Screw it, final goodbyes

Hey,

So I’ve changed my mind again. What a suprise that is. I know I said I would do three posts these last two months, but honestly, I don’t want too. So here is everything I need to say.

First of, my goals. Completely smashed them! I feel so ill now though but I did it!! I kind of went overboard, stressed myself out, pushed myself too hard and made my head a little crazy to be in, but I’m back on the other side now. Just recovering from an awful chest infection cold type thing.

I created this blog in March 2015, and I can tell you, I have loved every second of it. Through all of my ups and many downs I have shared on here, I have made some incredible life long internet friends. Some, I want to meet in real life and spoil the hell out of them! 

This blog has been my little safe haven. My place where I have been able to grow and never be put down for expressing myself. Each and every one of you mean so much to me in very different ways. Some of you were my very first supporters, some of you are the ones who are bold enough to give me constructive feedback, without wanting to hurt my feelings. Some of you are my little cheerleaders, always pushing me forward, always there to motivate me when I need a kick up the ass and the ones I can cry too if I need too. And all of you, yes all 600+ of you are my family. Without you, this new beginging wouldn’t be possible.

I have had so many amazing opportunities while running this blog, I mean I worked with Clinique for god sake! Never in my life would I have thought that was possible! I have worked with other amazing brands such as propercorn ( who I am still totally obsessed with! Lightly sea salted all the way!!), Toddlebike2 (who have made my cousins playtime so much better!), Malki Dead sea minerals (the one company who has made my skin amazing!) Saint London, (who have georgeous watches ((use my discount code IMAGALAXYGIRLBLOG for 20% off!) And many more. 

I’m not going to lie, writing and uploading everyday, sometimes more than once was a struggle, I did rush some content but others on here are my pride and joy. This blog has over 30k views and that is insane! 

I have literally grown up infront of your eyes, I’ve gone from a shy little girl who was afraid of the world, to a girl who has opened herself up to the galaxy and has finally accepted who she is. (Hence why I have stuck with the galaxygirl name). 

I do love and appreciate every one of you, because lets face it, without you, I would still be that shy girl who is too afraid to stand up for what she believes in. 

This new blog and YouTube is going to the best new journey I can take. I have already had my fair share of cries and tantrams over them both, so you know that they are going to be good. If you want to join the team, be a part of the new journey I am taking, then click here to subscribe to my brand new YouTube channel, here to follow my new blog, here to follow my Twitter (leaving hints every day up until the release date!) and here to check out my Instagram. That’s all the links you need right now. 

Thank you for the best years of my life, thank you for the valuable lessons you have all taught me and thank you for being such amazing, supportive friends. Love to every one of you, I wish you all the luck for the future. Dream big and reach for those stars because you will soon reach them!

Love you all!

November goals

Hello,

How are you? I need to address something before I carry on with my post. A few of you have noticed a name change on my social media. You are very observant. I have created a new blog. Yes, you read that right. It would be amazing if you could all head over and follow me. That new blog will have it’s first ever post on January 1st 2018! Natalie had messaged me some words of widsom and she was right, I shouldn’t delete everything, because I did work my arse off on my content. So, instead of deleting everything, I am keeping this blog. It just wont be used anymore. My new blog is www.lifelikeagalaxygirl.wordpress.com please head over and follow me. Share this on your Twitter and Instagram too! Help me reach at least 200 followers before I begin.

☆☆☆☆

Okay, so now that that is done, I want to share with you my November goals.

  • Go to bed before 3am – I have been going to sleep around 3am and then not waking up till gone 12! That’s really not healthy, so my aim to sleep at a normal time.
  • Wake up before 12pm – Obviously! Hopefully I can get my body into the routine of waking up at 8am. 
  • Lose some weight – I have been doing so well at this, then after my little wobble, I gained 2 pounds. Now, that isn’t much at all, but I need to loose it and some more too.
  • Get a minimum of 200 followers on my new blog – This blog has over 600 followers and every single one of you are amazing! But I know that realistically, not everyone will follow my new blog. But I am hoping that 200 out of 600+ still want to follow my journey.
  • Do more photography – I’m not sure when I neglected it, but I want to go out and get some new shots. I love uploading them to my photography Instagram page.

