I went to my Doctor yesterday to get an 'all clear' to start jogging again. I was given the 'all clear' with a very stern warning: you must keep on strength training. If you want to keep jogging, you must balance it with the strength training or... Read more

And I feel euphoric!! Endorphins bouncing all over the place!! I had forgotten the utter joy I feel when listening to my favourite music and running outside. I only jogged twenty minutes as this was what the doctor recommended for me. After a... Read more

I've been reading blogs that have been reviewing the month of October and the ups and downs people have been through. So, of course, I began thinking about what the month was like for me. October was my second month in the programme, and I would... Read more

This is in honour of all those small moments (and the mantra in my head that says -' is this a treat, or a regular part of my diet now?' and 'somebody busier than me is exercising right now'): When I ate all my veggies, but shared half the ... Read more

Before church on Sunday morning I found myself trying on practically every dress in my cupboard - just to see what it looked like. I felt so trim in all my clothes, so right, so happy. But on Saturday night I was fighting a winning battl... Read more

What a strange weekend....and beginning of the week. So many activities seem to be centred around food! I went shopping with a friend of mine this weekend and the trip involved not one, but two stops at a coffee shop, and walking into a mul... Read more

On Wednesday night I suggested to my husband that we have dinner this Friday at our local Indian restaurant. His immediate reaction was 'Won't that be expensive? Expensive for your calories, I mean?' (He's really getting into this calorie counti... Read more

It was a big moment this morning in our bathroom. So big, that my husband had to double check the scale for me. (I'm short sighted and we have a manual scale, and I struggle to read the lines in between the numbers!) But, after his assurances, I... Read more

As I was thinking about this blog and what to call it, I began to realized that these must be the lifestyle changes that people are talking about. And then I began wondering if I will be able to maintain these changes long term. Usually we eat... Read more

The doctor's surgery that I visit has a very high turnover of doctors. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen the same doctor twice! (I don't go very often). Yesterday the doctor who was seeing me also happened to be doing her Masters degree in... Read more

One month ago today, after much umming and aahing I decided to give sparkpeople a try. I thought what's the worst that could happen? Well, I'm now 4kg (about 8 pounds) lighter and I've lost about 3 inches worth around my waist and thighs. And ... Read more
Holding on for the apple pie!
Monday, October 03, 2011 2 comments
My husband bought apple pie a few days ago, but we have not been able to eat it yet because every time it gets to the evening I've used up my calories! So, today I planned it. Now I'm sitting waiting for my husband to get home and staying as far... Read more
Three weeks - really?

The most interesting part of this week is how reflective I have become over my life, and whether I'm happy with it. It's funny how a decision to take care of my health, has now got me thinking about the rest of my life too. The last two days ... Read more
