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
Thursday, September 29, 2016      7 comments

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
Birthday Treats and Sins . . .
Thursday, March 10, 2016      8 comments

I never seem to manage to stick to just one birthday treat - always some one saying - 'Oh come on - another night out won't hurt!' Except that I don't resist wine and good food as I should. So - three days of celebrations instead of one and now ... Read more
28 Day Bootcamp
Monday, March 07, 2016      5 comments

Motivated by a new Sparkfriend - who has waded straight into this Bootcamp - I've started the 28 Day Bootcamp for the second time as a means of upping my exercise regime - sorely needed. I feel constantly guilty - if that's the word - about my ... Read more

Only eat things that have been broken into pieces; that way, all the calories fall out. emoticon... Read more
A Skating Party
Monday, February 29, 2016      5 comments

This is the beginning of my campaign for an increase in exercise levels with the intention of firming up my ageing muscles. Coincidentally I started by helping out at a childrens' skating party and even spent about 30 minutes on roller skates. I... Read more
