I just want balance
Wednesday, February 13, 2013      5 comments

So for the past week or so I haven't logged my food, tracked calories or weighed myself. It started off bc I yet again went overboard and found the pressure of facing up to my actions very strong. Then I overdid it again just to cope with... Read more
Why is it so hard being a mama?
Tuesday, February 05, 2013      14 comments

I guess I'm still in the thick of it. I know different stages of parenthood have their issues but right now what with constant chaos, demands, queries (why? Why are days short in winter? What can I have to eat? What is winter? Can we buy donut... Read more
Sleep is a nutrient like food and water
Tuesday, February 05, 2013      4 comments

...and if I deprive myself of sleep I will have to deal with the consequences of a body lacking in that nutrient. Yes, I have four young kids who still wake me up most nights but I can get to bed earlier to minimise the impact of those disturb... Read more

How do I use my elliptical???
Monday, February 04, 2013      1 comments

The pre-set programs aren't much help. There's only 8 of them anyway. Needless to say the manual isn't helpful! I can't see where to change the incline...just the 'brake' (which I guess is the resistance?) It's a Kettler Rivo. Can any... Read more
Elliptical, Pilates and successful meal planning
Friday, February 01, 2013      1 comments

Well, the elliptical machine is here! Yippee! We haven't assembled it yet and need to move some stuff first so that'll be tomorrow's job. I've recently discovered Pilates and I am amazed by how effective (and difficult at times!) it is! My bod... Read more
Imagine what your ideal healthy person would live like, and make steps towards becoming that person.
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      2 comments

...that's what another Sparkmember told me and I'm going to aim for that attitude rather than obsess over weightloss/scales/etc. I would simply add: Imagine what your ideal healthy person would live like, and RIGHT NOW eat, move and live li... Read more life

Depression. Even though I've been on ADs for months now, some days like today I feel absolutely crushed. I feel that I've always been depressed and always will be. At the moment, there are a few things in my life that I'm not sure I actual... Read more
OT: Can anyone help with Bible related query pls?
Wednesday, January 23, 2013      6 comments

Wasn't sure where to post this so figured I'd blog my question instead! I've been a committed Christian for about 20 yrs. I don't come from a Christian family. I was raised in an academic family where the point was to dissect every wor... Read more
Up 4lbs this week
Sunday, January 20, 2013      4 comments

...and yes, I totally know why. I eat too much. I love baking. I eat what I bake. I'm stressed. Very stressed. Extremely stressed right now. Tbh, even the weeks that I did stay on course my weight just seems to go up one week... Read more
Clothes 'shopping' - disheartening
Saturday, January 19, 2013      1 comments

OK, so I didn't technically shop for clothes but I sewed some much needed, ahem, knickers/pants/briefs/whatever name they go by... Talk about a reality check. The fabric just went on and on and on... I'm a bit disheartened really...I've been... Read more
I did it: I had a break and now I'm back on track
Thursday, January 17, 2013      4 comments

I said I'd have a one day break and then get back to tracking and that's exactly what I did and I'm really proud of myself! At one stage I really thought I was going to chuck in the towel - I haven't lost much in the 16 weeks since I've been s... Read more
Today I decided to 'give up'...
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      5 comments

...but only just for today. I need to let go of stress at the moment and one of those was how I was constantly eating the wrong stuff this week. Obsessing over it hasn't helped - it's made it worse. So just for this afternoon, I decided to n... Read more
Yesterday something happened that was very, very scary.
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      10 comments

Today I'm finding it hard to put it behind me. I stayed up too late last night deliberately avoiding sleep as I was scared of being alone with my thoughts and fearing nightmares. So today - obviously - I feel tired and yesterday's even... Read more
Diet cliches
Saturday, January 12, 2013      3 comments

You know how they say use the 80/20 rule? Eat well 80% of the time. Well, the problem with that is that I can do really well for those 80% but I seem to really not do great on the 20% bit. A lot of those fitness/diet cliches don't wo... Read more
