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!!

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.
