9th – 15th April

This page is mostly to help me focus and track what I eat and do in a week, it allows me to keep motivated and is somewhat of a diary. If you are interested here it is.

Mindfulness

Honestly what a shit week, I have had a really hard time all across the board, work has been difficult, family have been ill and my mental state is not were it should have been, I’ve had to rush to fit in my runs and it just seems like everything has been out of rhythm. I’ve really tried to stay positive and healthy but my age old demons reared their ugly heads and I caved. I missed two runs and ate some chocolate and ice cream, and you know what? That’s ok. I am not punishing myself for feeling bad or for having something that might not be too good for me. Life has been shit this week and I can admit it. It is ok to feel like shit, it is ok to admit when you just need a sofa day to contemplate everything that is going on. It’s ok to cry and scream and show that you are frustrated with how the week has gone. What is not ok is bottling all of that up, trying to put on a brave face only to have all of this frustration to come out eventually in a more unhealthy manner. I am glad that I have dealt with what has happened this week in whatever way it has manifested because I am not allowing all of the shit to haunt me. I am putting one foot forward and saying next week will be better.
