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
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.
No progress is progress ;)
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
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!)
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
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
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!
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!
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
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
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
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
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!
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
