Recipes welcome.

Exercise routines welcome.

Hi Jos, porridge every morning, make mine with soya milk and dried cranberries, yum.

Quit the tabs - almost 3yrs for me, after a 25yr old habit. If I can, anyone can !

Gentle exercise every day (he says, whilst typing on the couch!), eg walking, gardening, (look after your hips +knees - especially if approaching middle age - no jogging around on hard or uneven surfaces!)
I often make a fruit salad breakfast with plain yogurt. Eat it any time of the day, yum! Generally vary the diet.
Even with incipient arthritis in those knees and/or hips a local gym may be able to help you loosen up / slim down with a programme using only low impact workout machines -eg arm cycles and cross-trainers.
And don't forget a good dose of socialising - company, conversation and a good laugh works wonders. Everything in balance and keep happy.

Everything in moderation is my motto. Eat less move more!

So I'll follow my own advice now and go for a walk 

Gardening Grandma

Low carbohydrate living and a vigorous daily walk my blood sugar down to a healthy level. Pity I didn't keep it up, really....

I have spent all day digging now time for Liver and Bacon with some hearty mash.

This is also my favourite way to eat porridge and 3 gym sessions a week help get rid of the chocolate
