I must have no manners, writing up posts before getting acquainted first. Pardon my rudeness, my mum did teach me about manners!
Here it all goes, my name is Lennae Stubbs, I have a supportive and loving husband named Cameron, a black and white cuddly kitty-cat called Barry, he is very snuggley most of the time. I am the eldest of four siblings, I have a loving and supportive family. I am kiwi born living in sunny Wollongong, NSW, Australia. I am also very lucky to have my family based here as well, so lots of love and support around me. I have a few close friends that are very supportive they all know who they are!
Before I gave up work I was working in a bank (not my dream job, but it brings in the bacon). I was quite an active girl, always going for walks with my darling hubby, bush walks, and starting to do a bit of running. I was training to run my first 1/2 marathon! I also visited the gym regularly and I love practicing yoga.
I have a love for health and fitness, food and nutrition. When I am well enough my dream would be to pursue a career in that area.
I have a massive love for smoothies, I enjoy making up new flavours daily. I also enjoying reading, I love watching Modern Family and Game of Thrones!!! I enjoy traveling, visiting, seeing and learning about new places. As soon as I’m well enough one of my big goals is to travel South and Central America with my husband.
Having this illness isolates me a lot from the real world, it can be a bit lonely. I wanted to start this blog to connect with fellow spoonies (A person living with chronic illness, refer to Christine Miserandino’s Spoon Theory) like myself. I want to share all my healthy recipes with the world, I strongly believe health is wealth. Eating well can do wonders for your health! I also want to share on my blog all things positive and just a general insight on my health journey. This blog also gives me a purpose, us spoonies do need a bit of variety in our lives, we may not be able to get up to a lot but we still need goals and enjoyments.
At the moment I am in a pretty good place with my recovery. My weeks consist of light duties around the house like cooking meals, washing dishes, making the bed and putting out the rubbish. I can manage a few outings and light exercises. I am currently lifting 2kg weights! I also live 2 blocks from the beach so I stroll there regularly. I can’t manage all these activities in one day, but I am slowly getting there. I do have flare ups regularly, I’m trying to stay as positive as I can about them. I’m learning to respect and learn from CFS/ME, it won’t magically go away. I am doing everything I can to have a happy and full recovery.
Well that’s all the important stuff, below are some photos!
Bye for now
