Self!

I am interested in psychology, visualisation, the power of our own mind, how our brain works. So I was looking into neural pathways…

 

brain-neurons_849_990x742
3d neuron

 

The human brain may contain up to one trillion neurons. These nerve cells are interconnected, as shown in this microscopic image, so that they can transmit electrical impulses—and information—to other cells.

Apparently our brain also clears away unused neurons…

So this is me clearing away the old & creating the new…Can we literally change the way we think by trusting our brain to create new pathways? Aka neural path ways…

There is so much about personality disorders, depression, etc. Is it possible to learn new ways of thinking, just by making the effort to change the way we think. As in ‘I see that in myself’ then learn new ways around that negativity…

I know positive thinking works. I know visualisation works. I have proved this to my self many times. I have suffered from depression in the past. I literally hit rock bottom, then found a way to clamber my way out of that deep treacherous dark cavon of despair, through self ‘cognitive therapy’ I never realised what I was doing, until I looked up CBT…

So ‘Cognitive behaviour therapy’ is like creating new neural pathways in our brain? That makes a lot of sense to me…

Obviously you have to put the effort in & you do have to learn ways to let go of certain negative thoughts. I have got this aggravating {aggravating to me} long memory. I can remember details from as far back as when I was 2. I remember near enough every negative thing in my past life. Those thoughts, those so called memories, would just POP! right in my head…Ugh! I have learned to think ‘STOP! thinking’ & distract myself…

The other week I had what I now realise was a panic attack. It dawned on me…’I was having panic attacks’ all these years, but I taught myself coping strategies. If I allow myself to think deeply about something which hurts me, it can lead to so called anxiety & stress…

Taking the myer brigs personality test…I took it 4-5 times, to be sure that I really am a INFJ…OMFG! It is the best thing I ever done for myself. Apparently us INFJ’s are rare; only 1% of the population. When I started reading all I could on my INFJ personality. It was like a light went on & a heavy burden was lifted off me…The burden of ‘Disliking myself’ Of criticising myself. Of self loathing…I am a pretty special person, now I actually like myself…when I spent years thinking I was a horrible, bad, unlikable person…

INFJ (introversion, intuition, feeling, judging) is an initialism used in the publications of the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to refer to one of the sixteen personality types. The MBTI assessment was developed from the work of prominent psychiatrist Carl Jung in his book Psychological Types.

I’m still unlikeable to the mainstream peeps, but who cares…

I know of at least 4 people with personality disorders. A narcissist, borderline personality & 2 histrionic peeps…I have taken the personality disorder tests as well. I took the test as ‘Nervous break down me’ &…well…me! Nervous break down me was bordering on border line personality disorder…but…I don’t need attention, or have a break down at what I perceive as rejection…

Nuff said for now…I am going to build some more neural pathways, lol…Or just ‘Read!’…

An INFJ sub is a paradox…

what-you-allow-is-what-will-continue-quote-1

I feel so much more calm & content, since making the decision to ditch the scene. A huge sigh of relief, like a HUGE! bitchy burden has been lifted off my shoulders…

Ryan is popping back this afternoon from number 51, to visit. He moved out yesterday morning {Smiles} He is probably picking up more of his stuff, but his making it around 2.30pm, so he’ll see his Dad as well, so Dad will probably get to see him more then when he was dossing here. I mean living here, lol…

Anyway…As I was going to use as a blog prompt…”What you allow, is what will continue”…It may seem a tad dramatic to some. Well many. Because the scene clique mentality is rife & cliques think enmass!…I am no longer allowing myself to feel that niggling aggravation, because I feel disappointed & disheartened. Also used & abused…

Its like someone who attended a few of my parties. He is a really nice bloke. A quite distinguished gentleman, we got on quite well…Though there was not exactly any conversation. He was just caning me…HARD! One strength fits all…HARD! Too HARD! He is one of the few I have had to stop. I don’t use a silly safe word, I just say, quite firmly ‘That hurts too much!’ & if it carries on ‘I have had enough!’…

Anyway. He sent me a pm. I never told him who I was…but he wanted to chat. In the end I decided not to chat, because I knew I would not play with him. I could take a lot of pain, I was a bit of a pain slut…but I love it for the after effects; it is not a competition, in the end it got to over crowded. I don’t care that so & so took 50 & never moved, in fact she bratted in a whiny voice ‘Have you started yet’…{Yawns!}

Oops! I brought back the disappointing, disparaging, often disheartening, so called fecking scene into my mind…See ‘Mind fuck!’…I believe in the power of our own mind & my mind is telling me. No SHOUTING! at me. This is not right. This feels all wrong…

Personally…I don’t feel the BDSM/spanking scene is emotionally, mentally healthy. Not for a person who is being themselves & for a INFJ…who can spot a fake person at whatever paces. The scene is a CONSTANT! mind fuck!…

Soooo! I need to remove myself from the situation which can potentially cause me to be fucked ‘Mentally’…Not even psychically. Jeeze!

