Bye bye student loan

January 11, 2013

I paid my student loan off! No more debt… Until I go back to uni… The plan is to start a masters in physiotherapy either in September or January.

I’m proud to be 22 and have paid my loan off. Hard work and saving money pays off. Throughout my time at university I had at least one part time job. However, I feel sorry for the kids at uni now who face tuition fees that are up to 9 grand. Hello to an elitist society. I would never have been able to go to university if this had been the case when I started. I’m not surprised if this leads to a further class division. Why punish intelligence?


Stress and more stress

Sometimes all I want after a long week is to chill and think positively. I say hello to the weekend despite working tomorrow.

Weekend bliss

January 6, 2013

When I was at uni, weekends were never that special. Everyday seemed to be the same. In my first two years we normally went out in the middle of the week and weekends were time for house parties and studying. In my final year of uni I spent most of my weekends working at a gym. Since I started working at a 9-5 job, weekends have become sacred to me. They are used to relax, prepare for the week, cook for the week, catch up on my Yoga studies, chill with my boyfriend, long runs and relaxing baths. 

Yesterday was a day of training. expect for two half hour walks and 30 minutes of stretching, I left my body to recover. I enjoyed a lie in until 9am! Spent the morning studying and in the evening me and my boyfriend made a yummy fish pie with soy milk and sweet potato mash for a healthier version. we also made a batch of brownies. A colleague gave me a recipe on fat free black bean brownies. The only issue was they didn’t really cook very well and were really moist, a bit too moist… It might be because we used melted dark chocolate rather than cocoa as suggested in the original recipe. 

But if anyone is interested, replace the fat with bananas, use argarve suryp (and stevia if the mixture is too fluid) instead of sugar and mixed black beans instead of flour. You get a healthy treat that is high in protein and also has a portion of fruit in it. Winner!


New Year, New Me…

January 3, 2013

How many people do you hear say that? how many people give it up after a week or maybe a few months? In order to reach your goals you need to be focused, determined and motivated. 

My most important resolution is to make every workout count. To give everything every single minute/second. I’m on it. Who else is? let’s make 2013 the fitest year ever!Image


Thursday

November 22, 2012

Almost the weekend now! I’m going north to load my batteries with walks on the moor and chilled nights in. Good food and catching up with life is on the schedule. As well as writing some informative blog posts and planning some classes.

Today I have yawned my way through work, strengthened my muscles and now on my way home for some yoga and reading. Going up early to squeeze the gym in before work and then getting the train after


Yoga

November 20, 2012

Have had a busy day and enjoyed a relaxing second yoga class this week to end the day a bit more chilled. I am so excited about my new phone that I can actually update my blog with! No excuses to not keep updating now!
Anyways, time for some sleep now. Sleep well everyone 🙂