☆☆☆☆

Well, that is it. Those are my goals! I will update you on these at the end of the month. Again, here is the link to my new blog www.lifelikeagalaxygirl.wordpress.com I hope to see you all over there!

Lots of love and I will see you soon.

Let’s talk about boobs

Hey,

How are you? Today I am talking about boobs/tits/whatever you call them. If you find reading the title uncomfortable, please hang in there, this post is rather important.

Boobs, we all have them, yes I am talking about you men too. We hide them away in a bra for 12+ a day, we grope them, we pinch them, we compare them, we complain about them and we love them. You shouldn’t be ashamed of them.

We have saggy boobs, perky boobs, perfectly rounded boobs, wonky boobs, double d boobs and non exsistant boobs. You shouldn’t be ashamed of them.

One person is diagoned with breast cancer every 10 minutes.

Let that just sink in a minute. Every ten minutes, someone is being told they have cancer. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers here in the UK, yet still not everyone is aware of it. So I am here to educate you a little more. B

The three main risk factors of breast cancer:

1. Being a woman – over 99% of new cases of breast cancer are in women.

2. Getting older – more than 80% of breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50. Most men who get breast cancer are over 60.

3. Significant family history – this isn’t common, around 5% of people diagnosed with breast cancer have inherited a faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene.

Breast cancer diagnosis

1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month around5,000 people will be diagnosed.

Survival rates

Breast cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last forty years in the UK.

Almost nine in 10 women survive breast cancer for five years or more.

Every year around 11,400 people die from breast cancer in the UK.

An estimated 691,000 are alive in the UK after a diagnosis of breast cancer. This is predicted to rise to 840,000 in 2020. For many the overwhelming emotional and physical effects of the disease can be long-lasting.

Breasts and men

Breast cancer in men is very rare with just 390 new cases in the UK each year, compared to nearly 55,000 new cases in women.

More than half (55%) of male breast cancer deaths in the UK are in men aged 75 and over.

A Breast Cancer Care survey found nearly three-quarters (73%) of men don’t check their breasts for signs and symptoms of breast cancer, even though the same number (73%) know that men can get the disease.

Signs and symptoms can be:

  • a change in size or shape
  • a lump or area that feels thicker than the rest of the breast
  • a change in skin texture such as puckering or dimpling (like the skin of an orange)
  • redness or rash on the skin and/or around the nipple
  • your nipple has become inverted (pulled in) or looks different (for example changed its position or shape)
  • liquid that comes from the nipple without squeezing
  • pain in your breast or your armpit that’s there all or almost all of the time
  • a swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone

Many symptoms of breast cancer, such as breast pain or a lump, may in fact be caused by normal breast changes or a benign (not cancer) breast condition. However, if you notice a change, it’s important to see your GP (local doctor) as soon as you can.

How to check

Everyone’s breasts look and feel different. Some people have lumpy breasts, or one breast larger than the other, or breasts that are different shapes. When you check your breasts, try to be aware of any changes that are different for you.

Look at and feel your breasts so you know what’s normal for you

Try to get used to looking at and feeling your breasts regularly – for instance, when you are in the bath or shower, using body lotion or getting dressed. You don’t need to feel your breasts in any special way.

Remember to check all parts of your breasts, your armpits and up to your collarbone.

Not every lump is dangerous

Most breast changes will not be cancer. However, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK so it is important that you find out what’s causing the change.

If your GP is male and you don’t feel comfortable going to see him, you can ask if there’s a female doctor available. You can also ask for a female nurse or member of staff to be present during your examination, or you can take a friend or relative with you.

When your GP examines your breasts they may feel that there is no need for further investigation, they may ask to see you again after a short  time or they may refer you to a breast clinic. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have breast cancer, just that further tests are needed to find out what is going on.

What is my point?

All I am asking is for you to check yourself regularly, go to your gp if you’re concerned, and go if you find any changes. If you are in a relationship, why don’t you get your partner to check? If they dont find anything then who knows what you’ll end up doing, do not be afraid to ask.

Don’t forget your boobs do change during periods, pregnancy ect, so just keep that in mind, I don’t want you thinking you’ve got cancer because your boob decided to release a little bit of milk.

