So if you weren’t aware (and sorry if you are and I’m teaching you to suck eggs), the term “two fat ladies” comes from bingo halls in the UK. It might also be in other countries, but I’ve not played bingo since being a kid in a social club with my Irish Nana.
The term has always made me smile and brings back fond memories so I feel it is fitting for todays day 88. It goes hand in hand with memories of smokey social clubs, with a packet of crisps and a panda pop from my childhood with my dads side of the family. My nana used to sit looking over her over sized glasses, blouse with a collar and cardigan, sipping her shandy taking the whole thing very seriously.
I’m also…. and this won’t come as a shock to any of you… still a little bit fat. Now I know I’ve just had an operation, but I feel so excited to be able to do things again. I’ve been too nervous to run alone, take part in races due to this heart. I’ve also hidden behind it, using it as an excuse not to push myself.
Well today I feel slightly sore, but thrilled and exhilarated. I’m so excited to get back out there and run, especially the rainy wintery runs I love so much. It’s also made me think lots about heart health in general and whilst on bed rest I’ve been googling healthy heart food and planning wholesome food for us all. I’m hoping exercise combined with this will reduce my viscal fat and help my body be as healthy as it can be. Not being a drinker will also help that.
My friend who lives in the country text today saying I bet you’re relieved you can drink fizz again and it’s made me realise how far I’ve become. I’m not in the slightest interested in having a drink. Im more excited about the massive toblerone and this amazingly cheesy hallmark series I’ve found.
So although I’m coming to the end of the 100 days (less than 2 weeks away), I’ve still got so much work to do and life to live. I cant tell even begin to tell you how excited I am and how grateful for everyone who’s taken the time to comment and support.
I hope you’re all well and healthy. If anyones got any healthy recipe ideas let me know.
Ps-I know toblerone isnt healthy heart food, but its food good for the soul after an operation ♡
