Welcome to December!

Yasss! 

Welcome to December! ❄⛄
Such a lovey time of the year, call me crazy but I always loved the hustle and bustle of December! Especially when we had our family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ shop, which, in its time, turned out to be one of the most popular in the town! 

It was something special when all the family worked together as a team to serve customers as efficiently as possible! πŸ‘›πŸ›
That feeling when you’ve queued in the shops on black Friday πŸ›, you trawled the internet for the best deal on Cyber Monday πŸ’», when you can’t decide whether to treat yourself to a fresh Christmas tree πŸŽ„ and then like every year – decide that you could actually spend that money on the food instead 🍽 and you get the artificial tree out of the loft. 

Next, you sit for an hour or more untangling the lights πŸ’‘ for the tree! 

Static shocks ⚑️whenever you touch anything after handling all the tinsel, that you eventually threw on your tree πŸŽ„

Try not to get stressed 😠 when you end up sticking all your fingers together, as you bravely start wrapping the presents ready🎁 for Santa’s πŸŽ… elves to collect. You’ve made it this far with your sanity intact, keep it that way just a little longer!
Lets skip through any more dramas that may try to own you and fast forward to sitting with the family πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦, surrounded by all that wrapping papehandd invisible sticky tape that got tree so stressed 😑. Now it lies on the floor, torn and screwed up! You got your own back on it! You eventually won that war! πŸ’ͺ
Laughter and love πŸ’— all around you as you sit at the table with your loved ones, a glass of your favourite beverage in your hand 🍷 and the bottle 🍾 at your side! Take a breath and feel proud! πŸ‘Œ
Enjoy this time, don’t let the madness of this month ruin the best time that is still to come!
Happy December everyone! πŸ™πŸ’š

World MS Day 2016

When I was diagnosed with MS I never believed I would feel as happy as I do 6 years on!
I feel proud of who I’ve become & who I am becoming!
Baby steps, many more to take and lessons to learn along the way!
I really am loving this journey even as hard as it is!
Happy World MS Day 2016!

Thank you to all my friends & family for your support & inspiration!

Also thanks to:
Mel Wells – my food & well being influencer
Louise Aviles – my yoga instructor, yoga influencer & good friend

Proud!

Today I did my first Yoga class and I absolutely loved it! Let me just take this in for a moment!

Yep! Proud!
I’ve wanted to try yoga ever since I started Pilates! My physio always said stick with Pilates, keep the movements fluid. Why!!! I loved it!

Yes, definitely proud!
I stepped out of the box, out of my comfort zone, made the move, did something entirely different to my normal!

I have to say I loved it that much that I booked another 5 sessions!

Thank you Louise for your patience with me & for agreeing to not only have a selfie with Myles the MS-UK mascot but to agreeing to take progress pictures of me for the next 5 (or more!) sessions!

Thank you to Rach for passing Louise’s details on to me as well!

And thank you to everyone in my life for believing in me enough for me to believe in myself!

I have now copied this speech as it’ll do nicely should I ever win an Oscar! ;)😂😂😂

I love Fight Klub!

Brilliant Fight Klub last night with Hannah Bailey!

Had this T-shirt with me so whilst I finished the class early as usual to try my best to get my temperature down, I thought it most appropriate to hold this top up during the gruelling abs section!
Everyone seemed to appreciate it πŸ˜„

Btw, I wish I could take part in the abs section but I have to use that time to cool down!
My internal thermometer is fooked thanks to my MS! When I over heat it triggers all of my symptoms, meaning I can hardly walk, balance, see, hear, talk, oh the list goes on!
At least once my temperature is at a safe level my symptoms subside and I just walk and talk like I’m pissed!

I’m so pleased I’ve found something that helps to keep me cool!
*the t-shirt doesn’t keep me cool, just to clear that up! It’s a cloth that is extremely cold when wet! For those that attend fight klub or any other cardio classes I attend, it’s that pink cloth I always have either around my neck or over my head like a nun! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ*

I LOVE FIGHT KLUB!
