Hi all,


As I have now manged to lost some weight, and I don't wish to regain, either, I decided, that i'll revise my menu ordering. Instead of chicken and sweet potatoes, I'm going to order, Cannelloni, as i just don't wish for a meat based meal, anyway.

I have done my workout this morning, and I am ok, and am feeling alright, in fact I am de-stressed now, and I am feeling happier and also feeling happier for my strong admirer. I always know that a workout creates endorphins, which in turn create happiness. And I am always very happy along side of my strong admirer.

I am looking forward to trialing the class on Tuesday, depending on aftermath, if any of weather permitting.

As always for mind off food so to speak, listening to music, and needleworking.

HI all,


Now that I have dropped down to 9 and 3 quarters below 10st, I am feeling much happier in myself.

I was feeling stressed out last night, during the evening, for a couple of reasons, indirectly and directly to do with me, so I thought right, I'll workout, and I am now so much more better, destressed.

I happened to have been up and about earlier today, I'll do a workout - tradtiional aerobics, low impact, soon.


I just had a sandwich for my meal, last night, regarding the lunch out, meal, earlier on in the day.

I had chicken escalope, and sweet potato fries. Diet coke to drink.

Hi all,


I decided, that as I'll be travelling long local distance tomorrow, and then to attend to trial a fitness group,

I thought that I won't workout today.saving/storing my energies for tomorrow.

As I shan't be volunteering in the afternoon afterwards, I thought that I'll have a more lesiurely lunch and not so much of a hurry, ah, even though for this week, tomorrow, only, they''ll close up every where within at 2pm. In time for a religious sector festival.

Apart from on Friday, or Thursday, I ate just a bit too much, I've returned to my normal non eating in between meal times statuses - nothing in betweenm meals.

HI all,


I have just done a workout. I am always feeling more fitter and more toned up after having worked out.

I have been feeling very low and irritible, the past few days, in particular, with rembrants in home following on from a burst water main. And dull weather combined as well, just to add insult to irritible injury.


For my evening meal, last night, we had salt beef, and I had a baked/jacket potato on side, and we had mix vegetables as well.


Hopefully, all being well, fitness class shall be on next Tuesday.

Hi all,


My head's unwell at the moment. Combination of everything I think, sinuses, psorasis, and a original lumpy boil problem area, being on bone, the boil can't sufficiently clear, or as of yet, so I get excruitating head pain.

Plus, also, slightly irritible. Szchophrenia conditions are fine, very well, it's just the head pain I'm experiencing, at this present time.

HI all,


I'm very much pain free, the paracetaml as i would have thought, has done its job, and also I am not feeling hardly irritible.


Been otherwise occupied in at home, shortly though, I do intend on listening to music, and needleworking.

Once again, I'm very much better.

i forgot to add, I have used my nasal spray too.

Hi all,


I think I am mainintaining my current weight loss very well, I have cut down on baked/jacket potatoes, and having more sub style sandwiches for lunch, one per meal, or sometimes if mum isn't making very much evening meal wise, I might double up on the same day and another sub style, I have cut down on bread intake, and peanut butter filled sandwiches in between meals, and I am keeping tabs on mychoclate in take.


Not going to class tomorrow, very warm, I'll wait until cooler, for on Tuesday morning.


In the meantime, I hope I'll be gettin a in home workout done, short workouts, to my fitness dvds, and not chair based, I'm very much better leg wise, now.


Once the volunteering gets under way after Tuesday forthcoming on a regular basis, that will also help me to take mind off from the food side of things. When I am in my care and community centre, i always aim to have a healthier vegetarian non meat, which is the remit cause anyway, non meat, lunches.


I am planning to have green tea drinks, one on the odd occasion, however not every so often, I find that has an impact of too much detoxing for me, in that respect. I'll drink more water, and more 1 or 2 cups a day of blackcurrant drink. Don't like orange or lemon squash, never have.


Mypsorasis is under control now, and I am irritiblity wise very much better through the psoarsis. It's genetically directed, it's nothing to do with food diet habits. That much I know.


I've gone blank. Mind wise preparing this post.


I'll sign off now, and I'll update hopefully if i remember to, late next week. Mid week sorry.



Have a good Friday night all, and week ahead,


Natalie.

HI all,


I haven't been well, this early afternoon, i feel from the heat, I've had a terrible painful headache, and also via my sinuses, and original healed thouigh lump (still there - lump wise) problem of boil, mother has the same similar problem to me, being on the bony part of head, the boils can't suffienciently clear, apologies regardingmy spelling.


I have just made and taken a dose of panadol actifast. (i thought; having name dropped earlier, for another thread in particular, i might as well continue to name drop the type of painkiller preferred line).


I hope to get attending to class workout on Tuesday morning, perhaps it might then be somewhat much cooler. They do have air condiitoning there, for within the building premises.


i just can't wait to get to volunteering for my assisting with computer project, Tuesday afternoon.
What I am planning is, just in case, I have another bout of headaches, I'll have a sachet of painkiller with me on standby. I'm not necessarily looking for headaches to occur, I am just acting in half preparation and caution.


