Today here in the UK is a Bank Holiday so had a pretty quiet day! Slept in after feeding Sophiecat at 5am.
Got up and came straight to my desk to start working or at least doing some admin, today felt like a Sunday so nice to crack on with some work without the constant email notifications & the phone buzzing, I tidied my office which feels good, I do need to spend time sorting stuff out though as all the cupboards & storage boxes are crammed full but that’s a job for another weekend.
While I was working I’ve been thinking about how I’ve been feeling the past couple of days and have decided to stop doing my challenge – I’ve realised that I put all these conditions on myself that just make my life more pressurised that it needs to be.
I do know that I need to get back into a routine when it comes to exercise but everything else on that sheet I generally do most days. I have a really good relationship with both food and alcohol so why do I need to deny myself things that I like to eat and drink.
I never drink to excess and don’t use it as a crutch or self-medicate with it so why give it up if I can take it or leave it?!? Same with food, 95% of the time my food is on point, so why not have a piece of cake if I fancy it!
I think what I need to do is just be more mindful about making choices & do the right thing by me at the time & not think anything more about it!
I don’t have any points to prove to anyone other than myself and I don’t need to do that either if I’m honest. I just need to be kind to myself and live each day as it comes and do what makes me happy!!
