Sourced Box September 2017 unboxing

In July I made the decision to start getting more healthy and that had to include cutting out 2 of my favourite snacky foods,chocolate and crisps.

For me crisps was my favourite thing to eat and I would be able to eat so many packs but it wasn’t doing me any favours, I was never a big chocolate lover but would eat enough of it.

I cut these 2 things from my diet as they were things I would go to the most if I was feeling a little peckish. I found it easier than I thought I would to not eat them but it made such a difference for me not to eat them, and now I don’t miss eating them.

Last month I wanted something to snack on but didn’t want to eat to many ‘unhealthy’ snacks. I knew of sourced box so decided to give it a try, I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy the food that comes in the box but was surprised that I really enjoyed most of it, there will obviously be stuff I’m not keen on but that’s ok.

I thought I would do an unboxing post of what is in my box for this month.

It’s been so long!

Hi everyone

So I’ve just realised that it has been 2 weeks since i last wrote a blog post, I need to get back into it, i spent this morning catching up on a weeks worth of blog posts from everyone because i haven’t been able to keep up to date with them.

I have been working loads and last week worked over 57 hours, so i was feeling pretty exhausted from that. The other thing which is probably the main thing that has stopped me from writing posts was me and my boyfriend of 8+ years splitting up, it effected me quite badly for a few weeks now and it was only a few days ago that i started feeling better about everything and realised i don’t need him to be happy. I’ve been getting intro my fitness, going out running regularly and doing workouts at home, this has improved my mood a lot.

I really want to get back to blogging more regularly as i enjoy it so much so thought i would start a blogging challenge so i can get back into writing posts that way, I’ve done the 30 day blogging challenge already so thought i would do the Harry Potter challenge this time. Posts for that will be starting tomorrow.

I look forward to getting back into blogging more and coming up with more blog post ideas.

 

Shopping haul

So yesterday I decided to go shopping as I wanted to get some new trainers,I had no intention of buying anything else but I got the trainers that I wanted and then ended up spending more money after that.

Because of this I decided to do a haul to show what I got.

Sports Direct

Nike Flex 2016 running trainers-£30

This was the reason I went shopping in the first place and like i said this was going to be the only thing that i bought. There were so many trainers to choose from but i seen these and wanted them instantly,i love the colours,and i went for a run using them and they are so  comfortable to wear.

TK Maxx

iPhone 7 sports sleeve-£5.99

I have one of these sleeves but can no longer use it as it was for the iPhone 5,so I needed a new one. I only went in TK Maxx to have a look what they had, I seen this and had to get it at such a good price and its pink.

HMV

Audio mixx play 1 wireless Bluetooth earphones-£12.99

I got these more for when I go running as i hate having wires flying around getting in my way, so these are perfect, and again there pink. I used them when i went running yesterday and they are brilliant, the sound quality is great and they connect up to my phone really quickly.

Superdrug

Rimmel make up was on 3 for 2 offer so i got the following as I’m getting low anyway

IMG_0391

Rimmel wake me up foundation-303 true nude-£8.99

Rimmel clear complexion setting powder-£3.99

Rimmel camouflage collection extra 3D lash mascara-£4.99

Well that’s all that I bought on my little shopping trip spent so much more money than i was planning on spending but i bought stuff that i needed/will use so can’t tell myself off too much for it.

 

 

Looking back on the past year!

A few days ago I was thinking back to this time last year and at that time I didn’t think I was going to be where I am today.

As I said before last year was a bad time for me mentally. I was suffering with depression and anxiety all due to stress at work. I nearly left my old job this time last year but I didn’t because I didn’t see what the job was actually doing to me. Everyone around me was telling me I needed to do something to help myself.

There was a few months that I felt better and more myself,but then in October the same feeling in my head came back again. I didn’t want to do anything,my moods were quite low most of the time and if I was feeling good it wouldn’t take long for that to change again, I didn’t want to be around people and if I went into a low mood I had to be by myself. It was when all this started again that I did do something and I applied for another job.

I started my new job in January and since then I have never felt better. I occasionally have moments of anxiety still but not at all like I did before.

I then decided to start this blog and I am so happy that I did because this has been the other thing that I needed to help me. I never really done anything for myself before and when I thought about blogging I couldn’t do it,but I have been doing it since January and I’m so glad I did as I have had something to concentrate my time on when I’m not at work and not doing other things. 

I have now got 226 followers on this blog and want to thank everyone for the support that they give,as it just gives me more encouragement to carry on blogging.
