I had a really good day today!
- Smashed my workout at P.T. (this was the 3rd workout day in a row and I should have been very tired/ underperforming). I really struggled with my usual weights for pull day at the gym yesterday… but today’s legs day was not bad at all so I am mighty proud!
- 3rd day on the trot with new mindful eating habits and I have managed to keep my calorie intake within 1400cals without feeling too deprived. I have really struggled with self-control and overeating these last few months (which has resulted in the reappearance of my double chin and rotund belly), so 3 consecutive days of self-control is something I am really proud of! Listening to the hypnotherapy track provided by the “well-being lady” at work has also helped with reprogramming my subconscious mind to believe that I only need 3 small meals a day. Eat till you are full then stop. Eat till you are fuelled then stop. Do not feed your head hunger. Do not clean up the plate. Do not treat your stomach like a rubbish bin.
- My iPhone screen was smashed by an 8kg dumbbell that rolled off a step and directly onto the phone on Wednesday. I was devastated, especially since the iPhone 8 cost me a pretty penny and is less than 2 years old! I was convinced that I did not purchase AppleCare for it and had mentally prepared myself to fork out £150 for its repair. Thankfully, the Apple genius who served me at the store today found out that my phone has indeed been insured and so I only needed to pay an excess of £25!! I was made up! The unexpected necessary expense was causing me a load of mental anguish so this little surprise made me feel very blessed! Now, I have a new phone screen without having to break the bank, and have in fact ensured that the initial costs of purchasing AppleCare have been made worthwhile!
- As I walked past the O2 shop in town today, I decided to pop in to discuss options for my mobile SIM plan. It has been something that I have been meaning to do but have struggled to find time and motivation to sort out… however, my current data plan only provides me with 500MB of cell data which is wholly insufficient! Every alternate month, I find myself having no data left to use and have to “ride it out” for a week or so until the new month’s data allowance commences. It has been doing my head in! Anyway, I met a really lovely server at the O2 store today called Ava who recommended a plan change such that I now get 4GB of data, unlimited texts and phone calls for essentially the same monthly payments!! It also helps that she was super young, energetic and friendly, and we enjoyed a really nice chat about stuff unrelated to my mobile contract. She made my day yet again by commenting that I did not look old enough to be my age! Haha!
Superb days like that don’t come by often enough… so I want to make sure I document it and remember the little blessings that I have enjoyed today!
Thank you Lord.
