Just a quick one tonight as I am not feeling well – feels like the start of norovirus which I ended up with three times last year during December and the New Year…hoping it’s not that!
Add to this the fact that I have been a grot-bag today…in a foul mood for some reason, and you will understand that I don’t want to inflict myself on you for too long.
Most of you know that I spent a long, long time hiding myself away – worried about what insults would get thrown my way. Since getting my positive mindset back on track, I have decided to go for it! My charity days with Jessie Pavelka and a bunch of lovely ladies was the start of this. My Slimming World talks have given me impetus too, and I have arranged a Christmas Gathering with some of those lovely Pavelka ladies and a couple more lovelies…and now this…
My little nephew is going to be thrilled – I hope. I wonder if Peppa Pig knows what is coming her way next year? WLB and her nephew…and other half! Apparently I need to take my wellies and umbrella…so this should be fun…no lunch box picnic of bacon sandwiches though I guess?!
I wrote a while ago about taking my nephew to the park for the first time. I hadn’t been out in public and was a little apprehensive. The grin on his face when I was pushing him on the swings was worth every ounce of that apprehension though…so any negative thoughts I may have about attending an event like this will be quashed with that positive reminder of how our last outing felt.
It isn’t just Peppa Pig that needs to watch out. I am on a mission to show my other half a little culture…so two Russian ballet performances have been booked, a Shakespeare production, three comedy gigs, a Warwick Davis play…and a night of Motown as he also needs a bit of music history education! We are going to an ‘adult’ panto on Christmas Eve too! Phew – my social life is a whirl now!
So that’s it – the finances have taken a beating this weekend…my diary for 2014 is filling up – and a Jimmy Carr gig in 2015 has got the year after next off to a good start. I am thrilled, but a little nervous and sort of ‘OMG, what have I done?!’ about it all really. After buying that sparky Christmas jumper though, I needed to plan a few nights out to show it off I suppose!
I guess I wanted to share my plans with you to show any of you that are struggling with the issues that I had that there is hope. Hiding away and wasting your life is not a good place to be…I know, I have been there. Dealing with your issue(s) and making changes is not fecking easy…but it can be done, slowly but surely, and you can start to get out there and live a little.
On that note, I am off to watch ‘Lie to Me’…I attempted Sons of Anarchy last night but I wasn’t really in the mood for it yet, although I have stuck it in my Netflix planner. Today – apart from my moods and spending spree – has been a bit ‘meh’. I managed to get to Aquafit, sorted the horses out, got to the shops and collected my sister from work tonight as her car is poorly. Other than that I have just been moaning at people and complaining all day! Hopefully tomorrow’s pyjama day will bring a better mood.
A lovely food day! Just bananas for brekkie…still no porridge, and it wasn’t in stock today either! Lunch was my favourite smoked salmon scrambled eggs. I wilted some spinach, sliced a couple of tomatoes, toasted my wholemeal rolls and assembled. Dinner was gorgeous – a really nice bit of steak. Some roasted squash, a roasted tomato and mushrooms stuffed with garlic and herb Philadelphia. My snacks were good, although my other half picked up the 2% instead of the 0% yogurt so it was slightly synned…and I couldn’t taste the difference so it’s 0% for me all the way!
Exercise: 60 minutes of Aquafit.