As my husband describes me. I am a straight thinking person. The scene is…well…full of kinks…

…& breath…relax

In with calm…Out with stress…

I am going to stop now; go & make coffee, then look at my gorgeous plants. My plants sooth my soul. All the BDSM/spanking scene does is AGGRAVATE! & GRIND! on my every frazzled from the clique peeps ‘nerves!’…

Actually…I’m making it sound way worse then it really is. In reality, I am laughing as I blog this…Not crazy, lost it, manic, like…noooo…more 80% calm me 20% can see all the fecking scene flaws…

Deep breaths are good. Calming, soothing meditating is a must. My indoor garden. Who can resist. Grating clique peeps…Pffft!!!

Coffee time…

Here is some more photo’s of my indoor garden…

 

Posted in Opinion, Pep Talk, Self hypnosis, Word Prompt

Desire This – Imagine That – Picture This – Create That – Fulfil My Wildest Subbie Fantasies…

via Daily Prompt: Imaginary

I have not done any word prompt blog posts for a while, but this word has prompted me to write about something, which is also the answer to a question I have been milling over in my mind, never actually settling on any one thing, until now…

“Imaginary!”…Or should I say ‘My imagination’…

Before settling down to blog, I am going to get more coffee & put on some self hypnosis. I like to blog whilst listening to self hypnosis, rather then lay down with my eyes shut…

BRB!

Coffee – Check!

Self hypnosis – {Self Hypnosis for Mind Programming Success (Confidence / Motivation / Positivity) – Self Hypnosis for Mind Programming Success (Confidence / Motivation / Positivity) } – Check!

I need to use my imagination ‘Fantasy’ to fulfil my subbie dreams…& other parts of my life too, but first I want to work out my sub life. I was reading some of the posts, in a few groups I joined in Fetlife…I realised why I lost my ‘insatiable subbie self’…I was being myself, rather then using my imagination, to be someone else…

So now I am going to use my imagination. What I am looking for does not exist anymore. So I am going to create what I want, my own fantasy ‘melodrama’ sub life, through writing my own stories, using my own imagination. The fantasies in my mind put into words…

The self hypnosis I am listening to as I type, is suggesting I use an imaginary stop sign, to…well ‘stop’ negative thoughts. I have been using a similar thing to stop me thinking over past hurts, frustrations, embarrassments. If a negative past thought pops into my head, I think ‘STOP THINKING!’ until it goes out of my head…

I believe there is such a thing as psychic attack, as in someone saying, thinking negative, hateful thoughts about you, sending you negative vibes. Sometimes I avoid blogging or commenting in a certain scene in my life, because I want to stay under their bitchy radar. Sounds silly I know…

I just avoid giving the gossips any gossip. Or the bitches anything to bitch about. I literally steer clear, because I don’t need the unnecessary stress, from the unprovoked hassle. Keeping yourself to yourself appears to offend, lol…So I lurk! I read the threads, I read the comments, I laugh at the childish drama, but I don’t dare comment. Otherwise those negative people, would have the opportunity to send me their negative vibes…

Soooo! Use my imagination. Create my own fantasy sub life…Ohh! Isn’t that like having an imaginary friend? lol…Hmmm! Better that, then dealing with negative crap, from negative people…

To use the power of your own mind, you need to really believe in yourself. Any self sabotaging, self doubt just undoes all the positive thinking. I believe I can write my own fantasy stories. I believe I don’t need to meet a new Dom. I can just create my own fantasy Dom & save myself lots of unnecessary hassle…

Maybe that holds me back, living in fantasy land…but…I believe that I will get myself past the negative thoughts about these people, whome I resent…It will get me to where I find what is right for me. After all, if I publish the stories in my blog, like minded people will find my stories, who knows where that can lead…

