Where did February go?
Wow, just a few days of the month left. I have not been tracking regularly but I've kept up with losing about 1lb per week on average. I've been very busy at work - a big opportunity on a new project, which I am determined to succeed at! Keeping... Read more
Well, I have to admit it.... yes, I am "naughty" about weighing myself. I weigh myself every morning before I get in the shower, I figure that way there's no cheating on what I am wearing, the time of day, or whatever. I don't worry about the da... Read more
I hate being sick!
Got back from ski-ing on Saturday and started feeling weird.... Sunday woke up with a sore throat.... Monday started to sneeze.... Tuesday full blown head cold! I hate having a cold. It makes me eat and drink to soothe my throat so I am trying t... Read more
I feel fantastic!
Amazing what a Spa treat can do for you!
We skied for two days and today is a rest day (our middle aged knees don't like skiing 4 or 5 days in a row any more) so this morning I went to the Spa. I swam for about 40 minutes - the water in the... Read more
Going West to the mountains
Well, here we are in Beaver Creek, CO, for our annual ski vacation. I am not counting calories this week... with 3 hours of ski-ing adding up to 1400 calories consumed, I need the fuel. And I am having no trouble drinking more than 8 glasses of ... Read more
Looking forward to ski-ing!
I've been checking out the ski resort's web site today and there is plenty of snow in the forecast! I have been working out regularly, so it should not be too big a shock to the body. I even went to yoga on Monday evening. It was a holiday, so I... Read more
I went out with a group of my girl friends last night to see South Pacific at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. It was a great performance, and brought back many memories - South Pacific was one of my grandmother's favourites. She had the so... Read more
email used to rule my life [at work] but I am CHANGING THE RULES.
I had got to the point of having 1200 emails in my inbox. So I was relying opn my memory to know what needed to be done.
Yesterday I cleaned out (filed or deleted) every... Read more
Sunrise Breakfast Porridge
I made the Sunrise Grains porridge today as planned. Easy and tasty. As these are whole grains, it takes longer to cook than regular porridge or oatmeal. The grain mix includes wheat bulgur, buckwheat groats, red rice, quinoa flakes and brown fl... Read more
To do lists....
OK, I admit it, I am the world's BEST procrastinator. So I've decided that I need to do something to get organised. Today I started a To do List for the whole year... today I focused on work, adding all the things I need to accomplish. Tomorrow ... Read more
Went to a real expert running shoe store tonight and got fitted for shoes. They have you walk or run on the treadmill and watch your gait on the video screen to see how your feet roll when you step, then advise the best shoes for you. The shoes ... Read more
New week, new goals
Last week I didn't manage to work out every day because I pulled something in my back, so I rested Wednesday, and missed Friday because I was travelling, but did walk about 3 miles (well, maybe not quite that much!) in the airport.
Went to ... Read more
The best laid plans...
...were left on the kitchen counter this morning!
When I arrived at work I realised that I left my lunch bag at home. So onto plan B... It gave me an excuse to try out the new SweetGreen salad store that recently opened across the street fr... Read more
Had a good day at work today... followed by workout at the gym. Really need to get new shoes--the ones I have now don't have good arch support and I started getting pains in my feet on the treadmill [I have plantar fasciitis - can be very painfu... Read more
Back to Work Temptation
First day back after Christmas, and guess what was sitting on my chair? A gift basket full of chocolates, cookies and cheese! Just what I don't need right now.... but I did the right thing, opened it all up and left it on the filing cabinet for ... Read more
