Day 13 - I was trying so hard!

Thursday, September 16, 2010      3 comments

I have a very irregular free lance job and it's always difficult to know when work will turn up. In lots of ways it suits my irregular personality but is not at all good for my weight loss. I have unexpectedly been allocated a number of visiti... Read more

Days 10/11/12 Onward and upward

Tuesday, September 14, 2010      2 comments

I’ve been working away from home with little time to organize my food and involving a certain amount of socializing and eating out so I had difficulties with food choices. One day was calorifically disastrous because of a large lunch served to... Read more

Day 9 Busy - Busy - Busy :-((

Friday, September 10, 2010      2 comments

One of those days where nothing quite 'jigsaws' properly. Promised myself I'd do some serious regular blogging this month but we all know that things don't always turn out. Just back from the country and off away to work tomorrow for a few... Read more

Day 8 - Time in the country

Thursday, September 09, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday I came to my little house which I love. I am lucky to have it – it makes me calm and gives me respite from other stuff in my life. Yesterday I walked by the sea for two hours on the edge of a beautiful bay. This a lovely Jurassic co... Read more

Day 7 - a very British Feast

Wednesday, September 08, 2010      2 comments

Went to a celebration of British Food last night - a British Feast given by Sussex University for my foreign students. All fresh food/organic/minimum food miles and all the veggies foraged from the Sussex fields. Totally delicious - an inventiv... Read more

Day 6 - Up and at 'em

Tuesday, September 07, 2010      3 comments

Up early yesterday day with energy to spare. It was a really sunny morning so I walked by the sea just in case the sunshine didn’t last. Definitely a good move as it did, indeed, rain later. Did some time on the static bike and some strength ... Read more

Day 5 - a really lovely day with loads of fun

Monday, September 06, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday was great! Strength exercises earIy and a Pre-breakfast bowl of low fat yoghourt with pomegranate seeds and a quarter serving of home-made smoothie as a kind of sauce. I needed to be prepared as I was cooking a shared brunch at a fr... Read more

Day 4 - better after yesterday's hiccup

Sunday, September 05, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday was the opposite of the previous day. I knew I was going to have a busy but irregular day so I had a substantial breakfast –hardboiled egg mashed with 2 tsps of extra light mayo on toast + alfalfa sprouts and chopped plum tomato with ... Read more

Day 3 - a more difficult day - but why?

Saturday, September 04, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday I got up and did time on the exercise bike, some strength exercises and stretching and then went walking by the sea. I didn’t want to do any of it, truth be told, don’t know why but counted it was ‘one of those days’ and got on with it... Read more

Day 2 - still doing OK

Friday, September 03, 2010      4 comments

Good day yesterday – again! emoticon Kept within my calorie range – as far as I can tell. We went out to ear... Read more

Day 1 successfully done

Thursday, September 02, 2010      3 comments

Not a bad start. Yesterday I stayed within my calorie range – exercised and walked although not as much as I intended. Just a Spark generated selection of ST exercises and a 20 minute walk. Intended to do more but I told myself I was resting ... Read more

OK - here I go . . .

Wednesday, September 01, 2010      3 comments

September is a new month - and I blush to add the beginning of my second year on Spark. I've made very little progress really although I've learned a lot and developed better habits which is, of course, a large part of the whole point. I a... Read more

Have been away from home – and this site – on and off all summer. There were things I just had to do and in the way that life has – they just kept piling up. Of course I could have said ‘no’ to some of them – ‘NO’ that little word that I... Read more

AAAAAAgh!! I think . . .

Monday, August 02, 2010      4 comments

One of my resolutions/streaks here was to get off my couch. Well I haven't had time to look at it lately - never mind sit on it. Work on my new kitchen took up a lot of time and energy and although there is still work I need to do - tiling... Read more

Escaping to the Common

Sunday, July 25, 2010      4 comments

It was raining when I got up this morning – ‘Pity’ I thought. I’ve been so busy in my little house that I haven’t had time to enjoy the glorious countryside here and with about an hour’s work left to do I had planned to walk afterwards. I decid... Read more
