A wedding - finally!!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      10 comments

My 'non'-daughter-in-law was determined to be what she called a 'real life' daughter-in-law and wife by the time she was forty. They've been together for nearly 20 years and have two children and so much history behind them. So - last minute as... Read more

Another day - another mood on 'my' common

Friday, November 18, 2011      8 comments

Today is grey and it was drizzling earlier but in my new frame of mind Im not letting the weather stop me. So boots and a wax jacket and off I went. There was mist over the hills and no one around probably because I was later than I inten... Read more

This morning I went out really early to walk on the common outside my front gate. I was going out for the day with my partner and wanted to get the walking done. Good thing I did it early because it started pouring with rain later in the mornin... Read more

I'be been so busy this weekend that I lost it - AGAIN! Focus, that is. This happens so easily - something in my head says 'OK there's an excuse now so I don't need to think about cardio.' I do know that's rubbish and I also know that if I don't... Read more

And the walking continues . . .

. . hoping it'll really become a daily habit and not an intermittent habit as it has been. Today I went - again - to the sea at the bottom of my square - but very early when both life and Nature are very different. All the sailing boats (most... Read more

Walking by the sea

Wednesday, November 09, 2011      1 comments

I went walking by the sea at the bottom of my road today. It was not intended - I meant to walk on the Downs behind Brighton but for various reasons it wasn't to be. So - determined to get in my 60 minute walk somewhere I enjoy, I just too... Read more

In my quest to gee myself up into some worthwhile cardio Im starting to do some long walks in beautiful places that I enjoy not hard here in Sussex in the UK. Ive been trying to remember why I stopped doing that but there is no why real... Read more

Progress made

I seem to have a change of attitude - long may it last! I was obliged to go out to supper last night unavoidable a longstanding arrangement - and I really didn't want to go because I've had a few pretty good Spark days and didn't want ... Read more

I had come to a point where I was ashamed to be a member here Ive never lost a great deal of weight with Spark through my own most grievous fault, but continued on the basis that slow weightloss was better than no weightloss. However I have ... Read more

Searching for focus

Wednesday, August 31, 2011      6 comments

Lately, because I was much engulfed with caring for my grandchildren to give their parents a hand, Ive lost focus, eaten far too much and pretty well given up exercising apart from the cardio that young children inevitably provoke. They are d... Read more
