The cause - who knows?

OK I have been missing again. I have another excuse - it is on my face this time. I have suffered with what I have labelled "winter eczema" for what seems like forever and it was mainly on my legs and mainly in winter. I only learned a couple of years ago that it goes hand in hand with the Hashimotos (autoimmune disease) that I have. Well three to four years ago it moved to my neck and once again only in winter so one would assume it is temperature related. Now it is on my FACE !!!! I thought initially it may have been from a product I was using but I'm not so sure now. I haven't seen my holistic GP as she takes weeks to get into but I did send her an email. She knew about Roger as I saw her in the Hospital coffee shop one morning. Her take on it is that it is STRESS related. And it possibly could be. Anyway I have left off all makeup and was initially putting just Bio Oil on it but yesterday I decided to try some coconut oil and that has helped immensely. The redness has gone and it is just dry and scaly now so fingers crossed it disappears without any scarring.

Goals - I managed to get out there for a 2km walk this morning and will ramp up the distance as and when I can. I will also get the tape measure out and take some measurements - I have been saying this for months but I WILL DO IT when I get off here and I'll add them to this post.

Food - After multiple failures with my home made stuff I have pulled back and am only going to stick with things I know work for me. A lot of the creations (particularly bread and cheese) have been thrown out and the ingredients were quite expensive. Anyway that's it for me today. I plan to come back once a week with a further report.

Measurements: B = 115 M = 111 W = 109 H = 118 T = 53
