Gardened to a standstill

Monday, December 03, 2012      6 comments

We had perfect weather yesterday. Still, hot, but not too hot in the shade, and it stayed that way until well into the evening. And I spent 7 hours in the garden. We've lived in our place for 11 years now and the garden was very neglected when I... Read more

Musings upon sedentaryism

Sunday, December 02, 2012      6 comments

I have big plans for the garden today although I am still stiff from Saturday. I have forty bedding plants to put in with the hope that they will brighten up the garden over the next month. The weather was too rough yesterday, tempestuous nor we... Read more

You have to laugh...

Saturday, December 01, 2012      7 comments

... Or you'd cry. It was a busy day today. I went to Zumba though I was late leaving. I was glad I decided to go, we did a Gangam Style routine that made me laugh out loud. Then I spent quite a lot of the day working in the garden. I did 25 fli... Read more

That month

This is that month. Summer. My birthday. Christmas. End of year. The month before each of my parents died. That month. ... Read more

FitBit Day 2: familiarisation

Sunday, November 25, 2012      9 comments

DAY 2 of FitBit One, the first with it fully charged. It tracked my sleep but confusingly, not sure the time is right... Did a session on the elliptical, switched from bra to belt because couldn't really be sure it was reading steps right. The... Read more

A new toy.

Saturday, November 24, 2012      8 comments

I went out last night and we stayed out quite late. Consequently didn't want to go to Zumba this morning, so I skipped my usual exercise. But we went out to do errands and picked up a FitBit One! We can only just get them in New Zealand since th... Read more

Gardening after work

Thursday, November 22, 2012      1 comments

Where I live there is a lot of wind. But yesterday was a lovely warm still day, truly a joy to be outside. I couldn't bring myself to go to the pool after work. Instead I spent two hours in the garden. What a pleasure to tidy up the garden beds ... Read more

FitBit update

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      8 comments

A while ago I asked should I buy a FitBit. I gave DH the FitBit Zip because he seemed to need something to encourage him to exercise regularly. He loves it and now the first thing he does when he comes home is turn on his computer to see how he... Read more

RIP Froufrou Frizzle

Monday, November 19, 2012      12 comments

FrouFrou was an old fashioned country chick, although she lived most of her life in suburban Wellington. She was a modest kind of gal, and lived a quiet and moderate life: wheat for breakfast and assorted fruits and vegetables, a quiet morning i... Read more

Fitness rats and mice

Monday, November 19, 2012      4 comments

Arrgh, I forgot I have a blood test scheduled and now have to fast until 11 am, which should be OK but for the lack of tea . I'll take a banana along to have straight after the test or maybe will get the post Zumba shakes. It's my own fault f... Read more

Aqua trainer

Sunday, November 18, 2012      3 comments

I haven't been as focussed on my exercise lately and so I have decided to enlist some help to perk me up. One exercise menu item I am pretty good about is the aquacise in the warm pool. Because it is warm there are no excuses not to go, and I do... Read more

Telling myself off about my sleep challenge

Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

Theoretically my month sleep challenge will be over tomorrow but I have decided to keep going, because I have missed a few days of recording. Does anyone else struggle with accountability? Because thirty days is not the same as a month. I know ... Read more

A visit from my mojo

Sunday, November 04, 2012      3 comments

Feeling good today. Despite the fact that I only caught 6 hours sleep, so my sleep challenge isn't exactly a roaring success. Started the day with 35 minutes on the elliptical, followed by stretches, while I watched "The Killing" on TV repl... Read more

Undies to the rescue

Thursday, October 25, 2012      7 comments

I had a ratty day yesterday. I forgot my swipe card, so I had to do the walk of shame. The security guards teased me about the junk in my bag. (At least it wasn't the junk in my undies!) Then second stage security didn't realize I work there an... Read more

8 hours' sleep - it must be Friday!

Thursday, October 18, 2012      3 comments

This blog is to remind myself yet again about the joys of a great night's sleep. I went to bed at 10.30 and woke on my own at 6.35, a whole 8 hours almost to the dot. Which is weird, what if I thought 8 hours and 7 minutes was just the right am... Read more
