Wednesday, February 13, 2013      13 comments

For those of you who saw my blog yesterday - and watched the video . . . . this has led to a huge change in my mindset. I looked at a whole lot more of Robin's videos - and I realised that I am done with Spark People. As Robin would say - "... Read more

=lL-PqQCzEgw For all my spark friends that are on a good thing, this probably is not for you. Any who have gain-lose-gain and binge/restrict patterns, you might find this enlightening. I did! When ... Read more
Stretching and Strengthening
Sunday, February 10, 2013      3 comments

I am focusing on these - 10+ mins daily. I want an exercise mat (my birthday is coming up), and I am going to commit to this little amount of time every day for me. If I can't manage that - then I need to take a long hard look at myself! ... Read more
The world's least intuitive Intuitive Eater
Thursday, February 07, 2013      8 comments

I have talked before about my occasional breakfast cereal binges . . . and today I have had a realisation. I think I am actually craving the milk that goes with it. So, I feel the need to binge on cereal - and I am going to have a tall glas... Read more
How Intuitive Eating is going . . . .

HISTORY When I lost weight with SP I got down the 58kg (127lb ish) - which was a super low weight for me. I then set this arbitrary maintenance range of 58-60kg (127 to 132lb) which I maintained for almost a year . . . when I decided that I... Read more
Get Back

The physio really got his elbow into me. And I feel so much better for it. He has also strapped my lower back ahead of a training ride tomorrow - fingers crossed that I goes OK. He said he would call me on Thursday to see how the ride goes. No... Read more
How a positive turned my day around
Sunday, January 20, 2013      5 comments

Remember I fell off my mountain bike about 2 weeks ago? On my own, in the Aussie bush and I went right over the handle bars. I had plenty of time to register that 'this is going to hurt" before I hit the ground. And guess what? It did hurt. ... Read more
I went for minutes today without even thinking about food.

I might have even got up to an hour. Without thinking about food once. I have got to tell you that I feel free. Intuitive eating is really starting to agree with me. ... Read more
Thinking like a thin person, or using intuition.
Saturday, January 12, 2013      6 comments

I was thinking this morning about how reading Beck's book about thinking like a thin person had a negative effect on me. The book had some real pearls of wisdom, some of which I still try to remember in my daily like - but overall, looking back ... Read more
Mindful & Intuitive Eating
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      9 comments

Today I joined the Mindfulness Eating Challenge. This seems to me to be very strongly aligned with Intuitive Eating. Today I feel like I did really well trying to be more aware when I am eating or deciding what to eat. Something I want to cont... Read more
I weighed in today . . .
Monday, January 07, 2013      5 comments

. . . and I am a half kilo over the arbitrary range I set for myself as being "at goal". This is also 2.5 kilos above the weight I was at the beginning of December. (but at a BMI of 20.5, it is still a good weight for me) I knew I had gai... Read more
My holiday horror
Saturday, January 05, 2013      5 comments

This is really difficult for me to write about - but at the same time, I want to get it off my chest. What should I have done? What would you have done? I spent part of the holidays with my cousin - who I am not very close to, but she was i... Read more
New Year's (Re)solution
Friday, January 04, 2013      5 comments

I suspect I have gained weight - but the interesting thing is how I am reacting to this. I am not jumping on the scale to see what the damage is. I am not tracking my food again - even though I know this works for weight loss. I am not ... Read more
Koala ears or the whole package
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      11 comments

Ok - I think I have a point to make. It might take a bit of a journey to get there - but bare with me. So, on the weekend I got all my hair cut off. All off. There is not a single hair on my head that is longer than an inch. Great for summe... Read more
December Goals
Friday, November 30, 2012      11 comments

While riding my bike this morning, I got to thinking about my December goals (I do some of my best thinking on my bike). I think the change in my goals from November to December says a lot about where I am at - at it is all good Goals for N... Read more
