It’s been a while….

It’s been a while….Forgive me blogging world for I have sinned…. it’s been 8 whole weeks since my last post!!!

I would love to say that I have been super busy & not had time to think or even wash my hair properly let alone write a blog post, but truth is I have been a lazy moo who has lost her mojo…. I haven’t been bothered to wash my hair properly let alone write a blog post…. ok I’m kidding about the hair washing, sort of.

I don’t know what has got into me, but it seems that my holiday ruined me & since coming back I have just lost all interest in almost everything…. my blog, my fitness, my eating, everything has gone to crap…. my motivation has just upped & left me the bitch!

Last weekend instead of wasting it doing nothing as per the last few, me & the boy got super productive on making the place we call home a massive bit of wonderful & it sort of woke me up a little & I knew my motivation was popping up to say a little meek hello.

It’s slowly coming back so I knew I had to get this thing called life in order…. Starting with my eating. Baby steps… let’s not get too crazy now. The whole clean eating went sort of well-ish and my productivity started to up its game, but my fitness and blog motivation were still lacking. Then yesterday morning, a dreary Monday morning no less, I was on my way to work & the perfect song starting playing from my playlist & I knew it was going to be a great day.

Work was busy & I got shit done, I eat so very very clean…. And I took myself back to the gym (I almost died… but that’s not the point). I got home and even washed my dirty gym rat hair, although I did cry a little bit whilst doing so as my arms hurt so badly from my workout that I had to sit in the shower to wash it. It may still have some shampoo & conditioner in it… but it smells nice so whatevs. I went to bed feeling like superwoman and knowing tomorrow would be another great day.

And yeah, it is!!! So what better way than to carry on with this wonderous mood I am in than to write a quick little post to get back into the swing of things.

Sometimes it is the smallest things that give us a kick but they really work, whether it be a song, a quote, something someone says or a picture we see. This song was the perfect wake up & put in the bestest mood. It makes me happy, motivated, a little bit emosh & feel all warm & fuzzy….. You may hate it, completely love it or not even have heard it before, but I wanted to post the lyrics as they are weird crazy beautiful & just a little bit amazing.

Enjoy…..

Everybody’s Free (to Wear Sunscreen) – BAZ LUHRMANN

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it
The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists
Whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
Than my own meandering experience, I will dispense this advice now

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth, oh, never mind
You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth
Until they’ve faded but trust me, in 20 years, you’ll look back
At photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now
How much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked
You are not as fat as you imagine

Don’t worry about the future
Or know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind
The kind that blindsides you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday
Do one thing every day that scares you

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts
Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours

Floss

Don’t waste your time on jealousy
Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind
The race is long and in the end, it’s only with yourself
Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults, if you succeed in doing this, tell me how
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements

Stretch

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.
The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives
Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t
Get plenty of calcium
Be kind to your knees
You’ll miss them when they’re gone

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t
Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t
Maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the ‘Funky Chicken’
On your 75th wedding anniversary
Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much
Or berate yourself either
Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can
Don’t be afraid of it or what other people think of it
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own
Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your own living room
Read the directions even if you don’t follow them
Do not read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good
Be nice to your siblings, they’re your best link to your past
And the people most likely to stick with you in the future

Understand that friends come and go
But a precious few, who should hold on

Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle
For as the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young
Live in New York City once but leave before it makes you hard
Live in northern California once but leave before it makes you soft

Travel

Accept certain inalienable truths
Prices will rise, politicians will philander, you, too, will get old
And when you do, you’ll fantasize that when you were young
Prices were reasonable, politicians were noble
And children respected their elders

Respect your elders

Don’t expect anyone else to support you
Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse
But you never know when either one might run out

Don’t mess too much with your hair
Or by the time you’re 40 it will look 85

Be careful whose advice you buy but be patient with those who supply it
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past
From the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts
And recycling it for more than it’s worth

But trust me on the sunscreen

    I’ve felt like that for a while. It’s not that fun and you feel bad about it, but still don’t make anything of it. At least for me. I hope you get inspiration again soon. Until then, like what Alessandra said… baby steps. Be well.
