Getting back at it
Wednesday, July 05, 2017      5 comments

I've been massively occupied with my partner who has been ill for weeks with what turns out to be a string of coincidences seemingly connected to his heart - complicated and debilitating but fortunately not fatal as it turns out. He is not an ea... Read more

In an effort to step up to the promise which I made to myself, I was much more consistent with movement this week ... Read more
One pound down and walking
Tuesday, May 02, 2017      7 comments

We have had the May weekend in the UK - just May Day added on to the weekend but a load of treats and celebration events to be had. All very tempting and not at all easy to stay on track. I HAVE tried but I thought I had failed - however, today ... Read more
Time to re-jig my Spark life
Monday, April 24, 2017      7 comments

I'm joining my good Sparkfriend 1ZIPPYC in re-vamping my goals and pulling myself up where I've slipped. My plan is : - - Be more consistent with water intake - I don't do badly but perfect would be better. - Master a new fitness feat - wa... Read more
Motivation at last
Wednesday, March 22, 2017      4 comments

I've been very unmotivated lately. No valid excuses at all - I just hate the dull skies we have mostly had here and the wet and windy weather that seem to go with them. I am pretty well on track with food but have not been exercising nearly as m... Read more
Glimpse of Spring
Sunday, February 19, 2017      8 comments

Really lovely day yesterday - bright sun and unseasonably warm - really raised my mood and motivated a lovely long walk. Also reminded me of better days ahead - even though, sadly, all has changed again and today is not one of them! However, I b... Read more
Definite slapped wrist!

Wonderful post-Christmas visit from my DS, DIL and grandchildren. Loads of 'mad' fun plus lots of walking as they just hit a few days of great weather. They - and the good weather - left this morning. The problem - of course - was food!!! All m... Read more
Well well :-)

I've been massively occupied with my younger son's family this year. They've been so unlucky with sickness - and nothing small - so I've been 'called in' for long periods as I'm the only grandparent with free time and they wanted consistency for... Read more
All's well that ends well

Scary moment yesterday. Was called to my younger son's. GS1 -11 years old - had been playing with a friend the evening before and a dog belonging to the friend's grandparents jumped up in what really was a game and somehow ripped GS's ear. Lots ... Read more
Hallo again - finally!

I am SO glad to be back on Spark now all my technology problems are sorted. My little transformer laptop that I could use with or without its keyboard dock is now back in action after a long stay in 'PC hospital' and I have acquired a backup dev... Read more

I'm ashamed to say that I have only just become aware of SparkPeople TV. Silly Me! Dunno how I missed it emoticon ... Read more
Two more pounds - finally!
Friday, April 08, 2016      7 comments

Pleased to have dropped two pounds after several weeks of nothing. Interesting that now I'm getting past a sad and difficult few weeks, I can feel that my system has 'woken up' in some way which may explain the loss. Whatever it is, it's definit... Read more
Back at it
Tuesday, April 05, 2016      6 comments

Tough week last week meant that I left Week 4 of the Bootcamp until this week. So I'll be finishing what I started but I hope to then get going on something less formal again. Formality doesn't suit me really and I'll probably be better off choo... Read more
Bootcamp - end of Week 3
Sunday, March 27, 2016      6 comments

I've been having a few issues in my 'other' life lately and have limped through 3 weeks of the 4 week bootcamp - rather half-heartedly it has to be said. If I were a better person I would have risen above the issues and done a better job. But I'... Read more
Bootcamp - Week 2
Monday, March 14, 2016      5 comments

I got through Week 1 of the bootcamp videos and did the required 30 minutes cardio daily - some days more. In fact I actually enjoyed it most of the time. A sense of achievement more than anything. Loss? ZILCH ... Read more
