2016 has been a bizarre year and I can’t quite believe that it’s coming to an end already.
I thought I’d write a short blog post filling you all in and just making sure you’re all updated before 2017 begins. I feel like I’ve been slacking lately with my blog posts (and my YouTube channel, and updating my social media accounts etc.) but I’ve honestly just been so busy it is unreal. For those of you who watched my ‘Snapmas’ daily for the month of December: You will know just how hectic life has been for me lately and I’ve genuinely not had a minute to myself.
In 2016 I got stung by a jellyfish and lived to tell the tale, fell off a jet ski way out past the restricted area I was meant to stay in, I discovered I had a love for red onion, I started college and I got a Bengal cat and named him Milo. Apart from that, nothing much has happened this year; everything that did happen that was exciting or memorable I will have wrote about it previously on my blog.
I used to have a schedule for my blog and I would post 3 times a week, on dedicated days, every single week. I done away with that and decided just to post whenever I had the chance or whenever an idea popped in to my head. Perhaps in 2017 I may go back to having a schedule and posting on certain days again as I believe this helped to keep me motivated and kept me on track. What do you think guys?
I plan on writing a post about things I’d like to achieve in 2017 or maybe a ‘bucket list’ style post but we will see what happens. I just wanted to let you all know that I’m still alive and kicking and that you should expect to see lots more of me in 2017.
Just before I love you and leave you: Today I went to the gym and if you’re a regular reader of my blog then you will know how much of a fitness fanatic I was for the majority of the year. I took some time off and fell away from the gym and exercising and all that jazz completely. Today, I decided I wanted to go back, it couldn’t be so hard right? Wrong. I walked in to the gym expecting to feel some sort of comfort at being back but I just felt so out of place. I kept looking around at other people doing their thing and feeling like a spare part. I felt like such a fool. I was too anxious to go on all of the equipment that I used to use 3/4 times a week, I couldn’t even go in to parts of the room that I used to workout in, it was just such an odd feeling. I felt so bad about myself and gave myself such a hard time that I didn’t stay long and went home. I tried. I went along and I did try. In 2017 one of my biggest goals is to get myself back to the gym and go as regularly as possible. The gym was one of my greatest therapies and it’s vital to me that I go back.
Anyway, lovelies, I said I was going to keep this one short & sweet. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas & have an excellent New Year!
