word of the week #21


It has been a productive week. Nothing major has really happened, but small achievements. Last weekend we finally finished the garden, and I'm thrilled with it - a full post on that soon! A few niggly things that were playing on my mind both at work and at home have got done and seemed to go well.

The running is improving, slowly but surely, and on Sunday I will run my first ever two miles without stopping, and I can't believe that somehow that doesn't sound like a ridiculous idea. I'm also slowly progressing towards my target of a healthy weight, with lots of support from my wonderful mum and The Husband.

Things are good, life is happy, and there are small changes for the better happening all around. Joining in with this project helps me to notice them, even when nothing remarkable has happened, each week includes something of note, and I'm enjoying taking a few minutes (or a bit longer in the case of that picture which went slightly awry) to recognise the progress I am making.

  3. Sounds very positive. I do find that by doing this, it does make me stop and take a good look at the week, too, which can be very useful. Glad it's helping! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  6. So many happy things! Congrats on the running success and progress!! It is so hard to get started with running, but once you've been doing it a while you'll wonder how you ever thought it was so bad.

  7. Sounds like a really great week, Katie. Wow, 2 miles...think I would struggle to run 2 yards, I can walk for miles though! It's good to get little niggles sorted, it's freeing in a way really. Hope this week is a good one too xx
