It's all in the spin
The last two days I have won 20 & 25 log in points and I've really enjoyed a short break from my SP 'work', which is reading articles, blog posts etc to get to the bonus spin. I've been doing that pretty consistently, actually every day for mont... Read more
Return of the gym bunny
Today is the first day of summer and it has been warm and sunny with a mild breeze. I am enjoying the garden at the moment, before it all dries up. It's a big week and I'll be glad when tomorrow is over. We are kind of winding down at work for o... Read more
Suggestions for exercises for strength & flexibility?
Ooooh my hips are feeling something I did yesterday. But I am otherwise feeling extremely good this morning. I am headed for the garden soon but wanted to post, for my future edification, about the improvement in my comfort and freedom of movem... Read more
Just got in from a swim followed by Zumba. Felt I had been dragging the chain a bit this week and wanted to make up for my slackness. Now feel nicely tired, and ready for the rest of the day.
How good am I, after a dinner party last night!?... Read more
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
Starting to make use of the SP nutrition tracker a bit more than before. I've been tracking lots of days, but not really planning my meals as I should. I figure if I get a little routine goinging it will make it easier to fit in more stuff in t... Read more
Awake early and I plan to go back to sleep but sparking for 25 points as is my habit since I joined Sparkpeople. Anyway I found the low gravity spot in my bathroom and weighed myself

I had a good night last night and enjoyed watching all the talented young things in their cool clothes. No photos of the show, sorry, but here is one of the star of my garden at the moment, introducing...

Noticings and mind control
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
I took my own advice and followed our garden walks with a swim, steam and sauna. Now I can't get out of bed!! We decided to stay on another night and were upgraded to a penthouse suite, it is divinely comfortable and I don't want to leave. We th... Read more
Teetering: I I me me want want want. (Self obsessed blog.)
I've been looking around other people's Spark pages to see how they are approaching and maintaining their journey to good health. I noticed that Sparkers whose fitness minutes are closest to their Sparkpoint totals seem to do very well with weig... Read more
Great sport, shame about the sportsmanship
It has been inspiring watching the Rugby World Cup and I hope the celebrations continue for a little while.
So many bad things are happening here, with the devastating Christchurch earthquake, the economic downturn, and recently the grounding ... Read more
It's the weakend
Riffing on my weigh day theme, I am rethinking my weekend. I realize that I have structure in my week but somehow I am still thinking of my weekend as time out, time to relax, give myself a break, and party a little.
And it's when I tend to i... Read more
