Went swimming today did 50 lengths. Had a good day. 2 shakes, banana, apple and milk for tea and coffee.
Decided to have a takeaway tonight, I had vegetable curry and chicken fried rice, I only managed to eat just under half of it and am stuffed, I can't eat the volume I used to... Which is a good thing lol before I could of eaten it all with a nan bread and popodoms.
Going to get up in mornin and do a Pilates class never done one before so will be interesting x
Ooh Let me know how pilates goes. I'm slightly curious about it lol
Michellebelle, it was very interesting nothing quite like I have done before.
The best I can describe it is, loosening the joints, looking at your bodies posture, relaxing breathing, and gentle exercise to strengthen your core muscles.
It's definitely not something to do for fittness as such.
I'm definitely going to go regularly on a Sunday morning, after a week at work, it's just what is needed x
Thanks, Sounds quite interesting. I might have a look see if their is a class in my area.
Well Sunday is our day at mother inlaws, another fantastic Sunday dinner, vegi quern fillets, mash, carrot ans sweed mash, broccoli , peas and gravy yum yum!!!
She also made a cherry bake well tart, so I treated myself to a small piece. I've kept within my calorie allowance so I don't think I've done too bad x
I'm working today, so will have shake before I go, a banana mid morning and a shake when I get back, don't know what's for tea, so skint it's unbelievable, think I might do vegi bolognaise should have all ingredients in freezer and cupboard.
I know what you mean, I hate this time of month 4 days till pay day! lol
It's a pain, hubbie was made redundant a couple of months ago, he's working now but we had a couple of weeks without him working and now he gets paid weekly, instead of monthly and we seem to be playing catchup all the time with added charges for late payment grrrr x

That sounds so familiar... I'm still playing catchup after my hubby was made redundant 4 years ago. Although he's now been working regularly for the last 2 years it's taking time.
Went to tesco today, it's quite surprising what you can buy for £20 when you don't buy crap.
Had spag bog for tea, I think it will be sausage, mash, peas and onion gravy tomorrow and fresh air on thurs, lol
Think it's that time of the month for me, feel exhausted, nauseous, and heavy
Must stay focused as all I want to do is slob out and eat crap, doubt I will be getting my 2 lb this week I've still been 100% though so hopefully I will see the results next week x
Just read through your entire diary and must say you are doing great!
I have been diagnosed with hypermobility along with other things and told that pilates may strengthen my core muscles. I was diagnosed after breaking my tib and fib 2 years ago now after I kept passing out. I went to the GP twice previously who just told me to eat more salt? despite not even doing so much as a blood test! Later that week I fainted again and snapped both bones in my leg resulting in major surgery and a long hospital stay. I now have plates and a rod in my leg and still have a lot of pain and swelling so can't do much despite having to try and improve my core stability due to having hypermobility. I also have epilepsy...the list goes on. How did you find pilates? I am a bit scared to even try it at the moment.
I'm so sorry to hear about your health problems Hun it must be very hard for you.
Have you explored all treatments available to you through the NHS ? With a good doctor? I don't really know what's available or what would suit hour needs but some sort of physio in water may be ? might be worth persuing?
Pilate I think is suitable for most people, if you find a class and you spoke to the instructor it would be adapted for your needs and what you are able to do, in the class I went to there were people of all ages with different ailments and the exercises were adapted for each of them x.
When in pain you must feel very cautious about what you want to try, but also if it could give you some relief it must be worth inquiring about x
I was going to physio for my leg, then saw a physio for hypermobility but that has now stopped. She did say that pilates could help but that didn't take the separate leg break into account. I also have a huge fear of falling now with the epilepsy and am so worried incase I break my leg again as it doesn't feel strong and my knees dislocate easily (hypermobility). I wasn't that confident before with just the epilepsy but sadly I never leave the house alone now which is pretty sad of me to admit. If it's not feeling drowsy on anti-convulsants, it's fear of having a seizure. I was doing quite well until the tib/fib break but I can't risk that happening again. Because of scar tissue on my knee after surgery I can't even kneel anymore as it hurts so much but I am hoping that feeling will eventually go. As I am not able to exercise much I just think the only other thing that may help is shifting the weight as it must cause stress on the joints so if I lose weight then that has got to help somehow plus I will feel better about myself too. I am not a very confident person if I'm honest.
Of course being in the best condition you can be has to have a positive effect on your body, one of the reasons I like slim fast is the nutrients and vitamins it provides especially combined with healthy snax and meals.
Carrying extra pounds has got to put a strain on any part of the body!!
I must say I admire your strength to improve your life by taking control of your weight, my hubbie suffers greatly with his back that leads to severe headaches, and mobility on occasion and it's very easy to sink into depression when dealing with I'll health on a daily basis.
If you found a Pilates group do you know any one who may go with you? It's mainly floor work on a mat on yr back side or front.
If your physio was before your break I wud seriously consider finding a good doctor who is sympathetic to your needs, and push for what treatments are available to you.
In our area there are volunteers who take people to appointments who would struggle to get there otherwise.
You never know they may provide such a service in your area x
