Jeans are less snug, but I am not at my goal yet. Some of the strategies for last month did not really work out that great, I am not that good at tracking that consistently. Or nixing sweets completely. I've taken that on board, and plan to cont... Read more
Last autumn I started jogging. It was amazing! Yes, at first I felt incredibly unfit. I was huffing and puffing along lobster-red in the face.. I had to take short breaks on nearly every bend in the road, and I was not really convinced this jogg... Read more
I am back!
Since my jeans started to feel mysteriously snug, I decided to come back sooner rather than later.

Dearest Spark friends
Life has been busy/demanding lately. Changes at work, allergies acting up, our little family coming down with colds and bugs one after the other, paperwork, taxes, more paperwork ahead. You get the idea..
I'm coping well enough, but in orde... Read more
I craved potato chips..

Getting my diet back on track
I'm moving more than ever, eating a healthy diet swimming in fresh vegetables, fish, whole-grains and legumes and.. ..I'm gaining weight! (I haven't been on a scale, so I'm not sure how much exactly. The way my clothes fit tells me I have gained... Read more
New year, fresh start
As usual I've indulged over the holidays and have strayed far, far away from my normal healthier habits. I've been staying up late, enjoying good company and rich food, and my butt has been firmly glued to a chair or a sofa more often than it ha... Read more
Bruised but not broken
I'm either an incurable optimist or a very slow learner (Or both!). Regardless, today I'm very grateful that my rear is very well padded. As much as I had high hopes for my new spiky shoes, I've found they simply won't cut it on very hard ice. A... Read more
Sunny Sunday jog
Today was a gorgeous day. I took my new shoes out for a 5K walk/jog. Almost all the ice had melted by the time I was out the door, so I unscrewed the spikes as I don't want to wear them down by running on bare pavement. They are not a perfect fi... Read more
I'm not tracking, but I am on track for Christmas
Stress has been tossing me around like a plastic bag caught in a hurricane lately. I don't even know where to begin, so instead of elaborating too much I'll just conclude that I've been busy.
Good news is:
I'm almost done preparing for th... Read more
I need some. Not too much. Preferably at night.
Last night was not too bad. I got to sleep around 01.30 in the morning and slept soundly until around 07.30.
I had to dig deep in my medicine cabinet to be able to sleep at a more reason... Read more
Cutting back on tracking. (with pictures from Fridays jog)
A very stressful week is over. Thankfully I am doing better now! (Insomnia has not left the building completely, but hey, at least this means I have peace and quiet to write blogs in the middle of the night.)
I've honestly not been in a ve... Read more
