Busy Busy Busy…

Hello Lovelies!

I did write this blog yesterday or as near as dam it and it decided to delete it as I posted it so me and wordpress had a bit of a fall out yesterday, but here I am trying again! Just a warning it was a bit of a life story as well yesterday so no doubt it will be verging on that again!

Firstly, apologies for not posting for a while I have had a few days off work and it has been non stop. I thought a long weekend off work was going to be a nice little break but oh no how wrong was I! I have been gardening, decorating, cleaning, shopping and catching up with friends. (I have never realised how exhausting cutting down hedges and rolling paint on walls actually was). I also went to Soccer Aid on Sunday which was a great day out! What I’m trying to say really is I haven’t done my exercises for the past week but I haven’t exactly just sat on my bottom and done nothing that’s for sure! So please don’t be too disappointed in me haha…

So its the 13th June, and on the 18th I have an exam.. providing I pass this exam my college studies will be over for a few months (till September at least) with the odd bit of uni work to do throughout summer but nothing too stressful SO I bet you are thinking why you telling me this… I have had a good long think about the next 12 months and I have decided to take a gap year from my AAT studies, there are a couple of reasons behind this decision the main one being that over the past 2 years I have come to realise I’m not wonder women and I have taken on far too much so if I take a year out this gives me time to finish uni and then put my effort into college afterwards. Also another factor is funding; if I take a year out when I enrol in August 2015 I will be 24 and eligible for a 24+ loan so it beats having to pay £2250 just to study the course never mind fund the books and pay my AAT membership. Anyway as I have come to this decision I have also thought it is going to be good for myself having my week nights back and not working 13 hour days can only be a good thing? I wont be getting in from college at near 10pm raiding cupboards to find something quick to eat before bed etc.. I am hoping make this negative into a positive (negative because I would love to carry on and get qualified by this time next year but money just isn’t allowing it too) and the positive being that I can concentrate on myself for a year, exercise wise I can go to the gym in the mornings or after work and not think ‘eugh 13 hour days and then I’m coming to the gym’. It is actually exhausting so as of this time next week I would love to have a plan in place and get myself organised as to what I need to do and concentrate on etc.. I love making lists and end up making lists for lists and also get a bit OCD about them so I’m hoping that will have a positive effect as I do know organisation is key and the fact I will have a bit more energy will hopefully spur me on!

If anyone has any ideas of how I can get organised and are willing to help me pretty much sort my life out haha, I would appreciate it majorly… Any ideas welcome and will be taken on board! So i am in fact pleading with my followers to kick my ass into gear and reduce the size of it really!

If you have read this far, thank you! Hope you are all doing brilliantly on your journeys!

  1. firstly, having to take a year off is a shame, but if it is the best thing for you at the moment then it is a good thing, it is only a postponement 🙂 so well done for looking at it positively!

    As for organisational ideas, I am not the best person to advise you on organisation (I so often end up doing my workout at 10pm!) but what I would say is find an exercise / activity that is also a hobby that you really enjoy,this will make you want to exercise!

    no matter how long or bad my day is on a wednesday, I look forward to dancing and it makes everything better…no matter how tired / ill / grumpy etc I am!

    so I would say try stuff out.. dancing, martial arts, climbing, anything that takes your fancy and you will find one that you really enjoy, then it will be exercise without you having to force yourself to do it.
    the other advantage is that an active hobby makes you want to do other exercise to get better at it 🙂

    • this is a good idea, I used to be a semi professional dancer and did it 6 days a week its what I basically lived for I was so passionate about it and it was enjoyable and never a chore so it would be great if I could get back into something like that, although I do feel as though I need to lose weight before I do it again if that makes sense? I really started enjoying body combat/group kick or whatever they want to call it these days at the start of this year if you remember; I feel as though I fit in better there with my build at the moment. I think I need to explore a few things and find out what i really do enjoy these days as I feel as though I will feel totally out of place dancing and even if I do it like yourself just once a week at least its getting me active whatever it may be that I choose. I have been trying to find a rounders team I know i would love that but doesn’t seem to be any in my area 😦

      • try out as many things as you can find 🙂

        the things you enjoy will probably surprise you…I never really thought I would be completely addicted to morris dancing…it is every weekend as wells as wednesdays at the moment and I love it!

        if you like combat/ kick then try a kickboxing / kung fu type club.

        also, I am sure you could find some sort of dance that you could do, the best way to get fit for an activity is to do that activity, and even just doing it once a week would spur you on to get fitter 😀

      • you’ve spurred me on already and I have just enquired about making a rounders team haha! i love it, such a geek! I don’t particularly like the martial arts thing but I feel as though I fit in better with that kind of stuff at the moment! Bet you feel so good finding something you love doing that keeps you active. I need to get researching what else is available to do in my area

      • 😀 yeay!!

        Starting a team is such a good idea, there are bound to be other people who want to play too!

        I would say if you love dance, then dance…

        ooooh…are there any capoeira classes near you? it is a brazillian dance / martial arts cross it looks awesome!!

        yes…do research, and try out lots of things…most places do the first class free so you lose nothing if you don’t like it 😀

      • i did capoeira at school, god that seems so long ago now haha

        i will do i normally say to myself give things a tr 6 times before deciding but that could take me a while haha
