LIFE/HEALTH UPDATE // MUM OF A LITTLE MAN


It's really hard to find where to start without it leading to jumbled word vomit, but that's kind of where my head has been at for a while. My health hasn't been great, for those who have followed me for a while will know I've had endless stomach issues since having my son and it's really taken a huge affect on my daily life. I am tired all the time, my appetite is forever going up and down, and some days I have zero motivation to do anything, even getting out of bed feels like a challenge. 

I have been to the doctors multiple times and now finally, after a year, the specialist has put me forward for a laparoscopy. They believe I either have Endometriosis or damage to my womb where I was contracting/in early labour for so long with my son. I really hope they find some form of explanation as to why I'm feeling like this and in so much pain because it's making motherhood an even bigger challenge. I'm hoping to have the operation in the next 8 weeks and will update everyone once it's been done.


I don't know if anyone else has the same effect, but I feel when I don't eat properly, or I'm tired my anxiety increases a huge amount, I get it so bad sometimes that my whole body goes cold and I shiver and I can't seem to control my body so if anyone else gets this and has any coping/controlling methods please email me here: staciemarie@outlook.com


I'm currently trying to put weight on as my BMI slipped really low, again due to stress and just not feeling great, so I've given myself a daily calorie target and hope to reach 8 stone by the end of the year, so far I've gained half a stone so that's already a huge step towards my goal. I will do a 'How To Gain Weight' post very soon on all my methods and what has worked well for me.


Apart from feeling drained/poorly a lot other things have been going well, I've just been keeping busy in my spare time, and getting out of the house a lot, which is why I've been so unactive on social media, I find when I'm stuck inside feeling shitty it's such hard work trying to concentrate and when you feeling blogging is a chore it loses it's fun, I don't want it to feel like work, because for me it's always been my biggest hobby. However, I will be doing my best to post at least once a week now.


I just want to say thank you for your patience, especially companies who I promote that have understood that I've needed time out and to those who have always stuck by me.


Have a lussssssh weekend xo
