life changes


I made a point a few weeks ago after being very poorly to choose to eat a lot healthier. Unable to eat for three weeks due to the fact no matter what I ate as soon as it hit my stomach I became violently sick with agonizing stomach ache, back ache and abdominal pain. It was a pretty terrifying time for me as it came out of the blue and really knocked me for six. I absolute hate being ill anything that makes me panic about being poorly or having to get tested. That was nearly two months ago and nearly two stone shed and the illness under control I am feeling far more like myself.
So to treat myself I had a little shopping spree in New Look. Hello new autumnal knits and high waisted jeans. I am a little bit in love with the deep green light knit top that I am wearing which is from new look the deep colour is rather lovely. Here is me wishing I could buy them in every colour.

I am fully filled to the nines with Vitamin tablets, supplements and plenty of fruit to get my insides all happy and loved feeling again. Now just learning to exercise properly is my problem. I have re-taken up yoga, god i love it. Just dealing with the crunches and squats is the pain at the moment...I have discovered I have zero stomach muscles. I will have buns of steal! haha

I only have one more stone to loose before my sisters hen do here is hoping I can avoid chocolate until then, not entirely sure I have the will power but I am really enjoying eating lovely home made food and fresh fruit, it's good to be on the mend and thank you to the lovely blogger ladies who supported me through the rubbish stressful times.

  3. Glad you're feeling more like yourself, it sounds really awful that you couldn't keep your food down without bringing it back up again! Fruit will definitely do you some good, get those vitamins rolling ay! I tried on that jumper not long ago and loved it, may have to repay a visit seeing as it was pay day today. You look fantastic, take care

  5. Oh poor you, sounds like a horrible illness. i'm getting over a minor cold, and even that was frustrating so I can imagine that must have been tough! On the bright side though, I like your new endeavor to keep fit. I'm attempting to do the same, feels brilliant! Personally I would get into running loads first, and then do all the crazy hard crunches later when fitness levels have improved! Nothing like a gorgeous run to start or end the day! Good luck x

  7. So glad to hear you are on the mend and being so positive. I also recently took up yoga! I did a post on it on my blog, I just love it, it's amazing how good it makes you feel afterwards (apart from the aches the next day!) Definitely worth it though. Good for you as well for being so strong :) Take care xxx

  12. I am glad you are feeling better - I had a cold which sounds a bit better than what you had (you poor thing) but it has kick started my healthy eating too as I don't want to be ill all the time as it is no fun! Love that top - it really suits you! :)

  23. The "I'm hideously ill" diet is never the best, but at least something came out of feeling so terrible! I start healthy eating tomorrow so you will encourage me that extra bit xx

  24. i have discovered that simple and easily available things like honey, cinnamon, apple and commonly found home trees are the best companions for our health.
    By the way, keep going on towards better health.
    Nice blog.
