May already!

Friday, May 01, 2015      4 comments

Don't know where the last couple of months have disappeared to! It's been really hard going for me and I fell off the wagon big time and found it really hard to get back on track again. Normally speaking once I get back on track and stick with i... Read more

Continuing saga!

Well, I got round to my son's house on Friday to get on with scrubbing as much of the black mould off his walls as possible. It took three hours, and in the end, I had to scrape the mould off back to the plaster. The builder was there to put air... Read more

On Monday I went to check out my sons house. He is now working in London and rents it out and the tenant has refused to pay his rent for 2 months and has complained the house is uninhabitable. We were awarethat there has been a problem with the ... Read more

February already!

Today I had planned to spend the morning preparing dinner for my in-laws. I wasn't looking forward to it as my brother & sister-in-law are very critical, amazing cooks, and have told DH they believe my weight problem is caused by binging. It isn... Read more

Last week I watched the BBC Horizon research programme "What's the right diet for you?" and then downloaded the ebook which followed. It was full of information which I already know and some I didn't, but everything was backed by research. For e... Read more

I'm feeling much better today, thank goodness. The coughing attacks are very much less frequent and I was able to get a lot done. Shopping this morning to buy a jumper for my grandson. My sister-in-law knitted one for me, but it was far too smal... Read more

It's been 5 nights night since I have slept through. I don't normally get coughs and I could count on one hand the times I have had a cold over the last 40 odd years. It seems to have struck now and I am having to live each days as it comes. I'l... Read more

Monday : stayed on track with nutrition, went to 45 minute SitFit class with my sister. She's amazing. This time 15 months ago I was really worried about my sister's health as she was becoming increasingly disabled. Now she has lost over 100 pou... Read more

Wake up call!

Monday, December 01, 2014      8 comments

It's December already and I have, to my shame, done nothing about the weight creeping back on. Now is the time to get that in reverse. No matter what stresses there are in life, and what excuses I can think of to get out of exercising properly, ... Read more

DH had further tests at the hospital this week and it turns out his anaemia is caused by diverticulosis. Thank goodness it isn't cancer, which is what the consultant at the hospital though it might be. He'll be visiting the doctor next week and ... Read more

Back home now. Two buses and a flight from Germany and then 3 trains home from the airport. Nightmare! The second train was so full my rucksack got caught in the door and we were squashed in like sardines, standing room only for the 15 minute jo... Read more

DH had his endoscopy this afternoon and they found nothing nasty, but he did have a phyrangial flap, which is probably what is causing the problems with swallowing. They took biopsies and it will be up to 3 weeks before the results will be throu... Read more

My new start seems to have fallen by wayside as things have been difficult these last few weeks. DH seemed to have reacted badly to the flu jab, but it proved to be the new medication he was allergic to - at least in part. He stopped taking the ... Read more

Saturday was hard going. Finished at 6.30 and spent the evening clearing up, getting a meal and then chilling in front of the TV and laptop. Just about got in my 5,000 step. Sunday has been more energetic with shopping for the week in the m... Read more
