Weekly round up #1 All the Vegan food and naps

Alternative fashion blogger foxxtailz

12 days into 2020 and I’m just getting round to doing a weekly round up - whoops. If I’m honest, this one nearly didn’t happen either but I decided to get my butt into gear and not miss my second round up on the bounce. I wanted to get into the habit of doing these again, if not weekly, then perhaps every few weeks. 

Where to begin, I’ve already forgotten most of the stuff I’ve done the past 12 days. . . .

I seemed to have spent most of my time asleep, in loungewear or eating it’s been pretty rad tbf. James and I went Vegan on January 1st and, with it being veganuary, alllll the good vegan foods are coming out, so far we’ve tried the Vegan meatball sub, Papa Johns pepperoni pizza and found a bunch of great places in Leeds that do rad Vegan food. There’s also now a Leon in Leeds station and it’s legit one of my fave places, may or may not have nearly screamed when I saw it in the station - I love their Vegan love burgers. We’ve found transitioning from Veggie to Vegan quite easy but I think this is mainly down to our diets before the switch being around 75%-80% vegan anyway.

Last weekend James’ brother came to visit, so we mostly pottered around the flat and had a cosy weekend of not really doing much so of course that meant lots of time spent with Cassandra before I headed back to work after the Christmas break. Legit gutted the Christmas period is over, everyone feels festive AF, everyone's up for a drink and you can eat a tin of roses everyday for breakfast with no judgement. It’s also a collective time everyone has time off to just chill the fuck out, relax and recuperate after a hectic year. Last weekend I also made my room feel more homely, even though I spend most of my time in there, its never felt finished or that we had left our mark on it. The flat we live in has limited space meaning there are limited things we can do with it. I bought a light curtain from amazon, put up a bunch of prints and now it’s super cosy, makes it even harder for me to leave my room then it was before.

 After a hugggggeeee break from the gym and pole I went back last week and it killed me. I had been ill the run up to Christmas and over Christmas itself meaning I barley went to any pole lessons over December and didn’t go to the gym. My first pole session back I was useless, I felt like I had severely gone back on all the progress I had made in the previous year but I anticipated that, it’s always the same the first few lessons back after an extended break, I just hope I find my pole mojo back soon. As well as Pole I went back to the gym, I usually go 4 times a week plus pole but I hadn’t been for so long I felt ridiculously out of shape. BUT ya gal got herself a PT this year and I am stoked about it. I see Cath once a week but she does weekly workout plans for me and looks at what I’ve been eating and gives me recommendations. It’s been tough but it so great to be back and working hard. The latter end of the year I put on a bit of weight and wanted to shift around a stone so I felt more comfortable again and so I could actually fit into my jeans, I’ve found the older I’m getting the harder it is to shift those lbs I put on and I was having a tough time trying to get rid of the extra couple I’d put on. I’ve lost around 9lbs and I finally fit back into my fave jeans. I had obviously had a very indulgent summer lol. The plan is now to bulk and get stronger, I’m so excited to see what happens 6 months down the line and at what point I’ll be at.

I also got my pole smoke shoots back from the shoot I did back in November and I am thrilled with them! I’ve got a blogpost in the works all about pole so I’ll share more shots then. It was a great day and experience and now I have pole shots back documenting how far I’ve come since starting in September 2016. I may not be the strongest, most poised or graceful but I fracking live my classes.

This weekend was very much the same as the last, getting cosy and eating a bunch of good food lol. Unfortunately, some turd all week has been hacking all my accounts and has tried to make various transactions on various sites. It freaked me out so much, they even tried to log into my FitBit account which I found so bizarre? I spent most of Friday night ringing up all my card providers and cancelling all my accounts and speaking to fraud teams - not the way I wanted to spend my 2020. Cunty behaviour from others aside, I got to see my favourite people in the world and have a belated friend-mas with them as I was too ill to see them when we had originally planned to.

We swapped gifts, hung out, chatted, laughed, put the world to rights and just had a bloody great Saturday. We ate a bunch of great vegan food and just hid away from the horrible storm brewing outside. Sunday James helped me with blog and Instagram stuff before the headed to Knaves kitchen and got some more vegan goodness - with all this junk I’ve eaten this weekend, lets just say it’s a good job I’m back at the gym and with a PT otherwise my jeans my not end up fitting again lol. We had a wander around town, got some fresh air and James picked up a few bits from the sale before we headed back home to get in comfys and watch a bit of Netflix and read before I start another hectic week back at work. 

I bloody love my new job and I feel so blessed to be in the role that I am. I still can’t quite believe I got it and I’m thankful everyday that I did.
