    V, we’re just popping out to Turkiye for a couple of weeks, to start our next visa ticking. We’ll be going back in April as usual. Where are you off to … will this be your Singapore trip?

    So let’s see, it’s positives time and I know there must be some ….
    ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿงถ now the festive distraction is done with, I’ve started knitting myself a snood
    ๐Ÿ“ฆ๐Ÿ“ฆ visit to the Post office to send back a few unwanted purchases
    ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’ treated myself to a bunch of roses, to help chase away the January blues

    Hope there have been some positives in your day too.

    Sunny didnโ€™t realise you need a visa for Tรผrkiye. Enjoy your trip anyway.
    We were trying to get a visa for Cambodia, just one stop on a cruise, but it meant sending off passports to the Embassy in London. Our postal service is abysmal, and it was almost Christmas. I had visions if needing an emergency passport! So decided against that and will let the ship do it even though itโ€™s much more expensive.
    Sanity comes before cost sometimes!

    So I only have one huge positive โ€ฆ..

    โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿป๐ŸŒˆ Just three days back into my new regime and also into my โ€˜headspaceโ€™ and Iโ€™m feeling so very much more at โ€˜peaceโ€™.
    Last year, no, 2022, I took an annual subscription but really didnโ€™t use it very much. I had an offer back in November, Black Friday offer, and I thought why not, even though Iโ€™d hardly used it.
    Iโ€™m so pleased I renewed. Itโ€™s renewing me!

    Hope today has had some positives for everyone else.

    Turkiye’s visa system is the same as the one that now applied for Brits visiting the EU …. 90 days in any 180 days. The visa starts ticking on the first day of entry, which is why we’re visiting in Feb, so we can visit earlier at the end of the year.

    Cambodia sounds like an exciting destination. Will look forward to hearing your impressions on your return.

    So, my positives for today are ….
    ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™‚ have started moving around more, with a couple of short exercise sessions per day.
    ๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿ›ต our car and youngest GS’s scooter both passed their MOT’s today
    ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‚ put away the last of my Christmas gifts today, so everything now has a home.
    ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’… reviewed and disposed of some old cosmetics and skincare …. fresh start for the new year.

    What were the positives in your day?

    Sorry to interfer but Verano, do you know you can get a temporary visa on board the cruise ship. You still have to have all the usual documents but they do it there and then on the ship. Although I have just read that it is still your responsibility to make all the checks so you are probably doing the right thing. If you have already sent off for one then I hope it all goes well.

    I guess I had better add some positives after that slightly negative comment.
    Has a very uncomfortable but very successful mammogram yesterday
    Going for a pedicure this afternoon
    Doing well on the new stricter regime.

    Sunny I see! I hadnโ€™t realised Tรผrkiye had the same EU rule. My own gut feeling is that that rule is in its last days. Spain, the Canaries and Balearics are all up in arms asking for it to be scrapped and even France for holiday home owners. These countries, especially those reliant upon the โ€˜sparrowsโ€™ must be losing so much money. Anyway, we will see.

    S-g no not interfering at all. Yes, weโ€™ve decided to let the ship do it. I spoke to the travel agent and she spoke to the cruise company who say we donโ€™t need photos or paperwork. Think Iโ€™ll take photos anyway and can always download the forms if necessary. Definitely not stressing over it now stressed enough back in November/December! Last time we were due to go to Cambodia the ship couldnโ€™t dock so didnโ€™t need the visa after all. We will wait and see!

    Positives โ€ฆ. today hadnโ€™t been very positive. Iโ€™ve managed not to eat anything on my โ€˜naughtyโ€™ list which is good but have also failed to add in all the good stuff like water and meditation. Tomorrow is another day and all will be well!
    Have a good evening.

    Turkiye has been using this visa arrangement for several years now, V. They used to charge a fee for their tourist visa, but that was dropped a few years ago.
    Sorry your day was a bit flat, V, but as you say, tomorrow is another day …. a blank canvas for you to put a mark upon.

