Journal for a Week

A couple of weeks ago I was lacking inspiration to write and had absolutely no creativity in me whatsoever. I seen a suggestion about journaling every day for a week and thought why the hell not?! I wrote a diary every single day until I was about 15 so I know the benefits it can have. Looking back on these memories make you realise how far you come and can also give you a good laugh at how cringey your old self was.

 

Monday

I wore black skinnys and a paisley pattered blouse today and I don’t know why but my outfit made me feel like I could conquer the world. I absolutely love that feeling more than anything.

It was dark when I woke up this morning. 7.15am and still dark? It’s definitely autumn! IS it just me or is it so much harder to get up in the morning when it’s dark? The morning commute from home to work on the bus was actually alright for a change. I absolutely despise relying on public transport but this morning seemed not too bad! Anxiety was intact which was a nice change.

I had such a busy morning at work as I had been off on annual leave last Thursday and Friday. My inbox was so full, on top of the usual Monday morning unplanned problems that had arisen. Lunch time came and went far too quickly but I managed to relax a bit and read my book whilst munching away on some toast. The afternoon was so busy and in no time it was 5pm.

I went for a run on campus after work. I’ve just started week 8 of couch to 5k. I honestly felt like I couldn’t walk afterwards. Got home about 6.30pm and put on my dinner and had a shower.

I had my dinner whilst watching The Only Way Is Essex – don’t hate me – reality tv lets me escape. I tried to blog but had absolutely no inspiration so called it a night and read The Girl on the Train in bed before turning my lights out at 9.30pm.

Tuesday

Today I wore black cami pants and a burgundy top and again, I felt like today was wonderful. I woke up and got ready for work and decided to walk as it was such a beaut day. Sometimes I feel like a long walk in the morning really sets you up for the rest of the day.

The morning was so bust at work. I sorted lots of stuff out in the office that had been piling up for a while. I went for a run during my lunch hour. I felt like I had progressed from yesterday and it seemed a lot easier than yesterday. I mean, I could actually walk after. I need to start getting faster at my runs though.

I spent the afternoon doing marketing stuff at work so it went so quickly. I walked home from work again and it was lovely.

Got home and did some housework and made the most delish veggie burger for dinner. I practiced some theory for driving for about 45 minutes then caught up with telly. I actually managed to write tonight which felt good considering I’ve seriously been lacking inspiration. I read for an hour then hit the hay. Such an exciting day – i know.

Wednesday

Okay I felt super sleepy today so I wore leggings, a comfy over sized beige top and some little ankle boots to work.

I woke up quite a lot during the night so I found it quite hard to actually get out of bed. I had some Weetabix and a cuppa whilst watching the news. I walked to work again this morning and it’s still dry – yay.

The morning went past so quickly but work is so stressful this week. Everything is happening all at once. I managed to sneak outside for a walk during my lunch hour and found a bench to read. It’s so good to clear my head at lunch when I’m having a busy day.

I walked home and done some chores – housework just never seems to end. Made some spaghetti carbonara for diner, yummmmy. Practiced some theory again and then had a cuppa tea in bed with some chocolate and The Gilmore Girls. I then called it a night and read for an hour. Perfect night to me.

Thursday

Today I wore some salmon coloured trousers and a cosy jumper. See some days when you just want to be cosy and comfy? Today was one of those. I just wanna sleep all day. Today just feels shite. Had a cuppa tea and watched the news and decided to get the bus to work today. I feel so pants about my appearance right now and it bugs me that I’ve not lost even 1lb of weight. Argggh. I’ve had such a good week mentally and I just don’t want to ruin it. I went for a run in my lunch hour and it usually helps to lift my mood but just not today.

I just feel distracted and I have no idea why. The afternoon dragged on and I honestly just wanted to get home.

Had fajitas for dinner. Caught up with last nights bake off then read. Felt so poopy so found it hard to sleep.

Friday

I woke up at 6am and I have no idea why. But Karina is coming tonight, yay! Changed my bed before work and got organised. Feeling a bit better today. Got the bus to work today and the morning was so so busy. Almost finished reading The Girl On the Train at lunchtime.

The afternoon was pretty quiet but I got stuff organised for the Open Day.

So excited that it’s the weekend! Really need it after such a busy week. Got home and Elliot had a glass of wine waiting for me. Best. Flatmate. Ever. The boy knows me too well. Karina arrived about 7pm and we had pizza and chatted. It was so good to catch up. Michael came round to meet Karina which I was so nervous about as he hasn’t met any of my friends from home yet. Sat and had drinks all night and chatted and laughed. Was so good to relax and have fun at the same time.

Saturday

Eughhhh. I woke up at 4am and was sick. And no, it wasn’t the alcohol haha. I think it was my dinner from Thursday night because I had the leftovers for lunch yesterday, and that’s what it felt like, not going into any details. Yuck. Felt much better after anyway which is always good. Wanted a long lie but woke up at 8am. Grim. Had a shower and got ready with Karina. We always take so long when we are together. We went for a walk along to Cambuskenneth Abbey.  Took lots of photos. We then went to the university adn had a wee picnic which was so cute. Karina had to drive home after  so I had a little nap on the couch and watched some telly. Michael came around and we ordered Pizza Hut. Well, at least I thought we did….. Megan, my best friend from childhood turned up at the door with her boyfriend with pizza boxes in hand. Best surprise ever. Michael and her had it planned all week. Was so good to have a catch up. It was also so odd because we have never had a boyfriend at the same time let alone in the same room! Uh, my friends are honestly the best.

Sunday

Woke up earlier than I had hoped but it meant I  could do the ironing and catch up with last nights X Factor whilst Michael slept on. Went and did the weekly food shop and then chilled for the afternoon watching a film. Michael also made us brunch which never happens so it was such a perfect afternoon. We then went to his parents for dinner in the evening and it was so good. So nice to catch up with them and get to know them better.

So there is a glimpse of a week in the life of me which as you can see, is not exciting at all. It’s made me realise I need to do more stuff during the week after work. Has anyone got any suggestions of how I can spend my evenings?

 

Much love,

Louise
