Hi Evening Folks,

Seemingly working ok now, via in Google Chrome, I'll keep a watch on it.

Now that in due course, my strong mutual admirer should either be back to my location, and where he is normally based paid work wise, either this forthcoming, or the following week, hopefully and all being well, I should be able to resume my normal careful and fitness working out dieting back on track.

i do intend on cutting back and down on packs of pieces of chocolate, not so much of no added sugar peanut butter normal bread sandwiches, to continue on purchasing and having one a day of healthier cereal bars, more cereal portions in a dish to have at breakfast time, daily, (by the my dietary listing might be all muddled up and not in order) to have more or when convenient to do so as I could be out volunteering this next week, vegetarian, non meat ready meals in at home, and to cut back and down, on baked/jacket potatoes, and subs.


To implement, to have water at meal times, for evening meals, on a days on of when not volunteering the day after, to make and have green tea drink, (or drinks) and have black currant squash, once or twice a day. Still keeping to cola diet, no sugar, drinks, for keeping me alert for on daytime and evening times of days, not too much colas, for during evening times.


I do intend to implement more chair fitness based workouts, that if and when i know, I'll sleep very well overnight, and haven't got much time to workout, or too late in being up and about , either a bit before parents are down for breakfast, and after breakfast.

On days, mornings of, when I know my inner alarms will alert me up f rom sleep and I'll be up and about earlier, I'll implement a normal tradtional/and or dancier based workout styles, from dvds. In terms of chair fitness, I have a specially designed dvd segment, for chair workouts.


For today; I had a healthier cereal bar this morning, quite late on, I slept and up and about very late on into morning, and missed off breakfast.

Lunch; tuna sub.


Evening meal time, this shall be together with parents, mince meat - Lamb, with vegetables, I must try to get my request for no normal potato in, otherwise, I will happily have to have.


I will do another planning of diet and fitness up date review/plan earlier, and depending on how tired am or not if I had been to volunteer, or not.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,

I'm very well mental health though, I am noticing a very much of side effect u p, much more up, and that's the shakiness in my right hand. So I've lowered my dose down, which I had to slightly to 20ml. Well, I'll note how things will be, any such problems, heard voices, I'll h ave to reincrease, though I'm not looking for that route, yet a while.


I am now seemingly returning to old, self, not having anything too much not in between meals, so I know I haven't over eaten.

While out shopping locally, I put my plan into action, not getting packs of choclate pieces, although I have bought more of the light or diet based cereal bars, and also a nutty healthier bar packs.

From about r oughly 6.15pm, I might do my chair fitness workout stint. Or alternatively, I'll settle down to retire for the night earlier, about 10.30pm, or 10pm, and see what happens, and if I happen to be u p earlier, I'lll workout fr om about 5.5.30am.


For breakfast I had my light or diet based cereal bar,

For lunch I had a normal bread sandwich, I'm cutting back and down from sub style commercial bought sandwiches. Flavour of the sandwich? Sweetened, mashed up herring pate.

At dinner time, we will be having, and I need to explain something here, I and we at home, can only have kosher meat and or kosher or suitable fish, and vegetarian type meals; we will be having kosher mince meat of t urkey, and vegetables. May or not be with potatoes, I'll have to nearer to the meal time, double-check on that front.

Then, for ahead onto tomorrow, I haven't a clue. I don't plan meals, or lunchtime meals, anymore, because with my voluntary work routines happily in the way, I would have forgotten what I planned. I plan on each day, as I go along now.


I do intend, for lunchtimes based within home, to have more vegetarian within at home, meals, and not so to speak, buy in, from outside of home. Just might save me a few pounds, money wise as well.


In fact, I'm tired from being out twice today, so I'll leave my workout to plan, to do for the morning, earlier morning about 5.30am.from that time.


Have a good evening alll, I shall be popping onto MHF, every so often through the evening,

And knitting and listening to music whilst logged out, and along of also having the evening meal, together with parents.

Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,


I had meal together with parents, and my prayer jokingly had worked, mum decided, she didn't have the energy, much for dealing with potatoes, (it's due to her heart afib for short problems health wise, and meds that she's on, makes her tired very easily) so we just had protein, meat, and veg, and in parents case, extra veg, well, I don't have tomatoes, never have done.


I am hoping I'll workout, tomorrow, earlier morning.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Afternoon Folks,

Well, day 2, and I haven't even bought packs of chocolate pieces.

I had cereal for breakfast.

Lunch was a tuna, on baked potato, which I am limiting, not stopping completely on having. or buying.


Snacks; from a fruit pot of fruit jelly (not jelly as in jam) and later on also no added sugar peanut butter sandwich.

It will be for me, a vegetarian style of non meat meal, for tonight.

Somewhere this earlier evening, or during the evening, I'll get my chair fitness done.


I am having to help my immune, vitamin c and also zinc combined supplement, and b vitmains for energy to help fight against tiredness. Hadn't known, that b vitamins are good for stablising mood. What one learns, via everyday here at MHF, eh! Compliment, jokingly.


Best regards all,

Now, I slept a long time this morning, so I couldn't manage a morning workout, ouch, oh no.
So that's where the chair fitness comes in.

