90 Day Journey

Day 19 & 20

Sunday is always a day that I like to rest. I’m not religious so I don’t do it for that reason, I do it because I like to have lazy days. I enjoy a good old lazy day.
I need to to recoup-orate and to be around for my kids if they need me.

Sunday is also the day that we have croissants for breakfast. I love a croissant, especially the freshly baked ones that we have in the morning.

I also do some baking with my daughter Jessica today.
I asked each one of my children what activity that they would like to do with me; Jess chose baking, Zach chose cooking an evening meal, and Maddie chose tap dancing.

This is the second time that I have done baking with Jess since we have moved. First we made brownies and yesterday we made flapjacks (yummmmmm)

I have decided that I’m going to have certain meals as times that I enjoy the food I like without any guilt. So that’s what I am going to follow from now on. I figure that if I allow myself to enjoy some ‘naughty’ food, that I won’t have any cravings. I’ll let you know how that goes lol.

Writing this on a Monday, I now know that I haven’t eaten well today, nor have I done yoga in a few days. I realise I have been so preoccupied in my head with my kids starting school, that I haven’t managed to focus. But they had their first day today so I can now relax. I won’t make a post tomorrow, but I will the day after, as I’m going to get back on track and let you know how it went.

Thank you all for your support and comments, it mean’t alot reading that you all understand that there are bumps along the road <3

Talk to you in 2 day!

Much love,

    Hey Natalie!
    You are tackling a ton, girl and I am cheering you on! You just spent quite a bit of time moving to a different country and all while trying to help your kids adjust too. Don’t discredit all that you’ve done even before you started this 90 day journey! Give yourself some grace, and keep up with what you can. We were meant to have a day off, to recoup, to have a couple of off days, but you’re doing great by getting back on the wagon and doing the best that you can. I’m loving keeping up with you on your journey! I’m curious to know what country you moved to? You probably are dealing with a lot of different changes, not just language barriers, but cultural as well.

      Thank you for your kind words and that you are here with me on my journey.
      I’ve had a few days off now and I’m feeling much more energised and ready to pick myself up again to carry on.
      Your support means so much to me, thank you!
