The reason for my silence :-)

We are pregnant :-)

So now you know what I have been up to the last few weeks.  Lots and lots of early nights and not much time on the computer.

Been busy growing our little bean.  This scan was done 19th November (Thursday) when s/he was 11 weeks 3 days and measuring 2 inches head to "rump".

Bye for now,

Liska (excited and pregnant)

Still here

My friend sent me the above via Facebook and I think it was a hint that I am no longer updating my blog.  Can't believe I am doing so right now, as I am on a Yoga Course this weekend and have THREE things to prepare for it (1) a presentation (2) revise for the exam we have Sunday and (3) practice a class I have to be assessed teaching.

So, with all of that said,  I am off to work on the aforementioned presentation.

Promise I will be back with a bang soooooooon.

Liska (still alive and well)

Happy Birthday!

Sorry I have been rubbish

Hi All

Was about time I came out of blog hibernation LOL.  Realised it today when my friend Emma texted me to ask why I had not been updating...

Haven't weighed myself in weeks, so can't update on that score.  Went to circuit training today.  It's fab.  But was well hard, as I do it with 2 of my colleagues and as neither of them could make it, it became a 1 to 1 personal training session.  HARD.  Will be aching next couple of days. And then circuits again on Wednesday. And again I will be on my own.

Very busy at work.  Business Planning for whole of 2010.

Spent Saturday with friends and it was fab. Siobhan and Fiona and Siobhan's gorgeous little boy Ferran.

Sunday was a bit odd.  After food shopping and cooking lunch I fell asleep on the sofa for hours.  Was lovely, but meant I did not get the housework done :-(

Bye for now, Liska

In the absence of any decent photos (my digital is broken) I am uploading a not so good one, so you have an image of me in a Shopping Centre in Krakow :-)

I did go back to the old days, and resorted to buying a disposable camera, but have not had those developed yet, so this is from my BlackBerry :-)

Yes, photos developed, doesn't that sound quaint.

Well this photo shows how mumsy I look, still carrying my 13.5 stone around with me, but at least it is no longer 14 stone thanks to the Yoga Festival :-)

Can't write more at the moment........ so goodbye for now and hope you are all very well.

Time Traveller's Wife


Went to see this movie with my husband last night because I read the book years ago, and LOVED it. Anyway, in the UK it came out on 14th August.

I loved the movie so so so much. It is the first time a film has done a book justice. Made me cry so many times.

I had not seen the trailer before I saw the movie. Just watched it on You Tube now and it RUINS a couple of the things that kept me on the edge of my seat so DO NOT WATCH IT.

I am going to Poland today. Then that'll be all my annual leave gone until January 2010.

Week in Portugal in January. Week in Ireland for the wedding. Week in France for Yoga Festival and now week in Poland.

The first 3 were not with hubby, so this is us on holiday, and he wanted to go to Krakow. Couldn't help that these 3 weeks are close to each other, but wedding and festival are pretty fixed dates :-) and this was the week hubby has off.

Anyway, not sure if I will blog from there so thought I would jump on even though I am meant to be packing.

Bye for now girls. Big hug,

Liska xxx

OLD..........Fit on the inside& fat on the outside


Some funny funny stories from late............. today my boss said she'd heard that from all the circuit training I was fitter, and she was perplexed as she said she couldn't tell....

So I went on to say, "well, I used to hold the railing on the flights of stairs up to the office, and now I can run up them", to which she said, "Oh, you must be fit on the inside and fat on the outside"............

I laughed and laughed and laughed as it was so funny the way she said it. I ran to tell a few people in the office, none of who could understand why I wasn't offended. But it was just SO funny I couldn't be.

While in France I asked a girl at the festival how old I look and was VERY disappointed when she said 37, so all the signs are there, that I need to change things.

Anyway, I finally have a photo from the wedding I can share, as the ones I previously shared (of the black dress) were from the DAY AFTER the wedding........... So now I share a photo from the wedding in Ireland 17th July 2009.

The shoulder bit is not part of the dress. It is a 2 tone scarf that just happened to match exactly, that I practically glued to my shoulders to cover my chubby upper arms.

