Summer Bod Ready


Well where to begin? It all started so well in January, I was going to be a good stone lighter by the time I went on holiday [to cure my writers block]- lol good joke. So since Christmas I been working up to this 'big holiday' [even though I will probably have another hundred 'big holidays' in my lifetime]. I had a good few months battling with diets, extreme exercise and the list just goes on and on. I always get into this horrible cycle and end up eating a whole tub of Ben and Jerry's in the space of 3 minutes whilst feeling terribly guilty for the next 3 months. I am the 2018 Bridget Jones. 

However, after having numerous ups and downs throughout these few months, I have come to realise that having a summer bod is not the be all and end all. Of course, I don't want to look like a beached whale in my bikini but there is so much more to life. Am I right or am I right?

Firstly, I have a working body, lets be grateful and leave that to that. Secondly, having a balanced diet should be a lifestyle, I personally really enjoy eating healthily and feel so good when I do it. I shouldn't not allow myself treats now and again because I'm going to be honest, when I do this I just look for the nearest supermarket and end up buying said thing in bulk. Silly I know but once I tell myself I can't have something, I just want it more. Thirdly, exercise has many different benefits. As well as feeling good and toning up etc, it is a massive stress relief and I believe really helps me focus in my job.

So lets just chill - as there is more things to worry about than making sure we are in shape for the summer months [and lets not forget... it will be winter before we know it!]

A Writers Block: Part One


So this has happened before and its happening again. I have serious writers block - which you may have already figured from my last post which was basically a collection of my day dreams.

The desire to write on my blog has been frantically depreciating which is due to a number of things but mainly because my spare time has also depreciated. I still read hundreds of blogs a week, write down ideas and map out my next few blogs but putting pen to paper [or getting me near a computer outside of my working hours] has been extremely hard. 

So my amazing plan is... I am going to take a bit of time out, go on holiday and sit back down in a few weeks time - wish me luck!

Death by travel bug


I know that my last post was about the gruelling job search. But recently I have been struck down with the travel bug and I just can't stop thinking about it.

I have been lucky enough to have visited quite a few places within my lifetime and I did a small stint in Australia, but, I am just so keen to start exploring further. I would absolutely love to do the classic, six months in the sunset but I am also so focused on my career that it really is a double edged sword.

There are just so many places to go and now, Facebook seems to be a constant scroll of people away on their travels visiting destinations which are currently only in my dreams. I just wish I had the guts to drop everything and head off into the sunset, but Alas, I do not.

So what is on my hit list? Pretty much everywhere but to name few; India, New Zealand, the Philippines, Japan, Fiji and the list goes on. I know these are obviously long-haul flights, but I am also keen to discover more of the European cities that are literally on our doorstep. 

This was a super short post just to get my day dreaming written down, maybe this will make it more real and achievable now? Does anyone have any destinations that are worth visiting?
