I am also an anxious person who is sometimes prone to depression. For those of you who have read my post about gaining weight and how I vowed I would not crash diet, well that has been going super well. I lost some weight, at a slow steady pace and I am eating better. Just like what I wrote in that post, I am doing this one day at a time, one pound at a time. I wanted to clear that up because I don't want anyone to get the impression that I am happy in my own skin because that is not true.
The funny thing in all of this is that I never ate so much in my life. I am just eating better things! In fact, I have become obsessed with personal fitness and food! I work out at least 5-6 times a week. If I am not at the pool swimming (I even found indoor swimming pools near my house that I can go to when the weather gets cold) I am jogging or walking or doing something active! Obviously, this new found hobby has affected my blogging and my personal life.
Whenever I was stressed or anxious or depressed, I would cocoon myself in front of my computer or TV and would just gorge on junk food. Now, I go out and I work off all that shit and I feel much, much better. In fact, someone can come to my face and tell me to fuck off and I would just smile at them!
So, my apologies for being a little distant with some of my close friends, family and with this blog. It is not because I wasn't thinking about you or that there is something REALLY wrong. I have had a lot of ups and downs this month - which I do not want to get into here but overall, I am happy and things could have been much, much worse. I am just learning to balance being a mom, a blogger, holding down a full-time job, a wife, and getting some much needed Sylvie workout exercising time in there too! It's nice to put myself first and have some me-time. It is amazing what a good workout can do for self-esteem and stress! I am just learning to juggle everything and ask that you be patient with me!
Now, for the addition to my 2016 wish list: There is an article of clothing that popped up on social media from Necessary Evil that sparked my interest and I think some of you would appreciate. My funds are kinda low at the moment with Philip's birthday approaching AND back to school shopping,I don't really have much disposable income at this time. This is definitely on my radar and I will be buying it sometime in the near future. I don't know if buying this online would be worth it for me (shipping fees, UK conversion rates) but I may try scouring my local goth stores for it.
And if anyone of you buys this before me, just so you know, I will fly down there on my bat wings to steal it from you!
