Yay, for the first in a while I haven’t cried today! Well, there still is time… :0)

Started off with a workout, today was intervals and I was paired with a lovely guy called Tom! At one point in the workout I suggested that there should be an easier workout for us oldies (I hasten to add, I know I’m not old in any way, shape, or form but when you are working out with people in their 20s then you do feel your age somewhat!), he joked that we didn’t need that and that I wasn’t as old as him, subsequently, I asked his age and he said 37 and then I disclosed that I was 44, he was really shocked as he thought that I was in my early 30s (I was very flattered by this!!), and went on to say that I’ve must have had an easy life!! I haven’t (don’t think anyone does really) however, what I do have is good nutrition and diet and have done for most of my life and especially in the last 13 years since qualifying as a nutritionist.

For the most part, my diet is on point, I make a real conscious effort to feed my body with good food, packed with nutrients and with lots of variety so that I give my body what it needs to do its job well – keeping me alive and well!!

I often forget that I’m lucky to have all this knowledge in my head and probably take it for granted that I know what I’m doing in the kitchen around food and what to eat.

Once back from the workout, I got ready to deliver a guest lecture for one of my colleagues about workplace culture and wellbeing to their group of students – I spent hours yesterday writing my presentation and it went down really well, the feedback I got was fantastic – a good reminder that I am actually very good at what I do and to push myself more to put that out there for more people to benefit.

I screenshot all the positive comments to save for the days I’m not feeling so confident and need a boost.

So today – I know I fucking smashed it!! I’m not great at celebrating my successes but today I will as I did a great job!!

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.
