You’re just lazy

This was something a friend said to me. Recently. Well, actually, she didn’t. Not in real life. But in a dream I had, she sat opposite me and said these very words. You’re just lazy. Although it was a dream, albeit a very vivid one, it hit a nerve. The...

Why do I make poor choices

Poor choices – why do we make them?

Like many women of a certain age, I have tried every single diet plan there is. I know all about poor choices.  I know all about what I should be doing.  I know what I should be eating.  I know what helps me to shed weight. Here’s what I know about diets?...

Slimpod Gold

Win a Slimpod Gold programme

Many of you will have heard me chatting or read my blogs about Slimpod.  I am a big fan of the Slimpod Gold Programme (includes the Slimpod, Fitpod and Chillpod).  I have found myself trying new things, passing on calorific treats and I even bought a bike! I know if...

To eat the cake or not eat the cake

“Eat the cake.  Don’t eat the cake” – do you have voices in your head or is it just me? I doubt it is just me. Do you have conversations with yourself?  I don’t mean frightening conversations.  I mean conversations where you try to justify behaviour or talk yourself into...

Miracle Morning

Miracle Morning or Major Mayhem

I have recently discovered yet another dippy hippy activity – my husband’s words, not mine.  I am talking about Hal Elrod’s Miracle Morning. Now the idea behind this is to raise early and to carry out six activities before you start your day. The morning starts with SAVERS  (an acronym to...

Getting back in the saddle

Getting back in the saddle

Last month, we bought a new bike for me.  I was never really an enthusiastic cyclist as a child, I owned a Tomahawk (my brother got the Chopper) but I was more a roller skate and make perfume from petals type girl. However, I am listening to a Fitpod from Thinking Slimmer at the...

Half pound weight loss in a year

Sunday Sharing: Thinking Slimmer with Slimpod and public accountability

In one year of many attempts, I’ve lost the grand total of 0.5lb. During that year I’ve gained 1 stone, lost 1.5 stone, gained 1 stone, lost 0.5 stone … And so on. Over the last few months I’ve been looking into what works best for me. Being in Fitbit...

#Thinkingslimmer with Slimpod

Too much on my plate? Or Just Enough and Thinking Slimmer?

A month or two ago, I mentioned I was using a Slimpod with Thinking Slimmer.  It has been a really interesting experiment. As you all know I have three children (with the grand total of 14 months between them) – one has ASD and hydrocephalus, one is blind and one has...

Diets do not work – Try Thinking Slimmer

Where did January go?  I cannot believe we are already in February, I am also sure that is a sign of getting old so let’s move quickly on. Everyone who knows me will know that I, like many women, have tried every diet there is.    Some diets have been...

Perfect Pampering

What can I say?  Today I have been pampered and I cannot remember feeling as relaxed for a long long time.  It’s a long time since I had any pampering. A month ago, I entered one of those competitions on Facebook, you know the ones – “like this photo/page and...