    Positives from my little corner today …..
    ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ™‚ GS visited to help me put Christmas “back in the box”(es) and then stayed for dinner. Lovely to spend time with him.
    ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ made myself a batch of herby almond crackers …. yummy!
    I’m thinking that will do for me today. It felt like a day well spent though, so I’m ending my day content.

    Good afternoon.

    Iโ€™m determined to find a positive everyday. Really shouldnโ€™t be too difficult โ€ฆ..

    ๐Ÿฅข๐Ÿซš๐Ÿง„ Chinese stir fry tonight with lots of vegetables and left over chicken

    ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿ’… Very nice pedicure today (sorry about the pics!) and that leads me to my last for todayโ€ฆ.

    ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ“บ โ€ฆ. whilst I sat waiting for my toes to dry I caught up with C4 Truelove, first 2 episodes. Try and watch it, it really is good. Apparently there are six episodes in all. Really looking forward to number 3.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend. It may be cold but at least itโ€™s sunny with, hopefully, no more rain!!!

    Have been wondering about the series Truelove, think I might give it a go as you have recommended it Verano.

    Positives in my little corner ….
    ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฝ enjoyed our date night last evening.
    ๐Ÿ™‚โญ tidied ‘that’ cupboard in the kitchen today… you know the one, full of clutter and most of it largely unused and/or unnecessary. Good session of disposing of stuff, including putting quite a few things aside for the charity shop.
    ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน the three rose bushes I ordered a couple of months ago, arrived today …. yippee!!! Now I just need to find homes for them ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Hope you are all enjoying a positive weekend.

    Hi SunnyB, I too am recording Truelove. If you have playback then The Couple Next Door was good and a bit cheeky but develops into a good thriller.

    My positives

    Feeling better in myself and hoping the yoga is helping with stamina
    Losing weight at a good rate
    Excited about all the new knowledge I am finding with the help of friends here. Dr Bikman, Jason Fung, Insulin IQ to name a few.

    I started The Couple Next Door but was a bit cheeky so gave up . Should I go back to finish it?

    Well itโ€™s been sunny but frosty and cold here today but my first positive is โ€ฆ.. itโ€™s not raining!
    Very quiet day today which is good and also positive.
    Have spent a good part of the weekend reading which has been quite thought provokingโ€ฆ.. in a positive way.

    Positives here for today are ….

    ๐ŸŒน ordered containers for my new rose bushes … should be here in a few days

    Hello.

    Well I just have one negative that Iโ€™ve turned into a positive today.

    Last week at the start of the year I replaced my journal, which was full after 4 years, with a week to view diary โ€ฆ.. after just one week I โ€˜hateโ€™ it!
    So this morning I took the new journal that I bought 5 years ago, but have never used, and have pressed it into service as my โ€˜new journalโ€™. I feel so much more at ease being able to see my progress on one page. Guess itโ€™s the old adage โ€ฆ. if it ainโ€™t broke donโ€™t fix it!

    Hope Monday has been a goid start to everybodyโ€™s new week.

  • posted by SunnyB

    permalink

    As you say, V, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’m using the Fung journal as I was looking for something different to help keep me motivated. I used to keep a spreadsheet which calculated cals and carbs, and I tracked weight, measurements and BMI. However, as I’d stopped weighing and measuring everything consumed, having an alternative to the spreadsheet seemed to make sense.

    Anyway ….. positives for today are …
    โ„๐ŸŒจ the snow which was falling when we went to bed last night, wasn’t in evidence when we got up this morning
    ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿงถ finished the snood I’ve been knitting
    ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’ฌ lovely phone catch up with a long term friend last evening, with plans to meet up in the summer

    Again, it’s been a quiet day with nothing spectacular happening, but a good day for all that๐Ÿ™‚.

    Hope your day has been a good one too … would love to read your positives if you have a moment to post them.

    ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒน good gardening session with GS …. three roses planted and one very large and old lavender despatched

    Hello!

    Just one positive for me todayโ€ฆ. counting down to our trip and ordered some small ziplock bags which came today. The bags are brilliant for small numbers of vitamins etc. They hold 30 quite happily so thatโ€™s one thing ticked of the list!

