Today Sophiecat woke me up at 3am, 5am and 6am when I finally gave in and fed her, going back to bed afterwards!!

Thankfully due to not drinking very much yesterday I didn’t have a hangover so despite the disturbed night I felt ok.

I did a bit of desk work before I get ready for my swim and as my trisuit arrived I thought I’d try it on and had a bit of a wake-up call as I simply get it past my knees!! I ordered the largest size the brand does and know that it’s supposed to be tight/snug fitting but it has upset me quite a bit.

Since puberty I’ve had big hips, I take after my dad’s side of the family who are/were all quite well/heavy set. I’m under no illusion that I will be a size 8 body shape and I’m ok with that. I just want to feel strong and toned but right now I feel either of those things and not being able to fit into the trisuit has been a massive wake-up call. Time to get real and stop kidding myself about my “healthy lifestyle!”.

I did go my swim today, it was bitterly cold as there was a crosswind at the lake which meant at times the water was wiping in your face but I did it which is an achievement as definitely a mind over matter thing today.

This afternoon, I’ve been out to meet a friend for a coffee and a chat, which was really nice, this is another friend I’ve known for ages and we are in quite similar life situations so great to share ideas and support each other.

Tonight is going to be a relaxed one reading the paper and a bit of Tellybox, I’ve got a full-on week coming up so need to be well-rested for it!

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.
