Aaaand Relax.


My job is pretty fast paced and high pressure, this leads to me being very stressed! I work from 6am until around 3pm, this means 5am alarms to look forward to everyday. Usually when I come in from work at about 3pm I sit on the sofa and don't move until about 7.30pm when I drag myself into the shower and then it's suddenly 9pm and I'm ready to get into bed ready for my 5am alarm. An evening disappeared in the blink of an eye.

But today, I came in from work and went straight back out to the gym and did a 25 min run. Then I came back, jumped straight in the shower and by the time I was drying my hair it wasn't even 4pm! This left me the whole afternoon and evening to do what I wanted and I feel completely energised by my gym session! I've managed to take multiple blog photos, watch some TV, cook dinner, catch up with friends I haven't chatted to in a while and write this blog post - all before 7.30pm. I'm going to try really hard to be more active when I get home from work else it can all get a bit depressing. I was getting into a rut where I felt like I just went to work and watched TV, not fun at all. I live in the middle of a city centre so there are endless things for me to do, even if it is just to grab a coffee and do some window shopping!

Plans for the rest of tonight are to drink endless cups of tea and watch Frozen (again...)

Hope you're having a good evening

  1. I definitely had a bit of a revelation today and this post is just another sign that's telling me to get up and do something. I've definitely been stuck in a rut too as I've not been able to work for the past 2 months and still my injury isn't healed enough for me to go back, so I'm sitting around (pretty much in bed) all day, going to sleep at 3am getting up at 12pm, eating craply and not even really leaving the house. It's hard because I can't exercise so much right now as it's my knee that's hurt but I do want to try and slowly get out more as I too live right in the town centre! Well done you for your motivation!

    1. aw i'm sorry to hear about your injury! it's so easy to get stuck in a rut, but so hard to get out of it. I've managed to go to the gym straight from work for two days in a row so hopefully i will make myself stick at it! just take a slow walk (don't injure yourself more!!) and get out the house :) xxx

  2. It does no good to let yourself get into a rut love :) Keep pushing and trying new things and making the best of your time. You get the gym when every else is at work - appreciate the quietness! :)

    1. I definitely appreciate the quiet in the gym! it's only a small gym, so it's awful at about 7pm cause almost all the machines are full and I feel under pressure to get off the machines if people are waiting! xx

    It's definitely necessary to make time for yourself especially when you lead such a busy life, the gym is always good for bringing up energy levels!