Today, I have had cereal for breakfast, and a tuna on baked/jacket potato for lunch.


I have had a blackcurrant drink 1 glass, of, and drinking non aspartame, non sugar caffiene based drink to keep me much more alert in my waking hours, of the day. I remember that previosuly hear of, I was like a zombie, on Onlanzapine, and slept virtually until either 11am, or much later on on the day.


Have a good Saturday all,


Natalie.

HI All,


I'm very well, except my psorasis, was very annoyingly acting up last night. I had to put on much more application to settle it all down. I'm finer this earlier morning.


I have decided, not to go to zumba gold today, cause of reason holiday next week, and I'll be very tempted to go back weekly for more. I'll await until after the holiday.


I am still cutting back and down on bread sandwches, packets of choclate, which is my worst type of comfort food eating particularly when it comes to feeling low and rotten, maybe to do with any external factors outsdie of at home, and potentially bad wet weather just afterwards, or throughout;

cutting down on baked jacket potatoes; certainly not with too much more tuna, due to the mercury compoent problems, and for my lunches, having more sub style sandwiches, via with homemade tuna.


Still consuming non aspartame, no sugar, cola to keep awake, ah even though i am on a less sedative med, when it was the cause of Olanzpaine nearly years ago, it would always very much have me zombiefied, and keepign asleep all day, virtually, so I felt oh no, couldn't have t hat, so, on top of Abilify, i have cola, diet cola, due to problems with sugar, and the diabetes effect, i have to be monitored closely, due to my father being on med due to diabetes, though does run in his side of family; I only have the problem of boils,


I am having blackurrant to drink, and maybe only 1 or 2 glasses a day, and preferably at a meal time.


I forgot to add, i've now switched to having a healthier kind of cereal type of busicuit, I don't have the other sugary sort anymore, and the problems combined with molasses as well, so I prefer less sugary ingrediants based.


I have felt that I feel, I'll go to teh fitness group again, only I am busier with the holiday and i have volunteering for a morning, just after the holiday, so I'aim for a couple of weeks after we're back, i'll have avaialibty then.


These days, we tend to aim for vegetarian non meat meals in the evening at home, have been, though just recently, due to the hotter weather, we have been having cold meat and salad based meals.

Due to the hotter weather, mum doesn't wish to have the ovens or grills on. So I'll just make do happily with sub style sandwiches, and also quorn based meal main courses for meals in at home, les and less jacket potatoes preferably.



To enable me to take my mind off food intake, I still do my needleworking or knitting, and with music, musicals listening combined.

I still plan to carry out volunteering ad hoc duties, at various organisations in my religious sector, in which I help. and volunteering reeps benefits, and rewarding, and very theraputic.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


I am very much looking forward to getting to the zumba gold to trial, group it's a brand new group, on Tuesday next week.


I have a sneaky feeling, that the current 2nd aftermath of hurricane, which will hit UK, this weekend, has caused me to aim for my comofrt fooding - packets of choclate, feeling irritible, in other words; hopefully, once this hurrican aftermath has passed, I should then feel better, and reduce down, on the choclatety side of things.


From September onwards, and if I fair the class ok, next Tuesday, and the class choreogrpahy fairs me, ok, I shall make a point of going to that one, regularly on a weekly basis, and also my other class attendances on Saturday mornings, the Saturday ones shall return on September 9th.


To enable me to take my mind off food, full t ime so to speak, I am needleworking at the moment - cross stitching, and listening to music combined.


In the mean time also hopefully, I'll get the odd in home workout done .


To enable me to take my mind off food further, again, full time so to speak, I am just awaiting for the volunteering season, to pick up, from September or late August onwards, as long as I am always pre occupied with volunteering and travel to and from, my mind is then off, well, food.


i have greatly cut back and down, on bread sadnwiches of peanut butter, and am endeavouring to reduce the number of baked/jacket potatoes, as i say, this current aftermath of hurricane number 2 is getting me down at the moment, so I am aiming for my comfort food - jackets another sort for that.


I am hoping that within the next couple of weeks, the weather shall improve - and, so will I!


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


At the moment, I have a painful knee, following on from infection. The infections is still clearing.


Strangely, though I have been low and irriitble this week, today, I haven't been too bad, at aiming for comfort food such as packets of chcolate.


I had a baked/jacket potato with tuna for lunch, and a sub style sandwich for my evening meal.


I'm not going to be able to feel, to do my chair base fitness workout today, not this evening. I am hoping on Sunday, I'll workout then, normal workouit.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


I happened to have made a green tea drink this evening, so I'll note when I happen to be weighed tomorrow, in comparison to last week, whether if i could have lost some more weight.


I intend to be working out sometime on Sunday, and t his time, I'll extend the workout of traditional aerobics, and aslo might throw in some group exercise salsa dvd workouts.


Looking forward to hopefully trialing class of zumba gold, on Tuesday morning.



Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


My weight has gone up slightly. I think, owing to the rotten weather build up for yesterday, I was feeling low and irritible, and threfore, aiming for comfort food.


I am hoping that with some better weather now, in store for London, my comfort food intake shall then reduce and return to normal statuses.


I am hoping to workout, tomorrow, at some point.
