Hello, and happy Friday! This post is comin’ attcha from the glamorous location of my sick bed (it’s very much like my regular bed only strewn with snotty tissues and other icky paraphernalia). I won’t go into details, you’ve heard it all before – it’s all very mucous-based and that’s never good. I will say this though – I am sick of being sick (this is literally the millionth time this year). It may be the Lemsip talking but I am determined to live a healthier lifestyle from here on in!
Cutting down on calories is one thing (and I’m pretty expert at that having been on a semi-permanent diet* since I was 12), eating healthy, wholesome and life-enhancing food though, that’s another thing altogether. And then there’s the exercise – a million nightmarish PE lessons flash before my eyes every time I hear that word.
I know it wont be easy – if I’m truthful I only gave up the cigs in the late 90s because smoking in the workplace became illegal and the thought of having to walk out to a smoking hut made me feel wheezy. The nearest I get to yoga (or any type of exercise) is when I have to wrestle myself into a pair of one-size tights. This should be ‘interesting’! Is it something you’re interested in hearing about or should I stick to the pretty pictures? A separate blog, maybe?
Any hoo, yes, here’s what’s been inspiring me on flickr – just looking at these is making me feel a bit better!
*for semi-permanent dieter you might also read part-time ‘all you can eat’ competitive eater – a British Adam Richman, if you will.
