On Monday I had a lovely day out with Helen and her parents at the beautiful National trust village of Lacock. When I was unwell we would often plan days out but not actually end up going because my anxiety levels would be too high to leave the house or by the time I managed to get out and about it would be too late to go anywhere too far away. Lacock was one of the places that we planned to go to twice but we never made it so it was brilliant to finally get there. It reminded me of how far I have come and it’s an amazing feeling to know that I am no longer held back by OCD, I am free to do the things that I want to do, when I want to do them and I will never take that for granted!
I have been keeping going with the exercise and although I’ve been eating what I’ve wanted (within moderation) I have managed to maintain my weight. Over the next few weeks I plan to step up the exercise and reduce the calories again in a bid to reach my target weight! I am going to run the Lacock half marathon on the 7th of August, which will give me a challenge to focus on, although I’m hoping this will feel like a doddle compared to the Everest Marathon!
I am also focusing on clearing out my spare room and front room at the moment so in my next post I will fill you in on the details around why this is such a significant task!
It’s supposed to be a sunny weekend so me and Helen plan on making the most of it and getting out and about!
Goodbye for now!
