Hi R_Sxo,

I am sorry that I wasn't clearer. I had been counting the nightime sleeping habits, because yet again, over the past week, I would be waking up earlier than normal. So i was therefore counting the number of nights, i had broken or disruptive sleep on, that's all i meant.

The thouight did cross my mind, in terms of not being able to bend low, to pick up an item right down at supermarket floor level literally, that stretches did come to mind, you'll enoucourage me to do that, now. Not literally, now. in due course.

When the better weat her comes, Yoga might be something i'll wish to try, thoiugh, mind you, if there won't be difficult moves, that I shan't be able to cope with. I'll have to enquire at my centre, in North West London, whether if they still do Yoga Classes.

I shall see if i can watch a Yoga Class first, before trying.

My sleeping overall has improved, so I'm not too worried about my paranoia, levels, mind you, easier said then done, i basically just listen to music, all day, and all evening when based in at home, and also when I can, chair fitness, or do a normal workout in the day time, to help me sleep better at night. Sometimes, paranoia around 4a m, will just suddenly "bang" there it goes, to shock start in my system to wake me up at that juncture.

That's all for now,

Natalie.
Hiya Natalie!x

Ah okay, thank you for explaining that! For the yoga, there are plenty of types - some are very easy on certain muscles, some are very intense, some are for physiotherapy etc, so I'm sure there'll be one that works for you! It doesn't even have to be a whole routine - you could just pick the ones that target your back.

Awh, that's a shame - hopefully that doesn't carry on too long, but have you had it checked to see if something like music would prevent paranoia from interrupting your sleep?x

Hope you feel better soon!x

Much love <3

Hi R_Sxo,


Now I do listen to music virtually all day long, and during the evening until late evening.

However for this week, I am sleeping much much better, which should have been the case back Late January early February.


I am at for 1 overnight, in airport vicinity hotel location, before flying to our holiday destination tomorrow.


I am now feeling much much better following from a spell of infections on my back.


Best Regards,


Natalie.

Hi R_Sxo,


I am presently away with parents in our other country on holiday.


One factor I am via self finding, it is the case, parents and I are having far too many meals! well with a lunch meal out, and also, a meal out in the evening. Far too much. I always prefer to have a light lunch, and a big main meal in the evening.


I tried to use my fitness dvd in the hotels, unfortunately a british dvd, does not work, in the US.


I am away for another 7 o r 8 nights to go now.


I'll be very relieved to get back to my usual old self, via light lunches, and a big meal in the evenings, and also working out, as and when.


Best Regards,


Natalie.

Hi R_Sxo,

I returned back from holiday on Wednesday 21st, March.


Mother's come down with a bad cold at the moment, and what with jet lag hasn't at all helped her. Therefore, I don't plan to workout earlier mornings, presently.


I am going to weigh on Saturday so I'll know my weight level then. Judging by my trousers - jeans I have been wearing, I might have lost a bit more weight actually, i'll know when I'll check.

We have a religious festiival coming up, and that, will be a fattening, meaning putting on calories time. The festival shall take about 8 or 9 nights to sift through, this is the worst nightmare festivial of all.


I might resume my fitness interests in at home, round about the rreligious time.


I plan to go to classes, thereafter, once the festival has terminated, I'll explain to the tutor, that it has been too cold, for me, for even to set out for a 9.30 claass. And or 9.45 class even during the week.


Best Regards,


Natalie.

Hi Naominash,

You might have done the correct thing, there. On that note, sugar is one of the biggest weight gaining addictions , and I always limit my sugary food and drink intake. I look for non sugary fruit drinks, without added sugar, and cut back down on biscuits, with too much sugar in, (I have a physical health condition as well apart from mental health) and also cakes, and sweets, sweets normally which are bad for teeth, anyhow.

In the normal way of things, I just have one pack of choclate pieces a day, now, planning wise this is, and cocentrate for boosting energy, will be by having energy supplemeents, with a hint of a small amount of caffeien in, and just recently I have bought a supplement, in place of this supplement, with 7 b vitamins, and electrolytes, in per sachet, and vitamin c as well.


