A big warm welcome to week 17 of #fortheloveofBLOG, the weekly linky that I host with Claire from The Pramshed.
It feels like ages since I’ve ran this linky as we had a bit of a break and then I went on holiday last week. Big thanks to the lovely Sarah from Tammymum for filling in for me last week.
How are you all anyway? I hope you have been enjoying the last few weeks of the summer / school holidays?
I have to admit, I’m more than ready for Zak to get back to school on Monday and for us to get back into a routine so I can get some work done!
I’ve made the big step of joining the gym this week. I decided after writing my post about learning to love myself and my issues with body weight, that I would focus on achieving something with my fitness as opposed to focusing on losing weight. Your comments were so kind and it really helped knowing that I’m not the only one to struggle so thank you for that. There were some great suggestions about taking baby steps and doing a little something every day rather than focusing on those pesky scales each morning. So, the idea is that I get my fitness level to a point where I can run a 5k race initially. Even that would be a massive achievement for me!
September promises to hold lots of exciting things not least of all Blog On in Manchester! Anyone else going to that too?
Anyway enough rambling from me, lets get linking up. This week I’m linking up two posts
- A letter to my bonus baby – after losing two babies, Sophie is my bonus baby and watching her growing up so quickly has really stirred something up in me this week. I felt compelled to get it all out on the page. Apologies, it is a bit of an emosh one though.
- Dear Diary Salt Air and Sandy Kisses – The latest instalment in my dear diary series talking about our lovely weekend in Scarborough. If you haven’t ever been to that part of the coast then I would really recommend it. There is so much to do for families and it’s absolutely beautiful too.
I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week so lets get to it.
Here is the badge for this week’s linky – please make sure you add it to your posts and we will love you forever 🙂
