Saturday 8th January 2022

After a later sleep time than normal last night, I had a real fight in my head this morning about going to intervals as well as being worried about the roads being icy, as walking back from my friend’s I was slipping all over the place.

The just do it voice in my brain won out and I got up and out to give me time to defrost the car, when I opened the front door I was confronted with rain, not ice so didn’t need to defrost the car and the roads weren’t icy, yay!!

Intervals is always quite hard but today more so especially as I’ve managed to do quite a bit of exercise this week so my body is physically tired. But I got there and I did it!! Pretty pleased with my exercise this week, 3 CrossFit sessions, 2 intervals and the first 5 days of the 100-day exercise challenge. At the end of December, I took photos of myself in a bikini so I’ve got some way to compare myself as I continue to exercise, I also did my body measurements using string rather than a tape measure as I’m not really that interested in the numbers I just want to feel healthier and be slightly smaller. Maybe at the end of this transformation, I will measure the pieces of string and see how many inches I’ve lost but for now, I’ll just use them as a marker in the sand.

Back into my normal routine of going food shopping after intervals and it was very much needed as the fridge was looking very bare.

Once I got home shopping, all my energy seemed to disappear! I had planned to continue doing some house sorting today by making a start on the kitchen, but once I had some breakfast I felt exhausted so haven’t done as much as I would like to, not going to get annoyed about this as I know that sometimes my body knows best and I need to rest.

So, an early night tonight, well not that early for me but feels early as it’s a Saturday night and usually I do stay up a little later than normal as my alarm goes off a bit later on a Sunday morning.

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 did a similar thing with running last year – I started out recording runs on Strava, but quickly realised it was a bit silly – so switched to just taking progress photos of how knackered I looked at the end of each run 🙂


    1. I think we can get so caught up with the numbers that we lose sight of why we are doing it. I know that if I consistently exercise I will get the results I want without stepping on scales or going near a tape measure.