Do take this seriously, as I said, every 10 minutes someone is diagnosed with this. This is not a joke, this is your own knowledge.

◇◇◇◇

Thank you for reading this post. Please do share this around and help make more people aware of not only breast cancer itself but how to check your boobs.

Don’t forget to donate to charities that are fighting to cure cancer, every little helps.

Thats all for me, thank you for your time.

Love,

October workouts


Hey,

Today I am bringing you another workout post. I know how much you love them haha. Honestly this post is more for me then anything else. Last month I didn’t exercise at all, I ate cake, chocolate and just pure shite so I really need to get myself back on track.  I was doing so well with keeping my weight down but on my break off, I feel as though I have put on a few stone. I haven’t because I weighed myself and I have only put on two pounds since last month, but with my ongoing issues I am walking around looking seven months pregnant. So here is my October workouts, let me know if you’re planning on taking part in this too.

Mondays

  • 25 sit ups
  • 15 crunches
  • 25 jumping jacks
  • 35sec plank

 Tuesday

  • 3 mile walk

Wednesday

  • 35 sit ups
  • 25 crunches
  • 35 jumping jacks
  • 45sec plank

Thursday

Friday

  • 25 sit ups
  • 15 crunches
  • 25 jumping jacks
  • 50 sec plank

Saturday

That is it. Nothing too hard but working out everyday will ache for a little bit. But fitness and feeling good about yourself does come with a lot of hard work, so that is why I am forcing myself to move my ass.

I hope you do attempt the workout, adjust it to your own capability, this is just a minimum. Thank you for reading and have fun.

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,

October Goals


Hey,

Pinch punch it’s the first of the month. Happy October. We are 10 months in now so we are getting closer and closer to a Christmas and I am getting closer and closer to my big move. If you have no idea what I am talking about, read my moving to the big A post. This time next year, I will be getting myself ready to move across the world to start a new adventure. Today’s post is not about that though, so I am going to stop banging on about it and get on with the actual post. I am bringing you another month of goals that we all know I will forget about.

October goals

  1. Workout again. – I didn’t workout once last month, I couldn’t be bothered, but this month I want to lose the weight that I gained last month.
  2. Spend at least an hour out of the house everyday. – All I ever do is stay at home or go to work. I am so sick of seeing the same four walls. Last month I was out most of the time but it was never “me” time. I want to start having an hour to myself outside in the fresh air, to clear my head or go for a run, write a blog post or just chill in the meadow.
  3. Focus on my blog. – My blog is blooming, I can’t quite believe the response that  it is getting, but I have decided that uploading 8 posts every week is a little much, so I need to work out what is best for my blog and what is best for all of you then see what is manageable. Chances are I won’t change anything until the New year because I already have the rest of the years posts planned.
  4. Photography. – My good old goal is back again. If you don’t really know me, I love photography, I may not be perfect at it but I am always proud of my work, I have a photography account on Instagram where I like to show off some of them. My aim is to take a photo everyday of the month, I want to then put it into a photo book and keep it, each picture will be a memory of something that I did that day.
  5. Self pride. – I have done so much that I should be proud of, but I never ever really remind myself that I am doing something good. I just keep on going without really rewarding myself that I am being a kick ass woman and I should be proud of myself. So this month, when I do something great, I am going to make sure I remind myself that I am doing good.
  6. More interactive. – Obviously last month I wasn’t overly active on any of your posts because I was having a me month, so this month I am going to make sure I show you all how proud I am of you and your blogs. I will make sure I catch up on last months posts too.

That is the end of my goals, I’m not setting myself loads because I want to focus on specific things. I hope that you still enjoyed this post. Thank you for reading. Before I go I want to leave you with a quote:

Please don’t judge people. You don’t know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel presentable as possible, and face the day. You never truly know the daily struggle of others. ~ Karen Salmansohn

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

The end of Summer


Hey,

Happy Friday. Today is officially the last day of summer, I have already said my final goodbyes to the sun and I have begun to mentally prepare myself for the amount of hot chocolate I will be consuming while laying in my comfy pj’s and my fluffy socks. As I have seen on Twitter, so many of you are absolutely buzzing. Mental! So tell me, what exactly are you hyped up about? Is it the fact that the leaves are slowly falling off the trees creating gorgeous burnt orange paths, or is it Halloween? I am not a huge fan of Halloween so I am praying that it is the leaves.

