Is loving and giving.
Now although this may sound like me, I wasn’t one of these.
I was born on a Sunday and as the rhyme says “But the child who is born on the Sabbath day, is lucky and happy and good and gay”
However, I was always of the opinion if it wasn’t for bad luck I would have no luck at all. Yes I am a reasonably happy person, I know I am a good person and the least said about today’s interpretation of the word Gay, the better.
Recently however, I have started to feel happy nearly all of the time, not like a clueless happy wandering around with a smile on my face scaring people, but an inner peace that can only come from happiness. I have started to think I actually am lucky because I have been given this amazing chance of improving my life; and as for being good, well that is just the way I have always rolled 😉
I don’t do any of this for the sake of other people, I am exactly what I am because I choose to be that person. I am someone that can be relied upon, someone that will always help if I have the power to do so and someone who tries to see the upside when listening to another’s woes or worries.
This has mostly come from making the massive changes to my life including my decision to treat myself with more respect and look after myself in a much more sensible manner, make better food choices and take regular exercise. I have come to understand that eating well and living healthy make life so much easier when it comes to dealing with issues of the mind, having a much sunnier disposition and generally feeling well mentally. No two days are ever the same for me since I took the huge step of having Bariatric Surgery because my life now is completely amazing in comparison to how it was and how I lived it.
It just goes to show that losing weight isn’t just about looking better, it’s a whole other way of life and so far I am finding that this new life is the best I have ever lived.

Yes, I know! I went to the pub and I had a couple of pints….! I think I am fighting a losing battle here…! I am just going to have to settle for the fact that in the summertime I like to take a trip over to my local pub, see my friends and relax with a couple of drinks. I don’t over do it, I don’t get “smashed” and I am always mindful of what the following day requires of me. To that end, I relax, chat and go home at a sensible time. Anyway, that is where we are vis-a-vis the Magners Cider 🙂 Food wise I have to say that given it was actually a gym day, I ate very healthily and was happy with all the food choices I made for the day even if it was a little high on the calories and carbs.
Yesterday was a rest day so I spent it catching up on various little chores and pieces of work I wanted to get done. There was no dog walking for me as Archie the dog went for a visit with a friend who likes to walk him far and wide around the county, take him for a trip on the bus and show him the sites along the riverbank. This means you are not subjected to ANY screenshots in todays post because there was no gym to report on, no walk to show you and because of that, I didn’t bother with the Jawbone Up24 choosing to give myself a break from wearing it 24/7.
Today is a gym and a dog walking day, plus I shall hopefully be collecting some new furniture at some point so it plans to be a very active day unlike yesterday where I mostly sat and wrote! I would therefore recommend coming back in 24hrs to see how I got on and if I managed to fit it all in…
Stay out of the fridge.
