Travelling Tour

October 12, 2018

 

So.. I haven’t been keeping up with my posts as I believed I would or would be able to. 

 

I miss it, of course I do. I just wish there was more hours in the day and most importantly I wish I had the energies to keep buzzing and working. 

 

Maybe I was a little optimistic, forgetting all about my health issues and barriers. I still have the mind of the swimmer in working force. I believe and expect myself to be able to do everything. I always want to give 100 per cent into everything I take on and carry out and of course this trip has been very full on. Very. Now, I knew this would be the case before we kicked off the tour but I still believed I could keep juggling and working through everything.

 

To a certain extent I have managed to keep up my emails, Instagram, private messages and done bits and pieces of my blog here and there but sometimes exhaustion is just so great my brain can’t function enough to keep on going. We get very little down time and the down time we do get we are so exhausted we try to sleep. 

 

That said, the trip has been very eye opening and interesting. I’ve learnt so much and I will cover that in more detail once I am back home. We still have until Wednesday here and so I need to re-charge my batteries as much as I can as I am flashing on low. Run down with a cold and battling food intolerance reactions on top of full pack days and socialising is a lot. 

 

I always try to keep all informed, answer messages so people know I am still there for them and show my journey. I feel that is incrediblely important and I don’t want that part of my work to slip. Seeing me being pro-active inspires others and that’s what I hope from the work I do. 

 

We are now in our final country of the trip Italy - the home of pizzas ( my favourite food) so this is a hard part of the trip for me.. as my greedy eyes look in envy at everyone else’s plates. 

 

On the plus side at least I am always in a sober state of mind.. I can’t risk feeling any worse when we have to kick start the day early and have late feelings. 

 

 

Once I am home I will go through all the finding, stories and adventures that have come out of this fab tour. 

 

Cheers to a blessed weekend.

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
