Fresh air…

Don’t you just love it! We’ve had a lovely weekend out in the countryside sleeping under the stars in our ma-hoosive tent. We arrived at the campsite near Kingsbury Water Park early Friday evening and had to beat the rain to pitch the tent. 2 hours later we had finished setting up and the heavens opened. Luckily the rain proved to us that our tent is water tight! Hoorah! The rain didn’t stop at all on Saturday so whilst hubby was at the football and brother in law was catching up on his sleep, me and my sister watched a film on the dvd player. Oh yes, we go glamping not camping…ha ha..we even have carpet in our tent! We didn’t manage to do much walking on Saturday as the weather was totally crap, cold and wet and when you’ve only got jeans walking in fields, mud and the rain ain’t much fun. Luckily the weather on Sunday was lovely and the sun was shining so was able to dry off the tent and we all managed to get lots of fresh air. We’ve got about 8 weeks until we go away again so i’m looking forward to it already.

I’m still feeling fed up, I dont know why! I’m in a vicious cycle of feeling crap, eating shite and then feeling guilty about it then repeating the whole cycle again. I am annoying myself feeling like this so god knows what you lovely lot must think! I’ve read somewhere tonight that to make or break a habit you must persevere with something for 21 days. So, I’m going to aim to do some form of exercise for at least 21 days. I’m hoping to get out of the office and get walking. I need to. {sig}

    Glad you had a great time dispite the rain, we love camping.

    It’s so difficult to change your mood, I know that as I seem to struggle with depression from time to time, more often at the moment. I understand that the knock on effect can be huge and it’s hard to get out of it.

    Hope the 21 day thing works for you. xox

    The 21 days thing is true – it takes 21 days to lay down new neural pathways (I’ve done a lot of reading about this!), so keep at it, and I’m sure you’ll see a change. Good luck!
