Regular Servicing

Regular servicing is what we do to look after our cars but how many of us look after ourselves in the same way?  Yesterday I washed my car; filled the windscreen wash and today filled it with diesel.  Earlier on this week the car was serviced.  I was surprised it didn’t cost as much as I thought – maybe because it’s serviced regularly.

I wonder what funny looks I would get if I didn’t wash or shower on a regular basis?  I suspect that people would move away from me very quickly.

I wear glasses and I regularly clean the lenses so I can see out of them.  Not having windscreen washer in my car would mean I couldn’t see clearly.

And diesel – well that fuels my car and makes sure I do get from A to B.  If you think I’m wittering on – I’m not.  So many people I speak to don’t look after themselves and then wonder why their body ‘breaks down’!

I meet so many people who look after their cars more than they do they’re bodies.  Our bodies are the only ‘real’ house we live in  so let’s look after them.

One of the ways I do is to take our delicious drinking gel on a daily basis.

Another is to regularly see my Chiropractor – Vicky Sutton.  My body gets regular servicing from Vicky and so keeps everything in the right place which means I’ve less chance of ‘breaking down’ and having to call out the AA.

 

Christmas Time Mistletoe and Wine

Elves

Christmas Time Mistletoe and Wine – I wonder what that conjures up for you?

Personally there are aspects of Christmas time I love.  The memories of Christmas Past being one, or looking for the satsuma and apple at the bottom of the pillow case.  I love the cosiness of it and being able to shut off the rest of the world for one day.  Okay, I do let the In-laws in!  Watching people’s faces as they see what is in their parcel.  Leaving the men to do the cooking!!

We very seldom have Mistletoe in the house but, maybe, we should change that this year?

We definitely have wine in the house.  Not to go over the top, but have a special bottle, for a special day.  A special day to spend some quality time with quality people.

BUT……… it’s the run up to it all that really stresses me out.  Writing the Christmas cards out; hoping I haven’t forgotten anyone AGAIN this year.  The crowds as I go shopping, although I usually find something in our wonderful products to give to loved ones.  People seem to change personalities whilst I’m out.  Other shoppers seem to be very stressed themselves.  I wonder why they put themselves through it.

I know not everyone is lucky enough to have family or friends to spend Christmas with, so – I’ll spare a thought for them this year.  Plus I’ll make my usual donations to Charities, that mean something to me.  Oh, and listen to Christmas Time Mistletoe and Wine playing on the radio, as it seems to every year.

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure seems to affect people as they grow older – or so a nurse told me recently.  In my time in Corporate life I saw lots of people having high blood pressure, often demonstrated with a very red face.

I talk with people who are looking to lose weight.  They are concerned about developing Diabetes and high blood pressure.  They understand that carrying that extra weight brings other complications along the way – not just having to buy bigger clothes.

At the beginning of last year I was far too heavy for my height. If I’d been able to grow a little I’d have been fine.  The scales couldn’t be blamed any longer.  I made a decision to lose weight.  But how much?  Too much in one go and I knew I would fall at the first hurdle.  The little voice in my head telling me I couldn’t do it before I started!  Then there was the fear of losing it and putting it back on again, and some.

Decision time.

  • I decided how much I wanted to lose
  • I divided it into chunks for the year
  • I committed to a 9 day cleanse
  • I didn’t beat myself up if I strayed for a day
  • I took a photo of myself at the beginning and at intervals along the way
  • I kept my old wardrobe
  • I committed to a nutritional programme
  • I didn’t deny myself

Where am I just over a year later?  I didn’t lose the three stone I set myself.  I’ve since found if I did that then I would be underweight.  I have lost nearly two stone.  My clothes are a lot looser; some I’m going to have to give away or keep as a reminder of what I used to wear.  I don’t feel so tired; after all there’s not so much of me to carry around.  I’m getting lots of lovely compliments.  I almost feel as though there are too many positives I can’t write them all down.

The BEST thing though is that I know I have new eating habits which means I’m not denying myself anything.  This all makes for a happier, stress free and – oh nearly forgot to say.  My blood pressure was measured the other day 124/82 – near perfect.

She took a corner and then said she hadn’t eaten breakfast either.  Do that regularly and she’ll run out of fuel!

Christmas Time

MisteltoeChristmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine – one of my most popular songs from Christmas.  I cannot believe, as I’m sure some of you are also thinking, that a month today is Christmas Day.

Clock

Time has gone so quickly this year – seemingly more quickly than last.  Logic tells me it’s still the same number of days as it was the year before but my head is saying otherwise.

 Stressed men

Some people find it so stressful.  Men are still shopping on Christmas Eve hoping they find THE present that will bring smiles to their nearest and dearest faces.  Well let me and my Elves take the stress out of Christmas for you.  You sit down in your armchair and sing Christmas Time, Mistletoe and drink the Wine.  Take a look at this brochure; send me email or text OR order direct.  It will be all be delivered to your door with no worries.

Elves

HOWEVER, you need to do it NOW.  Christmas will be here VERY soon and my Elves cannot extend their working week. They have homes to go to.