This summer has been the best summer of my life. I may not have completed the things that I so desperately wanted to but what I did do, was go on a journey and I have learnt more about myself then I thought possible. I have become such a different person and in the best way.

I was always scared to go out on my own, just  in fear my sexual assaulter was walking around, I knew deep down that he wouldn’t be but I had convinced myself that he could be. The only way I would go out on my own is if a) it wasn’t dark and b) the person I was meeting would either meet me half way or pick me up, if they wasn’t prepared to do either then it was a no go zone. I was afraid of the place that I live in, the lace that I have lived in for eighteen years. To walk to the shop, I had to force either one of my siblings to walk with me or my mum, if they wouldn’t then I wouldn’t go to the shop. I was a mess.

Now, I can freely walk around. I still get someone to walk to the shop with me but that’s only because I don’t want to have another awkward encounter with my  ex. Not only am I no longer afraid to walk around my own village, for the first time in 5 years or more, I actually went into town without having an anxiety attack. One of my best friends Saskia drove down and we headed to town. I don’t think I freaked out at all. We went and sat inside McDonalds which I was a little nervous about because I don’t know what I would have done if I saw him or his family. But everything was good, we sat in there and I was able to relax even with kids running around and screaming. We then headed the park that’s in town, another prime place that he or his family could be. I tried to not think about it, instead I took some pictures for my photography and enjoyed a catch up with Saskia. We headed back to mine after doing a school run, but I honestly can’t even begin to put into words how proud of myself I felt. I went into town, went to the school, went to drop her brother off at the hairdressers and then I had to go through the village that he lives in and stop at  a garage that I know he frequently visits. I didn’t freak out once, I kept myself calm and distracted and just focused on spending time with Saskia rather then ruining it by having an attack.

I have also made new friends and actually met them. I have always had the fear of meeting up with boys that I haven’t met before, but this time I felt confident and I knew that if I met them it wouldn’t be anything like my fears. I had met one of them last year and he was super chill and cool so seeing him again wasn’t so weird. The other boy is his best friend and I am not going to lie, he is hot as hell. Also another little secret, I fancy the pants of him! I literally get so happy when we talk, not that we do it very often anymore, but seriously, he is literally so good looking. He has the cutest smile too, and I have learnt that he has different smiles, which  are all cute obviously but yeah, I like him.

I have become a lot braver to say what is on my mind.  Usually I just bottle things up and I let people walk all over me, I would have been too scared of confrontation then to actually stand up for myself. Now, I am totally different. If you make me feel uncomfortable, I will be telling you and the reasons wh. If you are being rude, I won’t be rude back because that doesn’t make me any better, instead I will straight up ask you what your problem is and ask if there was any need to be rude. Honestly I will stand there all day and question your motives if I have to. I can’t stand rue people, there is no need for it. My old boss spoke to me on the phone last week and she asked why I quit and wanted to be honest with her, so I was and she didn’t know what to say next. I told her that the way she spoke to me was rude and that she made me feel as though I was incompetent when I am not, all she could respond was, “okay, I’ll see you on Wednesday for our meeting” and put the phone down.

Recently on Twitter I have seen a lot of bashing. People are bashing transgender and how “it’s not right”, people are still bashing gays and bisexuals too and I have written a post already on it which you can read here if you’re interested in reading my views. I do plan on writing another one if that is something you would like to see? I don’t often post controversial things, I usually stick to things that wont get much hate such as my beauty posts or DIY’s etc.. I think now is the time to step out of my comfort zone and actually  express my feelings on topics. If I can do this in person then I should be able to do this on the internet.

