Blooming El



Happy hump day! It's half six in the morning and I'm all warm and snuggly in bed, preparing for the cold air to hit me as soon as I peel back the covers. 

I love mornings throughout Autumn and Winter. They may be dark and cold at first but that can quickly change with a warm glow of a lamp and the soft touch of a dressing gown. It's the little things right? 

Shall we? 

Noticing a difference

I've only been going to the gym for about four weeks or so but I'm already noticing a difference, both physically and mentally.

Physically, my stomach looks flatter, my hips aren't as wide, my face is getting thinner and my clothes are fitting better.

Mentally, I don't feel as sluggish and apart from a few hormones making me super emotional, I feel okay. I've started using the gym as a way to let off steam, if I've had a tough day at work or if someone has put me in a bad mood, a quick dash to the gym soon sorts me out.

Another new read

Some books I pick up and it takes me forever to finish them. Other books, I pick up and before I know it I'm 400 pages deep. This happened to me on Sunday when I started 'Rattle'. I have just under 200 pages left and I can't wait to see what happens! If you like all things crime, serial killer-y, and kidnap-y, then Rattle is the book for you!

A cosy morning

On Saturday I treated myself to a lazy morning in bed. Curled up in my duvet, I watched Riverdale and an episode of Blindspot and didn't jump out of bed till about midday. It had been a while since I'd had a super lazy morning and as I've been working so hard, I thought I deserved it!

Letting it all out

I've felt a little emotional this week (hormones are buggers) but after a chat with G and a little cry, I felt much better. I always feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder once I've had a good cry and all that tension just vanishes. 

That's all for this week! Don't forget to check out what's been making the rest of the wonder women* happy. If you want to join in yourself, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
