That’s my way to do it

10 January 2014

This time last year I weighed 2 stone (28lb) more than I do today. I still have a long way to go, but I think I’ve found the best way for me to do it. I have found an exercise that suits me and that I enjoy. For me it’s been Zumba and at the end of last year Fitsteps. Both are aerobic / dance exercise and I love it. If I have the time I can go to 6 Zumba classes a week, however, more realistic and sustainable is 3 hours a week. It’s become part of my week now thanks to the wonderful Charlotte Macari and her team at Charlottesville. Read more

Do something good today?

14 May 2013

I am ashamed to say that I had not given blood for sometime, but have recently started to donate again. I have no idea why I didn’t go before now, except that I would see the vans in our town centre and think I must get around to it and then of course forget! However, a friend was going to donate so I went along with her and now i am back on the Blood and Transplant system. Click here to see how you can become a blood donor. It really is easy and painless.

Today I have also joined the bone marrow register. It is something that is important to me. I have no experience personally of requiring a bone marrow donation other than in my nursing days. I still remember a couple of patients particularly who had leukaemia. A young boy called Gary who was 19. He walked ion to our ward looking fit and well. Sadly he did not walk off the ward, but died from the leukaemia he had been admitted with. The other patient, John, was an older, but only in his 40s. His attitude towards his leukaemia was to pretend it dudn’t exist. Sadly he too died.

More recently a friend’s daughter has had treatment for Hodgkins lymphoma and is doing brilliantly. She met the inspirational Alice Pyne whilst receiving her treatment. Alice wrote her bucket list and top of that list was to get everyone to donate bone marrow.

It’s so easy to join the register. If you’re in the UK you can join the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Register here. You need to be between 16 and 30. If, like me you’re older you can join the British Bone Marrow Registry here.

Go on; do something good today.