I have just listened to 2 self hypnosis YouTube video’s. Now I feel inspired to write. Just write what comes to my mind. Get over the resentment. Let it go. Move on. Create something 100 times more fulfilling in my sub life…

Nuff said for now…

Day Twenty One – End Of Week Three – Self Hypnosis – Four Golden Rules ‘I can make you thin’…

“Yaaay!” A successful diet day twenty. It is the dreaded week three weigh day tomorrow. As usual I am dreading it. Though I have been eating a lot less, a lot healthier & doing more exercise. I will weigh & measure myself tomorrow, with out putting any high expectations on myself…

Stay the same ‘happy I never gained’…Lose 0.25 lb ‘happy I am going in the right direction’. Any loss will be fantastically, fabulously, amazing. There will be NO! disappointment, noooo! feeling disheartened. NO! I know I am doing the right thing for my health & fitness. I trust my body to eventually balance itself & catch up. I am basically maintaining my ideal weight/size in advance…

Mum, 37, sheds five stone thanks to hypnosis app: ‘I never dreamed it would be so easy’

Really? I need to read this article…

Personally I think it come down to the power of her own mind. She really wanted to drop the weight & she believed the hypnosis was helping her. It probably took away the self doubt, which can lead to self sabotage…

“I would recommend Easy Loss to anyone – but I think you need to really want to do it. If you have that goal and really want it to work, then it will…”

I do listen to self hypnosis. I also follow the Paul McKenna ‘I can make you thin’ 4 golden rules. I eat when I am hungry, but use intermittent fasting as a safety net. By the time 13pm is here, I am truly hungry, but not famished…I am finding that I no longer feel the need to eat after 20pm. Eventually I will change my intermittent fasting times to 18:6…At the moment I am 14:10, but I don’t always want to eat after 20pm…

I feel in control of my eating. I am taking full responsibility for what goes in my mouth. I do not need to stuff my face all day long, into the early hours. Last night {Well this morning} I went to bed at 4am, feeling ‘Ugh!’…I had a really dry throat, even though I drank a glass of water, my stomach hurt & I felt nauseous…but I think it was more being over tired then actual hunger. Just emotional ‘Change the way I feel’ hunger. I did not give into it, I went to bed & eventually fell asleep {Groans!} I need to sort my sleeping out, but I have had this since I was born, all through my childhood, basically forever…

The second golden ‘I can make you thin’ rule, is to eat what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat. In other words listen to your body, when you listen to your body & trust it will make healthy choices. It is quite liberating. Yesterday I went to buy my daily sugar treat, but I didn’t fancy it, I fancied soup with bread. Thai carrot soup. It was scrumptious…& healthier. The second golden rule was a sticking point for me in the past. After all ‘Of course I want sweets, cake, chocolate, biscuits, takeaway, etc…’ Not anymore…

I want to be healthy, slim, fit, feel more attractive; a lot more then I want to eat sugar junk all day & have take away instead of a healthy home cooked meal from scratch..I realised how crappy the takeaway food was anyway. You cant beat home made chips, using fry light. I don’t see how people can think the fried cardboard & salty, greasy tasteless food, which cost LOTS! of money can be better. Mind you gourmet burgers…Yum! That reminds me. Minted lamb burgers. I can make my own…

Maaaybe it was the self hypnosis which changed my mind ‘For the better’ about food. Its like someone flipped a switch inside me & I saw the light, in the light was lots of healthy, tasty, satisfying food. Constantly eating sugar, so my blood sugar level spiked high, then dropped low, was keeping me fat. My body needed to produce insulin all the time, to deal with the sugar. Of course it stored the sugar as fat…

The third rule, eating slowly & consciously. I know of course you’ll conscious…but are you? When you are mindlessly speed eating, whilst watching tele. I have slowed my eating right down. I do chew my food right down before swallowing…but…The tele is on in the evening. I still concentrate on my food though. Especially when I can savour every mouthful & not just taste greasy, salty nothingness, which is processed food. It opens your taste buds as well as your mind…

The fourth rule. Which is pretty much ‘Duh! Common sense’…Has not always been ‘common sense’…especially with the mindless eating…Rule # 4 ‘STOP!’ eating when you feel full. Satisfied full. Not bloated. stuffed, feel nauseous full. Just that first twinge of fullness. I can leave food on my plate. My parents aren’t there to lecture me & make me stay at the table until I have cleared the plate…I have never forced my kids to clear their plate, or to eat food they don’t like…I no longer have a bloated feeling after eating. When I look down, now I see my boobs, not my stomach protruding like I am 9 months pregnant with tripplets…

