Lots Of Gains And Loses
While in the shower this evening (its were I think best)
I was thinking how much I have gained
in the last 18 months since being here.
Firstly, I have lost 2 stone (28lb) in weight
no diet, no trying it just came off on its own
I can eat things like
Double eggs and chips with bread and butter
and not worry about putting weight on
I do eat better now
Have breakfast something I often skipped before
I have noticed I drink a lot less tea
and drink a lot more water, just the stuff from the tap
don't like the fancy stuff
My nails have improved so much
I have never managed to really grow my nails before
You would think doing more manual stuff I would have no nails.
I sleep better, so does Martin when he is here
no waking in the middle of the night
I go to bed tired and wake up feeling rested.
My fitness has really improved
I can carry 25kg sacks of feeds no problem
race up and down the fields without getting out of breath
I feel my stress levels have diminished
there isn't anything here to get stressed about
My health is overall brilliant
I haven't had to visit the doctor since being here
(must get registered)
I have only had one cold nothing really, one sore throat,
No tummy bugs, very few headaches,
I think that is more to do with not being in contact with a lot of people.
I feel happier and healthier and defiantly a lot calmer :-)
