Little Diddy Nibbles
I went for a swim this morning - did 20 mins! I am so chuffed with myself because I can feel that I'm making progress - stronger, more stamina. And I'm loving the feel-good factor :)
To be honest, I'm a 'lone exerciser'; I walk alone, run ... Read more
Cake is still 'cake' by any other name!
I am doing really well eating low-carb etc. The scale is going down and I'm feeling good.
I love, love, love my cookery books - and have a lot them: vegan cooking, raw food, low-carb, low GI, vegetarian without wheat, dairy, sugar, yeast... Read more
Low Carb eating
I've been doing a lower-carb, higher protein eating plan for the past week and have to say, I'm feeling good (and the scale is going down).
At the moment I'm eating much more vegetable protein, eggs, dairy, than I am used to - but it's wor... Read more
I just wanted to share this tip I read in the comments on a Spark Friend's blog today - it seems like a possible way forward as I aim to live a more low-carb life-style.

My Own Valentine
I've been going through the 100 Days of Weight Loss book for the second time, and finding that I really was just turning the pages and not really working through any new stuff... Read more
I've been in a routine lately of getting up at 5.30am - making my decaff coffee, then chanting (my buddhist stuff) for half an hour - getting breakfast, packing lunch/snacks, get washed and dressed - go to work by 7.30am.
Today's a day o... Read more
I made a little video showing off the four great storage containers I'd found in my local store - but after 16 hours the video's still not showing on Spark - so I've given ... Read more
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
