A Quiet Sunday

I’m normally in bed by midnight on a Saturday night – maybe, if something big is happening, I’ll have a super late night and stay up until 2. Crazy, right? Sarcasm intended. When you only have two days to recharge every weekend, I don’t really think it’s a good idea to spend that little time absolutely exhausted anymore. Do I sound boring? Probably. Maybe I’m getting old. After years of abusing my body clock, to a point where I was pretty much nocturnal, I just thought it was about time I tried to create some sort of healthy routine!

Despite all that, I didn’t go to sleep until 6am on Sunday morning… and I’m paying for it now. After deciding to make an effort to stay up and watch Nate Diaz’s and Conor McGregor’s rematch at UFC 202, I finally got a handful of hours sleep at Matt’s brother’s house before grabbing taxi back home this morning. Not only was I completely sleep deprived but I was suffering from the worst hangover of all time. It’s my own fault, of course, but it doesn’t make me feel any better. If you’re feeling generous, send your pity this way.

As you can imagine, today was spent doing not much at all. I had a cuddle with Matthew whilst we watched cheesy daytime television, ate some super buttery toast and then went to bed. Again. I’m awake now and, although I have a monstrous headache, I can stand without seeing triple. So, you know, silver linings and all that.

I’m going to spend the remainder of my Sunday in the bath with a Lush bath bomb. They’re magical. Somehow, they make all of your troubles feel so insignificant. I’ll probably throw in a cup of tea, a good book and a little bit of chocolate too. Just to be sure.


How did you spend your weekend? 🙂

  1. Oh man, hangovers are the absolute worst. Godspeed on riding the rest of this one out. Have you tried taking a bit of the hair of the dog that bit you? It might help a bit — or postpone the hangover some.

    I just had a super lazy weekend after spending the last one moving into my new apartment with my partner; we’ve finally ended our long-distance relationship after five years! Basically, we sat around the apartment, sipping on beer, watching Hell’s Kitchen and X-Files, having all-day brunch. It was a good time. Kinda sad that it has to end.

    • I wouldn’t have been able to handle hair of the dog – I was too poorly haha!
      Oh that sounds amazing. I hope the move went smoothly. I wonder if it will feel different being so close all the time, after such a long time apart. At least now you know that’s how you can spend every weekend if you choose to :).

  3. Trust me, having routine won’t make you healthy. It just ruins your health.
    You must employ barbell strategy for your body, to maintain your health.
    It’s not only on your physical activity, but also the way you eat. Having routine is similar to eating the same or predictable menu on daily basis; sickness will come sooner that you’ve predicted.

    • I think a sleep routine is a step in the right direction towards healthiness. I do agree with everything else you said though – lots of factors to consider when you’re trying to be healthy!

      Thanks for stopping by :).
