My Thoughts This Sunday

May 29, 2016

Well my lie in and sleep didn't go so well, but I did chill and stay in bed a little longer than normal. 

Today I want you to think about this quote and myself included needs to follow it!!

 Today's Vibes.

 

Firstly I woke up to the post that Alpro have a CASHEW milk - oh my word! I need to hunt this down, I drink Almond milk like it goes out of fashion so the thought of cashew has my mouth watering. So now that is a mission I am going to take on - hunting down this product, so I can try it for you all and tell you how it is.


Then my B12 spray was FINALLY back in stock in Holland and Barrett - I have waited days for this, of course I told you guys the other the day the spray is a lot better as the body absorbs all the nutrients and it goes straight into your blood stream, where as the tablets have to reach your stomach may get mixed up in other foods and not be fully absorbed. So the the spray is worth investing in. I also came across a vitamin D spray too. So I am going to add that to the basket - as B12 and Vitamin D are the two nutrients and vitamins this diet is slightly under the recommended guideline for. So best to get the best the best products and ensure we are all well balanced.

Then my book review came back - pretty quickly as only submitted it last night and I still wasn't quite set. I had spent SO long converting so many things and I wanted to make a pretty big change, I sat there and looked at the screen thinking do I want to do this - I know the set up as it is, is in the correct order... 

However I took the plunge - and prayed.

My prayer came true I literally had one or two things that had moved out of place slightly and that was it. So I was totally relieved and able to re-submit for review and proofing quickly.

Maybe the God's are watching over me today I sure hope so. Keep the good vibes rolling please. I want this book to be the best I can make it. I have worked so hard on it all.

So all your support guys is most appreciated and I am so grateful.

 

I just want to sort of dedicate this post to my dearest Mama too - the past two weeks have been really, really tough and she is always there for support! I don't know what I would do without her - I love her so much and this is making me tearful, but I appreciate all she does for me! Like today she knows I need to chillax, but with migraines I can't sit and watch TV etc as I can't focus and the four walls of my house especially after all the editing I have been doing do drive you crazy, but of course I am still a bit too weak to do anything 'too much' and don't really want to be around a big group of people its too over-facing so she has invited me round for drinks and for me to take some food to eat dinner with them - which is kind of them. Now the only issue is deciding what I want to eat and cook - of course RICE - but what type and what am I fancying ? Tough life decisions right there!

So I best get thinking up some exciting creation to enjoy.

 

I just want to add that anyone suffering from depression - you should really try to push yourself sometimes to get out of the house, you will feel SO much better, I know that really I just want to go and hibernate but that will just allow my depression to spiral out of control, yes I am tired and drained but I know I need those little trips out, little days out to stop me over-thinking, worrying, getting myself anxious - I will just set myself back and drain myself mentally! Spending time with loved ones, short trips, coffee etc - low key but take a few hours or the day, really helps. 

Just try it - if you are sat in bed now you are probably worrying, feeling guilty, self-loathing, the list goes on. Just take a moment - call a friend or family member, ask what their plans are and see if they have an hour to spare, hopefully they will do ( and if they know and understand the situation being a good friend they will make the time ) and simply do something small, a cuppa at their house, a coffee in a shop, go for lunch etc, then get yourself out of bed have a relaxing bath and put some clothes on you feel comfy in - you don't have to go out like some celeb, just tie your hair back in a pony, leggings and a comfy top and you will rock it. Then see how you feel at the end of the day - write it down journal it. Personally I write my diary in the morning to get all my thoughts out and start the day fresh. With insomnia I have many hours in the night to think so this works for me, but find a way for you.

I hope this helps.
Again the message is don't suffer in silence - and life is WAY to short to be sat in bed all day watching the hours go by. We ALL deserve the pleasures we can get from life. So take them whenever possible.


Right now however, sweet potatoes and lunch are calling my name - yum! 

So I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday - spend your time wisely with people you love, eat the right food you enjoy, indulgence in your passions - sport, writing, cooking etc and appreciate every moment of the day.

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
