I couldn’t work out why the Olympic cauldron needed to be moved. I love that it was relit by someone called Austin Playfoot.
Breakfast: 1 oz oats + 5 oz milk + water + salt.
Lunch: 2 boiled eggs.
Fruit: 5 apricots.
Drinks: Tea. Skinny cap. Small amount of fanta.
Dinner: courgettes, aubergine, onions, peppers, cabbage stir fry with fish gougons in batter + rice.
Exercise: 36 mins walk on Snelsmore.
Analysis: might get free-standing punch-bag. This might destress me as well as help me get fit.
Analysis 2: I had 3 drinking nights last week, so should pay £10 to the fine box. I’m trying to stay within budget this month, so instead will look up 25 reasons to drink less.
Oh dear – came across this site when researching the dangers of alcohol. I love the dying words of Lord Keynes: “I wish I’d drunk more champagne.”
Conclusion: This info from knowyourlimits should hold me back next time I want to drink too much:
Scientists think that the link between alcohol and breast cancer could be down to the effect alcohol has on our sex hormones. Drinking alcohol changes the levels of hormones that you have in your body, including the female sex hormone oestrogen. Oestrogen is essential for normal sexual development and the functioning of female reproductive organs. It also acts to help to maintain healthy bones and heart. But this hormone can also increase the risk of breast cancer and is known to stimulate the growth of many breast cancers.
Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women. As far as the risk of getting breast cancer is concerned, the more you drink the greater the risk. There are other risk factors, some of which we have no control over, but alcohol is one of the risk factors we can control.
Liver disease is sometimes referred to as a ‘silent killer’. It takes years to fully develop and there are usually no symptoms until you reach the advanced stages so people may have the disease without knowing until years down the line, when the damage is already done.
From now on if I drink more than two nights in a week, I’ll put £10 in the fine box. The advantage is that I’ll be able to afford more champagne! Quality not quantity.
