    Strangely enough I saw a vid with a squirrel in it yesterday....

    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Nope! Still can't envisage how the 'dog run' would be on your land! But no worries!

    Don't worry about sugar-free February! You can do it!

    Remember the distraction tip!

    Another way to distract yourself is to put on some lively music and sing along to it!

    Bananas help too!


    I'm going to be giving up Viennese sandwich biscuits (I don't really eat any other sort, unless I'm offered a ginger nut) and, as that's not much, I'll also give up crisps. I don't eat that many, but they are starting to creep into my shopping trolleys a bit more than I'd like.

    And, although I haven't had any caramel panna cottas for over a week, I'll give those up, because I tend to buy two packs at once and eat them all in a day!

    I'll also continue with the Dry thing, and I'll definitely restart the 5:2.
    Properly.


    That's my February Pledge!

    I must keep up this Pledge thing, while I'm in a pledgey frame of mind!



    As I said before, it really helped knowing that you lot knew I was doing it, and having you rooting for me!

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well on this thoughtful and scrumptious
    day!






    Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 22-28 January 2018

    The theme for the Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2018 is
    “Reduce your risk”

    Cervical cancer can be prevented. With your help we can ensure
    every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease
    and the steps they can take to look after their health.

    This means:

    Attending cervical screening when invited

    Knowing the symptoms of cervical cancer and seeking medical
    advice if experiencing any

    Taking up the HPV vaccination if aged 11-18

    Talking to friends and family to ensure they know how they can
    reduce their risk

    Knowing where to find support and further information



    How can you get involved?

    We want to see the day when cervical cancer is a disease of the
    past. Join us this Cervical Cancer Prevention Week to get closer to
    that day.

    There are lots of ways you can get involved including:

    Hold an awareness day in your office, business, university, GP
    surgery or community centre: You can order our free materials to
    display and hand out. Check out some tips on raising awareness
    locally

    Share your story: If you have been personally affected by cervical
    cancer or abnormalities and would like to talk about your
    experience to raise awareness then please get in touch

    Use social media: Share the below images on social media to help
    us spread the word about cervical cancer prevention

    Write a blog or create a news story, contact your local newspaper
    to let them know about the campaign

    Host a fundraising event: Bake cakes, dress in pink, organise a
    work quiz or sponsored cycle. Every pound raised will help us to
    raise awareness and support those affected

    Contact your MP to raise awarenss of the issues surrounding
    cervical cancer and prevention in your local area

    Get your workplace to sign up to Time to Test, a campaign which
    raises awareness of cervical cancer in the workplace and ensures
    female employees can have the time to attend cervical screening if
    they are unable to get an appointment outside of working hours

    Join our #SmearForSmear campaign to help us spread the word
    about the importance of smear tests in preventing cervical cancer.

    For any extra information about the campaign, please email
    media@jostrust.org.uk

    Farmhouse Breakfast Week

    The Shake Up Your Wake Up campaign includes an annual
    Breakfast Week (usually the last week in January) celebration
    championing the importance of breakfast which takes place every
    January.



    Breakfast Week is managed by HGCA and run on behalf of arable
    farmers who grow crops such as wheat, barley, oats and oilseed
    rape. The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness of the
    benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the wealth
    of wonderful breakfast produce available around the country. We
    want to encourage people to think about where their breakfast
    foods come from and support the cereal farmers who produce it.



    All stages of the food chain, from farmers to food producers and
    retailers to consumers are encouraged to get involved and hold
    events during the week to promote the importance of starting the
    day with breakfast. Activities include tasting sessions, breakfast
    competitions, cookery demonstrations, special breakfast menus
    and school breakfast clubs to name just a few.



    https://www.farmstay.co.uk/Accommodation/HolidayIdeas/FarmhouseBreakfastWeek







    Farmhouse Breakfast Week - 22-26 Jan 2018

    In January, we hold breakfast workshops for schoolchildren across
    Lincolnshire to learn all about healthy eating and where our
    breakfast foods come from.



    For a whole week from Monday 22 January, school children from
    across the county are given the opportunity to get really hands-on
    with lots of fun farm-to-form interactive activities, focused on the
    most important meal of the day - breakfast!



    These workshops give children the opportunity to learn more about
    importance of a healthy and filling breakfast, and help to promote
    the wealth of wonderful breakfast produce that is grown in the
    county of Lincolnshire.



    https://lincolnshireshowground.co.uk/whats-on/event/farmhouse-breakfast-week





    Have a brilliant and safe day all whatever you have planned. I will
    catch up later.

    PYXIS's DRY JANUARY!

    DAY 21: Sunday Jan 21st


    21 down, 10 to go.




    Three whole weeks done! Yey! Go me!


    As well as my sleep being a bit better, my digestive system is back to normal, and I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but my singing voice seems better too.

    I suppose alcohol is a dehydrating factor, which affects vocal cords, and maybe its muscle relaxant feature contributes. Plus both would affect the diaphragm, which is used a lot in singing.

    Interesting possibility.


    Here is my Nix and Kix drinks report……….


    Got this from their website……


    https://nixandkix.com/about-us/#ourmission


    “OUR MISSION:-
    Our mission is to remove the stigma and boredom that surrounds soft drinks.
    For too long, soft drinks have been an ugly sister to alcohol, to functional drinks and to fresh juices. There’s been a lack of imagination, a lack of experimentation and a lack of passion. That’s the problem we’re here to solve.
    We’re here to give soft drinks a new name. And some added kick.”


