I wanted to sit on the couch and do nothing. I stead I took these two for a walk 😁Milly (left) Ollie and I have completed 100km for the month of October. It was fun. Time to think up a November challenge?Posted a photoI love my garden in spring. Great day today for a walk 💃Doing more of everything to burn calories. K-line sprinkler fixed 😃Feeling better for not eating sweet or salty food for a month. Clearer in the mind and it feels like my body is running smoothly - if that makes sense lol 😁HUNGER PAINS - a longtime from 8pm - 8am..
You know when your tummy isn't rumbling for food but all your fat cells are saying "go on eat something, ANYTHING😲"!
Couldn't even take this photo before I'd started eating my toast this morning 😉 that feels better. 😊Roses in full bloom. Love to Mums everywhere.Happy Thanks Giving to all the SP community.
Special thoughts to those doing it a little tougher and those who have lost loved ones.
Safe travels, lots of blessings and take care.Mindless eating came to visit... I showed it out the back door. Bye bye 🙋♀️I had to power walk to keep up with my teen boys. They enjoyed the walk :)Enjoying my golden crispy omelet by melting cheese in a non stick fry pan and egg whites on top.Nothing compares to the feeling of surviving your working out. (Looking relaxed half an hour later...)Special Christmas party at my Mothers rest home. My brother, Mother 89 and I. So blessed to still have her with us.If you need a belly full of laughs and to remember life's precious, hilarious and a little tragic all rolled into one. This movie is worth watching especially enjiyed it with my older teen son's 16+. To think I'd never heard of this cult prior movie..Legend says.
When you can't sleep at night.
It's because you're awake in someone else's dreams.
Lol 😌Beautiful hinds with their fawns hiding in the long grass.Choices. Stopping at one pinacolada :) Seasons greetings everyone.Amily church service follwed by Carols by candle light, on a warm balmy evening Christchurch NZ. Merry Christmas everyone. Santa is on his way :)Three weeks after wisdom teeth removal and I'm back in the driver's seat fully charged ready to go again. Back at it, get in the healthy food tomorrow morning, shoes and gym clothes ready. Have had a super summer break away at the farm/lake.If I plan to eat well and exercise I could be in 100s before February. Milly said 'you've got this, have a great day I'm going to bed' 😉Not pretty but thanks body! I've survived and enjoyed 20 circuit training followed by day 1 Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. Thanks Jillian. I'm going to be strong :)Encouragement is so powerful. "Go SP, have a great day and thanks for being a part of my journey" :)
Aren't these gerberas glorious.To all the Mums and Dads out there with dyslexic children keep fighting for them and working, praising their strengths. Spend time on those basics - keep going it is worth it. Today my son passed chemistry calculus English etc and will enter his final year. They are smart!
And I ate well and exercised Today. Yay go me!Found this big glass it holds 1.5 cups of water. Far easier to remember to drink six of these than nine smaller glasses :)Camp fire magic. Stopped at 1 marshmallow:)It's not always comfortable when you're not slim. But i love water skiing and hope my attitude of enjoying life rubs off on my family (no matter what my size is).
Perfect day on the lake.A few roses to brighten your day. Hope you're enjoying your exercise "lifes a garden - dig it". Ive been busy pruning shrubs.Happiest dog after his evening walk. Loosened up my back following enthusiastic gardening.Sunday afternoon rest. Enjoying this book... wishing you all a fabulous peaceful Sunday.It took a bit longer than expected but I'm down 14lb to 200.

SP keep going...Ollie wishes you all a happy healthy day.I'm back on track! Winter here but I've been following my daughter on her horse. I've travelled on foot ;)This kiwi chick has booked a Calafornia holiday :) Nothing like a holiday as motivate for fitness. See ya soon..I celebrated my Mums 90th birthday this week by providing afternoon tea for staff and residents at her rest home. Then i gave all the care givers coffee shop vouchers. Feeling great about it.Late winter here. I've found an area that could be gardened! This is my new strength training project. Fence needs repaired, soil turned over, weeded, feed the soil, plant and mulch. Watch this space...
Milly might help with the digging - but she'll need a smaller shovel ;)Interesting recipe that you may enjoy.
Carrot pumpkin frittata a slim layer of cream cheese topped with a spinach brocolli frittata topped with cream cheese. Sprinkled with sunflower, pumpkin, poppy seeds and red pepper. It was yummy and with less cream cheese would have been healthy.Happiest of days planting; 3 trees, 16 shrubs and 1 rose. Blessings to all the optimist gardeners out there :)Turkey for lunch. Yum..
Has anyone here tried fasting and 8 hour eating between say 11am - 7pm?
Has it been successful?Post workout breakfast. What an amazing way to start the day. Next up walking with the local ladies... fun day!Another healthy breakfast.Its Friday night Pizza time at my house, but I ate a healthy salad :)
And I must be committed because I exercised after tea. I hate cardio in the evening but did it anyway.
Fronting up every day.My happy little lunch todaySaw the moon and planets through a telescope last night. Fascinating! Saw the rings around Saturn with 4 moons showing. I'm pretty sure we all look tiny from out of space ;)Back on track today. I could be tempted to eat a skinny breakfast after last night's pizza. But I think that would lead me to over eating later.Wish you could taste this pop of flavours. Dressing is 1T olive oil, 1 T balsamic vinegar, 1/4 t ground chilli and lime, 4 sundried tomatoes.
I've just remembered there is a recipe page..Family company on my walk and the dogs. The best!Switch cannelloni (63 for 100g) for chickpeas (364 for 100g). Oh no!

We went up, down, up, down up and finally down back to the car 70 mins on the hill was good for me.

It sustains me all day.Peony season here, loving the gardens bounty of produce and flowers.6 days a week I've been up exercising before work. Nothing like surprising yourself of your ability. I'm more flexible, can do more cardio and guess what, I've found my core. Forgotten I used to have that lol.My garden us perfumed with scented roses. Its great when you get 2 weeks off work. Found a spotless bedroom by lunch time... exercises complete.
