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

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 . . .

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 . . .

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
The Long Haul
Monday, July 12, 2010      2 comments

Well – the kitchen is out and the resultant mess cleared up. I had forgotten what hard work it all is and how long it all takes – clear all the cupboards and find places to put everything. My one tiny spare room is stuffed with stuff. Set up s... Read more

In my Inbox this morning along with Personal messages and of course Spark messages was an email from the Rosemary Conley website to which I subscribe. Normally I don’t find these emails more than passingly helpful but this morning’s message gav... Read more

I spent today on the beach with some friends - an ex-ballerina who now teaches Pilates and a Feldenkrais practitioner. I have allowed myself to become massively unfit and I really want to change that as far as possible and become stronger and r... Read more
