Saturday 5th March 2022

Saturday means one thing – Intervals! Was really up for it today seeing as I didn’t do any formal exercise yesterday. It was a 3 person workout but as one person didn’t turn up I ended up in a 4 rather than 2 pairs! However, it contained lots of squats and my right knee is just not right at the moment, so had to abandon the workout after 18 minutes as my knee wasn’t very happy. I felt bad for letting the other 3 people down and pissed off with my body for not working as it should but I know that when I get certain signals I have to stop so the rest of the workout I did a steady cycle on the bike just to feel like I’d done a workout. I will book a session with my physio this week for them to have a look at it.

Normal Saturday ritual of the food shop after intervals, today however I hardly needed anything and was back home by 9am! Chilled for a bit before getting ready to head out for lunch with a friend.

I got the bus into the city as usually we have quite a few drinks end inevitably I miss the last bus home and end up having to get a taxi. However, today I was determined not to drink too much and get the bus home. As soon as I saw my friend I said that I WAS getting the bus home, she was cool with this as both of us seem to be struggling a little with the blues after drinking alcohol and decided that we would save the blow-outs for birthdays and Christmas and the lunches in between would be more sensible!! Lunch was lovely and we shared a bottle of white wine. We then decided to have one cocktail before having coffee and cake to round the day off!! It was absolutely lovely. We have been friends for over a decade and always have a right laugh when we are together, mainly putting the world to rights!

I was home by about 5.20pm so have had a chilled evening, drinking plenty of water and watching a movie! And now I’m in bed writing this blog post. As each day passes, I give more and more thanks to the life I have as feel so grateful for the struggles I’ve had over the years as it’s made me who I am today & and got me to a good place.

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.
