Weight month 7

Health and fitness post #7 01/01/2017

Happy New Year everyone! This month hasn't been great so let's just get on with the fail shall we? Here's to hoping 2017 goes better if I follow my resolution. Weight loss goals Not as bad as I thought really. Ok the actual weight gain is pretty terrible but a slight loss in fat percentage … Continue reading Health and fitness post #7 01/01/2017

DVT update

It's coming up to 3 months on 15th December since I was diagnosed with a DVT and it's still very much a learning and long recovery process. I haven't posted an update about it for a while, partly because I don't want it to be something that defines me and partly because there just hasn't … Continue reading DVT update

Weight month 6

Health and fitness post #6 01/12/2016

I can't believe it's that time again, where has the year gone?! I particularly can't believe I've been doing these posts for 6 months (well 5 really I suppose). I'm sorting out the degu cage to be Christmassy later so let's get on with this so I can make with festivities. Weight loss goals Talk … Continue reading Health and fitness post #6 01/12/2016

Just in case

I've had this blog planned for a couple of weeks now and it has just become even more relevant this week thanks to a slight set back with my deep vein thrombosis. It feels like my life since diagnosis has been ruled by a "Just in case" mindset. One of the really lovely things with … Continue reading Just in case

Weight month 5

Health and fitness post #5 01/11/2016

I'm on time this month! Unfortunately it's not good reading so please go tell me off in the comments and make me behave more for November. Weight loss goals Not good reading at all although it started out ok and then suddenly as I started being able to move around more I put weight back … Continue reading Health and fitness post #5 01/11/2016

World Thrombosis Day

The mental side of a DVT

It's quite a different side to a blood clot once you get past that initial shock of it. Being told by the doctor that if you feel shortness of breath or chest pain you need to call 999 immediately because it could be fatal tends to make you concentrate very much on the immediate, physical … Continue reading The mental side of a DVT

Weight month 4

Health and fitness post #4 01/10/2016

A little late on this one as I completely forgot the date due to messing around with all this DVT stuff. I might as well keep the posts up even though the DVT will affect it but it will be interesting to see what I can do. Weight loss goals Oddly this month has actually … Continue reading Health and fitness post #4 01/10/2016

First week with a DVT

So it's been just over a week since my DVT was diagnosed and what a week it has been. It really knocks your confidence and is quite a shocking thing to be told you have. Quite a lot and yet not a lot has happened since my last post. I don't think there will be … Continue reading First week with a DVT

A block in the road

So there is quite literally a block in the road for my health and fitness posts. Well not in the road as such but in my veins; just this past Friday I was diagnosed with a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). I wouldn't usually bother posting all my health issues on here or every little problem … Continue reading A block in the road

August's weight

Health and fitness post #3 01/09/2016

Another month, another not so successful one! I knew this wouldn't be great though as I had the Discworld Convention last weekend which is never conduicive to eating well. I'll be posting a blog about that (and hopefully about past ones too) at some point. This month should be better; I have no events planned … Continue reading Health and fitness post #3 01/09/2016
