Rather foolishly, I spent 3 out of the 4 weekends in November away from home. First a lovely jaunt up to Suffolk for Bonfire Night with Mr Hello’s family, then to our dear friends’ home in Ely, and last weekend for a girl’s trip to all the London Christmas backdrop shops.
It has been totally great, but needless to say, this last week I’ve been flipping exhausted. On Sunday evening this week, I had quite a bad episode of anxiety, which freaked me out enough to realise that it’s high time I started to take better care of myself.
I’ve got some extra weight to lose, terrible back pain to see to and sleep to catch up on. In my new job I essentially work 6 days a week, and it’s a pace I literally will be unable to keep up for long if I don’t make some serious changes soon.
Christmas is on its way, and over the two weeks break I get, I’m going to do my best to make a start on a healthy Sam in 2016.
I guess if I don’t do it, no one else will!