It is not the most flattering of photos, but good enough to share :-)

Bye for now folks. Hope you are all well :-)

Back with a tan, and half a stone slimmer

Hi All

I got back Wednesday evening but was so so sleep deprived going on the computer was the last thing on my mind. There was a train strike so I had to be up for work at 5 a.m. Thursday and Friday (and after getting up at 4 or 3.30 at the festival........).

I have finally worked out that I lost half a stone while there. My tummy is a quarter of the size it used to be. I have to be careful as in just these few days I can see it starting to resurface :-)

The theme of this year's festival was the 9th body = the subtle body, so the vibe of the festival was indeed very subtle and very gentle, so all the emotions also were very gentle.

I stayed in a small dorm, 6 girls total and they were all lovely. For the first time (this is my 4th festival) I stayed in a top bunk, so it was exercise getting in and out of that :-)

We had glorious weather. Must have been 30 degrees every day - see the photo. We only had 1 day of rain although I think there were a couple of nights when it rained.

Every morning I did the Shakti Dance workshop and every afternoon I did the all camp workshops followed by the evening Gong Workshop which is pure bliss. I think I only did the evening yoga once...

A lesson I can take from there is that while there I made a real effort with my clothes every day which made me feel really divine, radiant and feminine..... I need to do the same here, but would you believe I have not unpacked yet.................... Yesterday I slept till 2 o'clock and apart from having a manicure I vegged all day....

So I do need to get off this computer and do alot today.

But that is a point, how does your wardrobe effect your self-esteem. My wardrobe contains size 12, 14, 16 and 18, and it is cluttered, over-full and uninspiring...... yet my yoga clothes were all beautiful. I bought quite a lot of new stuff before I went (cheaply in Southall) as I knew alot of the clothes from last year would no longer fit)...

I don't often buy nice new clothes as I do not want lovely clothes in large sizes, so since January I have been telling myself "when I lose the weight, I will buy some new clothes"...... but since January I have been 13.5 stone and in recent weeks was 14 stone. THANK GOD I lost that extra half a stone in France. May it stay there. Sat nam.

So now I need to get cracking lowering the weight from what it was in Jan, when the new year's resolution was meant to have begun.

But I would like to take pride in my appearance here the way that I did at the festival.

I will head off for now. Oh and I got a lovely tan there too.

Best wishes,

Liska xxxxxxx

Bye for now xx

Getting ready (well... once I get off this computer) to go to the Yoga Festival tomorrow.

8 days of vegetarian food, yoga and meditation.

Will touch base with you all when I get back.

Must go and eat and pack.

Very early start for my Eurostar. Bye for now.

Ireland - target weight NOT made by target date - little black dress

So, I was supposed to lose weight for this MUCH anticipated large family wedding on Friday 17th July 2009. I did not achieve it.....

I don't yet have photos from the wedding as my camera was broken.

BUT I have the below 2 photos from the BBQ that was the following day (18th July). I took below at about 1 a.m. at night after getting home from the BBQ. So technically it was 19th July. Took below on BlackBerry so I would have a photo record of my dress :-)

I did take a couple of photos on day of wedding (with BlackBerry) but stupidly I did not take any with me in, but my Uncle has promised to email me some.

The below photos really prove that what you wear can make a HUGE difference. I think the dress below is much more slimming than the one I wore for the wedding.

If I was a stranger looking at below I would not believe I am 14 stone..... That's probably what makes me stay off the wagon, because occasionally I do scrub up well :-)

I am not being big headed, just love this dress and was very happy with what my little cousin did with my hair. You can't tell in photo but the front was back combed behind my head band

Anyway, on Tuesday I am off to the yoga festival, so will get super healthy there.

Bye for now, Liska

In Ireland


Took a moment to go online, as I am checking in online to fly home.

I feel like I have lost a couple of pounds here as I have been eating salads all week.

Anyhow the wedding is tomorrow, and my toe nails and finger nails look FAB and my fake tan looks gorgeous, so all I have left to do is hairdressers at 9 a.m. and then wedding at 12:30.

There'll be 370 at it, so will be great. Wedding will go on till about 5 am and then there is a BBQ the next day.

Anyway I am off to get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

See you blog world and I hope you are all very very very well.

Lots of love and light,

Recap on the day

I had a relatively healthy day.

Had a cappuccino on the way to work but I figure I am off them from 1st July as my alchemy of turning coffee into circuits twice a week starts tomorrow...

