Who’d have thought?

Well, the last sugar laden thing I ate was trifle on Christmas day…actually, I lie. I may have snuck into the lolly jar for a couple of jelly babies at my mums on NYE. I have not been interested.  There is still an open box of Lindt balls on the dining room table (come to … Continue reading

Well, hello there 2014!

Well, hello there 2014!

I’ve never really been one for new year’s resolutions.  I did however look back on 2013, the year that ended in somewhat a rubbish manner, and it gave me the opportunity to look forward to 2014. Even on the 2nd day of the year, it is shaping up to be an amazing, busy – but … Continue reading

It is nothing like Christmas

The Devil and I have just had one of the most difficult conversations I have ever endured.  In addition to the two little humans we are responsible for, we have also been blessed with having two of the cutest four legged friends in our lives for almost 16 years.  Herein lies the problem.  They are … Continue reading

Is that my Mojo knocking?

I did it!  I went for my first run in like, forever, and….no pain! Well, not in my ankle.  I am however nursing a monster blister courtesy of my new orthotics.  You know what though, this isn’t as bad as it sounds.  Given I could feel the burn of said blister just past the half-way … Continue reading

Neglected

              Well, hello.  I’ve neglected you.  I feel terrible.  The guilt has gnawed away at me, but I have returned.  This is why I don’t own plants, they are so quiet and I forget about them.  Dogs and children on the other hand, they make noise, they let you … Continue reading

When life throws you a curve ball…

  …pick it up and throw it back. Some things have happened over the last couple of months, and the doctor has confirmed my Hashimoto’s is back in a ‘hypothyroid state’, and that is just shit.  I am tired, I’m damn exhausted.  My head is fuzzy in a way that is difficult to describe – … Continue reading

Busting my ass

Busting my ass

And how I wish that I was seeing equivalent results for exertion.  However, this is not the case.  Apparently, the fitter you are the less calories you burn.  Now, numbers have never really been my forte, perhaps this is why I’m still chasing them.  Maybe internally I’m just not programmed to understand them.  Weight loss … Continue reading

I resisted the popcorn

I resisted the popcorn

Ok, I am just putting it out there.  2013 is my year for just not giving a shit.  I could really just end my post there, but what’s the fun in that? Where has this come from?  I’ve been feeling a little deflated of late. I’ve flogged myself like the proverbial (I like to use … Continue reading

No more excuses

No more excuses

2013 – how did that happen?  I start this year torn between disappointment and determination.  Maybe I’ll use the disappointment to fuel my determination.  I signed up to a couple of rounds of Michelle Bridge’s 12WBT last year and just donated the cash to the cause.  I thought I was committed, I wanted to believe … Continue reading
