I have been here for eternity, it seems. I know it all and still things do not work out. Now I am ready to get going again. I cannot wait for people to help me start. It is my life and what I make of it is my own choice. If you can help ... Read more

I ended up having almost a whole week of holiday away from home at the sea side. The weather was wonderful; the sea the right temperature; the nights refreshing. DH had some work to do and was away two days, but the rest of the time we spent tog... Read more

I have noticed that I feel better after a work-out on a warm day. But this year and with days - make it weeks - on end of 100s outside and close to 90 in the house I have discovered something amazing: It just happened that one day I stepped on t... Read more

Wow! My last two weeks in June and my first week in July were a disaster. Ok. Let's not dwell on this because there is work to do. Read this article today that you can't really be successful unless your routine ie. diet is not one that ... Read more
Welcome Summer!
Friday, May 31, 2013      6 comments

I just can't tell you how much I love summer. For some reason, summer is so much easier for me. May be, that's because living is easy and students are far, far away - don't take me wrong. I love students but the two semesters have been too much ... Read more

So yesterday I resigned from one of my jobs - starting unfortunately only on July 1 but still, the relief was instant in my mind. I have no idea how we'll make up for the lost money, but I hope for the best. April has not been too good - to... Read more
So it's April
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      3 comments

March was not very successful - except I did my work-out for most of the month (the last week excluded for obvious reasons). No loss there. I need to get serious about food, I think. There are several things that work against it: I work to mu... Read more

The other day I happened upon a SP article which suggested ways to change for the better and it caught my attention. (I'm sorry I can't find the link, but will do my best to reproduce the main thoughts - 4 steps to be exact). I am willing ... Read more
February is my month for change

In Feb of 2008 I have started Sparkpeople. I have had some great success in the beginning which was partially in pounds (-20!) but has been great in feeling, flexibility and endurance and general wellbeing! Well, the past three years have n... Read more
Can you advise me on SLOW?
Thursday, January 03, 2013      6 comments

Apparently, you can't lose weight over night but have to take it slow and easy. Small steps, they say! Well, I can't see how that can work for me. I have to be fully focused to do it. It feels like I'm at war with the thousands of enemies t... Read more
A happy new year!

I was highly tempted to get into the new year sleeping. It was a disappointing evening altogether with everyone just doing their own thing and a lot of TV watching - so not my sort of idea of fun for the new year. I started the holidays ... Read more

I have decided not to wait for the new year to re-start my program. Right now, I am making it easy: I will be collecting spark points because by collecting those, I will be more focused with my program. Today was ok. I have done 1 mile on t... Read more
Starting over

Yes, there is no time to wait till after Christmas to start with it. Something needs to be done and needs to be done fast. The two year period of a lot of work and a lot of stress is taking its toll and I am starting to feel to bad to go on like... Read more