I have worked my absolute arse off this summer to become a confident person. My  confidence has always been low, I have never felt good about myself and I have always almost resented myself for the way I look, but that has changed. I am not one hundred percent there yet, I still have things that I absolutely hate about myself, but those are things that  I can’t personally change, if I was to change them, I would need to go through surgery and that is something that I never want to do, because I don’t want to feel as though  surgery is the only way I can be happy when in reality a strawberry milkshake from McDonalds makes me very  happy. I have done so much for my body and I am starting to notice the change. I have always been “fat”, well ever since I was 7 when I found out about my problem. Dieting has never been hard for me, eating less doesn’t bother me at all, it just didn’t work. I was doing everything right, eating less, exercising, keeping my fluids up but nothing changed. I was then put on medication because my problem was getting worse and the side effect of that is weight gain, so I have literally been fighting a loosing battle. My problem is again showing signs of becoming worse so hopefully I can get a solution when I go to the hospital on the 28th. Anyway, I am trying dieting again and this time I am cutting back on the amount of dairy I consume, I am a tea addict so this has been hard because I love a milky tea, but instead I have opted for peppermint green tea which is 1) tasty af and 2) great for weight loss. I have also been taking vitamins because I know that when my problem flares up again, my iron levels go a little crazy. I have lost a stone and a half already which I am so happy about, unfortunately on bad days my weight does go back up but as I said I am fighting a loosing battle.

I have changed my appearance a lot too. I felt as if this would boost my confidence seeing as my weight isn’t exactly something I can control. I am taking more pride in the way I look. Back when I was feeling like shit, I wouldn’t put any effort in so I would look shit too, but now, whether I like it or not, I am up and out of bed by 10am, washed, dressed and make-up done. My style of clothing has changed a lot too, I was a huge lover of things that were sizes too big because that way I could hide my  “fat” and no-one would notice. Now, I buy things in the right size and I buy things that won’t hide my “fat” but instead hug it and make it look good. I have added a lot more colour into my wardrobe, wearing black 24/7 was just adding to my gloomy mood and it just wasn’t a flattering colour. I have also been wearing skirts and dresses which is like a huge deal. I should get an award for that because never in a million years did I think I would be putting them on again. I now take the time to do my make-up. I don’t just put it on I a rush and then leave. I actually blend things in, mix colours and make my make-up centre of attention. I have absolutely nailed the dramatic look. Kind of matches my drama queen personality.

Speaking of drama, I have been the bigger person, quite literally and metaphorically. There has been on going drama since I was in year 7 and people like to hold a grudge which when you think about it, holding a grudge for that long is really sad and a tad bit pathetic but each to their own I suppose, Anyway, the girl that had the problem with me is friends with two of my friends so when they mention my name around her, she gets all defensive and has the whole story of how I am an utter bitch and how I have ruined her life ready to spill so obviously they tell me the whole story and it hasn’t changed at all, well apart from the new part that I stole her boyfriend when in fact, I wasn’t interested in him at all, to be honest, he kind of scared me a little but anyway, I finally put an end to it. I admitted that I am a bitch, because I can be, I can say things that  will melt your heart and I can say things that  will crush you, it all depends on what you’ve done. I fully admitted that our friendship ended on shitty terms but I wasn’t going to say that I ruined her life because that’s just total bullshit. She came out of the whole friendship smelling of roses and everyone thought she was an angel when in fact, most of our issues stemmed from her. I told my friends that spending so much time hating someone is just a waste, so no I don’t hate her, no I don’t dislike her, she is a part of my past so I wish her well in everything she does, but no, I do not wish to ever become her friend again and no I don’t wish to see her again. My friends then told her that I don’t have an issue with her and that its all her problem and now she has unblocked me, which I actually find quite annoying. At least she now knows how I actually feel, she can do whatever she wants with that information, I don’t care.

This summer I have spent my time doing the one thing that I love the most. Any chance I have had, my camera has been out and I have been working hard on my photography. I have made an Instagram for my photography so head over and follow it  if you’re interested in seeing my work. Due to having pictures from my blog taken and then classed as their own, I have added my name onto them so no-one can steal them. My photography use to be shit, probably worse then shit but I can’t think of a word for that. It would be blurry and not really focused on anything particular, it was if I was taking a picture for the sake of taking a picture. Now I  find things worth capturing. I came across a butterfly bush while on an adventure, I spent a good half hour or more capturing shots of them. I also have many landscape photographs. I have determined that I am more of a nature photographer then anything else. I would love to try to do a shoot though, just to see if I was any good at taking pictures of people. I wanted to go to college to study photography but when asking people on their opinion they said that it was more of a hobby then a career so I have kind of gone off that idea.

