Is a beige buffet specific to a Slimming World Christmas meal? It puts you off eating anything very much because you're restricted to eating beige-coloured food only perhaps??
We've also been celebrating REF results at work - good improvements for the uni I'm at now, and stunning results for the one I worked at for the past 7 years (and therefore the results that I contributed to).
And of course, the day has finally arrived I just have 4 interviews to do this morning before I can leave and run for the airport - but nothing can spoil my good mood
Chuggy - I had lots of scar tissue in my knee which prevented it from bending. Once the worst bits were broken down, I still had a residual lump and the physio did acupuncture on it to help it break down. I'm not a believer in the woo-woo side of acupuncture - this was rather different. Sticking a needle in the lump helped to increase the blood flow to the area and break the tissue down. Maybe find a physio who does acupuncture and get a few needles stuck in it?
There is good scientific evidence for acupuncture in pain relief as it has been found to create new pathways in the brain which stop the brain from registering the original pain. But this wasn't how we used it on this occasion. I've not found it to be any good for anything else!
I have had a nice, productive day in London town and am heading off for a christmas meal with a friend shortly.
Thanks to whoever recommended Maffetone, btw (Larry and Cheesy I think?) - I've got one of his books and its starting to make good sense.
Sluggy - I hope you are feeling better this morning.
Yums - the benefit of going away on holiday over Christmas is that we largely avoid all the stresses. Our Christmas day is simplicity - we pick MiL up from the care home, have a nice lunch at the restaurant in the hotel, walk in the gardens, tea on the terrace, possibly go for a drive, take her home. And that's it. With some presents on the side, of course I thoroughly recommend it to any who are considering the possibility of going away at Christmas at some point in the future.
Feeling all stressy at work though Everybody wanting things done before Christmas and it makes me cross because it's an artificial deadline and stuff won't happen over the Christmas break so why load the pressure on in trying to get it done before??
Had a nice Christmas meal out with the swimming club yesterday evening although still no swimming because of cough / cold / sniffles. Starting to feel better today and looking forward to swimming outdoors in the sun soon
