Quite a chilled day, an early wake up with Sophiecat but managed to get an hour in after I fed her.

Today I went to the lake for a swim the water was around 13.4°C so was still cold when you first get in but once you are acclimatised to it then it was lovely, only did 2 small laps about 18 minutes of swimming as knew I was tired from the week, it was just relaxing to get in the water and just float on my back!!

Once home, I grabbed some food and then decided to cook my roast dinner early to have an early tea as planned to go for a walk with my friend.

I spoke to my herbalist yesterday and she is going to send me some more herbs to take for a couple more weeks before we can meet up to have a review. I’ve been taking the tincture twice a day for a month and do feel like the weight of tiredness I’ve been carrying around for years has been lifted, even this week when I had so much going on I felt tired but not the heaviness I’ve felt in the past which is utterly amazing.

I’m planning on going back to the gym in the morning which I’m a bit apprehensive about as it’s been nearly 5 weeks since I last went but know that once I get there tomorrow, each day after that will become easier. I’m starting my 95-day challenge tomorrow. The plan is each day for the next 55 days to:

  • Eat healthy food
  • No cake, chocolate, biscuits, sweets & crisps
  • 2 x exercise a day – one being outside
  • No alcohol
  • Drink 3 litres of water
  • Read at least 5 pages of a self-development book
  • Fill out a page in the self-discovery book

I know this might sound a lot, personally it’s not really as I do most of this regularly anyway or I did in the past and want to get back into the routine of it all again… wish me luck as I know that there will be days when it will be hard!!

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.
