Reflections: Week 7 – C25K

Reflections – C25K – Week 7 Week 7 was a bumper week. First, I had to sort out a replacement laptop to continue working on my studies. Second, I also had to work on my mental health, as I felt pretty low since my laptop broke down during a crucial time in my life, whichContinue reading “Reflections: Week 7 – C25K”

Fat Fridays: The Evolution of Unique – 18.06.2021

Fat Fridays – 18.06.2021 The Evolution of Unique From time to time, I reflect upon where I am at this moment in my life.

Today, I findContinue reading “Fat Fridays: The Evolution of Unique – 18.06.2021”

During Menstruation

Sometimes it is easy to forget that we need to take extra care of ourselves during our period. This month I have craved salty foods and bought salty foods to feed my salty desires. However, it was wrong of me to react that way to something I’m expecting and know how to manage when itContinue reading “During Menstruation”

Reflections: C25K – Week 6

Reflections: C25K – Week 6 Last week was a challenging week, my laptop broke down, and I hadn’t backed up everything. I cried, cried and cried some more. But crying doesn’t solve an issue. Instead, it seeks to prolong it. I sought help and was ignored by people who are there to help. I turnedContinue reading “Reflections: C25K – Week 6”

C25K: Week Five Reflections – 31.05.2021

Week five was a week worth of walking; a combination of the high temperatures and stress levels on the increase in general areas of my life had me feeling like giving up on the training plan. A mixture of the past cutting into the present, tempting me to revert to laziness. I walked daily, sixContinue reading “C25K: Week Five Reflections – 31.05.2021”

Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021

This week has been challenging, though it started well. History came zapping through my phone and pinging on WhatsApp with a ‘Hey, Unique…’ the innocence of the opening-line opened up that tiny door in my heart. Then blasted through with a missile, forcing my eyes to focus on reality. In short? There is no short.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: Off the Mark 28.05.2021”

Body Positivity: Love Yourself First!

Hey Beautiful People, Yesterday I had some downtime, where I played some music [Ice T – TEMS] and made this short video on Snapchat. I usually avoid photos, videos and indeed meetings online – I have spent many years putting this down to ‘shyness’; however, I realised this weekend that it isn’t shyness that I’mContinue reading “Body Positivity: Love Yourself First!”

Reflection: Week Four – 22.05.2021

This week I have been menstruating. I planned to go for a jog on Wednesday, but I never felt so good. I have been feeling under the weather; my GP reckons it may be a seasonal bug. Symptoms should pass in 24-48 hours. The good news is I finally have a new pair of trainersContinue reading “Reflection: Week Four – 22.05.2021”

Reflection: C25K – Week 3

What a phenomenal week of training! I trained for 6/7 days with 4/7 days dedicated to the plan. I admit that it had taken me an age to push through and get dressed. I had many occasions where I would tell myself that ‘this plan is not for me, I can’t make it! I’m notContinue reading “Reflection: C25K – Week 3”
