It’s been three weeks of 12WBT so far. Week 1 and 2 were quite good {even though I didn’t update Week 2}. At the end of Week 2, I went away for the weekend for a wedding down the south coast. That meant a bit of indulgence but luckily, it didn’t do as much damage as I’d feared. I only gained 100 grams from Week 2. I sort of lost my mojo at the start of Week 3 due to…

10 things that made me happy {Week 29}

things that made me happy

It’s been one crazy week. Personally, I’ve been struggling with some decisions. Professionally, I’ve had a suicidal client that’s taken up a lot of my time {they are in a safe place now}. I’m tired and exhausted and feel like I need to switch off but can’t. I haven’t been able to write much this week even though I’ve wanted to. But, this isn’t a time to whinge and moan. It’s time to look at the things that made me…

A letter to Hermione Granger #FridayReflections

Dear Hermione, It’s hard to believe you became a known entity twenty years ago. I, however, was only introduced to you four years after that. At first, I’ll admit I didn’t particularly like you. After all, no one likes a know-it-all. But then, you slowly grew on me. You actually began to remind me of myself at a younger age. You see, when I was in primary school, I was a bossy little know-it-all. I would raise my hand to answer questions…

I Wonder Introspection

On death and dying #FridayReflections

February 17, 2017

I don’t always think about dying. At least not my own death. As an anxious person, I have often worried about the death of loved ones, more specifically, my family. I have had nightmares as a child wondering how I’d cope. Now, while I no longer have nightmares, I guess the inevitability of it all is always there in my subconscious. However, my own death? That’s not something I worry about too often. It’s not because I think I won’t die…

On Monday the 6th of February, I officially commenced my 12WBT journey. I had prepared my meals on the Saturday {as I was going to be out of the house on Sunday} and was ready and raring to go at 4:50 on Monday morning. Monday and Wednesday were cardio days, Tuesday and Thursday were all about strength-training. On Friday, exercise was focussed on the core and flexibility and finally Saturday was a super-circuit. With my meals, while I didn’t take…
