Reasons To Be Cheerful

For more information on what Reasons to Be Cheerful (#R2BC) is all about please check out this post from Michelle at Mummy from the Heart for a full description.

I've had a pretty rubbish week emotionally so I was struggling to do this today, and did think about not bothering... But, here we go.

My Little Lady has hit the toddler stage, well and truly. Gone is my sweet cute baby, replaced by a part time Machiavellian tantrum throwing, boundary testing, screaming, hitting, throwing, whirlwind. This however does lead to two reasons to be cheerful. Firstly, I'm glad she's developing her independence and sense of adventure, even if I'm losing my mind! Secondly, Daddy is off work for a couple of days, so I can have a bit of a break.

Sunday is my wedding anniversary, we don't have anything special planned, but hoping to go out for some dinner.

I have decided to do something about my physical health. I need to diet and exercise more. I have put on quite a lot of weight with the medications and, bearing in mind, I wasn't a slim girl before, I really need to sort it out. I have changed my medication recently, so that's a help. I have re-joined Slimming World this week, with my friend, so support there. I have also started trying to do a little exercise each day. I have a family history of diabetes and heart problems, a combination of which killed my mother at 49, so I WILL get back to some kind of healthy fitness! My daughter deserves me to be around.

I had a positive meeting with my psychiatrist. The last couple of appointments seemed to just be going through the motions, as I didn't feel she was listening to me. Which it turns out she wasn't, she apologised, sorted one thing out there and then, and hopefully the others are in the process of happening.

Over to you, what are your reasons to be cheerful?
