Once, in another life, (The past is another country, they do things differently there) I was a teacher of History and English. Now I'm retired and finding time galloping along.
Interests: history, pets, genealogy, reading and now, after the earthquakes, geology! And, of course, maintaining the progress I have made towards a healthy lifestyle and weight.

Once, in another life, (The past is another country, they do things differently there) I was a teacher of History and English. Now I'm retired and finding time galloping along.
Interests: history, pets, genealogy, reading and now, after the earthquakes, geology! And, of course, maintaining the progress I have made towards a healthy lifestyle and weight.
I follow a plant-based, low processed eating plan and keep as close as possible to its basic tenets. So that means generous servings of leafy greens and other vegetables (GBOMBS) and smaller servings of nuts and seeds.
I like walking but also keep active with gardening and I try to do ST and use DVDs for yoga and Pilates.

I'm working on mindful eating practices and hope to become an intuitive eater.

My Goals:
2016: Goals still the same: To get back to my maintenance weight range (nearly there!) and healthy lifestyle.
To give some time to hobbies and interests.
To be as energetic and generally healthier as I can at my age so that I can enjoy my retirement for many years and to the full.
To become a tough old lady!

My Program:
Can be summed up:
You are what you eat.

Enough's as good as a feast.

Self-compassion.

Personal Information:
Living in New Zealand, so the seasons are usually different on the challenges.
Married to a Kiwi-Australian who is managing Type 2 diabetes.
Kept busy with husband, 3 cats, canary, gardening, reading, SP, genealogy, word games, puzzles. I used to knit and crochet and would like to find time to pick them up again.

Other Information:
When you're in a hole, stop digging.

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution


Change is not always progress.

So glad you came by my blog Penny. Gosh, it's been a long time since I wrote one. I just took a trip down memory lane. Oh, 2011 was a glorious time in my life, that's for sure. I loved the two-year "break" in college.
Well, I've started taking the stairs again. There was no elevator on campus during that successful time in my life. I need my old mentality back!
I noticed your recent goodies and offer my sympathy too. I hope everything is ok and am thinking of you!
