Sunday Sit Down Series #2

Welcome to week two of the Sunday Sit Down Series as Sundays are a more chilled out part of my week I wanted to start a Series where I can reflect on the past week.

If you haven’t read week one of the series then go check it out and find out what I’ll be talking about and discussing throughout the series.

Let’s get started!

Health, wellbeing and fitness

This week I’ve been walking, woohoo! I’ve only managed two days of over 10,000 steps but again this is a massive improvement, as I’m a huge fan of driving everywhere – I used to live literally around the corner from the kid’s school and still drove them – yes it probably took me more time getting them into the car than it would have to walk them around!

I’m still keeping up with my Vitamins and Minerals and yes I still see a massive improvement in my mood and even though my sleep is still all over the place, I’m not as tired as I have been throughout the day. It’s fantastic!

Still to work on are, My eating habits, these are still a bit of a mess so I need to start setting some alarms I think to tell me when to eat for a while. Sleep, I’m getting roughly 5-6 hours of disturbed sleep a night (or morning if you count the fact I don’t get to bed until gone midnight).

Social Media

This week I’ve not seen much of Social Media for the last part of the week, I mean I’ve been on but not had the chance to catch up with much. I’ve got involved in a couple of Twitter chats since my last Sunday Sit Down, which I found rather fun and loved the interaction.

I’ve not caught up with everyone’s blogs that I wanted to read and I’ve also not been able to do much self-promotion as I haven’t quite figured out Buffer yet, it seems to work on the laptop but won’t schedule anything from my phone, and as I’ve been mainly “phone bound” this week it’s been a pain in the arse, to say the least!

Blog

My Blog I’m a little bit gutted that I haven’t managed to get done what I wanted with my content this week, I’ve literally just not had the time or energy. My aim is to get three posts out a week as a minimum, I have my brain dumps done, I have partly completed drafts but I haven’t had much internet to carry on playing around with those.

Goal Review

Taking my own photos, that would be a no. I’ve taken photo’s this week but for my blog… NO! As before, I’ve literally had no time for blog life this week.

My budget didn’t last long haha! It’s all for a good reason though so I’m not pissed at myself for this at all. I’ll tell you further down as to why I’m not as gutted as I maybe should be about screwing up all my goals this week.

I am excited about some courses I’ve got lined up though, I’ve signed up for some courses that will help me out with my blogging experience, these should help me with Social Media, Productivity, Blog-Life balance etc and it’s probably good to do these now while I’m fairly new to my blog to help me and you get a better experience from my blog.

My Week Overall

This week has been Fantastic, you may be looking at this now thinking – How exactly has it been fantastic when you’ve got nothing done, your behind on your goals and basically been a hermit online all week – Well, I’ll tell you!

I signed for my house and got the keys this week and that is the most fantastic thing to have come out of this week or this year possibly. If you know a bit about me then you’ll know that I (and my five kids) have spent since the end of January living with “The Mother”, some may be wondering why I hyphenated and add italics to that and I will tell you all about it in another post in the future, for now, I don’t have time to go into it. sorry!

As for my onwards journey, things may still be a little slow for the time being with all my online activities as I will be working on the house and getting moved in hopefully by the end of next week. I hope you can all bear with me and I apologise now if I don’t manage to get round to all comments and replies etc over the next week or two, I don’t ignore you, I will catch up with everything as soon as I can.

I am so overly excited to get the house sorted so that I can finally get all my stuff out of storage and the kids can get all their clothes, toys etc back and get back to being their happy little selves! It’s been no fun, we’ve lived out of bags (only clothes & all Winter one’s at that) for the past three months, it’s going to be like Christmas opening all our boxes and seeing all the things we’ve forgotten about over the past months (the kids Christmas prezzies all got packed up pretty much as they opened them, so yea will definitely be Christmas again for them)! haha.

I’d just like to take this time to Thank Everyone who has stuck with me through the crappiness over the past few months and I promise I’ll be giving a lot more interaction as the months’ progress and upping my content as soon as I can, which is a lot closer now!

Until Next Time.

Much Love

Laura xx

      Thank you Bexa! 💕. My dad is painting it up this week, waiting on new carpets and then can finally get our things out of storage. 🦋 I’m working on more days of 10k and hopefully can keep up with it daily! 🌹 xx
