Here I am, trying to get back on track after a bit of an absence. The good news is - I only gained 2 pounds back. But I want to go back to losing. It's been a bit of a tough adjustment eating-wise. My husband is here (finally!), and while that m... Read more

Christmas is over, Boxing Day is almost done. I'll be on holidays for another week, but things should be more reasonable from here on in. Emotionally, it was a rough Christmas. I'm finding it harder and harder to deal with the fact that I h... Read more

It's been a rough week at work - far too much to do, once again. I've brought work home, which I've been trying not to do. But running a charity, you can't really argue with funding deadlines. I'm out of sorts today, and have been for much ... Read more

I was thinking at the beginning of the week that my entry would be 'I miss you', or something along those lines. But I waited to write it, and while I still miss the person in question, we're finally moving towards being reunited. I'm marri... Read more

Obviously I'm still pretty slow to come to the idea of blogging - yay goal setting to give me some motivation to get on here. But my main reason for staying away this week has been that so much of my energy has been taken up by managing con... Read more
