Low Carb eating

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      8 comments

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

Limiting Sugar

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      6 comments

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. "One hint I got from the hospital when I was advised to monitor my sug... Read more

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

Spark Time!

Thursday, February 05, 2015      5 comments

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

Cool Kit!

Sunday, February 01, 2015      5 comments

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

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
