Today has been a mental battle!

I got up to fed the cat when my alarm went off and then decided that I wasn’t going to the gym so cancelled my place and went back to bed, 2 minutes later I had an argument with myself that I wouldn’t feel any better for not going to the gym, got myself up, rebooked myself into the gym and cracked on with getting ready and I’m glad I did, I don’t think you ever regret a workout, especially when it’s slinging iron (barbell & weights) around.

I was at the uni today and that was tough too, I know I am more than capable of teaching the students but my brain and body are saying otherwise and felt like I was on an emotional knife-edge all day.

The tears came as I was driving home and have felt out of sorts for the rest of the day/evening. I just feel a little overwhelmed with life at the moment, I know I do it to myself as I’m so driven to succeed that I push my own buttons to achieve more and more as the days/weeks and months pass! I realise I’m doing it until I get this feeling and need to stop and re-group!

Will give myself a good talking to once I’ve finished this blog post and tomorrow will be another day…

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
