I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

I don't think I've heard of them CJ.  I'm not a big biscuit person, but hob nobs tend to have the same effect on me as bread.  Not all biscuits are as bad as that.

But I guess that if I'm giving up gluten then I need to find alternative comfort foods to pizza and dough balls.

There are GF pizzas Caz.

Just given myself a kick to go out for a run. Back late.

Supercaz, Mrs crimble's make rather lovely GF macaroons
09/01/2013 at 20:16

I agree by 'eck Mrs Crimbles macaroons are good and don't look or taste GF.

I ran/walked 2.4 miles. Pleased with the effort.

Evening lovelies. 

Hope its good news from the dietician by eck.

I've done a lunch time run for half an hour today.  It was lovely to go into work this morning without that sinking anxiety feeling. I found myself singing I can see clearly now the rain has gone. 

Caz - can I join you for a bounce please?

Macaroons - ooooo lovely. GF or non GF would all be fine in the soup cave.

Little moo has put on 100g in the last 6 months. That's not enough so he is now not allowed any cow's milk protein (on top of all his other exclusions).so we now have new milk (which requires much acting from to persuade him to even taste it), and a whole load of cooking to do. It's a 6 week trial. I need hugs and chocolate

((((((by 'eck))))))

Green and Blacks any good? Milk or plain?

I just had a HUGE green and blacks selection box of 25 massive bars of green ans blacks for Xmas..... Awesome. Evening folks! X

Whooah!  Who's dishing out Green and Blacks whilst I was still out and about!

Lost a close game tonight.  Stopped everything I could then beaten by wicked deflections.

By 'eck, didn't realise you had tinnitus. Me too.

Hugs to everyone but particularly ((((spotty dog)))) for his op tomorrow.

LR, it is mean. How do you manage to stop it driving you crazy?
I'm not sure what make it is, but we do have spiced chilli chocolate, grown up chocolate orange, and some lovely Madagascan vanilla

I love spotty dogs.Hope he's okay. I did wonder what a spotty hug was lol. I thought perhaps the little uns had measles or something. 

The only thing wrong with green and blacks is that it insists on linking every time its typed.

Ooh, the Madagascan vanilla sounds interested. 

I assume the question was about the tinnitus.  I consider myself lucky as I obviously don't have it as bad as some people.  The main thing is it doesn't seem to stop me sleeping - but I think it may be part of the problem of me feeling so rubbish in the mornings.  It's worse at some times than others though so can be really difficult to cope with.

Oh, and special hugs should also be extended your way for your dietician woes.  (((((by 'eck)))))

I wouldn't mind if the Green and  Blacks link took me too a real bar.  As it doesn't I'm putting an extra space in to foil their plan.

Yah - for positive vibes from Bricki's blog.  I think it's safe for you to read it again Caz.

SD - you must have been getting very confused thinking SOLB seemed to so pleased the minis had measles on a regular basis!

Arrrr!  Spotty hugs are definitely as good as you said they were.

You've just caught me up late again - not quite for the usual reasons but because I'm actually feeling quite good right now.  Haven't had much of that lately so wanted to make the most of it - but hopefully it's a good sign of more to come.

Been thinking more about Mr F's article and it certainly provides a basis for a more positive way of thinking when I really don't feel up to something.  At the moment I push myself because if I feel if I don't do something I'm losing and my depression is winning.  The fact is that I'm not well and I do need more rest and recovery time so I just have to look at those situations like that.

Spotty hugs are actually nicer than the pictures show cos he snuggles right in he's boisterous and mischievous and full of energy then sleepy and cuddly and generally soppy. He's just fabulous, I hate the though of him going in for an op but it's been worse knowing the poor boy is hurting. 

Hopelly LR you'll wake up feeling happy tomorrow too, you deserve a sunshine day or three  

I'm burning myself out I think, trying to fight a bit too hard but I'm scared to ease off the pressure. 

It's difficult isn't it, cos when you truly are too ill then you just need more rest and recovery and not doing that makes things worse. Equally though there's a period where you feel really low and tired and it's cos you aren't doing enough - and even though it's the last thing you want to do pushing yourself in just about every exhausting direction is the only thing that helps. I don't understand how you are supposed to tell the difference. 

I wish I knew cos I know after the event that I really couldnt have done any more and should have backed off and rested instead of piling guilt and stuff on top of the illness when I was already too poorly. I just don't know which is which. I wonder if I ever will. 

I'm starting new start number gazillion and eleven tomorrow with regards to exercise. I'm going to try another run. I'm planning on giving my months notice at the gym cos my asthma means I'm not getting good value for money at the moment - usually I get into a routine and go every day and it's not a problem but I haven't been for over a month. That said I'm using it as a positive. I'm cancelling the membership but going to use it during the months notice to build up a base level of fitness. Then I'm going to use the money I've saved on membership to go to the zumba class in the village to meet local people and to join a running club. Sounds like a plan to me  

Be careful staying up LR, being tired can drag your mood down and make you more sensitive to stresses I'd hate for you to jepardise your lovely good mood
