October 2021 – In a blur

I know I probably say this every month but October is just a blur to me!!

At the moment my life is rammed full of doing, for most of October I worked full time at the uni to help the team out as well as run the business. At the time of being asked to go full-time tempoarily the business was fairly quiet, I was in the process of reviewing what I do with the view of moving the business forward I had invested in some marketing support from a great friend who runs a strategic marketing agency and was excited about the potential. As soon as I started full-time enquiries for the business started to come in. I’m not in a position to turn down work so had to say yes to it all and workout later how I’d get it all done!! I got it all done…

However, this meant working 12-14 hour days for over 3 weeks straight even at the weekends!

Eventually, I realised it wasn’t sustainable and had taken on too much and as much as I love the lecturing, the team I work with, and my students I realised that my heart was firmly with the business, and lecturing part-time is what works for me and although this might be the tougher path to take, I’m up for walking along it.

With working so much my exercise routine went out the window, managed to maintain my eating and sleep routine quite well but was far too tired to do anything other than work, sleep, and eat.

I don’t feel like I’ve had time to take a breath at all this month, it’s all just go go go! It’s a nice problem to have, having work coming in as it is, it’s just finding a balance between doing and being!!

Hopefully in November that balance will come…

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.
