After a week-long holiday of meals out and long lazy lunches, this Friday it was back to cooking every day.
I’m not going to say too much today, instead I’m going to let one of my amazing clients do that for me, she recently completed my Slim 6 programme…
If you work full time, have kids to look after and want to find spare time for yourself it’s very difficult. If you want to start exercising it becomes even more difficult, as when you do find some spare time you’re usually too tired to do anything except sit on the sofa!
A few weeks ago, I had a nightmare journey getting home from work. It took me three and a half hours to get home. It should take an hour and a quarter.
My son and I have a little ritual, every Wednesday we head out of the house at around 9.30am and go to our local coffee shop. It’s a lovely little place with exposed brick work, ambient music and big comfy chairs to sit on.
Today is my first proper day back at work after a week-long holiday. We went to visit my parents and their dog Frankie, who live in Spain. The week was extremely relaxing, mostly spent playing in the pool with my son, as well as a visit to the beach, a few walks in the hills along the rugged coastline and lots of food.
This week my son started his settling in sessions at his new nursery. After I dropped him off and we’d both shed a tear, I had 3 hours to kill before I had to collect him. I drove to a local coffee shop, laptop in hand and began working.
Every day I wear black clothes to work. Black t-shirt, black joggers and black trainers. The night before I prep the same breakfast, I get out my cafetière ready to have the same drink (black coffee) in the same cup.
Every Monday and Wednesday I work from home. I do this so that I can spend time with my son and look after him before he starts at his new Nursery.
My wife makes the best chilli con carne in the world. It’s seriously good. It might even be my favourite food ever, which for someone who loves food as much as I do (except mushrooms obvs) is a big claim.
