Good evening guys!
It’s Sunday evening, and I’m lying on my bed, wrapped up in a quilt, with a full stomach from the gammon we just had. It’s times like this when I think about how lucky I am to have a warm bed, and a nice meal on the table. I would really like to do more for people who aren’t as lucky, but at the age of 15, I’m stuck for ideas of what I can do. If anyone has any ideas, please do let me know.
So. Today marks the end of the first weekend – and also the first week! – of 2017! Overall, it’s been a pretty successful week. I spent the first half relaxing at home, and out with my friends, and the second half returning back to school (which wasn’t all THAT bad), where I received some good grades back from my mocks.
It could’ve gone a hell of a lot worse.
And now this weekend has also been nice. It’s been quiet, and chilled – but nice. Yesterday, I was at the stables for the morning. I had an hour’s riding lesson, then helped out a bit, and then watched my sister’s riding lesson. How I WISH I could have a horse. Like, YES, I know they’re a LOT of work. Maybe when I’m older, yeah!?
I spent yesterday afternoon at home, and then after dinner went out for a walk with my Dad, my brother and my sister. Our whole family are on a scheme to get fit. I’ve tried many times before, and utterly failed. But this time’s different. I don’t want to lose weight. I just want to get fit. And feel healthier. Because at the moment I feel rubbish, and crap, and a lot of it is to do with the lack of exercise and the fat I’m consuming. Hopefully, with that, will come a bit of flab off the thighs and a more toned stomach – but the main goal is to feel happier and healthier.
Hence the new purchase from today. I’ve just ordered a Teal Fitbit Alta, which should arrive tomorrow. I’m very excited to get involved with my family and friends by seeing who can make the most steps a day! Considering I’m a VERY competitive person, it’s a good way to get me motivated!
Okay, so now onto today. This morning I went to Church, which was good. One of my auntie’s friends, who’s a teacher at a school nearby, and helps run the youth group which I help out with, told me something which made me think. She said it was good to see me looking so well, and happy. She knows about the struggles I’ve been facing, and what I’ve had to deal with in the last year. When I first started having panic attacks, (wow, what a long time ago it seems), I had one at her house. This was in the early stages when I was terrified, and had no idea what to do other than cry, and try not to die. But she calmly helped me. As a teacher, she says there are a lot of girls in her girls school which have them, and so she’s used to helping deal with them. But anyway, back to the point. It was LOVELY to hear some-one say that. I may NOT be the happiest inside, but for someone to take the time to notice, and comment, means a lot. And it took me aback for a minute while I had a think – that I AM happier. Like not completely. And some days I’m still right back down in the pits. But majorly, compared to this time last year, it’s a huge improvement.
So Church was good. This afternoon, I went to Hyde Park with my family. For a walk. Because we’re trying to be more active hahaha. We’ll see how that goes. But it was really lovely.
I’m learning (slowly) that I actually ENJOY spending time with my family! I wish it hadn’t taken me this long to realise, that I like sitting and chatting to them, and not always locking myself in my room! 😀
That’s basically an update of my weekend.
Obviously these posts aren’t as interesting to you guys, but I do enjoy writing them. And I’m also SO BAD at coming up with new content.
So yar. If you don’t like these posts just don’t read them, and wait until I actually post something decent on my blog…which will hopefully be soon!!
What have you guys done this weekend?
Love, Em x
