I am 1 3rd of the way through my assignment for college. I will get the second journal entry written later this afternoon, and if I feel up to it I may even finish it this evening, it all depends on how tired I feel though, so now that I am 1 3rd of the way there, it means I can actually go into work today, and not be stressing out about getting my work done!
Yay, so glad about that!
I love it when my stress level is down!
So I’ve started to be serious about exercising. I have a treadmill, and I need to start using it regularly.
So today I decided, I will make a start. I got on the treadmill twice. I did 10 minutes at a time. I also have an apple watch, and I am able to track my time and distance and speed on it.
I am happy with the result. I feel brilliant and I am impressed with the speed I was able to go at.
If I can keep this trend up, maybe I can really tone up my body. Plus I’ll become super fit. I wont do 7 days a week on it, but I intend to do at least 5 days a week on the treadmill. I will take a break at the weekends as I am not home usually on weekends.
They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form. I hope I can make this a permanent thing and form a new habit of using it regularly.
I’d like to wish all of you a very happy fathers day!
I hope everyone had a nice fathers day today, and if you still have your dad in your life, I hope he has a nice day too. For those who dont, I hope you can remember him with fondness and that you have many happy memories of spending time with him throughout the years.
As for me, my dad is still here with me, he had a nice day, I gave him a card with some money in it, and we had a family dinner with all of us myself, my sister, mom and my dad and my sisters two kids all together. It was very special.
I am very happy we got to make lots of happy memories today. It felt nice to be able to do that. My dad was very happy with his gifts, and I think he felt appreciated and special on his special day.
I have to tackle an assignment for college but I really have no mind to do it!
I really really dont want to do it! I am procrastinating bigtime!
I probably wont end up doing it today. I might do a 3rd of it today we’ll see. I have 3 journal entries to write. I know once I start writing the words will flow, at least I am hoping they will anyway. But its just getting started!
This is the last one that I have to do, and I’ve actually had weeks to do it but I didnt get to it!
I am soooo baaaad!
But hoping I can get it done before tuesday, its not due in until friday but I do want it handed in a few days before its actually due to be handed in.
Fingers crossed I can make a start on it soon!

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment, it’s called pimped and it’s by Samantha Owens. It’s a really really good read and I would highly recommend it.
It’s a non-fiction book, a memoir, a true life story.
The thing is this poor teenager had to go through our shocking, really shocking. But they are all to relate able to me some of them at least especially the sexual abuse. Since I was abused not in the same way but in a similar way. I mean I wasn’t pimped out to men, it wasn’t that sort of abuse, but I was raped and so I can relate to what she went through in that way.
If you’re not easily triggered, and you enjoy true stories, I would highly recommend this book to you.
It’s available on audible and probably in kindle format as well.
Remember I did a presentation a few weeks ago on schizophrenia for college? Well my results are in. I got 75 percent. That’s a fantastic result. Anything over 70 is a first class honour. I am ecstatic. Thrills to bits. I cant believe I got such a great result. The feedback I got was awesome too. Not many people in the class got a very high mark, so I am so happy that I did. I must have made an impression. I know a lot of the class liked the way I presented. They all said I was good and had a good speaking voice and presented the topic clearly and simply. I’m absolutely delighted with the two grades I’ve gotten yesterday and today. That’s is two parts of my module completed now. I got a 60 on my article review and a 75 on my presentation. One more to go and I will hand that in next week, I wont have the result for a few weeks though after I hand in the journal of learning. Once I get my result the 3 parts of the module will be put together and then an overalll grade will be given. Anyway. Just so happy right now. It’s a real confidence boost.
I decided I wont go to slimming world this week. I just know I am going to be up, and I don’t want to deal with that. I’d rather not go. I’d rather wait until next week, work on losing the little I have gained, and then go in with a loss next week.
I think that’s wise. I am just not brave enough to deal with gaining the weight. I cant take that disappointment. I don’t want to step on the scales and for them to tell me you’ve gained. I know I’ve been eating badly, I don’t need to have someone else tell me that.
So I’ll give it a skip this week. I texted my PA to tell her, and I texted my slimming world consultant to book the night off.
It means tomorrow I don’t have anything on. I can just relax. Which is what I need as I am totally wiped out.
