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
The Internet is forever...
There's been another fuss about Facebook's privacy settings and it set me to thinking about what information we put up on the Internet. I don't know why I hadn't quite twigged that posts on Sparkpeople are also searchable on google.
So I check... Read more
Felt pleasingly sore from the increase in exercise - I stepped it up quite a bit over the weekend so felt cool about having a quiet Tuesday.
Rested and relaxed and earned my Spark stripes by making a delicious healthy dinner with lots of ... Read more
Monday Funday: Zum Ba!!!
More later but gotta get sorted out & dash for my zumba class.
(Gee I'm enjoying this exercise thing, I don't know what's come over me.)
As you can see by my plan I am putting weightloss third in line after sleep and activity. And this seems to be paying off for me.
Buuut.... has anybody else noticed that when you overdo the eating two days in a row, it can stymie your weigh... Read more
Friday night in the middle ages
I had a version of this blog ready to go and lost it, gosh darn it! Anyway...
I woke very early this morning, even before the birds, after a wonderful sleep last night.
DH is away and when I got home from work I did chores and then, in... Read more
Last night I went for a swim after work, this is an exercise date I have made with DH that we have broken several times. This is two weeks in a row we have kept it and this blog is to remind me what a good thing it is and worth both our whiles t... Read more
Quarterly report to Frizzle HQ
I've been sparking four months now so here is another progress report. These can be a bit tedious but useful to measure the success of my strategies for improved health and fitness.
First, I had a hospital checkup yesterday and I can drop a... Read more
Zumba does Fifi!
Woke this morning feeling a little bit stiff after MY FIRST ZUMBA CLASS! I nearly didn't go, I thought it might be too challenging, I thought I might reinjure my knee, I KNEW I would look like a total fool. But thanks to the encouragement from S... Read more
It might not happen overnight ... But it WILL happen!
Some of us might recognise the title of this blog, it was an advertisement for a shampoo, I think. It seems an appropriate slogan for delayed gratification.
I completed the sleep challenge a few weeks ago and it was a mixed bag. I didn't lik... Read more
The birds and the bees
Despite my complaints about daylight saving, here I am sitting outside at the table after work as the sun starts to go behind the hill, enjoying the sunlight and the spicy scents of spring (aka hay fever to some poor folk). I am watering the gar... Read more
My theory of abundance
Another Sparkie's post inspired these philosphical musings rather early in the morning. This is a great site, I am exploring it still. It is genius to provide it and make it free, I would never have used it if I had had to pay because then I wo... Read more
Fifi does Zumba
I was planning to start a Zumba Gold class this week, with some trepidation as I have two left feet, and also many years ago a physio told me I was standing behind the door when God handed out knees.
Relaxed family time.
What a pleasant weekend I have had. My nephew, who I haven't seen for a few years, visited, and we had a really nice laid back time. The weather wasn't at its very best, but we did indoor things and ate out a few times, had some good conversatio... Read more
A funny thing happened last night. We went out for dinner, a reasonably rare event, and it was nice to get dressed up and go somewhere special. At dinner we went through the menu, including dessert. The food was delicious, the company was pleasa... Read more
