I’m getting used to Sophiecat’s routine now of the 4am wake up and going back to bed! Today I decided to sleep in a bit as still feel tired from the week.
Today I was at the uni, presenting our team at our open day. With the sun shining, the campus looked beautiful and welcoming. Overall it was a great day, I love talking to prospective students and their families about why choosing our university is good for them as well as an opportunity to meet other lecturers in different subject areas. However, after the event I did see a photo of me on social media, at first, I didn’t even realise it was me as I didn’t recognise the person in the picture, but once I did realise it was me, I honestly felt physically sick about the way I look and I know that sounds really shallow. I need to get a grip on it and work out a plan to shift the kilos of weight I’ve put on as just do not feel comfortable in my own skin.
I got home in fairly good time after work, I had planned to pop to the shops to get a few groceries but my shoes were rubbing my feet so didn’t fancy walking any more than I’d already done.
Once home, I thought it would be a sofa evening for me but my friend texted to ask if I fancied a G&T so popped to theirs for a couple of drinks which was lovely just catching up & putting the world to rights. Do feel a little bit squiffy if I’m honest! Have drank plenty of water so hopefully, I won’t feel too hungover in the morning.
Still got a lot of things playing on my mind, but have booked a therapy session in for the end of July so if I can just hold out until then I think I’ll be able to move a few things forward and break some of the mental blocks I’m having right now.
