**Warning, this is another long one** Timaru, New Zealand January 25, 2015 Friend: "Timaru, eh? Isn't it quite hilly there?" Me: "I don't think so, why do you say that?" Friend: "I just don't think Timaru is as flat as Christch... Read more

Ashburton, New Zealand December 20, 2014 I wanted to document this experience for a number of reasons. I hope to one day look back on this and think of how far I have come. I also want others to believe in themselves and realize that any... Read more

Is Happiness Worth $80,000?

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      6 comments

No. It's worth more. $80,000 is the cut in pay that I took to leave my old job and end the cycle of madness that I had subjected myself to for nearly 6 years. Was it worth it? Yup. Would it be worth more? Yup. Happiness is price... Read more

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      6 comments

***Note: This is a long blog but I really hope that you take the time to read the whole thing. I promise it's worth it.*** A lot has happened over the last few years, which probably explains why I have been absent. Not just absent from S... Read more

Just checking in

Sunday, July 07, 2013      2 comments

Just a wee blog to say "hi" to everyone and check in. It's been a couple of weeks since I last wrote/checked in and it's been a bit busy. I've stagnated a bit but knowingly. I feel a bit ick right now as I ate a BUNCH of mac n cheese just now... Read more

Sick but tomorrow back to it.

Wednesday, June 19, 2013      3 comments

I've spent the last three days sick. Not working out. But I feel as though today it's starting to come right so tomorrow back on the horse. Eating hasn't been awful nor amazing...I've paid attention to my food as opposed to saying "we'll I'm ... Read more

Days are getting harder, why???

Tuesday, June 11, 2013      8 comments

So the last week or so has been tough. Real tough. Like really, really, really tough. Just trying to emphasize that. I went over my calories today because for the first time since I re-started back in April I actually felt, well, a little de... Read more

10 French fries made me feel sick...

Monday, June 10, 2013      6 comments

I ate about ten French fries at a work function tonight and felt ill afterwards. Not sure why as I still treat myself to rich foods every now and again (mainly ice cream though). Maybe it was the grease? Anyway it wasn't nice. And the same t... Read more

I ate what I wanted at dinner tonight....

Thursday, June 06, 2013      2 comments

....and it was great! Well, that's a bit of a strange statement. I eat what I want most every night but tonight was different. We went out to dinner and I had one of my favorite meals. I came home and tracked it (estimated it is more like it... Read more

This won't be a long entry. Just a journaling of sorts. I just needed to put in writing that I feel I have made huge progress with my self-control. As those of you who have been following me on here know I just returned from a trip away. Now... Read more

Sunday, May 26, 2013      6 comments

Well I'm sitting here in Hong Kong airport ready to come home. I've just had a skinny latte from Starbucks and I'm contemplating the last six days. If I were to rate my success here in HK in terms of a school report card I think I would give m... Read more

Yay! I lost another kg and am almost to my "first goal" weight of 71kg. Only 2 more kg to go before I get there and then onto goal number 2 which will be 65kg. Things were pretty good spark-wise this week. It's getting easier to work o... Read more
