Must get back on track

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

I really want to get back on track but not sure where to start, last time I saw my GP she said not to worry about my weight as I was (and still am) feeling very low, only trouble is with her saying that I am sure I have been nibbling emoticon and pecking more. I seem to do alright in the day but come evening(especially if Michael is down) I seem to eat loads and this is not good, I have been drinking more water (with cordial) as it has been so hot. I have also been having more trouble with sciatica so I am not walking emoticon so much.

    Whenever I get in a bad rut and need to start getting back on track, I do the following things:
- drink lots of water
- eat breakfast (this is so easy for me to skip but it really helps curb my cravings for the day)
- plan my meals for the day
- use a smaller plate to control portion sizes
- get sleep!

Best of luck!

    I am also a very likely suspect in any crimes of late-night eating....I like to save 100 calories a day for 1/2 a serving of pretzels or something before bed. Sorry to hear about your sciatica....best wishes through these hard times!

I've been away

Monday, July 05, 2010

We have recently been away for 5 days to Cornwall(will post photos when he downloads them), I really enjoyed but Michael had to pick lots of faults as normal so I tried not to notice to much, his main gripe was spending money.
The holiday hotel was in Newquay and there was a trip out everyday(was a bit to much), I enjoyed going round the galleries and there was some beautiful paintings, the weather was fantastic.
The last time I saw my GP she said not too worry about my weight to much as I was telling her about Michael and How stressed I felt, she has changed my tablets and they seem to be helping.
The problem is I seem to be eating more since she told me not to worry and this is worrying me even more so I am going to try and get back on track once again, my diet is not bad I just eat too much of the good stuff, I like eating salads but my main downfall is bread so I try not to buy it very often. Hope this all makes sence

    Glad you had a good vacation. It's hard to stop eating sometimes, even when it's good stuff.

I went to to the doctors yesterday, it was supposed to be Friday but for some reason it was changed. She is changing my tablets and I also talked about my weight(she knows I am trying to lose weight) but she told me not to worry about it too much so I am just trying to eat sensibly.
I made up the bangle I brought at last weeks craft show with an Indian style pattern papers and looks great.
I am quite please with a coat I got from the charity shop, It was priced at 3 but after a friendly banter it was 2 and it turned out to be new, yesterday I took a bag of clothes in to thank them, I do usually quite a bit in the shop but it is usually books and magazines.

Good weekend

Monday, June 14, 2010

We had a lovely weekend, me, Michael and two friends went to Chatsworth House for a bus rally, me and our friend Des spent Quite a lot of time in Bakewell(free buses running) where we all had a meal and me and Des went to a craft fair, I also brought a lovely new M&S jumper from a charity shop. We also went to visit the church and village of Edensor. The weather was fairly good, it did rain a little in the morning but then stayed off until about 3.30.
I am feeling very tired after so many busy days together and also very low but I am seeing our GP on Friday and she is going to change my tablets. Hopefully after that I can get back on track with losing weight . emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fantastic day

Thursday, June 10, 2010

I have the best day possible. The craft group went on a trip to a art and craft fair and we had a great day there, there was over 200 stall with displays and demos and the best to me was a stall called Decopatch ( www.thedecopatchplace.co.uk ) it is a fascinating craft and a great thing for recycling and I also brought some wool to make a hat(pure new wool).
I have some great news I am going on holiday to Newquay in Cornwall, it is for 4 days and will really help me. I have been feeling so tired and very low so it will be good.
Sunday is the Chatsworth bus running day so hope the weather picks up as today has been very drizzly emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you have had a great day!
I love Cornwall and should be going later in the year so have a great time in Newquay - when are you going? Soon I hope?

And I will wish for sunshine for you on Sunday. couple of weeks ago I spent my Birthday in a place called Peak Forest just outside Buxton - we drove through Chatsworth estate to ge there - it is so beautiful.

Have a great week end and enjoy knitting (?) your hat. I tried to open the decopatch link but couldn;t get it to work - I think it's my computer not working right this morning.
