Westchick,

Just got back from the Dawn service here in Hanoi. 5am! Very moving. A rep from the Turkish embassy read that quote from Ataturk. and of course the poem you quoted was also read. Followed by the breakfast. The service was held in the grounds of the Australian embassy followed by a wonderful breakfast.

Home now and tired- probably not helped by all I ate at the breakfast.

Now to work as it is not a holiday here

ANZAC Day - 25th April 2014 - Lest we forget

They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We Will Remember Them

We Will Remember Them

LEST WE FORGET
.

ANZAC - stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops first landed on the beaches of the Gallipoli Peninsula, in Turkey on 25 April 1915 (WWl).
ANZAC Day became an official holiday in 1921


In 1934, the great Turkish statesman, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, sent this message to the mothers of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died at Gallipoli:

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country.
Therefore rest in peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets where they lie side by side here in this country of ours…
You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears.
Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace.
Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

NZ time 9.50am Friday 25 April 2014
Day 1738 = 4 year 8 month 21 day

Dear Declare,

Yep been there done that before and I don't want to go there again. last time is was also 50kg++ that went back on along with those feelings of hopelessness in this area of my life.Increased health problems etc etc, So lots has changed within me since I started this phase of my journey. I like most of us could not imagine allowing myself to get back to where I was, but in reality life happens, you let little things slip and then you cant be bothered and the next thing you know it is all back on and more!!

So my journey this time has kind of been with that somber reality of how easy it is to loose all the success I've gained and a lot of fear about this phase of maintenance. But also I realise I have grown and so am not so hard on myself or so black and white. i.e. when I have control of my food intake and time for exercise, I can do it really well, and if I cant have control I loose the plot completely. It really is a mind game for me all the way.

I am so glad I found metabolic balance though as for me it is really working and it definitely broke my stall so I am really happy to get back into the program as I feel so much better when I do. I looked and there seems to be only one metabolic coach in all of NZ and she seems to be somewhere near New Plymouth otherwise I would thoroughly recommend this system. But I know we all have to find our own way and I am still trying to find my way through this maintenance phase.

Good news is I have lost 1.5kg already being back on the program. And I am back at the gym working hard and feeling so much better than before.

I understand about the plateau thing as I was also up and downing for about 5 months last year before I found the MB plan and I just had to come to the conclusion that even if I wasn't going down at least it was better than going back up.

Anyway keep pushing!!!

Welcome back Ros - yeah life can get in the way sometimes ... but great that it is only 3kgs and you are back into it ... some of us are back 13 or 23 or 33 kilos before we even realise how far we have slipped back into the old mistakes etc ... you will kick those 3kgs to the curb in no time xx

I am still yoyoing the same 5 kgs up and down that I have been all year - but haven't given up :-)

Hi all,

Sorry I went AWOL there for a while. Life just got too hectic! I also joined a BLC challenge and even wasn't able to post for all that I was supposed to.

Hopefully things will settle back down again. I am at goal emoticon Well at least I was the week before Easter... But.... I haven't managed to hold onto it.

I had a crazy schedule balancing guests, consultants and country side visits so I broke every dietary rule of my new regime, including eating most meals out which involved some very elaborate buffet meals and then on top of that with Easter- yes Swiss Chocolate easter eggs were flowing and nostalgia raised its head and I produced some wonderful hot cross buns!!! Added to this recipe for disaster, I wasn't able to get to the Gym all week. So early mornings and late nights which = lack of adequate sleep to boot.

This all resulted in the scale being up 3KGs!!! emoticon So I decided not to beat myself up which would have been my old response, but instead just to go back on my plan, dust off the bicycle and to get back to the gym.I gave away all the remaining eggs and buns to my staff as well. It is already working as the scale was 1kg down this morning already.

So I am back on track and back to hang out with my friends and support team here, you have all been so supportive during this long journey. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! emoticon Actually my goal at the moment is to stabilise my weight! This is a big challenge for me and there is a lot of fear in there about how easy it is for it all to slip!

