What a blur last month was!
Overall, it was much better than June. The Ginger Hunk had his knee operated on a couple of weeks ago and is doing much better. It feels as though he has been on the couch for months. Well he has, (despite occasional resurfacing for a few exciting things like the doctor and surgery.)
#By the way I am not wearing a nurse outfit, nor does he have a bell, as a bloke at my gym suggested.
He can cook again (THANK GOODNESS). Cooking is not my forte which is not very wifely of me.
Work has been understanding and I have been able to spend a bit of time working from home to help him.
I have been super tired trying to fit everything in. Naps have been frequent. (So have headaches.)
On the writing point; it has been very busy.
I finished my three articles on El Nido, Boracay and freediving, and now they are in editors hot little hands, (or somewhere sitting in their inboxes) awaiting publishing. I will be writing a piece for International Living Magazine while I am in Bali, and I am due to finish another piece for Australian Family before I go. It feels to good to be getting work – the printed kind. This writing business seems to be a time game so you just have to keep putting yourself out there. I used to get all antsy and now I just hit the send button on a pitch and move right along.
In summer I plan to have a break from the articles to concentrate on my book, (watch this space).
On the blogging sphere, I am off to my first big super dooper blogging conference in two weeks! I am both scared and excited at the same time. When I started writing this blog I had a whole 300 visitors. Last month, the My Meow community hit over 1700 visitors. I was super excited, so thank you all for supporting me, and enjoying my writing. Be sure to like My Meow on Facebook too!
I have been on my F45 challenge, and made some considerable changes. I have had a couple of wines and a cheat meal per week. (Okay so this might have been a bit more when we had the dislocation of the knee to contend with, but I am on track now.) I am eating a bit of bread, but I needed to with half marathon training. So I have been consistently doing two to three F45 sessions, two runs and a yoga. I am feeling much brighter and sleeping better as a result. I have not weighed in because my goal is to buy new jeans and feel great in my bikini again – it is not about the scales. I have noticed at the gym is that I am able to do bench bunny hops without a break now! Plus my running pace is back where I was last year.
Highlights of the month….
Lowlights: The Ginger Hunk having surgery (again) for the fourth time in two years. (But as you can see he always looks pretty happy.)
