Update entry

Its been a while since I last updated this blog of mine, reason being...have not trained since I was told to rest until 2nd week in January 2011...so am doing just that and feeling very unfit I must say...but will hang in there till after Christmas and New Year before hitting the gym as I will not be running in the snow and sludge ~ this is still too foreign for me ~ thankfully I had two extra months of running in the sunshine so not complaining.

Sugar wise I have not been as strict...I am trying to stick to foods without sugar, no sugar in my coffee, but I have had a few blocks of chocolate, my daughter is eating chocolate and ice cream around me, so having to pull out all the stops not to join her whenever she eats these sort of things.
Coming home and having no food in the house was also tough as I ate whatever there was and could not worry too much about sugar...
I am eating one fruit and day and loving it....cant wait till I can have at least two fruits a day...:)

I subscribed to the Oxygen Magazine this evening...am excited as I remember from paging though them back in Cape Town that they offered a lot of variety..and thats what I am looking for right now. I feel the Shape no longer satisfies me....so moving on. ( hehehe )

I still want to sit and write down my goals in my personal life for 2011 and when it comes to fitness and financial as well....there are many things I want to do this coming year....one that I know for sure is that I want to do more weight training and run 3x a week instead of daily, I also want to get my photography business off the ground and I want to learn the German language...the other smaller goals I have to give more thought to before I write them down.
Thankfully this coming year I don't have a number I want to reach weight wise, I am satisfied where I am right now but want to tone my body up and make it the best body I can for myself.

When it comes to my MS...I don't want to start medication this year....so to convince everyone else on this is still a battle I have to face, when I mention this to my hubby he freaks and says really nasty things, as I don't have his support in not going the medication route. I want to go the holistic route as I have no symptoms that I live with....but as I said, this area still needs lots of thought.


  1. How we are on the same page- I too just sent in my subscription card to Oxygen-I have been trying to avoid sugar as well based on your post from group- I have been trying but it is hard....

  2. It seems like you have a lot on your plate. As for the regards to the MS I think you know how I feel. My dad has had it over 20 years and takes nothing for it that docs. would give. Everything being done is as natural as possible.

    I am still playing the number game on the scale going into 2011. Something I thought I would be done with. I want to start training using weights as my arms could take me away if I dont start toning up soon.

  3. Oooo, the Oxygen Magazine. Great. I myself, also enjoy that magazine very much.

  4. It is that time of year to MAKE CHANGES and SET GOALS. You're always good at that. I'm making some changes too and seems to agree with me - lost 5 lbs the past few weeks. I'm loving the NEW WW program they introduced in the States.

    You take care of yourself and put lots of thought into your treatment - it's vital. I'll have to check into Oxygen as well - sounds like what I need. Have a WONDERFUL Christmas with hubby if I don't have a chance to talk with you. PS. I love how you want to learn the German language - that's awesome!

  5. I love your goals for next year, look forward to see how you are doing with them.

    I have a subscription on Oxygen too but till today haven't received anything. I also have a subscription to Shape which I still like.

  6. Such big decisions. People have their opinions because they love you and fear for you. Always remember that in the midst of feeling unsupported. I pray you will find the path that's right for you in regards to your illness. xxxx

  7. Wow Marcy - It sounds like you really have your hands full right now, but your mindset is great and I know 2011 will bring you great things...
    Also, what a CUTE picture!
