From Janet. I haven't been posting because the Christchurch murders really got to me and everything else seemed silly in comparison. But today, I'm determined to move on and get back on track. So what have I been doing this past week? Reading, eating and watching Harry Potter! Not very helpful, I know. But the … Continue reading Willpower or won’tpower?
A serious post from Janet. I put weight on this week. I know why - giving in to too many sugary temptations. It's hard to change the habits of a lifetime, and it isn't going to happen overnight. Not only do you need to break the unconscious behavior behind a bad habit, you need to … Continue reading How Many Times Can You Bounce Back?
From Janet. I've been posting so much about screwing up this diet and fitness thing that I thought I'd break the pattern and post a success - I've had two good walks! That might not sound like much, but to me it's massively encouraging. First, I've discovered I can walk 5 km without dying at … Continue reading I had a good walk!
From Janet. I ate five Cadbury Creme eggs last night. I'd bought a pack to hand out as treats but they were just too tempting. Also, since I'm letting it all hang out in this blog, I don't actually know who I intended to give them to. It just seemed like a really good idea … Continue reading It’s not going well…
From a grumpy Janet. My blogging buddy, Elizabeth King, promised me a fun, girls' weekend away in May, in beautiful Hawke's Bay. We'd laugh, eat, talk about books (and our husbands!) and relax. Sounds great right? That's what I thought when I agreed to it. Only she forgot to mention that we'd have to walk … Continue reading I was conned.
A joint post by Elizabeth and Janet. Elizabeth's Version of Events I have a very good friend who is hugely supportive of my weight loss efforts and who is always looking for ways to encourage and assist me. Sadly, many of these ways involve exercise. One of her latest suggestions was to walk another half … Continue reading A half marathon… really?
From Elizabeth King. So, I’m back in the land of grapes following my holiday in Hawaii and I know I said I was going to start fresh and be committed, but… well… things haven’t gone exactly as planned. There was all the unpacking, and washing, and grocery shopping because there was no food in the … Continue reading Today is the start of a new week…
from Janet - who needs a keeper! My intermittent fasting diet was going great - until I went grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Every diet book I've ever read has said this is no-no. But it was either shop while hungry or order pizza for the kids' dinner - then end up eating that … Continue reading A Dieter’s Logic is a Dangerous Thing!
From Elizabeth King. A note from Janet - Elizabeth is back from holiday and the blog is saved! Here she is with her reasons for dieting. So what is my why? I love giving anything a go (at least once anyway). I do have to admit though, that I might have overdone it on the … Continue reading Elizabeth’s first post
from a stressed Janet... I accidentally arranged for my home phone to be cut off this week. I'd gone online to increase the data in our broadband account, clicked the wrong button and signed us up for broadband only, no landline. Didn't realize I'd done it until the phone went dead, and my husband's work … Continue reading The problem is…
