The morning started well as I had prepped all my stuff ready for today last night!! Got to the gym and managed to get a personal best in one of the workouts which is awesome, but not what I was expecting at all. My fitness isn’t anywhere near where it was a couple of years ago so at the moment I’m just happy to be back at the gym moving my body & just enjoying it rather than focusing on the long journey back to the fitness level I want to be at.

Today was a uni day and a colleague and I were watching our students do assessed presentations. It is so lovely to see them grow into the people they want to be, this semester they have all been out on placements with local businesses and it’s really given them the confidence & belief that they were lacking at the beginning of the academic year. I’m really proud of how far they have come and how much they have developed.

On a bit of a sour note, my car is broken again!! Yesterday when driving back from the lake I had an alert on the dash for an engine malfunction and required an immediate service, not what you want to see when you are doing 60mph on a busy road & on a Sunday when the garage is closed! I managed to get home yesterday and get to the gym this morning and then limped the car to the uni, called the garage up and thankfully they said that I was to bring the car to them & they would look at it. I’ve had a few car issues over the last few years so they bend over backwards to sort it out, so they provided me with a courtesy car while mine is getting sorted, just hoping it’s not what I think it will be as that will wipe out all my savings! I’ve not cried about it yet so I guess that’s progress as last year this would have completely floored me & put me into a tailspin but I’ve accepted it is what it is and will deal with whatever happens.

A quiet evening tonight as watching presentations is quite intense and an early night.

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.
