Summer is nearly over
...but the weather is gorgeous.
I spent the afternoon in the garden spreading compost on my newly excavated flower beds and transplanting irises onto the stony banks under the trees. It was sunny all day, too hot to work in the sun but I was i... Read more
Day 45 of the Cura and day 1 of week 1 of the six week consolidation period.
Just weighed myself.
On the weightloss phase I have released 18.2 kg, which is 40 lb. So its a lost 40lb badge for me! My daily average loss was: .4 kg per day or ... Read more
Today I pick up a tailor made set of swimming earplugs from the audiologist. This is a reward for embedding water exercise into my exercise regime. I love water exercise but have been troubled by ear infections in the past, so these should kee... Read more

A snake in the garden
Metaphorical of course, we don't have snakes here. But there I was, on my holiday gardenathon, helping DH take the green waste to the dump. Getting back into the car, closing the door, when the guy next to us drove off in his car towing a traile... Read more
Yada yada more perfection planned
Lots of plants to get in the ground and still a little more weeding to do to have the garden shipshape. Yesterday we got out the chainsaw, always a risk as I tend to think, hmm, what else can go? We took out some opportunistic karakas, which se... Read more
More sun, more gardening, more chickens, another swim. No Zumba though. Housework instead, far less fun. Funnily enough I am having the most relaxing staycation...... Read more
A perfect day
Bless my Zumba instructor, she runs classes regardless of the holidays, except Xmas. So I started the day with a fun Zumba session, even though it is Waitangi Day, which is our national holiday. Came home all powered up to do some cleaning, show... Read more

My image is improving
Since January 8 2013 I have lost 28 lb. The last time I weighed this much was on 2 September 2008, 54 months ago almost to the day. Since then I have lost and gained, but mostly gained. So I am weighing the least I weighed in years.

A few days to go before my weighing week is over and I find myself considering whether to stop the detox/weightloss phase of the Cura Romana because my weightloss has slowed. For example so far this week I have lost just over a kilogram instead... Read more
I am starting a 10 day holiday now, the weather is fine and should continue fair. It will be a staycation, I have plans for a few little things around the house and garden, and aim to get more water exercise in as well.
Fel really excited abo... Read more

More lovely summer & a Cura update
Another beautiful day and rather than spend time sparking I got up and at 'em. Went for a swim this morning in our community's new hydrotherapy pool, it is so fresh and wonderfully sparkly and warm and deeper than the other pool, I think I will ... Read more
