So I’m all for positive thinking and making the best of any situation that may arise, but last week really did test me.
My husband had been back in work for 3 weeks after a year off and we were so excited about it, but I started to see the same signs as before and tried not freak out……. I failed so after a desperate phone call to a friend and some choice words from her, I really tried to put my positive pants on. Unfortunately my concerns were right and my husband is no longer working. I know he doesn’t want this and he cant help it, but to say I’m stressed about the whole thing is an understatement. Along with this I also had some unfortunate things going on at work that layered onto the delightful week.
The problem with me is I’m an all nothing kind of girl with a streak of control freak chucked in for good measure, so when things like this happen I have to control the situation to through it but it does mean I do turn to food as my comfort and stop caring about my own self. This then meant that I was freaking out for the whole week about what my slimming world results would be on the Monday. Vicious circle right.
The other thing about me is I’m very logical and generally this will out way my emotional side (most of the time) so for me I was excited when Sunday came as this is the beginning of a new week which means it’s a fresh start. I got through last week and was ready to enjoy my week of work. I was due to work Monday and then on annual leave and ready for all the catch ups with family and friends. Life doesn’t always go to plan so on Monday I had to deal with one of the hardest situations I’ve come across. I truly believe that everything I have to do will make me a better person, so although it was challenging this will have made me better in some way, that isn’t to say that it didn’t wear me down which meant I was grumpy for the whole day.
On Monday’s I go to slimming world and usually I look forward to this but OMG did I want to just hide away in the bath for the evening, but I was a good “slimming worlder” and got my bum on my bike to get weighed. It really wasn’t that bad as I maintained and I got to see my lovely group. I now have a heavy task on maintaining again this week which will be difficult, as I said earlier I’m a huge comfort eater and when this is teamed will having the week off to see family and friends the outcome probably wont be good.
I am very excited though as I will be going out at the weekend with my high school friends for an evening of prosecco, cocktails and dancing. I’m all about a good Beyoncé bum shake and a gallon of porn star martini’s so Saturday can’t come quick enough.
My plan for the next couple of days is get my hair sorted, my greys are like little shimmering stars that are trying to show the world (I honestly thought greys happened after you got to your 30’s) find an outfit that make me feel like i got my sh*t together and to chill out. Positive Wednesday has begun and I’m ready for what the rest of the week has in store for me.
FYI if any of the people of Norwich see’s some crazy dancing, cocktail loving curvy girl, that will be me so…… you’re welcome.
Thank you for reading the rambles of my life and lets all have an amazing week
