Stress Head!

Posted Aug 31 2010 11:05am
What a stressful couple of days, hello! I hope yours have been calm unlike mine?
Its full steam ahead here in Bournemouth and I'm feeling the pressure that's for sure. I have an 8 week session plan to complete by Friday but my tutor has the work so I can't get it finished, I have my nutrition exam and case study Thursday and need to revise for that and I have to also get my spinning routine sorted for Friday when we have our assessment on that!


This is last 2 weeks on the course and 1 of those is nearly over already so much work and so little time, yet here I am doing a blog post!? My reasoning for this is bloggging keeps the stress at bay. Does that sound crazy? For me my blog is a total stress re-leaver. I can air my frustrations and know there are friends that will give me the strength I need to get on with it, so thanks peeps : )

I have a couple of days food to show so I'll keep it short and sweet
Monday started with a chocolate and almond smoothie

Topped with raisins and almonds perfect exam fuel

I had my Anatomy and Physiology exam and I think I did pretty well, I found this L3 paper a lot easier than the L2 saying that I probably got it all wrong!

Mid morning snackage: oat cakes, tahini and cinnamon : )

I had quinoa, raw veggies and a boiled egg for lunch


Before lunch we were put in pairs and given 2 training systems to teach the rest of the group, after lunch we all met at the gym and in our pairs taught the rest of the group. I hate talking in front of a whole group but I'm facing the fear and doing ok, plus I better get used to it if I'm ever going to take classes!

Home time came and we went food shopping, here are a few of the sweeter purchases I acquired.
dark choc chips and some pulsin discs, I found the only health food store in Bournemouth a couple of weeks ago and went back to get some healthy treats : )

I got back to the hotel threw 10 almonds down my neck and went out for a run in the sun with one of the girls Noeleen. We ran for 35 minutes, it was a tough run lots of hills and steps : )

Dinner was fab, steamed veggies in a tom and garlic sauce with olive tofu, I picked the tofu up at the health food store too.

It was real tasty, I followed this with some blueberries, soy yogurt and choc chips no picture sorry!


My Tuesday started with a vanilla and tahini smoothie again no photo sorry, bad food blogger!
Then it was off to the gym for an early morning spin class, this is our last before Fridays assessment. We each do 3 tracks to the rest of the class which is quite a terrifying thought but I gotta get over the fear as I would love to be a spin teacher, I just hate the thought of getting up there with everyone staring at me!

I was feeling the need for coffee today so I fed the craving with a black coffee with brown sugar, I never usually take sugar in my coffee but today I did

This morning was spent doing planning for my 8 week gym plan

Mid morning snack: rice cakes and almond butter : )

More quinoa for lunch today teamed with raw veggies and tuna

After lunch we were back in the gym for a stretching workshop. I really enjoyed this, we were doing assisted stretches on each other. I didn't realize how tight my muscles were, safe to say they are all sorted now!

Got back around 4.30pm and had some carrots, oat cakes and tahini sprinkled with cinnamon

Dinner was exactly the same as yesterdays but today I added 1/2 and avocado

Followed by blueberries, an apple, soy yogurt and coconut sprinkled with cinnamon.

I guess I better get revising but first I'll have a little read of some of your blogs, I also find that relaxing I love catching up with your days : )

Bye for now x x


Do you get scared of talking in front of large groups/ shouting in front of a whole class of people!?

I really don't like it and the thought of my spin assessment really does scare me but I'm gonna take it full steam ahead and hope I remember all the moves!
