It’s March already! Yesterday I went for a nice walk with a friend of mine which took about an hour. The wind was pretty biting and if it had just been about half as powerful as it was the weather would have been absolutely perfect. We found a horse and fed it some grass. I often forget I live so close to the countryside. I went to a football match in the afternoon and then just relaxed for the rest of the day. It was a quiet but good day.
I am trying to get back to my strong discipline of last year when it comes to my food. Since I split up with my ex I have found the motivation, the ‘why’, more difficult to find. I am absolutely determined, however, to get things back on track. I’ve gained a little bit of weight and I want to get back to where I was. This includes more regular visits to the gym and a keener focus on my health and well-being.
Next week Neil is moving back to the north-east to start a new job. I’m really pleased for him because I know that he hates living in Edinburgh. Now that he lives a lot closer we are going to try and get the photography business into shape. He will be working full-time hours but our plan is to continue marketing the business, arrange and execute more local photo shoots together and start a photography training academy. We will also be finalising our travel arrangements for our first wedding which takes place in May.
I have also been reflecting on what I do with my spare time. I want to go out for more exercise and take advantage of the time that I have to do so. This will also serve the dual purpose of reducing the amount of money I spend, thus meaning I can sustain my lifestyle for longer. Sometimes I wake up and think, for example, “I want to go to Willington” or “I want to go to Crook”. I’m quite happy to just hop in the car these visits and just enjoy the feeling of being there. It doesn’t mean that I have to buy a fried breakfast or chocolate every time I do visit these places though. Good decisions is key and it’s no longer acceptable to justify bad decisions because I feel depressed or under the weather.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
