to show the scales that they got a little side tracked and went in the wrong direction. After weeks of eating bad choices and from not being very active to allow for all the wrong foods I over indulged in. Yes I didn't hold back, that's me I do things excessively. If I am going to do something I like to do it in style-well to the e...

I hope you had a wonderful christmas and that the new year has started off with good health and peace. And that you didn't put on too many kilos like I am sure i have. But that is christmas for you anyway. A fun time, but we pay for it later. I think it is worth it though!! <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/0/l1092315569.jpg"> <BR> I am still in christmas mode, I haven't got back into my healthy living just yet.

Fri, 3 Jan 2014 01:47:34 EST Actions speak louder than words, and lets avoid the christmas pounds http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5558661 Hi Sparkies, it's the weekend again-yay!!! How have you been ?? I have been pretty good. Although I said I was having a little christmas break I am still sparking and still keeping as active as possible. And it has been one tiring week, i have been walking here there and everywhere!! I don't drive so that means getting buses,trains and walking . My son drives me places a bit and I am so lucky to have such a great son. My daughter is great too, my kids are so cool. My son gave me an early chri... Fri, 6 Dec 2013 21:32:01 EST A bit of a christmas break for me~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5555339 Hi Sparkies, <BR> how are you doing?? I almost did a blog a week or so ago. But changed my mind. It is a really hot day here, nice if you can just relax, but murder to walk in. I have got to the stage lately that I am not doing my eating healthy crusade . I am not giving up , it is just not working right now. And I would rather not lose a bit of weight before christmas just to pile it back on over christmas. I think sometimes it can be better not to lose it in the first place if it's just goi... Mon, 2 Dec 2013 19:21:53 EST Is the grass really greener,on the other side?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5547409 For the last few days we have had one of our rabbits on the loose. We have two girls and two boy rabbits. And we used to let the boys roam free in the back yard. We have a great back yard for pets,and there is a hill with so much grass and things for them to eat. But don't ask me why but they are just not satisfied. They always would sooner or later find a way out onto one of the neighbours properties or out on the street. Plus they ate half of Dwayne's tress he was proudly growing and his ve...

I've been here, but still trying to get back on top again. I think I am back to my usual old self now. And got rid of that downer that took me hostage and wouldn't let me laugh or smile or have fun. But I didn't like being held hostage by miserable moods. So I broke free, and I'm back!!! <BR> Princess and Crystal my babies love sitting on the desk when I'm at the computer. I am not sure if Sammy lets them sit there with h...

I know, I hate to admit it. And I was a little embarrassed about my dark poem blog. Thank you for your comments,and to the sparkies that had never written a comment on my blogs before-thank you <em>2</em> That's me blushing BTW. To the readers that say or think that positiivity wins all the way, well I agree in one aspect. I try to keep my positive side at most times. But realistically I do feel down at times.

Well it is Saturday yet again and I have just come from facebook. I shouldn't really be online right now, the house is a mess and we are having family around but I am not sure which day today or tomorrow and what time. My sister will text a short time before she intends to come, and if I say can you come a bit later or tomorrow then she might say she'll come next weekend. That's just the way it goes with my lovely sister. As for my brother well I am picking he will come to... Fri, 8 Nov 2013 18:54:17 EST An Interesting Week~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5534543 Today is my beautiful daughter Samantha's 17th birthday. It is hard to believe she is seventeen. And it is amazing to think that seventeen years ago I brought this beautiful girl into this world. Children just grow so fast , and in that time we all are aging as well. No, I can't say that I really feel old. I've celebrated 49 birthday's and I am still young at heart. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/8/l1858234765.jpg"> <BR> This picture was taken in January. I was dressi...

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 ...

It was a long weekend here, today was labour day. Labour referring to work, not being in labour!! Just being silly. Being in labour, well I've been there done that. And my days of doing that are well and truely gone. I have two amazing kids who are incredibly cool kids. Even though Dwayne is no longer a kid. Sammy will be seventeen soon. And that is hard to believe. Kids just grow up so fast. Although I seem to have had more time with Dwayne growing up. Whereas Sammy seemed...

I am looking after my great nephew Deklyn tonight. He is seven, and a pretty cool kid. This is a picture of Deklyn and I one time he stayed, about a year ago. I like mucking around with the camera on the computer and so does he. I really find there is never any reason to get bored, bored is equivalant to boring.

And scales are great at showing us our little "indiscretions". Like when we have not been as good as we want to be. I think I could be completely grey by the time I get down twelve kilos. when I get to redye my hair. Okay, the truth is that does not bother me so much. I might even go over twelve before I do my hair. But I do want to get down twelve kilos. That is only one g...

Not related to the blog at all. It's Friday guys, no need to have a connection or a reason. This was the year 2003, I remember because I went out with this weird psycho guy.

I am a little tired right now and thought "blog, blog about it". So I think I will!!

I've just been catching up with sparkie friends and thought I should write a blog. No topic just a blog. <BR> I've just got the kids tea ready and thought I would get my tea ready too. I wasn't sure what I was going to have. Although I am making sure I always have something healthy in the house for my healthy options.

Well, I have been but not as much as I was a few weeks ago. And you know it doesn't matter what I say it is the actions at the end of the day that are going to make me lose weight. I can fill the pantry and fridge up with healthy food options. I can have the treadmill sitting here in the kitchen as it is. Have my cute colourful dumbells sitting by the computer. But the treadmill isn't going to do the exercise for me. The dumbells aren't going to li...

I got to go out yesterday, although it didn't go as expected or planned. But hey that is how it goes-nothing really goes as we think it will. While I was on the train I was thinking about the grass being greener on other pastures. And I am not a jealous person, I really don't like jealousy. I think that is a negative emotion I just don't like. I am a kiwi and sometimes I thin...