Oops! Its 14 minutes into my eating time. I thought I felt hungry. Actual hunger. Hunger to nourish my body. No mindless stuffing. I am not a dustbin. I don’t need a constant supply of sugar to get me through the day…

Lunch time…

Posted in Detour On Weight Loss Journey, Motivation., Pep Talk, Self hypnosis, Weight loss journey

Day Sixteen – A Slight Detour To Get Back On The Straight Scenic Route…

Day fifteen was a mediocre diet day. I had pastry & cake with cream ‘Gasps!’…I still ate less, but I was more lax…but…one mediocre day does not have to turn into a disastrous week. So today is a strict day. A make up for the lax day. A eat salad & fish day…NO! CAKE!

Knowing my body I probably regained all the weight loss…Ummmm! lol…but…I don’t care. I am not going to beat myself up emotionally & start giving into the feelings that I ‘FAILED!’…Because I have not failed. Its one day ‘Get over it’ Don’t full apart ‘Move on!’…

I am just listening to self hypnosis as I blog. I find the suggestions which are going into my mind are quite helpful. Apparently I am going to feel good & confident…just listen to his voice & allow myself to relax…

Disaster happened when I decided to have salmon in pastry, instead of salmon cooked with herb’s & spices. Ohh! I also gave in to drinking a HIGH! sugar ginger beer. I thought I would really enjoy it. Nope! it tasted ‘Mediocre!’…That is my word for today…

It is the diet mentality…’Good!’ & ‘Bad!’…So I am trying to change the way I think & feel about eating, because this weight loss journey is going to succeed & I am going to maintain my weight loss. There is no lose weight – gain weight + some…

It does niggle at my mind, like a aggravating gnat flying around me…’Grrrr!’ Darn gnat bites, they do seem to find my AB- blood, tasty…I still fasted from 23pm, I will be eating again at 13pm. Lunch is going to be extra healthy, so is dinner & no sugar…

I am going to go for a longer walk today. I am going to borrow my little grand daughter & take her for a walk in her push chair. She is one of the reasons I am improving myself. As in my health. I am going to be a active part of her life…

Hmmm! That diet mentality! I am tempted to start counting calories, or carb’s, or fat, but…If I eat calories, fair enough, I would count 2000-calories, I know eating less calories would be effecting my leptin levels & in the long term my fat burning efficiency…

If I count carbs. I would lose lots of weight ‘Water’…but regain said water more or less straight away…Low carb is great for dieting, because no hunger pangs, no food cravings, I forget to eat & have to think about eating. It does make me feel better. My eye sight improves, my skin improves, my hair improves, my nails improve…

If I count fat. I have to go quite low to make a difference. Fat free foods, quorn, etc, is not good for you. Modified soy products, fat free dairy & margarine are in the ‘Foods to avoid, if you want to lose weight’ list…Low fat is great for dropping inches…

Maybe I should go back to following the slimming world ‘extra easy’ plan…I should buy the magazine & read it cover to cover, read the success stories, watch the slimming world video’s on you tube. Motivate myself. Inspire myself. Focus on my goals. I am determined to lose all my excess fat & become slim, healthy me…

Today is a fresh day. It is not a roll on from the mediocre ‘Leptin boosting’ ‘metabolism boosting’ ‘cheat day’…or whatever us dieters like to call it…Ummm! lol…I was not dropping my calories, fat or carbs to a semi starvation state, so no need for the boost in anything…

What have I learned…

  1. One bad day, does not have to make a bad week…
  2. Ginger beer is not as scrummy as I used to think it was, now I am eating a lot less sugar…
  3. I don’t need to keep starting over, I just took a detour on my weight loss journey…
  4. Today is a fresh new day…
  5. There is no ‘Bad!’ day. No ‘failure’. No I am useless. No I knew I would fail. No self loathing. It is a minor, minute, tinsy detour, nothing to get all dramatic about, get over it, move on, learn from the one minor slip, where I ate ‘Gasp!’ pastry & ‘OMFG!’ CAKE!…Don’t blow it all out of proportion. Carry on healthy eating & learning how to maintain my inevitable weight loss for life…
  6. On my life style ‘Eating for life’…I will eat the occasional cake & have pie for dinner. Jeeze! Woman! its not that bad…Drama queen! Diet diva!

