Music is a huge inspiration for me, and I sing when I need to feel uplifted. This song is a particular favourite, it's from a Swedish movie that is simply wonderful! ****************************

I've been away at a conference, but have managed to stick to my food & exercise plan anyway, which feels really great! The only thing I'm sorry about is breaking my login streak here since I was offline. ... Read more

I went hiking in the woods behind our house this evening. Fun to climb a bit and walk/jog up and down in the terrain. Went up to the lake and was almost eaten alive by mosquitos! I'm glad I had long sleeves. I feel really proud of myself for goi... Read more

I'm getting closer to my first milestone and need to have a look at my goals and mini-goals once I have been to the doctor next week. It is another ten days before I see him, and I'll keep up with my exercise, and I really do hope it will ... Read more

My mother-in-law asked me if I'd lost weight today! Wonderful to be able to say "Yes, thanks for noticing!" My dearest has also mentioned that my tummy feels smaller, but I hadn't really believed him. ... Read more

I actually jogged a bit today! I called it "interval training" since I mostly walked and I feel warm and fuzzy all over after a great day. I need to get myself some better shoes if I'm keeping this up, those I have are meant for walking only. Bu... Read more

Another gloriously sunny day and we had a special celebration tonight: I invited my dearest out to our favourite Chinese restaurant since it was his birthday. I hope the dry fried beef and fois gras I had won't stick to me, since this was a spec... Read more

I'm working on building good exercise habits and being consistent about it, and so far I haven't done too badly. I have just found out about the streaks here and have started logging my walks and water there, I think that's really motivating. Bu... Read more

I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong with my calculations of nutrition and/or fitness since I'm constantly struggling to eat enough to reach the lower end of my calorie range. I eat small meals often and I only eat until I'm full, si... Read more

I tidied my clothes and rearranged everything in my wardrobe. I also walked the usual round after dinner, fairly quickly, so I was out an hour. Excellent day, and I have avoided fretting about work and will not think about the mess on my desk un... Read more

I'm feeling like I have a cold brewing and I'm struggling today, but I'm not giving up. It's just one of those days where I haven't done my sit-ups, walked just 3000 steps, drank just 4 or 5 glasses of water and had rhubarb crumble pie with my u... Read more

I had a rotten day at work today. I've been mostly out-of-office since late March, working on a project, and my regular work is piling up on my desk. My boss doesn't seem to take any notice or action, even though I've spoken with her several tim... Read more
