A new toy.

I went out last night and we stayed out quite late. Consequently didn't want to go to Zumba this morning, so I skipped my usual exercise. But we went out to do errands and picked up a FitBit One! We can only just get them in New Zealand since th... Read more
Gardening after work
Thursday, November 22, 2012      1 comments

Where I live there is a lot of wind. But yesterday was a lovely warm still day, truly a joy to be outside. I couldn't bring myself to go to the pool after work. Instead I spent two hours in the garden. What a pleasure to tidy up the garden beds ... Read more
FitBit update
Tuesday, November 20, 2012      8 comments

A while ago I asked should I buy a FitBit. I gave DH the FitBit Zip because he seemed to need something to encourage him to exercise regularly. He loves it and now the first thing he does when he comes home is turn on his computer to see how he... Read more
RIP Froufrou Frizzle

FrouFrou was an old fashioned country chick, although she lived most of her life in suburban Wellington. She was a modest kind of gal, and lived a quiet and moderate life: wheat for breakfast and assorted fruits and vegetables, a quiet morning i... Read more

Arrgh, I forgot I have a blood test scheduled and now have to fast until 11 am, which should be OK but for the lack of tea . I'll take a banana along to have straight after the test or maybe will get the post Zumba shakes. It's my own fault f... Read more
Aqua trainer

I haven't been as focussed on my exercise lately and so I have decided to enlist some help to perk me up. One exercise menu item I am pretty good about is the aquacise in the warm pool. Because it is warm there are no excuses not to go, and I do... Read more
Telling myself off about my sleep challenge
Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

Theoretically my month sleep challenge will be over tomorrow but I have decided to keep going, because I have missed a few days of recording. Does anyone else struggle with accountability? Because thirty days is not the same as a month. I know ... Read more
A visit from my mojo
Sunday, November 04, 2012      3 comments

Feeling good today. Despite the fact that I only caught 6 hours sleep, so my sleep challenge isn't exactly a roaring success. Started the day with 35 minutes on the elliptical, followed by stretches, while I watched "The Killing" on TV repl... Read more
Undies to the rescue
Thursday, October 25, 2012      7 comments

I had a ratty day yesterday. I forgot my swipe card, so I had to do the walk of shame. The security guards teased me about the junk in my bag. (At least it wasn't the junk in my undies!) Then second stage security didn't realize I work there an... Read more
8 hours' sleep - it must be Friday!
Thursday, October 18, 2012      3 comments

This blog is to remind myself yet again about the joys of a great night's sleep. I went to bed at 10.30 and woke on my own at 6.35, a whole 8 hours almost to the dot. Which is weird, what if I thought 8 hours and 7 minutes was just the right am... Read more
Shall I buy a FitBit? Advice wanted from Sparkies who have used a FITBIT.

Another lovely day. I've done my morning exercise and errands, hung out the washing (yay, retiring the dryer for summer) and had a shower, and am about to go into the garden. One of my errands was that I picked up a Fitbit Zip. We got it f... Read more
TMI about sleep
Friday, October 12, 2012      4 comments

I didn't blog it yesterday but I woke yesterday morning feeling great. I felt some pleasant aches from doing some exercises I was unaccustomed to, but DH & I both commented on how well rested we felt and that is because we got 8 hours' sleep. ... Read more

What a great night's sleep I had last night. I've had a cold and it hasn't been so easy to sleep through, what with waking up coughing, so I guess that is why I am noticing how good I feel after a straight 7.5 hours. I think that getting a... Read more

Back from Queenstown
Friday, September 28, 2012      4 comments

The 30 Days of blogging has been great, but has displaced other blogs i might have written. And I've been having fun! We went to Queenstown, which is an alpine resort town in the central South Island. It is surrounded by amazing mountains, ca... Read more
