Day 282 a motivational start to the day and lovely walk in the sun ☀️☀️☀️

It’s the 2nd January 2021, about -1C and beautiful sunshine again today. It’s been the best start to a New Year. I had a motivational start……

I have to let go of the past and live life with no regrets. Other than that I think I have this sussed ♥️
I’m gonna be the same me but I’m going to try and loon at myself differently and be proud of who I’m becoming
In Brené Brown’s words, stay awkward, brave and kind

So a huge yes to all of the above. I’ve spent a lot of the holidays feeling antsy and nervous. If I’m honest I think I’ve always been unsettled over Christmas and particularly Hogmanay and New Year in the past. I don’t know if it’s been pressure to party or reflections on the year or of the future? I honestly don’t know. Other than Grandad dying on Christmas Day 1984, nothing bad has ever happened around these times. It’s just not my favourite time of the year for some reason. Anyway, we are now back to the anonymity of January and I feel like I can plod back on with my life.

Don’t tell anyone but I actually logged my breakfast into My Fitness Pal this morning. No one was more shocked than me. It wasn’t the plan, I just did it. Not shouting it from the rooftops, just writing it in my wee blog which no one will see so it’s fine 🤷🏻‍♀️😬🤣

Now this is another toughie…… gonna have to work on this one!
Eat healthy food and love your body

(I’m reading this back before I publish and this is meant to say “move your body”… I typed “love”… just gonna leave that there!)
Claire suggested we go out a big walk while the football was on
It’s another lovely day!
(Calaidh is sore from her big walk at the beach yesterday so having a rest today)
I made Claire test the ice!!
She took a close up of the ice
We went to Nosh in Barmill and Claire bought us a cuppa and a lovely bit of salted caramel chocolate brownie

We went into Barmill Park and had our cuppa up at a picnic bench with a view over the park and a lovely wander round after our cuppa and up in to the old railway. I had no idea the railway track was actually still up there.

Sat up here and had coffee and tea and made the pups pose in the shade!
The girls exploring
She’s on the tracks!!

Wee frosty bit!

Almost home

The Rangers- Celtic new year derby was still on when I got home so I went for shower, did my osteopath exercises and sat writing this. Almost 12k steps so far today… it’s been a while…. my knee is sore but hey, it could be worse.

I have my feet up in front of the fire, my hair is drying naturally and I’m feeling pretty good. Settle down for the evening already and it’s only 3.50pm!! Be rude not to. Rangers may have won so someone is happy. 💙

There have been over 50,000 new cases of COVID-19 every day for the last 3 days… it’s the worst it’s been….

Stay safe everyone ☀️☀️☀️

  1. Great post today and love the wintry pics. Sorry to hear about your Grandad albeit a long time ago now. My Grandad, whose birthday was today 2nd Jan, died on Christmas Day 1986. Some coincidence there he?!? 😁