At work I had my usual porridge...

and nothing apart from a handful of nuts until lunchtime which was later than normal.

On way to work I had bought all the ingredients for a Vita-mix soup so I made that for lunch (raw ingredients mixed with hot water and blended).... delicious.

And for once I did not have it with bread... I was crunching on celery with a pot of humus to dip it in and had about 3 spoons of coleslaw.

Then the only thing I have eaten tonight is what I ate at the gym cafe after a swim which was a pasta salad with feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes. BUT with it I had a cafe mocha large, and a large cookie.

But the above is all that has passed my lips all day, so not bad. Oh but I have only had about 2 glasses of water all day today, and it has been 30 degrees which is HOT in LOndon - trust me..... so I shoulda been guzzling. Dr Robert O Young would recommend 6.5 litres of water a day, given how much I weigh!

And the twice a week circuit training starts this week and is booked for Wednesday and Thursday, urrrggggh and then I have a Race for Life 10k to walk and run on 5th July - double uuurrrgggh :-)

Liska Life (off to bed)

P.S. the soup contained:

2 stalks of celery
2 carrots
2 organic on the vine tomatoes
a piece of ginger
1/3 bag of greens
half a red bell pepper
an avocado
a table spoon of bouillon and 4 cups of hot water
Before you say my ingredients don't match the photo, I got the photo from Google Images...

Opening UP


I normally "sleep in" on Saturday and Sunday, but today, I was in the Supermarket at 8 a.m. Victor and his lovely wife Emma, and two gorgeous daughters were due to arrive at 11 a.m. and I wanted to make them a beautiful dinner.

I was up at 6, as even though I had a half day off work Thursday, still more housework needed to be done. I always either work hard, or relax on sofa, or swim in gym, or sleep, hence I get behind with housework so lots needed doing.

When they arrived Victor was quite hungry so I did a thrown together lunch to keep us going till dinner. We went for a long walk along a canal, and I'd planned to cook dinner when we got back. Thinking that walk would rustle up an appetite.

BUT when we got back, they needed to go so they'd be home at a reasonable time, so there was no time to make dinner, so I said can I at least fast forward to dessert. I issued dessert but as it was so so so hot (we have thunder and rain now, so it was the sticky heat that precedes that) I also gave them lots of water melon to hydrate them after the walk and for the long drive home.

Anyway, my lesson learned is that BEFORE we went for the walk, even though one little lady was asleep on the sofa, the other little lady did not fall asleep despite Victor rocking her in his arms for 30 minutes, so he asked if he could lie her on my bed (away from distractions). With head held low I had to admit that my bedroom was too messy for her to go in there. OH MY GOD, you could have dug a hole a 100 feet deep and I would have climbed right in. It wasn't about pride, and shame about my housekeeping skills - it wasn't! It was me... denying a 2 year old her afternoon nap. It struck like a knife in my heart, and I cannot get the wound out of my head.

Hence, I will tackle the bedroom like a demon tomorrow.

But what is odd is that I don't like to tidy the bedroom. When my Mum is coming at Xmas, I will spruce up the WHOLE flat, and always do the bedroom last, like out of obligation.... whereas I enjoy to do the rest of the flat.

I think the problem is that it has the decor we inherited from the previous owners and I DON'T LIKE IT. The only thing that motivates me to do housework is knowing how good it will look when finished.

I LOVE how the sitting room, kitchen, bathroom, and toilet look when spring-cleaned, but my bedroom I HATE.

So, I need to tidy it tomorrow, to cleanse my emotion of today and then, I need to plan a refurb.... I have been postponing a proper refurb as I am trying to be sensible in the run up to us having a ............. baby (yes, we are trying),,,,,,,,, but I cannot cope with how much I hate the bedroom anymore....... yuk yuk yuk.

We love everything about the flat (which is why we bought it) but the only room where I really don't like the ....... wallpaper...... is the bedroom and I don't like the carpet...... and I don't know if I like the BLUE colour scheme (it might not suit my feng shui - I must find out) AND we kept their wardrobes x 3 and dressing table and to be 100% honest, they are not my taste. BUT we moved in in August 8 years ago and got married in the same October, so we were glad for whatever came with the flat (newly decorated throughout). I can't replace something "for the sake of it" but EIGHT years later I think I SHOULD!!!

