Disappointment

Wednesday, January 06, 2010      3 comments

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

BOOT CAMP - wow that was hard work!!

Sunday, January 03, 2010      5 comments

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

Bad time

Wednesday, December 30, 2009      1 comments

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

It's an ill wind . . .

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

Food planning . . .

Monday, December 21, 2009      1 comments

. . . 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

Recouping . . .

. . . . thanks to you wonderful Sparkers. Several kind and bracing comments on my self-pitying blog made me re-think my day and get on with it. SO - Yesterday: stopped moaning about my bad weekend - did extra exercise - took care o... 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

Plodding on thanks to SparkPeople

Friday, December 11, 2009      3 comments

I donít blog enough Ė principally because I only really want to grizzle about slow progress and how boring is that for everyone? I really hoped to be 14lb down today Ė yeah Ė I know Ė strange number but Iím in the UK and am accustomed to si... Read more

Behaving myself

Tuesday, December 08, 2009      1 comments

Iíve been away for a few days in great countryside Ė we donít have nearly as much of that here in the UK as you all have there Ė so itís a real joy. Iíve done my garden there Ė Ďput it to bed for the winterí and walked in both rain and sun roun... Read more

The Sofa

Wednesday, December 02, 2009      1 comments

First of all Ė as we donít have Thanksgiving in the UK I have not been obliged to struggle with all those food temptations. Christmas will be another thing but we havenít got there yet. I thought I would dance down this road I started on wit... Read more

Struggling but trying to stay focused

Thursday, November 19, 2009      4 comments

I thought I was doing quite well at one point and I have been trying . . . . in fact Iíve upped my exercise (yes really!!) contained my alcohol consumption thanks to a very handy hint from another Spark person and kept a close eye (pretty succes... Read more

Who am I?

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

The light has come on . . .

Thursday, November 12, 2009      1 comments

I can hardly believe it but after a really rocky start here back in August it all seems to be coming good. Certainly no fireworks but very gentle weight loss through reasonable eating and just about enough exercise - cardio and strength. I am a... Read more

Sticking with it

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      3 comments

When I signed up for Spark People at the beginning of August this year I was determined to lose weight and I did, indeed, lose 6lbs in the first few weeks. Subsequently for no reason that I could really see I put back 5 of them. I had not... Read more
