My Week #65 – Getting Cozy

*Fuzzy socks! *Autumn loveliness

Went to see little Adam’s play – really good! *Pretty sunset

Time for the cliche omg it’s autumn post.

There was such a drop in temperature this week that I had to dig out the fuzzy socks! It’s been a week of hot drinks and cozy blankets and the cats have been even cuddlier than usual. I do love this time of year but I haven’t had much time to enjoy it so far. I’ve had a bit of a bad mental health week and it’s really affected me. I think it was due to not having much work on my hands but I’ve picked up a couple of new projects and feel that things are turning around so I’m trying to get into a new routine.

I’ve started painting again too which I really missed but didn’t realise until I had a sudden urge to pick up a paint brush at 3am the other night during a bought of insomnia. I didn’t pick it up until the next day but my love was reignited for it. I learned that I don’t like acrylics and I still can’t abstract paint but I’m still good at watercolours! It’s nice having a hobby that doesn’t involve a screen.

I’m taking a break with Slimming World

It’s a combination of trying to save some money and the fact that I don’t seem to be focused enough on losing weight. So it’s like I’m throwing money out the window. I haven’t made any progress at all this year. The last week got me thinking that I need to take a step back and see how I do alone. I’m still sticking to plan as much as I can but I feel like I’ve been depriving myself recently which has lead to binging and thats not what Slimming World is about.

I’m not planning on jumping off the deep end into takeaways and junk food – just sticking to the healthy home cooked I usually make. And now that I’m going to the gym I feel like I have something new to focus on. I’m overall happy with my size, I just want to tone up and see how I do.

Wish me luck! Have you ever found yourself in a similar position to this?

    It’s hard when you’re not in a work routine, it must be weird having just finished all the wedding/honeymoon stuff too. Glad work is picking up now though ๐Ÿ™‚