Anyway enough of the gloom. I had a wonderful Easter even got to sing with the Choir Easter morning service. So a new week is on its way and so am I once more.

Happy Easter everyone

I am not really into the "royals" as such but I do have some favourites in the Royal family - due to their causes and/or personalities and I am enjoying watching K&W and how they are making changes to public perception at the same time keeping the traditionalists happy :-) I hope you enjoyed the photo op

Haven't any news to report but am ticking along losing and regaining the same couple of kilos repeatedly :-( but I guess at least that means my body has a new "top" weight as I haven't gone above it for a while now :-)

Good morning and gosh the weekend has come around again.... time sure flies fast.

Deb: Yay good news re your debt... hope you get it all paid off real soon.

Mumsy: Congrats on another grandie :-)

TF: Setting up a new computer can be so much fun or even a pain in the butt.... transferring stuff over and even remembering all your passwords and all your favourite links that you used before on the old computer.

Kystle: Congrats on getting into the hockey team..

I have been busy of late so not been around on here much..
But yesterday I was on Royal watch... and got up fairly close to W & K.

A big welcome to wee Kate - have fun with her :-)

Well I have a huge smile on my face - first one in a while I confess and admittedly it is nothing to do with food, weight, exercise all those things I seem to be failing at the moment but it is LIFE changing - as some of you are aware financially I have been a mess for many many years and today I went from killing myself each week just to be able to attempt to make it and not getting anywhere to being able to breath ... I have every 6mths for the last 4 years attempted to move my nasty debt with a big bad finance company to banks/credit unions etc and had no luck in fact my own bank actually laughed at me about 2 years ago so I closed that account and joined a new bank. They were very helpful but still would not give me a loan ... last week I got a chance to get a loan through them but then they didn't approve enough to cover the whole amount so I was stuck in the middle ... they asked me to get some figures and statements together and they would try to get the loan approved for the amount I needed ... in the process of trying to get said information my big bad finance company decided to turn into a cuddly teddy bear ... so ummmm my 27% interest has been changed to 12.9% interest - yep an even better rate than the banks offer of 18% but without jumping through hoops or possibly being declined anyway - that makes a huge difference to my debt and to my repayments :-) sooooo friggin happy

Thank you all for your kind words.
The other things that has happened is that we have now had our 6th grandchild a little girl called Kate. I am off to Wellington to see her and help put on Saturday for about 10 days so that will be nice

Hi Mumsey - yes I heard about the rotter that didn't stop on FB :-( but I am glad you are improving in that regard - shame the docs can't get on top of your other health issues - may be time to look into some alternatives?? I found trying alternatives was what actually got me on the right track to get a diagnosis

TF - lol my budding filmmaker just got a new laptop and windows 8 is not very user friendly - we canot even get it to accept our printer either :-( I like a lot of aspects of WW but sadly never lost any weight doing it - I do like the tracking etc so hope it works well for you

Krystle - WOOHOO GO YOU - yeah we were really lucky with the weather and although it looks a bit worse for wear the house is still standing and the last of the kids left about 7.30pm last night :-) after two encounters with police (someone reported one of the girls as trying to commit suicide even though there were a dozen other teens with giant film gear and they told him what they were doing - dork - police were a little frustrated with him and put their flashing lights on for kids for film :-) and then later in the night they were filming a scene in a quiet road and the police stopped to advise them filming in the middle of a road wasn't very safe and let them use his headlights for some extra light for a while :-) good cops in Tauranga)

WC - great photos of the Gannets and Muriwai recently and the ones of Cornwall Park reminded me of some happy picnics there :-)

hi everyone,

Ive been without a computer for awhile so I haven't been around, finally got a new one and its a little hard to get used to the new set up. windows 8 everything is different and when I finally just got used to the old one, I have to get a new one arghhhhhhhhhhhhh, lol

anyway im sorry to hear of your trouble mumsey, I really hope you can find some answers soon and you can get back to your cheerful self.

