Sunday, June 30, 2013      3 comments

I rarely buy books that offer suggestions for a routine for a healthier lifestyle. I needed motivation to stop myself slithering backwards and I’m amazed how well I’m getting on with this one. The ‘prescription’ for meals is either to follow the... Read more

Today's task on Spark Coach is to identify ways in which I waste time during the day and to fill at least some of that wasted time with activity. Should be an interesting exercise - I am either running about madly getting things done ... Read more
Focus needed - Part 2
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      5 comments

Well –yesterday I said I was looking for focus. Today it arrived in the form of The Spark Solution, ordered so long ago that I had forgotten about it – Spark DVDs and books seem to take a long time to be delivered here even from Amazon UK. Total... Read more

Almost a month since I blogged and a lot more than that since I weighed myself (April 30 – 191 pounds). I seem to have been beset by problems since then – family difficulties and domestic disasters (well – semi-disasters) that have needed dealin... Read more
London - such a good time!
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      11 comments

I’ve just spent few days working in central London. I used to live on the edge of London and visited often. These working trips are always hard work but there is also time to walk around my old haunts – visit a few restaurants (oh-oh!) that I kn... Read more

Over the past months, with my elder son’s help – I have cleared our loft and my ‘office’ at home – sent more junk and papers than I thought were possible for recycling – cleared a zillion items of clothing out of the bedroom (OH is a terrible h... Read more
Progress - hoorah!

As I’ve mentioned I only weigh once a month and this month I haven’t been entirely well – nothing serious, just some kind of low grade bug. No energy and far far too much sleeping. However I have nonetheless managed to drop 6 pounds which is som... Read more

I’ve been away for a few days for the funeral of my best and dearest friend – someone I brought my children up with and with whom I shared the ups and downs of life. Sad –sad-sad - but these things are the pattern of life and I was glad to be th... Read more

Relaxed and going forward
Tuesday, February 05, 2013      5 comments

So here I still am – not following any extreme plan or putting myself through any pressure – I pretty well know by now what to do and what suits me. Guess that if I consider the knowledge I’ve accumulated here re food consumption and exercise I’... Read more
Keeping on . . .

. . . and very happy to find myself doing so. Dunno where my oomph went but it’s certainly been in hiding for a long while. I started entering food and movement into my trackers after New Year without actually worrying about cals in and out, jus... Read more
2013 - belatedly
Monday, January 14, 2013      10 comments

I’m finding it hard to get going here again and I had promised myself January would be the month when I started to re-group and lose some of my regained pounds. I know I’m too easily diverted and de-focused and the work involved in having fun ov... Read more

There was quite a lot on Spark yesterday about the support, encouragement and understanding that all of us give each other. Where – as someone asked – would we all be without each other? Indeed! I - for one - would be long gone. As it is, I... Read more
