Winning at life!

Thursday treat after aquafit! 
Proud that I come and do this on my own! 
Seems silly that I stopped coming because the Leisure Centre moved! I had convinced myself that, because I don’t know Hinckley, I wouldn’t be able to find its new location & I’d get lost! Even though it’s not far at all from its previous location! 
I had the offer to come with my ‘other mummy’ Crispie aka ChristineRobinson! 

Again though, I let my anxiety win! This time, because the Centre was new, I wouldn’t know where things were & would get more tired! 
These are the stories I would tell myself! That is of course, until I took control of my anxiety! 
Since then, I’ve done so many things by myself that I was just to anxious to do before.
They may not seen much to some, but some of the things include something like, just sitting in a cafe on your own! – Always to anxious! Now, for the third time, I think I’ve got the hang of it!
Another major hurdle was 2 weeks ago, when I accepted how much easier it would be to use the disabled, (some may prefer ‘less-abled’) changing room, after the aquafit class. 
Taking control of my anxiety,

Embracing the changes

And generally winning at life! 


New Monday, new week, new goals

​”I’m not one to set myself goals often as I don’t want to set myself up for failure!”
BUT… I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently. Maybe where I’m going wrong is the angle I’m looking at it from? 
If you look at the comment, I use a very powerful, negative word… ‘Failure’ 

Its as though I’m expecting to fail which is never a nice thing! 
Surely if I am more positive about it by adding positive words, thus making the comment positive at least I’ll have made a good start to succeeding! 

So, with that in mind… 
HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU ALL! Here’s to any goals that you have set yourself for the week! 
I’ve put my fitbit back on today &  I’m going to be starting with one of the most basic, fundamental things to achieve this week… Making sure I drink enough water!

Effects of detoxing on my MS

​First time I’ve ever detoxed & I didn’t expect to feel so shite! 

I know doing this is kinda against what @iammelwells stands for but I’m doing it as a kick start to get back to that healthy living we once had not to long ago! 
Yes, I’m going to blame Ollie’s πŸ• illness for our straying from good real green food! Now when I say straying, what i mean is, sometimes it really is far to easy to grab a takeaway. Ran out of time to cook, grab a McDonald’s, etc etc! 

What I’m trying to say is that crap food is too easy! And it gets you, you want more! 
So what myself, my girly & our good friend Adam are doing is having a complete change. We say we are detoxing, but what we’re really doing is cutting the sugar, processed, fatty food and a whole lot more! 
NO to milk 🍼 & any dairy 🍦, no eggs🐣, no meat πŸ–, no junk food πŸ—πŸ”πŸŸπŸ•πŸŒ­, no sugar πŸ©πŸŽ‚πŸ°πŸ«πŸ¬πŸ­ 
YES to vegetables πŸ†πŸŒ½πŸŒΆπŸ„πŸŒ°, fruit πŸ‡πŸˆπŸ‰πŸŠπŸŒπŸπŸŽπŸπŸπŸ’πŸ“, water, juice, good healthy unprocessed green food! 
The only thing I’m having trouble with is NO coffee! I used to be caffeine free for a long time but with the exercise I’ve been doing, I started sneaking the hard core caffeine in! Just the odd one here and there! So with not having coffee, I have noticed the difference! No sugar, no sweetener! 
I don’t feel like I’m depriving myself, quite the opposite, I feel empowered for doing a good thing for my body but I do feel rough, headache, sluggish, trouble concentrating! I know that describes me & one of my worst symptoms of my MS… FATIGUE but its worse! I’m sure it won’t last for too long and it will definitely be worth it! 
We got this guys! πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯

I’m cold, it hurts if I get too hot but can’t feel heat to touch!

Gotta love my Debbie for switching the electric blanket on last night for when I went to bed!

Gotta hate my MS for me not even realising it was on (I couldn’t feel the difference in temperature!)

I’d done myself a hot water bottle as well & took it to bed with me warming my back to ease the pain!

Oh my days! Can u imagine!
