Managed to get to the gym this morning, wasn’t really feeling it as my right knee is giving me gip at the moment but I’m determined to go and if I have to stop or alter the workout then that’s what I’ll do and I know I’ll always feel better for going.

To help with my ongoing fatigue, I’ve been making bone broth, something I’ve seen trending on social media for years but never did any investigation into the benefits as I’m always very sceptical about this kind of thing, however, a friend and fellow nutritionist had said she had tried it and felt that it had helped her so I thought what the heck and give it a try. I spoke to a local pig farmer and they sell the trotters (apparently these are the best things to use), at a bargain price of 50p per trotter. If I’m honest it’s a bit gruesome so tend to not look at them too closely and simply put them in my slow cooker for 12 hours along with some vegetables. I then strain it and boil it a bit more with some seasoning to make it more palatable. I’ve only made it twice and each time I’ve changed the recipe slightly so will perfecting this but can see it’s something I do regularly, is my health improving because of it? God knows but it can’t do me any harm (I don’t think)!!

Today I attended one of my first in person meetings of the last two years and it was just lovely, so nice to see people and have a proper conversation. I know that the pandemic has taught us loads of things and there are a few things that I will continue to do but I don’t think we can ever replace physical human interaction and I for one love it!

Whether it is to do with my dyslexia but I just find it so hard to engage with meetings online, I’m ok with one to one session, although if I had a choice I’d do these in person but, that’s not always feasible as I have friends all over the UK and globally so technology allows me to speak them but locally I’m making a real effort to get out and have coffee (and possibly cake) with friends.

This week I am relishing that human contact for sure.

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.
