My mood has been quite low for the last couple of days. I’ve pootled about a bit in the house, but my legs have been aching constantly. I think it might be the heat.
For Day 28 I managed to go for a 500m walk. But neither I, nor my legs got any pleasure from it. Which is a shame, because it was a lovely night. And wandering around in Mumbles is never unpleasant.
And for Day 29 I pushed myself to do 15 minutes on my recumbent bike (at a resistance level of 6) -but again, it was tough mentally to pedal for that long. A rather lacklustre performance.
Juneathon has been incredibly good for me. I really don’t think that I’d have done those two bits of exercise over the last couple of days had it not been for Juneathon. And anything which keeps me moving my body is great both mentally and physically.
Lacklustre days: 1 x 500m walk, 15mins x recumbent cycling
Total steps taken: 5,270
Difficulty level: intermediate.
You may now be wondering why I have a picture of a hairbrush at the top of this post. Or you may have forgotten about that entirely. It’s there because:
1. The brush has been something that made me smile over the past couple of days.
2. I like to have photos and I couldn’t think of anything else to post.
I have genetically high cholesterol (not diet related) and have been taking statins to combat that since my early 20s. Unfortunately it was the statins that caused my muscles to fail last year. So, I’m no longer taking them. And it appears that the statins were also causing hair loss. Every time I brushed my hair there would be a clump left behind. My u-bend was constantly clogged. My Gran’s vacuum blew up because of the amount of hair I’d accidentally shed on her carpets.
And I’d got naff, thin, lacklustre hair!
And now, when I brush my hair only a couple of strands are left behind.
I keep looking at the brush in wonder.
And then I feel my hair to check if it’s really true (Sometimes I even launch into full-on hair commercial mode and wave it about). And yes, my hair is getting thick and lustrous again 😀
