I’ve got the fabulous food and fitness feeling!
Well on Monday I started another live online Body Blast with a wonderful group of women and I’ve been very focused with food and training, had the odd glass of wine – my ultimate combination!
Also on Monday, which is very unlike me, I had a splitting head ache and I felt really overwhelmed with the amount of work I had to do this week… So I spoke to my team, asked permission from some of my clients to adjust the timings of a couple of things and I spent the afternoon in bed, totally relaxing after I had been for a nice power walk . My parents have been away for four weeks now who are a massive help with my twins and when you’ve worked all week, then spent all weekend with your children, and not had enough downtime, something has got to give!
Just giving myself permission to take just a few hours out was priceless and as a result, I had a great night’s sleep, felt recharged on Tuesday morning and had some great training sessions. Plus what was taking me a hours in the office on Monday morning, took me minutes once I’d had some time out.
Motto for us all – BEND DON’T BREAK!
