Changing negative to positive
Sunday, February 14, 2010      4 comments

Woke up today knowing that my negative mood of the past days has to change. I was lucky to fall over a blog from another Sparker having a really bad time (there must be hundreds of us with difficulties of one sort of another) and determined to ... Read more
The Spark book
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      6 comments

Oh how grateful I am for 'that' book. It has really re-inforced my determination and - as I have said previously in a blog - reminded me what I am doing and why. I'm reading it in the same way I read when I was studying at university so long a... Read more
The here and now
Monday, February 01, 2010      3 comments

I have no patience and hate waiting to get better when ill - and I have been pretty unwell for several weeks. Nothing I could do except rest up and wait . . . . and finally I can see that the moment is coming where - when someone asks 'How are y... Read more
Not a particularly good day
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
Monday, January 25, 2010      0 comments

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
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 . . .
Saturday, December 26, 2009      2 comments

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 – 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 . . .
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      2 comments

. . . . 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 don’t blog enough – 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 – yeah – I know – strange number but I’m in the UK and am accustomed to si... Read more
Behaving myself
Tuesday, December 08, 2009      1 comments

I’ve been away for a few days in great countryside – we don’t have nearly as much of that here in the UK as you all have there – so it’s a real joy. I’ve done my garden there – ‘put it to bed for the winter’ and walked in both rain and sun roun... Read more
