The Reality Of Working For Ourselves And More Minions | Weekly Vlog Number 7

Work. That could probably sum up this week in one word. We have grabbed time off when we can, but our whole week seems to have consisted of accountants, solicitors, grabbing WIFI and travel.

It’s certainly true that we relax more when we stay on the boat, but working for ourselves can sometimes mean putting in the hours – oh so many hours. Not that I’d change a thing, working a 9-5 broke me once. I’m never giving it a chance to do so again!

I feel that we are extraordinary lucky in as much as we work for ourselves, work together on a lot of projects and STILL don’t want to kill each other! That doesn’t mean to say that it doesn’t get stressful from time-to-time, but we always seem to come through it intact and with smiles on our faces. I think the fact that we both have a seriously weird sense of humour bonds us together.

In other news, the road to a healthier me seems to have hit a bit of a brick wall. We seem to be rewarding ourselves for long working hours by eating out or having to grab food on the go – not a good idea when you’re trying to lose a few pounds. I’m still not on a downer about it and my attitude to food and weight loss in general is still upbeat and optimistic.

I am patting myself on the back for having a fresh smoothie for breakfast this morning before we left the boat for our five hour journey to Sunderland and choosing a tuna jacket hold the mayo for lunch. I’ll get back on track again, just you watch me – literally if you subscribe to my YouTube channel 😉

I hope you enjoyed weekly vlog number 7. Catch you soon.

    Well, kudos to you for getting stepping outside of big-time work deadlines and getting a blog post out there in the middle of it all! So easy to get tunnel vision with many pressing obligations elsewhere. Something that interferes with my own ideas on developing a blog–but I really enjoy reading yours and those of the other 0-40s and see that somehow, you do find the time. Inspirational — Keep writing!

      It wasn’t easy Mary, but I do so enjoy writing – it’s not so much a chore as a passion 🙂

    Travel sure does make sticking to a diet difficult. I know from long experience! You’ll be back on track in no time, once things settle down. I always remind myself that in 20 years, I’ll probably be grateful for the time that I was at this weight and this stage of life and happiness. xx

      It’s so difficult! So many restaurants, so much choice – my waist may never recover xx
