It has been some time since I wrote a private submit so I assumed I ought to give all my pretty loyal followers an replace. I wish to share the nice and unhealthy of life and every part in between.
After I first began running a blog nearly 7 years in the past I wished it to be extra private than a recipe website with a cookbook and all the time sincere.
So right here I’m with the nice and the unhealthy, transferring home, weight and food plan, household life and my psychological well being!
I’m positive you should have seen me submit on social media or point out it in different articles, however earlier this yr we moved home. In fact, transferring home is tense, we nonetheless have issues we have now not unpacked within the storage however largely we’re all moved in now.
I like the brand new home, one image beneath of the surface earlier than we had the entrance backyard achieved (footage 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 tons extra footage and share these quickly.
It will be after a cleansing day although that I take the photographs if I took photographs now you’d see all types of random litter dotted round!
I like being within the new home, we have now extra space than we did earlier than, I’ve my very own workplace to work from and I’ve cherished 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 typically. There isn’t a actual cause as to why I don’t, it’s simply the best way issues occur however sure we’re nonetheless collectively and actually blissful.
Fathers’ day yesterday was a stunning household day. I all the time discover it arduous 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 one in every of Ben’s decisions!
We had just a few days away at Wembley for the soccer – the much less stated about that the higher, they misplaced!
Ben has lately completed his GCSE exams which I’m so happy with. He has autism and has all the time struggled quite a bit and I by no means imagined he would be capable of sit any GCSEs however he works and tries so arduous and has sat 3 topics, now hold your fingers crossed for outcomes day!
My weight and food plan
The image above leads me on to speak about my weight and food plan! 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 couple of 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 pounds once more for my well being. Additionally, I do know that I want to be slimmer once more.
That stated, I’ve struggled mentally quite a bit currently 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.
As we speak 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 start out 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 hold 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 actually perceive myself much more over current months.
I’ve come to just accept the issues I’ve suffered from over time and that they aren’t my fault and likewise settle for that on account of these I’ve PTSD and different ongoing points. That stated I’m additionally at a degree now the place I really feel I’m studying to just accept it extra and reside alongside these points reasonably than attempt to bury them or remedy them, neither of which is absolutely 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 acquire is sheer greed! I like meals and I like unhealthy meals! While I don’t goal to cease them utterly I do hope I can cut 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 battle to take care of myself and typically wash my hair much less ceaselessly and so forth so that is one thing I’m going to actually work on.
