Falling Back In Love

DON’T PANIC…..I Repeat DON’T PANIC! Matt & I have not fallen out of love…..this blog isn’t about us!

A couple of years ago I made the decision to move to blogger and continue my blogging days on that platform. However no matter how much I tried I just didn’t like the look of it, I couldn’t upload posts via the app and I had to use a 2nd platform to share on social media. Although I would tell people my creative juices weren’t flowing and I slowly stopped writing. Looking back it was because I just didn’t like what I was producing and hadn’t fallen in love with the end project.

A couple of weeks ago a close friend of mine was searching for my posts on San Francisco and I had to make them public again on this blog. I found myself looking at the blog visually and getting lost reading old posts and it hit me. I wanted to write again, but I wanted to write HERE.

So, my past few weeks have been spent transferring posts from blogger to here and giving this a bit of a refresher. I loved my old template, but I have fallen in love with this new one and I just feel that its more me. For so long I have felt influenced by the blogging/vlogging world and trying to catch up. It has caused me alot of upset and anxiety when I have felt left behind or ungrateful for the amazing things that I have. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and looking back I shouldn’t have moved, I should have stayed put HERE, where I feel safe expressing myself and actually like the end product of what I am producing.

Its mad to think that just the right look and platform can inspire a person so much. My mind has been buzzing over the past few days and I have so many ideas of what i want to share with you. Now that I am feeling happier with my writing space and don’t care (ok I do still a little bit and I am working on it) about keeping up with the jones’, I know that my writing is going to go from strength to strength and I just hope that you will continue to read my story.

However, in the mean time, take a look around read through the 200+ posts i have written since 2013 and let me know what you like reading! For those of you that have only been reading since August 2015 – take trip back to earlier posts – there is a lot fun stuff that you missed out on.

But for now, this blogger is back and happier than ever!

Boredom Eating

It’s weigh in tomorrow, I am sat on my bed blogging and catching up on neighbours, I have eaten loads today and I am still hungry…..but hungry because I have nothing to do

I have realised I am your classic boredom eater and I have no idea how to solve it! Realistically this has probably been my problem for at least the last 6 months! Yes, I have my blog and my bucket list to keep me occupied & I also go to the gym, but that isn’t enough to keep me entertained.

I have associated sitting in my room surfing the web or watching crappy TV with some food of some description, I have also got used to snacking throughout the day at work and if there is birthday treats then surely it’s rude not to oblige and have some nibbles! But it needs to stop, I need to find ways to keep myself occupied and stop eating because it’s there OR because I have nothing else to do.

So here is a few rules I am putting in place to help me manage things better…….

1) Only Eat 3 Meals A Day – No Snacking
2) Do Not Eat After 7pm
3) Drink 2 Litres Of Water A Day
4) No Eating In My Room
5) No Social Media After 9pm – READ!!!

Now there may be occasions where this can’t happen, for example if I go out for dinner with friends etc, but if I can’t control 99% of my eating then that is the best step!

Now whilst I enjoy reading, going to the gym & blogging I need a new hobby and something to keep me occupied. I really enjoy travel especially the states and every time I look there is some where new I want to explore – maybe I can do something with that but what I am not sure yet…..

I am really pleased I have got this down on paper so that I can share this with the whole world! I have a plan and I want to stick to it, I need to find the will power to do it!
