Millie-Milou on board for the long haul.

I am called Raffie and I've been a member since the end of May 09 now and have come on here most days to blog, log food or exercise and chat on the community forums. Its all very motivating. I live in Norfolk, UK, with my Husband and 4 dogs. I am in love with my new job as a PA in a Guitar Academy. Great fun and I literally get to play!

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

We have just moved into a 2 bedroomed, ground floor flat with a huge garden, so lots of gardening to do. Closer to the City than before, only a quick 3 mile cycle ride each way. Closer to the hospital too, for Kenjack's dialysis.

I have a small cycling addiction and have 2 bikes, my fabulous Planet X Carbon road bike, which weighs a mere 7.75kg. I have my Winter bike, also a Planet X but a Cyclocross bike, so a bit tougher than the roadie and I can go off or on road on him. He weighs in a a whopping 8.2kg :-D There are barely any hills in Norfolk but the off road riding is fun and flat-ish.
I have recently started the Exante Diet. 3 x 200 calorie food packs a day. Shakes, soups, meals, pancakes, bars etc. It's going well but you need a bit of willpower. I follow the Man Plan which means that I have a 200 calorie, low carb, high protein meal as well. However, I no longer crave junk food so something is going right. There is a thriving Facebook group for Exante, which is really supportive.
So that's me then. I'd love to chat to other Sparkies if you have the time. Anyone who'd like to friend me is more than welcome to.

Fitness Minutes: 49,604

My Goals:
To see 11 stone something on the scales. Every 7lb I lose, I shall buy myself a new CD.

10 stone something - new wardrobe
Anything less is a bonus and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Ultimately I'd like to be 147lbs so working down to it.

My Program:
My programme mostly consists of riding my bike and walking for the aerobic side of things. Bodyweight exercises in my home office.
I can't afford a gym so home exercising works well for me. My iPod is very helpful for working out with.

Personal Information:
I live in Norwich, UK. I am a Scot by birth but live in England as the Highlands are too cold for me.

Other Information:
I am a guitarist with a deep love of Eric Johnson. I love my dogs, cycling and walking. I like to curl up with a good movie on a rainy day, a good book is even better.

The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

-from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

I hope it ministers to you also.

No matter what the circumstances are, we have to remember that the Bible says "Give thanks in all things"
Don Moen is one of my favorite Christian music artists. Here are the words to one of his songs, that I hope will minister to you this week. I sing it as a prayer.

Thank You Lord
Song by Don Moen
Bible says it's a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, amen
I come before You today
And there's just one thing that I want to say
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've given to me
For all the blessings I can not see
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
I just wanna thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
For all You've done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me Your light
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
You took my sin and my shame
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank You Lord
Thank You Lord
With a greatful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstreched arm
I will bless Your name
