So I started Slimming World back in April but just wasn't ready for the commitment at that time. What with waiting patiently with my recovery from post traumatic stress disorder, I needed a bit more time to get my head round it.
Having gone from desserts every night and eating convenience food with zero prep, it was a shock to the system to start with! I started again in July and have continued since. I feel like I've found my groove with it. Adding in a few Iceland Slimming World ready meals and easier dinners with less prep. It takes the pressure off. I also went too hard on the exercise to start with. Now I just do a bit of walking when I can. It's not so intense and I love it. Put your music in and switch off. It really helps clear my mind.
Back in June this year, I went to the amazing blogging conference that is 'Blogtacular' and am still processing everything that I learnt there. I feel a bit guilty I haven't posted a single blog since then but I have my reasons. Which I will explain another time.
Going to Blogtacular was so affirming for me in more ways than one. Not only that I felt so at home with fellow creatives and makers that just 'got' me. But also what I'd been seeing and feeling in terms of where the world is heading.
I'm Julia, Just Creative Julia, jolly pleased to meet you!
