OMG, I’m ill AGAIN – The Climb #260

Sunday 9th October 2017 For someone who never gets ill, I seem to be doing a bad job of avoiding bugs in 2017.  I woke this morning to find that my throat had swollen up and I’d come down with a bit of a fever.  This is like the second time I’ve been ill this [...]

Evolution – The Climb #258

Friday 6th October 2017 I’ve never believed in God.  Nor do I believe in fate.  I do, however, believe the universe gives you signs from time to time. In truth this is just your subconscious drawing meaning from your day, finding parallels that justify a position you probably have already unknowingly concluded.  But I’m a [...]

A Long And Busy Day – The Climb #256

Wednesday 4th October 2017 Today was a ridiculously busy day that left me completely exhausted. I was up early this morning to go to the gym.  Given I was still knackered after yesterday’s busy day, I was feeling tired before I even got there.  I did some work to get my glutes activating and left [...]

Running Late For Physio – The Climb #255

Tuesday 3rd October 2017 Today has been a very busy day.  I had to be up early to go back to physio… and of course, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. I felt I gave myself enough time, but for some reason getting showered and dressed always takes me more time that I [...]

Self-Care – The Climb #251

Friday 29th September 2017 Today has been a bit of a self-care day.  I’ve noticed myself getting a bit low over the last couple of days and have taken measures to combat it. I’ve unpacked all the reasons why and am very confident that it’s a combination of various pressures rather than the early stages [...]

Cake Club Cancelled – The Climb #250

Thursday 28th September 2017 Today was supposed to be a cake club meeting. I’d been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks.  Despite not writing anything this month due to my enforced break after handing in my edits,  I’ve felt very stressed this month and the thing I felt I needed to do [...]

You Are A Product Of Those Around You – The Climb #249

Wednesday 27th September 2017 Today has been an exhausting day where I don’t feel I’ve stopped. It’s not been helped by the fact that the day job annoyed me.  Things are a bit stressful and I really resent the implication that the solution is for everyone to “just work harder”.  The less said about that [...]

I Fell Asleep – The Climb #248

Tuesday 26th September 2017 I went to a physio today about my back.  There’s part of me that’s amused by the fact that if you’d said 5 years ago I would be going to see a sports physio, I would have not believed you. Anyways, the good news is that it’s not a trapped nerve [...]

Validation – The Climb #247

Monday 25th September 2017 So if you are ambitious like me, there comes a time when you set yourself an impossible goal.  Whilst I think it’s good to have short term achievable goals, if I’ve learnt anything over the last 5 years it’s that you should never sell yourself short. I thought the great writers [...]
