Okay, so I ran a twitter poll and lots of my followers said that they would quite enjoy a monthly update post about what’s been going on in my life each month. I had no idea what to call these posts and because I’m not the most creative, I’m gonna go with ‘Louise Chatters’ since these posts will be updates about my life and will be quite chatty and informal. Some months, probably most moths, not much will have happened at all, but I feel like these posts will also allow me to look back on my year and see what was happening.
January has been alright actually. Definitely more ups than downs which is always superb. I really struggled getting back into the routine of work. But then after the first week it was just normal. I felt like the weeks were whizzing past before Christmas and now that it’s all over, the weeks are going SO slowly. But they’re still so busy. I absolutely love my job but I love weekends so much more because that means I can spend time with my nearest and dearest.
I was about three months late to the game but I went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and it was AMAZING. I had low expectations and oh my lord, I couldn’t have been more wrong about the film. I’m definitely going to try and get to the cinema more often because its such a good escape.
So, I set myself a goal of ‘losing the chub.’ I’m noticing such a difference already which is always good. I always have so many set backs but I’m now finished my third week since changing my lifestyle and tomorrow is weigh in day! I’ve lost 8lbs so far which I’m v chuffed about. I also went to my first spin class which was SO good. I was dreading it so much but I knew it would be so worth it. I’ve never been to an exercise class before because it gives me the absolute fear but I did it! I managed to look past exercising with other people and I won’t be looking back. My second week of spin was not as hard – I worked myself harder but never had sore legs for days after like the first.
I decided to try going veggie for a week of every month. Obviously it’s only January but I honestly felt so great after my week of being meat free. I’ve been back on meat for 1 week now and I kinda feel rubbish compared to without it. So I think I’m going to try and cut a lot more meat out which hopefully makes me feel great.
So, I just got a letter through the door with a date for starting my new therapy with a new Dr. NERVOUS. I find it so hard to open up to new people but if I want to help myself, then I’m going to have to suck it up and get on with things. My Dr has warned me at how intense it’s going to be because the sessions are going to be weekly and it’s a big investment for the NHS.
I got to catch up with friends this month which made me super happy as we never see each other now we have graduated. Had such a good night with these guys in the middle of the month. I also celebrated a friends birthday at the end of the month which was a great night! So my social life has been pretty good haha!
I’ve also been working on my blogging goals that I set myself too! This month I became louisechatters.com! YAY. I also reached 1450 Twitter followers and 340 Instagram followers so I’m beginning to make a dent in my goals for the year!
What have you been upto this month?
