I had big plans for today, nothing exciting really just some housework, work and “me time”.

That might sound strange having me time when I live on my own but it’s kind of me giving myself permission to do some self care.

It started well, went to intervals and then did a food shop and was home my about 10ish, put some coffee on and put the food away and then started doing the dishes while my breakfast cooked. I then made the fatal mistake of sitting on the sofa… and that where I stay for a good while, the main reason for this is mainly because I ache like shit from doing the workouts this week especially my legs so getting on and off the sofa is painful! I do like this pain if I’m honest as I know it’s only temporary and that it’s just my body getting stronger.

I eventually did get off the sofa and managed to do some of the house jobs I had planned to do like hoover and wash the fall, fill the garden waste bin with garden waste ready for the collection today but I also played on my phone for much longer than necessary and therefore didn’t do the long meditation I had wanted to do, I know I put it off as I know that it might bring up emotions that I need to deal with but pissed off with myself for not just sucking it and just doing it.

I do wonder though why I don’t do these things especially when I know that the process might not be comfortable but the outcome always is a positive and beneficial. A lesson to take forward to next week. This is even more important as my parents are coming to stay for 6 nights so need to find ways of staying calm and not allowing it to stress me out.

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
