Kelda, I'm sorry to hear you're suffering, glad you got a diagnosis that is working for you.  Curves is in Scotland?  There's one just a few blocks from my house.  I used to go, but didn't stick with it.

Yup Curves in Scotland - I joined the one near my work on my first day back on Monday - went 5 timers this week - Monday, Tue, Wed, Thu & Friday - go me!

I quite like it - as I've said before I have not a great attention span - so I like the 30 seconds thing - the kind of group thing - I much prefer team games - and the finite time thing - you know its 30 mins and you can say - well I only have half a circuit left to go or whatever.

well, I found a gym to join.  I will be going in on Friday after work, and getting a membership, and appointment with a personal trainer.

I had a foolproof plan to lose the extra 5 lbs that were making my jeans too tight. I was just going to climb up a mountain...Mount Washington to be exact! But it backfired because I spent so much time in a car or a plane getting to and from Mt. Washington! So, as the new year begins, I'm back on my training regimen.

I hope to be ready to run a 5K in March or April, and here's what I have on my schedule in September...a half-marathon in Wyoming!! I was planning to run it last year but had to skip it at the last minute due to my husband going on a business trip. This year, I'm putting my registration money down early!! Jeans, here I come!!

May 2019 be better for us all.

Well I have been diagnosed with IBS.. I had had an inkling for a 3hile (as my sister has it and my cousin) but hadn't done anything about it as it wasn't too bad - but I had realy bad cramping and aches over the holidays - now I ahve pills.

The doctor suggested I keep a food diary - this is likely to have a good effect on my veating habits I'm sure!!  :-* Also planning to joing curves but I'll tell you more about that when I'm back online properly.

Oh Kelda I'm so sorry to hear about your diagnosis and that you had not been feeling well. I hope the food diary will help you find the foods you need to avoid and that you do not suffer and bad bouts.

Thanks T!

I have to admit to being a bit lax with the diary - but (TMI alert - sorry!) had a lot of wind tonight  - I had a cheese topped quorn fillet, roated aubergines & salad.

Me thinks it could have been the amount of cheese. PLus I had a chunk of cheese wehn I came in as I was starving and also mayo with the salad...

hmmm ... dairy..... but I sooo can't not live without dairy, so I'll just have to keep a check on things...

On a plus side - I have been to curves 14 times in 3 weeks - go me! And I was also at yoga and callanetics this week

Well, on Jan 21st, I joined a gym (NYSC) and I've been going every day since then.

In the three weeks I've been there, I've lost three pounds.  ;D
