Temptation everywhere!!
Tuesday, October 18, 2011      4 comments

What a strange weekend....and beginning of the week. So many activities seem to be centred around food! I went shopping with a friend of mine this weekend and the trip involved not one, but two stops at a coffee shop, and walking into a mul... Read more
Indian food!
Saturday, October 15, 2011      3 comments

On Wednesday night I suggested to my husband that we have dinner this Friday at our local Indian restaurant. His immediate reaction was 'Won't that be expensive? Expensive for your calories, I mean?' (He's really getting into this calorie counti... Read more
5kg lighter!!
Thursday, October 13, 2011      6 comments

It was a big moment this morning in our bathroom. So big, that my husband had to double check the scale for me. (I'm short sighted and we have a manual scale, and I struggle to read the lines in between the numbers!) But, after his assurances, I... Read more
The changes
Monday, October 10, 2011      2 comments

As I was thinking about this blog and what to call it, I began to realized that these must be the lifestyle changes that people are talking about. And then I began wondering if I will be able to maintain these changes long term. Usually we eat... Read more

The doctor's surgery that I visit has a very high turnover of doctors. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen the same doctor twice! (I don't go very often). Yesterday the doctor who was seeing me also happened to be doing her Masters degree in... Read more
A very special day

One month ago today, after much umming and aahing I decided to give sparkpeople a try. I thought what's the worst that could happen? Well, I'm now 4kg (about 8 pounds) lighter and I've lost about 3 inches worth around my waist and thighs. And ... Read more
Holding on for the apple pie!
Monday, October 03, 2011      2 comments

My husband bought apple pie a few days ago, but we have not been able to eat it yet because every time it gets to the evening I've used up my calories! So, today I planned it. Now I'm sitting waiting for my husband to get home and staying as far... Read more
Three weeks - really?
Friday, September 30, 2011      3 comments

The most interesting part of this week is how reflective I have become over my life, and whether I'm happy with it. It's funny how a decision to take care of my health, has now got me thinking about the rest of my life too. The last two days ... Read more
Teaching my other half....
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      2 comments

My husband and I share kitchen duty. As we both work, this really helps keep a balance in our home life, and I always appreciate a meal cooked by him. He knows I'm counting calories, so he worked hard tonight to make a healthy meal - his idea of... Read more

So, another amazing blog writer (diets aren't catching....something like that) encouraged me to do my strength training today. I find it amazing how inspiring this website is for me. And now I find myself not just thinking about my calorie in... Read more
Emotional eating
Saturday, September 24, 2011      2 comments

What an interesting day. I started reading some of the wellness articles today, mainly the ones about emotional eating. One of the articles spoke about putting the 'I' into the phrases that are our excuses for doing the things that we don't want... Read more

I managed to beat my procastinator button this evening and went for a jog out in the last of the Autumn evening sunshine. I think it may have been one of the message boards I was reading about procrastination that actually encouraged me to get m... Read more

What I'm learning
Monday, September 19, 2011      1 comments

I don't know what to do with my emotions if I'm not eating food. I can say 'no' to food that I used to think was iresistable. Except for dessert. That may take time. If I put my mind to it, I don't snack mindlessly in the evenings. I need... Read more