Don’t get me wrong, my summer as you have read so far has been the best and I am so thrilled that I have done everything above, but I didn’t spend everyday in a field of wild flowers loving life. I had some real deep rough days. I had days where for no reason I would feel like I should self harm. Thankfully I didn’t but I did have those constant thoughts. I had days where I would cry non stop, I felt suicidal and planned how I would die. I was a mess. I had no-one to truly open up to, I couldn’t tell my parents because they had enough going on and my friends are so judgemental on this issue. I only have one friend that truly understands why my brain is fucked but unfortunately he was away working at the time I was feeling like this so I had no where to go. I’m not telling you this to get sympathy, I am telling you because this was a huge part of my summer. By summer I don’t mean the six weeks you had off school, I mean from June, July, August and September. These feelings are a huge part of me.

Four years ago, after my assault I began to write all of my emotions out into poems, I loved writing poems because before my assault I would write them all the time and I even had a few published into books. After my assault my poems became dark and I fell out of love with writing, it was a reminder of what I had been through and I hated it. After studying creative writing at school, it inspired me to start writing again. Obviously I post a lot on my blog, but what I post on here isn’t always a true representation on who I am or what I am feeling. My creative writing teacher Miss D was so supportive. I had to write a story as part of my coursework and her feedback was always the best. It’s all thanks to her that I am continuing the story and turning it into a book. I don’t know if it will just be a book for me to put into my memory box once I have completed it or if I will make sure it gets out there for everyone else to read. I have also written a lot of poetry, I have expressed myself, my thoughts and just normal everyday situations and I have felt amazing doing it. I always feel a surge of energy whenever I do a lot of writing so I am happy that I decided to work past my inner thoughts and put pen to paper to create some amazing pieces.

This summer really has been a highlight of the year, after starting off on a very rocky path of being kicked out of school and then having no sense of direction and no motivation, I think I can safely and proudly say I pulled it out of the bag and turned things around. I am finally grabbing this year and making the most out of it, because I have learnt that it only takes one day to change everything, it takes one mistake to mess everything else up and it takes only one move to change things from good to bad. I found a quote that has stuck by me and that is “ever story has a happy ending, if you’re not happy, its not the end”, and it’s true. Only you can decide if the story is over or not, so why just settle with the average when you can make it the best. I wasn’t happy so I took that on board and did everything I could to make myself happy, and as I have already told you, it wasn’t always a smooth path, but I have ended this feeling things that I didn’t know I would be feeling. This is by no means the end though, my story still has many pages to go. Autumn is a new season, bringing new months and new leads to follow. I can’t wait to show you what I can get up to.

🖤🖤🖤

That is the end of my very long post, thank you for reading and I hope your summer has been as great, if not even better then mine.

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,

A little update

Hey,

How are you? I know that I have been away for a while now but today I want to come back and have a little chat and just update you all on my time away. If you follow me on Twitter you will see that I am doing so well, I am so happy and for the first time in a very long time, I feel as though I can do anything.

My heath

My health has been amazing. I have a cold which is totally my own fault but other then that I have been great. The last time I had a seizure was when I had my job trial. I haven’t felt that ill since either. The only reason I have a cold is because the night of my party, a group of us went to the park around 11pm and everything was wet and cold, and yes I was the idiot who didn’t put a jacket on. I do have hospital on the 28th for some personal things but other than that, nothing big is happening.

Job situation

Okay so something big happened in this department. I totally over reacted at work and had a total breakdown, I was fed up with the way I was being spoken to and the way I was being treated and I just let it build up until I broke down I tears. I was made to feel as if I was useless and incapable. I went to the manager and sat there crying like an idiot and I told her that I want to leave immediately and without pay if necessary. One, how stupid, bills can’t be paid without money and two, I bloody need that job. I now don’t have a job which sucks because I have bills and things to pay. But I did speak to my boss and she was very rude again, so I told her point blank how she made me feel and she didn’t know how to respond.

Friends

Apart from seeing them at my party, I haven’t spoken to them. I have also completely cut off people, even the ones that I had been friends with for years. I came to the point where I was sick of putting in all the effort and getting nothing back in return. I had to think about it and I thought what’s the point. Who am I going to miss when I move? Who will bother with me when I move? They weren’t on the list so it was an easy decision to make. I dint think they’ve even noticed to be honest, which really says it all. My other friends have gone back to college/sixth form for their last year so we are meeting again for Halloween.

