Reasons to be Cheerful - The Gym, Chilling and Time with God

Hello friends, I hope this post finds you well. Sorry I am a bit late in the day with it. I remembered just as I was going to bed last night about 11pm that I hadn't written anything and I was supposed to be hosting, whoops! But to be honest I am quite pleased with myself that I didn't then sit up another hour and do it. I'm trying to be kind to myself at the moment and get good sleep as I know that it really affects my ability to eat well and want to exercise.

Eating Better
And you'll know just how much I need help on that front. I can't say I have been the best with food this week but I have definitely been better, I just need to remember to keep taking the medication that the doctor has given me and that means remembering to eat low-fat otherwise I pay the consciences in the bathroom (if you get what I mean!) and its not pleasant.

Going to the Gym
I've been to the gym twice this week and I'm not sure I can say I enjoyed it but I certainly didn't hate it and I've booked in for two more sessions next week, so I'll just take it one week at a time and hopefully all these little steps will add up and I'll start finding myself healthier and fitter.

Adjusting to Year 6
We had a very chilled weekend last weekend as the girls had spent the week at a PGL activity camp and whilst they had an amazing time, they came home like zombies. Miss E especially could hardly function and she is only just catching up now. I think year 6 has come as a bit of a shock to the girls as well as the emphasis on homework has really increased and today they went in dressed as evacuees with a shoebox each packed with all the things an evacuee child might have had to take away with them.

Time with God
In the last week I've carved out some nuggets of time when I have been able to just sit in peace and focus on God and it has been wonderful. I'm hoping to do the same again tonight. I feel so much better about life when I am connected and it just takes me being purposeful and not getting distracted with the crap of everyday life.

Getting on Top of Things
I might have mentioned that I have stopped doing some of my voluntary work and I've decided to leave finding a job until my health is much more in check and I've had the op that I am waiting for. This means that I have some time to myself and I have really been getting on top of things at home, sorting cupboards and shelves, making appointments for secondary school viewings for the girls and getting more paid blogging work.

So that's me, its been a good week. How has yours been?
