Reclaiming my goals

Saturday, September 12, 2015      4 comments

I've been off the radar for a bit, but I'm back. I've been busy meeting someone amazing and this rather knocked everything else out of my thoughts. We've been going out for 2 weeks but both agree it feels like so much longer. He's told his Mum a... Read more

Feeling Happy

Friday, August 14, 2015      6 comments

My SparkPeople journey has been through a lot with me over the last year. Now, I'm very happy to say that I am in a much more secure place emotionally and have even begun to date a lovely man, who's patience and kindness have just been amazing. ... Read more

Snap out of it, silly!

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      8 comments

I'm sure many of you have had a 'light-bulb' moment during your Spark-People journey. Well I just had one, right here sat at my kitchen table drinking my morning cup of tea: Having broken up with my husband earlier this year has dented my c... Read more

Not blogged in a while and so not sure where to start. This means the following will probably be a stream of consciousness, but that's ok. Had a run of 10 days on SP, but this got broken by a trip to London for my cousin's 40th. Now I'm bac... Read more

Seeking balance

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      6 comments

I'm back here, which is a positive step. I have re-gained weight, however, I plan to start tracking and exercising again so I will not dwell on the negative. I stalled my 'danger snack' avoidance at 41 days - just shy of 42, which would have bee... Read more

1000 miles

Tuesday, June 23, 2015      7 comments

In my life I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment - there are just so many things to sort out! I'm in the process of re-mortgaging my flat so I can buy out my ex-husband. This also involves solicitor letters and legal documents - bleugh! At... Read more

Made it to 35 days without eating my danger snacks. So far there have been the odd day I can't count as part of this but not many - about 5 or 6. I have turned down several cakes and biscuits at work and not had any chocolate or cheese as snacks... Read more

Accountability and Other things

Monday, June 08, 2015      8 comments

I haven't blogged for a while but then I have been pretty busy and also away from home. I was asked to do marking of senior art work this year and so spent 3 days in a B&B in Dalkeith. The marking was fun and I learned loads from doing it that w... Read more

Accountability Day 9

Thursday, May 14, 2015      7 comments

Thought a more thorough check-in was due. After 9 days I have managed a total of 8 avoiding the snacks I have identified as my weaknesses. I decided not to count the day where I had a bit of cake at my friend's because although it was out of pol... Read more

Accountability - Day 2 (and a request for opinion)

Thursday, May 07, 2015      8 comments

So today I have a wee conundrum for anyone who would like to help. I'd arranged to visit a colleague with some of my other ones as she's recently had a new baby and we needed a good catch up. I knew she would probably offer us cake or biscuits s... Read more

Accountabilty - day 1

Wednesday, May 06, 2015      9 comments

I did it! No snacks today apart from some healthy almonds. No chocolate, no cake, no cheese, no biscuits! Ok, let's see if I can do it tomorrow too. Thanks for all the helpful advice I got on my last blog. The only difficulty in not having ... Read more

Making myself accountable

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      7 comments

Ok, I've got myself into a self-destructive cycle and I need to break out of it. I have put weight on again, which makes me feel bad about myself and so I comfort eat and put more weight on, etc... I need to take control of my eating. I nee... Read more

Here's to a happier tomorrow!

Thursday, March 19, 2015      8 comments

I'm currently off work for the second day running. Its a nasty fluey/cold bug that I feel like I've had about 4 times now. Hopefully I'll be back at work tomorrow. I can't help but think that all the emotional turmoil I've been through lately ha... Read more

Been snacking a bit on chocolate and cake this week, but only a bit and I've got PMS so sue me. Still managing to stay in my calorie range most days thanks to taking turns to do lunch with my colleague who is also trying to eat healthily. We usu... Read more

Feeling more positive

Thursday, February 26, 2015      4 comments

So its been about 2 and a half weeks since I made the big, life-changing decision to end my marriage. I have recently been giving myself daily pep talks (in written form) to get all my fears and thoughts out and try to come up with positive ways... Read more
