So I was pleased this week to have yet again realised that I must look after myself. More for myself than anyone else, I am listing the areas that I must look after -
- Sleep. I need to make sure I am getting more of this. I have made headway in the last week, there has not been a night that I have stayed up later than 11.30pm and that is good but not good enough. I need some early nights and to start feeling refreshed. Dh got up this morning and I had a lie in and it was bliss, so needed.
- Exercise. I rejoined the sports village at work last week (yes it really is as spectacular as it sounds, it hosts loads of training Olympians and me, lol!) and I have been to the gym a couple of times and also swam. My inner thighs are telling me they hate me right now in fact. I am feeling really good for some exercise and aim to do soem at least 3 times each week.
- Food. The last week has been bad, I have not been making a concerted effort but I was super chuffed to be asked by Slimavite to be a trailist for them. So in about a week I will be starting on their bite plan diet and blogging about it so you can all follow my success, for that is what it will be.
- Saying No. I promise to keep time for myself, to stop saying yes to things and offering to do things. I must keep some time to myself to just be. To read and to enjoy my life, not allow it to float past me.
