Sunday 23rd March – Drama, loss & the return of bad habits

Hello and huge apologies for the lack of posts. I have had a pretty traumatic week. It certainly didn’t go the way I had hoped. It was my birthday last Sunday, but it feels like it was months ago already. 

We had 2 big events on at work this week that I’ve been planning and organising for months, so that was really playing on my mind. But on Tuesday I got a phone call from my Mum to say my Nana had had a stroke. My Nana lives in Ireland so it’s difficult to know what to do in terms of travelling over. I spoke to my Dad (as it is his Mum) and we decided the best thing to do was wait for updates from family before doing anything. So, on top of everything that was happening at work, I spent the week waiting for updates from Mum and Dad on my Nana’s condition. 
Sadly, my Nana passed away yesterday. Her funeral is tomorrow. Things move very quickly in Ireland! 

So, not the best week. I have reverted to ‘eating my feelings/stress’ this week, and haven’t been to the gym. so currently feel horrible. My skin has also massively flared up on both sides of my neck. It’s really sore and the spots just won’t go away. I’m at a total loss as to what to do about it as nothing seems to be working. I might have to go to the doctor as it’s really starting to get me down. I’m too old to have this problem. 

I am actually looking forward to getting back in the gym on Wednesday and having a really good chat with Chris, my fantastic and very supportive personal trainer. I want to see if there’s any way to control my skin problems naturally. I also need to talk food with him as I have gone completely off the rails this week, not intentionally, but not good either. 

Sorry this is such a downer of a blog post. I need to get back on the positive train ASAP. I feel like I’ve completely lost my ‘mojo’. If you see it please send it back!
