Rainy summer days

Hi lovelies! Well that weekend went by at the blink of an eye! It’s already just after six on Sunday and tomorrow I’m back in the office again. Time is just ticking away again.

This morning I was at the gym doing some squats, deadlifts, hip thrusters, handstand drills and box jumps. Box jumps can really be a challenge mentally. Sometimes I catch myself standing there with this massive box in front of me wondering how on earth I’m meant to jump up there. At Gym G5 the boxes are made of wood and it’s the most painful thing falling on them. I’ve done it twice and it hurts so bad! So this fear of falling plays a huge part in why it’s so tough to jump up. You seriously need to give yourself a pep talk once in a while when the voices in your head says you can’t do it. Then just jump and hope for the best. You feel a amazing once you’re up there. It’s such an empowering thing to do, being able to jump high. I don’t know why but it feels great 😛

After the gym I had a nice big breakfast and then got ready to meet up with my sister Ellie and her boyfriend Hampus. The West End Festival had a big day in Kelvingrove Park with music, stands, food and lots of events so we wanted to check it out. However, it rained like absolute crazy so when got there we didn’t stay for very long. It was so cold and wet! I felt really bad for all the people who had planned for this big event and the weather just ruined it.

We took shelter in Kember & Jones instead and sat there for ages chatting about life. Both of them are leaving for the summer Next Saturday so it was nice to spend some time together. I’m not sure if we’ll get a chance to see each other again before they leave.

Now I’m just waiting for Jamie to come home. I can’t wait to see him. I haven’t seen him properly since Thursday I think. It’s the difficult part of having such different work schedules. Next Sunday will be our first whole day together for like four weeks. Absolutely crazy! I can’t explain how much I’m looking forward to that. We’ll have to plan in something extra nice.

Have a lovely evening my dears,

M xx
