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

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

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

I have done my calories for the first time in a while. Not as accurate as before but at least I have entered them. I am not living at my flat in Edinburgh so I don't have access to my scales but I will see if I can use my Mum's. I have kept up m... Read more

I'm dealing with some major upheaval in my personal life right now so I haven't felt much like blogging and may not do so much over the next few weeks. That said, although I have sometimes reached for the chocolate I have tried very hard to stay... Read more

Big dinner, small steps

Sunday, January 18, 2015      8 comments

We had guests for dinner last night so for one night I broke my avoiding dairy plans. My husband had made a delicious orange mousse in a brandy snap basket - they were so beautiful it would have been a shame not to appreciate his efforts. I also... Read more

Avoiding lots of dairy is going well. Apart from occasionally forgetting about milk in things like tea and either having to pour a cup down the sink or returning the milk to the carton if caught in time! My illness is much better (thanks to all ... Read more

New Year's Day

I am starting afresh from today. I have re-set all my sparkgoals to help me shed the post-Christmas weight and have decided to cut down on the dairy fats I consume. As an asthmatic, I often find that things like cheese can make my condition wors... Read more

What happens when you write a blog that gets a 'Popular blog post' award? Firstly, you get lots of lovely comments from other Sparkers. Secondly, you (or I really) feel a bit embarrassed and self conscious - as if you went looking for people to ... Read more

I haven't been on SparkPeople for a while. I let things slide and have gone back to my heaviest weight for a long time. However, I'm back and ready to shift the weight once more and this time I have had a good think about why I gave up before. ... Read more
