Again, in 2015 - FOCUS: I'll continue having Fun! I'll Grab Life with both hands - enjoy it all!

2015 Manifesto - attributed to rachelgadiel.com, but pretty general really -

1. Guard your time
2. Let kindness rule
3. Create good habits
4. Choose to focus on the good
5. Start each day with goals
6. Find the best in others
7. Be the best version of you
8. Believe anything is possible

8. Believe anything is possible

Although the pounds ebb and flow, and it's a constant struggle, I have absorbed into my life the idea that I need to say 'Yes' - to invitations, opportunities, etc. Instead of thinking I can't do that, afford it, shouldn't .... I work hard at thinking 'How can I manage that, afford that, make a plan, to fit that into my Life?' It seems to be working ....

Old stuff:

Originally from the UK, I now live in Cape Town, South Africa. In July 2007 I decided to change my life by living healthily and achieved my goal weight in April 2008, and felt great. Maintenance during 2012 saw a few of the released pounds find their way back so I shall pay more attention in 2013.

The magnificent Motor Yacht on my background is not MINE - I wish - but was berthed for the summer 2000/2001 in Cape Town alongside the hotel where my youngest worked for a while. The all-nations crew befriended our family &we have been in contact since. Isn't she an absolute beauty to behold?

I can but dream - and I do all the time. I do the dreaming and The Universe does the scheming, but I do the hard work wherever required.

It's just that I believe in working smart rather than hard - in all things.

Member Since: 4/8/2009

SparkPoints: 118,347

Fitness Minutes: 210,567

My Goals:
To embrace my healthy lifestyle and appreciate everything in my life. It is up to me to make the choices to find joy daily.

My Program:
I go to gym almost every day - aqua and studio classes and have been taking ballroom dancing classes for three years - I'm not so sure that these are so much fun any more. To be re-evaluated ... Yes, I did stop - finished my contract and will use the funds for travelling and other fun events.

Personal Information:
I live in Cape Town, South Africa - it is a beautiful place with lovely people. One of these is my Energy Buddy who keeps me on track with my fitness goals. We constantly energise each other

Update - she has moved 1000miles away but that shouldn't make any difference

It did though. I still miss her two years later. The solution is to visit occasionally - next trip Feb 2013.

The trip was great - we visited Sun City which was a good experience.

Then she brought her kids and Dad to visit me for my birthday in May. She is coming to Cape Town in February - sans kids - and we are discussing a trip to Morocco in Sept 2014 (positive attitude - Morocco, Morocco, here we come!)

We got together at her Company's annual Sales Awards in Cape Town, April. I did go to Morocco - but with DD2. She and I also went to Rome when I visited her in the UK in May/June

Next meeting EB is May 2015 Drakensberg Mountains

Sheila you can look in my food tracker for the meals. I enter DD's meals to calculate the fiber and calories. Then I adjust it to what I ACTUALLY eat. Today I am eating fewer calories than her and less fiber. I take out are the snacks and I add in my beer.

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I really appreciate the your care and concern! I will look for the Dr. Phil list. I know I can't sit idly by - the trick is figuring out how to help her see the truth without pushing her away. A very tricky balance.

Have a great weekend!
