It has been some time since I wrote a private put up so I assumed I ought to give all my pretty loyal followers an replace. I wish to share the great and dangerous of life and the whole lot in between. After I first began running a blog nearly 7 years in the past I needed it to be extra private than a recipe website with a cookbook and at all times trustworthy. So right here I’m with the great and the dangerous, transferring home, weight and weight loss program, household life and my psychological well being!
I’m positive you should have seen me put up on social media or point out it in different articles, however earlier this yr we moved home. In fact, transferring home is disturbing, we nonetheless have issues we’ve not unpacked within the storage however largely we’re all moved in now.
I really like the brand new home, one image beneath of the skin earlier than we had the entrance backyard achieved (photos right here of the brand new backyard). This picture was taken on the day we acquired the keys so we’ve modified quite a bit inside too and I have to take heaps extra photos and share these quickly.
It might be after a cleansing day although that I take the images if I took pictures now you’d see all kinds of random litter dotted round!
I really like being within the new home, we’ve more room than we did earlier than, I’ve my very own workplace to work from and I’ve beloved the contemporary begin a brand new home brings.
Somebody requested me the opposite day if I used to be nonetheless with Stuart and it occurred to me that I don’t discuss him usually. There is no such thing as a actual cause as to why I don’t, it’s simply the way in which issues occur however sure we’re nonetheless collectively and actually completely happy.
Fathers’ day yesterday was a beautiful household day. I at all times discover it onerous as by no means had a relationship with my dad and am not massively near my stepdad. This yr Ben selected Stuart some presents himself and wrote his personal card and so forth. This hilarious mug was certainly one of Ben’s selections!
We had a couple of days away at Wembley for the soccer – the much less mentioned about that the higher, they misplaced!
Ben has not too long ago completed his GCSE exams which I’m so happy with. He has autism and has at all times struggled quite a bit and I by no means imagined he would be capable to sit any GCSEs however he works and tries so onerous and has sat 3 topics, now maintain your fingers crossed for outcomes day!
My weight and weight loss program
The image above leads me on to speak about my weight and weight loss program! The elephant within the room, I run a wholesome consuming web site however I’m not wholesome in the mean time!
As you possibly can see I’m not skinny anymore. I’ve put weight on over the previous few years or so and I’m again to having two chins (possibly extra) and bingo wings.
I do know that I have to drop some weight once more for my well being. Additionally, I do know that I wish to be slimmer once more.
That mentioned, I’ve struggled mentally quite a bit these days and that has put me off beginning. I really feel like I have to take management and begin afresh however not get as obsessed as I did beforehand.
Right this moment I’ve weighed myself and it isn’t fairly, however hopefully, now it is just going to go down from right here. I’m initially going to start out by simply consuming extra healthily and begin gently then I believe I’ll begin a plan.
I’m undecided which one but! I’m additionally very conscious that my psychological well being is a pivotal a part of this and I have to maintain engaged on that too.
My psychological well being
I’ve struggled on and off with my psychological well being for lots of my life. With the assistance of counselling and assist from Stuart and associates, I’ve began to essentially perceive myself much more over latest months.
I’ve come to just accept the issues I’ve suffered from through the years and that they aren’t my fault and in addition settle for that because of these I’ve PTSD and different ongoing points. That mentioned I’m additionally at some extent now the place I really feel I’m studying to just accept it extra and dwell alongside these points moderately than attempt to bury them or remedy them, neither of which is basically doable.
While my psychological well being has most positively affected my weight I cannot actually say it’s the solely trigger. The primary reason for my weight achieve is sheer greed! I like meals and I like unhealthy meals! While I don’t purpose to cease them utterly I do hope I can scale back the amount of them and have a bit extra restraint!
I’m engaged on doing extra for myself and studying extra, discovering issues to try this I take pleasure in and loving my physique extra. When I’m depressed I wrestle to take care of myself and typically wash my hair much less steadily and so forth so that is one thing I’m going to essentially work on.
I’ve additionally made myself an Amazon wishlist and every time I really feel down and like treating myself to chocolate or comparable I’ll purchase myself one thing off that! In fact, if you happen to fancy treating me to something off it be at liberty to, I acquired slightly carried away when constructing it!
