Well, it is! For me, anyway. I mean, isn't that what cooking is all about? You add chemical A to chemicals B, C, D and E, add some controlled heat for a specific time and voila - there's your resulting compound. Okay, in cooking it's a blend of ... Read more

I don't exactly know how I did it, but when I weighed in yesterday morning at the gym, I weighed 209.5 (yes, I did weigh in a few times, and some were as low as 208, some as high as 210 ... I'm picking the number I feel comfortable claiming). ... Read more
Sat around ... all day!

I was a slug today. Did nothing. Really. Yep. That's what I did. Nothing. Sat in a room all day. On a hard metal stackable chair. Not much chance for exercise, although I did skip one speaker and go wander the halls just to stretch my legs.... Read more

That's pretty much what I'm going to be doing for the next 3 days ... nothing much. I'll be in a seminar all three days, all day, every day. Sigh. Not exactly what I'd wanted to do for the weekend, but something I need to do anyway. I'm sti... Read more

I did get in my swim: I'd planned to swim a minimum of 10 laps, my target was 12 laps, and 15 would have been outrageous. Well, I did them ALL - I managed 16 laps. Yay. No, I didn't look anything like Ariel there, but hey, I can dream, can'... Read more

Picture this: you're in bed. Warm, cosy. And something is irritating you. Again. This has to be, what, the 1,000th morning in a ROW? Yep, you fell asleep reading - again - so the lights are still on. (Okay, it's an eco-friendly 20-watt fluoresc... Read more

Did the SP Class Team challenge yesterday - 5k jog, 10mile bike ride. The jog was pretty normal - huffing, puffing, speeding up, slowing down ... all normal, time was around the same as usual. Then I got on the stationary bike. Now, I've al... Read more

[Warning: Long, self-involved blog post. You might want to skip this one!] So, here's a better view of what I look like. No face again, sorry. :) But this is ALL over my desktop - I've TILED the darned desktop with this composite view.... Read more
Never, ever weigh-in on a Sunday NIGHT!
Sunday, August 31, 2008      3 comments

Sigh. So, today was pretty much out-of-control. I had GREAT intentions first thing in the morning - was going to do the challenge run and bike ride, had my meals all planned out. First, woke up late (that'll happen if you stay up watching m... Read more
Jumping in the pool
Saturday, August 30, 2008      3 comments

Yesterday, I'd planned to do the challenge (walk and bike) on one of my SparkTeams ... PLUS add in a timed swim. After all, I _do_ eventually want to be swimming in that gorgeous outdoor pool at the hotel in Rome. :) So it would have been my own... Read more

Well, what about Rome is that I'm planning to go there early next year. I mean, just LOOK at that gorgeous fountain (pretty much the first thing every tourist sees, apart from the airports and train stations)! It's beautiful. And just _look_ at ... Read more

As far as I know, I _wasn't_ doing that kind of weighing when I weighed in this morning at the gym. But 5 times out of 5 times, the scales claimed I've lost between 3 and 5 pounds. Overnight. Okay, that's completely impossible. I _did_ ... Read more

... isn't that the topic every one of us had to write an essay about when we were in school? I know I did, and I know my niece and nephew still do! Truth to tell, I always had fun writing that essay as a child - even if we went nowhere, my... Read more

the Colosseum at night. Imagine that. After having been in Rome twice, I've never managed to be in that neighbourhood that late in the evening. Ever. Okay, I guess that's going on my to-do list, then! :) As is simply walking everywhere... Read more
Italy in 2009!
Sunday, August 10, 2008      9 comments

Okay, I'm done feeling "down" about my weight. It is what it is. And there's no one but myself who actually caused that weight gain - it wasn't my parents - they didn't go stuffing things down my throat. It wasn't friends tempting me to ea... Read more
