  • G where are you?! How did the sharks go?

    Comment


    • Well, thought I'd resurrect a bit.

      Our family is looking forward to Matariki. The kiddo's class has a cool event coming up. The planetarium is bringing a bunch of telescopes up hill and giving an astronomical presentation around Matariki, and then we sing songs and head back to the school where there's a play and more songs and then a morning tea. I'm really excited about it.

      It's a pretty swank life there. Beautiful walks along the harbour to/from work. 2 yoga classes/wk. swimming and home yoga. walking all over. a massage and acupuncture every week. So awesome. Also, we moved to a new apartment that is warm and dry! yay!

      • I have fond memories of my travels in NZ, such friendly people everywhere.

        Hiking in fiordland was an amazing experience.

          • It has been a long time Zoe, Gwamma dropped out and she was the one who kept it going. Nice that you are back in NZ and enjoying the lifestyle.

            • Hi guys, just popped in to say hi and I hope you are all well and living life to the full !
              This old Gwamma is still just plodding along. I have finally done the full circle and back to eating in a very paleo way, although after a recent trip to Thailand, have incorporated a weeny bit of rice I to my diet. Not much - just a weeny bit.
              I hope you are all well. and I miss you all like crazy!!!!!!! I am still drinking far too much Pinot noir, still as lazy as Sh-t, BUT am finally losing the weight !!!!! Only 7 kgs down, and still 20+ to go, but hey - life is actually about enjoying and living !!!!!!! So this old Gwamma is just chillaxing and making the most of every day.
              I so hope you guys are all doing the same
              Miss you

                • hi Gwamma and Annie!

                  doing well here. taking a really 'balanced' approach to life these days. Lots of enjoyable things -- swimming, working the business, doing yoga, hanging out with my kid (swimming with him 2x a week), hiking and going to the beach, and overall just having a great time.

                  it's school holidays, so my son and i have been having a lot of fun in the spring sunshine. We went to the local water slide pool (3 slides and a river ride and wave pool), we went to the movies, and just have been having a good time.

                  We're gearing up -- DS and I -- to do some open-water swimming this summer *and* perhaps a little race (i will do 1k; DS will do 200M). We have a lot of fun together in the pool and his swimming is fab!

                  So that's me.

                  • HIYA GWAMMA. Welcome back!!! Great progress on the weight loss, great philosophy to make the most of every day. I hope you will hang around here more, these boards can get a bit serious and I know you will be able to fix that

                            • Gwamma, I am relieved the sharks didn't get you. Joanie made a recent return but all the other friends you mention have been awol for quite some time. It's not the same round here any more.

                              Good luck with the keto, I don't know if it will work with Pinot noir though.

                              As for golf, how to ruin a good walk. My DH is completely addicted, me, nah.

                              • heya G! I was just looking around too. I did think keto hadn't worked years ago which was why we had peat? and remember PB and her eat more fat thread? I don't know. What I find is my body gets used to whatever I am doing and then I need to change it all and I am at that stage now. Also things that make me weigh and count my food dont work but I can cut out a complete item provided it isnt coffee re: steak and Pinot. remember the rum hack? it works with whisky too so maybe you could do a weekly one day fermented grape juice fast? which does sound alot healthier. Or maybe you could do bulletproof mulled pinot to make it keto lol I still haven't recovered from the whisky hack so no booze here for me for probably over 6 months. Not that I exactly drunk that much anyways which may be why those particular hacks worked so well. The weather here has been hideous. Not too much snow but so wet. Ankle deep in water in a lot of the yard. Muddy everywhere else. We even have mozzies inside the house at this time of year which is totally bizarre. Exercisewise, still training once a week. Still doing big weights and getting more creative with kettlebells. I am just starting the get strong book.
