Things that go bump in the night
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
