goodness in one hit

So this week has come and is almost done, its been one heck of a week and though I can not say I have had any ugly stuff happen I am just so mentally tired it’s getting on my nerves. I am happy that tomorrow I will be jetting off to Brussels for my personal weekend getaway, I can not wait to see the weekend and enjoy it in another country.

So this week the Good the Bad and the Ugly went as follows

The Good

Over the weekend my sister and I went to Brighton for our sisterly weekend getaway where I had the opportunity to review Travelodge Brighton, it was fun.

I received a bunch of lovely products to review and I am so excited.

Though in pain my T-25 has started to pay off I am so happy.

The Bad

I work 9-5 but lately have been working 8am till 10pm leaving me no time to blog nor relax

My fatigue does not seem to be disappearing and the pain from T-25 is still present

I am running behind in everything blogging related and it’s getting me all stressed.

The Ugly


That has been my week so far, how has your week been? Done anything fun?

How do you manage stress?

    Ughhh it must be something in the air because I am never behind when I comes to blogging and I just happen to be very behind at the moment… Ughhh… So stressful!!! Lol

      It must be, the stress of being behind is adding to the stress of being stressed lol.

    I am totally behind on everything blogging as well! I hope your week is less stressful this week!

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:00 am

      Thank you Shannon I hope so too

    I hope your pain diminishes! I get stressed when I get behind on blogging too. I feel you there!

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:01 am

      It’s crazy to think the one thing we love doing is the very thing that can sometimes cause us the most stress

    I manage my stress but getting away….quick vacation or staycation but it sounds like with everything you have going on the sisters get-away did you no good.

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:02 am

      I have come to the same conclusion so July is all about staycations and getaways

  5. June 29, 2015 / 2:11 am

    Awesome to hear that T25 is paying off! I’m just getting into my P90X groove now too.

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:02 am

      I saw the P9ox videos and wow I applaud you

  6. June 29, 2015 / 1:07 am

    I’m sorry you’re stressed! It sounds like you had a pretty awesome week. Do you take some reflection time during your day to just be?

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:03 am

      Thanks Brea, I think I need to take some time and just be

    Hope you have a great time in Brussels. I would love to get a personal vacation like that too. How fun.

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:03 am

      I had an amazing time thank you, can not wait to go back

  8. June 29, 2015 / 12:41 am

    Looks like you are busy as always! I try to get through the stress by organizing things into actionable items that I can check off to feel like I am making progress – even if it’s small (like item #1 might be ‘make a list’).

    • June 30, 2015 / 7:04 am

      Currently all my actionable items are out the window, I am working on nott at the moment lol

  9. June 28, 2015 / 11:16 pm

    Well I am glad for your getaway. Sometime work gets the best of us. I manage stress with a good laugh

  10. June 28, 2015 / 8:20 pm

    Wow, you really work a lot! I hope the trip to Brussels gives you some down time and you can relax a little! A hot bath helps me when I’m stressed, or a good book too!

  11. June 28, 2015 / 7:44 pm

    Stress is the worst! I’ve been feeling so stressed lately. Between work, blogging and freelancing wiring on the side, it seems like I never have any down/me time but it’s worth it. I just need better time management skills <3

  12. June 28, 2015 / 3:04 pm

    Oh my! You sure are busy. 8a-10p work? You are going to burn yourself right out! Hope it gets better and you can get out of work at a decent time to relax!

  13. June 28, 2015 / 2:48 pm

    I get stressed too when I’m behind my blogging stuff, lol. I usually have at least 3 blog posts that are scheduled so I don’t worry about being way too behind. You might find that helpful. But please girl, I hope you try to get out of work earlier. 8AM to 10PM is so not okay.

    I know you super look forward to the weekend getaway to Brussels, enjoy and have an awesome time!

    It sounds like you had an amazing time with your sister which was a positive thing. It is so hard to work and not get behind when you are in pain. I usually rest every couple hours when I am hurting but I am working at home too. I will sometimes be super sore and go for a walk no matter how bad it is for me. I tend to over due things and pay later for pushing it. My week started out bad because of being sick but ended with me feeling better. Thanks for sharing.

    working 8-10pm. Those hours seem so long ago for me. It only works when you are young and new to working to be able to handle those hours. Handling stress for me over the years is forcing myself to take time to either getting a pedicure (yes its an hour but so worth it) or just heading to the book store and paging through fashion mags or gossip mags.

  16. June 28, 2015 / 5:00 am

    My week has been okay – I worked too, and we started on a major clean up, which we’ve been putting off for a while (Preparing for baby.)

    I totally get the work thing.. It sucks. I’m working less now, but at my last job I work 9pm to 730am every day. It was absolutely terrible.

  17. June 27, 2015 / 7:26 pm

    8 to 10pm? How is that legal!? I understand your stress. I hope you can get a break real soon. Sounds like traveling outside the country is exactly what you need!

  18. June 27, 2015 / 5:48 pm

    I walk almost every night and that’s how I relieve myself from stress. The breathing exercises that I do while walking helps a lot.

  19. June 27, 2015 / 12:16 pm

    It does seem like Summer activities wears a person out!! I am attending my Zumba class this morning and then we will be going to a friend’s wedding today. Hopefully tomorrow will be lazy Sunday to rest up!

    Your Brighton get away at the travel lodge sounds lovely. I really want to make plans for a wknd break too. lovely post. k x
