I’m doing an exercise from my Spark People stage three action steps. This is to write about one “trouble goal”. I had no trouble deciding on which one – the one that is hampering my progress constantly... sends me back three steps for ev... Read more

I’ve not blogged since my half marathon review which is nearly two weeks ago now. I haven’t felt like it since then. Motivationally, I’m in a state of unrest... I still have a little soreness and have delayed exercising beyond one swim since t... Read more
Seattle Half Marathon Blog! I did it! Woo hoo!
Monday, November 28, 2011      17 comments

We got up super early on Saturday to hopefully miss the line ups for crossing the border and I think it worked. We didn’t have to wait too long. We went to Denny’s for breakfast (OK, not the healthiest but we were loading up for our race!) and ... Read more

I’ve not blogged for a while and have been meaning to all week – but I found myself almost stuck for words... unheard of for someone like me. As a child I was always told I talked too much and I think I still do! Am I ready for the half ma... Read more

Thursday, November 17, 2011      5 comments

Well, here I am, lighter! At the end of week 1 (I started on my weigh in day which was convenient!) I was down 2.7lbs which is great. I’m down a little more today (total weight lost on Flat Belly diet in 8 nights = 3.6lbs). Woo hoo! So f... Read more
Flat Belly Diet Jump Start Review – 3lbs Down in 4 days!
Monday, November 14, 2011      4 comments

I thought it was 4lbs but it was only 3... but what am I saying – only 3lbs down in 4 days! That can’t be bad! This morning I was up a tiny bit, 100g (3.5oz) but that’s probably just because I ate more weight yesterday. I’m hoping that if I st... Read more
Day 3 Flat Belly Diet - down 4 lbs since Wednesday!
Saturday, November 12, 2011      7 comments

Day 3 Last night was OK... not great. I had a bit of back ache and didn’t want to take anything for it because I’m trying to clean up on this jump start diet. I also cooked Mark Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada soup (Spark Recipe) and it look... Read more
Day 2 Flat Belly Diet Jump Start - 1.1lbs down in a day?!? Could it really be this good?!?
Thursday, November 10, 2011      7 comments

The rest of day 1 was fairly uneventful and I didn’t manage to do all that I was hoping... well, any of it really. I had hoped to take my eldest to her circus skills class but because I had to eat – I had to cook so Mark took her instead. I’m a... Read more

Day one of the 4 day Jump Start to my Flat Belly Diet... I thought I would write this blog throughout the day so it can track how I’m feeling! Last night I was able to mix up the Sassy Water before bed. For interested Sparkers, the re... Read more
Who wants a Flat Belly?!?
Tuesday, November 08, 2011      12 comments

It’s now Tuesday of a short week, but then every week is short for me as I usually take Fridays off... so this week is a long one for me as it’s a 4 day week. I’m feeling tired as we started the week off by going to see the Cirque De Soleil sho... Read more

Instead of my usual personal complaints about my inability to stick with my diet, I thought I`d just write a general blog – taking the focus away from the scales for a while. Today it`s Wednesday – hump day! And my first 3 day week at work ... Read more

I look at the successes of some of my SP friends and feel so excited for them. They have lost so much weight since they started their journeys and look amazing – some of them started around the same time as me and yet, here I am... treading wat... Read more

Yesterday I got full marks for the Rodeo Challenge for BLC. I managed to eat right – tracking everything and fell within (although at the top end) my calorie range and also fats, proteins and carbs so gold star for me! Going back to Circ... Read more

Hello everyone, Well, it certainly has been a while since my last blog. I’m back at work now after my Australian trip and it’s good... nice and busy and I’m already half way through the day and not experiencing too much in the way of jet l... Read more
Crossing my fingers
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      7 comments

It’s a quiet day at work... so I thought I’d put my fingers to keys (as opposed to pen to paper) and write a blog. The weekend just gone was the 70s challenge weekend for BLC17. Overall I did OK for points, although my eating was not great.... Read more
