Some vulnerable thoughts from a Yorkshire lardarse.

I'm not very good at discussing my mental health problems and I often overcompensate and come across as a 'happy chick'. The coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on our mental health and personally like many my mental health has taken a turn for the worst which has also affected me physically.

Today I finally decided to get a grip of my health and happiness. Yes I know I should I have done it along time ago, and yes I know what I need to do...but to be totally honest my mental issues took over and I just thought it was an overwhelming I took more pleasure in drinking pints and binge watching Netflix.

Jokes aside - I look at myself in the mirror and barley recognise myself; I am at rock bottom with my physical and mental health. Enough is enough and despite attempts from David, my family and friends trying to encourage me, I had to be ready myself which I finally am. I know I am a bit late to the whole 'Quarantine Fitness Queen' bollocks but figured if I put my weight-loss journey on here then I will feel more committed. Alongside documenting my journey I want to help raise money for MIND charity so that they can be there for everyone who needs their help at this crucial time.

If you see me waddling through Thornton Dale in 6 months you can remind me of this post. Hopefully i'll be strutting with some short shorts living my best life instead. Wish me luck kids cos this lardarse is no more!