    While Iโ€™m here just want to say that I have gone back to my meditation app and after 12 days Iโ€™m really starting to feel the benefit. Canโ€™t believe how much more relaxed I am. Whether itโ€™s a placebo or not it doesnโ€™t really matter โ€ฆ. itโ€™s working for me!

    Hope you have some positives too โ€ฆ. one will do!

    Verano, I am sure meditation changes something in the brain in quite a few ways. Calms you down, helps memory and some neurons that have become separate as we age can re-join giving us more working brain cells.

    Had a bad day yesterday BUT
    1. Car broke down but at least it was within 100 metres of a garage and we just cruised in.
    2. Going to cost โ‚ฌ2000 but at least we have the money unlike so many people who are struggling and something like this would have knocked them for 6.
    3. Luckily I have no medical appointments and no social events so no need of a car for a few days at least.

    Always look for rainbow rather than moaning about the rain – I just made that up.

    V, sounds like you’re really getting into the holiday prep now. Glad your meditation is proving beneficial. I’ve allowed mine to laps too, so something I should be looking to get back to as well.
    SG, well done on finding the positives in what was a less than ideal situation with your car problems. Liking your rainbow analogy!
    My positives for today are ….
    ๐ŸŽ gift posted yesterday by a friend, arrived with me today … well done post office!
    โ˜€๏ธ a bright sunny day, even though it was very cold

    Another uneventful day, that said there must be some positives, so here goes ….
    ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ brought a hellebore bloom indoors, so that I can fully appreciate its beauty …. their natural habit is with the flower head hanging down, so it’s hard to see how lovely they are.
    ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚ made plans to meet up with friends we haven’t seen for awhile …. getting together in the summer, date is in the diary.
    ๐Ÿ“ž๐Ÿ“ž nice long phone chat with Mum, caught up on all the parental news.

    Happy New Year everyone and I hope you had a lovely birthday SUNNY!
    VERANO,thanks for reminding me about Truelove! I saw ep 1,need to go back and catch up with the next few episodes. Great cast isnt it!
    Did you enjoy the snow that fell Monday night? I was awake and loved watching it fall so silently. Looked so perfect,a carpet of white stretching out untouched. By 5 a.m. there was just one set of pawmarks. Later covered in car tracks and footprints. It was a nice interlude but I dont want a return visit๐Ÿ˜„ i was surprised no children came out to have snowball fights and make snowmen. We would stay out for hours as kids and go home with freezing hands that hurt so much when they thawed out by the fire!
    I listened to Couple Next Door on audio last year but cant remember it very well,so cant advise,V.
    Only one pozz from me..I am in a lovely hibernatey mood..escaping from Jan gloom with a pile of books received for birthday and Xmas. Im content to stay cosy and wait for spring,have a few naughty hot chocolatesin the meantime! The way time goes so fast,it will be here very soon.
    Keep warm and well wrapped up,N Hemisphere peeps!..brrr,its cold and frosty out there! Enjoy the sun,our S Hemisphere friends,and think of us shivering! xx

    Yowser, good to see you posting and sharing a little of what’s happening with you.
    V, thought I’d let you know P++i throat cream is on offer on QVC as a mega size jar at the moment (ยฃ0.00 p&p). I’ve placed an order so I have some in stock.

    Positives for me today, are ….
    ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‚ after an exhaustive search, I finally found the skincare I bought last month and put ‘somewhere safe’!!! Just in time, as I was about to run out of both serum and daytime moisturiser.
    ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿฅฃ did all the prep I could for tomorrow’s date night dinner. Should be a nice easy one to finish off now.
    Just the two for today I think …. enjoy your evening everyone.

    YOWSER. โ€ฆ.. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Pile of books sounds great. Iโ€™ve gone back to reading โ€˜real thingโ€™ now, love the feel of turning pages!

    Thanks Sunny but I have one huge pot! So not buying anymore at the moment.

    So to me โ€ฆ absolutely no positives.

    Trip that took many, many weeks to plan is now off. OH just not up to 7 flights etc. etc. so had to cancel.

