All the yums!

The difference in my lunch choice when I don’t go to Yoga, Pilates classes in the morning is immense! 

My fatigue is still bad but far less than when I’ve exercised! 

I can think a little clearer & listen to my body, so I can make better choices of what to have & what my body wants! 
I know its appears to be a simple salad, but nothing is simple when you have 2 chronic illnesses! 

I could have had some mixed beans with my salad but unfortunately, I have only just remembered them & my lunch is now in my tummy! πŸ€—
This lunch is nothing compared to when my DebbieRahRah is here, but it makes me proud to know that I created it on my own!

My agony weekend *Saturday*

Yoga 1-1 cancelled! Sleep to catch up on! 

Slept well into lunch time!…
Well, I not only made it from the bed to the sofa, but I made a smoothie in between! 
At least this isn’t causing me any pain yet! 

The first little bit of goodness inside me since 6am yesterday! That’s excluding the jelly I managed to eat with no pain! πŸ˜‰
Hard to believe that MS can cause so much havoc to the body! 
I shall be resting now, need to be in optimum condition in preparation for my birthday weekend that starts on Thursday! πŸŽ‰

Picture is my own, as are the words used!

Day 7 and the final day of the #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells…’Celebrate yourself’

Day 7 and the final day of the #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells…

‘Celebrate yourself’
So late doing this one because, well, its been a tough old day! I got through it though! #proud
“Im celebrating myself because…”
I am strong, determined, kind, generous, thoughtful, loving, positive, passionate, caring, inspiring, driven, but most of all, I AM BEAUTIFUL! INSIDE AND OUT! πŸ’—
I have absolutely loved doing this again & have learnt even more about myself than last time I did it! 

Its been super great to have the support of all the other goddesses also taking part in this challenge! 
If you don’t already practice self love, I thoroughly recommend it! We all should love ourselves more! #preach
Thank you once again Melissa Wells for the wonderful opportunity to reflect on who I truly am once more! Look forward to the next one!

​Day 6 #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells’Accept compliments’

​Day 6 #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells

‘Accept compliments’
The first challenge today is to finish this sentence…

‘My favourite compliment to receive is…’

… My strength and growth on my continuing journey of bettering myself! 

Its also lovely to know that I am inspiring others as well! 
Today’s compliment comes courtesy of my beautiful​ yoga teacher & health coach @louiseavilesyoga

Thank you Louise! 
It has also come at a vital time & links in with the video part of day 6, ‘Training your inner self talk’ 

I must start trusting my yoga journey, stay patient and stop comparing because this is my journey, no one else’s! 

Day 1 of Mel Wells 7 day self love challenge

Ok so, its the first day of the #7daysofselflove with Mel Wells 

Today’s challenge is to share one thing that you love about yourself!
Before my MS diagnosis, I was in a really confident state of mind and felt comfortable saying “I love every part of my being”

Since then I’ve always felt uncomfortable saying I love any part of myself other than my smile and my soul! 
I understand that it’s okay to have self appreciation and self love, as I have been in that place before, but i find it hard now, 7 years later, to accept the change in myself, in my figure. 
The other hard thing for me today is to share this about myself so publicly!

I hate the thought of anyone feeling sad for me, so things like this I would rather keep between myself and close friends! 

*this is not a pity post, this is my journey to self love*
I’m always up for a challenge though, to prove to myself that I’m working on being a better version of myself! 
The other thing you will notice is there is no picture of me, just my very raw, messy handwriting! 

The picture is from one of my actions I had to do for my health coach session with Louise.

‘Write a letter from your future self’ 

I hope it will all make sense when you read it/if you can read it! 
I didn’t want to re-write it and pretty it up because, that just wouldn’t be the right thing to do!
