Morning everybody and welcome once again to my blog of stuff and nonsense.
As you guys know, I write everyday. Sometimes long tomes and sometime short and sweet updates but whatever I do on any given day, it is me that does it and shares it with the world and it is 99% straight from the heart.
When I first started the blog I don’t suppose that I considered just how much of myself I would put out there on a daily basis and how easily I would hold myself up for criticism but that is what we do and we either worry about it and what people will think or we bear our souls for both acclaim and hatred alike.
If I am honest I haven’t been the target of much dislike here in cyberspace. Maybe it is because the people who follow me are more interested or at least are not going to assassinate my character just because of a few words of would be entertainment.
In the real world however, this is not the case. Fat people are vilified all to regularly and I myself have found this out much to my sadness. It is amazing that in this day and age there is so much bigotry aimed at skin colour, body size and sexuality. I personally wonder how crap and empty someones life must be to make them think it is okay to post or say stuff about another human being. Fair enough in the heat of an argument, these things can happen (although still inexcusable) but to simply be looked out and hated for minding your own business or sharing your point of view with other like minded souls? Well that is bigotry at its most base rate. I personally could simply not be bothered to take any time let alone waste my own time with hating someone for being themselves, yet there are many in the world who are like it.
To them I would say “Don’t worry, be happy” and to the ones being abused I would say the same because the minute we start to carry hate around with us, it starts to do it’s job and undermine our own individual existences. I used to think it impossible to turn the other cheek but today? I am so much happier than I have ever been with my mind and body wellness I simply try harder and refuse to let anyone take that away from me.
Yes I still get down but then who doesn’t? It is all part of life’s rich tapestry. Without the bad bits we would never see when a good bit was about to strike and hit us square between the eyes, whether it be monetary, health or my own personal weakness, love. If I spent all my days moping about I wouldn’t be attractive to the opposite sex (not that I am saying I actually am 😉 ) but what you do actually garners what you get. If you want love you must feel loved and secure and this will rub off onto other people and indeed it will come back to you in spades. For health? Well we all know a hypochondriac is always convinced of an ailment so will never feel well. If we can get that wellness doubt out of our mindset, we will become more active and by simply being more active we will feel better. I am not saying this applies to all illness but there are a goodly few that can be overcome, after all I am living proof of this. As for money, well if we are positive about money we will always find a way of making a shilling appear in our pocket. If we are proactive there is always something to be done about our bank balance. They say good things come to those who wait but I don’t believe this applies to money because if you sit around and do nothing you will always have the same.
Well that is todays thought taken care of. Maybe now you have read this you might look up and consider the sunny side of the day and if possible count your blessings for what you have whether it be health, wealth or the best of all love.
FOOD DIARY:Monday 17th August 2015
|Qty||Measure||Food||Calories (gr)||Protein (gr)||Carbs (gr)||Fat (gr)|
|Breakfast||2||42gms||Seeded Rye Bread Toast||160||5.8||29.9||2|
|Dinner||1||50gms||Spicy Bulgar Wheat||75||2.4||13||2|
|1||150gms||Chicken, Creme Fraiche and Broad Beans||363||24.6||12.3||23.1|
So the food was what could be expected after a day out at the shops but I was quite surprised by the fat and calorie content of the Chicken, Broad Bean and Creme Fraiche. However, in the grand scheme of things the day’s totals (apart from carbs due to two lots of bread) still remained fairly low so no drama.
Yesterday’s exercise wasn’t restricted to the usual Tuesday stroll but a good stomp which Map My Walk picked up as this:
So I was very pleased with the above 2.8miles, which translated into a good 345 calories on the Polar H7 after a little running was added into the mix.
And as we know all the steps add up giving me a final reading on my new Jawbone Up2 of well over 12,000 so happy days there as well!
So thats me for today, hope you enjoyed it all and you know where to come for more of the same….
Stay out of the fridge.
