Today marks exactly 6 calendar months until I turn 45 and time to step it up with changing my life!

The main areas I was focusing on when I started this blog:

  • Health
  • Fitness
  • House
  • Love
  • Garden
  • Finances
  • Mindset – limiting beliefs

Health and fitness – in all honesty, this has gone backwards especially over the last few months with my lack of motivation to exercise so time to dig deep into my inner strength & resilience and make it happen.

House – out of the 5 main rooms in the house that I need to sort & clear out, I’ve done 1 of them! So another area that I need to get a wiggle on with, I’ve asked one of my friends to help me with the kitchen as it feels like a task too big for me to tackle & to bring some fresh eyes into the room. Although I’ve only done one room I do feel like I’ve made more progress than it would seem as I’ve done some little DIY jobs and am generally throwing stuff out every week as and when I find it and it doesn’t bring me joy!

Love – this is on hold at the moment, I was on in November and chatted to a few men but found it hard as I feel I’m just not in a place where I feel comfortable being on the app and don’t think I have the energy to give it what it needs.

Garden – made some progress in August but not done much since, as we head into spring I am to start doing a little each week. The friend who did the energy healing last weekend is a gardener and has offered to help me make plans for the garden in an energy exchange if I cook her some food and give her some advice about food and nutrition to help with her running.

Finances – These are improving! I bank with Monzo and have set up a number of automatic payments to transfer money from my current account into saving pots on a regular basis and by the time I turn 45 I would have finished paying off 2 debts that I’ve had for a number of years so that will feel great when I make the last payments! My mindset about money is changing too, money no longer frightens me and I feel like I deserve to be paid my worth and celebrate being financially sound – my long-term aim is to be completely debt-free by the time I hit 50!

Mindset – getting over my limiting beliefs, this one is the hardest of the lot as it’s changing habits and thought patterns that I’ve had for over 4 decades in some cases so I know will take all my will and might to overcome them! However, I know that if I do all of what I set out above I know that I will have made great progress here too! This is also a less obvious change as I think subtle changes happen over time so all I can say on this one is watch this space!

Today has been a really chilled day, I made myself go swimming at the lake! It was bloody freezing to put it politely, my language wasn’t as I was getting in. They said it was 4.2°C! This is the coldest water I’ve ever swam in and did it in just my swimsuit, managed about 10 minutes, felt amazing afterwards and had lit up my soul to start exercising again.

The rest of the day I did another long meditation and then a couple of hours in the kitchen cooking food for the week!

The next 6 months are going to be busy but I can’t wait to see how much I can achieve…BRING IT ON!!

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.
