Sat 29th June – Too Hot


How was my skin today?

It’s been giving me some grief, but my acceptance levels are good and it no longer stops me doing what I want.

How was my picking/attitude to my skin?

For the most part I did well but I couldn’t sleep as it was so hot. My skin often gets a bit red in places so I have to apply some moisturising cream and when I did that I had a little pick.

But I’ve come so far. I feel in total control now. In the past I could spend an hour in front of the mirror picking at every blemish, now it’s a matter of minutes.

Was my diet good?

Yes but I did revert to the ice lolly. I won’t buy anymore but having come in from an 18 mile run on the hottest day of the year I wouldn’t have been human if I hadn’t wanted to have a lolly. Plus it’s 100% fruit.

What were the highlights of the day?

I did the longest run of my life on the hottest day of the year so far. Probably a tad stupid but I ran slowly and kept well hydrated. I’m proud of the achievement.

What was I grateful for today?

How far I’ve come in the last 8 months. I almost feel life is now just beginning again for me.
