Ki Hara – helping my recovery – the sequel

In November 2020 I decided to try and aid my muscle and fitness recovery following Cushing's by doing Ki Hara; a type of yoga that I used to practise. With my instructor, Ellie, I have now completed 5 personal sessions and have videos of all of them that I can use to continue my progress. … Continue reading Ki Hara – helping my recovery – the sequel

Ki Hara – helping my recovery

I recently read a few medical studies regarding regaining strength following Cushing's. The study found most of the participants lost grip strength and leg muscle function and that with no deliberate intervention following surgical remission, this did not improve. I have decided to try and fight that and will document my progress on this blog. … Continue reading Ki Hara – helping my recovery

New Year 2018 – Health and fitness

Everyone is doing it at the moment so why not jump on the bandwagon? Now is the perfect time to look back on what has happened, what I have learnt over the last year and look ahead to what 2018 can bring me. I was mainly inspired by the comments on this post over on … Continue reading New Year 2018 – Health and fitness

Health and fitness – August 2017

I'm just going to look embarassed and shuffle my feet a little bit. This month really didn't go well again. I'm not even going to bother explaining myself as it's all just excuses. At the end of the day it doesn't matter what the reason is, I have the willpower to just say no so … Continue reading Health and fitness – August 2017

Health and fitness – May 2017

Here we go, the reset that I mentioned in my last health and fitness post. Obviously the starting stats aren't going to be great, that's the point of needing this reset but it will make it look better when I succeed this time, right? As I said in the previous post, I'm going to include … Continue reading Health and fitness – May 2017

Health and Fitness post #10 01/04/2017 – A fresh start to the health posts

I'm making a change. Well actually a lot of changes but little ones. Nothing has been working so far and I know entirely why; I keep making excuses, then get annoyed when I inevitably take a step backwards and make more excuses as to why it's failing or then go on a super huge change … Continue reading Health and Fitness post #10 01/04/2017 – A fresh start to the health posts

Health and fitness post #8 01/02/2017

It's that time again! It seems to have come round really quickly this time, where has January gone? Weight loss goals Yay! What a loss, happy to be down 7 pounds.

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

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

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
