January was relentless. First proper full-time job, early rises, future thoughts, family emergencies and travelling.
I tried the 14-day Healthy Living Challenge January 1st – 14th. It maybe wasn’t the best time to try to implement big healthy changes because I started work on the 5th, but it didn’t go too badly. Following along with Celes’ daily challenges provided a lot to think about in terms of having a healthy relationship with food and self-image and the difference between ideal routines and what actually ends up happening. One of the only things I feel I’ve accomplished from it, and that’s stuck since, has been managing to do some yoga every day. My other continuous goals keep getting thrashed by life.
I flew alone and for the first time since a school trip. Nothing quite beats discovering a mild fear of flying during take-off; once I’d stopped crying when we were in the air things really improved… Big thanks go to Grant the Irish prison security guard for offering to hold my hand during descent on the return flight – I didn’t take you up on the offer, Grant, but wherever you are, good karma is coming your way. I’m flying again at the end of the month, so hoping things go better this time.
Sadly not the greatest picture, but definitely a rare moment to photograph.
I don’t even know why I took this! I suppose tall skyscrapers are pretty non-existant in Edinburgh. London in the cold air was brisk, sleek and busy – tall office buildings just epitomise it.
Helix, my absolute favourite new show from last year, has returned with a vengeance and is again not for the faint-hearted. Hats off to the writers who have managed to turn the ice-filled bleak desolation of the first season into a warm and jungley Lost-style cultish explosion of yellow goo. Definitely worth checking out.
Just trying to take each day as it comes.