I have started weightwatchers because I just wasn't doing it properly here at home, I think I needed some extra help, so I have done that and will stay accountable that way. im really liking the app on the mobile for tracking etc, it has a lot more new Zealand food to find so its more accurate- I can do it instantly and not have to remember what I ate when I get back home etc. so in that respect I think it will be heaps better for me anyway. its always on me and it just looks like im txting someone instead of having to explain what im doing etc. my first weigh in is on Wednesday so I will update here with that, as I no longer have scales at home. I will continue to track my fitness on this forum as its much better than the weight watchers one for options etc.

Hi all,
It's been a while so this might be a long one. I've been so busy with so many commitments and fitness lately it's been crazy. Last month I set myself the goal of doing 2000 fitness minutes in the month (not including hockey, umpiring, volleyball or my lunchtime walks) and man was it hard that last week trying to catch up after I had inevitably fallen behind. I think I average 110 minutes a day in the last 3 days. I may have over done it a little :S as I was feeling absolutely knacked but I pulled through and reached my goal yay! This month I am going to include my hockey training in my minutes so I don't wear myself out before the season starts.
Last month I also officially got into the women's intercity hockey team for Mt. Maunganui which I am absolutely stoked about, I got my restricted licence finally after previously failing twice in the last couple of years this has absolutely changed my life and I've only had it for just over a week! I didn't quite reach my goal to get down to 90kg by 31st March but I'm damn close. I've lost over 9kg now and I barely recognise my reflection which is so bizarre and to think I still have another 20kg to get down to a healthy BMI.
In other news, last night I went on my very first date ever. The guy is absolutely lovely and we are going to make plans for another date :D
Declare, is your house still intact after filming this weekend? At least the weather was pretty good. and Mumsey I hope you health improves soon

Hello
No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.
I have been rally struggling with my health and there still doesn't seem to be any answers yet. (Still seeing the doctor for tests etc) and then two weeks ago I had an accident.

It wasn't my fault which is what really annoys me.I stopped at a stop sign but the guy a bit behind me didn't and just drove into the back of me pushing my car into the other road and even buckling my back car wheel with the force.
I have suffered some whip lash and general aches and pains but seem to be recovered from that.

My car still isn't fixed yet and thankfully the insurances covers it all. But it is so frustrating. mind you I am having to walk.

I am also struggling as I basically have to start all over again as I am right up to the weight I was when I first started - in three months it all came on And I had worked at it for two years.

I have been busy and tired so I just haven't made computer my priority. I am hoping that I can get back on so hopefully will be here more often.

Well it is Friday (YAY) and my daughter Miss soon to be 19, that went flatting earlier in the year is home for the weekend with 12 teenagers - she is a budding film-maker and is in a competition this week and her landlord would not let her host her team at her place - they get given a theme and usually about 3 key things that have to be included in the film tonight and then have 48hours to write a script, film, edit and submit it ... they have a lot of fun but it will be very loud at my place this weekend - and the weather man has just announced it is heavy rain all the way through ... could be interesting to see what effect that has

Hope you are all well and happy

Hi all - first day back at work and I'm still not 100% - anyway I wanted to say hello and let you all know I was still alive :-)

Had really settled into a pretty good routine before I got sick so I am a little ashamed to admit I fell off the wagon big time yesterday food wise and have done nothing at all exercise related for a week

Life at home is very weird and quiet - I am enjoying having my own room though :-)

hi ladies :)

Antibiotics are kicking in and the pain is far less today, and yes deb, i have the same problem with pain killers and pills also, thats why i only now take iburphen for my pain, thats all, cos everything else dosent do anything and i am just filling my body up with chemicals they dont have any results... i think fibro has a lot to do with that 2.

im sorry to hear of your troubles, i hope you find some peace soon. take care.

how is everyone else these days, hows your health mumsey? Westchick im guessing you are as busy as ever :) and Ros how are you doing :) hope all is well - keep smiling :)

