Today's fitness - a canopy tour
Wednesday, August 28, 2013      9 comments

It was a short canopy tour, maybe 20-30 minutes. But I climbed up about four storeys of stairs. Then crossed a hanging bridge. Then climbed another, oh, maybe five or six storeys of steps. Ending up 1200 feet (400 meters) above ground, o... Read more
Swam a blue hole. Killed my pedometer.
Sunday, August 18, 2013      17 comments

Yup - we swam out to a blue hole and snorkeled around. I forgot to take off my pedometer from my swimsuit bottom. Have you ever seen a pedometer screen with water sloshing around inside? Fortunately, I had a spare in my luggage. Photos (... Read more

This was my birthday present from DH - and what a fabulous trip! And what a way to turn 59, by snorkeling with a few turtles, watching some whales, and burning about 500 calories while having fun!!!!! Here's the full blog, with photos from... Read more

I love crumpets, they are such a treat - keep them in the fridge, pop them in the toaster, use a scant pat of butter for two crumpets, a half tbsp of jam on each (raspberry or strawberry or apricot are my personal faves) - accompanied by two cup... Read more
Our sailing adventure!!!
Wednesday, July 24, 2013      9 comments

I think I burned calories just holding on - it was a wild and crazy day of sailing! We had a great time, despite freezing weather (for us) and opting to not snorkel. Oh, and they fed us well, but I ate minimally and my lunch sandwich was more ... Read more
Car pull ups!

The camper van we've rented is pretty high off the ground - I can manage to climb into the cab section when we're parked next to a curb (or kerb, in Aussie). But when I'm climbing in from the ground up, well, I'm a bit short to get in eas... Read more

And I'm already IN Australia! (You have to read the book if that doesn't make sense.) So, it started with me going over to the neighborhood medical center to get an appointment for the doctor, just to get lab tests to send to my US doctor,... Read more
Does your weight loss make your husband jealous?
Saturday, July 06, 2013      17 comments

Not jealous of your weight loss per se - no, jealous because he thinks other men are looking at you? I can't figure out if it's just my DH, if he's imagining men looking at me with lust in their eyes (his words, not mine!), or what - becaus... Read more

How to make a bed, Sparkie style

We're in a camper van. Small. Every chore becomes an exercise - in juggling, space creating, strength training, even cardio. To make the bed: First move items off the benches and into the cab of the van. Also move luggage from the f... Read more
Grocery shopping with DH - UGH!
Thursday, June 27, 2013      16 comments

DH and I have very different eating habits - his favorite vegetable is french fries. Really, I'm not joking. He will actually say that. So when we shop for groceries, he picks out one thing, I pick another. At home, we often have two kin... Read more
And we're off!

Just a quick note to let people know we're in our camper van, squeezed in with all of our stuff, and headed north along the coast. We're camped at a caravan park in Towoon Bay, which may or may not be on a map - very tiny place, but this ... Read more
