I’m writing this while on a very delayed train journey from my North Wales (Bangor aye) roots to my now home Cardiff.
As much as a hate being delayed (I should have arrived home about 40 minutes ago, but I think I have about an hour and a half to go) it’s the perfect opportunity to get me blogging again.
I’ve been really feeling the ‘not enough hours in the day’ pain of late and it’s the ‘me’ time that seems to be baring the brunt of it. That doesn’t mean I’ve not been getting any enjoyment from life, but my time is being sucked up by the more practical & grown up duties life throws at us like washing up & picking up dog shit!
I could go into detail about the ups & downs of buying a house and the challenges a new puppy brings, but that would most definitely end up in this post being very dull as I imagine Cheryl Coles autobiography to be (Oh I love me dogs), which would result in me wasting even more of my precious time, so instead I’m going to focus on the things I am going to bring back into my life, so that I feel I’m controlling my day instead of it controlling (or so it feels) me.
Now, on the 23rd of November I’ll be entering the final year of my 20’s, so what better way to celebrate than with a half marathon time of 1:59:59. This is the aim anyway, so this month I really need to go hard on the training – I’ve recently joined a really lovely running club so I now need to fully immerse myself into their different sessions & I need to start dragging myself out into the wild before work so that before the daily grind grabs me by the throat, I’ve already done something for me.
Yoga is another thing I need to get back into. I miss trying to be a pigeon and I love the clarity a bit of yoga can bring to my over active mind, I think twice a week is a realistic aim – all I need is my yoga studio app, I love it.
Still firmly on the subject of fitness – I’m studying (aka trying to, but failing badly) online through Fitness Industry Education to be a Personal Trainer. I’m really interested in the body health & fitness wise, but I’m never awake enough after work to take any new information in. Now this needs to take priority for at least a few hours a week. Any help with this – VERY WELCOME!
Blogging. Now this post is a really good start. There is something really satisfying about sharing my experiences & thoughts, commenting on fashion like the guru that I am and harping on about life with the hope it inspires (doubtful), intrigues or just amuses someone for a short time, I also think it’s a great tool to document stages in life as I do tend to forget a lot and it’s fun reading back over old posts that often have the power to take you right back to that time, so I’m also bringing blogging back (you other bloggers don’t know act…) …
I’ll leave it there for now, because I’ve got to stop somewhere and start something else.