I apologize in advance for the very brief but very rage filled rant that is about to happen - but I needed to "voice" it

Now nearly everyone knows Hubby and I have been having almost constant issues - actually in honesty from before we got married but today I have just hit an all time low - about 5 minutes ago I learned he is earning more than a third more a year of his yearly income than he has told me - here I am struggling every week while he barely contributes and he has $12000 extra (and probably more as he has other sources of income too) I am sooooo over this nonsense I can't believe there is anyone else on the planet that thinks they way he does and thinks a marriage does not include any joining of lives, money, goals, plans ... I will be confronting him tonight

rant over thanks for listening and again I am sorry

Ouch - I don't think the pain killers work for absesses but even if they did I would think the fibro may be a factor too as I have weird reactions to meds now - things that are meant to perk me up make me crash, things that are meant to make me sleep wake me up, pain meds do not work at all ... it's all bizarre

Hope the antibiotics kick in fast xx

hi ladies :)

yes deb i put on sad movies for the exact same reason at times, its just easier not to explain bcause half of the time the explanation doesnt ever come out right and starts a whole new set of problems.

im at 123 also at the moment and hoping that by 1st week of may when im due back at the doctors i will be down at least to 115 im hoping anyway. slow and steady wins the race. but not snail pace or up and down like in my past.......

i went to dentist this morning to get out 2 teeth that have been needing attention for a long time, but they couldnt get it out, they dosed me up with heaps of pain killers stuff but it felt like the nerve was totally exposed, and it was hell.....im good with pain, but maybe i have got soft over these years or because i am so large all there painkiller stuff isnt strong enough because of the ratio's, it was hard work, they ended up hving to re fill with a temp filling, and gave me antibiotics because there was a large absess underneath it and thats what they said the pain was that i was feeling, so im on hold for another 8 days until i can go back and hopefully it will work that time. ive had teeth out in the past and never had this trouble, (with absessess also) mainly because by the time i feel any pain, its absessed and thats why i go to the dentist, bugger it :(

hope your day ladies was better than mine today. lol.

Hi Ladies, thanks TF, well I peaked at 127.5 from memory but as of this morning are back just under 123 so hoping to be back on track soon :-)

I am going well with food and exercise even though everything else is a bit tricky at the moment - I refuse to put myself last again - in fact from now on I am NUMERO UNO or however you spell it :-)

TF - silly scales and silly bodys and silly fibro *sticks out tongue at it all* I so know wht you mean about laughing when you are scared you may start crying - I was doing that last week and ended up doing this weird snort hiccup and bursting into tears that would not stop - but when they did I actually felt better - so the next night I was feeling a bit blah so I put on atar jerker movie and just let them flow - nobody knew it was nothing to do with the movie

hi guys,

sorry to hear about your week deb, i think it has something to do with the climate changes of seasons, i cant seem to get motivated, my body is sore and im soooo blimmin tired all the time. i know i have to keep moving but the thought exhausts me at the moment. hahahahha. i know its not a laughing matter but if i dont laugh i feel i will cry. i totally understand about the scales, mine were so out of whack compared to my doctors, like 5 kilos different, i decided to get rid of them and buy new ones, but they arnt working, nothing nada comes up.....so i think thats a sign from above to tell me to only weigh myself at the doctors every 3 months, so i will change my ticker from the bottom of the page to excercise mnutes as then it looks like im achieiving something and i need visuals.

i hope you are better deb, keep keeping on, we knew it wasnt going to be easy with fibro chucked into the mix but we can do it if we continue to put one foot in front of the other. slow and steady will get us there. :)

Too nice a day to be stuck at work :-( looking forward to a lazy day tomorrow :-)

Weight is down another kilo so still up from March 1st but at 500gms-1kg a day going down I guess By April 1st I'll be back on track :-) sticking to my 1200 calories a day and mostly low carb and limiting processed foods seems to be working

