Just a little 3.25km run tonight after work...taking it really easy before Sundays race. I'm getting antsy and excited to run the #STWM 5k.
Does anyone else wish there was also a 10k option?? 🤔
What I am looking forward to most of all is to cheer all my friends to their finish. You have all been so motivating and encouraging! I have enjoyed and learned so much throughout your training processes. Thank you 🙏 📣 🏃♀️🏃♂️💪
Let me know if you are running on Sunday too! 😁 -
So for awhile now I've been struggling with things I can't really put into words and then October arrived and this is always a shitty month for me so SW has kind of been none existent I'm either not eating or I'm binge eating crap depending on my mood and it needs to stop so I'm going to give it all I've got to get back on track this next week and back to writing/posting everything I eat
I've found a new love for the circuit board lately (it's love-hate, let's be honest...). Being a member of a bouldering gym but needing to train for routes is a fine balance involving the circuit board and a lot of linkups. 🧗 My finger feels better today, which is good. Enjoying the rest while it lasts.
Still struggling with Down syndrome or Trisomy 21? Here’s a quick and easy guide.
John Langdon Down is the British chap 🇬🇧 (English physician to be exact...) who first put pen to paper when describing the condition in 1866 (!!!). Don’t know what took them so long, I mean, for goodness’s sake, we’ve been around for as long as you have for all we know! Anyway, can I just say, we really wish the guy had a more upbeat surname cause that one sure hasn’t helped much with the stigma over the years...🤣🤣
And that is how the most recognisable cognitive disability in the world got its name, with all sorts of theories behind it, one more crazy than the other!! Nothing much happened for about 100 years. And then... With the discovery of KARYOTYPE (basically, an up-close-and-personal picture of your chromosomes 📸), a French guy 🇫🇷, Jérôme Lejeune (a paediatrician and geneticist) linked the description of DS to the presence of an extra chromosome 21, in 1959. And as he was too late to claim the syndrome name, it just got called what causes it! That is how the term Trisomy 21 (= 3 copies of chromosomes 21) was born.
Some countries prefer to use DS, some others Trisomy 21.
Are you asleep yet? 😴😴😜
I still have loads to post over the next few days but feel free to also ask me questions. Maybe there are things I haven’t thought of yet! 🙏❤️
All this for just 0.5 syns 👌
@slimmingworld Vegetable Biriyani from @icelandfoods with extra peppers, 5% mince beef and an @oxo beef stock cube.
@asda quark mixed with @canderel_uk liquid sweetener topped with chopped nectarines and 1tbsp of @sukrinusa brown sugar alternative (0.5 syns)
I even get 2 hi-fi bars for my Healthy extra B choice too!
Two pictures taken almost a year apart: on the left, a girl consumed by anxiety, fighting the negative thoughts with a smile on her face, hoping that with persistence it will eventually get easier; on the right, a girl about to cover a class in a flagship gym, confident, relaxed and optimistic about what opportunities lie ahead.
They may look similar but beneath the surface a transformation has taken place. One hopes, the other believes.
Never give up on yourself 💕
