It has been some time since I wrote a private put up so I believed I ought to give all my beautiful loyal followers an replace. I need to share the great and unhealthy of life and every part 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 web site with a cookbook and at all times trustworthy.
So right here I’m with the great and the unhealthy, transferring home, weight and eating regimen, household life and my psychological well being!
I’m certain you’ll have seen me put up on social media or point out it in different articles, however earlier this 12 months we moved home. In fact, transferring home is anxious, we nonetheless have issues we have now not unpacked within the storage however largely we’re all moved in now.
I really like the brand new home, one image under of the surface earlier than we had the entrance backyard completed (photos right here of the brand new backyard). This picture was taken on the day we obtained the keys so we have now modified quite a bit inside too and I have to take heaps extra photos and share these quickly.
It will be after a cleansing day although that I take the images if I took pictures now you’d see all types of random litter dotted round!
I really like being within the new home, we have now more room than we did earlier than, I’ve my very own workplace to work from and I’ve liked 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 speak about him typically. 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 glad.
Fathers’ day yesterday was a stunning household day. I at all times discover it laborious as by no means had a relationship with my dad and am not massively near my stepdad. This 12 months Ben selected Stuart some presents himself and wrote his personal card and many others. This hilarious mug was one in all 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 lately completed his GCSE exams which I’m so pleased with. He has autism and has at all times struggled quite a bit and I by no means imagined he would be capable of sit any GCSEs however he works and tries so laborious and has sat 3 topics, now preserve your fingers crossed for outcomes day!
My weight and eating regimen
The image above leads me on to speak about my weight and eating regimen! The elephant within the room, I run a wholesome consuming web site however I’m not wholesome in the mean time!
As you may 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 (perhaps extra) and bingo wings.
I do know that I have to reduce 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 recently 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.
In the present day I’ve weighed myself and it isn’t fairly, however hopefully, now it’s only going to go down from right here. I’m initially going to begin by simply consuming extra healthily and begin gently then I feel 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 preserve 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 current months.
I’ve come to simply accept the issues I’ve suffered from over time and that they aren’t my fault and in addition settle for that on account of these I’ve PTSD and different ongoing points. That mentioned I’m additionally at a degree now the place I really feel I’m studying to simply accept it extra and reside alongside these points slightly than attempt to bury them or remedy them, neither of which is basically potential.
While my psychological well being has most undoubtedly affected my weight I can’t actually say it’s the solely trigger. The primary reason behind my weight acquire 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 get pleasure from and loving my physique extra. When I’m depressed I battle to take care of myself and typically wash my hair much less often and many others so that is one thing I’m going to essentially work on.
I’ve additionally made myself an Amazon wishlist and at any time when I really feel down and like treating myself to chocolate or comparable I’ll purchase myself one thing off that! In fact, be happy to have a nosey, I obtained just a little carried away when constructing it!
