Today I admitted defeat, the last couple of weeks I’ve been working fulling time at the uni and running the business, this was to help cover for a colleague who was off work.

Initially, when I said I’d do it the business was fairly quiet so felt that I could fit everything in, however as soon as I said yes to this, new work started coming into the business.

Both offer me great opportunities and I’ve relished the challenge, however, ultimately I’ve realised I can’t do both like this as both roles require a lot of energy and I simply didn’t feel like I was doing either of them justice.

So today, I admitted that I was struggling to fit it all in, in a way I feel like I’m letting the team down as we are all fairly busy so someone else will have to pick up the bits I can’t do and feeling guilty about this but I know sometimes you have to look out for yourself and if I fall over (metaphorically) that would be even worse for me and the team in the long run.

I’m not one for admitting I’m struggling as usually I can figure a way out myself but in this instance I needed help!

Am working hard this week to get some order and discipline back into my days so that I achieve what I want to achieve, although I’ve not done my 30 minutes cleaning each day yet or started watching Jay Shetty’s video but I have prepped for tomorrow so that my morning will be slightly more relaxed.

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.
