Oh the shame, nearly one month since I spoke to you all, please forgive me. Its been a funny month with health issues with me, more health issues with puppy, and general plans for changes in our lives.
As the title says, its a time of change, but also a time of things settling down, but I suppose I mean more like things are coming together. The changes are that we are thinking about selling up and moving house. Not moving far, just trying to find somewhere with a big garden where Watson can run freely and I can one day have another dog and set up a studio for grooming and photography.
When I say things are coming together I mean with Puppy’s health, my health, and my plans in general. Its not long now till my redundancy pay out will run out and we’ll need a new plan to have any more money than enough to cover the bills. I’m applying for a few jobs – one is back at the hospital though not working for the NHS. The money is ok, only a bit less than I was on before, but honestly I’m kind of dreading going back to work full time if that’s the job I get. Partly because of the pain levels etc, but also because office work is just not what I want to do anymore.
I applied for a job today as a dog grooming assistant! Terrible money, but I would see it as a temporary means to an end, as in experience for me grooming dogs and even if I don’t end up with my own grooming salon, I could apply for jobs such as manager of a salon or a pets at home store for example.
Health wise, I had the GP yesterday and I’m so happy with this new guy I’m seeing. He has given me tips to help get my iron levels up so I’m going to implement those in the coming weeks and that should help with the tiredness.
The only area of my life that isn’t moving at all is my weight loss battle. I simply don’t seem to be able to have the motivation to fill in the my fitness pal website and unless I do that and wear my fitbit watch, I don’t know how many calories exactly I’m eating. I can estimate it for sure, but I tend to just think “Oh a little bit of this won’t matter” etc, but it DOES matter. I am sticking at about the same weight. If only they sold “Weight loss motivation” in a bottle, can you imagine how much profit there would be!
