Good morning Clean hair, no makeup, hair roots desperate for the hairdresser

Tight dress after so many compulsive and frequent fridge visits.

However I’m well now – healthy physically and mentally and with positive thoughts for today.
I can only manage to think about one day at a time at the moment – I used to think ahead and plan. Now each day evolves from the moment I wake up according to how I slept the night before. .

Found my perfect spot at home to do more ‘live’ chats

Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
@nesseinlondon (Fitness/nutrition/sarcasm)
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old.
.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil – adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there’s another time of the day you would prefer.
Maybe evening – 6pm – better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons

2 brown onions
Olive oil
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing!

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden Is the way to go

I cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly.
I’ve just had my second appointment with her.

She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.

Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart.
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.

It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.

It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL – good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.

Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.

It even checks for cancer markers.

Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Vidhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.

The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180.
