Putting on my big girl's pants
Monday, May 13, 2013      8 comments

Not really, in fact I have just thrown out a whole lot of big girl's pants that are too big for me now. Sparkies, I'm not even sure if I should be blogging this here... I preordered the Spark Solution, and thought that by the time it arrived... Read more
Pounding the pavement
Friday, May 10, 2013      8 comments

Last night I was recording my exercise and it suddenly hit me, I walked a couple of Ks, very fast, on pavement, and no injury. I had an appointment for a mole map, do you get them? I am a fair skinned chick, so I have one every year now. So ... Read more
Just add water and shrink
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      5 comments

Last night I worked out quite hard in the water. Usually I do a two hour mix of aquaerobics, we'll call it aquajogging but really it is a bit more challenging than that, quite a lot of resistance work with noodles and foam weights, and a good tw... Read more
Extra weight released, phew

After a busy weekend including a steak day, I have dropped two kilos. Yippee! I'd been a bit worried about one of those kilos, it looked to be sticking , but it is gone now and I can get on with experimenting with different foods to see if ... Read more

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

Today I begin consolidation in my second round of the Cura Romana. Consolidation is the most important part of the Cura, and weeks 1 and 4 are the most important weeks. I can now add a greater variety of foods to my diet, and after 31 days of ve... Read more
Always with the holidays
Saturday, April 20, 2013      7 comments

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 just got home from my second session of back to back Zumba classes, two hours of Zumba. If you think one hour of Zumba is fun, try two hours! ... Read more
For the first time in fifteen years

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
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      2 comments

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
Garlic and ginger
Sunday, April 14, 2013      4 comments

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

Friday, April 12, 2013      10 comments

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

I've gottem. I shouldn't, though. Looking for something to cheer me up and I just realised I have lost 50lbs! That is, half of this: I ought to be over the moo... Read more
Love your plateaus
Thursday, April 04, 2013      4 comments

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
