Hi - just checking in with my friends here on Spark People. I've slackened up a bit lately - not because I'm slack really, but because I've been busy with work and work-like stuff. My yoga has slipped.......... I haven't been swimming...... Read more

Timetabling crisis!

Saturday, January 17, 2015      7 comments

I've been feeling like life is all work, work, work lately. It's cold, wet, yucky out and I've not been out walking for leisure much - just to and from work stuff. Read more

No progress is progress ;)

Friday, January 16, 2015      6 comments

As I stepped on, and off, the scales this morning and got the data - I'm the same, same, same, I realised how important being part of this Spark community is to me. Even though I am 'maintaining' a steady weight (in the normal range) - I am... Read more

Keen to be lean

Sunday, January 11, 2015      6 comments

Did you see the video Spark Guy posted today - about the young woman who learned to dance in a year? It was very inspirational. About making small amounts of progress every day, based on dedicated practising. Then Barbara posted a stanz... Read more

An indulgence that didn't go too badly (trigger alert!)

Saturday, January 03, 2015      6 comments

In our office at work there was a carrier bag containing two boxes of luxury hand-made chocolate. Each box had 4 x 85g bars of chocolate (all different flavours - you can imagine!). No-one knew whose it was, where it had come from, who it was ... Read more

Buffet tracking

Thursday, January 01, 2015      9 comments

I found myself at another shared lunch buffet today! Oh my god, what a spread! I took grapes as my contribution. I only ate a very small amount (see my tracker today's lunch if you're interested) which I've tracked as best as I can. I ... Read more

Benfits of beach walking

Sunday, December 28, 2014      8 comments

I live near the beach. I rarely walk on it! But, today I did! I have a new pair of 'barefoot' shoes which are designed to go in and out of water - so I took them ... Read more

So near, yet so far!

Saturday, December 27, 2014      7 comments

I've just been spending some time updating my Spark Page, my tracker and goals etc. On the face of it, it looks so easy - I only need to lose 4lbs to reach my goal. But losing that 4lbs and maintaining it is not so easy. However, ... Read more

It's just food!

Thursday, December 11, 2014      9 comments

I had a sort of epiphany today! I realised that I no longer spend all my time thinking about food. I used to spend most of my time thinking about my next meal - or my next eating opportunity. I would feel anxious if I didn't have food with... Read more

It's only 9pm and I'm ready for bed - yawning and frankly bored with myself! I feel a bit 'aimless' with the 10 days break from work ahead of me - and 'afraid' of wasting it! I also feel a bit lost without the pressure of work. I've been on a s... Read more

Bye Bye Butterfly

Friday, November 21, 2014      7 comments

The butterfly was in the same place and position this morning, so, as I was at home, I decided to move it downstairs near the garden window. Again, it keeled over - and I thought it was dead. I put it on the downstairs window sill - and, blow ... Read more

Butterfly update!

Thursday, November 20, 2014      4 comments

The butterfly hasn't budged from it's spot (as far as I know!) - I'm not going to touch it again, as I'm afraid of damaging it - but I shall open the window tomorrow morning and see if it's interested in going out. I've sent a message to the UK... Read more

Butterfly story!

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      4 comments

This story has nothing to do with diets - but it was so amazing that I wanted to share it with you! Yesterday evening I found a butterfly in my spare room upstairs - it had it's wings folded shut, and was on the wall near the window. I car... Read more

F&M 30/100

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      3 comments

Chapter 30 is Postpone Eating Ha! Well, it's easy to see how to apply this to my behaviour around money: postpone spending. So - when I see something I think I must purchase right now - I STOP - and wait a while......... and maybe the ... Read more

a delicious lunch! (video blog)

Saturday, November 08, 2014      5 comments

not a great quality video - but wanted to say 'hi!' in person today :) (I noticed afterwards that I have berries on my chin, and a blackberry seed between my teeth - but ........ hey.........that's life!) This vlog is mainly for my Spa... Read more
