Firstly I have to say a massive thank you to those of you who messaged me regarding my recent post about my illness. I thought things were getting better, but this week I have been on the floor again; I just can't stay awake for any length ... Read more

I am taking part in the 5% challenge once again. I didn't complete the last one - in fact I drifted away part way through it because I just couldn't muster up the will to sign onto the computer at all. I have been allocated a different t... Read more

So I have been AWOL again. It seems most of by blog entries seem to be explaining absences, but here we go. I have talked before about how I suffer seasonal depression. For the most part I have developed coping mechanisms that allow me to h... Read more

Ordinarily I don't do showing off, but I have had a really productive afternoon making some earrings and thought I'd share them. My first job was to replicate a pair I made for my daughter as she was allergic to the metal on the original pa... Read more
To the Limit and Beyond
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      2 comments

I have been struck today with an almost overwhelming need to do something huge - to really push myself to my absolute physical limit. I started using a new workout app this morning. Only a 5min cardio hit but it really got me huffing and pa... Read more

Yup, I have signed up again! Happily I am back in my old team - a fabulous bunch of motivators and inspirations. Part of the preparation was to replace my scale batteries (Yup, I hadn't been on the scales in that long - a massive pat o... Read more

My Spark Journey

Life has a nasty habit of getting in the way of self-improvement and this year it has certainly pushed everything possible at me. That said, as I mark my 9th Sparkiversary in a few days, I feel this is a great time to focus on all the things I H... Read more

Weekly Summing Up II
Saturday, February 15, 2014      2 comments

WEIGHT: I DID IT!!! 5% Goal reached. I am at 157 which I am really pleased with. Ideally I wanted to lose at least 3lbs to hold any hope of reaching my birthday 145, but realistically I was never going to get that with the busy week I have had... Read more
Weekly Summing Up

I need to take stock and since I am in something of a habit of measuring up on a Friday - and Fridays seem to be shaping up as my "me" day, giving me the time to sit and think... so it makes sense to TRY (at least) to make a weekly sum-up post o... Read more

Just flying by to let you all know I am still here. February is already panning out to be supremely busy for me... but I kind of knew it would be! Baby started Sea Cadets a few weeks ago and has been constantly bombarding me since the first... Read more

I have had a really busy week, yet don't actually feel I have acheived anything! I had a visit with my daughter's counsellor regarding the suggested treatment for her OCD. Strangely (or not, I guess) they are ignoring the OCD itself and wor... Read more

Plan-wise, things are going great at the moment. I am having a small issue, however. Looking back through my postings for this week I have realised I am slipping back into some bad habits. Since my initial bout of Sparking, I had a far... Read more
