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
I was looking at my spark page and I realized, I have reached a goal. I am enjoying moving again. My body feels looser and happier and I am more mobile and free in some of my movements. Not all, for example it's still a bit uncomfortable to get ... Read more
My literal subconscious.
Not only did I wake up in time for work, I got seven hours' sleep almost to the dot! At 10:48:05 pm I told myself I would sleep for seven hours, and at 5:47:54, I woke up, innocent of any alarms or clocks. How is that for precision?... Read more
Swim, a spa and a massage, can't beat that
We are having wellness week at work with fitness classes and health checks and the like. I treated myself to a 10 min massage for $5. Good deal, huh? Every minute of that massage there was a knot in my back! Felt so much better afterwards. Then ... Read more
What a great day I had, woke after a good night's sleep, had a pleasant day at work, home on the bus where I sat next to a neighbor I haven't caught up with for a while. Everything is peachy today.... Read more
Despite a certain reluctance i did get out of bed today and did a heap of housework and a lonely workout on my elliptical trainer. What virtue is mine!
Out the window all day has been a classic kiwi sound, a chainsaw. We are a pioneering co... Read more
Enjoying my swimming
It's cool today with some rain, everywhere the tui are singing & fossicking in the trees. Here is a picture of a tui on a flax flower stem:
And if you'd like to hear what... Read more