Thanks Krystlelou - yeah usually my scales are hidden but I am unable to give them to anyone at the moment as I know my doctor will want to know any patterns when I go see her so I am tracking EVERYTHING including daily weight :-( luckily I am down again this morning so in two days down 2.4kgs :-) so looks like I'm coming right thankfully, as soon as I am back to "normal" I will be back to fortnightly weighing

Today I discovered Bulla frozen yoghurt mini "iceblocks" - they are only 46 calories and though I won't plan to have one every day certainly satisfied my craving icecream which can be disastrous in the calorie department - New World have them on special this week for a box of 14 mixed flavours :-) so a cheap healthier alternative - as long as the rest of the family don't eat them all :-)

Oh, D. I know what those downward spirals are like they're no fun. If you need a coffee buddy/ someone to talk to let me know. As for the scales, it might pay to give them to a third party to hold on to and they can give them back once a fortnight. For me the scales are at the gym.

Soooo I am heading towards a major state of depression and trying very hard to pull myself out of it - the scales yesterday morning had me over 7.5kgs up from March 1st - I keep telling myself to stay off them but its like a train wreck I just can't stop looking :-( this morning THANK GOD down 1.5kgs - really hoping this is the turning point and they head down now

Home life is really bad and work life is worse - health is playing up and well I am absolutely freaking that I am going to really lose it - but I am getting a bit OCD about stuff - rosters, lists, pros & cons etc to try and make sure at least any decisions actions are planned and not based on an emotional explosion ...

TF yeah I can honestly say the storm was a bit of a disappointment for many I know however I am more worried about the fact the media keep talking up these events and now when a big one does come nobody is going to take it seriously :-(
As for the nibbles and telly I highly recommend doing something while you watch like knitting etc - as to the mindset we all have those ups and downs and I know you will power through xx

Krystlelou - WOOHOO Go You - Lordy your the girl I watch and say "one day that will be me " :-)

really dissappointed in the storm cos i thought even though we were on the softer side of it, we were meant to get at least two days of rain...........we didnt get a drop, nada none.... :( so that was a little gutting but indeed it is great for the country that it lessoned and there was no major damage or people hurt, so blessings be. :)

ive had a good week in the pool, but the last couple of days i ate silly stuff, chippies dip etc, and i sat on the couch soooooooo long watching movies etc. i feel bad because i felt bad while i was eating the crap but didnt have the mental strength to stop myself, so yeah a little bit of self sabatoge going on there, im aware of it, so hopefully i will strengthen where i need to and get the excercise going to combat it.

Kristylou: well done on getting up the mount in 28 minutes thats fantastic news well done :)

Feels awesome to tick of goals and its really encouraging seeing other people succeeding

I'm really glad we didn't get the worst of that cyclone. I was starting to get cabin fever. Thankfully the weather cleared this afternoon in the Mount. I have to share something - I ticked off one of my goals today, getting up the mount in under 30 minutes, I actually did it in 28!

How did you guys fare with the weather today? Did you have a good weekend?

A few tree limbs etc down so far but not as bad as predicted - well here anyway - haven't had a chance to check on the rest of the country yet - I think it's meant to affect the Bay of Plenty till tonight though so am not planning anything major :-)

TF - yep they are the ones - not exactly DVD quality productions lol but they are FREE and very effective - youtube is also another option fof free variety :-)

I have just been working on my headspace the last couple of days as my body has thrown a hissy fit and I am up 5kgs in 2 weeks of pretty healthy living, however no sleep, fluid retention, mouth ulcers and based on the excessive acne breakout guessing hormones are playing hardball too :-(

so I have gone over all the good bits and all the bad bits and have been creating my next plan of attack :-) I have made a 12 day meal plan, day 13 will be a "free" day you may ask why a 13 day rotation - well I plan on putting hubby and miss 15 on the same plan for family meals and didn't want the whole "Monday is chicken kebabs, Tuesday is fish" thing happening as I hate that and think they would too.
I've made sure every day is under my calorie limit and have a bit of leeway for change in cooking technique/dressing etc - of course Miss 15 and hubby will be able to have extras :-)

