Day 137 – Yoga

I’ve set myself the challenge of doing yoga every day in November following Adrienne’s home series. I’m surprised how much I enjoy the sessions, how my hips feel better when running and how I can feel antsy until I’ve planned it into my day. Another completely unexpected benefit is the extra bonding time with myContinue reading “Day 137 – Yoga”

Day 136 – Patchwork Quilt

I’ve tried to write this post three or four different times today. I recieved a patchwork quilt I had made yesterday, which had all of my favourite outfits my daughter had worn in the first year of her life. I’m gifting it to her at Christmas and I secretly hope it becomes “the blanket” sheContinue reading “Day 136 – Patchwork Quilt”

Day 133 – Lockdown Weekends

I’ve been really lucky this weekend to get out and meet an old university friend for a socially distanced stomp. It felt so refreshing seeing someone I hold so dear, catching up, sharing covid horror stories and discussing life. She’s been a friend since we met at university many many moons ago. One of theContinue reading “Day 133 – Lockdown Weekends”

Day 131 – Hanging in there

Just a quick one to wish everyone a happy friday. I’m still sober, still working on binge eating and liking myself again. Still doing yoga, a food diary and an eating schedule. Still have a stinky (but cute) rescue cat Hows everyone else on this dreary rainy friday afternoon? Love JS x

Day 124 – 4 months

So I reached 4 months yesterday and didn’t even realise until my sister text me to congratulate me (she reached 4 months today). I feel so proud that I’ve got here and thankful to the blog and you guys for all your support. When she text I’d literally just seen this image on someone’s storiesContinue reading “Day 124 – 4 months”

Day 103 -Bloody Covid

Sorry I havent written for 2ish days. I’m just awaiting the results of a covid test and have been so stressed about it. I’ve only got a sore throat, (which is really sore), but my friend I’ve walked with earlier in the week has tested positive. Her only symptom was a sore throat, her husbandContinue reading “Day 103 -Bloody Covid”

Day 63 – Swims and Walks

After falling over the stair gate last night and sporting bruises that made me look like I’d been in a fight, I got up and reluctantly went swimming this morning. To be honest, I really didnt want to go. My body was sore and bruised and my bed was warm and comfy. It was theContinue reading “Day 63 – Swims and Walks”

Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner

Today BB woke up in a grumpy mood. Possibly getting over a little bug they’ve had or teething or probably both. I had 3 hours to entertain them inbetween nap times and after playing with all their toys, lunch and an outfit change after a little accident we still had 2 hours to go. IContinue reading “Day 60 – Alcohol, the abusive partner”

Day 51 – The Squad

Today I’m proud and slightly flabbergasted (isn’t that a great word) to announce I’m part of a swim squad. A swim squad that meets at 6am in the mornings 😂. If you’d told me 51 days ago I’d be part of a swim squad in less than 2 months and I’d be complimented on myContinue reading “Day 51 – The Squad”

Day 48 – Positivity

So I’ve been reading a lot of your blogs and reflecting on the funk I’ve got myself in. Reading about reframing and resilience, looking for the positives when feeling blue. I’ve also brought the book the happiness project to help crawl out of this mole hole I’m in. Yesterday I felt awful in my ownContinue reading “Day 48 – Positivity”
