A look through a dyslexics eyes

This is so fascinating!

I am not dyslexic but DebbieRahRah is. I clicked on the link to have a read, I always like to try and understand what it’s like to be in her world!

I wasn’t prepared for what I saw! Like I said, I’m not dyslexic but, what I saw is exactly what I see every time I read/write for the past 5 years!

This makes me then question, is this a part of my cognitive problems from my MS & Fibromyalgia!?

I am interested in knowing if anyone else has experienced this due to their MS, Fibro or any other?

A blog a day! Goal set 7lb in 31 days! #weightloss #blog #goal #ms #multiplesclerosis

I had to stop going to Slimming World due to unforeseen expenses consisting of the love for our dog, her arthritis, her pain levels and medication for it.
Therefore I need a new way to stay focused on my weight loss journey.
That’s where you come in!

I need to keep in check with my journey, no cheats! That’s going to be so hard but I have to keep telling myself if I want this bad enough then I’ll be good!

Does anyone have any tips for me to resist the sugar temptation?

I had an appointment with my Neuro Physiotherapist today! 1 thing they are good for is telling you when they think you have lost weight!
Feeling good about that!

I will nail this journey! I will prove to my MS that I CAN, I WILL and I DO succeed!


Practicing Pilates at home can have its downsides #pilates #pilates4ms #pilateslovers #ms #spms #multiplesclerosis #thisgirlcan #ishapeme

Today I did my best ever Pilates ‘100’ (top pic) every time I seem to be getting better especially when I do it ‘Hannah style’ (one of my Pilates instructors)
Beating away trying my best to keep count on my last set & our dog decided she wanted a drink, anyone that knows Ollie will also know that she has got to be the messiest dog when it comes to drinking!
I knew it was going to happen, I don’t know why I didn’t move sooner! There I am lying on the kitchen floor, Ollie has a drink of water, walks over to me a drips it all on my face! 😨

Next was ‘The Plank’ (bottom picture) nothing quite as disgusting as above but really annoying for me!
My most impressive FULL Plank ever, yes… FULL PLANK and neither Deb nor me counted how long I held it for!
I’m not talking a record time or anything like that but surely something in the region of a minute which let me tell u,  seriously impressive for me!

Rock, roll & wide awake!

Well, my wifey fell asleep on the sofa at 8:15pm! I had to sort the kids (🐕🐕) believe me, that’s a mission!  Make sure said wife took her meds after I found her catching flies slumped on one of the tub chairs in the kithen! Help her out of her onesie, never an easy mission!
Go round the bungalow making sure it’s all locked up, go around once more… u never know!
Sort myself out, meds, pjs etc. Check the doors where locked, I’d forgotten I’d already done it twice!
In bed before 9pm… BOOM! Rock, roll & wide awake!

Now who’s the one with MS! 😜

When the right pain comes I smile #MS #multiplesclerosis #nervepain #nervedamage #painforgain #strongerthanMS #thismegaspecialrocks #thisgirlcan #ishapeme #MegaSpecial

I’m sure this is referring to pain for gain because the pain I feel right now is not making me smile!

Check list…

•Heavy lifeless legs ✔
•Extreme relentless pain for no good reason ✔
•deep burning like my thighs are in a furness ✔

Yep, must be MS! 😩
Bring on tomorrow’s Pilates! Pain for a reason! 👌👍👏