As to exercise I seem to be breaking a few rules of people I really respect (Jillian Michaels being one of them) so I have adjusted my regime to give my body more variety but also not burn quite so many calories a day as I apparently was above what I should be - funnily enough I was proudly trying to keep burning more each week lol - so now I make sure there is a mix of activities and no two days in a row are the same

Sleep - mmm well the SP Sleep Challenge seems to have failed for me other than pointing out I understand what I am meant to do and how it is meant to work but alas it isn't so Monday and Thursdays I now sleep solo in another room so I don't burn out totally - in that room I am averaging about 4-5hrs a night in my marriage bed it is 0-2hours a night :-( I am hoping to work on building up both so the 5 hrs becomes my minimum

Blessings to you all - Keep Safe
Deb

hi everyone,

Take care over the weekend i think all you guys are in a more vunerable part of the country than i am, as im on the west coast and will only get the lighter side of lusi. so i hope you all are ok and im thinking of you all.

deb i will check out the videos are they in the articles and videos section next to the community link, im a shocker i havent even gone through half of what spark offers us. so i will check them out since you are enjoying it so much, and it will be good for variety, cos sometimes i get bored to quickly and loose momentum.

:) stay safe

Baring power cuts check out some of the SP workout videos - this is my first week using them and I have found them cool as they need very little in the way of equipment if any and are different exercises than I would normally do so mix it up a bit - the other thing I like is some are only about 10mins or so so you can do a couple of different ones during the course of the day or chuck them together for a really good session :-)


Not sure if you have any exercise machines/equipment? But if not I recommend you invest in a couple of cheapies like a band (very versatile) and maybe a swissball - these are pretty cheap too :-)

Hi everyone,
How's everyone doing?
I'm very excited to go see the final Black Sticks game tonight. I now just have to figure out an exercise plan for the weekend that suits cyclone weather. Even getting to the gym could be trouble. Any ideas?

Good morning everyone :-)

Yes it is another beautiful sunny day.....
But Cyclone 'Lusi' is still heading towards us in NZ on Friday sometime for the weekend.
So today it is time to stock up on.... fresh water, make sure things are tied down... and check all batteries are all charged up...
Civil Defence are putting out warnings and letting people know what to do during the cyclone.

So everyone take care over this upcoming weekend.

oh no TF - that really sucks :-( hope we are both about to head into our next upswing as I am terrified this is just the start of my seasonal slump (3 years in a row now March to May have proved to be my worst times)

I have cut and paste your recipe into an email and printed it :-) look forward to trying it

Glad to have you onboard for the challenge :-)

Now for an update - sleep mmmm less than an hour last night or the night before :-( but had a good 5-6hrs on Thursday night by sleeping in the spare room - so think I will use the spare bed at least once a week - especially as hubby refuses to try and help me at all - insists on keeping drapes open, windows open, won't let me play music during the night, won't try any of the snoring stop treatments etc ... and if it turns out even at the end of this challenge doing everything I can I still only really sleep in the spare room I guess I'll make it more permanent
I started C25K last week with a good start but not sure how I am black and blue from calf to ankle as of Friday afternoon on one leg and it hurts enough to put me off trying to do much - funny thing is I have no idea how it happened - can we bruise ourselves just from the impact of jogging??

Westchick - love ya ta bits and always love a hug :-) hope you have been making the most of the good weather and getting in the photos

Krystle - I'm sure you got up the Mount a few times at the end of last week - now the heat has dropped a couple of degrees it makes it a little easier to exercise too - I haven't done my Mount walk for a while park at Tay St park and walk up waterfront round the mount and then back along the boardwalk/road - as I have been focusing on options closer to home but I hope to get over there at least a few more times before wind and rain become standard

Hope everyone else is well and happy xx

hi guys,

thanks for not giving up on us deb, i agree that ive been slack over this past week, it must be something in the air cos my fibro is causing alot of internal conflict at the moment too, i really hate this disease, its never blimmin ending, you think you finally get on top of things and feeling in control and BANG it comes up and bites you in the butt again. so yeah ive been struggling a little. also with not being in the pool for 3 weeks because of my holiday and then the healing of the tattoo, so that didnt help at all.

