Homemade snacks for the weekend (photos of yummy food - trigger warning!)
I use a system called the No S Diet. I've been following this system for coming up for 2 years now, and it suits me really well. It doesn't suit everyone, but for me, it's turned out to be the thing I'd been searching for! I've lost about a st... Read more

A walk around the bay
Today began with a grey, grey sky and rain. I had planned an adventure - but it didn't seem appealing if I was going to have to wear waterproofs from head-to-toe and keep wiping my glasses. So - I reconsidered............. I did want to get so... Read more
My March dietary challenge
I've been jogging along quite nicely on the No S diet (check out the team on Spark if you're curious) - which is 3 meals a day, no snacks, no seconds, no sweets, except at weekends and on special occasions. This system automatically cuts out a ... Read more
A walk out to Trevega Cliff
We've been experiencing pretty abysmal weather here lately - hail storms that caused accidents on the roads, rain that has flooded fields, wind that has caused damage......... it's not as bad as some parts of the country, or the World - but it'... Read more

More than just running........ OK!
I'm 62. I'm a healthy weight. I take no medication. I'm pretty fit and strong.
I run three or four times a week, and am getting stronger doing that. I do yoga whenever I can, and I'm getting stronger and more flexible doing that. But I'... Read more
Busted Baking! Stress-busting challenge 28/28
Well, thanks to everyone who read and commented on my last blog about an experiment in timing. Seems like we all pretty much agree - it we don't want to find ourselves eating it, we just have to give up baking it! Sad, but true!
