Trying to get rid of that extra pudding you piled on during the festive season may have you wishing you had donated most of the cash you used to inflate your tummy by sending it off to the East African famine relief fund, or was your excuse 'They are all Muslims so why worry', then after Christmas I'll get into a detox program".
Well if you are daft enough to fall for these detox and weight losing promo's, only your stupidity will be the winner, losing your money would be more likely than losing that extra weight.
From diets based on raw fruit and vegetables and colonic hydrotherapy, there are dozens of treatments and other chemical products claiming to cleanse the body. For some people these products could be dangerous, and claims made about detoxing are more than likely false.
There is one simple rule for losing weight, that is 'Eat smaller portions' there is no magic short cut, you have to eat less and exercise more. If only I could stick to the rules.
However the ever changing rules with blogging have not helped in keeping it simple, the mass of changes and regulations plus one recently, have me thinking it's time to go, My time is becoming more valuable and there are things which become neglected. A few fun opportunities and other options can take up the slack, and a less sedentary lifestyle would enhance my weight loss program. I do drink a lot of water, do not smoke or drink coffee and walk a fair amount and still work in our garden and more recently have cut down the size of meal portions and added more salads, fewer spuds -less dairy and bread. Last year I lost eight kilos within 19 days during my stay in Gosford Hospital in NSW, my next visit for surgery is planned for January 4, not sure for how long the stay will be. but working on an average of losing one lb or 500 grams per day, hospital food would be the best option for losing weight.
Exercising at this point in time is out, so is the Sun and high humidity, So a (yawn) a quick nod is in the offing; but first things first - traveling companion Henry Falcon needs attention from the angels who have saved him from the scrap yard over the years, will have brekky first then pop him down the road. From the bedroom window I am looking at a variety of birds perched on the garden shed, but none on adjacent roof tops, they too waiting for their brekky provided by their human.
Breakfast - baked beans on toast with a coupleoveggs - should get me moving soon with some wind abaft the beam, might take my variety of Vit pills later - Could get caught short away from base,
Now the sun has gone and it is overcast - must get moving. Back soon. ....Vest.......
