Get Moving

Last week I had a physical breakdown caused by stress firing off my bowel disease and my whole body gave up in spectacular fashion. What a chuffing pansy.

I believe it is largely to do with what’s left of the day job. I have been sodding miserable there for a while and work along some of the most negative people on the planet.

You know what to do in that situation right?

You leave.

No point whining to your friends, neighbours or the Internet about it.

If after 17 years working somewhere you can get so miserable you have a total physical collapse, you leave. Move on. Find something else.

In my case I will be going full time self employed. Pimping my ridiculously diverse skill set for fame, money and dog kibbles.

Giving notice this week to be out of there end of November.

If any of you wonderful folk have a use for any of my said diverse skill set on the ‘For Hire‘ page, drop me an email.

Get moving Sable.

It’s not that bad

Went for my first decent length bicycle ride for years this morning. Gave up waiting for the cough to go before I try and get fit and as it is meant to be the hottest day of the year, wanted to get it done early.

Managed to average 15mph which is fairly good on a terrible single speed Foffa bicycle. I was left encouraged at the end by the sight of muscles in my leg I thought had long faded. They are still there.

I also found the NHS weight chart. Turns out at 12 stone I’m still considered a healthy weight (just).

So my goal remains the same. Eat healthier, build some muscle back up and aim for 10 stone. I do not think it’s going to be as hard as first thought. 😊



If you work hard, you too could be a sunflower!

I do get why they use fields like these in motivation posters, but this is always how I see them 🙂
