SEPTEMBERWINNA's SparkPeople Blog SEPTEMBERWINNA's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community THREE SISTERS My daughter drove me up to the the blue mountains today to visit the three sisters. I have not been there for a long time(years) and when I saw all the tourist buses and people all the way from Japan I felt a little ashamed that I lived so close to this beauty and didnt visit it much. <BR> <BR> Anyway that inspired me to walk the giant staircase down the side of the mountain and across to the first sister. The walk back up was tough. I was puffing and panting but so were all the skinny peopl... Thu, 19 Sep 2013 03:18:19 EST Back to work I have decided enough is enough and its time to get back to work. Working on my goals that is. Spring is in the air and with it brings horrid hayfever but lovely weather. I am choosing to try to keep my hayfever in check as much as possible but it is time to get outside and exercise again and grab some vitamin D. Sun, 15 Sep 2013 03:59:54 EST After the migraine Finally the migraine is gone and I am only left with a headache and a burning sensation down my neck, back and shoulder. Yes!! I will be able to get back to my walking program and also be able to take the time in the kitchen to prepare food. <BR> <BR> When I am sick I know I need the best nourishment but I feel too ill to prepare it and nobody else will do it for me. It is like a vicious circle. I need the good food to feel better but I am too sick to get up to do it. So now whilst I feel go... Sat, 4 May 2013 19:38:09 EST Not so proud of me I am not winning today and I am not very proud of myself. I am going through some emotional stress at the moment and my eating is suffering. I know I eat the wrong food when I am stressed so why cant I stop????? Mon, 29 Apr 2013 00:24:28 EST Proud of ME!!! I am so proud of myself today. <BR> <BR> I had trouble waking up. I did not want to exercise but I put my gear on anyway. I am currently doing the 5k challenge and I was in ni mood to have to try to run weighing 140kgs because it can hurt.( although i will only run 5 mins total out of 25) <BR> <BR> I moped around a bit then I decided to search spark videos for something not so hard as the 5k. I settled on the 12min core chair exercise routine. Okay. Good. Did it. I am feeling proud I accomp... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 19:14:12 EST Moving forward Sometimes progress seems so slow. I need to focus on just moving forward. I went for a short trail walk and got scared off by someone telling me that there are deadly brown snakes around. These things can kill you within 30 mins. I want to get past this but now I am scared. <BR> Maybe I should try to find somewhere else to walk? <BR> <BR> Any way my focus was going to be doing the 5k challenge but running is really hurting my knees and spending 50 mins to walk it on my treadmill can be a bit... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 02:30:19 EST the start I have had a slow start and only lost a few kilos but the exercise I am doing is making me feel much better. I feel more flexible and although I have some muscle soreness I dont have injuries. Yippee!!!!! <BR> I thought more weight would come off in the beginning but I can feel my body shape has changed and it could be because my muscles are finally being toned slightly. <BR> I want it to happen faster because I need my health to improve quickly but I am happy I am going forward and not backw...
