Bluergh

You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach? That Monday feeling? Well it’s returned. I’m currently lying in bed after having a few days off really hating the idea of heading into the office tomorrow.

On a positive, I’ve been doing some research into my business idea this weekend and even started to put a little bit of money away to buy tools. I’ve invested a little bit of my salary this month and with the help of people in Facebook groups, online videos and research I’ve put together a wish list of the basics I need to kick-start my business project. It might take me a few months to get everything from the list (it is quite extensive) but I should be able to start practising in a few weeks. All baby steps to do something I love, rather than continue to be treated like shit.

I shall keep you updated on progress and give you a sneak peek into my purchases when they arrive.

For now though I must try and remain as positive as I can.

Motivation

I’m glad to see the back of this week. Things are going on in work that I’m not 100% happy with. People making decisions about my future without reaching out to me first. The people around me that I thought were loyal turn out to be anything but that and I just don’t think I can work in that kind of environment anymore.

On a positive, it’s the weekend. I was hoping to book a cottage and get away, last minute, but that hasn’t gone to plan. Our daughter didn’t get home from school until 5pm and C didn’t get home until 7pm, so by the time people pack and we get on the road it would be midnight before we arrive and that’s just not worth it. Might try and book something for next weekend.

Had an email this morning that our gym is going to be open 24/7, which is brilliant news! I said that likes it’s a place I frequent often when in fact I’ve held my membership for 2 years and haven’t been in over a year now. Yep, I’m one of those people.

If you’re a regular gym-goer, what times do you normally hit the gym floor? How do you keep yourself motivated? I’ve been thinking of booking a Personal Trainer for a few sessions, but I always feel quite intimidated by them.

Monday, new start!

So this is it, the very last time I say I’ll start a ‘New Me’ tomorrow. Tomorrow IS the New Me!

No longer will I be chauffeured to and from work. I have bought my weekly bus pass, my Fitbit Versa will be fully charged, primed and ready for the week ahead. I have made plans for one of my girlfriend’s to attend our local ParkRun this coming Saturday (with our kids in tow) and even though we may only be able to walk it, we are still doing something, right?

I’m spending today working on a food menu for the week and plan to do my Ocado shop shortly. I’m also planning on hitting bed by 10.30pm – Lights out and waking up at 6am for a 30min workout and breakfast with a view of hitting the gym 5 times a week.

I’m determined to do this!
