As young as you feel?
I'm on week 2 of the Know your numbers plan. This is a quick questionnaire to check the age of your heart. Not saying what my heart age is, except that, they say you are as young as you feel, but this plan says I am older than I feel. So I have... Read more
The weather has confounded the forecasters and been balmy and still for Easter so far. We have been tidying up the garden and it is such a pleasure. The wax eyes are gorging on the cabbage tree seeds, the fantails are beeping to dislodge the ins... Read more
Shaking my tail feathers
I finally rejoined my Tuesday Zumba class and boy am I glad I did! They have moved on to some new routines,so I have quite a bit of catching up to do. But the main thing is, the SWEAT! When I swim I have no real idea about the level of exertion,... Read more
New feathers and a new month
The new month has given me some impetus to plan to tackle some projects. Last month I refreshed my wardrobe and now I have plenty of clothes that fit. I feel rather special as I pull out the new items and introduce myself to the world in them, a... Read more

Back to better I hope
Swam Sunday, Zumba yesterday, Aqua aerobics today, fingers crossed I'll be back to normal by next week. I'm starting back cautiously as I don't want the interuption to my exercise to go on any longer than it needs to.... Read more
Flying the microfibre flag
I've been getting the Flylady emails and they are really helping me get on track. I'm enjoying housework these days and spent a happy morning yesterday cleaning house. Here is the result, as you can see I am a microfibre chick.
Fluffing around with portion sizes
I've been reading the SP stuff about portion sizes but I can't really picture volume in my head. I meant to get some things from the $2 store, a deck of cards, a ping pong ball, that kind of thing to put on the table at mealtime to help me reall... Read more
I finally took my pulled muscle to the doctor after I had a relapse with it. Now have a prescription for anti inflammatories which have started doing their work. The pain has worn me out so I am resting up a little this morning and think I will... Read more
Great day in the garden today
The weather has been changeable lately, autumn seems like winter already. But today was a perfect warm sunny day. DH and I spent it in the garden. We concentrated on one terrace and cleaned it up completely and put away all our sweepings. Usuall... Read more
Anyone else finding the women in their underwear a bit much?
I have noticed that there is a rather sticky ad on my spark page at the moment, it is Patricia who has lost I don't know how many kilos, and is posing poutingly in her bra in her after shot. I'll be pleased to lose that amount of weight too, bu... Read more
It's my Sparkaversary
9 months since I started Sparking. Since I began I have:
lost fat and gained muscles
improved my sleep patterns
Improved my mood
Found exercise I enjoy
Become more flexible both physically and mentally
With a back injury. I hurt myself carrying a load of books down to the Salvation Army, slipped and twisted my back and now I am getting spasms in my back, like a very very very bad stitch. Ooh it hurts, every now and then my muscles just cramp ... Read more
I went to Zumba this morning, with some trepidation after pulling a muscle yesterday, (on the way to zumba not actually doing zumba, that would be too shaming) but all was well. Then spent the rest of the morning in the garden, planting bulbs an... Read more
Another fine day in paradise
Another fine day, garden awaits, but first, Zumba!
DH returned from visiting MiL who is now being assessed in hospital, quite a relief as she had been so unwell. Our big worry was a brain tumor but her CT scan has come back clear, so that is ... Read more
