I have been in a bad mood all afternoon and I recognise that it has not made me the most pleasant person to be around. The world seems to have frustrated me every time I attempted to interact with it and so in response I spent most of the day inside choosing Netflix as my… Continue reading Can you understand?
Here is what I learnt today: The reality of between what I think is happening to my body in regards to weight is completely different to what is actually happening.

It is easy to get frustrated with ourselves because the process… Continue reading What are YOUR motivations?
I got really distracted by chocolate cake today. It was someone’s birthday at work and it took so much effort to not burst into tears in the middle of my meeting because I knew there was no way I was ever going to let myself have any.

Exams are over which is a relief and whatever the outcome, they will be what they will be and I am now powerless to do anything about them. I worked my… Continue reading Redirecting the focus (again)
