Boring fibromyalgia
Friday, November 05, 2010      2 comments

Not sure if the flu-like symptoms I've been experiencing for weeks are actually a flu-like illness or fibromyalgia. One thing I am sure of is that I am really bored with feeling light-headed, sleepy, snotty, and having to put a hold on exercise ... Read more
What we eat affects what we eat
Monday, September 06, 2010      3 comments

There is evidence to suggest that out bodies crave nutrients and that by eating nutrient deficient foods, we are setting ourselves up for weight gain as our bodies tell us we aren't getting enough of something. We can easily go over our calories... Read more
Positive people - get off my back, you monkey!
Thursday, September 02, 2010      9 comments

I need to blog this because I don't think it would be fair to post it to the message boards. I think that there is a lot of smugness and hooha written on the subject of 'positive people'. While I have known some truly happy people, they hav... Read more

The tight and twanging muscles are not getting better with stretching (don't you just love the fibromyalgia?) so I am investigating 'trigger points' using 'The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook' (if I got that wrong I'll correct it soon). I have al... Read more
Fibro 'twang'
Monday, August 23, 2010      3 comments

Muscles and tendons are 'twangy' all over (fibro thing). I think that as I loosen my muscles and gain strength, certain problems are becoming noticable. I have been barely mobile for the last few years so need to really work on getting the muscl... Read more
No loss this week, but look...
Sunday, August 22, 2010      2 comments

I got muscles! I have been showing off my calf muscles this week so I'm not really surprised that the scales didn't show a loss. I can feel muscle tissue that is building in other places under the extra padding too. It doesn't show yet, but... Read more
End of the first month
Sunday, August 15, 2010      2 comments

Despite the ups and downs of the last month I am very pleased to see that I am on target for my weight loss goals. Today I reluctantly weighed myself, logged the number and went right away to see my little fairy move along the cute little tracke... Read more
Fibro week
Saturday, July 31, 2010      3 comments

This last week has been very bumpy with a 'minor' flare of fibromyalgia symptoms - pains and moods - so I have been a little off plan, but feel better for it. I had found myself getting a little hyper from cardio (I'd noticed that before in othe... Read more

I thought it would be a good idea to keep track of what is happening to me regarding the fibromyalgia to better see what helps and what doesn't and to keep track of my health generally. My bloods came back and show normal kidney and liver func... Read more
Wobbly times
Sunday, July 18, 2010      3 comments

My wobble cushion arrived yesterday so I now have it on my seat. This will increase the number of different exercises I can do, esp. core exercises to target my flabby middle muscles. I am already starting to feel that the ab and leg muscles hav... Read more
Food, glorious food pt. 1 - The return of the appetite
Saturday, July 17, 2010      0 comments

I had a couple of days of feeling unwell with very little appetitie and was below calorie etc. target levels. Today I ate what I fancied and although I went over a little, I think I needed it as I was feeling tired and miserable before. I was wo... Read more
Drowning from drinking
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      2 comments

I have been working at getting the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, but was having difficulty. Strolling through the message boards, I find that I am not the only one. I have been finding myself feeling like a big, squishy water balloon a... Read more
Resetting settings
Monday, July 12, 2010      3 comments

I realised that by not setting weight loss targets, the programme was not going to allow me to do what I wanted to. I thought I would give myself a gentle introduction and would change the goals after a week, but I had to restart the whole thing... Read more
First proper week
Saturday, July 10, 2010      0 comments

Weekly weigh in shows a gain of 2kg, but that is probably due to muscle developing or water. I feel generally a little fitter and i'm working hard to try to get a good nutritional balance. I checked out the meal plans, but they are not suitab... Read more
