I shopped by trike this morning. It's so very rewarding getting shopping in this way and so much less hassle. 

What is Quaxing? Quaxing is shopping without a car. It can be by walking, bicycling, bus, or train.

An Auckland politician Dick Quax stated that "no one in the entire western world uses the train for their shopping trips" - This quickly started the quaxing hashtag (#quaxing) on Twitter by bicyclists from all over the world. It was followed by others that also shopped by walking and public transport. Usually the #quaxing is accompanied by a photograph.

Banging on about Health, Food, Exercise and Fitness

- simply puts so much pressure and worry on us that it actually makes us ill.   Too much of our lives are now spent worrying about whether we are getting the right amount of food, the right amount of exercise and the right amount of sleep that it has taken all the fun out of actually living life.  I'm truly sick to death with it.

Trying Out Using a Standing Desk

I have decided to test out using a standing up desk - Well, for me it's one of my kitchen surfaces that I have completely cleared off for the use thereof.  I'm hoping that by forcing myself to stand up and type it might stop me being on the computer so much.

Aiming for Just a 1lb a Week

I've decided that trying to get back down to the weight of 8st (112lbs) again at my age is beyond stupid, so now going to try for 8½st or 120lbs - From today's starting weight of  144lbs, I need to lose another 24lbs

I Might Take Up Knitting Again

 I might take up knitting again.  Just to keep my hands busy while watching tv in the evenings. Nothing complicated.  Rather something I can knit without looking at it so that I don't have to take my eyes off the screen.
