Miscellaneous Rambling... (aka I'm not feeling organized today)
Sunday, January 30, 2011      2 comments

I finally saw a wedge tailed eagle. I'd heard there was a pair living on the hill near our house. It was very high up, circling for prey. Too bad I didn't have my camera! They're big enough to take a kangaroo, I've read. I admit I looked up ... Read more
A nice walk
Monday, November 08, 2010      1 comments

I had a nice walk this morning. The drought has partially lifted here. It's been raining almost every day, so there's lots of bright green grass. I saw small bunches of roos here and there. Several joeys leaned out of their pouches munching o... Read more
An experiment

I've tried an experiment for the last few days. I decided to stop doing nutrition tracking to see what happened. Unfortunately, I reverted right back to terrible eating habits. I've been eating way too much, and eating sweets again. I seem t... Read more

Ok, I'm trying to post a photo of some roos I saw this morning. Here she is with her joey. This photo shows the path I walk and run on. The kangaroos are very tame.... Read more
The land of rainbows
Saturday, September 04, 2010      3 comments

The blog title sounds like a cheesy 80s pop song. I've seen more rainbows in the 2 years I've lived in Australia than during the whole rest of my life. I went running today. It was drizzling and the sun was so bright I needed my sunglasses, a... Read more
Already rethinking things ...

With the rather stunning news that I may have whooping cough, I need to redo my fitness goals. The weird thing about this illness is that I feel fine except when i'm coughing so hard I can barely breathe. It's also called the 100 day cough. He... Read more
Goals for September
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

August went well, even though I was sick for two solid weeks. I'm still not completely better. I missed two weeks of of running. Today was my last week 3 run of the c25k program. Swimming twice a week doesn't fit well into my schedule so I'... Read more

This morning

The sky was overcast and the everything was dim in the dawn light. Wisps of fog floated over the valley, hiding the far hills. I saw magpies chasing each other in and out of the trees. The kangaroos were perfectly camouflaged against the bro... Read more
A beautiful morning
Thursday, July 15, 2010      1 comments

I went for a walk this morning again. The sky was pink and there was ice over the water in the ditch next to the path. The frogs we heard yesterday were quiet. The grass sparkled with a heavy frost, and I had to jog to keep warm. It reminded... Read more
Half way there!

I'm half way to my goal weight. And one more pound and I'll officially leave the obese zone. (Despite my doctor's measurement a few weeks ago, which was a bit off.) Any way, I'm motivated to keep going. I'm also feeling much more fit, and I ... Read more

Being obese

The doctor measured my weight and height yesterday. I was wearing my hiking boots, so I came out about a cm taller than normal... and he said my BMI was 29.8! I was ecstatic. I didn't realize how much I hate being labelled obese. Really I ... Read more
