I set out this week with the intention of solidifying some good habits in my life and clearing out a lot of junk, mental and physical in my life, ready for my return to work. While admittedly, I spent a lot of time asleep and didn't get as much as I wanted to do this week, I've still achieved a decent amount. No amount of preparation is going to make me feel ready to go to work tomorrow, but I feel like I've done as much as I can.
I've decided to take a different approach to healthy living this week, where instead of focusing on cutting out everything I love from my diet, I focus on adding more good stuff to it instead. This has worked surprisingly well. I'm more than happy to have healthy meals throughout the day knowing that I can have some chocolate buttons or a bit of cake afterwards if they don't satisfy me. While I wanted to become wonderwoman who lives entirely on superfoods, I realise this isn't a realistic scenario for me at all and since adopting my new attitude of eating what I want while actively adding more fruit and veg in as well I've already seen a massive difference in how I feel, both mentally and physically. Long may it continue!
Thinking about it, this week's To Do List was incredibly ambitious so I'm not surprised I didn't really get it done. I did however manage my all important wardrobe clearout which I have been desperate to do for so long. I've finally got rid of all the underwear that just doesn't fit me anymore along with the clothes I know I'm never, ever going to get back into and I feel a lot lighter for it, and excited to start doing outfit posts again.
To my readers, I have certainly not had the kind of week that is worth writing about and interesting to read about, but I've done a lot of internal work on myself and I'm feeling confident that adding work to the mix tomorrow isn't going to affect my recovery journey too much.
Reading: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I am hoping to get this finished tonight so I can then race through the last two ASOIAF books I have left in time for Game of Thrones starting again next month. *dies*
Watching: Better Call Saul, Lilyhammer, Pretty Little Liars - all quality TV!!!!
Listening To: "Hole" radio on Spotify. Full of classics I love!
How has your week been?
