Things that go bump in the night

Sunday, August 05, 2012      10 comments

A couple of nights ago, I was on my way to bed, when I encountered my small cat, Percy. He was sitting on his cushion on a wooden bentwood chair in the hall, yowling loudly as it rocked backwards and forwards, shaken by an unseen hand. My hair s... Read more

Recovered my equilibrium

Saturday, August 04, 2012      11 comments

Yesterday was my weekly weigh-in day. So I went along to the usual place to weigh myself and they had had their scales mended so I used them. And according to these scales, I weigh four pounds more than I did last week when I used different scal... Read more

Don't ask

Friday, August 03, 2012      13 comments

I'm throwing 10 goodie beach balls. The idea is if you get one, throw it to another team member with a little note of hello and encouragement. Pass this on - we're sure to start a spark movement! I got this idea from KSCRAP You wa... Read more

Tomorrow's a big day

Thursday, August 02, 2012      8 comments

But I hope it will be smaller than last Friday. Yes, it's weigh in day and I may be a pound or two smaller. I've had a slightly patchy week, but I did do lots of exercise over the weekend, so here's hoping. Not having scales at home makes w... Read more

I'm in trouble

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      9 comments

I got held up at work tonight. Without going into details and I don't know that many details because I'm not a nerd, the intranet where I work has a new server and the thighbone isn't yet connected to the kneebone or something so if I'm putting ... Read more

Why I love the Spark

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      9 comments

It all adds up, this weight loss business. One of my colleagues looked me up and down today and told me I was 'looking good'. Now this is interesting. I did mention to her that I went to the gym Friday, Saturday and Sunday and also went for a wa... Read more

The trail of guilt

Monday, July 30, 2012      6 comments

One of my colleagues is no mean baker. Yesterday being Sunday, she had time to bake, and brought in the results, a large coconut cake. Well, I held out till 11.30 in the morning. All around me colleagues were stuffing their faces with cake ... Read more

Soggy bottom

Sunday, July 29, 2012      8 comments

Sounds like too much information? Not so. Lend me your ears. Actually forget about ears, but if someone can lend me a pair of feet, I'd be grateful. I went for a 90-minute footslog on Hampstead Heath this morning and mine are killing me. ... Read more

Don't just sit there watching the Olympics - win yourself some medals

Saturday, July 28, 2012      6 comments

Don't know about you but I feel inspired by the Olympics. I've been watching the men's road cycling and it's not entirely because of the wonderful view you get from behind the cyclists. Read more

Now this is what I joined Sparkpeople for

Friday, July 27, 2012      12 comments

Weigh-in day today and isn't it interesting that even when you've been eating carefully and exercising a fair bit, it feels like an absolute lottery. I always weigh in at a branch of Boots (pharmacy) and made a special journey to my usual ... Read more

Food hangovers

Thursday, July 26, 2012      7 comments

Anyone who's ever been on a binge knows about these. Oh yes. Forget the guilt, that passes all too quickly. A food hangover is the yucky horrible physically ill feeling you get the day after you've binged on rubbish. It might be chocolate,... Read more

Lassooed by a giant pretzel

Wednesday, July 25, 2012      1 comments

This morning, on my way to work, I was hailed by a bag of giant pretzels. 'Eat us, eat us,' they cried. Well, what can a foodie do? I invited them back to the office to meet my colleagues, and they were a roaring success. For an hour or two, eve... Read more

My thin colleague

Monday, July 23, 2012      5 comments

Today I've had the sort of day that you can be happy in. Not for any huge reason. But I'm being moved at work, to work with people I like a lot. The sun is shining, it's about 30C out there. This is why I joined Sparkpeople. A lot of the ti... Read more

Filling the gap

Sunday, July 22, 2012      2 comments

One thing I noticed recently is that suddenly there's a big gap in my life where food used to be. I don't have it as comfort or a sympathetic friend any more. While I only eat things I like, and take care to prepare my food carefully, I no longe... Read more

Fabulous day

Saturday, July 21, 2012      4 comments

It hasn't rained today (so far). For anyone who lives in the UK, that's a plus for a start, because so far this year we've had rain rain and more rain, which has been interspersed only with drizzle or hail. In short, it's been wet. Today ha... Read more