A bedroom should be a place you can get away TO not FROM.

Growing up, my bedroom was always my SANCTUARY - I was an only child and my Mum always made sure my room was gorgeous, BUT she packed it up while I was at Uni, because she was moving to Ireland. So although it had always been my safe corner of the world it was GONE in the blink of an eye without chance for a good bye.....
Yes it is an open wound. Given that my Mum went to Ireland in 1994, it is a wound I need to GET OVER.

Anyway, sorry this blog post is like me spilling my guts out on computer, but it was about time I did..................

If you have read as far as here, you must be mad........ no! seriously! thank you for reading........


If I am here updating tomorrow it should be AFTER I tidy my bedroom!

Housework, working from home and self love or self-ish?

Hello, is there anybody there? Got no comments yesterday so thought everyone had run away or gone into hibernation? ;-)

I worked on Saturday morning (went in for a Customer Focus Group) and then dashed from there to a baby shower so it was a pretty intense day and I got home very late. Was meant to spend whole of Sunday doing housework but just vegged out all day - shattered like a zombie.

Anyway, my Mum was always a martyr when I was growing up, and always put others needs before her own, and this rubbed off on me, and into my psychological make-up and DNA. She is not like that now, BUT she has lived in Ireland since 1994/1995 (where she was brought up - she moved back there after bringing me up in UK). Anyway, I haven't been sufficiently exposed to the new her....... (due to her in Ireland) so I am still influenced by the her of my upbringing........... this means I am inherently reluctant to do anything that could be remotely deemed selfish, and when I do, am easily thrown off course, or get defensive............

As this sounds like rambling I best give examples. If my paperwork at work builds up, I never take time out to get on top of it, as I feel like I should be in "service" mode at all times.... The other day, I thought I can't carry on like this, I need to go through my piles... file some things, shred some things etc..... Anyway I must have had a guilty conscience about it....... because although I was "selfish" enough to delve into my files in work time (normal me would normally stay late to do it if at all), the minute my boss said: "what are you doing?" I said: "that is exactly why I never do this, because I know someone will challenge me on it".......... she was like "where on earth did that reaction come from, and no need to be sooooooo defensive!".........

then we bickered a little, and then I said "please let's not row, I don't need a row" and she changed the subject and we ended up having a normal, cheerful conversation........

Anyway, on another similar note, because I offered to go into the Customer Focus Group I wasn't going to ask to take the time back, but because the early start meant I was shattered Sunday and got no housework done...... I emailed my boss yesterday and said tomorrow, can I work from home in the morning and then have the afternoon off as "time back" - she was like "yep no problem" but she emailed me to ask for a list of what I'd do at home in the morning...... I knew she was half joking but I duly emailed her the list AND kept her updated this morning on my progress.

As I have lunch with Victor everyday, he challenged me the other day when he heard I'd be taking time back today. He said "but you went to that Focus Group of your own free will" - I got defensive, but inhaled it and simply replied "Victor, I come to work everyday out of my own free will" - he said "good on you, I come for the wages" :-)

Anyway, after I did my morning working from home, strictly till 12:10, I then jumped in the shower and got dressed (I'd worked in PJs) and then walked, in the gorgeous mid-day sun to the supermarket to get the healthy ingredients I would need for a healthy dinner for me and hubby.

On the way to the supermarket, I stopped into a nail bar (the weather is amazing at the mo and I can't wear sandals due to state of my toes) and booked a pedicure and manicure, but for 2 o'clock.......

I knew I could go do the food shopping and come back, but I knew that would not take till 2, so I thought no problem, I will sit in somewhere for lunch, and then buy ingredients for salad dinner, and then come back to the nail bar.......

Anyway, the other day when Victor and I had our long walk to Moorgate (for him to pay in a cheque) we passed a cafe, with the smell of all day (fried) breakfast coming out....... we resisted temptation but the memory of the temptation and smell stayed with me, so this afternoon even though I was on my way to buy healthy food which I did buy, I did first of all order and eat a cooked breakfast, with ALL the trimmings...

It made me feel sluggish and SO thirsty. I had to drink 2 litres of Evian (water) to recover and can't wait for my healthy salad which I must now go and make..... I did later make it (here is the photo.... which I am adding on to this post at 21:25 - it was yummy - husband and I both enjoyed!)

