What would it be like...?
After almost an hour of attempting to get dressed, only to swiftly discard and throw to the floor every item I tried on from my wardrobe; I found myself wondering "What would it be like to just put on an outfit and like the way it looked, first ... Read more
Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!
2014 has been a crazy, eventful, rollercoaster, memorable, beauty of a year. Ups and downs, as it is with life. At 25 I'm learning a heck of a lot about myself, and the world around me. As of July this year (soon to be last year) I have been a m... Read more

Hello Again.... :-)
It has been a shockingly long time since I was active in this community! I've got myself on a good track the past couple of months and am really starting to feel the benefits! I'm a lot more conscious of what I eat now, and don't binge eat as mu... Read more
1 Year as Sparker!
Well folks, today is my 1 year SP anniversary. It's been a mega year, lots of ups and downs, losses and gains; but at the end of the day the highlight of it all is that I've learned ALOT - about myself, about food, about exercise.
The suga... Read more
Picked up a handful of choccie biscuits...
But put them back and made a green tea and grabbed a cereal bar instead!! This is my biggest accomplishment yet. Not the daily workouts, not the smaller portions, but this. Anything sweet is my biggest pitfall, I still find it hard to say no whe... Read more
On the Road to Success :)
I can feel it, the pure satisfaction that comes from gaining control of your life once and for all and no longer letting food rule it. Food used to dictate everything for me - my mood, how I treated my friends and family, my self-esteem, self-re... Read more
Hello 2012 :)
Instead of doing the usual New Years tradition and making a list of things I want to do next year like lose weight etc etc (you know those ones EVERYONE seems to have on their list?), Iím taking this evening to look back on all that I have done ... Read more
Step by step...
Good news to report, spark friends, I have made progress!! I haven't weighed yet so nothing to report on that front, but despite eating too much on Christmas day and boxing day (who doesn't?) I gave bounced back stronger than ever, working out f... Read more
Becoming the Change I Want to See.
Well my fellow Sparkers, I had a very productive day, put in an hour on the good old stat. bike - and got some reading time in while doing it!, got lots of errands done in town, had a good think and made a list of things I want to achieve (I'm a... Read more
It's been that long already?
So here we are again, I won't even do the old (and by now it really is old!) "I've been meaning to blog but other things got in the way" or "I've gone off track but am getting back on it now" that I usually do. I have been doing ok, but ok reall... Read more
Still here, sorry for the lack of blogging!
I'm not sure how often my blogs get read, but to those of you who drop by and give them a read and offer support, sorry I've been absent lately. It's been hard without the SP community spirit to push me on, but I'm back with a vengeance and read... Read more
Four lbs Lighter!
So I weighed today, expecting to weigh the same, but found myself 4 lbs lighter!! I haven't weighed in 3 weeks now, so 'm really glad to step on the scales again and see a loss Read more
Time to Get Back in the Game!
So things have been a little crazy lately. I went to my work trial and hated it instantly, but gave it some time to see what came of it. They seriously mistreated the horses and expected me to do the same. It just wasn't somewhere I could work, ... Read more
Do it for Yourself.
I'm heading for my work trial tomorrow, I'm so excited and nervous all at once . I really feel like this is ... Read more
