I’m Huge but Shrinking!

Its been week one of my not Gluten diet  and I must say I am feeling better. It isn’t anecdotal either, I actually am feeling more like old self, more than I have in ages.

The first thing I have noticed is my head is clearer.  Almost like a fog has begun to lift and my thoughts are coming into focus. For those that have never experienced such a feeling it is sort of like being not quite awake, you go through your day in a bit of daze, can’t make decisions, your thoughts are muddled, easily confused etc…. You know something not right but you are so confused and unfocused you really can’t tell what.

It is early days and I am curious to see what next week brings.

MaxineMy measurements have reduced more than I have expected:

Hips: has gone from 128 cm to 123.5cm /48 inches

Waist: 113cm to 106cm /41 inches

Bust: 121cm to 113cm/44 inches

I have hoped on the scales all week and have instead enjoyed the shrinking tape measure.

Today I restarted my exercise program which will consist of a 30 minute walk/jog/walk, over slight undulating ground. Next week once my system has become accustom to this I step it up bit. But steady steps I think will be the go.

 

Fingers Crossed onwards and upwards.

The Elephant in the Room

This photo is next in the series Hidden Places!

Taken in Thailand, any idea where we are?

I will mention these Elephants are very well looked after and are working animals. In my time here, all the animals we saw were treated with respected and care.

and the Crowd goes wild

It was an amazing place to visit and will happily go back, next time might even volunteer or go on a trek.

Leave me a comment let me know where you think we are…

 

Hidden Places.

It doesn’t matter were on this planet you are there is always hidden places.

Places most locals know about and kept hidden from the new-comer or the visitor. One of the challenge we like to give ourselves is to find these spots. By doing so you are granted the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and history of an area.

Some of these places have spectacular scenery and all you need to do is step around the next bend or be brave enough to push the branch out of the way. Others are not beautiful, some you have venture down the dark stairs, or follow the dank dark corridor to find but if you do they will offer a social commentary you would have missed and others yet still proved you with a view of the world beneath you feet or above your head.

if you just looked up this it is amazing what you can see

From time to time I am hoping to include images of just such hidden places.

I hope you enjoy the beauty, the mystery, the fun and sometimes the frightening images and adventures to follow.
