Meditation on the occasion of my new goggles
I have been using a very warm pool at the complex down the road from our place: it is so warm it is like swimming in the bath. Using this pool has meant that I can never tell myself I don't feel like a swim because it will be too cold, it is nev... Read more
Weigh day again
Yesterday was a lovely day, ideal for gardening but I spent it very quietly after a big night out on Friday night. We got home after two, which is quite a stretch for us these days. It was a fun night, and I don't regret it, but my gardening pla... Read more
Tracking food & ideas for menus

It is true I did Zumba off that 300 grams, how amazing, and cheap learning for me that holidays can be fatal for weight loss. A week is easy to recover from, but we have a three week trip coming up, so will definitely put more strategies in pla... Read more
