Yey to the sun! Finally it felt like summer had arrived here last week. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were particularly amazing days, I even have a bit of a sun tan! I was especially glad of the pick me up as my week had started off in less fabulous fashion when I came down with a tummy bug. Thankfully it only lasted 24 hours and by Tuesday I was starting to pick back up again. It did mean that my eats have been a little strange, but I still managed a few regular tasty meals…

When I was feeling poorly all I could stomach was baby biscuits and corn cakes!

Move

  • Monday – Rest
  • Tuesday – Rest
  • Wednesday – Metafit / 30 minute walk
  • Thursday – Yoga
  • Friday – Metafit
  • Saturday – Rest
  • Sunday – 3.5 mile run

I decided to be brave and take my mat out into our communal garden to do some yoga in the sun! I love doing yoga outside and I don’t think any of my neighbours were that bothered. I also sat and painted my nails out there as well – all as part of my ‘me’ day. I would have liked to have got in an extra run during the week, and parkrun yesterday but James was poorly at the back end of the week and I was still trying to pull myself together. Excuses I know, but I am off out for my 3.5 miler this morning, eek!

Wear

Well I certainly don’t get to wear shorts that often so I thought I’d might as well make the most of the heat and get my legs out!

On Thursday I had my long awaited ‘me’ day which involved some biz planning (exciting stuff coming!), this fantastically relaxing bath, lots of smoothies and fresh fruit, painting my nails, sun bathing and yoga in the garden. Not a bad day at all! Also…

Buying myself some peonies and watching them bloom // wine and chatter with my mama friends // taking Finley to the park // not getting sunburned but getting a light tan instead // my aunt and uncle visiting // feeling excited (if slightly overwhelmed) with all my biz plans

My week has definitely been up and down with sickness, a misbehaving Mac computer and feeling a little more vulnerable to comparison issues (this often comes up for me when I start dreaming big, topic for another post me thinks) next to all the things on my Love list. I thought Mercury Retrograde was over! ;-) 

How has your week been? Have you been able to enjoy the sun shine? When was the last time you had a ‘me’ day?

    I love sitting outside on the grass when the weather is nice and warm. We’ve had several great days just lately, but the back end of last week for us was filled with thunderstorms! My shorts and dresses have also been out on the days that it was warm. Can’t wait for Summer to hit us fully now!

      I thought we were going to get thunderstorms but nothing appeared, I quite like them so I was (strangely) disappointed! Fingers crossed for a heat wave :-)

    Glad you got time for your “me” day – outdoor yoga sounds awesome, I need to brave taking my mat down to my shared garden! Hope you’re feeling better now – I think your eats look awesome, I am on my third day of liquids only after having an impacted wisdom tooth out on Friday and am missing chewing so much more than I thought I would! x

      It’s so lovely to do it out in the fresh air! Hope your mouth is feeling better by now, I know when I had mine done I was poorly for a while!

    Looking summery!
    I bought some fab shorts from White Stuff (helter skelter)- they go to the knee which I much prefer- just bought a second pair in the hope I will get to wear them a bit! :)

      I do prefer longer shorts, I saw a few in the shops yesterday, I think if the weather picks up again I’ll get them!

    I was going to do yoga in my garden last week when it was nice- I’m definitely doing it next time!

    I’ve struggled many times with comparing myself to others (one reason I’m not on facebook, ha!). It’s so self-defeating and exhausting. I try to remember (cheesy, but it helps me): don’t compare yourself to others. Compare yourself to the person from yesterday.

    Your summer outfit looks fab! I haven’t worn shorts for about 8 years. I’m trying to work on my body image and one goal is to wear a pair this summer! Too young to have given up on them just yet. I’ve got my eye on a pair of scalloped shorts.

      I think that is a great way to think about it, if you are making progress yourself that is all that matters! Ooh get yourself in those shorts lady! Scalloped ones sound lush, I’m sure you’ll look amazing!

    Ah this is when I start to miss having a garden! We live in a flat now and so no garden :( Your ‘me’ say sounds perfect. I’ve booked a spa day on my own in two weeks’ time after my exam and I can’t wait! Hope you’re feeling better :) x

      Ooh I bet you can’t wait for that! I’d rather have a private garden but I am glad we have a communal one at least :-)

    Ahh the sunshine is just wonderful isn’t it? I love taking Alfie for walks without a coat and just feeling the warmth. So lovely and refreshing. And yes it’s SO nice to be in shorts!!
    I bet doing yoga outside was so blissful :-)

      It’s so lovely feeling the sun on your skin after so many months are spent wrapped up warm!

    I can’t believe how lovely it is to have a bit of grass of my own now the sunshine is making an appearance! Your ‘me’ day sounds fabulous and very deserved.
