January Blues

It’s that time of year again. Where our wallets are lighter but our tummies not so 🙁

Whilst my new vegan lifestyle has managed to help me reign in a little on the over the holiday period, I am certainly not without my gains. There is a whole world of vegan junk food, along with “accidentally vegan” products like some pot noodles, oreos and much more, it is very easy to eat like crap. Oh and I did, do, will. Yeah lets not deny it!

But I want to do something about it. I have always had incredible issues with my body image and self esteem, and whilst I am the lightest I have been in six years, I still have a fair way to go before I am “healthy”.

So the blues are well and truly settled in at the moment. The days are dark and gloomy. Purse strings are tight and so is my waistline.

Well as per the cliche, a gym membership is in order! Unfortunately I also suffer with a condition called Fibromyalgia, which means any given day I could wake up in a world of pain or have weeks of endless fatigue for absolutely no reason other than that is just the way it is for me, and millions like me. But I will try, I want to and need to.

I’ve also found out about a local aerial hoop class which I have always wanted to try, so I am super excited about this!

Exams are creeping up too, so added stress there to burn away on the treadmill.

I also need to get writing more, this post itself is proof of my inability to provide flowing content at the moment (and I apologise, stick with me ok?) so more practice and more determination needed all around.


Just gotta keep swimming right?