I feel better now…

Nuff said for now…

Motivation – Inspirational Before & After Photo’s…

I’m waiting for 13pm when I can have my lunch. Or should I say…I am waiting for 13pm when I have my lunch, because of course I could eat now, but I choose to intermittent fast 14:10…

I am just listening to weight loss self hypnosis. I listen whilst blogging. It might not be the way to use self hypnosis, but I find listening & typing quite helpful…Even if I stop listening, I’m sure the suggestions are going into my mind…

It is a good way to focus as well…

I am keeping myself motivated looking at ‘Before & After” photo’s. If they can do it, it is possible, I can do it too. I have done it before, so I have already proved to myself that I can lose weight. Now I am changing my life style, so I maintain my ideal weight/size…

It is coming up to day three. In the past I have found day three quite challenging, for whatever reason. I have been on many diets where I have got past day three; past week three; month three even. I suppose some might say that is yo-yo dieting. Well NO MORE! yo-yo dieting. This diet is for life. This diet is a lifestyle change…

I am investing in my future. A healthy, active future, where I feel energetic, confident, motivated, attractive…

Apparently goal setting is the way to go. I already knew this, but I don’t always use what I know to be effective. I forget…If that even makes sense. Another negative towards my dieting attempts; that feeling of ‘why did I waste so much time’…Obviously that was not my time. This is my time. This time next year I will be my ideal weight/size…

Time flies by. When I look back, I will see amazing results instead of wasted time being fat. 6 weeks literally zooms by. In 6 weeks time I will be at least 1.5 stone slimmer…The power of my own mind. I will lose at least 1.5st in 6 weeks. If I tell myself ‘I probably won’t, I’ll probably fail, then I will have set myself up to fail’…Well I have no intention of giving up on achieving my goals…

This Wednesday 17th May 2017. I will reach my goal to be in the 14st’s…

Nuff said for now…Lunch time…

Posted in Motivation., Paul Mckenna I Can Make You Thin., Self hypnosis, Weight loss journey

My personal ‘slimming world’ plan of action. My weight loss journey starts on Wednesday May 10th…

be06638004f8c9ba016d9ff552226048OMFG! I was just looking at other self hypnosis for weight loss, I came across hypnosis to obey. Nope! Not into obeying some stranger on the internet, who could screw my mind, but then if that is what rocks your boat, so be it…Ummm!

Personally I am into the power of my own mind, not obeying some complete stranger, who knows feck all about me. I am going to listen to my own body, make healthy choices, be more active, feel more motivated…

I believe the words we use/write, have an impact on us. If I write ‘I will try to lose weight, but I’ll probably fail, like all the other times’ I will likely fail, just because I set myself up to fail from the start. I am not going to fail. Failing is not an option, my life depends on it. I have no other choice then to change my eating habits…

Its like the emotional eating. If I tell myself that I can’t lose weight, because I am an emotional eater, well I’m likely to use that as an excuse. Yes it is real, but so is my powerful mind. I’m bored ‘Not hungry’…Its a habit. I don’t desperately need to eat biscuits with my coffee or tea. I do it out of habit. I literally open the cupboard & the fridge every time I go into the kitchen…

Though I have now emptied the sweet junk cupboard. The sweet junk is upstairs in the kids bedrooms. They have their stash. Which they hardly eat. Because they was brought up allowed to eat sweet junk food, so its not a big thing to them. Deprivation seems to have the effect of making you want something more…No chocolate, I MUST! have chocolate. I crave chocolate. I’m obsessed ‘Ugh!’…Actually if I want chocolate, I can have chocolate, but in moderation {Syn counted, from my syn allowance}

Deep down I am holding on to being able to eat exactly what I want, when I want it…but…I make the wrong food choices. I can eat when I am hungry. I can eat what I want to eat, but consciously, no mindless eating. I want to feed my body healthy nutrious food, so I reap the benefits of being a healthy, attractive, happy in my own body, confident I look good, motivated, energetic, wife, mum, nana, me, myself…

I am holding onto this ‘can’t be arsed’ attitude. When in reality, I have got all the capabilities, to succeed. I already cook slimming world type meals. I just crave sugar…but…I can control the amount of sugar I allow in my body. It is easy…

