This morning was a real struggle to get to the gym, woke up feeling a bit rough and was having an argument with the mind goblins for ages, they won out to start with as I unbooked myself from the session and then I was like “no, Rachel, you are awake now, move your arse and get to the gym” which is what I did. And it was hard but I was glad I did it as in all honesty I was awake and going back to bed wouldn’t have made me feel any better. So that’s 4 sessions out of 4 this week, what a turnaround from the last few weeks and months!!

I had a full day of lecturing today which went so fast which is good in a way because as the day progressed I started to feel rough, eventually I gave in and came home earlier than I normally do, not at all an issue as I’ve done over my hours this week anyway & all my colleagues had gone home already.

Got home and sat on the sofa and not really moved all evening, started to cough so did a Covid test which came back as negative, so think I’ve just picked up a cold from somewhere & I know that I do tend to get a cough when I’m recovering from it so this might be the tail-end of it hopefully. This cold might explain some of my tiredness this week so hopefully, with a quieter weekend planned I can rest up and recover and crack on with life next week.

Yesterday I also managed to burst a blood vessel in my eye, not sure when it happened but looked in the mirror to see a blood red dot on my eye, after a bit of Googling I was reassured it was nothing serious, it doesn’t hurt and hasn’t affected my vision, just looks a bit weird, hopefully, in a day or two, it will dissipate.

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.
