April 2022 – Head down, crack on!

April went in a bit of a blur really. It got to the 1st and I realised that a workshop I was delivering was in less than three weeks, plenty of time to prepare, however, I had to account for the long Easter weekend during this preparation time.

I look back at my calendar and every day I’ve simply written workshop!! It was on my mind 24/7! For some, this might feel stressful but this is when I’m in my element as I know the long days and late nights will be worth it when I deliver a fantastic day of training.

I have this single vision and determination to ensure every detail of the training is as I want it to be, I work tirelessly to achieve this and probably become a bit obsessive about it at times.

The workshop was on the 20th April nearly a month ago now and in a way I still can’t believe I pulled it off!! Even though I’ve been a trainer for over two decades I still have my niggles of self-doubt and the mind gremlins get rather shouty leading up to an event. The feedback I received was excellent and got a score of 4.33 out of 5 for the workshop overall. I was so proud of what I had delivered.

It took me a good week to recover as I ended up doing over 22k steps and walking 16km during the day. I was completely spent by the time I got home.

Other than this my month was a little bit frustrating exercise-wise as my knee was still not better! It was getting better but then this workshop put my recovery back as my knee certainly didn’t like being active for over 12 hours! And every time I thought about going back to the box/gym I lost my nerve a little.

However, on a plus side, I was generally feeling a lot less fatigued than in the previous few months and was still taking the herbal tincture that Hannah had prepared for me.

I also started doing a 100-day challenge in the run up to my birthday in July, since my birthday last year I’ve been writing a daily blog about transforming my life in 365 days! In April I realised that it would be 100 days until my birthday so why not challenge myself to do something every day as you know I love a challenge!!

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.
