I had started a blog earlier today...one of those deep thinking ones about what's been going on with my life lately, my health, the decisions I'm facing, and I came back to finish it this evening. I typed a bunch more....didn't copy it (just in ... Read more

So...my challenge on SparkCoach is to plan 'tomorrow's' meals. Since it's only 4:30am, I guess I can do today's instead. I think it's fairly obvious that we'll be having Christmas dinner today..LOL Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, roast potato... Read more
A New Perspective

For the last 10 years, I've watched as my mum's health has deteriorated. Mostly it's her physical strength, and she's had one knee replacement. She needs one on the other knee now, but has been putting it off. She has virtually no strength left ... Read more
Day 1 Was a Success!
Sunday, March 18, 2012      7 comments

I decided that I'd give y'all's suggestions about just changing one thing at a time a chance. Yesterday was the annual Women's Wellness Conference, and my goal for yesterday was to get in 10 minutes of exercise, and drink at least 8 cups of wate... Read more

So here I am, three months after the last blog entry, and what's changed in my life? Ummm...not a blessed thing! Another 5% challenge came and went, and my weight didn't budge. Of course, I didn't exercise much at all, didn't eat right, and blam... Read more

.....and as usual, I'm not ready! It's not like I didn't know the holiday would roll around again, so I can only blame it all on disorganization and procrastination (my two favourite culprits). I've actually got most of the presents bought for t... Read more

Many, MANY moons ago when I was 11, we lived in Dawson Creek, BC. Our school was having a track meet, and even though I really didn't like running all that much, I found myself entered in the 400 yard race. Once around the track. To top it off, ... Read more

There I was...happily enjoying my four days off. I wasn't bothering anyone...spent some time at City Hall helping to harvest vermicompost, some time at a school checking out their vermicompost bin and answering questions, and then....Tuesday cam... Read more

Well...here it is almost 10pm again! After working 10 days straight, I'm so knackered it's not even funny. Yes, I did manage to get in some exercise...not as much as I would have liked, but most of it was gardening - one of my favourite ways to ... Read more

When Will I Ever Learn??
Saturday, April 23, 2011      9 comments

I have known since I was about 17 that I have a weight problem. That's almost 35 years. I lost a bit of weight before I got married (at almost 20), then started putting it on again with my first pregnancy. I've never really looked back again. Fo... Read more

I've spent the last 16 days dogsitting. My good friend is off on a Carribean cruise with her hubby and some other family members, and I'm here in cold, snowy, icy Edmonton looking after her 9 dogs, and my own two. She won't be back for another 9... Read more
