In February I am stress-busting - and reviving my habit of getting out and about exploring the natural world. I've got a new pair of walking boots, a new thermos flask, a monthly season-ticket for the bus - Spring has Sprung in my heart!

I am 62 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh around 8 stone 2lbs - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.

I am learning to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet which is working well for me. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

I'm keen to be lean!

I've also noticed that a lot of my status updates are about the weather - very British!

".. every pound of weight loss results in five pounds of stress taken off your knees, seven pounds off your ankles, and a whopping ten pounds off your spinal discs!" it's worth the effort!

These are my physical goals: I want to have achieved the following:-

2) to get and keep my waist under 29"

3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years

4)To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

My Program:
for the emotional reasons for eating: Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme

I aim to do some form of exercise every day - it changes! Usually I put it into the Spark Fitness tracker & I make that public on my Spark Page.

I sometimes run. I sometimes to Yoga with Adrienne. I sometimes do strength-training. I sometimes hula-hoop. I walk a lot. I am on my feet all day at work and very active. I don't go to the gym or do any classes.



Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time to provide services for adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist.


Other Information:
Strength-training - I keep stopping & starting this and haven't managed to make it into a habit yet!

    I went out for a walk today and then did some edging along our sidewalk from the side porch around the right side of the house and out to the sidewalk along the street. The warm Sun felt good, but I needed a sweatshirt because of the wind. If I stayed in an area where there was no wind and worked, I was hot.

    I need the physical exercise to think and to tire out. I don't have nightmares when I sleep, but it is hard to get to sleep. I have so many questions that I would like to know the answers to in regards to my great-nephew's disappearance.

    Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for us. Most know what it is like to lose a pet, but to have your son disappear is...well, I don't have the words for what I think his parents are going through.

    I just finished YWA Day 18. It's good. The toe stand shown on the slash-screen is a variation on the balance pose.

    As for the deleted blog, I tried to post a video but failed several times. I may try again.
