Day 13 – 100 days to go!

Oh my God!!! Look at the hour! I’m getting back into good habits, and blogging at the end of the day at the latest…. and what a bold girl I’ve been – staying up till now? And speaking of beyond the pumpkin hour – am I the only South African living in the northern hemisphere missing pumpkin fritters […]

Day 12 – Thelma & Louise

Late again? Of course dears – we were in transit to Sligo! A lovely stop over in Mullingar with Claire and Rian, and a leisurely cruise via Longford. OK – I confess, leisurely until some asshole drove into the back of my car, refused to admit that he had (even though his bumper was still seductively […]

Day 11 – Toastmasters

I’m officially in full-on Toastmasters mode. Great meeting this evening, with hysterical Tall Tales to boot, and off to Land of Heart’s desire Conference tomorrow with Hop-Along Carmel – in Sligo. Apparently the after effects of delicate keyhole surgery should rather be interpreted as bolt-hole surgery – not much different to the insertions made in Frankenstein’s […]

Day 10 – Yesterday

For the millions following my mortification approach religiously – my apologies for the late post – but I was in the “Big Smoke” yesterday, and did not get around to sit in front of the pc till now. Free!!! That’s what my afternoon cost me – nothing! And you might ask what did I get up […]

Day 9 – One Step at a time

Today I had to do 10 minutes of steps. Now for whatever reason – I am having flashbacks and memories of my eight years of ballet (forced upon me) by Mommy Dearest whilst keeping up with the petite daughters of the Jones’s. I never had the guts to tell her I felt like Dumbo on […]

Day 8 – Crunch Time

O sweet Jaysus (in my best Irish vernacular – late, on my day off, but I did it! My 10 minute exercise today was the worst thing I have ever had to do. 400 crunches in 10 minutes!  For those not in the know (like myself until today) – a crunch is a supposedly LESS […]

Day 7 – Holy Communion!

Posted on

This is going to be extremely fast – and indeed not even near furious – as we are simply the greatest! As for my 10 minute excercise today – I got it in the kitchen. Yes, I was the “barker” as our chef so lovingly refers to the position. I had the honour of calling away every […]

Day 6 – Rule of Blog

Posted on

I have 112 days in this challenge – which theoretically means not only 106 more days of my programme, but also 106 more blogs. And I sit here, after a very long and emotionally very draining week at work thinking – What are the rules of blogging?  I mean – the weather today was perfect. […]

Day 5 – Good Vibration

Posted on

Like my excercise today – I am going to keep this short – but with HUGE impact. See, Martin decided to go gentle, yet effective by letting me rattle and roll on the Vibroplate! I hear you – you tell me there is no such thing as a quick fix – but at 30 hz, […]

Day 4 – Definitions

Posted on

Spin for 10 minutes – that is what my text said. Right – I realise that across the pond there is a major election going on, and that politics all round is full of “spin” – but I did not know, by definition, that me, talking pure bull for 10 minutes would burn any calories (Now-now – […]
