Confession . . .
Friday, March 12, 2010      3 comments

Somewhere along the course of the last few months of family difficulties my motivation here has just disappeared. I’ve been trying to muster some enthusiasm but my absolute preference at the moment is to spend pretty well all my time in bed – n... Read more
Happy - happy - happy :-))

I am so-o happy to be back in my own home this week and in charge of my own habits - even if things go awry I know who to blame! So today I've walked a lot, exercised to Coach Nicole's DVD which is my current favourite and doubly so that I am ha... Read more
Doing so-o much better
Thursday, February 18, 2010      7 comments

Another week spent trying to keep things straight. As this week was planned - as opposed to a last minute dash to a disastrous time last week - I t armed myself with a refillable water bottle and food for myself for the week - daytime food tha... Read more
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

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
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 . . .

. . . 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 . . .

. . . . 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