Today though i was in the pool and it was wonderful, it was hard work and i couldnt do at all the amount of work i used to do in their, but it was refreshing and i felt positive that i was able to go and move my body without too much pain and anguish in my head subsided while in there so its a start and i hope to continue on.

Deb as promised this is the recipie for the Spinach Potatoe Flan it was so delicious and even my boys and richard loved it, so it will appear on the menu often i think - at least 1 a week or once a fortnight. as i like alot of variety or i get bored of good food and go to the rubbish easy fix stuff. so yeah im trying to find different ways to make all the good food excitting and into different type of meals.

500g small potatoes unpeeled and cut into 1cm pieces
80ml 1/3cup water
6 eggs
2/3 cup of milk
ground black pepper
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large brown onion cut into thin wedges
2 gloves garlic- crushed
50g baby spinach
100g reduced-fat feta finely choped

Put potato and water in a microwave bowl cover and cook high for 6 minutes or until tender Drain and set aside.
Put eggs and milk in a large jug season with pepper whisk well to combine and set aside.
Heat oil in a medium pan add onion and garlic and cook stirring for 5 minutes add spinach and toss for 1-2 minutes or until it starts to wilt. Add potato and stir to combine
Pour egg mixture over the vegetable mixture and sprinkle over the feta.
Put in oven and cook for 20 minutes on 160 or until feta is slightly browning.

i had it with a side dish of toss greens and cucumber with balsamic vingager over it.

hope you all try it, its easy to do and delicious and very low calories. on the weight watchers scales it was only 6 points in total for a healthy slice of it.

hope all is well and lets hope for a great week ahead. i will go check out the challenge deb. :)
hang in there buddy. :)

:-( no sleep since Thursday - so exhausted and grumpy - have started suffering with fibro, arguing with people and making silly mistakes ... no idea what to do as I keep trying things with no luck, joined the official SP Sleep Challenge and following all the tips and zilch so tomorrow being pay day am ordering me some melatonin tablets as they are being recommended to me by quite a few people ... however all the other sleep herbals have had no effect so I am too scared to get optimistic on this one ... oh aren't I a little ray of sunshine

In other news ... nup can't think of anything positive so that's all from me today - sorry

Thats great news ladies :) well done and keep up the awesome work.

ive had a great weekend, catching up with a mate that we havent seen in a long time and enjoyed a wonderful night, with healthy bbq and a few bailey's, i tried it just with ice instead of milk so it wasnt so many calories, and yummmmmmm it was good. and i didnt feel bloated. so it was good ------ or bad im not sure, hee hee. :)

its my rest day today and im actually looking forward to tomorrow to do my excercise and yay i get to go back into the pool after the week off because of the tattoo. :)

will enjoy the rest of the day first hee hee :)

Hey guys, hope your weekend is going great.

I'm really starting to get into this exercise thing now. I decided to go for a walk to the base of the Mount and then be back in time for the start of the rugby. So, I got to the bottom of the Mount and I thought maybe I could go up to the water tank and back. I get to the water tank and I thought I may as well keep going. So I did and boy was it worth it. Seeing the sun going down was absolutely amazing tonight and I still got home in time to see most of the second half of the rugby (Go the Chiefs!).

Thanks ladies I will look into both of those :-)

Got less than 4 hours last night ten woke up and that was it no going back to sleep for me :-(

On a positive I have decided to do a THIRTY DAYS OF SUPERFOODS - you know all those foods that are meant to be great for us that we probably don't eat enough of? I am going to up the level of superfoods in my daily life - this morning I had half a grapefruit and half an orange before my breakfast shake - the grapefruit is meant to help manage cortisol, citrus is a major super food and also good Vit C :-)

I must say I have been having trouble getting to sleep at night (nice example is right now, wide awake at 11:30) my biggest weakness is caffeine. I know that I sleep a lot better when I've had none.

