Still eating the same old way. Eating rubbish a lot of the time. Still feeling v FAT. Not happy.
I am supposed to be counting portions. E.g. I am allowed
50 calorie treat
Can’t say I am being entirely successful. Tempted still to do Slim Fast, since have about 4 tins various flavours.
Ohhhh got a new pair of shoes from EBay. Must practise walking in them!
Some more recent photos
Hmmmm…..today, well, I worked half day, went to a meeting in the afternoon and cleaned, made tea.
Also did 15 mins on treadmill, whoo hoodoo.
Never, never try to make a pancake mix out of milk, chocolate slim fast, egg and flour. Ok, it made a good batter but hmmmm…….. not the nicest of pancakes. I might have eaten a few, try to try them.
Treated myself to a sherbet fountain in the evening and ended up convered in the stuff.
Drinking lots of tea and decaffeinated coffee in the evening to stop me eating. Sometimes it works, not always.
Am bored with my hair colour (above) and want it blonder but am reluctant to do it myself for fear it will knacker it, frizz it.
Got a phone call from my GP surgery to make an appointment following up my shoulder xray, to discuss result with doctor. I reckon he’ll just say that yes I can have the steroid/cortisone injections into it.we shall see, my app isn’t till 24th ish.
My shoulder has been utterly painful, making me cry almost, it is so so painful at night and morning and hurts through the day too. My rheumatoid arthritis is kicking off a bit at the moment but luckily not too bad thanks to the methotrexate. My hands hurt a lot though, perhaps I need to get my splints out and wear them sometimes.? My knees and hips hurt sometimes but again the pain is manageable with strong painkillers when I need them. Bag of aches eh!!!!!!
Still managing to avoid chocolate!!
I have low ferritin, it’s 9 and my iron is 11.2.
Feel absolutely ghastly this morning, breathless, tired, yucky, brain not working ( what’s new), seriously felt terrible. Got permission to leave work, go home. Went to Dr’ s. She said my blood levels were why I felt so bad (I guessed that) and I’d feel so much better in 1 to 2 weeks.
Also maybe I should avoid the slim fast for time being. Ok.
Slept all afternoon for 7 hours. In bed now at 11pm feeling exhausted. At least it’s Friday tomorrow.
I do think my current poor diet is not helping. Need to get a grip on my eating. I need to start looking after me.
Feeling pasty washed out and rubbish
Had slim fast for breakfast, was so cold and hungry on way home from work that I had a bacon bap.
Went to dentist, went ok. Had some yoghurt at home and ok some mint chocolate matchmakers!
Feeling v tired.
Been watching Celebrity Super Spa, it’s so funny. I still have my voucher for a studio photo with hair trim and make-up, given to me for my 50th by Kate. Also I got a beauty salon voucher from work worth £65 that I have yet to use.
Just relaxing now, watching scrappy tv. Too tired to go for walk tonight. Will aim to do slim fast tomorrow. Is easier to do when I’m in work.
DID Slim Fast today. Had a shake for breakfast and one for lunch. Wasn’t so good for evening meal though. Had 2 crusty bread rolls, packet crisps, ham, mayo type dip.
DID go for a walk round the marine lake in the evening with Colette.
Checked my blood results at the Drs. My Hba1c is down to 79 from 92. Cholesterol 4.1
I seem to have a problem with my ferritin level again or my iron? Dr is ringing me on Monday afternoon.
Perhaps this is why I’ve been feeling a bit puffed out when walking? Also my palpitations are back. ?????
Had summer strawberry shake fir breakfast. Didn’t feel hungry this morning at breakfast.
Must remember to drink water. Not sure what I’m having for tea/evening meal?
Also hoping to go for ealk around the marine lake tonight
I have eatrn so much crap I’m going to explode.
There’s nothing for it
I’ve got to stop eating
Next brst thing –
So, it’s ordered online cos it works out cheaper. I’ve got to do it as a kick start.
Got 4 tins so give or take, am going to do a month on Slim Fast. I have done it in the past and it actually helped my blood sugars. Could’t do it for more than 4 weeks though.
Just waiting for the divery now.
