So I finally sampled the tastes of wagamama with mother dearest :) This is one of the first times I've ever really dined out in Glasgow since moving here (5 years ago). I never go to restaurants because of the anxiety and fear but I conquered it and mother and I managed to bag a quiet table in the corner which made me feel a lot better. The menu has lots of different styles of dishes ranging from noodles to soup. Obviously I ordered a raw salad because I love me some lettuce leafs. I also challeneged myself and ordered a rice dish with tofu which is something I would never ussually give a whirl. I'm glad I did because the tofu was dreamy but I can't say I liked the rest of the dish because I'm not a huge fan of rice. I probably subconsciously ordered something I wasn't hugely keen on because my ED did get the better when it came to ordering. However going out in itself was a big step so hopefully next time I can be a bit braver.

Spending time with mum was just what we both needed and it was a lovely eve. We chatted about future plans and decided we need to spend more time together as its something that has come somewhat neglected these past few months. After our meal we headed to the Princess square for coffee and photo taking.
While we were chatting the exercise situation came up and the fact I'm doing too much. To be honest I knew this but have been wearing the blinkers for a while just thinking that its 'not that bad'. It is though and my new years resolution about spending less gym time has fallen by the wayside. I don't like to discuss it too much here because a) I don't want to trigger others and b) I thought if I ignore it then perhaps its not a problem at all. The latter is a total fool proof way of becoming an idiot though because I am suffering the consquences of the amount of physical activity I've been doing. Exhaustion being the main one and the fact I came very close to burn out today. I was welling up at the thought of running and thats so unlike me! I wanted to run but didn't if that makes sense? I'm also very sore, achey, cold and pretty run down. Like right now I could do with sleeping for a week or two but y'know thats not an option. However I would like to go to sleep a little earlier than I have been of late but when I go to bed I instantly waken up. So frustrating! Luckily I'm heading off to London with my sister next week which will be great as I get to see the whole family and usually when I go to my Dads I tend to relax rather than chase.
