  • Life....happening

    1/27/2015 9:56:05 AM, by RADOOGA

    Afternoon Sparklies. It's been a while! Life marches on I suppose. It was a year ago last week that my beautiful mum passed away, and this week would have been my parents 49th wedding anniversary, and my first son's 17th birthday, so lots of anniversaries. Not much time to reflect though. I have had... Read more

  • First Day of Couch to 5k.

    1/14/2015 7:17:24 AM, by RADOOGA

    I have been putting this off for a while, and then baby Crystal arrived, and then the weather, and then the moon was in the wrong phase...you get my drift. Today the sun was shining, I have no work outside of the home, I feel well, and had already achieved more before 10am this morning than I did i... Read more

  • My Special Project to Build Wonderful Memories

    1/12/2015 6:50:20 PM, by HANNAHSGRAMMIE

    I have been wanting to share a special project that I finally finished the week before Christmas. I had some "play" furniture (table/4 chairs, refrigerator, crib, buffet, high chair) that my dad built for me as a Christmas present in 1960, when I was 3 years old. It was just built out of scraps an... Read more

    Morning Sparklies. What a few days I've had. I mentioned over Christmas that my nephew and his partner were expecting a baby...well, she is here! Beautiful baby Crystal Louise arrived after a 17minute labour (I know), and is perfect, and gorgeous, and has completely stolen my heart. Read more

    If you read my blog, you'll see that I've been in a really dark place since I've started it. I'm sorry for all the depressing, whiny blog posts. I've even thought about deleting them but won't because I want to see my journey later on. Anyway, The spark that I've been waiting for has hit. Seriously.... Read more

  • Not bad....!

    I came back to work after an 11-day break, and started my new lifestyle... again. Low Carb. I've tried many times and always fall off the wagon, usually within a day or 2, just because I'm too lazy to prepare or too busy playing taxi, and I opt for the easy way out.. take out. Well... we're n... Read more

  • Old Fatty Pictures

    1/6/2015 9:58:53 AM, by RADOOGA

    Two blogs in one day. Obviously procrastinating from work. :-) Whilst writing the previous blog, I tapped into some old photos. They were quite hard to look at. Despite the fact that I knew I was so much heavier, I was quite camera shy, most pictures are from a very long way away. I was al... Read more

  • Feeling defeated on the first day of new year!

    1/1/2015 8:54:55 PM, by WENDYWRITES

    Dan and I had to do some errands today. Well, I have a new recipe I wanted to try so I needed to go to the store and he needed to get a part for the car. It turned out that we did a lot of driving to find this part but couldn't because every place he wanted to go to was closed. So... we had woke up ... Read more

  • The Punch List

    1/1/2015 8:07:43 PM, by PINKHOPE

Some are quite difficult. I'm putting them all here so I can review a year from now and see just how w... Read more
