Fat Fridays: But It’s Too Cold Outside – 07.01.2022

All week I’ve opted to use public transport to travel to work. Because I feel the icy wind on my face, I talk myself out of walking. While writing this post, I recognise it is a silly excuse. The festive period, blended with this ongoing pandemic, led me to spend most of my time indoors.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: But It’s Too Cold Outside – 07.01.2022”

Fat Fridays: The End of an Interesting Year – Thank you, 2021 – 31.12.2021

This year has been the bomb, the explosion, the implosion and constant repair. I’ve cried a thousand times, maybe less than a hundred, I don’t know exactly, but I do care. This year has challenged me to forgive and mean it simultaneously. To stop saying things for the sake of saying something, stop saying, ‘yes,’Continue reading “Fat Fridays: The End of an Interesting Year – Thank you, 2021 – 31.12.2021”

Fat Fridays: What Fatso Heard? – 24.12.2021

What Fatso Heard? I’m not a ‘fan’ or a ‘traditional follower’ of Christmas! However, it is important to help those who are less fortunate than yourself. This help does not have to be financial; handing them cash into their hands. It could be signposting them to professional/charitable organisations or vice Versa. My point is thatContinue reading “Fat Fridays: What Fatso Heard? – 24.12.2021”

Fat Fridays: What to Eat? What to Do? – 17.12.2021

Fat Fridays:  What to eat? What to do? Ah! The festive season is in full force! It’s the season to fain a few pounds and not be judged harshly because tis the season. What! How can this be normal? Well, society has normalised it! ‘Roll up, roll up, come and feast your eyes on this!Continue reading “Fat Fridays: What to Eat? What to Do? – 17.12.2021”

Fat Fridays: How About Houmous? 10.12.2021

How About Houmous? I was out at an event the other night that had NO veggie options for me to enjoy. Everything contained meat! I asked the hose for any vegetarian options; she advised, ‘whatever is out, is out.’ Of course, I was made to feel bad for asking, like asking is a crime, andContinue reading “Fat Fridays: How About Houmous? 10.12.2021”

Welcome December 2021

Today is the 1st of December 2021 – A year that will end 30 days from today. November was a difficult month for me, as I aim to complete so much in very little time. Unfortunately, I gained a few pounds through emotional eating, which was bought on through a series of failed plans. NovemberContinue reading “Welcome December 2021”

Fat Fridays: Overtired – 26.11.2021       

I struggle with saying ‘no’ to people when they ask me to do things, ‘favours!’ it’s always the same people, needing some form of support: Financially Physically Emotionally My answer is always YES! Even when time does not permit. Right now, I’m exhausted! Some people don’t even ask; they send a demand via a text,Continue reading “Fat Fridays: Overtired – 26.11.2021       “

Labels! Air Printed and Un-stick-able

A person going through emotional trauma slid into my DMs with a bad attitude and negative energy. They tried to shame my appearance and devalue my self-worth. My reaction was to delete the messages – they mean nothing to me. In a world where we have witnessed first-hand how trolling can push someone to commitContinue reading “Labels! Air Printed and Un-stick-able”

Fat Fridays: The Delusion of Support – 19.11.2021

The Delusion of Support Often I have fallen for the words of those around me, ‘I’m here to support you if you need me.’ I have trusted those words to be true. Only, on the rare occasion where I reach out for support – they look perplexed and move on to discuss a topic aboutContinue reading “Fat Fridays: The Delusion of Support – 19.11.2021”

End of October Reflections

Afternoon All, I’m six days late to share this with you. However, it is sometimes better to be late than not to share at all, right? I believe it is important to reflect and to complete this action often. I use these questions to reflect each month, and I’ve found them helpful with my goalsContinue reading “End of October Reflections”

Fat Fridays: My OCD and Me! 05.11.2021

Fat Fridays – My OCD and Me – 05.11.2021 A few months ago, I shared with you all that I had been diagnosed with OCD. Which mainly consists of checking things over and over again. I hadn’t shared that sometimes my mind latches onto something and then goes high-speed with mind-mapping scenarios about that thing.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: My OCD and Me! 05.11.2021”

Welcome November 2021

Last month was going well for me, diet-wise, until week 3! I reunited with someone from my past. And it’s influenced a cycle of emotional eating, with slight weight gain. A new trigger identified? I believe so. It’s difficult to focus when you have other aspects of life coming into your world and disseminating anythingContinue reading “Welcome November 2021”
