Cor it’s hot, isn’t it! I am sweating all over with my fat. I don’t know anyone else but I am a fat girl and hot weather is not cool with me.
Here are the problems with being fat in the heat.
1) Going around shopping in Primark and your crack is sweating, sad times 😂 😅
2) Every time I come home from going out in the sunshine I need a shower as I am drenched from head to toe in sweat.
3) Because it is hot you don’t wear a lot of clothes and you have to deal with the dilemma of being roasting with layers or haul saying F**k it and get your Wobbly arms out on full display.
4) Every fat girl’s nightmare that is chub rub. If you have never heard of this term it is basically where your thighs rub together due to sweating and cause a fiction which later turns into a burn, joy!
5) Toying constantly with the idea of just being a vampire and stating hidden indoors with the blinds down all day long.
because it has been coughs all round in my home and snot running down the face. I have struggled to function other then to think about sleep. Therefore, spending a lot for time at home and not doing much. Which I don’t mind as I am exhausted anyways!
In other news the car’s bumper needed changing as someone bumped into it by accident. So, that has taken some work, joy!
At least normal rountine has resumed and though my youngest has had three days off from nursery due to a boiler breaking down, it feels good to be back to normal. It has been lovely also to see the sunshine.
So it is currently pouring down and the wind is blasting my hair around. It has been like this for several days and it can get more down with all the greyness. So, I thought it would be good to write some positive reasons why Winter is actually not that bad and there are some positives to this miserable and grey season.
Let’s start off with food – not any old food but comfort food. The yummy stuff full of carbs and gravy to warm up your belly followed by sponge pudding and custard.
A valid reason to stay indoors when it is so cold and wet. You can even be forgiven for wearing your pj’s on all day. You can dose about have a duvet day, keep warm and watch as much trash as humanly possible.
If you are feeling cold a perfect way to warm up is to have a hot bath and getting all warm with fleece PJ’s.
Blankets and hot bottles rule when it is so cold and all you can hear is the wind whistling and battering the windows. I will be honest with one of my favourite things to do is to fall asleep with the sound of rain hitting my window. It is so soothing and it makes me feel grateful that I am a safe in my warm home.
That being said you can not enjoy a winter walk in woodland and then know that you can come home to get warm again.
Loads of cuddles keeping you nice and warm, safe from any harm and lazying around is the best knowing that you can just relax at home with your loved ones.
Hot chocolate is the desired beverage – perfect to warm your cockles and feel all cozy inside.
Today I am writing about things that have being go well for me at the moment. It is good to take some time out and reflect on the positives as we all can get in a bit of a pattern and forgot about the good stuff that we have achieved.
Firstly, this may seem trivial but for me it is really important as most of my life I have struggled with insomnia and getting to sleep due to anxiety. Recently, I have been getting some good night sleep, which has made a huge difference to my mental health. It really does help with making you feel more better especially thinking more logically and getting less emotional about certain things in my life.
I suppose the next point kinda connects to the last positive in that I have been staying calmer more especially when sometimes I may blow up or struggle to deal with change. I really struggle with change especially when it is unexpected but I have learnt to a little walk away and use distraction techniques.
I have re-developed my love for colouring as a way to not only relax for me but also doing it with my eldest also helps me too. Not to mention the fact that doing an activity together has helped our bond and created some calm down which had a ripple effect on the rest of the day. I have found it is a great way to connect to my son as it something just for us on a Sunday so makes it special for him.
The final positive achievement I have done recently is adding more exercise to help tone my body up and make me feel less ugh. I find regular exercise helps give me a bit more energy and again has helped as a way to get rid of some of the daily frustrations I am faced with.
