Inner Truth

Over at Liska's blog, she has been busy thinking of a new name for the Monday linky & blog hop. Go and have a read and let her know your thoughts. I really love what she has come up with and think it is very fitting.

I have to be honest and say that I have been RUBBISH since being in hospital. I haven't even weighed myself, that is how bad it is. I don't even want to look because I know I have piled weight back on since being ill. I completely lost the momentum and have undone all my hard work.

A big part of it is, I am not allowed to exercise or to work my heart too hard, and indeed when I do try and do a little more, I end up with palpitations and breathlessness for my troubles. Yesterday I went on a cleaning spree and blitzed the house because I cannot stand seeing things out of order, but come dinner time I was kneeling on the floor with pain in my chest. I really need to learn to do as I am told.

So this week I am easing myself back in to proper eating habits and regaining the momentum, but slowly. When I was in hospital I had a limited menu to choose from (wasn't impressed with any of it, I must say) and therefore ate whatever I could whenever I could because hospital food just was not doing it for me. Thankfully twice my aunt & cousin brought me in a subway, for that I will be eternally grateful haha. Aside from that I ate crisps and snacks and whatever else.

This week it has to stop, I am looking in the mirror and thinking "Bleurgh" and that is not what I want to think when I look at myself. I have worked so hard to lose the weight & keep it off after having my babies, I point blank refuse to gain loads of weight after the fact! I want to be happy with myself and my body and after my health scare especially, I know I need to take better care of myself.

My follow up with the Cardiologist is on May 25th so fingers crossed I will be allowed to exercise again then, I will probably have to start with something like swimming to ease myself back in to it, which is fine as I love swimming and it is great for toning.

We will see!


  1. You've absolutely blown me away with that badge - I looked at it and your post, on the phone, while out shopping. I literally stopped dead in the street and looked at it for ages.

    Thank you.

    Sorry to hear you're poorly - look after yourself.

    Big hugs,

  2. Do you have a bigger version of it and I'll make it the official badge (only if you don't mind of course)

  3. Haven't a clue what size.... whatever is needed for me to make it a badge with code which I will be doing for the 1st time xx

  4. I've added a "page" with a "badge" - can you see if it works (only when you have time)?

  5. Love the badge, I wish I was as talented! I think from what you've said you need to make sure you are taking care of yourself and not over doing it as well as learning to love who you are now. I know that horrible feeling when you look in the mirror but one thing you need to remember is that you are still the same person inside. Fat/thin, healthy/unhealthy, fit/unfit it doesn't change your inner beauty. x

  6. So sorry to hear about your health scare Julie, wishing you a speedy recovery and please be kind to yourself. Mich x
