5 Ways To Unwind On A Sunday

It’s Sunday which means you’re probably stressing out about the week ahead if you’re anything like me.

That’s not what Sunday’s are for though. Let’s all make it our mission to relax this Sunday and plan for the week ahead..

But how can we do that?!

Sleep well

Let’s be honest, no one sleeps well in the week. With all of life responsibilities and work, education or anything like that. Sleep just isn’t on the table. That is why you should take this whole weekend as an opportunity to catch up on sleep. Rest your precious heads.

Spend some quality time with your loved ones

You know those people that are so busy during the week that you never get to see..? Well spend your weekend with them. Talk about what you got up to during the week and chat all about your plans for the week ahead. You could even go out for an adventure or a date!

Reflect and plan

Think about all the things that you got up to last week and think about what you did right and what you could have done better. Use your new found knowledge to improve the week ahead.

Unplug

The thing with society these days is that we are all completely attached to our phones. We use them to see any local and world news and we use them to communicate with people. Sometimes it’s checking your emails before work the next morning and sometimes it’s just saying hi to a friend. Whatever it is, sometimes you just need to unplug and spend a little time with yourself.

Get excited for Monday

You know that Monday that is quickly approaching?! Well it’s time to get hyped as you have an opportunity to create new memories and experience new things. Get excited because you are going to accomplish great things tomorrow!

I hope that these tips help you to make the most of your Sunday and help you to prepare for Monday!

Fat Hygiene

Let’s talk a little bit about fat hygiene. Embarrassing, I know but it’s something that need to be talked about.

There’s topics in life that no one wants to talk about. Those topics include things like periods, sex and most things to do with fatter bodies. If you’re a fat babe like myself, you’ll probably not want to go around talking about fat hygiene! That is why I’m writing this post.

Hygiene is important for literally everyone. No matter what size you are, you need to be clean! However, it can be harder for bigger bodies as we have rolls and saggy bits that can be harder to reach or to keep clean.

If you asked me a few years ago, how I kept my fat body clean then I wouldn’t know what to say. I didn’t know that fat people needed to do things differently or anything like that. I figured you just smothered your body in shower gel and you’re clean.

If you ask me now, I would have a completely different answer for you. For me, it was hard at first to come to the conclusion that I needed to do things differently. I didn’t like being different but now I’m okay with it.

But that’s enough of talking about me. You aren’t here to hear my story, you’re here for advice so advice I shall give you.

If you have some fat rolls, saggy skin or anything that rubs, you’ll know about how sweaty those areas can get. If you don’t clean them areas enough, they will get a bit sticky and smelly. I want to specially talk about a few areas that tend to be a difficult area for some fat people.

Tummy

Okay, I thought that I would start here as this is the biggest problem area for me personally. I hate my lower tummy. It is saggy and full of rolls. They overlap and rub which causes a lot of sweat, especially in the hot weather. It happens in the cold weather too though.

Unfortunately, I don’t have many tips for this as I’m still working it all about for myself but for me, I need to shower often to help this situation. When you are showering, don’t be afraid to lift up your rolls and fully clean underneath. I use a shower puff and really scrub away the dirt! You can pick them up for around 50p in most shops and they are definitely worth it. If you can’t reach underneath, you could try a shower puff on a stick.

Underarms

Armpit sweat is horrible and is probably the most smelly part for me. If I don’t shower often enough then they start to really smell. I have very sensitive skin so I can’t use most deodorants. However, I do use Avon deodorant which is scent free and great for me. It’s a roll on which I find keep you smelling fresh for longer.

Underboob

If you’re a woman and have boobs, you’ll probably know about under-boob sweat. It’s a nightmare!

Because my tummy is big and so are my boobs, it makes everything very sweaty. If I don’t use my shower puff under my boobs, sweat gathers and make me very itchy. It is one of the most annoying things ever.

To combat this, I try to wear a bra with a good lift. This stops the boob sweat a little and stops my boobs from rubbing on my tummy. If that doesn’t work, a little bit of roll on deodorant under the boobs helps a lot. Just make sure to shower at the end of the day and wash it off so it doesn’t make you just as itchy.

Thighs

They say that mermaids don’t have thigh gaps and that is true but neither do I. My thighs touch and so do many other people’s. If your thighs touch or rub then you know that it’s a nightmare in the summer. The chub rub is awful!

To stop this, there are a few options. You can try wearing cycling shorts under a dress or skirt, you can rub roll on deodorant on your thighs or you can try applying talc on your thighs. All of these things have worked for me. I hope they work for you.

Also, the value of a person is not dependent on their smell. Even if you do end up a bit stinky, you are still a valuable and worthwhile person, okay?

Getting Back To My Old Self

I know that growing up is inevitable. I know that we are bound to change over time. I know that our apperances will change as we age. I know all that!

Do you think it’s possible to age gracefully? I see all these celebrities growing older but hardly changing. Maybe it’s some kind of witchcraft or something, I simply just don’t know. However, when it comes to me, I’m ageing disgracefully.

I look at these photos and feel incredibly sad. I feel like I let myself go and I feel like I didn’t look after myself the way that I wish I did.

I put on weight, cut my hair too short, stopped wearing makeup, stopped dressing in clothing that made me happy and I even became more depressed.

I was sharing these photos on Twitter and people kept responding with lovely things like ‘beautiful in all’ and all that kind of stuff. Don’t get my wrong, I’m super grateful for all the nice comments and they do make me feel a little better but at the end of the day, if I’m not happy with myself then I need to do something about it.

That is why, things are going to be changing around here and my life.

I’m going to get back on the weight loss game so you can actually see my jaw line again. I’m going to get back into fashion and wear clothing that makes me feel great. I’m going to start wearing make up again and practiasing different styles until I find one that I’m happy with. I’m going to grow my hair to a longer length so I can style it different ways. And most importantly, I am going to work on getting better mentally.

I’m going to start documenting my lifestyle changes on my blog, YouTube channel, Fitness Insta and Twitter. If you want to keep up to date with my life changes then I definitely recommending checking out my other socials.
