Whats going on with Me

Remembering that part of the reason I started this blog as a sort of outlet but then also not knowing how much I should keep just to myself has been a bit of a struggle, but I don't want to write down a life that I think I have on here and then log off and be something else (not what I've been doing so far). So I just thought I would do a little update on the life.

The Body,
Around 5-6 months ago I went to the doctors and got put on the pill (prevent those babies). That along with eating rubbish as we do in new relationships I gained quite a bit of weight, I didn't really out any of it down to the pill I just thought it was my diet and lifestyle. So going back a couple of months when I started to eat a little better and I joined the gym I thought it would be pretty easy to get back to my normal weight, you can imagine my frustration when going to gym and tracking everything I ate didn't work at all and all that happened was that I continued to put on MORE weight. So far since starting the pill I have gained almost 2 stone altogether so last week I made the decision that I was no longer going to be taking it, there is absolutely no point putting something in my body that will only effect it negatively. So we shall see over the next few months if things go back to normal.

The Mind,
I have struggled with my mental health since I was around 11 years old, I have been lucky enough to always have had people around me to support me through rough times. Before I had Sophia was probably when I was at my worst mentally, I won't go into things too much at this point but I will say that I did not want to be alive and I tried my best to make that a reality. When I found out I was pregnant it was like a switch went off in my head, I couldn't be selfish anymore, I needed to think about the life that was inside me and that's all I allowed myself to think about. Fast forward to now, Sophia is 3 and because there are a lot of things I didn't deal with before I feel like things have been getting pretty bad in my head, things have built up over the years and I am definitely not any better with knowing how to deal with things. So I've been to see a doctor about getting some more help because it's time for me to deal with me again.

Other than all that things have been pretty good, Sophia is still loving life as a nursery girl, she has a day off today so we are having some chills and then need to head to the shops so this mumma can get some new foundation!

Thank you for reading.

Going Dairy Free.

Quick disclaimer for this post, all information has come from my own research and advice from my doctor. There are photos on this post that show my skin when my acne was pretty bad so if that's something that could be uncomfortable then maybe this post isn't for you.

In around May 2017 I had decided that enough was enough when it came to my skin, I was sick of not being able to wear t-shirts or anything that showed off my shoulders/back, covering myself up all the time especially on warmer days wasn't ideal and my confidence was at a low. I had done some of my own research and found a lot of videos and articles that linked acne to dairy products, there was so many youtube videos which showed how much people's skin cleared up after they cut dairy out of their diet. I sat on it for a few days and continued to do research until I decided to just go for it, I ordered a big food shop to the house with nothing that contained dairy, I've found new butters and milks that I…

The Week off

Last week while I was working I was thinking that I definitely had a holiday coming soon but I had completely forgotten about it, so you can imagine my surprise when I was told that my holiday was actually this week! I wish I could say I've been super productive, I did originally plan to decorate my bedroom but with the time off being quite last minute I didn't want to hurry around and get everything I needed for decorating when I could actually just relax for once.

Monday to Friday were pretty standard, Sophia still had nursery so it was quite odd having time to just chill out and not be getting ready to leave for work, I also tried to make time for friends that I don't get to see that often which was quite lovely. After nursery on Friday my mum came through to pick Sophia up and take her away for the weekend, so it was even more weird not having to wake up super early on Saturday for either work or Soph.

Last night Ruairi and I had a wedding reception to go to with some f…

A look back on October

Sophia has been put to bed, the housework has been partially done and I've had a long day so it's finally time for me to sit down and talk to myself on here!

Another month crossed off of 2017, October was a good one! A wee holiday from work, lots of time with Sophia and HALLOWEEN! I wish I had lots of stories for each week of the month but life hasn't been that exciting really, I think the main reason I've enjoyed it so much is probably just because it has been nice and quiet and it is nice sometimes to just not have anything big going on. I'm loving the darker nights, warmer clothes and all the hot drinks I can have whenever I like.

Last Saturday after working a 9 hour shift at work I had to quickly get home and ready for a Halloween party with Ruairi and some of his friends and family, sadly with having limited time to get ready, the 10 minute make up was scary enough so I didn't take any photos that night, I went there with the mindset that I'd be leaving…
