Mixed weekend. A day out in Liverpool on Saturday with a visit to the Bluecoat for a history tour, coffee and I nipped to the book fair there and picked up some books for Neil. It was a beautiful day out, sunny relaxing. Went with good friend Andrea and met some others whom I’d met before (through Andrea). Thoroughly enjoyed the day, went to a vegetarian cafe called Egg, no e company and a good laugh, what I needed to switch off from stresses.
Had our usual Sunday breakfast out this morning with Jonathans, Lattitude in West Kirby where we go every Sunday morning just me and J to chill, Neil stays at home with R.
Other than that have been v lazy today. Tomorrow am off to the 1st session of the Livewell Programme with Jonathan, am going along to support him and hopefully lose weight too, plus Slimming World tomorrow night (me), can I face the scales twice in one day?
Had a few bites to eat out, not always easy to eat super healthy in cafes. R got brilliant grades in her Maths and English GCSE’ s. Very proud of her. J, R and I went out to tea to R’ s fave place The OK Diner. I had a breakfast which was nice.
Today Neil and I had lunch out, a coronation chicken sandwich with salad and a few crisps. Tried to eat healthier at home for tea. Had a syn free chilli, no rice. And some yogurt. Did nibble on a small bag of cashew nuts.
Need to do some walking tomorrow, or house cleaning! Or both!!!
Got a new swimming costume today, wonder if J will go swimming tomorrow or Monday?
Lost 1 1/2 lbs last week in Slimming World, making 9 1/2 lbs altogether. Feel I haven’t been as good as I could’ve been this week, unfortunately. I need to get totally on track. It’s been several weeks since I really tried.
Oh yes, I went for my hearing test at the hospital on Friday. I have moderate to severe loss in my left ear and was given a digital hearing aid, programmed specifically for me. It’s great but takes some getting used to hearing so many sounds. When I’m not wearing it, every sound is so dull.
Blood sugars have been marginally better. I got sent a new insulin pen (Novopen Echo) by a lovely new friend online on the Diabetic Den, thank you Avril. I am so chuffed with it and it does half units. Stupid really that my diabetic clinic have only ever provided me with 1 pen and I’ve never ever thought to ask my GP for any. Seeing my GP on Wed afternoon to ask about getting my diabetes care transferred to Liverpool, they have s much better diabetes unit, plus they do the pump.
I’m no good with these blog pages, can’t get the proper hang of it. Keep losing my password, changing it, losing it. Driving me nuts. I was great with my old no longer web site using Dreamweaver but gave that one up some time ago.
Well, woke up this morning totally confused thinking it was Sunday, took me all morning and into the afternoon to get that it’s Saturday!
Had v healthy breakfast of fresh fruit and 0% plain greek yogurt, felt very good.
J and I went to Heswall for some art pens for R. We called in Thorntons Cafe, ok I did have a cuppa tea oh and a non fatty bacon with cranberry with salad sandwich with a few crisps.
Need to eat ‘free food’ for rest of the day.
My hair is like a total frizz and I am really tempted to cut it v short. Would I regret it?
Short hair many years ago about 2004.
Current frizzy hair
I have not truly been sticking to the Slimming World plan, just been on and off it. I am really trying though because I don’t want to lose control of my eating and undo all the lovely weight loss I have had so far – whoo hooo 12 and a half pounds. I know I can eat healthily.
I was (last night), considering not going to get weighed Monday night, but I decided I am going to get to my ideal weight, a healthy weight and I’m going to feel better and only with support and motivation can I do this.
J and I went for a walk last night, we ‘ll go again tonight. Neil can’t at the moment, walking causes him too much pain.
R has been doing lots of art which is lovely.
Mad pic of J and me!
Me wearing J’ s uni hoody.
My fave pic of us all taken about 7 years ago.
