Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. What a week it’s been with this weather! I think we’ve had it all up here in the North East. I’ve loved the glorious sunshine and was lucky to miss getting caught outside in one of the most spectacular electrical storms I’ve ever seen. Fin and I were at a friends house and just about to walk home when we heard a rumble of thunder. We stayed at her house and enjoyed views of amazing lightening. I think our area was lucky as some nearby villages reported broken windscreens due to golf ball sized hail stones! Other than enjoying the good weather (although I am totally over the sweaty hot nights!), I’ve been under the weather unfortunately. I’ve picked up a horrid head cold and I’m really feeling it this time. It’s been lots of soup and rest towards the back end of the week, but before that I enjoyed some lovely eats!

Well not a lot at all this week! I did walk for about 2 hours in total on Wednesday (and got a nice tan in the process!) and did some yoga at home. My running has completely gone out of the window with feeling poorly so I feel like I’ll be starting again almost from scratch next week which sucks. I’m sure I’ll pick it up again quickly though! In other news, today is James first race, the Great North 10k, so I’m pulling myself together to be able to go with him, excited for him!

Wear

I am totally ditching my Wear this week, I’ve been in shorts and vest tops or I’ve looked too rough to even consider taking a pic! I’ll have to make next week’s a good one!

I mentioned the Daily Greatness Journal in my goals post earlier in the week and in my newsletter. It’s been the perfect tool for giving me some half-way through the year refocusing! Also…

Meeting up with my friends and their babas for afternoon lunch // walks in the sunshine // being ill reminding me how good it is to be well (now hows that for a reframe!) // delivering some workshops on positive self talk in a school on Monday // buy one get one half price at Holland and Barrett (and stocking up on immune boosters!)

    Really hope you feel better soon Laura, how rubbish to be ill in this hot weather (especially the sticky nights!).

    Hope you’re feeling better now! Those protein pancakes look so good. I had a horrible stomach bug earlier in the week – it was more annoying than anything else as I’m too busy to be ill at the moment but thankfully felt better after a few days of sticking to eating bread, crackers and basically only plain boring beige food which is not my usual diet at all! x

    To have a cold in this hot weather truly sucks I know from experience. Hope you’re doing better now!

    I have ditched my wear as well as my makeup this week. Just too hot to care, I’m afraid.

    Fortunately my gym has air conditioning so I have managed to sneak in a few workouts this week.

    Have a great Sunday,

    Judy

    Aw having a cold when it is hot is just horrible as it adds to the stuffy feeling- I hope you feel better now.
    We had a crazy storm on Friday/ Saturday morning (about 1/2 am I think)- the lightning flashes were so frequent it was like camera flashes going off, and the thunder was shaking things in the house- it was like being in a Florida storm!
    I hope James enjoyed his race.

    I am all about natural vitamin c when unwell, I got a bad bout of hay fever so been downing the nettle iced tea, turmeric and ginger and taking some chill time and trying not to be afraid of going outside!!

    We haven’t had any thunderstorms which has been both a relief (as it really unsettles Alfie) and disappointment as I always enjoy a good storm. But wow golf ball sized hailstones – how cool (sort of?).
    Sorry to hear your under the weather, hope you feel better soon! I’m so grumpy when I’m ill, but then I do also enjoy that I can just watch TV all day, justified by my sickness hehe.

    I couldn’t deal with that hot weather- it was just uncomfortable. We had to buy a fan as we couldn’t sleep!
