I’m eating DELICIOUS wheat free Tortilla chips as I write this, omg they are gorgeous, and I’m sooo hungry too, so I just can’t stop! lol. Eating healthier is going really well though, this is one of the only “naughty” things I’ve had lately, apart from some chocolate yesterday. I’ve been eating lots of fruit! Lidl has a great selection so I’m having fruit salads every day.

Last night, I dreamt I was in Florida hanging with the TDC peeps. It was SUCH A GREAT DREAM! Even though not real, it left me with such a great feeling all day.

Today, I went shopping with my Mum and bought some curtains for my bfs place. I just need to get a pole and then we can hang them this weekend! The final touches will really make it into a home for us. Can’t wait! I also ordered a bathroom cupboard for the bleach and stuff, so we don’t have to have it out on display.

I got a lovely new scarf that’s teal coloured and has sparkles in it! It’s also bouncy! I can’t explain it, it’s the material and the way it’s woven together- tug on it and it bounces. Springy I guess would be a better way to say it. hehee.

I also got fleece headbands for when out walking, as it’s that time of year when it’s not really cold enough for a hat, but it’s cold on my ears and that hurts- I was thinking I needed something but wasn’t sure what and I happened to see these in a sports shop, so that’s great! It was buy one get one free so I got a dark pink and a purple. Actually they were the only colours available as I don’t have much pink, I tend to not like it on me- but it’s okay for a headband and actually the colour suits my haircolour.

This evening, I went to meet friends at the cinema. I am so chuffed with myself because I went on the motorway! I’ve been driving for 4 years now and have never been on the motorway because big lorries scare me, but the funny thing is since being on ivabradine I just have more confidence in general. I wonder if part of having tachycardia means that you get more anxiety as a result, because your body has more like stress running through it, so you worry/get scared more easily? Because I still don’t like lorries but I didn’t feel half as scared as before- before I wouldn’t even have done it- especially not as it was dark too! But I loved it! I even overtook a lorry! 🙂 WOO HOOOO! I drove on the motorway there AND coming back- despite being a bit tired after the film. It’s like I feel like I WANT to challenge myself now instead of making excuses and reasons not to face my fears. It felt great!

It was nice to see my friends too and the film was funny. Oh what was so funny was when we went in, I was first in the queue out of me and my friends and when it was my turn to be served and buy the tickets- the name of the film had gone out of my mind! So I asked my friend and she couldn’t remember either! I was acting really potsy but the funny thing was so was she! In the end I was the one who remembered, though it was triggered by her mentioning part of the title but getting it slightly wrong. Then when we went into the cinema we turned the wrong way and were confronted by this locked staff only door and looked all confused at it. It was really funny coz it’s usually me being like that and feeling pretty silly as everyone else is with it but we were all as bad as each other tonight!

So yeah, it was a good day today. I’m off out tomorrow for tea with another friend too so that will be nice. Things are good right now and I’m enjoying it! 🙂

Weird dream…

I am getting signs from the universe to improve my diet. (I’m a big believer in ‘signs’). First of all, I ate cheesecake at the wedding and ended up with pain and nausea for 3 days afterwards. My tummy still doesn’t feel “back to normal”- every time I eat something, it feels like it’s having a hard time digesting it.

So, I thought to myself, really- it’s not worth it. So I was already thinking of improving my diet. I also added in almonds for a snack as I read somewhere that they have a lot of minerals in them that’s good for potsies, and I started eating sardines.

Then, my bf started talking to me about a book he’s read called ‘fit for life’. All about eating healthy. He wants me to borrow it after he’s read it again. One of the things it recommends is not letting anything except fruit past your lips before 12 noon. So I’m going to try that. My bf was sweet too as he said ‘that should help you with your dehydration as you’ll also be getting water from the fruit.’ 🙂

Then, at the end of my second reflexology course day yesterday, I got my next assignment- which is to research the history of healthy diets and to write about some of the diets that are popular right now- any that interest you.

So, I believe those are all ‘signs’ to lead me in the right direction.

Another thing, I had a strange dream last night that I was sitting at a table with lots of people who were eating KFC in front of me. They were all gnawing on these chicken drumsticks and saying how delicious they were and my response was “You know what, I don’t care- I know it’s not good for me.” I also dreamt I was eating walnuts, and very strangely this morning my Mum read something out to me from the paper “Eating walnuts can help to reduce stress.” Now, I don’t even LIKE walnuts but I believe it is another sign and so I’m going to get some.

I truly believe that your body will let you know what it needs, in cravings or dreams. And that if you’re to hear an important message, you’ll keep stumbling across it in various ways- e.g. newspaper articles, overheard snippets of conversation, things on the radio, things people post or write on facebook… etc. So as lately I keep seeing/reading/hearing messages about healthy eating, AND also dreaming about foods I wouldn’t consciously choose to eat like walnuts, I believe I need to start taking more care about what I put into my body. So I’m starting today and I just ate a delicious red, crunchy English apple for breakfast. 🙂
