    I'm looking for a healthy breakfast cereal similar to bran flakes but not All Bran (which just doesn't suit me) but something with that malty taste, any ideas?

    I'm a carer to my Dad & he has had 'bad days' since Saturday:( so, i have been running around after him everyday apart from Sunday..

    Doctors home visit will be arranged today, i think ..

    On the healthy eating front, all is well. I did hurt my knee (jumping jacks):mad:! However, that is now much better & i am hoping it is fully recovered by this Sunday as i am doing an 8 mile sponsored walk! Lots of pasta needed on Saturday for tea for an energy burst to keep me going:D Looking forward to it though!

    No, got up in the middle of the night & every step down the stairs hurt my knee so an 8 mile walk was not a good idea:mad:

    Resting it is the only answer ..

    Oh, well .. there is a 6 mile moonlight walk on July 15th which i will aim to be fit for.

    Struggling now, for the first time, i am having to stick to my calorie limit & not top it up with exercise back calories:cry: I'm finding i feel tired & hungry.

    After another horrendous week of my Dad not being well & having to help him everyday, I have called the doctor in (home visit today) to let him make any decisions or suggestions

    , i have done all i can to get him hydrated & bring back his appetite. He drank nearly a litre of water on Weds which was brilliant, but back to nearly nothing yesterday .. he seems to be giving up on life:cry: but, i won't let him!!

    My knee is now very much improved & therefore, i am starting my exercise again:D (Missed it)!

    sorry to hear your dad is feeling poorly. is he bed bound or are getting him up in the morning so he can potter about a bit? i feel for you. i cared for my dad for a couple of years through successive strokes and each time it got harder. i hope he's feeling more himself soon. hows your diet coming along?

    Hi, thanks for your reply:) He's 80 & suffers with bad arthritis in his feet & hands. He is just getting over a bout of Gout too, which has been very painful for him. Most of the time, he can get around his flat ok & on his good days, i can take him to the supermarkets & he loves that!

    I didn't go over to him the weekend before last & i don't know what happened but i think he just 'lost' the days, although i rang him & he sounded ok, i don't think he ate, drank or anything. On the Monday when i saw him, he looked awful & I realised he had missed two days of his tablets (& he takes around 15 a day)! So, that really upset his body balance & that's why he was so bad last week.

    However, i think he is almost back to normal now, thank goodness .. I persuaded him to let me cook for him at lunchtime yesterday & he ate well .. today, i am at home, catching up!

    It helps to write it down here .. then forget about it, if you see what i mean .. but it is hard, luckily he has a bright mind still, its just his body lets him down, but .. i try to keep him occupied & not let him dwell on things. He will have good & bad days ..

    My dieting is going well, thanks .. i was just looking at 'goals' for myself! Would be good to have something to aim for..
