Day 159 -Breaking the cycle

Normally when I start binging on food, that’s it. I’m in a destructive cycle for weeks, with it escalating each day. I end up bloated, with a sugar hangover and feeling utterly rubbish with myself. I managed to stop binging after 2 days, which is a record for me. I tried to put into practiceContinue reading “Day 159 -Breaking the cycle”

Day 154 – Dreary Sundays

“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s quite delightful”. That pretty much sums up today. Earlier I ran 3 miles in sleet and loved it. I’m definitely a winter runner, love the feeling of the rain pelting my face. Talking of running, my running friend went to our cheese and wine deli toContinue reading “Day 154 – Dreary Sundays”

Day 153 – 5 months and baby kisses

Today marks 5 months of giving up alcohol (I’ve decided to count it from today). Today was also the first day I discovered how gorgeous (yet slobbery) baby kisses are. Emma gave me her first baby kiss and it melted my heart. I’d gone out for the morning to get my hair done and spentContinue reading “Day 153 – 5 months and baby kisses”

Day 152 – Gingerbread

Today in isolation we made gingerbread. I enjoyed the task with my SD, it was nice. She also loved it. My eating has gone a little bit squiffy again, but I feel quite relaxed about it. I ate 2 pieces of gingerbread with a hot chocolate with cream and had a pizza for tea. NormallyContinue reading “Day 152 – Gingerbread”

Day 151 –

My SD came early this morning and the house feels so much more alive having her here. Thankfully her test came back negative, she’s just got a nasty viral infection and cough. She loves the Xmas tree and loves that BB is now saying mama, dadda and cat. She’s desperately trying to teach her toContinue reading “Day 151 –”

Day 150 – Oh Xmas Tree

So my SD is still at her mums, hopefully awaiting her covid test results. We have text a couple of times to ask her how she is, but so far those messages are being ignored. I hate not knowing that she’s ok and it’s even worse for her dad. I had loads of anxiety thisContinue reading “Day 150 – Oh Xmas Tree”

Day 149 – Step families and Covid

As I predicted over a cuppa this weekend to my bemused (at the time) husband, it is all kicking off over my step daughter and covid. My step daughters bubble has got to isolate, there have been 5 cases in the last few days. She was spending the weekend with her mother when the newsContinue reading “Day 149 – Step families and Covid”

Day 148 – Grey Foggy Day

Today we took a chilly stomp round a park with fog for company. I loved it. We (BB and I) were meant to have our first swimming lesson, but it was cancelled so we had a long bath full of toys. We played. She napped, I did some maths (brushing up for September). Now she’sContinue reading “Day 148 – Grey Foggy Day”

Day 147 – Xmas ready and Yoga

In the panic of my SD potentially bringing in some festive covid on this forthcoming Wednesday, we decided to get Xmas ready today. I’ve finally completed the wrapping, like all of it. To be honest, I was dreading the wrapping. Normally in years gone by I’d be doing this in the evenings, with a glassContinue reading “Day 147 – Xmas ready and Yoga”

Day 146 – Nearly 5 months

Thanks everyone for their kind comments regarding the career change. One minute I’m wildly optimistic and excited. The next I’m having a wobble and quaking in my boots (today is the later). Just keep telling myself baby steps, break it down to easy steps. Then hopefully before I know it, I’ve baby stepped through aContinue reading “Day 146 – Nearly 5 months”
