  • I don't think the average person is bothered in any way about this.   We buy cars for many reasons, cost, colour, performance or even cos your mates got one but I doubt many seriously consider the actual emissions apart from the fact the tax is chea…
  • Hubby's drinking originally revolved around depression - then it became a viscous circle where he drank because he was depressed then became depressed because he drank.  I'm sure it's all too familiar to most of you.    Re the wheatgrass Jonnie - …
  • Believe me EDI he is - has been for the last 30 yrs.  He's been through the stuff you spoke of earlier.  He tries not to drink at all but can't manage it for more than a few weeks and it always creeps back up.  He really has made this choice - he's …
  • Anyway, enough of that misery stuff - look what I've just treated myself to.  It's a real bargain even at £115  http://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/berghaus-womens-vapour-storm-jacket-21110744?id_colour=133
  • EDI, I know theres no way I can control his drinking but I can control what I will put up with.  He knows that I won't accept him being properly bolloxed every day - he would have to leave.  I can cope with a couple of pints after work but no more -…
  • Typical - I finally post on here after months of no posting and my posts disappear!  EDI, Jonnie and everyone else who's been to that dark place and come through it - you have my utmost respect.  It's never been a problem for me personally but I h…
  • Do it before you drink the juice Apps - only takes a minute then, the longer you leave it the harder it is to clean..........
  • Mac McCormack wrote (see) Unfortunately I binge on beer .... any ideas Lots of ideas but it depends on whether you want to keep beer bingeing or not. Cinders, google for more options but this place sells the whole lot from seeds to grown grass…
  • EDI - 42 miles is NOT a small ultra, it's massive and further than me or HT have run in one go!   It's not running or distance you need to focus on though it's your mind - getting your mind into the right frame to complete the distance however far i…
  • Lol, I can't remember how many marathons and ultras HT has done but it's not in single figures.  Same for me too but HT has run more marathons than me in total.  Each Pilgrims Challenge counts for 2 marathons.  I'm more interested in trying to get f…
  • It's Beachy Cinders, you can have my place if you fancy it .   I've been too ill to do any running at all.  Bit peed off to say the least but hey ho, being sensible for once.   EDI, HT is a legend for smashing marathons and ultras with less than o…
  • Yes it does Cinders - green juices specifically.  Most of the vitamins and minerals needed for good health can be found in green leafy veg, celery and cucumber are good too.  The key is to have a good variety of the green stuff.  
  • Lol, mines normally terrible after about 5pm - earlier if I raid the biscuit tin or 'find' a belgium bun in Tescos.  My only saving grace is that I'm not much of a chocolate fan.  I hear all these women going on about needing chocolate and it just d…
  • I've sort of got it under control Jonnie, when I eat a high raw vegan diet I have few symptoms and lots of energy so I try to do that as much as I can.  If I stick to raw stuff in the day and something low fat vegan for dinner I'm ok.  Problem is it…
  • Lol Jonnie, corny jokes too   Crohns disease is an inflammatory bowel disease - a chronic condition and nothing like IBS.  Lots of different symptoms - all very unpleasant.  Most people lose weight but I'm one of the lunucky ones who stays lardy   T…
  • Glutton for punishment Cinders  That sounds like more training than I've ever done EDI  Apps, you should see Cinder's boy Buttons these days - all grown up and kicking ass with yet another Taekwondo belt!
  • I'm in a slightly different boat in that it was ( and still is a bit) my hubby with the drink problem.  I used to like having a drink normally but tended to binge when I did then now and then I'd find myself drinking just so I didn't have to listen …
  • Brilliant stuff Runner Jonnie, it is amazing what our old bods can do when we give them half a chance  
  • afternoon all.  I posted earlier but this stoopid laptop crashed just as i went to press submit  I've got a philips avance juicer EDI - very good and easy to clean.  What sort do you have.  I've had loads and the best value 'whole fruit' one I've …
  • Hahahaa Apps - Cinders has been posting about christm..... since July on fb    I still do loads of juicing and eating raw - I've been a bit poorly lately - got laid low with the crohns after a bit of stress and eating rubbish then seem to have cau…
  • Hello Apps, lovely to hear from you.  I see the very occasional post from you on fb but never hear from you otherwise   Fantastic going not drinking since July, wish I could say I stopped because of great willpower and fortitude but it was illness t…
  • Evening all.  not posted on here for ages and ages.  Just thought I'd pop in and say hi and then realised that it's 2 years today since I stopped smoking   It'll be 3 yrs next month with no drinking too  I'd like to think that being so angelic has m…
  • That's great.  Best of luck 
  • Hi Julie, well done on starting - the first step is always the hardest. There are lots of different beginner's plans to choose from.  On this site there are a some training plans to follow - click on the red 'Training'  tab at the top of the page …
  • Parkrun is an excellent idea Sinbad - you don't have to socialise with anyone if you don't want to.  Just go to the website, register and print off your personal barcode then turn up at any parkrun you fancy.  If you want to chat and people seem fri…
  • Funny that BWF, Allen Carr said the same in his give up smoking book - I didn't give up smoking for ages and never finished the book either.  Did it on my own in the end - about 18 months fag free now  Glad to say I'm feeling a bit better today, s…
  • Hi Dongato and good luck   Sounds to me like you're well on the way to kicking the habit. Hello Crazziefeet, nice to meet you too.   I've been really unwell again since last week, on the mend a bit now but still feeling a bit rough and wiped out…
  • Yes I have though for me it gets worse the longer I run then continues later that day and into the night.  Turns out I've got lots of gallstones.  Things that help are:   Mint tea, not lying down in bed, the pink double strength Gaviscon.  It di…
  • Hope you had a good party Trigger and your son enjoyed his birthday Did you find something on the menu you liked BWF. I didn't see the RW support group at Mudchute at all Soupy - I completely missed you all  I'm still laid up with this bloody …
  • Hi Tommygun - I've been awol from RW too for ages but popped back about a month ago.  I did THE marathon but it wasn't so crowded where I was near the back either.  We're doing some of the same races later this year aren't we.....
