A new start….or just a refresh???

Sometimes you need to take a step back and look at where you are, and where you want to be. I’m on a journey to lose weight and get healthy, and I’m getting there slowly but surely….and sometimes I need to realise that it’s ok to take it slow.

I’ve lost weight quickly before and it’s come straight back on and I’ve added some. However this time, there is something inside that is different, I really want this to happen. It’s not all about the weight loss- my main reason was to get healthy and to try and reverse some of the damage that I have done to my body.

Since I began this journey in January, I have lost weight, dropped dress sizes and most importantly I no longer have to take insulin for my diabetes. This is a major step forward in my journey to be healthy, but is only a stepping stone to my end goal.

This post probably doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but it’s just what was in my head tonight and I wanted to get it down.

Have a great week all – whatever you do – do your best and have fun!

Monday Musings

It’s been a very busy month – hence the lack of posts. However, hopefully things will start to settle and I can get back to some normality.

I sit here thinking about life, nothing too deep but just life in general. It’s a bit of a cliche but life really is what you make it! I need to get my life running back in the direction I want it to be, I appear to be stuck at a red traffic light, not going backwards but not going forwards either.

So what do I need to change to change that light to green?

I need to put myself first and get my sorry backside back in the gym.

I need to get my house straight and clear a load of clutter.

I need to appreciate how far I’ve come and how well I’ve done health wise.

I need to get my study brain in as I’m about to start my OU degree.

I think that’ll do for now – I’ll be back to post again real soon!!!