    The kick comes from including cayenne and chilli in them!

    Nix refers to no sugar added, not knickers!

    And Kix refers to the kick you get from the cayenne and chilli, not trainers!
    And the chillies are grown in Bedfordshire!



    They say this……

    “CAYENNE HAPPINESS”
    It surprises most people that a soft drink containing no added sugar or chemicals can deliver a kick that inspires that ‘wow’ moment. And it’s that instant surprise that we love.
    We add chillies to our drinks for a few really good reasons:

    The Science..........
    Capsaicin (the hot bit) in chillies has metabolism boosting and energy releasing properties. Even better though: it also increases endorphin levels and provides a natural, happy feeling.

    The Flavour...........
    The chilli flavour kick makes our drinks a less boring choice for afternoon refreshment, while giving them an edge as a viable soft drinks option at night. As we’re adding spice to our drinks, we can also keep the overall sugar content much lower than other soft drinks as there’s something else more exciting going on than just ‘sweet’.”




    They sell their drinks online, or through Ocado, or Waitrose sell the large bottles, in the soft drinks aisle. There are smaller bottles but W don’t do those. Plus they are a small British firm, which is nice, started by two girls!

    I bought the Peach and Vanilla, and the Mango and Ginger. (They also do Cucumber and Mint, but I didn’t buy that as I’m not keen on mint and I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, and as it was a large bottle, I didn’t want to risk it).

    Anyway, the flavour of both the others is quite subtle but nice. They are more frizzante than sparkling. The cayenne and chilli can’t really be tasted, but there is a slight kick at the back of the throat. Only slight though. If I hadn’t known it contained cayenne and chilli, I wouldn’t have guessed from the taste.

    Out of the two, I prefer the mango and ginger, because the taste of that one is unusual, and more ‘special’.
    However, I’d have preferred a bit more of the ‘kick’.

    If I had to choose between them and my blackcurrant juice with tonic, I’d choose the blackcurrant and tonic, because I love the taste of blackcurrant and it has the tartness I like.


    The ingredients of Nix and Kix are very good, though, (see below) and there are only 20 calories per 100ml, which is half that of the other fizzies I like.


    Mango and Ginger:

    Ingredients: sparkling spring water, fruit juices from concentrate 45% (apple, grape, lime, mango), ginger and other natural flavourings, cayenne and serenade chilli extracts, natural colouring extracts (safflower, beta carotene), citric acid.

    Peach and vanilla:

    Ingredients: sparkling spring water, fruit juices from concentrate 35% (grape, lime, peach), Bourbon vanilla and other natural flavourings, cayenne and serenade chilli extracts, natural colouring extracts (safflower, sweet potato), citric acid.

    Cucumber and mint:

    Ingredients: sparkling spring water, fruit juices from concentrate 31% (grape, cucumber, apple, lime), garden mint and other natural flavourings, cayenne and serenade chilli extracts, citric acid



    They might be good ones for the sugar-free February, though!

    PYXIS's DRY JANUARY!

    DAY 22: Monday Jan 22nd


    22 down, 9 to go.


    Only single figures left now!

    I am deffo on one of these……………..!!









    It’s interesting. I was in my garden centre at lunchtime, yesterday, and it’s one where they have lots of gifts and paraphernalia that has nothing to do with gardening, and they also have a food section with speciality jars, bottles, packets of things.
    As I was walking towards the cafè, I noticed some shelves in the food section had bottles of beer.

    I also noticed that as I walked past, my gaze stayed on them just a few microseconds longer than I would have liked!

    But, I didn’t go over to have a look!


    As a reward, later on while I was looking at some plants, another random person came up to me and said they liked my hair!
    Mind you, I liked hers too, so we had a hair-mutual-appreciation interchange!



    From the Dry January app, more talk about habits and association……………
    (For ‘drink’ or ‘bottle of wine’ you can substitute ‘biscuits’ or chocolates’ or whatever).....................

    “Habits are odd little things. They kind of sneak up on you.
    You might start off with the best of intentions, but over time they erode into something pretty tough to break.

    For some it might be that they hadn’t really noticed that they make a drink every night when they get in from work. Maybe it started over the summer – they were warm when they got in, so a cool drink seemed a good idea. Then by mid-winter it was just something that they did every day.

    For others it might be that Friday night bottle of wine with their partner. It started when they threw caution to the wind and decided to forget chores and stress, opening a bottle and having a lovely evening together. Then they associated the lovely evening with the wine, and not the fact that they had a night in with the person they love after leaving their worries at the door.

    One of the most powerful things about Dry January is the ability to stop these old habits dead in their tracks, and force you to confront them head on.”



    ......A bit like me having a drink when I was preparing veg for cooking, because that’s such a boring thing to do. That’s where my blackcurrant and tonic drink comes in!

    ......I also found I was reaching for one when settling down to watch TV.

    ......And of course, if someone in a programme poured themselves a drink, I’d say, “That’s a good idea! I’ll get myself one!”

    Now though, I might momentarily think that, but I tell myself it’s just a habit; I don’t need it. And then after a few minutes, I’ve forgotten about it.

    Besides which, one would just lead to another one, etc.

    Same with the Viennese biscuits. I can’t stop at two or three!