    So, another story. Sure I will find positives, just not today!

    Hope the coming week is great for everyone.

    Right at this moment just very disappointed. So really canโ€™t find even one positive apart from the fact that Iโ€™m still here and able to deal with the issue!

    Oh, V … how dreadfully disappointing. I know you were very much looking forward to your vacation, so to have to cancel must really hurt. Can imagine in the wake of that, finding a positive is a huge ask. Hopefully in the days ahead, it will be easier to find those positives again.

    While I’m here, will report a couple of positives …
    ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป as a day patient, Dad had a successful minor surgical procedure yesterday.
    ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜€ plans for celebrating eldest GD’s 18th next month are now in place.

    Hi there, V sorry to hear about your trip. My husband refuses to fly any distance even though he was an aircraft engineer – should that be because he was an aircraft engineer and didn’t trust commercial flights. Also, we had to cancel our Norway/Iceland cruise last year due to my surgery so I know how disappointed you are. Maybe you could look at something closer to home. You could come and housesit for us in April/May when we go away ๐Ÿ™‚

    My positives are not very exciting.
    Just glad to be free of medical appointments for another 2 weeks when I go get my eyes tested.
    Glad we can keep snug and warm in the cold weather – we have an electric blanket for night-time.

    So to some positives now I am feeling ok โ€ฆ.

    Verano, glad you are recovery from the disappointment of your trip cancellation and are starting to look forward to your springtime vacation. My meditation has lapsed, so your posting about yours, has given me a nudge to get back to mine.
    SG, good news that your breathlessness seems to have resolved and that you have been able to reduce your insulin. Also good news your hubby’s check up went well.

    Okay, my positives for today ….
    ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚ accidentally left my building society book in the post office and the assistant kindly phoned me to let me know, so I could return to collect it.
    ๐Ÿ“ฎ๐ŸŽ‰ posted off eldest DD’s birthday gift … her birthday isn’t until beginning of Feb, but wanted to get it sorted in good time.

    Sunny I had forgotten just how beneficial meditation is. Yesterday I had a really unexpected reaction and was actually quite tearful. I have no idea why but it felt like quite a โ€˜reliefโ€™. You must get back to it if you have the time.

    Just one positive for me today. I realise that my head is back into the same place it was when I first started BSD. So I have a very modest, doable, goal of 1lb a week with any extra being a bonus. Iโ€™m finding the lack of stress from a long term goal and a timespan is really helping me to stay focused.

    Hope positives are flowing your way.

    managed to get shopping done as there were no sign of the rioting farmers
    because we were late I gave hubby the opportunity to have lunch out – local supermarket restaurant or the new Burger King – he opted to come back home and I had soup. A positive as I really didn’t want to eat out although I had looked at the menu at BK and planned having 2 plain salads ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ made some tasty salmon for dinner, with a miso and herb butter
    ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™‚ OH finished work today until after we get back for our trip
    Has been a pleasant day … Hope yours has been likewise.

    Quick hello to wish you Happy Hols! Sunny. Have a great time.
    Itโ€™s been lovely and sunny here today. Saw my first daffodils and some lovely crocus. Feels like spring could be on its way!
    Keep positive everyone and pop in as and when to share.

    Thank you for the good wishes, V. We’ve been away overnight for a friend’s 50th birthday and off on our travels on Monday …. so, a few positives from yesterday…
    ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚ our friend commented on my weight loss and asked if I was okay …. double positive, my change in weight is noticeable and he was concerned as to why I looked slimmer than last time we saw each other 18mths ago.
    ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘  the shoes I wore to the party, fell apart in the rain on the walk back to the hotel!!!! OH managed to put them back together this afternoon.
    ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฅช despite all the buffet food at the party being carby, I managed to consume an absolute minimum (a quarter of a sandwich, a third of a wrap and two pieces of sushi) and no sugary elements.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

    Weight is still going down
    Hair appt on Tuesday
    Lovely lazy Sunday afternoon doing a bit of painting and watching something on Netflix – but running out of ideas.
