Its friday, I’m tired sleep has abandoned me this week. I was a bit grumpy at the gym because my sock wasn’t comfortable~believe it or not I am 44 and not 4 and the only oomph I found was when I was leaving the gym and practically jogged out because I wanted to get to costa before work!
In other news my daughter made me cry last night~I came home and she had cut the grass and made dinner when I thanked her for doing so she said ‘Its ok I like to do things to help you’. I hope she knows how much those things mean to me, a truly thoughtful girl.❤x
I needed that more than I realised. It was hard to get going this morning and I was slow and grumpy with myself, it didn’t help that I forgot my ear buds and had the wrong underwear on(if you know you know!).
Anyhow I then reasoned with myself that 30 mins of exercise was 30 mins better than staying at home doing nothing. Its helped clear my head and get me motivated, very much needed on both counts. Happy #humpday everyone.❤x
After an accidental afternoon nap on the sofa, I dragged myself to the gym,managed to be late arriving but had a quick workout nonetheless, followed by aqua aerobics.
I absolutely love being in the water and it was definitely good fun.
The one thing I had forgotten about was how much I hate having to strut around essentially half naked to get to and from the pool, especially with the one way system which means you have to walk an extra lap of the whole pool side to get out,nothing like being out of your comfort zone!
Still I’m feeling happy with myself and definitely ready for bed. Happy #humpday.❤x
Its been a funny few weeks, not necessarily in a ha ha funny way either.
I’m blaming my hormones~who knew at the grand age of 43yrs old, I would be struggling to get my menopause medication right at the same time as trying to maintain co-ordination at aqua aerobics hanging on to my hrt patch with one hand and hitching my swim suit up with the other!
Its like the joys just keep on coming! Anyhow the point of this picture is just to say that having made myself go to the gym this evening then being able to walk out of said gym and having the beach right on my doorstep is something that I hope never to take for granted.
However the hot flushes, sleepless night and mood swings can hurry up and do one anytime they like!
P.s~I realise I’m totally selling myself here #stillsingle haha.
Cloudy morning visit to the beach after getting myself back to the gym. I will never ever underestimate the soothing sounds of the sea~literally so calming and peaceful, much needed after a pretty crazy week.❤x
I wanted to do it but when I woke up this morning I didn’t want to do it. I had plenty of reasons (excuses)for not wanting to including the fact that it was raining/snowing, I felt uncomfortable with myself in my clothes, I was tired the list of excuses could of been endless.
However I did it~I got up and went to the gym. It felt like starting all over again. I had just got myself into a routine of going and then lockdown 3 took care of that.
I was self concious walking in but once I got started it was fine.
6 miles on the bike later and I left feeling a hundred times better than I did when I woke up this morning.
Small steps for a big gain both mentally and physically.
