Can I just start by saying a big massive thank you to everyone who commented, messaged and emailed me while I was off sick. It really made me smile when I was feeling so glum!
Thankfully I am feeling so much better now and getting back into the swing of things. A bit of a cough left but it’s getting there…. and my spotty rash is fading everyday… it only slightly looks like I have chicken pox now! (P.S. Just to clarify, I didn’t have the pox)
But just because I am feeling better does not mean I have jumped back into everything at full steam! Taking it easy still and trying to get some naps in during the day to help my body heal. Although it is hard to pace myself I know it will be better in the long run. #TakingMyOwnAdvice
Let’s crack on with this weeks Friday Favourites!
Favourite… Moment – Getting my voice back!
Losing my voice with this virus was horrible. Sunday I literally had no sound, a squeak maybe and I could only communicate with David via whisper! Only a small croak left now though. Hooray!
Favourite…Feeling – Waking up in the morning feeling better than yesterday
Is there a better feeling than this when you are unwell? I am a major advocate for sleep and it’s healing power on the body and it really didn’t let me down this week and last. Give your body what it needs and it will reward you!
Favourite…Purchase – Chocolate covered dates
We can buy these chocolate covered dates from the bulk bins at our local store Kakulas… and I only ever buy a handful at a time they are that good! (aka otherwise I would eat them all… scratch that, David would eat them all…) Mostly chocolate to be honest but the dark chocolate on it is so good!
Favourite…Food/Drink – Homemade cappuccinos
I have been meaning to buy a handheld milk frother for a while but refused to buy an expensive one when I know I can get a cheap one from Ikea. Cue trip to Ikea = hello cappuccinos! And they taste great, made exactly the way I like!
Updates – 5TTT
This weeks 5 Top Tips on a Tuesday looked at what to do when you feel like your whole world is crashing down around you. From the big to the small we all feel so overwhelmed at times, check out these tips to move out of this period smoothly.
And no podcast this week! I totally lost my voice with this virus but will be back on Wednesday with a new one ready to download. Or subscribe to get it instantly downloaded!
Favourite…Workout – 17.2
I really didn’t know if I was going to be able to do this workout. I watched David do it on Saturday along with most of my box and decided to attempt it on Monday. And that I did! I didn’t manage a pull up but I got a kick ass tiebraker time and felt good afterwards. Thank goodness it wasn’t a long one and I went for a good nap afterwards! Just happy to have been able to take part!
Weekend Plans – Tonight we are off to the zoo for some post work drinks! Apparently we don’t get to see the animals… and it will be an early night because… Saturday – Up early for 17.3, coffee, weekly shop, out for lunch, food prep and podcasting! Sunday – Off to see Matilda on stage! Have waited for this for so long, so excited!
Have a fab weekend folks!
