Well I just completed a challenge on here for the first time. Although I didn't reach my goal weight I lost more weight than if I hadn't done the challenge. I am marvelling at myself as at least I stuck to my guns.. I made attempts at other challenges but never did them properly. Now that the summer challenge is over I have begun to overeat and need a kick start (not a kick in the pants although that might help) to get back on track. But today was a wake up call for me. I went to relaxation class (meditation) and when we were encouraged to relax I got awful indigestion which ruined the session for me. I felt chest pains and started heating up. I kept quiet about it and at the end of the session we were asked for feedback. I said I will never eat before a relaxation class again and explained what had happened. The teacher agreed with me & said she never eats before yoga as well. I'd eaten a cheese and tomato sandwich & blame the cheese for creating the gases and my chest pain. I got home and pottered about and the pains left thank goodness. I always exagerate whatever happens to me assuming it could be my heart because in my youth I witnessed my father's fatal heart attack. He was only 47, and that happened 49 years ago. If that isn't a reason for healthy living I don't know what is. According to my GP there's nothing wrong with me except for high blood pressure which is going down thanks to following my healthy eating and exercise programme.
Tomorrow is another day and the word that comes to mind is Focus something I appear to have done in completing the summer challenge.

    I understand, it is hard to focus all the time but when you KNOW some stuff is not in your best interest it's wisest not to have it in the house. I have loads of fruit around and have that as often as possible.
    Having said that, I still have "eyes bigger than my belly" and enjoy seeing my plate piled high with my dinner, so I'm no saint!
    How does Wed 12th look for a meet?

    Life does through us curve balls doesnt it - I get those same pains and often think it is my heart - to the extent that there have been times hubby has taken me to the hospitbal due to how bad they were only to find out it was a bad case of gas. So now when I have it happen a take a gax x and wait for 45 minutes to see what happens and low and behold it goes away - but am learning what foods do this to me - need to stay away from them.

    Have a great day - keep on keeping on and you will get to where you want to me
