Tuesday 4th January 2022 (Written 05.01.2022)

Last night I was feel smug as fuck that I was really organised for today, I’d got all my food ready as it’s a uni day and was going straight from the gym to uni, got all my clothes ready as well and had this niggling feeling as I got into bed that I’d forgotten something, so I ran through in my head all my to-dos and decided I was just being silly so read my book and went to sleep.

Driving to the gym about 6.10am, I suddenly went FUUCCKKK I forgot to do this blog post Facepalm!! So am doing it this morning before I forget again…

Yesterday was a full on day, first day back to work proper for 2022 and I was delivering a couple of talks on food and wellbeing at a school for the central support teams, thankfully I have done talks like this before so the prep didn’t take to long as I pulled together slides from other presentations, the only stressful bit was half way through printing out some handouts my printer ran out of black ink, which I didn’t notice as I was getting ready in another room. Luckily I ended up having just enough before the ink ran out! Yay for Amazon prime to get me more ink ASAP.

The talks went really well, this is a part of my business I love as it gives me an opportunity to share my knowledge and help others improve their health and wellbeing through making informed choices.

I put my heart and soul into delivery of talks and workshop so subsequently I’m not much use afterwards as low on energy, yesterday didn’t matter too much as I didn’t have too much to do afterwards so could chill for a bit.

I managed a 10 minute run yesterday morning too, first time I’ve put on my running shoes and gone for a run in probably 9 months, the main motivation for this is that one of my sisters bought me a 100 day scratch off workout challenge, each day you do a specific workout on the poster and when you’ve completed it you scratch the square off! Felt good to be in the fresh air but darn it was hard, I didn’t managed to run for a solid 10 minutes which seems crazy that only a few years ago when I was training for a marathon I could run for 2-3 hours without stopping!! I managed 4 minutes, 3 minutes and 3 minutes running with 1 minute walk in between. It’s a little soul destroying but got to remind myself that it will soon come back if I put the work in consistently.

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.

  1. I *really* need to get out running. The last few days – on schedule for me wanting to do it – a nose and throat virus appeared. I did a rapid test today just to make sure – thankfully it was negative.
