A week or so ago, I wrote my first blog post of 2016 (and my first for quite some time)
about how I was getting back on track and was determined to keep up with the blogging. Then nothing. Well, nothing blog-wise anyway.
Although I may have been quiet on the blog front, I am pleased to say that I have been keeping my new year’s promises to myself so far.
I’ve promised myself that I’m going to be kinder to myself. In that vein, over the couple of weeks I have been for a makeover (although I’ve yet to practise applying my new make-up for myself – here’s hoping I don’t look like Coco The Clown!), enjoyed a bath with one of my favourite Lush products and spent a little bit of time playing The Sims – a game I love but usually can’t find time for.
I’ve also promised to prioritise things that are important to me and so I’ve found myself making sure that I leave work a bit earlier on the nights I’ve arranged to go running, convincing my husband that it wasn’t too late or too wet for us to go running last Tuesday evening and choosing a healthier option when we were unexpectedly invited out for a curry last Friday.
In conclusion, I wouldn’t say I’m made a lightening start to the year, but I’ve made some small changes that I’m hoping to be able to keep up and build on. So far I’m winning at the scales too: I’m two weigh-ins in to 2016 and I’ve lost 2.5lb. Again, it’s nothing incredible, but slow and steady wins the race.
This week, I want to try to prioritise my blog. I’ve got a couple of posts that I’m looking forward to sharing with you so watch this space (hopefully you won’t be watching for so long this time!).
Thanks for reading,
What are you doing to be kinder to yourself this year?