Fitness

Ha. What even is that? I have literally been the laziest person and I haven’t exercised once. I have lost weight though which I am beyond happy about, I think its where I am ill so im not wanting to eat as much, and I haven’t spent my wages on chocolate, cakes and pasties. I do plan on getting back into the swing of things in October, right now I just want to carry on having fun, being crazy and keep my adventures up.

What am I up to?

Taking this month of has been a huge weight lifted from my shoulders and even though I’m not active, you’re all smashing the love and support so thank you so much. I have been spending time with my family, something that I now realise I don’t do enough. My cousins have recently moved down to where I live so I have been spending time with them, mostly qt the park but still, spending time with them is fun. The only complaint I have about it is that I am quite often mistaken as my cousins mum which is dead awkward, because she is one, she keeps saying mum mum mum which makes matters worse for me.

I have also been on some late night adventures which is fun, a little tiring but honestly I’ve never had so much adrenaline rush through me. It’s safe to say, I am being a wild child. When im not out gallivanting around town, I am being a good girl and writing blog post, letters and taking part in an online course. I have also done a few personal things which has made me feel a lot more confident and I actually feel proud to go out without make up or looking glamed up, my sweatpants and messy bun look is a real winner.

What’s coming up?

My brother’s and my sisters birthdays are soon and my break will be over shortly after that. As I’ve already said, I have hospital on the 28th but nothing big or overly exciting is coming up.

Well that is the end of the update. I will be available to chat today so come and chat. Thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day.

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,

Will you be working out still? I hope so. Thank you so much for reading,

August workouts

Hey,

Welcome back to another post. I know some of you have been expecting a new workout post so I am sharing it today. I know they are normally posted on the 8th but it’s better late then never right? How did you find Julys workout? I wonder how many of you stuck to it.

Last months workouts were very intense so I thought I would make them a little kinder, for your sake and mine. Just because they are easier it doesn’t mean you can slack off and not put any effort in. Your body shows the amount of effort you put in, so you’ll only end up cheating yourself.

Mondays

  • 10 push ups
  • 20 squats
  • 10 butt kicks
  • 15 lunges (each leg)
  • 20 sit ups
  • 30 sec plank
  • 15 crunches
  • 35 jumping jacks

Tuesdays

  • 15 push ups
  • 40 squats
  • 15 butt kicks
  • 30 lunges (each leg)
  • 10 sit ups
  • 35 sec plank
  • 20 crunches
  • 10 jumping jacks

Wednesdays

  • 10 minute run

Thursday

  • REST DAY

Friday

  • 20 push ups
  • 20 squats
  • 20 butt kicks
  • 20 lunges (each leg)
  • 20 sec plank
  • 20 crunches
  • 20 jumping jacks

Saturday

  • 25 push ups
  • 45 squats
  • 30 butt kicks
  • 25 lunges (each leg)
  • 40 sec plank
  • 30 crunches
  • 30 jumping jacks

Sunday

  • 10 push ups
  • 30 squats
  • 10 butt kicks
  • 5 lunges (each leg)
  • 45 sec plank
  • 40 crunches
  • 20 jumping jacks

Do you think you’ll be able to do this? I added in a rest day because I know that my workouts haven’t had a rest day in a while. I also added a 20 day, so you’re body eases back into the workout after having a day off. If a 10 minute run is not long enough, be sure to double it. If you’re looking to really push yourself, double the amounts because that’s how you’ll feel the most effects. Do not make yourself ill while doing this, exercise is great but remember you still need a good diet if you want to see these effects.

Top 5 songs to workout to:
  • Say something – Zac Samuel remix
  • No lie – Sam Feldt remix
  • Issues – Alan Walker remix
  • Into you – 3LAU remix
  • Is this love – Bob Marley& the Wailers remix

Motivational quotes

A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there.

Get that glow. That sweat glow.

Either you run the day or the day runs you.

Train insane or remain the same.

I hope you try this workout, if you do, let me know how you get on. Thats it from me. I hope you have a wonderful evening and I will see you all soon.

Stay safe, stay happy and live life as an adventure.

Love,