This post was meant to be about all the housework I have done this afternoon which was such good exercise. As the weather is stunning I have all the windows flung open.....

But, yes, this self love versus self-ish, is a huge issue for me......... I feel the need to reply to emails, rather than keep my inbox and sent items tidy, I feel the need to serve others rather than myself........ I feel like when I was manufactured, the "to serve" function was given too high a listing in my make-up.......

I really hope someone out there can relate to me on this one......... BUT asking to work from home today and taking the half day off was a major thing for me as silly as it sounds....... and walking down the street, in the mid-day sun, on a week-day, when I should be at work felt like bliss (but there was a slight knot in my stomach saying: "Liska, you rebel!").

Bye for now, Liska LIFE!

My relationship with coffee continues.........

....... but the alchemy, where my coffee a day becomes an increase in circuits from once a week to twice a week, starts on 1st July so I haven't broken any promises..... yet ;-) When I blogged about it previously, it was on the day we negotiated the deal (£60 for July and August and £80 from September onwards). So from end June it is bye bye Virgin Active. In the UK Virgin Active is a chain of health clubs by the way.......

Breakfast was a cappuccino at 7:30.......... at my train station....... then I had a horrific journey to work............ so stopped into a cafe and got a LARGE LATTE and a croissant containing ham and tomato....

BUT lunch was a healthy salad: lots of mixed leaves, avocado, sun dried tomatoes, olives, 2 half eggs, etc......

Now, I am in Virgin Active on their computers, having had a swim, jaccuzzi, steam room and then sauna. I am munching on a very large salad from their cafe, (but I also ordered a cafe mocha).... and a small 35g bar of organic Green & Black's chocolate (don't know if you have it in the States).

I am "working from home" tomorrow, so that should be very very interesting from a food point of view.

I am sorry, this is another boring food recap on my day............

Okay, for something non-food related.... I spent the afternoon interviewing and we "made someone's day" by offering them the job. I know she is the right one for the role, and that's a lovely feeling. I like it when good things happen to good people :-)

Today's progress - get back on the horse tomorrow


So I started the day with porridge (which I think I forgot to mention on yesterday's post). Yesterday I had the porridge at home, but then also had a bowl of fruit salad (as a 2nd breakfast when I got to work)... But today I had nothing at home, and had porridge with Victor at work, when I got in.

For lunch I had a long walk to Moorgate and back, followed by a healthy salad with a buttered jacket potato (even though it was a very very hot day - and then evening - I wanted something warming). Sounds funny but salad felt a bit like deprivation (don't get me wrong I normally LOVE salads). The mood I was in, it was like comfort food meant something warm.... I hope someone out there can relate to that.

I drank a few cups of peppermint tea again today (but I DID have a cappuccino on the way to work, and also had a cup of chai - which contains black tea - with my porridge when I got in).

Okay, so now for the confession:

On the way home I felt like getting off the train and buying a take-away of veggie burger and chips. I resisted temptation (in my head), but then phoned husband to let him know I'd be home early, only to be told he would be at his Mum's house all evening...... It was such a glorious evening this evening I was GUTTED when he told me that, but I resisted again (in my head). Got off the train and started to walk home, at which point one of the roads home was blocked by a scary dog! so I thought @£$K! this, it felt like the final straw, and I went and got the take-away, but it felt like I just needed an excuse.........

Anyway, after that sort of roller-coaster eating the food is normally an anti-climax and you normally wish you hadn't gone with temptation but I can honestly say, I enjoyed every mouthful........

So I will get back on the horse tomorrow and will not berate myself. Oh I did have a Pepsi with it even though I know the baddies that sodas contain!

Oh and husband is STILL not home yet which I am quite sad about. I have been home for 4 hours.

Healthy Day

Recap on today.

I got a cappuccino from the coffee trailer on my train platform - yes I haven't 100% cut back yet, but have drastically reduced - once the £60, and then £80 a month for circuits starts I will be 100% off coffee (I am even going to try from tomorrow).

On way to work I bought a large fruit salad, so that was my first food consumption of the day.

