Fresh Start

Today is Fresh Start Day! It’s only the 6,304th Fresh Start Day of my life, lol. But one must never stop trying to better one’s life!

Morning

Woke up with painful cramps and thought I wasn’t going to be able to do my morning habits, especially yoga. So much for Fresh Start Day! But, luckily, the pain subsided and I was able to get up and tick all my morning habits boxes. Yay to small victories!

Afternoon

Started logging iron and calcium today. Haven’t found a good app that will break down my minerals intake so I’m doing it manually using Google. It is super tedious googling every single item I eat and calculating the numbers for my serving sizes, but I love filling in my new health tracker. I just love my bujo so much!

Night

Today went well. Ticked all boxes. Tonight I start a new habit of no screens (except Kindle) 2 hours before sleeping. That terrifies me so I’ve never attempted it until now. It is going to be very inconvenient but I have to try to give myself a better chance at sleeping well.

Gratitude

Today I am grateful for the enjoyment of reading. It is so rare for me to be able to find books these days I can get engrossed in!

Sorted!

I feel good today! I spent all day making my trackers and planners for September so now I feel like I can be organised and productive. I had felt so lost all week!

There are new things I’ll be tracking and new things always make me so excited! I have a new health tracker and I’ll have to move my daily food logs there, meaning my daily pages will have more space for my nonsense! Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

I asked on Insta whether I should squeeze two days’ worth of my writings into one page, or stick with one day a page. 67% voted for one day a page. Well, thank you, people. I guess I should be happy people want more, lol.

Gratitude

Today I’m grateful for fresh starts!

FUN

One of the challenges in Fandom to Fitness this week: Take a photo doing a front kick! That was really fun and made me miss all the martial arts lessons I took in the past!

Poster Boy

Piers is surely the poster boy for British politeness. Today he drove me to my homeopathy appointment, 30m there and 30 back, with an hour wait. When we got back, I thanked him.

His response: “Thank you!”

“Why are you thanking me?” I asked.

“Er…,” he said, “For thanking me!”

Racer Boy

Piers drove Olive instead of Miyako today because it was sunny and he wanted the top down. I don’t like going in Olive because her seats are hard and Piers drives like he’s in the Formula One. He denies it. But, then, Fitbit logged our 2 trips as “outdoor biking”, lolololol. That never happens in Miyako so… LOL.

 

Olive (TVR Tuscan) and Miyako (Aston Martin Vantage)

 

Birdie Poo

A little green bird flew into the conservatory today! That’s never happened in the year we’ve lived here. I wish we could keep it but Piers said it will shit everywhere, so he gently shooed it outside. Aww!

(Note: It did poo onto a chair before it flew outside again!)

Gratitude

I’m grateful for a nice day today filled with happy things.

Blurry Week

I’ve been in a bit of a fog all week, what with trying to push away trauma and depression and racing against time to catch up on my bujo pages. I mean, the latter helps the former quite a lot since it distracts my mind, but it also makes the days pass by in a blur, like I’m not living in the real world.

This morning, I received a text reminder from Ocado for the groceries arriving tomorrow. I was shocked. How is tomorrow Saturday already! In my head, I’m still living in Wednesday or something.

Gratitude

I’m grateful for all my art and craft books and all my craft materials even though I have no time to use them!

Happy Walks

The good news is that I’m enjoying my daily walks more, this week. FB group steps challenge is lower at 60k steps but when I hit my daily target, I don’t want to stop! I can’t figure out why. I can’t imagine this will last but I”m just enjoying it while it’s here!

Emotional Eating

Nooooo! I realised that I’ve started emotional eating again! I did so well the last 2 months wrt eating healthy portions but it’s gone downhill a bit now. Because I’ve adamantly refused to give in to my sugar cravings and yet they persist, I have compromised by eating much bigger portions of my meals just to prolong the duration of eating. I feel so comforted while eating but once all the food is gone, I feel horrid and lost. What is this?! Begone, foul demon of wilful eating!!

Sad

I can’t really afford the time to make daily pages but it makes me sad to have to reduce them. So many things in life make me sad.

Gratitude

I’m grateful to have clean water to drink.

Mouldy Mushrooms

Had to throw away 12 portobello mushrooms (left over from the BBQ) because they were all mouldy because there wasn’t room in the fridge for them. Poor mushrooms. They didn’t get to fulfil their destiny.
