Day 118 – Morning Runs

Today I left the kids with their dad and got my trainers out and ran this morning. I’ve got some lovely fields by our home so I went to do a circuit round them, leaving trails in the dewy grass. As leaving them, I snapped this shot, although the photo doesnt do it justice.

I’m so thankful for this time for myself. To wake up fresh headed and be able to see nature do some of it’s best work.

In lockdown news, I’ve queued outside a cheese and wine shop for 45 minutes because they do the best local sauerkraut and I’m googling sour dough starter recipes.

I really need a self care night, so I’ve told the SD and Hubster that I’ve got a surprise for them. I’m going to push the couches together, make a den, stick on a movie, throw crisps at them and call it a Daddy daughter night.

I’m then planning on at least 90 minutes of peace to do my yoga and have a bath. Fingers crossed it works.

Hope are you all well today? I’m still doing yoga, reading my binge eating self help book and resisting the urge so far. I’ve noticed when faced with lots of choices for yummy food I actually get really worked up about it. My brain goes into over drive on a loop of convincing and resistance. Something definitely to discuss at the counselling next week.

  1. What a great plan for self care! One huge thing I realized during this pandemic is I need to plan ahead and set aside time to be alone, otherwise I get really cranky (and want to drink / eat too much). I am wonderful today as it’s my first morning in a few with no hang over! P.S. I am totally addicted to raw sauerkraut and plan to do some home fermenting this winter!

    1. I’m exactly the same, I have to plan it in otherwise I go on a binge. Bet today was a lovely feeling, I love waking up on a Sunday morning now. I love it too, I’ve found one to try with chipotle in so I’m excited to have that. Tried to make it once. Nearly as bad as the Xmas cake disaster
