This mornings' weigh-in was an improvement from earlier this week. 144.9!! I'm below my panic point. Today we went kayaking and I didn't have much control over what was for lunch... so I'll see the damage on Monday. (with pics!)... Read more

On Tuesday we had left over shrimp and although I thought the plate would be similar to the previous shrimp lunch we had , it turned out a quite different. DH would have liked some sauce with the rice, he thought it was a bit dry but I liked it ... Read more

Yesterday I made baked fish, cauliflower and mashed potatoes with a side salad for lunch. DH had white potatoes, I had the sweet potatoes. The fish was a white fish (like tilapia maybe?), I covered it with spices, tzatziki (yoghurt) and some sal... Read more

Yesterday I grilled shrimp for our lunch in my new fabulous grill pan. It's a lot of work cleaning them but so rewarding to see them all yummy in the pan. A kilo is a lot and we will have at least 2 more meals out of it. ... Read more

Yesterday was the bazaar. It wasn't quite what I expected but still a lot of fun. I had hoped there would be decorations etc so I could make a start on decorating the house. I didn't bring anything south with me as there were more important thin... Read more

After having my whinge yesterday I picked myself up and got with the program and the whole day went fairly well. I did get my 6 glasses of water in and even remembered my supplements, even if hours late.. We had to go to Guaymas in the morning... Read more
Feeling discouraged

The last few days have been hard eating-wise and despite my good plans at the beginning of the week, I feel like I failed miserably :( Why is it so hard to maintain and even harder to lose weight here? It seems so much easier in Colorado. I mi... Read more

I can't believe it is December already! (I think I said that last month about November...) We have been back south for over a month and life is settling down into a routine of sorts. I'm back in the office and after being away for a month it... Read more
November reflections

This month has been a rollercoaster... We have had a much busier social life and needless to say it did affect my weight... I started the month at 144.2, this morning I was 145.6 and most of the month I have been bopping between 144.5 and 146.... Read more

Now my writing is done (for a while?) I'm catching up on my reading. The next book for the book club is "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. It's all about eating only what has been produced locally and she also grows her own... Read more

Since we got here about 4 weeks ago we have had luke warm water at best. More so during the day when the house is warm and the concrete wall warm up the pipes and definitely not so much in the morning, especially the last week with nigh time tem... Read more
Kayaking and a remote village - pics
Saturday, November 20, 2010      5 comments

Today we drove 1-1/2 hours north of San Carlos to a tiny village El Colorado - yep, we're back to Colorado :) It's called that because of the vivid red rocks. It was a little overcast and the sea was a lot rougher than I had hoped for. Anyw... Read more

Yesterday was the first book sale of the season. I was there right on time, bags and donation ready. Most of the books that were sorted were from last year and there were bags and bags of unsorted new donations. I restrained myself and picked up... Read more
