Tuesday, January 26, 2010      4 comments

Nothing compared to some people but am horrified to find that whilst I knew I had put on a bit of weight whilst ill I stuck to my promise to weigh myself this morning and I have put back five whole pounds. Sad but will just have to get them off... Read more
Tiny steps forward

I've been pretty unwell for most of this month. Despite having the vaccination, I caught Swine Flu from one of my foreign students at the end of December which in itself didn't seem too bad. I started the Bootcamp on Jan 3rd and very quickly de... Read more

Neither of these things is the end of the world although it kind of feels like it at the moment. As I live in the UK my Spark Book is not going to be with me before February 17th. I was looking forward to it - to actually having it in my h... Read more

Well - I did Day 1 but will do again later - frightening how out of condition I am. Can jump but not hop (bad balance) - need to practise - a LOT. As for puffing and panting - well - less said the better! Weighing in at 198 pounds - waist ... Read more

My flu turned out to be Swine Flu - I have been feeling really bad and indeed still do. I gave up thinking about what I ate and although I haven't eaten large quantities of food none of it has really been much good for me principally because I ... Read more

I was laid up with flu over this holiday and whilst it was no fun, I am no great lover of Christmas - (yeah - I know - 'terrible' - 'spoilsport' - etc) - and it kept me away from the jollity and from the FOOD - hoorah!!!! No temptation to eat or... Read more

. . . or not! I have a new scheme to keep me on track while I'm busy running up to Christmas and doing a lot of worthwhile but to me boring domestic chores. I started going off track out of boredom with household tasks and the new ... Read more
My airing cupboard
Sunday, December 20, 2009      2 comments

About 18 months ago I declared war on my airing cupboard Ė well actually on myself if truth be told. All my bedlinen and towels etc were in fact on the shelves but higgledy piggledy in no order and the more I searched for things the worse it al... Read more

Very disappointed in myself . . .
Monday, December 14, 2009      6 comments

A very bad weekend. No point in going into details - a weekend away with a friend and more food than I have had for many weeks sums it up. I thought I was prepared and I don't how I let it happen. All I can do is put it behind me and get back... Read more

Friday, November 13, 2009      4 comments

I don't recognize myself right now. I am more and more suprised that I am still sparked and have had quite a run of days where I am just not struggling with food and exercise as I would have expected. The nutrition tracker keeps me on the ... Read more
