Motivation and planning - and ditching excuses
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      5 comments

Definitely better than nothing

Four pounds gone this month. I’d have liked it to be more but my monthly weigh-ins are bearing fruit with less scale obsession and no getting discouraged when loss in one week is not much and I don’t bother to try. I’ve been trying the advice of... Read more

How can 10 minutes of exercise be a problem?
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      8 comments

Having re-ignited my membership of the 10 Minute Exercise Team this week on the advice of a friend here, I had a real fight with myself yesterday about my 10 minutes. Only 10 minutes!! Why so hard to start? I'm concentrating on strength exercis... Read more
Others can do it and finally I realise that I can too :-)

I've been doing quite well lately - with food and even with exercise - to some extent at least. I’ve read various blogs lately about not giving up – about starting over –about really going for success. What an inspiring lot Sparkers are! Yes w... Read more

So – 4 days in Barcelona working in 30 degrees C and over on occasions. I know some may envy me but I really hate being too hot and I felt bad all the time I was there – yeah – weedy I know but we Brits are not used to high temperatures and they... Read more
Some pounds lost - HOORAH!
Monday, June 25, 2012      5 comments

Well I’m surprised – amazed in fact – to find that I’ve lost 7 pounds since May 25th. I resolved on a new attempt to stop messing about here and take off the weight I’ve recently regained and then to plod on until I get to where I need to be. ... Read more
Change of attitude needed
Thursday, June 14, 2012      5 comments

I’ve been spending a lot of time doing various things in my flat recently – steam cleaning the oak floors and re-varnishing and also quite a bit of painting. Playing catch up, in fact, because I’ve neglected the flat of late due to renovating m... Read more
Satisfaction Factor

I’m terribly short of time today but just have to post something to say how amazed I am at my current efforts. For some time I’ve been processing all the changes I’ve been through and taking inspiration from other Sparkers principally to set up ... Read more
Jubilee Fun
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      3 comments

Well – the Jubilee fun was very hard work and quite wet here in Brighton. There were lots of street parties in the residential roads and other events in the streets. I took any interested students around the town. Most of them were happy... Read more

Good days
Monday, May 28, 2012      4 comments

So – the first weekend of my renewed efforts. A good few days of food and exercise and I spent a happy weekend on the beach setting up BBQs with my students (I find it really easy to enjoy barbecued fish or meat and salads without overdoing it)... Read more
Creeping back - rather shamefaced
Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

I’ve been absent for a lot longer than I intended although I have been logging in and tracking as much as I could – not that that saved me from regaining some of my hard lost pounds and I knew that I either had to start again or give up altogeth... Read more
