Just Me

It's not very often that I just do a post about me. When you have a baby you don't think of me anymore and thats a perfect natural thing. But I feel like i'm losing me. I'm not the same person I was before I became a mum and strangely enough planning the wedding has taught me that.

I don't hate how I look although I have looked better but for the wedding I want to look my best. I think every bride does. Since becoming a mummy i've let things slide. I think tiredness does that to you. I don't follow a skincare routine as much as I used to, I don't paint my nails or get my hair done and I often forgot even simple things like drinking water throughout the day.

All these things have kind of bulit up and made me not feel like myself and get a little fed up to be honest. I want to feel amazing on my wedding day. I want to look the best I can.

I used to be a beauty student, I used to have weekly facials and manicures. I loved it and sure I still would. That's why I entered training in the first place.

I miss all that. I miss reading, I haven't sat down with a book in ages.

So this is my plan. My wedding diet if you like. It isn't a diet at all but if I keep in mind the wedding i'm more likely to stick with it.

1. Drink more water. I'm going to aim for 2 liters a day. Drinking a glass of water every hour is my plan at the moment.

2. Get my skin back on track. Surely I can look tired but have fabulous skin.

3. Read a book

4. Paint my nails every 2 weeks at least. I find it relaxing and fun.

5. Start working out. I'm convincing Mark to do the 30 day shred with me. I want some results and want them quickly for the wedding.

6. Stop eating bread. This may sound like a strange one but i've been getting so bloated lately and i'm 99% sure its because of bread. I will cut it out for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.

7. To make an effort to laugh more. I'm a happy person I swear but I feel like i'm stuck in a bit of a ditch at the moment and laughing is wonderful therapy, at least for me.

Tell me a joke in the comments to get me started!

Thanks for reading,

Nicola Xx

    1. Thank you. Cutting out bread is helping so much so far :) x

  3. As a new mummy I have been so shocked how quickly you become run down. I too set myself the target of beautifying myself and shifting weight and drinking more water. Made me feel better to hear I'm not the only one! Who would think you would have to remind yourself to drink water? Hehe. Good luck with your plans. xx
