... and I DON'T like it! My parents are visiting. Which I've mentioned. And we've been travelling. Which I've mentioned. What I haven't mentioned is that my mum is now majorly obese - after growing up with a skinny mom, this is HARD t... Read more
Away for a few days

So, not only have I been MIA for the past week or so, I'm going to be even more so for the next two or three weeks as my parents' visit winds to a close. :( It's good and bad - I keep rediscovering that I'm NOT the nice obedient, conformist... Read more

My parents are in town. I've been at my brother's place for the past 4 days. I've had ONE long walk, a couple of short ones, and a bunch of not-very-active playing-with-the-kids. And eaten a LOT ... very frequent meals, not really SMALL meals ei... Read more
Going to try to keep on track until August 20th ...

My parents are in town - which means wonderful home-cooked meals, and a lot of eating out. I'm going to try to keep on track, but it's going to be TOUGH - I already have food-in-mouth-itis, but it's even easier to gorge when Mum's doing the cook... Read more
But I'm feeling much better now!

I sulked ALL day yesterday. It felt good, so there! :) And today, I'm in a much happier mood. It helps that when I got to the gym and got on the treadmill, I was able to jog at 4.8 mph for 20 minutes without holding on. Okay, so the incline... Read more
It's a love-hate relationship!

I love getting on the scales. I hate what they say. At least, most of the time. They're this nasty reminder that it's NOT just in the mirror! (In my mind, I'm this svelte goddess-looking gal, you know!) Oh, well. I hereby refuse to... Read more
Changing the way I eat
Tuesday, July 15, 2008 13 comments
I've never really thought about this before, but now that I do, I realise that _all_ the weight I've gained has happened since I moved to North America. That's 80+ pounds. A whole small-boned, petite person worth of weight. And when I say weight... Read more
Why I don't drink
Saturday, July 12, 2008 6 comments
I was at dinner at a friend's place tonight - mostly to say hello to her parents, whom I haven't seen in about 20 years - boy, it's been a long time. Well, one thing they do back home at parties is drink. Not wine, either, but whisky or rum... Read more
Done my first 5k
Friday, July 11, 2008 9 comments
Hmm. Yesterday was a rest day, so I didn't actually do my "2 15-minute runs with a 1-minute walk break" thing at all. Did hula hoop. My time/number-of-twirls is getting WORSE, not better! Maybe I need to review the instruction videos on YouTube ... Read more
Taking a rest day ...

Those were the action-plan steps to get to goal. How did I do yesterday? Great! I'm still working on the 15-minute-non-stop intervals, but other than that, I hit _every_ one of those action steps. My legs are slightly stiff after doing 5k 2... Read more
SMARTER goals today!
Wednesday, July 09, 2008 5 comments
As I said, here's the mini-goal action plan: - continue drinking at least 13 glasses of water each day - Work out intensely 2 times a week (no more than 60 minutes) - Get at least 40 minutes of moderate cardio 5 times a week (that inclu... Read more
S.M.A.R.T. Goals - _my_ goals revisited
Tuesday, July 08, 2008 8 comments
Today I was reviewing the art of goal-setting for a seminar I'm planning. And it struck me that I should be applying some of those techniques to the weight issue as well (I tend to treat my health as something I can always count upon) ... G... Read more
Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you BEEN?
Monday, July 07, 2008 4 comments
Where, indeed? Well, I took an unexpected break from the "normal routine" - Saturday started off _very_ well, with a great workout at the gym, and a healthy breakfast. And plans to be on guard the rest of the weekend - and then I got lured by a ... Read more
Nothing much to say!

Today was a GREAT day. Got to the gym in the morning, did intervals on the treadmill, followed by some time on the elliptical. Sweated buckets. Decided that maybe I was trying too hard on my hoop - decided to do a hundred twirls each "break... Read more
It's out of my system ...

Finally. :) That bout of "down" lasted a fair bit longer than normal - and it's only now that the sun is actually hitting my eyes through the window that I'm realising what a waste of a day _that_ was. Well, make it two days. And the funnie... Read more
