22nd June 2014You aren't being lazy when you take time for yourself. Rest prepares you to be more productive. Marilyn Suttle.
Project Priority 100% working, I’m back to my usual self, it really is all about balance of work and life for me, if I work too many hours, I really notice the difference because I already do enough for me. So yesterday I tidied the kitchen before going for my massage so one routine task done then after that I had my 4 hour pamper session at the Chi Rooms I’m now all smooth and chilled and I have painted toe nails. Went straight from there to garden centre to get me a few more plants which I shall put in tomorrow as that’s Mom day, then sat for most of the rest of the day in the garden – just chilling.
Today however I’m at work, we have an area meeting – our first actually as a new area so I better get this typed up quickly as I have to shower, dress, load my car and pick someone up at half 8.
My eating has gone back to healthy too which is the norm when I’m happy – I even used on of the Weight Watchers trackers to write it all down on yesterday, my day ended like this;
Char-grilled vegetable omelette 5pp
Ham, spread, cucumber on 2 slices wholemeal bread 6pp
2 bottles of becks blue 1pp
Chicken and vegetable kebabs, asparagus, wholegrain pilau rice 9pp
Slice of bread and ham 3pp
Milks in drinks 1pp
I’m pleased with that! Yep, I don’t stay down for long, if I notice my mood or my life changing in a direction I’m not keen on, I do something about it as soon as possible – life’s too short to be stressed when you can do something about it.
I highly recommend the frozen Char-grilled vegetables from Sainsbury’s, they’re very versatile and two bags for £2.50. I don’t recommend leaving a can of pepsi in the freezer to cool down quickly then forgetting it’s there, woke up to a slightly ajar freezer covered in exploded coke – oops ;-)
Hey ho these things come to remind us to pay attention!
Right I’m off, wanna sort myself out. Have a super Sunday all, stay BeYOUtiful and remember you can do this, check out this facebook post from last night in my group#
“Went shopping for trousers today and I came home with size 12! Me in a size 12! Unbelievable! Size 28 is a long distant memory to me now ;)”
“Omg I'm wearing a pair of jeans that I brought 11 years ago.. used them about two times and they got to tight never been able to wear them again until today... so pleased and chuffed they also have a one in front of them and not a two xxx”
Or this one;
“holiday clothes shoppin 2day and I went into a shop that only go up a 20 - said to my other half "i'll never get in a 20". Tried a lovely dress on and not only fit but looked quite nice!! Happy days. I know 20 is massive BUT it’s all on the way down and I feel fab so that's the main thing xx”
Anything’s possible if you put your mind to it and it’s not all about the final destination, it’s the journey that counts - make yours a great one BeYOUtiful. xx
