A busy day today, beginning with two hours of Zumba. I SO didn't want to get up but I made it in time and two hours later was pleased I did, I felt great! The extra zumba I did in my holiday has really paid off, I am noticeably fitter and have ... Read more

Always with the holidays

I am on holiday next week AGAIN? What is with all the holidays, you may ask. I have had trouble scheduling holidays for a few years so had a backlog to clear. Plus, over the last couple of years my holidays were not as restful and refreshing... Read more

I have worn this particular jacket. It has hung in the aspirational space in my closet door for the autumn to spring season for several years, but I have not worn it because it didn't meet in the middle. Now it buttons up. Also, it looks reall... Read more
Splashing about

Last night I switched my programme a bit, and instead of doing 13/4 hours of aquaerobics I subbed 15 minutes of breast stroke and backstroke. To be quite honest I found it a bore, in this short warm pool there are too many turns to get into the ... Read more

I weighed myself this morning and I am on the move again, after a few days of hanging around dragging my feet. Phew, I was doing it hard the last few days! Today was a great day. I went to Zumba and on the way up the steps coming home stopped... Read more

I think one reason I have been feeling a bit deprived is because I have been. 4-500 calories is not a lot, even for only a few weeks, and I haven't been supporting myself properly. So I haven,t cooked in as interesting a way as I could. This ... Read more

Sparkers, I am at a hard part. I am on a weight release phase of my eating plan and the rate of loss is slooower than I would like. I have my eye on an amount I want to lose before I consolidate my loss, but at this rate I have at least a week t... Read more

Not that I am having one at the moment, I am cruising down, but DH & I were talking this morning about my expectations about releasing weight quickly during this phase of the Cura, and the idea of establishing a new set point for your weight. ... Read more
The husband and Sparkpeople
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      28 comments

For a change this blog is not all about me. I keep coming back to a thread on the message boards, the husband and junk food: what a great topic. When I started Sparking I found the food my DH liked to bring into the house really hard to re... Read more

I just got in from Zumba, one of my classmates said such nice things about how much weight I have been losing. She said, even since Saturday your shape has changed! She is right, and how eagle eyed is she?!? And it made me realise that witho... Read more

Sparkies I have just got out of a well deserved shower and sit here with wet hair after my Saturday Zumba session. My dear Zumba teacher, Alison, runs classes right through the holidays, so we aren't stopping for Easter, no, no, no! I usua... Read more

Although I haven't completed six weeks of Consolidation, I have embarked on round 2 of Cura Romana. I kind of got my schedules mixed up and decided that I did want to make a good start on Round 2 while I am on holiday. That way if I feel any wea... Read more
