Flying through the housework

Monday, May 14, 2012      2 comments

I've been using the flylady baby steps method because it amuses me, and anything that makes housework fun is just fine with me. Today was my Flylady home blessing day. I got dressed to my lace up shoes. Read more

Not my best week ever...

Friday, May 11, 2012      6 comments

It's been a busy week and I haven't kept up with my usual exercise. I am feeling it! I've been a bit achy painy and not sleeping as well as I should. Next week I will not be as busy and I will make sure my exercise doesn't slip. I need to plan ... Read more

After a wonderful night,s sleep I feel restored. I need new workout shoes but the ones I have are good for two more sessions of Zumba. Shoe shop trip is on the agenda for Saturday. My 11 month Sparkaversary today. So I am starting to reflect... Read more

Lies, damn lies, & statistics!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012      10 comments

Yes, I will be doing my menu plan but first, some musings on weight. I think some Sparkers will understand how I am feeling at the moment. I don't quite know what to think about my weight loss since I started Sparking and tracking my weight.... Read more

Menu moans and a plea for inspiration

Saturday, April 28, 2012      13 comments

I have been putting off the work I need to do on menu planning. I know it will be a great aid to me to pre plan my menus, and it will save me money, and I'll be glad when I have, and all that. It's just... I'm reluctant to buckle down to it. I'm... Read more

A new number

Thursday, April 26, 2012      4 comments

After quite a lot of mucking about, followed by some concerted effort, I seem to have reached a new number on my scale. And this isn't the kind of number that changes depending where in the bathroom I place the scale. Still a long way to go, but... Read more

Holey moley: sunscreen

Monday, April 23, 2012      6 comments

Yesterday included my first ever mole map. Perhaps it is only something we have in the antipodes. It involves having photos taken of your body and a map being made on a (much better looking, in my case) model. Then the mapper examines all your m... Read more

A beautiful day today. Walked around Oriental Bay then went to the farmers market for some gorgeous vegetables. Had a picnic lunch then home to tidy up the vege garden. A big pile of weeds for the chickens to investigate tomorrow. One more sessi... Read more

Taking the rest of the month off

Thursday, April 19, 2012      5 comments

I've been quite tired and not really enjoying work so much so I have decided to take the rest of the month off. It was a spur of the moment thing, because we have ANZAC day next week and I can take just a few leave days and get quite a good brea... Read more

All gardened out

Sunday, April 15, 2012      4 comments

There is always more to be done but for the first time for a year I think I can say the garden is in order. Hedge trimming guys are coming in the next week or so, and I have a little bit of easy trimming to do. But mostly, all I need to do is pu... Read more

Swimmers' fatigue

Thursday, April 12, 2012      7 comments

If you are a swimmer, you'll know what I mean when I say I'm not referring to that pleasant post swim lassitude. No, I'm referring to what happens to your togs when they decide to give up the ghost. And what I want to know is, one, do they HAVE ... Read more

As young as you feel?

Sunday, April 08, 2012      7 comments

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

Easter bliss

Saturday, April 07, 2012      4 comments

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
