It's just turning 5am and we've been up since half 3, mom decided it was morning, I wasn't in agreement but there are days like this and I was hoping she'd fall asleep in her chair - she hasn't! It's going to be a long day, it's her birthday so I need to dig deep for energy and patience especially as that wasn't the first time she'd woke me through the night.
Despite this and an accident before going to bed, we had quite a good day. She started to become unsettled at tea time but with some patience and distraction tactics, I managed to bring her round. I let her have one of her pressies which made her happy.
My brother popped round too for a few hours, it was so good to see him, not seen him since before lockdown so we weren't short of things to say. Mom then spent the rest of the day looking for the money he'd given her 🙄
Today's all about mom, it's her birthday, she's got the dentist to have teeth out - it could go either way!
I'm going to go and try to do my yoga, she's a little clingy this morning so not sure it'll be possible but if I don't try I won't know.
I loved hosting the virtual workshop in the Stafford connect group, it was a great way to start my day.
Here's to having a great day today. Wish me luck!
Mwah, luv ya

What habits do you want to form? What changes do you want to make?
Working on those healthy behaviours are what will help you succeed. Be realistic about what you can achieve, what you're capable of doing? Don't overestimate your future motivation! It's easy to sit here reading this on a Sunday morning thinking "yeah I'm gonna do this, I'm ready, let's get 2 stone off by Christmas." doing it on the other hand, isn't going to be a walk in the park - although a walk in the park would definitely help and is something you could easily do!
Focus on behaviours you can work on, things like drinking more water, walking 30 minutes a day, eating more zero foods, keep it real. Choose to work on behaviours you can do on your hardest day!
Let's think about that for a minute, when I'm at my best I can easily do all the healthy stuff like yoga in the morning, followed by a huge glass of water, a couple of pieces of fruit, a dog walk, but can I continue to do all them when my mom wakes me up at 3am in the morning or when she's having her worst day and I'm stressed to the max and not feeling the love?
Actually yeah I can, because I choose behaviours to work on that I can do even on my toughest day. Now the behaviour I'm working on at the minute is giving me a little more leeway 'eat more zero heroes' notice I've said 'more' rather than putting an amount on it. That way if I have a bad day and don't manage to eat many because I make bad choices then I haven't failed, I've still eaten more on the other days.
I'll leave you with that thought, if you chose to work on behaviours you can do on your most difficult days - what would they be?
Mwah, luv ya
Love me xx

- Roman chamomile
- Ylang ylang
- Orange or orange blossom
Using scents to treat your mood is called aromatherapy. Several studies show that aromatherapy can decrease anxiety and improve sleep.
Reducing caffeine is an obvious one, I have cut down over the years and drink more water, but have been drinking a few more mugs since working from home so will refocus on that.
Write it down - One way to handle stress is to write things down. I already do this, you're reading it! Blogging helps me get my thoughts and feelings out, I've always been very open and honest about everything that happens in my life, I'm just always surprised anyone wants to read it.
It's also great to write down things you're grateful for, things that make you smile, that bring joy to your life and sunshine in your world. I find this really helps on days where everything feels like it's all a big pile of poo! There's are always positives you just have to look for them a little harder on days like that.
Oh course an obvious way to reduce stress is to spend time with friends and family which is why so many of us are stressed at this time because we haven't been able too! Use Zoom, it's the next best thing.
Laughter is the best medicine and I truly believe this, I love nothing more than to make others laugh and to laugh together with my tribe.
Yoga, mindfulness, deep breathing, listening to soothing music, spending time with your pets, spending time in nature. Find what works for you because we all get stressed at time.
After saying all that, I'm feeling pretty chilled this morning, I'm about to have a shower, then gonna walk Alfie before it gets too hot - please don't walk your dogs in the mid day sun, I drove past a lady yesterday, it was much too hot by then.
Here's to a delicious day,
Have a good one, hope to see some of you on my virtual workshop 5.30pm (link in Wolverhampton connect group on WW app)
Mwah, luv ya