Hi, Morning Folks,

I have managed to allocate time, to do my morning workout. I just happened to up earlier for once at 6.15am.

I bascially just did a 12 minute mini workout, and this dvd with also a 17, and a challenging 30 minute workout is specially designed for those who haven't worked out ina while, or from injury, and I might just do this dvd for about a week.


I have bought a stock of a few tomato and herb small pots of pasta, so I'll have from a tub of that for lunch.


I'll do a further update later today.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,


I did have a pot of pasta for lunch.

This evening, I had a vegetable burger, in a burger bun.

And blackcurrant squash to drink, along side.

I am hoping that if I happen to be up earlier tomorrow, which I sense I probably will be, I shall workout, I have a fitness dvd idea in mind.


Also, I am banking on getting to zumba, on Wednesday 27th, it's a fast paced class, then, that I prefer rather than slow styles of zumba gold.


I have had to terminate for the time being, the Alpen light cereal bars, because I wasn't well and had a sinuses infection brewed up over this weekend, the core of the infection then cleared, happily suprised, and I am much much better.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I haven' t been well today, my sinuses were up, and possibly psorasis hurting as well, I will wash my hair, later on today. I took a dose of Sudafed, it was so painful, in the top part of head, and into face, and I used the hair dryer for a couple of times, for some heat, this was after having been out shopping by the way; and used my nasal spray a couple of times which is sea water based.


If I feel up to it, I might, just might do my chair fitness later on today.


To try to help with the problem of shakiness, which could be through my raynoulds' or anxiety levels, or a state of unsettled, a spell of unsettled this is, I am reducing my dose - point of note, to 20ml from 25ml, for a few days, and major major ailments, wise, symptons I mean, I'll keep my eye on, matters, and see how i am and I'll decide after a good few days or a week, what I will do dose wise then, hopefully not once more, as it is very strong waking hours, and also the shakiness.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Now that I am very much better, somewhere during the evening earlier during the evening, I might, just might get my chair workout done.

Hi Evening Folks,

I wasn't well this evening through sinuses, so I couldn't do my chair workout, I am hoping, and with my inner alarms to trigger me off, to be up earlier, I'll hopefully will do my workout, way before setting out to travel and volunteer in the morning.

Also, it's now gotten too late on for me to do my chair fitness.

Best regards all.

Hi Folks,

I'm alr ight, mental health wise, and on 25ml. dose.

However, I have in the meantime recovered, from a terrible big painful headache, which i needed a painkiller for. I am now much much better. I think it's down to the colder weather, sinsuses, and one or two small boils on head, and or also psorasis.


i have been listening to music, and trying to knit, though I knew wh at with the headache, impossible to knit, so I just res ted quietly. I am much much better now.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,

I've been very well this evening, no further sinuses, nor psorasis, and or a couple of small boils, headaches, making it very painful indeed. I had to take a painkiller to help knock off some of the pains.

I am intending on getting a early morning workout done, to my fitness dvds, any one of them, I haven't quite decided which, it will be though a current dvd.


Best regards all.

Hi Afternoon Folks,

I have had 2nd day of headaches, some of which are sinuses, and another psorasis.

I have put on my scalp application, for the psorasis, that has sorted out the root cause of that headache since, and I took a dose of my sinuses r emedy med which I am able to have a little of here and there from which I am relieved to be taking once more, Sudafed.

I have a GP appointment on Friday, in the afternoon, and I am going to confirm, that still how I haven't been on the sinuses fronts, and should I maybe perphaps, be referred on - to the ENT department. I'll play i t by ear and no te, what the different and another part timer GP might say.
Or do. I'll explain that for the sinuses, I do everything so to speak, under the sun, and yet, still and depending on t ype of weather come down, with the dehibiliating painful conditions.


I will ease hopefully for duration, of afternoon, listening to musicals, music and knitting.

And later on today, I just might do my chair fitness workout.


Best regards all,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I'm very well mental health and pyshcosis wise, I am at the moment unwell, with a very acute and very painful sinuses head. My brother had his room door open, or unless it sprung from the master main room, upstairs, and the amount of colder air, apart from the fact, there was a nip in the air today. I realised, I would have preferred to have my wintry coat on.


i have just used my nasal spray, and i have bought i was running low, a new 4 head rub on stick, I have just used that as well.depending how i am at 8pm, I may well have to have a painkiller.


I can't think - plan about workouts at the moment, not with this acute very painful head.which I am now feeling easier from.


Overall, my diet management has now returned to more normal statuses, not overeating too much during between mealtimes.


Best regards all, have a good evening all,


Natalie. I'll give an u pdate, about 10/10.30pm.

Hi Folks,


I haven't been very well this evening.

My psorasis has been complaining I had to have kept soothing that down, with the scalp application, it does need a wash my hair, I'll sort that tomorrow, or over the weekend;

my sinuses have been up, and problematic areas, which were once or s till are small boils, and I have psorasis lurking in those parts.

Overall, apart from them, the problems, I'm fine. I might have to use the scalp application again, or i might do something a bit different.

I hope everyone else is managing ok, just,


Best regards all.

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

My psorasis problems have now remarkably improved. I am feeling very much better.


I will still wash and restyle hair tomorrow, though at some point in the day.


Best regards all.
