All good things…

April 21, 2014

My aunt loves telling the story of me one Easter, after having overindulged in too many Red Tulip Easter Eggs… telling her I was “Tick in de tink.” Obviously I was very young and without the ability to enunciate ‘s’ or ‘th’. Not to mention guilelessly nonchalant about admitting to spewing after too much chocolate. […]


Easter meal planning

April 11, 2014

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really a Christmas kind of gal. Bah humbug and all that. Indeed, I’ve openly admitted that Easter is BY FAR my fave seasonal holiday and it’s not only because of the chocolate. (Umm… actually it is only because of the chocolate!) I’ve long confessed to a Red Tulip chocolate […]


It’s now been just over three months since I started Weight Watchers and I’m halfway through my complimentary six month membership. Time has flown and I’m reminded of the quote… the time will pass anyway. This is something I try to remind myself of whenever I’ve struggled with change. The next week, month or year […]


I’ve written a few times about my newfound love of trying previous-undiscovered recipes. I find myself tagging all sorts of dishes on the Weight Watchers site, in the hope I’ll eventually do some grocery shopping and have the necessary ingredients to try something new. My Facebook followers will know that I have a faithful fallback. […]


Why I overeat

March 25, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I came across a blog post I couldn’t read. Of course there are those times the post is completely irrelevant, but this was a case of… “I need to be in the right headspace to read this!”  The post in the Green Mountain at Fox Run blog, A Weight Lifted, […]


Thanks to all who entered my Bionade organic soft drink competition, however after much deliberation…. (ie drawn via random integer generator), the winner is…. Which means nothing to you without knowing my intricate numbering system. So, the lucky recipient of a case of 24 bottles of delicious organic soft drink is Linda James! Congrats to […]

My addiction to diet coke (or more specifically VANILLA diet coke) is well documented. I’ve given up any number of times but – for various reasons – keep returning to the magic elixir stuff. As it happens my drinking repertoire is quite limited. Other than the VDC, I (only) drink water, red wine and champagne. […]


Models with curves: Women

March 11, 2014

Many MANY years ago (sometime in the early-mid 1990s) I attended a fundraising event for a local hockey team which included a fashion parade. As this all took place in my small childhood hometown, the fashion parade featured actual team members. Not models. Not even wannabe models. Just normal women. Hockey players. I still remember […]


I’m afraid I’m killing two birds with one stone – participating (as usual) in Kerri Sackville’s #MyFirst blogging challenge, plus sharing a Weight Watchers recipe which actually lead to a very overdue revelation. Confused? Never fear. All will become clear! As many of you know I’m doing Weight Watchers and one of my biggest achievements […]


Thanks to everyone who entered my competition to win compression wear from Aussie company o2fit. I sent entries (without names) to the lovely folk from o2fit and… they actually chose two winners rather than just the one, so two lucky readers will receive compression gear to help them look great and recover effortlessly when they […]


WW – Persian eggs with sumac

February 25, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I shared some of my fave Weight Watchers recipes and (surprisingly) they all involved chicken. So… as I don’t want you to think I’m showing our feathered friends any favouritism, I wanted to share another recipe which I’ve made a couple of times and enjoyed. And – it’s a breakfast […]


This post could have gone either way so, for the record, I’m very relieved THIS is the version you’re reading. Last Thursday I was feeling very ordinary. My sleep patterns were screwy all week and I woke with sinus-like headache pain which wasn’t improved with diet coke (a rarity in my world). It was a […]


Sponsored post When I was exercising more and in the whole gym, crossfit, tabata and DOMS frame of mind, I read a lot of blogs about health and fitness. I noticed those – particularly the ‘hardcore’ out there doing marathons, extreme bootcamps and the like – seemed to be talking A LOT about compression clothing. […]
