Hopefully this will be the last time we have to leave a lockdown. As we have been edging into winter it's certainly felt harder this time round. But now we have alot more to look forward to and to be more optimistic. Enough with this now.
I feel that the balance between lifting restrictions and the actual infection rate should be detached. I think that as a nation, need to just live with COVID-19. Events need to go on! Yes, wear a face mask!
I'm already looking at the New Year. As you may or may not know, I have really stepped up my fitness in the 2nd half of this year. I went on a cutting diet in the summer and did lose quite a bit of weight, since then I have been eating enough to maintain my fat and muscle levels. Now I know that all of this doesn't seem that important to the average person. I know for a fact currently that weight training (in my situation) helps with the strengthening of my spine and joints. Ok, I'm going on a little..... In the New Year I really want to focus on my fitness. I have been going early mornings for quite a while now and Im finding that it really works for me and my life style. I would like to become as lean as I possibly can. See, a not to unrealistic goal. Secondly, I want to manage my work better and make sure I have time to take for myself. In fact, writing blog posts will be one of those moments of having "me" time. I feel like its a way for me to express myself better. No one needs to read these but at least I could look back at them in a years time and reflect. Kind of like an online diary... So there you have it! Fitness and Blog writing. Thats what I have on the New Years Resolution list already... Already looking forward to battling the new gym goers....
Finally some white stuff before Christmas. I honestly was waiting for the day that I could head out on the snowy roads to collect the tree. Got myself a 7ft tree and it fit in the car ok. So theres a small nursery that I go to each year to get the tree. I prefer supporting the smaller businesses as there are many big players around. They even wrapped it up for me in a like a tree stocking. Great service! Its been a very wired kind of time for me recently and Ive defiantly needed to focus on Christmas. This year I am particularly festive, I really want to focus on friend and family more than ever. Ive even nearly completed my shopping! You would probably catch me running round on Christmas Eve getting the last few. This year I'm even hosting drinks and food at my place am I'm so excited about it. Maybe I could even give the Elf outfit a spin again... or maybe not. So I will be on the radio every Friday through the festive period, but I wont be playing Christmas tunes. I hear enough in the office anyways :) Our family keeps growing every year so its harder and harder to get us all together but I have even been in touch with my cousins to meet up with them too!! I will have another post before Christmas. So get the shopping done and Ill speak to you soon!!
I just wanted to take a moment to write on my blog. So its been nearly a week since the EU Referendum and so much has happened. Cameron has stepped down, England are out of the Euros, Farages huge out burst in the EU parliament and whats happening to Jeremy Corbyn? So the results are the results and I believe that it was a fair vote, every person had a chance to vote and an online petition with hackers is not going to change that. Lets all grow up as a country and move on from all of this. We need to be serious about the state of affair in the future. Im sure once the whole government calm down things will be just as smooth as normal. I watched some of the house of parliament footage today and I feel somewhat embarrassed by the way the MPs are acting. There was a lot of booing and speaking over one another which I feel is so childish. With the Euros, I don't really have an interest in football and i didn't watch the match vs Iceland. Apparently it was awful but wouldn't that be the sound of all of the disappointed fans..... Perhaps the hooligans (a small minority I know) can do some growing up before we play again. On a different note, I watched panorama on the Orlando Shooting and there is also a 15 min documentary done but Stacey Dooley. After having watched those and hearing from the people involved it made me realise what a horrific tragedy it was. Love always Wins!
