Sat & Sun 8-9th June – St.Albans


How was my skin today?

It was ok for the whole weekend.

How was my picking/attitude to my skin?

Acceptance is becoming a huge part of my attitude towards my skin which makes everything so much easier. I’m no longer is search of flawless skin, knowing it’s unobtainable and accepting myself for who I am including all my imperfections.

I did have a pick on Sunday evening. I was tired. But there were a few blackheads I’d been leaving all week, waiting for the right time to get rid of without risking them flaring up, so I was fine with that.

Was my diet good?

Yes I ate well. Had a Pret for lunch on Sunday which is a super healthy option.

What were the highlights of the day?

Saturday evening I went for a walk around St.Albans. I wandered round by the Cathedral and just tried to soak everything up. Kids playing cricket with their dad, owners having fun with their dogs, the beautiful Cathedral and the history. I felt at peace. It was great and I was so relaxed.

Sunday was race day. I had set myself an unrealistic challenge of trying to get a PB. It was unrealistic given the difficulty of the course and the warm weather. I should have just gone out, run and enjoyed it. My time would have been better.

Instead I went off too hard and struggled badly towards the end. I was way too hard on myself, with negative self talk. I’ve been good with my running in this sense this year with little pressure so it’s just a small blip and a good lesson learned.

What was I grateful for today?

I managed to turn a negative into a positive with a funny facebook post that people lapped up.

What made me laugh today?
