Today was full, tiring and fun. Took little Crusoe to see a local youth performance of Pirates Of Penzance. He absolutely loved it, including the adventure of going out late with Mama and some friends. I really enjoyed giving him such an experie... Read more
One of the daily routines I have picked up again is taking the time to browse around different Sparkpages. I find it usually inspiring, and fun to see our Spark community's diversity.
Today I stumbled across MJ-SHE-BEAST 's page. What an am... Read more
Today Crusoe and his buddy were so very excited about the 'play in the mud' that they had planned. Old clothes and gumboots and lots of pestering of me "Is it time to go yet... Read more
Wow, Day 405 already. Where did all that time go!
LOL. Didn't get much sleep last night and it's almost time for bed now, so my humour is somewhat iffy. Today we just did normal winter school holiday things. Playing checkers and scrabble. ... Read more
Day 406 B
Bear with me, I know this post is long. But it's got a lot of good things in it - promise!
The team's not very active any more, but I popped over to Coach Toughlove's Motivation Boot Camp and found the ONE thing he (Coach Dean) wrote in 200... Read more
Day 406 is the first day of my very clear time-related weight loss goal.
But wait, there's more!
Day 406 is about learning new behaviours which WILL slowly choke the life out of several self-sabotaging habits or thought pr... Read more
Energy -- 4/10
Sleep last night -- 2/10 (Crusoe sick)
Eating -- much better - no binges today. Maybe because of my raging throat, but I'll take what I can get this week.
Goals for today -- take it easy.

I want to ask you, 'What are your triggers?'
For me, the evenings are difficult. My mouth actually experiences a weird sort of craving to CHEW.
I am also prone to getting my hunger and thirst signals mixed, so tend to want somethi... Read more
Goal-setting. Ugh....oh wait, I can do this
Something happened in the last week, an penny-drop of the type that goes straight to your unconscious and voila, a change started to occur.
I really needed to change the story I was living out - a story of my own making where I wander throu... Read more
Personal Goals for 2011!
There's a lot happening this year for me - many changes. I'm not sure I am looking forward to all of them but I am sure all of them can turn positive. I often live goal-lessly, from one day to the next, one year to the next - with only a vague n... Read more
whoa - weight gain!
I've gone up 1.5kg.
But why am I not hassled by it? Cos I am not going to judge myself a failure. I KNOW I've eaten better. I KNOW I have been more active. I'm gonna get there!
I also know that my period is due, and that over the weeke... Read more
Living With Our Beliefs, Good and Bad.
I originally posted this over at the Boombah Club, but thought I may as well share it here for everyone. Shame of our own body is a terrible thing, but I believe its power over us can lessen in time.

Off like a rocket
I have been just plodding along - a pound here, a pound there. But not really motivated. A few twitter friends have banded together to drop a certain, achievable amount and it's really set me on fire.
So gym today. And together with some Aussi... Read more
Getting back with a fighting attitude
I'm angry. I'm angry that I have put this weight back on. I'm angry that I have to go through all this crap again. I'm so ashamed that there are places I have refused to go to, since this weight gain. I'm angry that I am ashamed. I'm angry th... Read more
