So this is going live a little late… I wrote most of it on Sunday then got distracted and realised I didn’t hit publish. Ooops. But here we go is a slightly late Sunday ramble… It’s that time of the week again. Bath and pamper done. House is relatively (give or take) tidy, emails are being caught up with and I feel like it’s a good time for a little ponder on the blog about the week just gone and the week ahead. The two biggest things on my mind lately are health/fitness and blogging anxiety. Not necessarily my own when it comes to the blog topic, but in general – within the blogging community. But before I get on to that, a little about health/fitness.
I’ve talked a bit about how over the last year fitness and health has been bottom of my list of priorities. Now, in 2016 I want to make it a priority again and get feeling good about myself and in my clothes again. So in December I joined a gym and have started to try and make it part of my routine. I’m trying to focus on getting cardio fitness back a bit in January with running and general fitness above any weights/toning type stuff with the plan being to start working with a personal trainer once or twice a week from the end of the month onwards to really try and get in shape. I’ve only had a couple of PT sessions in my life so am very new to this and not totally sure what I’m looking for – someone who will push me but not annoy me.
On Sunday I sort of accidentally started to get involved in the #lbloggers twitter chat. When I say accidentally I don’t mean I didn’t mean to get involved, I just mean I didn’t go on to twitter planning to join – I just saw a few tweets and decided to pipe up with my opinion. Not necessarily something I make a habit of doing normally. But this is something I think I will make a point of doing more – not piping up with my opinion as such, just making an effort to get involved in Twitter chats. I think it’s a great way to really get involved with the blogging community and discover new blogs to read. Hopefully with quite a few years of blogging under my belt I have something to offer… who knows?! But if you know of any good Twitter chats then do let me know as would love to get involved!
I’ve been seeing a lot of this lately and think I need to gather my thoughts a bit and share them properly in a separate post. Lots of stuff I want to say. Just need to make sure it doesn’t come across as total waffle. So stay tuned for a dedicated post on this soon.
This week I have been mostly ….
Listening to: Elle King Ex’s & Oh’s – LOVE this song. Love the video. Now want my own little turquoise caravan. And a hot dog.
Eating: Pizza Express – rekindled my love for this place with a little lunch trip last week. SO good. Only once, not eating it all week, promise.
Wearing: Gym kit or my new over the knee boots from Ted & Muffy. More on these this week.
Doing: Blogging! Been really enjoying all aspects of blogging this week – and getting into Twitter chats and things a bit more.
Mission for next week… Keep on the blogging bandwagon, take lots of photos. Snapchat (I’m beautyjunkieldn on there if you want to follow what I’m getting up to!)
