F Bella la vie: My current situation

My current situation

Okay, so I finished my previous job on good terms and placed the cherry on top of my Peanut Butter Truffle Cupcake. 4 years ago I set the goals I wanted to achieve and I made them and a bit more. I'm a determined woman!
Mid September 17 came along, I jumped on a plane from Milan to Edinburgh and I flew right back out again for a glorious 2 weeks with my best friend in Spain.
Then. Then it hit me. What am I doing?
Well lets just say after weeks of travelling around Scotland for job interviews and applying on so many job sites online I whittled my job search down to something more realistic.
What did I really want?
I had been living out of a suitcase for 4 years, I wanted to feel more settled down, I wanted to be able to buy plants without letting them die. However was I giving up my dream job, was I making the right decision?
Well it was tough. So many thoughts went through my head. I love a challenge and I accomplished so much in my previous work. Working 6 days a week and being on call 24/7, 7 days a week was something I was definitely willing to give up. I was tired and maybe a little burnt out. I was ready to enjoy time back home, seeing my family and in 5 years having a Christmas at home.
So I wrote a list, a lot of lists and I came to the conclusion that I wanted a change, a big change. I wanted to have time to feed my interests. Weekends to see my family and friends. Time to go to the gym and go to events.
So I applied to completely different jobs which I thought would keep me on my toes, challenge me and give me new skills and it paid off. I start my new job on the 8th of January and I am super excited. Waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

However there is a slight problem. The 3 and a half luxurious months I have spent back home having lie ins, eating chocolate, chinese, half battered pizzas and a whole load of cheese and biscuits has resulted in me putting on around 2 stone, having no energy and bad skin. Yep it's been fun but it's time to get back on the health band wagon.

With 2018 just around the corner, moving to Newcastle and starting my new job I can't think of a better time to become healthier. I really do feel 2018 is my year, a learning platform and time to grow.

So come with me!! Every week I will be posting in my fitness page of my results and experiences. Along the way blogging about fashion and lifestyle.

For anybody on the same journey who wants to share tips or for anybody who wants me to cover different topics, please get in touch. Lets start our own journeys together becoming more confident, strong woman and setting realistic goals and dreams for 2018.
