Blogmas Day 17 - A Quick Relationship Tag

Blogmas Day 17 - A Quick Relationship Tag Banner
So, I’ve been trying to use Blogmas as a way of getting to know me a little more so I thought, how great would a small relationship tag be. I have made this myself, because I’m writing this alone, but I do eventually want to do a tag with both of us. Feel free to use the tag yourself, and tag me when you finish so I can read it too. I love being nosy.

Blogmas Day 16 - 50 Facts About Me Banner

Can you believe we are finally on a single digit countdown for Christmas Day now?!

I decided that during Blogmas would be a great time for people to get to know me a little more. I have done a small 25 Questions Tag before, but this is just 50 random facts about me. I’m not a widely exciting person but there are a few things that stick out about me.

Blogmas Day 15 - My First Fertility Appointment

Blogmas Day 15 - My First Fertility Appointment Banner

So, on Wednesday I had my first fertility appointment and while I won’t go into details etc I wanted to touch on what happened. 

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll know it was not a positive experience for me. Something that I had been looking forward to and was eagerly hoping would lead to some help soon became a negative event for me and I already want to move to a different specialist. I will not talk about where the appointment was, details, any long explanations or names but I do just want to document this for myself. While this was a negative appointment it was the first step in the fertility journey.

Blogmas Day 14- Planning A Social Media Outage

So, the last couple of weeks have been insane. Busy with appointments, injuries, illnesses and general Christmassy bits. I feel like it has been none stop for me, and it has drained me of precious energy. With my Fibromyalgia, I don’t generally sleep well so with the early starts, busy days and worry I have lacked a lot of necessary sleep. My body is screaming at me for a rest and guess what…I’ve listened and its happening.

First things first, I am still doing Blogmas. I did think about stopping for a few days and giving myself some time but honestly, I am loving it, so I don’t want. I’ll have some scheduled and ready to go.

Blogmas Day 13- Weightloss Wednesday At Christmas

Blogmas Day 13- Weightloss Wednesday At Christmas Banner
It’s been a while since I last wrote a weightloss Wednesday post. I took some time off in November to focus on my studies and my anniversary with James but now I’m back doing blogmas and what a great time to get back into it. I’ve been on and off track with my weight loss, but I am still trying to get my weight down. I have had my first fertility appointment today and weight is something I’m trying to focus on so hard. 

I decided to talk a bit about weight loss around occasions, particularly focusing on Christmas. Everyone knows that Christmas Is for pigging out and most years I do and if that’s what you wish to do then do it. I am not here to judge anyone’s decisions only to help others with there’s. I am trying to stick as much as possible to my diet over Christmas. It’s now important for fertility/pregnancy that kind of thing that I keep the weight off and down. I am also struggling a bit with body image and I think losing some weight could help with that too.

Blogmas Day 12- This Year's Christmas Wishlist

Blogmas Day 12- This Year's Christmas Wishlist Banner
We are on day 12 of Blogmas already and I can’t quite believe how fast this month is going. I am so excited for Christmas, but creating lists for my family and James has been so hard this year. Not because I don’t need anything but because the things I need are expensive, and we have limits. Between me, my 3 sisters and my brother you can imagine the money having to be spent at Christmas. 

After thinking long and hard; and obviously having to go window shopping a few times I have finally come up with lists for both parents and James and I thought I’d share them with you. Santa (my mum) always gives us 3 presents every year that are the same then the rest are things off our lists. My dad just gives us a limit and says tell me what you want and then buys it for us. Practical and to the point!
