Hiya Lara, great idea, that page is in need of an update! I've not explored much in terms of websites - most of the reading I've done and useful info I've found has been from books so far - here's some of the ones that have been helpful: http://www.dietgirl.org/dietgirl/2011/08/mindful-intuitive-andor-just-plain-helpful-books.html Aside from that here are some of my friends that blog on this kind of thing: maraglatzel.com kclanderson.com christieinge.com I've read a couple more good books lately so I'll need to write about those soon too :)

thank you for your comments folks! @Learningtolove - wow :) thank you very much and dude those archives must have taken ages! I really appreciate your kind words! @flora - it is indeed a goodun, just very uncluttered! and of course, the barcode scanner ;) @Shauntay - OMG so glad you liked Zumba! and top work on your races! PJ Geek - basically i have pretty much the same brekkie (yogurt/oats/fruit/seeds or nuts or blob of nut butter) & same lunch (salad) - I switch around the fruit or the nuts or the kinds of veggies/protein/salad dressing but by simpifying those two meals there's less decisions to be made! the key is to make em TASTY so you look fwd to em! :)

Sunitaaaaaa! I was so chuffed to see your signup yesterday, really looking forward to the next 10k group :) Wow I love the idea of a post-Crimbo race, no lolling around on the couch for you! Would you believe I bought a Fitbit in June - Erin from our current 5K group was posting pics of the graphs and I had to get my mitts on such a nerdly thing! I am loving it so far :) @Pam - good on you for getting back into it! A little puppy must be a great incentive... aww! @Johanna - thanks comrade. Slow and steady, I'll get there :)
