Days 14 and 15 - making unnecessary difficulties
Friday, September 17, 2010      3 comments

So as I’ve already said I’m running a social programme for the various teachers I was allocated late on Tuesday afternoon. We’ve been having quite a lot of fun. Brighton’s always good for interest and entertainment - and history - but we’ve also... Read more
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

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

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 . . .
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
