BF wants us to try a no sugar added diet. Sounds challenging & no fun!
Lots of non sugar carbs convert to sugar very quickly. Also fruit often has natural sugars in but that is offset by the fibre and anti oxidant benefits. Don't stop the fruit. Less sugar is good. No sugar at all is not necessary and probably unhealthy
Just be sensible, and always keep the fun. It's possible to diet and have fun food in moderation.
Enjoy your holiday too!
Thanks, John! I just bought a huge bag of gummy bears the other day so I'm clearly not ready. 😂 Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
You insane person, you.
Well done, John! That's awesome!
Thank you Pandas. I was proud but I don't think my body was.
You went mushrooming :D ?
📕 :D With help from friends, I found a book that I've spent 7 or 8 years trying to remember the title of.
Cat! Hi Clem:)
Heart. I'm soppy these days :)
You took my heart Alicia. I'm sure you'll look after it better than I would! :)))
💜 let's make an exchange :)
The only thing that will pull me out of this mood is time. Or circumstances out of my control. It will happen. I might even have a bad day tomorrow but I'll be able to keep the memory that feeling good is closer than I think.
Sounds beautiful, i'm happy for you :)
My video project is corrupt and keeps crashing after about three quarters rendering done. Going to start from scratch.
Congrats on the long run!
Glad to hear you had a great run. It's cathartic
Are you making a meowlbum?
Thats a good productive day. Do you produce music or do you sing etc?
Produce. I got someone else to meow into a microphone (then I pitched them up) yesterday morning.
😀 a meowlbum
The meowlbum got me too haha.
And i bet it sounds good
I'll post it if I can get the video to render
Looking unlikely. Might have to just upload the audio
I wish my cat would meow. The only noise she makes is hiss. But more than that I can't wait to hear your recording
Still am going to make a video for it... but that'll have to wait... Here's the audio. Put in £0 and try and listen to it all (sorry it's almost 9 minutes!) https://johntownshend.bandcamp.com/track/kitten-in-space
Just spotted any error. Will update in 5 minutes...
Well done! I've just listened to it
Not because of anything I've done (recently), I just feel like I could make some significant impactful decisions at any time. Trying my best to be considered and not reactionary. Looking for the line so I don't cross it.
Mood is ok. If fluctuating a bit more than normal throughout the day. Worrying about things that don't matter. Feeling dramatic. Pretentious. I need to relax.
I want to feel like a Bob Marley song but I more like an obscure 17th century poet... in a massive Jacobian Ruff.
Although I'm sure 'everything's gonna be alright' because I've just taken my tablets.
Wow John, I couldn't have described my current mood better! 😂 I really identify with the 17th century poet bit, especially because ive been reading 17th century poetry as part of my summer bucket list (quite a coincidence!) I've been in a pickle
With being reactionary and feeling irresponsible. Which go hand in hand quite grossly in the form of panicked scrambles to 'get on the ball' or 'pull my life together'. Feelings of pretentiousness always spring out of this somehow?!? Strange, huh? 😂
And just yesterday my mom reminded me that days of rapid mood fluctuations can be a side effect of my medication. I'm still surprised but also not surprised that I forgot. Anyways, sucks to be in this rut but cool, I guess, we're in the same one 😅
This post should so go on your website! But don't you worry about a thing. 'Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.
John, I'm loving the Marley and 17th century poetry vibe - two of my favourite things, though only you would have the creativity to bring them together and share with all of us on MP xx
saw that u have a sentient submarine that gives u good dreams maybe I'll try to imagine my own 'subby'
Hahaha it's my pet name for my sub-conscious 😊
It is 28C/82.4F on my end of Canada today! I could not imagine the heat over there right now, yikes!
It's the hottest day of the year so far here in NY... And nowhere near as crazy hot as Europe right now...
Soooo hot in Indiana right now. Can't wait to get to the beach!