Also, I am sure you are aware, for you, I personally workout to my fitness dvds, and I am planning to get to classes of dance zumba.

I have seen my weight drop from my waist area, I am still having problems with slight weight gain, in other areas about me. Oh yes, cutting back and down, on baked potatoes, will be the other idea, I have.


I hope you are well,


Natalie.

Hi R_Sxo,


I have since with parents returned back from holiday.


One of the factors, I was noticing, and that I might have lost waist weight, my trousers - jeans, kept very much slipping down, and I always had to struggle in public, to readjust them! I still do have weight problems with other areas about me, regarding what I had pm'd you once.

i am going through sessions of jet lag at the moment, once they are out of the way, and I figured that what with the extra light mornings, you would think, I'd be up and about, nope, I have been very much asleep until 10am.


So once, the jet lag has cleared and levelled off, I shall be planning to workout every so often - mornings wise, in the living room downstairs.Basically to my fitness dvds.


We have are expecting bad weather to happen, so all being well thereafter, I'll go to zumba g old, on a Saturday morning, not too many classes mind, I need to pay a certain amount a time. I might just go every couple of weeks. And workout to my fitness dvds, in the meantime.


My levels of szchiophrenia problems have greatly improved, since having been back home, with parents.


Best Regards.


Natalie.

Awh that's a shame to hear - hopefully you were able to find another way to keep your fitness levels up! Once you got back, I'm sure you'd get back into routine!

Hi R_Sxo,

Glad you've enjoyed the holiday! Sorry to hear about your mother - hope she recovers swiftly. The jet lag won't be helpful, but once that wears off, I'm sure she'll feel a little better.

I'm currently having my second round of the flu, so not much fun over here either. On the plus side, I believe it's a different strand of the flu, so atleast I'm getting some variety haha! :clap: ;)

That's amazing news - congratulations! The waist/stomach area is the hardest place to lose fat mass, so you've done really well to drop some inches from that area! Once the jet lag wears off, you can keep powering through those workouts! :)

Glad to hear that your schizophrenia symptoms have settled as well!

Much love <3

Hi R-Sxo,

Thanks, regarding my weight loss.


Thanks also regarding my szchophrenia problems have since levelled off.


I happened to have weighed myself this morning, and bearing in mind for my petite build and height, I am surprsingly weighing a little under away from 10st. So if I can get eventually back to 9 and a half, then, I'm happy.


Regards,


Natalie.

Hi R_Sxo,


I am finding, that I am sleeping very well overnighters, apart from up for a short while only the once, in the nights, that for earlier in the mornings, I just haven't been able to find time early mornings for my workouts.

So what I am thinking of doing instead, and for later on during the day, in the mid afternoon, or early evenings, I'll get my chair fitness sessions going done.

Well, I had half hoped, that with the extra daylight now, for the earlier mornings, that would encourage me to be awake, about 4.30am, how wrong I was. That just hasn't happened.

Once hopefully and after Passover, my volunteering ad hoc duties should then pick up, my inner within me alarms will be triggered jokingly, and on a serious note, these inner alarms within me, as they have done so previously, will then trigger me to be awake much earlier on mornings.

I am hoping as well, to get to zumba gold, on the 14th of April, I think it will be, otherwise, and what with religiosu circumstances, will the week after.


Apart from what with passover, my diet has been slightly erractic, I hope to resume to more normal patterns after passover, passover is and can be a bit of extra calories time.


Best Regards,


Natalie.

Hi R_Sxo,

There will be a class of zumba gold, on the morning of Saturday 14th April, so I am going to try, to get in, for that.


It is now our Passover festival, and that can and does often through this time, meaning putting on the extra pounds. I'll hope to lose the extra pounds, shortly thereafter, Passover. Apart fr om the solemn time to use a word, for Passover, it is also celebratory as well, and, this is where and can, cakey items can come into effect, I'll try not to have too much, through this time. Lasting for 8/9 nights and days.



Best Regards,


Natalie.
