Back with a Backlash?
Saturday, April 10, 2010      3 comments

I've landed. I'm tired. I'm content. I'll start logging my food and fitness again tomorrow. I'm nervous about what these 10 days of vacation, not logging and not making the healthiest of choices have done to my body. It has not been disastr... Read more
Off on a "Real" Vacation
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      4 comments

Packing always takes longer than I think. It's almost 1.30 am and I'm finally at a point where I feel I have an overview and can estimate how much time I need in the morning. I'll get about 2 1/2 hours of sleep tonight... Tomorrow morning, ... Read more
Summer Wardrobe Woes
Tuesday, March 30, 2010      3 comments

I'm travelling to a warmer climate on Thursday, so today I brought out my summer clothes from hibernation. Although I didn't use to weigh myself, I knew I'd gained since last time I wore them in November. But then I have lost almost 4 kilos (8 l... Read more

I am so pleased with my Monday! Today was the first of the three vacation days that I am spending at home. I made lots of plans ahead of time, including four appointments and a plan to eat lunch out. However, before I got started, I de... Read more
It's All Progress!
Sunday, March 28, 2010      5 comments

I did it! I'm back home after a total of about 9 hours alone in the car this weekend, but I stuck to my plan (almost) to the letter, and I was strengthened by all the preparations I had made and the sense on commitment I felt from having told ev... Read more

Alright! I'm logged out of work, filled my water bottle, packed my snacks, brewed my tea, selected some CDs and ready to go! ... Read more

The other day, I identified the three major challenges for my upcoming vacation to be the planned road trip by myself, the no-plans days at home and the long waits at airports. I said I'd come up with some strategies, and I have. So this is what... Read more

I was browsing through articles and SparkPages earlier today and came across BEMORESTUBBORN's story. What a transformation! Wow, just WOW! I hope healthier habits will take a few years off, in addition to weight, for me too! However, what r... Read more
Two Weeks Down - a Lifetime to Go
Saturday, March 20, 2010      2 comments

The first week here, I logged what I ate and how I moved, making very little conscious effort to make any changes. Surprisingly, it wasn't bad at all, apart from that one party that went a little overboard food-wise. The 0.3 kg weight loss was i... Read more
Great Minds Think Alike

Yesterday, I got an email from my sister. She had started a blog about working on improving her health and getting in better shape and she invited me to read it and support her. Neither of us had talked to the other about our thoughts and reachi... Read more
Backfiring Sparks
Sunday, March 14, 2010      3 comments

From repeated periods of not setting an alarm, I have discovered that my body natuarally takes 7 hours of sleep - almost on the dot - to wake up rested, so that is what I always aim for. I don't always manage, but I would say I normally do get t... Read more
bonbons and belly
Saturday, March 13, 2010      1 comments

My jeans were growing less and less comfortable as the night progressed and the chips level in the bowl went down. Logic knew the two stood in direct correlation with each other. But the discomfort was not enough to keep my hand from doing its c... Read more
Good Choices
Thursday, March 11, 2010      1 comments

Quite a challenging day I must say. We had a seminar at work, which came with its apparently requisite abundance of pastries, candies, cookies and pre-ordered lunch. Skipping the morning croissants wasn't very difficult as sweet foods don't... Read more
