This past week has been a struggle for me . I’m open about my battles with mental health and when my days are low. It’s not been the best week and I just can’t seem to shift it .

I turn 33 on Monday and I’m feeling all kinds of emotions about that too.I think it’s a time of a lot going on in my head - does anyone else get like that?

Work has been a little quiet and that always worries me . Going from a good paid job to self employment is a complete change and something that I am still getting use to. Work can be amazing one week and then dry like the Sahara dessert the next , currently dry! 

I have got a good paid job opportunity  for the end of next week so I am trying to stay positive. Staying positive is something I am really trying to do, and looking on the brighter side of things when  things seem like rubbish.

So this week I’ve had no paid work - so I’ve counted my blessings and got some reviews out that had been overdue. It’s the little things and the positive mindset that I am trying to teach myself.

It can be hard when you suffer with poor mental health . Sometimes that black cloud just can’t be shifted and it’s horrible .

I have been binging a bit this week too/ the dreaded biscuit tin has been calling my name. That doesn’t help me , so I’ve stuck to a meal plan for next week, we are on holiday next week in Hemsby so I’m definitely going to have the odd ice cream and seafood but sticking to three healthy meals a day really keeps me feeling good.

Fallen off the slimming world wagon again! 

I also started the 30 day shred dvd again by Jillian- if you have followed me for a while then you will know I have done this dvd many times and it really does leave you feeling super good and sets you up your day if you do it first thing. Slightly achy but I’m so unfit , that’ll teach me :) 

I always feel better when I write down how I’m feeling . That’s how this whole blog started , and now  it’s my job. Crazy isn’t it?. I’m going to run a bath and have a soak before bed .

I’m hoping for an earlier night . My brain just doesn’t want to switch off at the minute , and 2am rolls by and I’m still here thinking about how I’d survive a zombie apocalypse- please tell me you do that too! :)

Hope you all are having a lovely Easter break whatever you are doing and sorry for the rant ! :) X


  1. Sorry to hear that you've had a bit of a rough week. I hope your holiday in Hemsby perks you up - and Happy Birthday for Monday

  2. Sorry to hear that you are struggling. It is also quiet on the work from here but I am putting that down to Easter. My weightloss has stalled and am seriously thinking of joining WW

  3. Hope you're feeling better soon. It always helps me to write down my feelings too. Hope you get a bit more work in soon too

  4. I hear you, Writing it down has become therapy for me. Hope you feel better soon.

  5. Sorry to hear you’re not doing well. I feel writing about my feelings and frustrations sometimes takes some weight off of me. As for slimming world, I’m the same I can hardly say I was on the wagon to actually fall off.

  6. I think everyone has ups and downs, be it with their mental health and especially in the self employed arena. Keep working at at, and I hope some paid opportunities come your way soon

  7. Don't apologise for ranting. We all need to rant every now and then. It will get better.

  8. I really hope you feel better soon. There are really highs and lows. Just keep the positivity.
