Quite a chilled day, an early wake up with Sophiecat but managed to get an hour in after I fed her.
Today I went to the lake for a swim the water was around 13.4°C so was still cold when you first get in but once you are acclimatised to it then it was lovely, only did 2 small laps about 18 minutes of swimming as knew I was tired from the week, it was just relaxing to get in the water and just float on my back!!
Once home, I grabbed some food and then decided to cook my roast dinner early to have an early tea as planned to go for a walk with my friend.
I spoke to my herbalist yesterday and she is going to send me some more herbs to take for a couple more weeks before we can meet up to have a review. I’ve been taking the tincture twice a day for a month and do feel like the weight of tiredness I’ve been carrying around for years has been lifted, even this week when I had so much going on I felt tired but not the heaviness I’ve felt in the past which is utterly amazing.
I’m planning on going back to the gym in the morning which I’m a bit apprehensive about as it’s been nearly 5 weeks since I last went but know that once I get there tomorrow, each day after that will become easier. I’m starting my 95-day challenge tomorrow. The plan is each day for the next 55 days to:
- Eat healthy food
- No cake, chocolate, biscuits, sweets & crisps
- 2 x exercise a day – one being outside
- No alcohol
- Drink 3 litres of water
- Read at least 5 pages of a self-development book
- Fill out a page in the self-discovery book
I know this might sound a lot, personally it’s not really as I do most of this regularly anyway or I did in the past and want to get back into the routine of it all again… wish me luck as I know that there will be days when it will be hard!!
