My journey through weight loss, fitness and the new me.

Exams first…

We’ve all experienced that dread that comes with going back to work after New Year.  I’m really lucky in that I work in the construction industy and get to enjoy the two week shut down over the holidays.  A lovely long break!

This year it was less, ‘going back to work’ dread, and more, ‘I’ve got exams coming up’ dread.  My whole holiday was spent studying.  My evil exam (electrical engineering principles) I got through yesterday, with a slightly less evil exam (thermofluid science) coming next week.

Having abandonned the festive junk food and gone back to eating healthy foods I feel so much better.  I’ve got more energy, I can concentrate for longer and I feel less sluggish.  But anything more than that, it’s waiting until after next Wednesday’s exam.

We moved house last month, I work a crazy busy full time job, loads of overtime hours, I’m studying an engineering degree, have two children, two dogs, and a partridge in a pear tree! I don’t mind admitting I’m a bit overwhelmed at the moment.  But I’m not turning to food to destress which is a HUGE win in my books.

So I shall be back with you shortly.  Exams out the way.  Time to eat super clean and super healthy, and half kill myself doing the Insanity workout.

Keeping an eye out for some good new blogs to follow, any recommendations?
