Ugh! Yuck! Glad it's done.

I finally got to tick off a chore that was on my list for a long time: cleaning behind the fridge. I figured since I'm going to the dentist anyway I might as well totally ruin my day. Read more

Ahhh - Summer!

After a disgusting wet and cold spring it seems we're finally in for a stretch of nice weather. Of course it gets too hot right away but at least we're into average seasonal temperatures. Saw the first local strawberries at the market toda... Read more

A Good Day

Saturday, June 05, 2010      3 comments

A couple of weeks ago I went clothes shopping and bough a pair of pants in size 14. Today I decided since this is now the only pair I own that doesn't require suspenders I better get a couple more. I thought optimistically I'll try size 12, sinc... Read more

17% smaller!

This has been a strange week. Between uproar at work and getting sick with a tummy bug I ended up losing 2 lbs, so the little fish on my ticker swam past the first 25% mark. Added to the weight I lost before joining SP, I've lost over 1/6th or 1... Read more

Welcome Weekend!

Saturday, May 22, 2010      0 comments

TGIF - and a lovely long weekend. Work has been very unpleasant this week, with our employer throwing us curve balls right left and center, so I'm happy I don't have to think about it for three days. Had a great karate class tonight. Now I'... Read more

OMG, another killer yoga class. I think next time I'll go for the root canal instead. At least they give you freezing! It's good for me... It's good for me... It's good for me...... Read more

Another week, and I am still stuck on a plateau. Oh well; not the first time and I know I will get over it eventually. My clothes are still getting looser and I have been able to increase my workout weights so I am happy with the progress. ... Read more

Well blow me down and shiver me timbers. My son and his gf came by today - they were supposed to come for kaffeeklatsch except her family monopolized them for Mother's Day but they still wanted to pop in. It's her birthday tomorrow and she was s... Read more

Pleasantly surprised

Last week one of the managers at work noticed how big my clothes were getting. That was dumb of me; I hadn't been feeling well and after throwing my clothes into the washing machine the night before I had tootled off to bed. Next morning I forgo... Read more

Hard work but satisfying

Last year my mother-in-law gave me some raspberry canes for my birthday. I planted them beside our fence and they've been struggling bravely ever since. This year the poor things were totally overrun with weeds but still poking up above them. I'... Read more

A Real Treat

Tonight we had a visitor, a martial artist with 30 years plus of training in a variety of styles. He happened to be in town and wanted to participate in the class. My sensei was out of town but he had told me to expect this man who had been HIS ... Read more

Interesting Class

Wednesday, April 28, 2010      0 comments

So last night was my chance to teach our 5 new white belts - their third karate class ever. In a way it was great as they're all eager to learn, but also stressful as they're a bit hyper and want to do everything at once. All in all though it wa... Read more

Beautiful Sunday

Southwestern BC is a lovely piece of earth but it does rain a lot. Well, duh, this IS a rainforest, even if we can't always see much forest. It was supposed to rain all weekend AND all week which is pretty depressing. On Friday I had to walk to ... Read more

Take this, weeds!

After 14 years of fighting the weeds around our house I've finally got the perfect tool. I got it at Lee Valley and it's called a crack weeder. It took me two hours today to clean the curb; in previous years it took me at least two 4h sessions a... Read more

Dental Surgery Today

Wednesday, April 07, 2010      0 comments

Well, I'm glad that is over. My second dental surgery within two months. From the last time I know there will be NO exercise today but by the same token, also not a lot of food. And two glorious days off work. I've dropped by the grocery store o... Read more
