Thanks to my wonderful Sparkfriends, I have discovered hiking and rediscovered photography. I love going to new places in my area each week and posting blogs about it. I also love to share my travels!

My Goals:
Weight loss goal for 2015:
Keep losing weight!

Fitness goal:
I want to be able to go hiking for the day. At the moment my knees/ back are still not happy with my weight and prevent me from going on much longer than 3/4-hour hikes. But little by little, I believe I'll get there!

My Program:
*WEIGHT LOSS
Eat small quantities (WLS in November 2014)

*FITNESS
1 or 2 hikes/walks every weekend (3 to 7 hours in total, with a photo blog for the fun and to keep myself accountable) and walks twice a week.

Personal Information:
I am French and live just outside Paris. I am 6ft (no, French women aren't all 'petite'!).

I love to travel and I am lucky to have a job (I work for an international NGO) that allows me to travel a lot, mostly throughout the developing world...

Other Information:
Thank you so much for the support I receive here from Sparkpeople and my Sparkfriends! It is helping me make my way towards a lighter life, body and mind...

Hi Claire,
lovely to hear from you! I am glad your pain has cleared up (in one area at least) - maybe it is all neural pain connected to the sciatica - annoying to say the least. I hope you were able to relax a bit on your holiday or at least were able to do some things that you had been putting off!
I am in charge of all the salaries, insurances and calculations for about 75 people at our culture centre, and as personnel costs are the highest costs in all our projects, I am continuously involved in reviews and inspections of all kinds. These have become more frequent and complicated over the years, and the preparation is time-consuming.... We still have´nt received the report from the EU-inspection in March, nor the one at the beginning of August, so they still prey on my nerves... Last Thurs. til this Monday a review of the last 4 years of health insurance, accident insurance and pensions took place - I am really happy to say that it went very well indeed - in fact, I broke my own personal record, as for the first time in the 22 years I have been in charge, there was not a single cent of deviation!
My daughter Lena, is unfortunately still in hospital as she developed an infection six days after her cesarean - sadly, she says she cannot cope with visitors just now - an emotionally tricky situation for her father and I, but we are doing our best to be calm and accepting! Little Jonna is in the best of health and Marle is delighted to be the big sister. Hugs, Claire - look after yourself!

Thanks for the blog comment. Be careful with electricity!! Make sure you have the circuit breaker (or fuse) turned off to whichever area you are working in (I'm sure you already knew that!). Don't feel bad about using Youtube for instructions, I do this all the time! It's great to be able to watch someone else do the task while explaining it, even if you've done it before and just need a quick "refresher" on doing it right. Plus, sometimes you can learn how to do something, but years later there's a better way to do it and you find that out on Youtube!