Me and my little Princess(Wincey Woo) are sitting here at the computer. She is a bit of a lickaholic. She loves licking us, except none of us like being licked. It's Friday night and the weather outside is wet, with thunder and lightening. The thunder was so loud earlier, I got some candles ready incase we had a power cut. Some places did, but we didn't. So we got to watch our movies. I got dvd's out . Sammy and I watched the new Oz movie, and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3. Yes...

Especially when you are walking two chihuahua-gremlins. Who bark at every ,living creature and every thing that moves. <BR> The walk was tiring, yet I've done it enough times to be used to it. We did walk briskly, well the girls wanted to hurry, so they pulled on the leashes and said "come on mummy". <BR> I haven't done a great deal of walki...

A weird day, a mixed day it was a little like April Fools day mixed with a Black Friday. Should I scream or maybe I should laugh. Coz at the end of it, nobody got hurt-well nobody died. <BR> First, I woke up to feelings of depression and anxiety. Instead of jumping out of bed and facing the day. I lay there with a sore stomach and not feeling up to going out as I had planned. But I decided to weigh-in and expecting to have gained weight, I had lost it. So that's surely got t...

It's Saturday and I love the weekend . I can do whatever I want and there is no routine. I just don't like routines and rules. I had a different client yesterday and I was nervous before hand. I sometimes do get a little nervous when I am going to have a new client. But here I was lying there instead of getting up. There is an art festival on that I decided to go to. But I was feeling too nervous to face anything outside ...

For me, it has been a pretty good week. I am not sure whether I have eaten as healthily as I could have, or whether it is just becoming a habit and I aren't noticing. I must admit a few weeks ago I wouldn't have gone through a couple of 200gram bags of dried apricots. But they are one of my favourite new foods I am eating, and I love them. They have no added sugar, but they have added sulphur dioxide to keep them fresh. So in that way they are not as goo...

Not something that we will ever see in our life time. Yet so many of us would love nothing better. Than for the whole world to live in peace. Where people cared about each other. No jails would exist because there was no crime. No need to lock your doors, or be inside before it got dark because nobody would brake in to your house and beat you up or rob you and trash your house. The streets would be safe for everyone because all that were ... Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:22:40 EST Death of a celebrity~*~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5463520 This week I heard the very sad news about a reality tv lady's death by suicide.

I am glad Wednesday is over, the second part of the week this week is pretty cruisey. Speaking of cruisey, I had some annual leave in February and since I got back to work, I've been basically hanging out for my next leave. I have been in this job for eight years now. I am at the stage now I need a change. Getting myself in tip top condition should open a few doors in the work department I think/hope!!! So I am on a mission to get into shape. My main... Wed, 21 Aug 2013 01:23:40 EST The weekend is ending, but oh what a week!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5458656 The week started off with me winning $200 on keno. Which of course was wonderful. Work kept me busy for the week.I went up for a nice bush walk twice which I hadn't been to for quite a few years. I always looked forward to going back up there. The first day just Dwayne and I went, and it was tiring but good. The second day we convinced Samantha to come and we took the dogs. Sammy found it hard, but she completed it. I was very proud of her, because it was quite out of her comfort zone, but sh... Sun, 18 Aug 2013 08:00:32 EST Who said green tea is horrible and tastes like putty?? Okay I said that then>> http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5453570 Hello Sparkies, I hope everyone is enjoying the week no matter what it has to offer. We all have a different road to travel and it is amazing the more we think about "anything". Thinking is so cool, it is great for the brain. We do it without thinking, our brains control so much of our existance. But when we actually think and let our mind wander. It can go in so many different directions. Thinking can alter so much of what we do and what we don't do. Whether we are impulsive-just do things w...

Wed, 7 Aug 2013 01:39:15 EST A great Sunday~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5443906 We went to a really nice park today. My son Dwayne, Samantha, myself and Crystal and Princess the dogs. It was really great to get out , and it is always good to get Sammy out of the house. It took alot of persuasion to get Sammy to actually come out with us. She is not comfortable leaving the house with her anxiety. She always wants to go shopping when we go, but that is all. <BR> We had a wonderful time, the weather was nice, the park was lovely. Although Dwayne looked it up online and it ...

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:20:44 EST The day After~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5428653 Thanks for the lovely comments after that earthquake. It was really big and the biggest one that I have ever experienced. There were lots of aftershocks. Some that we didn't even feel. There has been damage in Wellington City. I'm not sure how much, they are still assessing it. <BR> New Zealand had some big earthquakes a couple of years ago-in one of our biggest cities Christchurch. People were killed and the city was badly damaged. Lots of homes are still not repaired and people are still i... Sun, 21 Jul 2013 21:07:01 EST Blogging and an earthquake hit, it was big!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5427868 I had no idea what to expect when weighing in this morning. Foodwise I have had a couple of not so good days. I have had quite a good week with exercising. When I had a look on the scales earlier in the week I had gone from 114.8 to 115.2. So today I wasn't sure which way it would go. And I am at 115.1. So I will see how next Sunday goes. I am adding water to my plan now. I know I had lost without water, but I also know water is great for so many reasons-including when trying to lose weight. ... Sun, 21 Jul 2013 01:14:11 EST It's been a good day~*~ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5425998 I had a bad day with eating on Wednesday , then a not thaaaaaat good day yesterday-but not as bad as Wednesday. We did the shopping last night.I'm not sure if I've said before but Dwayne(son 26) likes to go shopping at night-less crowd and more relaxed atmosphere. Dwayne and I are like flatmates-we share expenses-rather than him at 26 still at home. And when we go groucery shopping we are like three flatmates shopping. Samantha puts all sorts of not so healthy options in the trolley, Dwayne g... Fri, 19 Jul 2013 03:01:14 EST