You could try lavender balm. You put a little of it under your nose to make you sleepy. Maybe try make a relax/sleep playlist - Brooke Fraser works a charm. My fail safe is a CD I knicked off my mum. It's from the 90's and has Enya etc on it. It's a little up tempo at the start and then slows down and I'm asleep by the end of the disk.

i brought the gabriel method book last year, have you heard of him, i loved his book and in it you get to download his sleeping mp3 thing, you listen to it and i tell you. your asleep before it finishes and even though you wake up and put the headphones away to the floor etc, you go back to sleep instantly and its wonderful, im like you deb i used to only get 4 hours sleep a night and it was always broken up, now im sleeping at least 6-7 hours a night, it took probably 2 weeks to start sleeping better and the 4 hour broken turned into 4 hours straight and it just got better and better and now im sleeping almost like a "normal" person hahahahaha. (oh yeah and now i dont even listen to the mp3 recording every night sometimes its only when im restless or hyped up before i go to bed. i really thinks its worth the investment. $40.00 for the book and the download comes with it along with other great resources, i really believe in this guy and he turned alot around for me. So i hope that is helpful :)

it is hard also at the moment fiona with this heat.... i havent been sleeping the best over the last 3 weeks but i know its just the heat. you are doing the right thing fiona, as you have to listen to your body and rest when it needs it and do little steps until you can regain your full vibrancy again. :)

i had a ok day today, i went to councelling this morning and that was really good, ive decided to go to councelling to help me put myself as the priority in my life, as im not very good at looking after myself, so i decided that in order for me to beat my demons and self sabatage im going to talk to a professional and she is amazing, she isnt focused on the weight, she is focusing on me regaining self worth and looking after me :0 and im finding it really helpful.

enjoy your day ladies and i will now go and check out the challenges :) thanks deb

Hi Fiona - oh dear - hope they crack the cause for you soon :-( not to sound like an informercial and certainly not to put you off getting to the bottom of the problem but in the meantime what are you doing to try to give yourself a boost? I take Spirulina Blue from lifestream and it works better than all the prescribed meds I took before - maybe look into something like that ? I was put on to it as it has great reviews by CF sufferers and now take 9 tablets a day - if I miss any more than two days (like while I was away) boy I notice it

TF - love the new Tattoo - glad I didn't have to wait too long for the pic ;-)

Challenge is posted in the games/challenges section of Team Kiwi - if you don't have a pedometer substitute in a 5km walk :-)

Hi
I know missing again.
I am really not coping with this tiredness. I have been back to the doctor three times and still he is just doing tests and doesn't know what is causing it.
I just have to force myself to go for a walk and get things done and have 7-8 hours sleep at night and then two during the day every second day. Been thinking of you though and just letting you know I will be here as much as possible

Love your new pic Ros

Hi everyone,

Back in NZ and enjoying Masterton's sunny weather. Did the medical checks and all is well I have even been able to come of some of my Blood Pressure medication, so I am happy.

I had several days at Castlepoint last week with my 2 sisters, 2 of my nieces and my Mum. It was a great time away and weather was perfect. I got in some lovely walks, went fishing but nothing was biting.

The time is going way too quick but I am loving it.

hi everyone,

im back from holiday so im all relaxed and geared up to start the routine backup again. I didnt jump the sky tower as i was 1 kilo short,,,,,,,,i know 1 blimming kilo, but hey im all good about it all because i still lost 13kg all up since i started and im happy with that, so i went and got a tattoo done for my reward. i will jump of the sky tower on my 2nd milestone of reaching double figures so when i get down to 99kg i will go to auckland then and do it :)

im still interested in the challenges deb, it was just that i was away and didnt even come anywhere near a computer. hope everyone is good :)
