Feeling more like me
One thing I've learnt lately is that it pays to be honest. I can write post after post about skincare, and while this interests me, it's the post in which I've laid my soul bare (to a degree) that seems to get you guys reading. And do you know, that's a good feeling. We bloggers would be lying if we said we didn't get enjoyment from seeing people leave comments, but it's the fact that you chose to leave me words of encouragement on those harder to write posts that makes me truly appreciative. That's when I needed it most, and that's when the blogging community closed ranks and offered its support....which is exactly what I love about it.
That in part is why I'm feeling more positive about blogging, and thus more positive in general. I de-cluttered my desk, did some serious organising and for the first time in ages sat down to write properly. It felt productive and it felt good.
I've also been tackling my bad eating habits. I wouldn't say I'm managing to eat clean just yet, but with the help of the MyFitnessPal app and some of my besties I'm feeling much more motivated. I feel like when I was low I just couldn't find it in me to control my eating and make sensible choices. I know it's easy to point the finger and find reasons for eating all. of. the. chocolate (I wish I was joking!) but it really did feel like a downward spiral with no way out. I've lost a bit of weight though, so fingers crossed I'm back on track.
Here's to good days....let's hope there's plenty more of them.
