State of play
I really should make the time to write a blog entry every now and again.
TBH the time just seems to evaporate, the last entry I made here was May 21st.
The problem is my health, at the moment it’s up and down like a whore’s underwear, I have good days and I have bad days. On the good days I tend to fill them up with doing lots of other things and forgetting all about my blog :/
A quick diet update
Firstly my diet, well that’s gone right out of the window, for the last few months I have been on high dose steroids to control the splenic pain, every time the Dr’s try to ween me off of them the pain comes back, I am about due to try a ween again this month, hopefully more successful than other times when I have tried it.
The downside is that steroids give me a massive appetite and cause me to eat like a horse. In Sept 2021 I was 125 Kg and made a determined effort to lose weight which I did by dieting and I got down to almost 80Kg and I just weighed myself and I am up to 94Kg
I need to come off these steroids and get back to losing wright again, 94Kg is way too heavy.
One thing that will help is that finally after a nearly 6 month break I have been able to go back swimming again, I restarted that this week so that is the first step to losing some of this excess weight.
I have an appointment with my haematologist this week so hopefully we will start to wean me off steroids from that appointment.
Going out, out.
I have had my 5th Covid vaccination which is 3 primary vaccinations and 2 booster vaccinations combined with the current dominant strain of Covid being a less virulent one than what we had in 2020 I have once again started to venture out, with care I might add.
These trips out including going to a local pub once a week as well as venturing further afield like going into central London to make 360 and Tour videos.
So that’s my plan for this blog, to go back to some of the videos I made a few moths back and start blogging about them and including them in posts here and then hopefully in a few weeks both my YouTube and this blog will be in sync so I can blog about a video as I upload it.