At lunch time (12:30) Victor kept his promise (from his comment on my blog) and took me to Tesco (he had read my blog post "an interview with myself" and could see 11 and 3 were my difficult times).

At Tescos I bought celery, carrots, humus, a bag of spinach & rocket, a tub of coleslaw, a lovely ripe avocado, a red sweet pepper, and my colleague gave me a pita bread to have with it. I also bought a bag of mixed nuts.

So I mixed all of that on a plate and it totally satisfied me.

At the 3 p.m. that normally stumps me, I had 2 stalks of celery with humus. I also had a handful of nuts.

Oh, when I got in, there was salad in the fridge left over from the big huge bowl of salad I made for me and husband yesterday. So I made cous cous (which is a fab trick as it takes 5 minutes). I mixed the salad and cous cous and it was so delicious.

As I have had NO BLACK TEA all day (only caffeine was the coffee on way to work) I had a mug of yogi tea tonight. As a result I feel lovely and sleepy so I think I will have a lovely early night.

Sorry above is quite a boring post, but I wanted to proudly type up that I have stuck to things for a day.

When things don't make sense, it is because... they don't!


I ended up working on Saturday morning (we had a consumer focus group with 10 of our customers). There was 1 lady throughout the session drinking from a water bottle, the contents of which were green. I went up to her at the end and said are you drinking Super Greens, to which she said yes (as there are a few brands I wasn't sure what the answer would be). Anyway, she said do you drink it. I felt shamed into saying no (I am never this size when I do). Of course she said if you know it helps you keep slimmer why don't you drink it. I said oh it is because I get up rush to work, work, and then rush home and I just don't stop and make it and drink it. She said well, if you had a tub at home and a tub at work that would soon solve that problem. Imagine her shock when I said I DO HAVE one at home and one at work. She was like, I don't want to be unkind.... but I don't understand..... She really looked perplexed....

It is so silly, when I am not drinking it, I crave rubbish food and when I am drinking it, I crave water, veg and salads. Anyway she was very slim and radiant looking and I currently am neither.

It just really struck me, that I felt totally comfortable with explaining how I don't have time to stop and think and prepare it and drink it, but when you say it OUT LOUD it sounds like complete an utter nonsense!!!!!!!! If I have time to blog..... I should have time to sort my life out toooooo (as my boss was quick to point out)........ So after I write this post, I am going to go and have a glass of Super Greens.

If you want to know more about that way of eating (which when I do it, does work) read this e-book.

Oh and then after the Customer Focus Group I had to go to a Baby Shower. We were in the garden it was such a lovely day (apart from one half hour where we temporarily went in when it rained)......

At one point, Zoe made us give a word for each of us (those of us that were colleagues).

I wrote down the words my colleagues gave me as I thought they were interesting (more self-exploration for me).
  • Zoe said I am: generous
  • Banasa said I am an open book (and that she always knows where she stands with me)
  • Taniesha said I am childlike (not sure how to take that one, but I can be very naive)
  • Anna said "loopy unique" (she elaborated by saying "down to earth and intelligent but yet somehow loopy") I'll take that one Anna (it was her baby shower) xxx
So, that's all for now, as I have to go and have my glass of greens, finally start being alkaline and make me and my wonderful husband a healthy lunch.

Those who have been reading my blog for quite some time will remember that I spent a few days being alkaline in January (before I went to Portugal) and I lost a few pounds immediately. Even though that was 6 months ago I have not done it since (yes I am my own worst enemy).

Nutrition Knowledge and Weight


Just logged on to share this article with you.

It is about how the:
lack of basic nutrition knowledge contributes to overweight and obesity.

I particularly like this paragraph:
Perhaps the answer lies in allowing everyone the right to choose their path, be it the ride down the river of denial or the jogging track to health. We should respect their reasons, be they right or wrong. Maybe we all need to pay attention to our own journey, and wish our fellow travelers well no matter what their chosen road. We can never know all the reasons someone else stumbles or fails. We can only offer compassion, and our hand to help, if they ask.

Emotion and weight loss

I am not going to write anything, as I have been stunned into silence by the eloquence of Holly ALP's post today, over at My Peace.

She talks about visiting memory lane, as if it is a place (hence the photo above). I can really relate to that as I often reflect on my biggest times and my slimmest times.

Holly take the floor...... over to you...... folks, read here.
