So, we've been a bit quiet of late. Real life seems to have taken over and we've both been super-busy with work, whilst also trying to find the time to eat/sleep/socialise/exercise/have some kind of life. To give you an update...
This week I've...
Found a new fast-food love. I sampled Chilangos, a Mexican themed restaurant chain in London, for the first time and now can't stop thinking about it!
Been trying not to look at my iPhone/iPad so much. Apparently iPad neck is on the rise and, not only does looking down so much cause major back probs, it also cause lots of wrinkles!
Trying to up the anti in the healthy stakes. I've been prepping some super tasty dinners from the Hemsley Hemsley cookbook, amping things up in the juice stakes and monitoring my fitness through a wearable fitness band for the first time ever.
Not been wearing tights (well, at least one day without them) for the first time in what seems like forever and it feels awesome. Must up my fake tan game.
Planning a holiday. I didn't get Glastonbury tickets for the first time in six years. Mega sobs. To make me feel better, I'm planning a trip to Italy instead.
This week I've realised...
It's good to talk. I can easily demolish 3GB's worth of data a month but those 1,000's of minutes on my phone contract remain relatively untouched. I've made an effort this week to try and give my loved ones a tinkle. Facebook, What's app and text messages can't put a smile on your face and fire in your belly like a good chin wag with your friend. Brace yourself for cackling.
Since Christmas we haven't been doing our bi monthly food shops with Ocado. There hasn't been a real reason why, other than a few weekends away and general disorganisation. The result has been quite costly. Queue Sushi lunches and trips to Waitrose after work that easily add up to £40 a time. After getting knocked off of the health kick at Easter, my feet are firmly back on the wagon and the healthiest Ocado food order is being prepared as we speak.
So I'm forever writing lists at work but tend to neglect the same organisation at home. In a bid to feel more organised I now have a to do list for home too. One of which includes sorting through my shoe collection. Imagine a cupboard full of shoes at the bottom, in a huge pile. Disgraceful, I know.
Most of my disposable income is easily frittered away on food and drink. I'll happily buy a meal out for two, but splashing out to get the lamp stands you like in John Lewis? No, no. It's time to invest more money into items that last longer than a minute on the lips. There seems to be a 'trying to be organised' theme running here?
Like HR I am making more of an effort to disconnect from my mobile/ipad/laptop. I also would like to read more, sadly reading on public transport makes me nauseous, but before bed definitely.
