HI all,

I managed to workout this afternoon, ensuring that I hadn't over exaggerated in my workout, and not to overdo things either.


Just to let on here know, and please rest assured that I'm alright, and very well, mental health wise, no problems to be forcast, that i plan to retire for the night tomorrow, earlier than usual. I plan to be out during the day tomorrow, to a shopping centre, long distance, in the North West of London, and by going to bed earlier, one hopes, going to bed earlier, I'll be able to be up and about earlier on Tuesday, for getting to the zumba gold group, in time for the class, at 9.30am. Which by th eway, I am really looking forward to trialing the class and teacher are brand new, and I'll be brand new for that set up of class.


On Thursday, all being well, health, and physical health well, and weather permitting, I'll be attending fitness dance session, within my day centre branch, that will be from 2pm, so I won't have to rush out, in the morning. This is a once a month stint.


i hope next to be working out, tomorrow, otherwise, Wednesday in at home.

Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi all,


I've had a bad back today, so therefore, I can't quite see me, getting to zumba gold, tomorrow.

I'll aim for another week.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


My back has become much easier, however guess what? My sinuses have flared up, what with this miserable wet weather, and dullness.


Roll on for the certain heatwave, whenever that might materalise, again, which apparently is being currently predicted.

Hi all,


I'm alright. I have a health problem situation via my father further at the moment, so I don't feel I can manage zumba gold, tomorrow morning, he might need my assistance, and before mother returns back to upstairs after a length of time downstairs, after their breakfast.


I have the fitness session, on Thursday, so here's hoping, I'll attend that ok. Just. Depends what happens with father, when he's at private hospital visitation, on Wednesday night. It is an evening clinic session.

HI all,


I felt, that as I'm not feeling physically well at the moment, and in fact, I've just taken a supplement dose to help me out with that regular routine side of things, build up to, I decided, I won't go to zumba gold tomorrow, I can't face travelling for one at the moment so early on in the morning also.

Hopefully, and I am thinking early September when also, it might be much cooler to workout in a church hall for one thing as well, I'll await until then.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,

Owing to a fall I had yesterday, and I am just very achy still at pr esent, I don't into plan to workout and when I do plan to workout, I'll do a test workout for 12 mins, just to ensure I have everything in working manageable order. If fine, and happier, non pain wise, I'll proceed to extend a workout in to an hour.

My dieting is ok, I haven't gone mad above overboard and overate, I haven't done that for a coupel of weeks.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI all,


I'm coming along nicely now, following on from my fall.


I have still been aching in a couple of places about me, they have now improved greatly. Another couple of days, and I should all return to normal old usual self.


Officially, I'm looking to do a test and actual workout within on Tuesday, allowing not to overdo things in the first instance.


Hopefully, tomorrow, I'll get a pain relieving gel, for rubbing onto my leg. That's still a bit painful from the fall.


Overall, I'm greatly improving.


Mental health wise, szchophrenia based conditions, nope, no problems there to report.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.

HI all,


I have only just today realised, and also discovering, that the reason why I had been very painful, via the motion of sitting down, and not due to entirely to the fall, I've had a couple of boils brewed up in one area.


i have just made a paracetamol. I took earlier also a dose of anti virus remedy, and I'll repeat this at bedtime, resuming again, tomorrow morning, for three times a day just as a precaution. I'll also tomorrow will take 1 dose of anti inflammatory to relieve from the acute pain if need be.

Otherwise, apart from that, I have recovered well from the fall.


I don't intend on working out not until at least Tuesday, or Wednesday.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.

HI all,


I'm feeling very much better following on from my fall, and also a couple of boil infections.


I thought I would try and bought a couple of packs of dieiting snack bars, however and I hadn't realised this, there of high fibre content, and high fibre disagrees with me entirely. So I'll stick with the bars I'll prefer and they are the Protein sort, consisiting of nuts. These nut bars are less sugar, less gluten.


i am hoping that Tuesday, I'll return to resume fitness working out.


Have a good day all,


Natalie.

By the way, thanks very much sunset, this is really enouraging.

HI all,

I am very much better - a combination of fall very painful and a couple of boils on the top part of my leg.


I am hoping now, tomorrow might be a bit soon, that on Tuesday, earlier in th emorning, I'll resume working out, I shall only do a short test workout, within a workout, anad if all is well, I'll build up gradually on Wednesday.


Thankfully, now i realise the hard way, I must have been feeling anxious and stressed this previous present week, what with the arthritic leg of dad's, that I had one too many of the high fibre cereal bars. Anyway, as things are seemingly progressing for dad now, and I am much better, I'll know to keep, to only 1 per per day of the high firbre cereal snack bar.


I have now righted, back to normal.


Also, I am less stressed, less anxiosu, less irritible.


I am looking forward hopefully, to attending an energizing exercise session, in my day centre, locally near me, well about an half horu bus ride, on the 14th August, and also the zumba gold class, on Saturday 9th, coming up.



Have a good evening all,



Natalie.

HI all,


The novelty of the painkillers must have wore off, anyway I have rubbed gel onto the affected painful area about me, therefore, I can't think about exercising for this week, as I still am painful, slightly now, in the motion of sitting down, and slightly getting up from sitting down.


I shouldn't like to think about chair base fitness yet a while as that certainly does involve sitting work in a chair, so whilst I have this pain, slightly, I'll pass on that fitness method. I don't think it's the case of the GP in this instance, because I am very much better than I was once, with the pains, in this region, and I think it's just the question of healing in time. I just feel very annoyed that the fall happened, then, well, it was an accident, in at home, and I didn't know I was going to have a fall.


I don't think I'll jump too quick, at attending a high explosive energetic dance class, next week, for the first term either, so I'll hang on, and go to the next term. That will be a very long wait.


Meanwhile, a new programme of activiities in my care and community centre should be coming out soon, and I am in the throes of trying to find out if there will be tasters, of brand new exercise sessions, coming up, once I know, I can then hopefully, depending on this slight pain, I can then plan. The tasters are always held in September for a first brand new year of brand new exercise sessions. Sometimes, these are on trial, because we don't know how successful, the brand new classes might be.


In terms of the exercise session, which can be done low impact, I'll see how I am on Wednesday next week, for Thursday's session.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.

HI all,


I still have the problem of slight pain, inthe motion of th eregion area of sitting down, it's not so bad as it once was. I am allowing a full week, and over the next weekend, for a full recovery, following on from the fall.

So therefore, I shan't workout yet a while.


My dieting is still under ocntrol, certainly haven't overeaten. My dieting is manageable.


Hopefully, tomorrow, I shall be out, to take part in my care and community centre's Karoke for their elder members to enjoy, session. I don't wish to say too much about the song I have in mind, as it might not be in the song set list, hopefully though, it will be.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.

HI all,


I would have been ok, thsi evening, except recovering well from the fall still, my left leg, and I had a boil infection there, on the surrounding area part, it was itching me something chronic, anyway, I've just had a bath, with softeniing lotion to soften the body, it's a specialised lotion, prescribed, and I have put from the same range, cream on that area. It feels much better now.


Otherwise, I am getting there, time being a natural healer as they say.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.
