Highgrove House

I was lucky enough yesterday to take a tour of the Gardens at Highgrove House - which is where Prince Charles lives (or old Big Ears himself as I call him. Sorry Chaz - I... Read more

I walked and I walked and I walked and I walked

Phew. Up early this morning to go in to the City (of London) for a guided walk along the beach of the Thames at low tide. We had an expert archaeologist walk us along the... Read more

Changing Tack - The Fast Diet (5:2)

Sunday, May 26, 2013      9 comments

OK - so I was unemployed there for a while BUT on the upside I used the time to institute a new fitness regime. I started work the week before last week and everything went askew. Suddenly my routine is completely different and I can't do what... Read more

Another Week - Bob-Bob-Bobbing Along

Sunday, May 05, 2013      4 comments

Things in my life are not especially eventful at the moment - which can be a blessing in many ways. It means I'm focussing on my health and getting in to good habits - I see it sometimes as putting in a new foundation. So after a couple of... Read more

Kind of a Funny Old Week

Sunday, April 28, 2013      4 comments

I started this past week on good form: did my C25Ks, did my Pilates, did AM yoga which was wonderful. But then I went off the boil - which I'm pretty sure is down to PMT. I know it happens every month but it always catches me be surprise. ... Read more

Major Non-Scale Victory under my belt

Sunday, April 21, 2013      6 comments

My weight peaked a couple of years ago at a whopping 259 lbs. One of the things that was really horrible about being that weight was that I couldn't find a belt in a normal store that fit me - they didn't even come around my waist let alo... Read more

Coming Back to SparkPeople

Saturday, April 20, 2013      3 comments

I joined SparkPeople last year in November and did well for a while, but I went off the boil and then Christmas came and oh boy, did I over do it! In January I had a major panic with gallstones - I didn't know I had them. One of my gallsto... Read more

Easy Does It

Sunday, April 14, 2013      0 comments

Iíve noticed that lotís of people on SP are talking about the Fast Diet Ė it looks really good and seems to have strong scientific support so maybe one day Iíll be joining in (but for now, not so much). In the UK the Fast Diet was first brought... Read more

Oooh - thank you very much

Tuesday, April 09, 2013      3 comments

I've recently been starting to practice Pilates (in a small way) to help heal my body and get it back in to correct alignment. When I was on Weight Watchers I noticed on the blogs that a lot of people would start doing the C25K programme and th... Read more

I'm on the Move

Wednesday, November 28, 2012      2 comments

So, it's my weigh in tomorrow morning. I think my results will be all over the place. Firstly, on Sunday I ate far too many calories - but I guess that will happy every now and again - I'm not too worried - I snapped right back on the prog... Read more

Another 3lbs? Really?

Thursday, November 22, 2012      5 comments

Guys, I'm finding this a little surreal. On WW my weight loss progress was like: I'd lose 3lbs and then I wouldn't lose again for another 6 weeks. I think it's also a different style of community here - the focus of attention is much... Read more

3.5 lbs off in one week

Sunday, November 11, 2012      6 comments

This move from WW to Spark People is proving to be a really good one - and I've lost 3.5 lbs in just one week. I had been following the WW programme closely for the few weeks before the switch, so this isn't a 'water loss'. It's not the dietin... Read more

And I'm Off

Thursday, November 08, 2012      2 comments

I've registered my first loss on Spark People: 2.5 lbs off. In the UK (as you may or may not know) we group the pounds in to stones - 14lbs in a stone. This loss has taken me down in to the next stone bracket. When I very first started on... Read more

Mini-Miracle This Morning

Monday, November 05, 2012      2 comments

For me a little miracle this morning. I balanced my bank account yesterday and discovered that a payment had gone out that I hadn't anticipated for (I'd completely forgotten it was due). I realised that if this payment cleared overnight it... Read more
