Well - the soup has worked it's magic and I am back on track. I also caught a Spark blog from LOSEBUDDHABELLY regarding the set-up of a new team - The Slowest Loser. I feel it's for me at the moment. I need to stop trying too hard - or ind... Read more
End of second week of Soups
Sunday, May 23, 2010      2 comments

I'm really happy I did this soup fortnight - its a new routine and a much needed diversion from planning three meals a day. I love having a pot of soup to dip into when I'm hungry. When I took up the suggestion from a Spark friend I really didn... Read more
Halfway through my soup fortnight
Saturday, May 15, 2010      7 comments

I could ask if there’s something magical about soup (my Grandmother would say so!) but I have realized that a pot of nourishing goodies on my stove offers me the chance to keep my sugar levels stabilized with the minimum of difficulty. I have al... Read more
Soup Fortnight - Day 1
Friday, May 07, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday went well - I ate four large bowls of the Soup of the Day - miso soup with tofu, mushrooms, cabbage, chili, soy sauce and shredded coconut plus rice noodles. Later in the day I added fresh prawns which poached deliciously in the stock ... Read more
A Fresh Start

I'm happy to be able to type that title - I have been so close to giving up that I thought my next blog would be a farewell to those I have come to care about here. I have been having a bad time with myself. I have been disconnected and ha... Read more
'Marooned' in Prague
Thursday, April 29, 2010      2 comments

Worse places to be stuck than Prague of course but hard to enjoy the extra week with little info and the need to be constantly in touch with/visiting - airline – airport -or agent. So-o many people having such hard times with the urgent need to... Read more

I am just so happy to be feeling better - have been tested for various things - some on the scary side but so far all results are negative. Phew! I am lucky to have a friend who is a Feldenkrais practitioner who has been working on my muscles ... Read more
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
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
