Urgh, it’s been a minute. I am almost so tired of starting blogs with “I’m sorry I’ve been quiet” because that’s practically all I’m doing lately. So, I’m sorry I’ve been quiet, I needed a timeout.
So much has happened since we last spoke in April. I underwent a massive social media detox, uninstalled apps and can’t actually remember when last I scrolled through Facebook for fun. As a social media manager by trade, I understand the irony of my last statement – the entire point of social media is fun, right? Meh, not all the time.
Anyway, I found that by not allowing myself to get angered by what was happening on social media, I was less anxious. It’s crazy, but I would get very upset by what was being shared on social media – especially because it was being shared by friends. I know that people have different opinions, but yours is always right. Plus, I really couldn’t keep losing friends because I’d voice my unwavering opinions too. If there is one thing I am very good at, it’s being stubborn about my beliefs (but don’t dare let Paul know I admitted that).
Another thing that’s happened since we last spoke is that I’ve stopped taking antidepressants. Yes, I know… what was I thinking? Well, I was thinking that being depressed about weight gain wasn’t worth being able to say that I was medicated. I am, however, on my third week of taking CBD Tincture oil on a daily basis which is already helping me greatly. I’ll be talking about this in more detail soon!
I have also adopted a vegetarian, bordering on a vegan lifestyle. I’ve been really distraught about eating animals for a long time and decided that it was time to put down the chicken breast. To be honest, it’s been the best decision I’ve made for my health and the well-being of the planet. I would like to speak about this a lot more as well in the coming months because I do believe that it is important to be educated on the effects of the farming industry.
Finally, I’m very happy to report that I am down 3kgs as of this morning. This is only in the past 2-weeks, but it does mean that the process has FINALLY started again. To say that I am beyond thrilled is an understatement, I’m so ready for this journey again.
Thanks for tuning in, fam. I know that this is long overdue, but it is shortened version of what’s been happening in my life. I am going to be blogging more regularly again, and hope you tune in too!
Until next time.
