Hi Evening Folks,

I had slept very very well overnighter, waking upon 6.45am. I was asleep continously, apart f rom up and about only maybe for a very short once.

I am going to be doing, and depending on what sort of time I am up tomorrow, and waybefore I go out to volunteer, and travel, my lower impact of group salsacise dvd workout. I don't wish to do anything too mad, before going out, and then to get the typing volunteering done.


Then I hope to be working out properly low impact aerobics, and or also dance aerobics, later on on Wednesday in the late morning or earlier aft ernoon. I know, that depending on weather, parents might be out, so I have availability of the living room.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

Today, my head has been very painful. It was a bit of sinuses, i realised that it was my psorasis.

I've put on my scalp liquid application to settle down the psorasis at the moment painful condition.

HI, Morning Folks,

I felt, that I didn't want to do a mad, too energetic, and strenuous workout for the weekend s tart up, so, instead I have just completed my group low impact salsacise workout dvd.


I might have gone above board, this week, and overate, a bit too much meaning in between meals, and apart from also af ternoon tea, t his is due to suddenly learning my strong mutual admirer, is temporary working away, in my chairtible main base, where I volunteer, offsite at another location for the next 1 or 2 weeks or so.

I'll go careful with my dieting today, and do my low impact salsacise workout again, hopefully tomorow, otherwise, earlier week.

Best regards all,

Natalie.

HI Folks,


I am hoping that tomorrow, in the earlier morning, I'll get my dancier workout done.


Unfortunately, my weight went up somewhat, almost on 10st. I knew what would happen, weight management wise, since my strong mutual admirer, has been temporarily working offisite and in a location where normally we are both based, and I volunteer, and occaisonally attend exercise groups, he's been offisite for 1 week, and has 1 or 2 more weeks to go.

i knew I would end up, maybe having more than the usual amount of peanut butter sandwiches, or a few too many jacket potatos.

So it is my intension to; cut back and down on normal bread or crackers with peanut butter,
lower the amount of choclate pieces packs as well (this weather inNorth London, hasn't been at all of help, for this)

Drink much more water, and limit maybe blackcurrant squash drinks to twice a day with added water.

Have more vegetarian within home, for either heating up in grill, on grill, or ready meals vegetarain, for cooking in microwave. Probably for on grill, for lunchtimes, in at home.

Increase the amount across the week, to have fr om pots of fruit jelly, t his is jelly by the way, not jelo or jam, for our American readers.

Limit the amount of cookies, bought f rom supermarkets.

Now I'm half hoping, and that certainly by the time, my strong mutual admirer, would have returned back, to our base, where he is based working normally, and combined also with r egular working out to fitness dvds, by the way, I should then be back on track, via my exercise and diet management.

When he is normally based, in our location, normally, he provides such a overwhelmed happier effect within me, that is also giving me, positive dieting effects, too. Only i ah, had no idea, completely in the dark, he was going to then be temporarily working offsite, and i discovered, through a volunteer co-ordinator of mine, there, about that.

Generally though as well, I do wish to reduce my weight, not just regarding my s trong mutual admirer.

Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Afternoon, Folks,

I couldn't feel for cereal, at breakfast this morning, I had a no added sugar, based, peanut butter sandwich;

lunch - for today, I had t una sub with a couple of salady items, and also I had a water drink.

Snack; an hour before lunch well half an hour before; a packet of flavoured crisps.


Tonight will p robably be a fish/vegetarian night, we had a meat meal last night parents and myself, and I'll aim for a quorn fillet to make on the grill.


I might get a workout done, from about 2.30pm, my parents have gone out shopping at a long haul distance location, in London, and I don't know just yet, if I'll maange one, otherwise, chair fitness later on today.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi All,

Owing to this in London, bitterly colder weather, ouch for the following, my sinuses haven't been happier today. So therefore, I've had to taken a painkiller to h elp knock off the rembrants of pains from the sinuses.

i shall certainly try to keep warm tomorrow, thouigh I have a funny sneaking feeling that should the weather keep off, I'll have to collect my new reader glasses, and we can't drive to North Finchley, there isn't virtually any parking there, so means, busing over and back to and from my home.

On the ot her hand though, should it snow, that will help me out for tomorrow, not to be out in the bitterly cold, act of weather. I have my sinuses after all to contend with.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I'm much better however, it wasn't the causes of sinuses, no, I had a couple of original revised, and a new boil, giving me pain. I might have had slight sinuses at my tooth area though.

Anyway, having taken the painkiller, which was a good couple of hours ago, I am much much better now.


Judging by how well I have been sleeping of recent, I can't plan to normally workout, so, I'll plan to get going with my chair fitness workouts for later on on days, instead.

Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I slept very well overnight. Therefore, I couldn't workout. I might do my chair fitness later on, today.

Today I have had cerea for b reakfast. I haven't had a hot drink yet, I'll sort that, it will be blackcurrant flavour.


Lunch; I'm intending on getting a tuna sub.

I'm not due to weigh, until Saturday.
Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

Due to t ravel to and from home and optical place this afternoon, which phew! I can relax down now i have my newer pair of reader glasses, I am slightly weaker eyesight reading wise, at my left eye, strangely stronger via my right, this is without glasses on. I have been very very tired, so therefore, I couldn't manage to do a chair fitness workout.

I'm in tomorrow due to the weather, so hopefully, I'll do a c hair fitness stint, earlier evening.


For my meal this evening, I had a flavour of instant suitable for vegetarian, chicken with croutons soup, then much later, the remainder of a half of jacket potato, with melted cheese on, oriignally was tuna based potato.

If I do happen to be up earlier morning, tomorrow, I'll do a normal workout, 5/5.30am.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

well, the temperatures have been riidicolous this week. It has been far too cold, and I have had aches and pains up, so I'm not able to implement chair fitness at the moment.

However, the temperatures are deemed to improve earlier next week, so I'll plan to implement chair fitness, then.

Overall, my dieting has been going well, basically cutting back and down on sandwiches, and subs, also jacket potatos, increasing more grilled vegetarian ready meals, to simply heat up on the grill.
Or microwave.

I'm beginning to have intakes of water only in my diet, I had one glass of drink of water, this earlier evening.

I now buy healthier cereal bars, which are far better than, normal cereal bars, which are full of sugar. I have had the late afternoon, apple sauce, with low sugar granola.

Should I happen to be up earlier tomorrow, morning, I might do a normal workout, from 5 or 5.30am. or 6 am even.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Afternoon Folks,

I'm very much better in terms of ano ther boil, via my head, and I also had sinsues up, in which I used my sea water based nasal spray a couple of spaced out doses, and also I took a dose of Sudafed liquid. My GP confirmed i can have a little, at a time of Sudafed, even thouhg I take Abilify, and I do on occasions suffer quite terrible sinuses pains, via damp/wetter or colder weather.


I'm not working out at the moment, far too cold, not even for my chair fitness workout.and I'll await until when it's much milder. Which I believe, will mid week forthcoming.


I'm not volunteering, until mid or early March. I have a task I am aware about for the moment, which is in hand beyond my control, so when that will be ready, I'll know to arrange when to be in at my main base for helping.


I am back to taking 25ml of med again, I had been on 20ml, for over just about a week, and I had a couple of heard voices up, Friday; I felt, I couldn't have an evening of more voices, so I thought right.


I have been far better on 25ml. I don't intend, happily and annoyingly not to drop back from 25ml for a long time yet. Maybe not at all.

Best regards all,


Natalie.
