Muffled in fog

Friday, October 21, 2011      5 comments

We live on a hill and sometimes I wake to a world of grey. When a puff of air moves the fog, trees suddenly loom, then fade. From my bed I see this now. I'm feeling a bit blurred and obscured this morning myself. A good night's sleep has somewh... Read more

I've got the blues

Friday, October 21, 2011      7 comments

I don't know why, I don't feel so good today. I was very exhausted yesterday too. In a slump. Don't want to exercise or do anything, feel rather blue and blah. Will put myself to bed after watching the Welsh beat the Wallabies (I hope). After t... Read more

A stripped down holiday

Monday, October 17, 2011      3 comments

We are away for a week on an excursion to Auckland, our biggest city. It is the wedding of a friend's oldest boy. This will be our first holiday for a while, and now that I am losing weight I feel a bit anxious about at least maintaining tha... Read more

FUNday and a surprise

Sunday, October 16, 2011      5 comments

Zumba again today, I like it VERY much. So much that on Saturday I took a buddy who needed cheering up to a different class. She liked it, but ... Arrggh!!! She was better at picking up the steps than me!!! Read more

It's the weakend

Friday, October 14, 2011      5 comments

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...

Tuesday, October 11, 2011      4 comments

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

Tuesday Snoozeday

Tuesday, October 11, 2011      2 comments

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

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.) emoticonRead more

Weigh day

Saturday, October 08, 2011      5 comments

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

Friday, October 07, 2011      5 comments

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

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      6 comments

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!

Monday, October 03, 2011      7 comments

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!

Sunday, October 02, 2011      3 comments

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

Thursday, September 29, 2011      6 comments

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
