That got your attention, didn’t it? More on the boobs later!
I hope you’re doing well and not wilting too much in the continuing heatwave. I’ve been working up a sweat at the gym I’ve just joined. Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d say! The last gym I joined was about 17 years ago!! At 46 I have decided that it’s more important than ever to use it or lose it. Time to get fitter, healthier and more toned. I love home workouts but I don’t have a swimming pool, jacuzzi or trained instructors at home! Lots of my colleagues are signed up to the same gym. It’s so convenient as it’s in one of the buildings opposite QVC. In fact, I’ve been swimming with Debbie Flint and caught up with model, Ali Bailey, recently and she gave me some good pointers on using some of the equipment. I’m so surprised that I’m actually doing it! Doing it AND enjoying it. There’s a full programme of classes, which I really enjoy. I’ve done circuit training, something called Yogalates and a couple of other yoga classes. There are all sorts of others I can’t wait to try and I add a swim to my gym sessions with a nice, relaxing sit in the jacuzzi before showering off and either heading into work or home for the night.
Health is just so important and it’s easy to take it for granted. Speaking of which, I had a thorough health check the other week. I had some great results. It appears veganism is working in my favour. In fact, my diet is so plentiful in all the right nutrients now that I was told not to bother with supplements as I’m over supplementing and raising certain levels that are unnecessary. It’s remarkable the good that can be gained from eating a balanced plant-based diet! I was thrilled to pass with flying colours.
I also went for a mammogram. I was shocked to learn that there are thousands of women who are entitled to go for a regular mammogram, free of charge, on the NHS who don’t attend. I want to take this opportunity to plead with you to have yours if it’s available to you. Early detection of cancer is vital and possible to help prevent needless suffering and, potentially, death. Our very dear Alison Keenan has been through the trauma and heartache of having breast cancer yet she survived and is thriving now. Had she not been for regular screenings the story may have turned out very differently. My aunt also had her cancer detected early and has survived and is doing well. If you feel nervous about going please be assured there’s nothing to be afraid of in terms of the mammogram procedure. It’s a few moments of, how can I put this delicately, gentle squeezing. That’s all. Surely it’s worth it to avoid suffering far worse. Please check yourself regularly and PLEASE have the mammogram your taxes have paid for. You owe it to yourself and those you love and who love you.
Lecture over, it’s only because I care. Big hugs. Onto the subject of fashion. Have you seen our Today’s Special Value offer? It’s a gorgeous tunic. The great thing about Kim’s collection is that it’s trans-seasonal. So you could wear the tunic all year round. Also, it’s so easy to care for as well as being timeless so your investment today will see you through many years of use. Kim is a perfectionist so the fit of her garments is always spot on, too. I rarely buy outside of QVC when it comes to fashion these days. With brands as great as Kim and Co I just don’t need to. Check out her entire range here.
I look forward to catching up again next week. In the meantime, don’t forget you can always get more regular updates by following me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Details are below.
Finally, thank you for all of your continued support and interest in my blogs. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
Have a great week,
Love Catherine xx
