Melon Cauli (by the Smashing Pumpkins) - a 10 / 10 thread, all welcome
For anyone who wants a boost to their general health. The suggested goals are:
EAT 10 PORTIONS OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES EVERY DAY - if you don't usually eat much fruit and veg I would build up gradually or you could upset your digestion.
DO (AT LEAST) 10 MINUTES OF EXERCISE EVERY DAY - can be yoga, stretching or something more energetic. The plan is that the idea of doing 10 minutes is not too daunting, and having started you may well find you want to do more.
There are no restrictions on what you eat so long as you get your 10 fruit and veg as well. The focus is not on weight loss but on improving our energy levels and hopefully our general mood and well-being. Sign up below and post here to tell us how you're getting on and how you are feeling.
Basic guidance on what constitutes a portion of fruit and veg here and you can download more detailed information by following the link at the very bottom of the page
FMF thought of Melon Cauli, and I added the Smashing Pumpkins bit. Was going to put the whole Infinite Sadness thing but thought a bit of a downer on our sensitive souls
Idris you escaped by the seat of your pants I did it once on someone else's very long running thread and ended up having to email MNHQ and beg my post to be removed so the link to the new thread could be added
Don't like orange? Not sure if we can be friends now..
I am very envious of your kitchen. I spend more than I have on good food and clean floors but if I could forgo some of that and save. That is a notion isn't it? Saving for a larger purchase? You seem very good at it. I am still at the one sweet now rather than two later stage of life. I must work on that.
