A mind dump
Sep 4, 2017
A mind dump. We moved Tristan into a big boy bed (i.e. a 3/4 bed with a roll guard) and he’s sleeping so much better! The other morning he slept till 7:30am; it was pure bliss!!! He’s also being super cute and his vocabulary has grown so much! He’s been off school for a while – he originally got tonsillitis and then an inner ear infection so it really took it’s toll on him, but, he’s actually a really happy sick child so although it was rough it wasn’t as bad as it could be.
Shaun’s (still) working like a dog and some days I really struggle as I’m left doing parenting, house stuff, work , etc and it’s really tough. But, 2 really big clients have just signed and are paying this month so that’s awesome for him that he’s finally seeing some return on his (time) investment.
I’ve started working with a business / life coach as I really want my business to grow. It’s really making me think as to exactly what I want for my business. I think I want it to go in a family travel direction which I think is right for me as I’m now a mom. I’m hoping that Ashley (coach) will be able to help me get where I’m wanting to go as she’s not cheap so needs to result in a good return on investment. I’ve actually just gone and bought the domain familytravelsouthafrica.com and, for now, it’s directed to Southey Travel until I can give it some more thought.
Today is the beginning of week 7 of #itrainwithclaire and I’m doing so well. Those first 2 weeks were so hard and so long and I really wondered why I was trying to do this but I’m now going so well and have already lost 12cm off my whole body! Super chuffed. Am also really enjoying running and lifting weights. Well, I use the machines because there’s less chance of injury due to incorrect technique on a machine vs free weights. Especially as I don’t have a trainer I think it’s the right choice for me. Food-wise I’m doing really well. I really want to start seeing the scale number decrease and I hope that by the end of next week I’ll have seen a change.
So life is good right now. Happy wife = happy life and all that you know?
