Not on a diet

Monday, January 17, 2011

It seems ages since I did my blog but here goes. I am once again on my diet(but I'm not calling it a diet) I am trying to be sensible and not put too much pressure on myself. I am following the Weight Watchers diet but I now have loads more to lose, I am 14 stone 1pound as of last Friday when I weighted myself at Boots. I have something to aim for as we are thinking of booking a holiday in Babbacombe in April.

Your plan seems very doable. Your possible April holiday to Babbacombe sounds lovely! We have an April holiday coming up, also. I am picturing myself happily enjoying being minus at least ten pounds by then.

I find that when I look at my goals as five-pound lots – rather than the overall ‘BIG’ picture, I do better! Those mini-five pound goals seem so much easier to achieve than say a twenty-pound goal.

Be blessed!

Merry Christmas to you all

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

I would like to wish all my friends and other emoticon people a good and healthy Christmas.
It has been a very much up and down year for me especially as I have gained weight and not lost it has I had hoped (over 14 pound and counting) the good thing is that I am still not back on the diet coke. I am going to promise myself a few things(not New Year resolutions) and those are that
I will contact my GP about the prescription exercise as they I have not been contacted yet.
I will do the exercise s that I have been given for my back by the physiotherapist.
I will do my best to eat properly and not over eat.
start a food diary.

Snow snow snow

Saturday, December 04, 2010

Well weather wise it has been an awful week and I have hardly been out, I am told it is to be with us until the new year.
It is starting to depress me as I look forward to my daily routine as it is the only time I talk to people ( Michael is low once again and I am using the library computers), I am also worried that I may not get to the hospital next Friday for my physio appointment.
I am eating quite sensibly and I have not been drinking diet coke but of course not getting any exercise is not doing me much good.

    Eating sensibly and giving up the soda is great! You may not be exercising, but those two things will contribute to you being healthier!

Back problems

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I think I may have just about got my eating under control but I am having problems with sciatica at the moment. It has got quite a lot worse over the last week or so, I am still getting out but it is taking me ages to get anywhere and I've still got a month before I see the physio.
Michael is still on the new tablets which seem to be helping a little as I he is managing to stay up a bit longer, he has gone down now but he was getting up only to go to sleep on the sofa.
The good news is I am a grandma ( friends baby) bad news she lives in Durham but I will pray that we meet one day
I don't think much of the weather at the moment as it has hardly stopped around her for the last 3 days (yesterday was slightly better), it is so depressing.

    I hope you are feeling better. I had back problems last year at this time and could hardly move. I scared my husband one day when I first had the problem and screamed from the back bedroom. [I am not in the habit of screaming.] Physical therapy helped me; I hope there is something that can help you.

    I enjoyed your blog. I also understand your pain. I have back & sciatica problems myself. But focusing on the many good things that happen makes for a better day, right? Sounds like you have some wonderful things going on. Hope your weather gets better. It is going to be sunny here in CA. emoticon

Having a good day

Saturday, October 30, 2010

It seems ages since I was last on here but my life has been running a long as usual with nothing much happening. Also we have been off line for a while as we have change our broadband and phone company.
I have been to the theatre today to see The Nutcracker by The Northern Ballet company, it was brilliant and I really enjoyed it. I had a couple of hours in town before hand so had a wonder around town and had lunch in a church cafe.
I also had my flu jab this morning, I'm glad to get that out of the way but I never have any problems.
The new tablets Michael is on seem to be helping, he was only down just over a week and he managed to stay up nearly two weeks.
I felt quite depressed in town not sure why as I knew I would enjoy the ballet, Nottingham always makes me feel tired but it was not just that.
I have booked an appointment with the physio but it is not until 10th December emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great to hear You having good days & Michael is having better days too. Sometimes taking things one day at a time helps us manage our depression better. I know it works for me as I'm not able to afford med's, so I just take breaks in time, all the while gaining confidence in myself that I can handle whatever chunk of time I've given to myself.

Still praying for you, glad you enjoyed the ballet, it's good your going out and enjoying things a little at a time.

Many Blessings Always Debby emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like you had a pretty good day. I haven't been to the ballet, but my family and I have went to the theatre several times in the past few years. We are going to see Mamma Mia in New York City in December.
