I’d forgotten the importance of a soundtrack…

Just a quick post… I’ve put workouts back on the priorities list. I’m starting to feel better already. 30 plus minutes on the cross trainer and 80’s and 90’s synth pop. What a beautiful combination πŸ˜‰

Hope everyone is having a great weekend x

    1. Hi Feeling, I’m better, thank you πŸ™‚ I got calcium/magnesium/vit D tablets and feel better since I started taking them. Although magnesium is sometimes used as a laxative, so its a fine line, lol!

      I fell out of the exercise routine, as I’m not good at making myself work out after a day at work. I’m away for work tomorrow until weds and I’m a bit nervous, so my mind is elsewhere at the moment. But no, things are OK.
      Im happy to be sober, happy that its one less thing to wrestle with. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for checking up on me, I appreciate it.
      Hugs xx

      1. πŸ™‚ Nice that you are feeling better. Did I ever list Barbara O’Neill here? She’s on YouTube, she has a series of 10 vids where she tells about health and how the body works. Also Eric Berg on YouTube is really cool.
        Yeah, being happy not to have to wrestle with alcohol is NICE. πŸ™‚ It gives peace of mind. :-).
        Enjoy your free time! πŸ™‚
        Hugs, Feeling

      2. Yes I did look at a couple of the Barbara O’Neill videos, and I bought the Joan Matthews Larson book too – I’ll take it with me on my course and have a read.
        Yes my mind is certainly a lot calmer at the moment – a lot less negative chatter going on in there.
        Hugs πŸ™‚ x


      3. I think they probably do, well some, anyway. I think it’s kind of a side effect of our being able to think about the fact that we’re thinking – an unfortunate hazard of being human πŸ™‚ although I think some people are better able to handle it than others. I definitely think a nutritional approach is the way forward, but I seem to have trouble sticking with a plan for any length of time. I have a whole board on Pinterest about motivation – need to consult it! That being said, I notice signs all over the place – messages reminding me of the importance of good nutrition. If I can keep my objective in mind, ie stabilising my mood, perhaps I will have more inclination to commit to it! X

      4. Yeah, nutritionwise I don’t stick to a plan, but I go with the flow – I have too much on my mind to put force on myself in subjects that are not money or work related. However, I just noticed today that I am getting nauseous now when I eat a large bunch of sugar, meat or greasy stuff. It sounds like that is bad but I think my natural warning signs are redeveloping. Slowly, things might be improving. πŸ™‚
        I have motivational problems too, but I’m more of trying to understand why and how because I still feel that pushing myself might mean that I’m only forcing myself harder up the wrong ladder. Not sure though. Actually, not sure anything lately. :-(.
        1 Spoon of linseed oil, 1 closed handful of nuts through my muesli every morning, that is what I do now. Ooh, and vitamin B1 in brewers yeast pills. Hmmm…. Yes!! I got it! πŸ™‚ That is what is causing my high blood pressure: the yeast pills, they increase bloodpressure by 30mmHg. Aaah…. Still not sure why I did not feel it though.
        Lacking vitamin B1 causes Beriberi, which is very similar to the shaking and forgetfulness of alcoholics. It is Singalese for ‘I can’t, I can’t. I have that. So I was adding B1. Hmmm, better not take the yeast version. Or the soy sauce that I added to my food daily. Well, thank you for listening to my monologe. πŸ™‚ I am delighted with what I found out by explaining this to you – bu you must be bored by now. 😦
        Nutrition is very important, 7 months ago I said it was MOST important. By now say that mind, body and spirit should be equally satisfied, and start with that which is most out of balance. I wish my current blog layout still allowed me to do polls. Can you do polls?

      5. I’m never bored reading your comments or posts, feeling! In fact its fascinating because you explain so much of your thought process. And its thoughts where I tend to hide or get trapped. So its interesting to know how other people think. Particularly about something like this, which we are both investigating as a way to get the best out of our sober lives πŸ˜€
        Glad you had an insight, too.
        As for polls, I wouldn’t have the first idea where to start with one of those so I can’t really tell you either way! What poll are you wanting to set up? Xx


      6. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your interest. I write in detail because I think the healing is in the places where we don’t want to look and where it ‘smells funny’ or exactly where we are uncomfortable.
        I am not here to teach, I try to stay away from the we form of writing but if I do somehting it is logging my progress for myself and somehow it feels for somebody else whom I have not yet identified. Also I want to show where I do my real developmental work, which is where it is akward, uncomfortable and dark and that it, with help and attention becomes aligned, loving and light. Not always, but that means I haven’t found the roots yet. Does that make sense? I do sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable myself with my post. Always wonder how other people think about it.
        A poll would be on nutrition, food, newly developed addictions. Hope. Fear of relapse. Anything and everything :-).
        Have a nice evening / day,
        xx, Feeling
