Getting Ready for my Fit by 50 Year
Tuesday, September 13, 2016      1 comments

Over the last 2 years I've undone all the good work and progress I'd made on SP. I'm starting again. It feels so depressing to say something like: 'I'm back on the wagon', or 'Restart #283', or 'I ate my way back from ... Read more
How normal people eat

I've spent the last week on a training course, staying in a hotel, and eating out 3 meals a day. I was sharing my room with a dear friend who is very healthy, looking good. It was SUCH an interesting experience. Some things I learned about ma... Read more
Firm Prior Resolve - THIS!
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      8 comments

John Piper's facebook status this morning: "My experience is that the absence of firm prior resolve results in regular rationalization. Like when to go to bed, etc." How true is this?? I can say until I'm blue in the face: ... Read more
The Burning 'Yes' Inside
Monday, January 14, 2013      9 comments

I've been thinking the last couple of days about my motivation - how random it is. Some days I am so completely motivated and you couldn't pay me to eat anything not on plan. Other days? Don't get between me and the chocolate ... and can I ea... Read more

The first week is always easy, hey. Motivation's high, novelty's strong. It's week 2 that matters, though. Can I make it a streak: Two weeks weight loss in a row? Two weeks consistency with exercise? Eating well? Yes I can! I want to be ... Read more
The Food Plan...
Thursday, December 27, 2012      4 comments

I've checked out my old food tracker, and reminded myself of how I used to eat. I'm back to it as of today. Low-carb, high(er) protein and lots of veg. Breakfast: cereal or eggs. Lunch: Some sort of meat/bean/lentil and vegetable m... Read more

I've spent the last couple of days re-reading my old blogs (seeing as it's been over a year since I wrote one and lots has happened since then) and surfing sparkpeople success stories and blogs to re-spark my old enthusiasm. I was motivated and... Read more

For the last six weeks we have been travelling and visiting people, enjoying being back in Australia. We've stayed in many different homes experiencing beautiful hospitality and wonderful reunions. It's been great, truly great ... but I feel a... Read more
Goals for August
Monday, August 01, 2011      8 comments

August is going to be a challenging month. We leave on the 31st for 7 months in Australia (I can hear the Hallelujah Chorus in the background!). There's a mountain to be done before we leave, though. Also, we found out on Saturday that our la... Read more
What is sweet?

I've been no-sugar for 6 days, or so I thought. I didn't realise, but the 'healthy' yogurt I've been eating has sugar in it. Duh. My excuse is that it doesn't have English or Albanian on the carton, although if I'd thought about it I would ha... Read more
Progress ... and an unrelated perfume rant.
Saturday, July 30, 2011      7 comments

I've completed 5 days no sugar - faced some major temptations and resisted them. I cannot believe, frankly, how easy it has been this week. Why is it easy (-ier) this time? Last time I gave up chocolate (and let's face it, that's my main suga... Read more

Monday, July 25, 2011      7 comments

I came to a point a couple of months ago that my real life was suffering by how much time I was spending on the computer. I cut completely. It was the right thing to do, and I have no regrets. Funny how now it's right to come ... Read more
Picking up the Spark Threads ...and pics of the last two weeks!
Thursday, May 12, 2011      10 comments

After two weeks away (where I thought I'd use the internet, but in reality found I was preferring real life to even bother reading emails) I'm now trying to pick up the pieces of my spark program. Program? What program?? I think I need to sta... Read more

Thanks sp friends for your amazing support after my last blog. I'm so grateful. We're flying to Croatia tonight for our organisation's conference. We're all really excited, although I'm a bit overwhelmed by the logistics of getting us the... Read more
