I said I would write a post about my week last week. A week that flew by. I had a great week….but I feel a bit run down after it as I didn’t take enough care of myself regarding nutrition, exercise & drinking enough water etc which caused me a headache. I feel like this run down/sluggish more often when I haven’t taken care of myself. I think we all relate to that. You are what you eat….aaaand I tired sick of being a Pringle.
So what did I get up to the past week?
Monday I went to class. Afterwards I met my friends Celine & Stephanie & a few more in town for a nice cup of tea, I treated myself to one of my favorite pastries. A Danish Whirl! I then went to the gym and done a very light ‘work out‘. Basically what my body is able for. It’s not much… but I know my limits now after years of not knowing how my body copes with Fybromyalgia! I then had a shower followed on by passing out in bed.
Tuesday I went too class. Afterwards I edited my first like ‘official’ vlog “Why Do I Dream Big?” By that I mean I actually thought about a theme for the video. I pottered into town to have dinner with a good friend Stephanie & 2 others and I had such a lovely time. Great conversation, great food, a great time! I headed home at 11, finished editing my video and passed out again at around 1am.
Wednesday I had class. It flew by! I went straight to the gym after. Done my light work out, came home and cooked Pasta with pesto & veg for myself and my boyfriend and we sat and hung out with Rachel. We both went to sleeeeep at 11. I like being in bed at 10/10:30 but it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like.
Thursday I met my friend Celine after class in town, we hung out & basked in the sun. We decided to walk up to hers for a while. I was treated to chocolate cake aaaand a chocolate rice krispie bun. Lucky me! Fiona collected me & we went to Ballybunion, as she had to go look at a pub. I pottered around the beach myself for an hour or so. Headed home and we went for one drink with my friend Rachel in town.
Friday I cycled to cockleshell beach as it was a beautiful day. I met Celine in town. I treated myself to a Subway, for the first time in a long time. We bought more food and pottered up to my house and then it was BBQ time at mine with Celine Chloe and some more. Yum Yum!
Saturday I went to the Gym in the morning. I bought some tasty Kelkin Granola and finally had a healthy breakfast for myself with Soya yogurt & fruit. I went to the beach with Rachel, Celine & Hutch. We stayed for a little while as there were flies all over the beach. I tried to bring us to the beach I went too a lot as a kid….but my direction is terrible and we were at the wrong beach. Woops. We went home to chill in the garden for a few hours before I got a bus out to Bike Fest in Killarney in the evening. It was so chill. I had such a lovely evening there. Lovely weather, cool atmosphere, something nice and different. We went home at 10 and watched a film and I went sleep. Check out my video for it here :
Sunday I went to the Bike fest again. We popped into the Tattoo Convention with my sister’s boyfriend and it was funky! I walked back into town and I got the bus back for 6 o clock. Had a shower and headed over to my boyfriends for the night. We watched The Graham Norton Show and Monsters University.
May as well throw Bank Holiday Monday in as it felt like it was all the one week. I joined Michelle, Gordon & Jerry for breakfast. Jerry and I drove around Ballybunion and we went for a walk. We had more tea with amazing melty cookies with Michelle and Gordon before they headed home. We got’s some food then watched a favorite film of Jerry’s & I. Straight Outta Compton. See it if you haven’t. Fantastic film! He dropped me home after 11. I got my stuff ready for the week ahead and just. Passed out in bed.!
That was my weeeeeek. Basically a play by play. There is so much more I would like to do in a week but… lads it’s mad, time flies doesn’t it?! I hope to have one night to myself more often though. It’s a rarity it happens for people, but honestly it’s something that truly helps me personally. I need that more often to keep my mental health well.
Currently : Loving Life and living it to the full. Woop!
