This is my 183rd post on this blog, which marks the halfway point of this transformation, not that much transformation has been happening of late!!

Perhaps that’s why I’ve not been feeling great these last few days.

Another day of not going to the gym and this is the last weekend this happens as I’m determined that I will get back into my “normal” routine.

I turned off my alarms this morning and Sophiecat woke me up just before 7am which I was very grateful that it wasn’t the usual 5am wake-up up call!

Made myself a coffee and put a sink load of dishes into the soak while I drank my coffee and got ready for the day. Did the dishes and headed to the shop to do my weekly food shop, the last few weeks I’ve let my food slip too, not unhealthy as such just not as planned as I usually am.

Got back home, put the food away and had some brunch.

Did more washing up, put a load of washing on, stripped the bed, vacuumed the house, washed the floors, made the bed and then I felt able to come into the reading room and do a meditation.

I’ve not meditated for months, during the first lockdowns of 2020 I started to meditate daily and really enjoyed it, not long meditations – usually about 15-20 minutes but found it helped calm my forever busy mind, then somehow I just stopped and not really found the motivation to do it again.

However, today I knew I wanted to do a long session, I usually use guided meditations and that’s exactly what I did today, it was 42 minutes and felt amazing after I was finished.

Now I’m still sitting under the fur blanket writing this blog post not wanting to move from my cosy spot but know I have to cook myself some tea tonight and I’ve got a small bottle of white wine chilling to celebrate blogging daily for 6 months!

I’ll do a proper reflection of how far I’ve got in these 6 months tomorrow but know now that these coming 6 months will need to be super-charged to make up for lost ground!!

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.