I’m on a diet I WANT! something sweet…Ummmm! Why? Habit? Boredom? Addiction?…Its easy? I associate giving up sugar as deprivation? When in reality I can find healthy ways to satisfy my sweet tooth. My so called sweet tooth. Like smoothies. Like melted chocolate dipped fruit. More filling nutrious fruit, less chocolate, but still chocolate…

I need cocktail sticks, various fruits & melted chocolate. How much melted chocolate to cover a bowl of fruit? Surely not that much. I wonder if I melted a fredo bar…Its like my favourite drink is ginger beer. I love ginger beer. Sugar free, is ‘Ugh!’…It is 61-calories per 100mls. A 330ml can is around 200-calories. Which is roughly 10 syn’s, based on 1 syn per 20-calories…

Part of me is tempted to follow the weight watchers smart points, but that felt restrictive to me. I failed abysmally…Though there is the fitness/activity points, which you can earn, 1 fitness point {Whatever} per 15 minutes of brisk activity…So a 30 minute brisk walk, would earn 2 fitness points…

I like the idea of earning syn’s…As this is my version of the diet & my diet for ever. I am going to have activity syn’s. Though 20-calories per 1 syn. It seems low to burn 20 calories, then count it as one activity syn…Hmmm? Then again. If a ripple is around 180-calories & 9 syn’s. Burning 180-calories would burn enough calories for the ripple. 45 minutes of housework, would earn me 9 syn’s…

I could be extra good & earn all the syn’s I use…Or have 5 syn’s each day, then earn any extra through exercise. Mind you 27 syn’s for a bottle of red wine ‘Ugh!’ 540-calories to burn. I could earn all my syn’s. Or if I feel too tired, use my daily 15 syn’s {No flexible}

Or…Earn my syn’s through exercise & have the extra A & B healthy choice on my extra easy plan. That is what I will do…If I go shopping each day, to get my day’s food. I would earn 10 syn’s…I found it easier to diet when I shopped daily…

Having the extra A choice would be better, so I could have tea & porridge {A healthy B choice}…I found just eating meat & veg boring & just eating potatoes, pasta, rice even more boring. This way of eating is a lifestyle change, not just a diet…

I don’t want to full into the diet mentality trap. By following the slimming world extra easy plan, with a few personal tweaks, I am eating the same as I do already 70%-30%. 30% being the OTT! sweet junk. 70 % I eat meat, poultry, fish, veg, salad, eggs, pasta, rice, potatoes, fruit {Not as much as I should do} The sweet junk can now have a syn value…

Healthy food is nutrious food, healing my body, not boring diet food. I do actually like vegetables, salad, fruit, but I need some added taste, otherwise it can be too bland for me. I have got lots of herbs & spices to add extra taste. Garlic improves the taste a lot…

So My plan of action…Starting Wednesday 10th May. I will…

1] Follow the ‘Extra easy’ slimming world plan…

2] Earn my syn’s through exercise. 20-calories = 1 syn…

3] Have an extra A & B healthy choice, instead of syn’s. So 2x A & B healthy choices…

4] Use intermittent fasting 14:10 as a weight loss tool…

5] Listen to self hypnosis & follow the book ‘I can make you thin’ {My version}

6] Keep myself motivated everyday, through blogging, mirror’s everywhere, reality check photo’s, read the slimming world magazine & watch slimming world video’s on you tube…

7] Get my start weight & measurements, then weigh & measure myself weekly…

8] Shop daily…

9] Eat half veg- quarter protein- quarter carbs, portion control…Aim to fill up on super veg…

10] Eat 3 meals + 2 snacks per day, between 13pm & 23pm…

11] Stay focused on achieving small goals. Set myself lots of small goals…

12] Stay focused on being ‘persistent’ & patient, aiming for the long term, making changes to my lifestyle. Prepare myself to maintain my weight loss, improve my health & my fitness…

Wednesday is a red wine day. It is my friends birthday. So I will need to earn 27 syn’s {Burn 540-calories}…I am counting Walking as 7-calories per minute. Housework as 4-calories per minute. Gardening as 6-calories per minute {weeding digging} 4-calories per minute {sowing, watering, deadheading, planting} Jogging on my mini trampoline 7-calories per minute. Exercises with my resistance bands 6-calories per minute – with out resistance 5-calories per minute…

Nuff said for now. I need to get ready for my friend, more red wine, more catching up…
