Hi Pretty People!!!
I am struggling to comprehend how the last post I put on this blog was December of last year! That’s almost four whole months!
I have really missed writing blog posts and all the interaction that comes with it, but I have been so run off my feet I havn’t had the chance to sit down and write. I wanted any post I put on my blog to be perfect, or at least as high a standard as I can possibly produce, and because of that perfectionist streak and my lack of time, it stopped me writing at all. This is really sad, but something I’m sure people who blog or write as a hobby have experienced during busy times in their lives.
I started a new course this January, the National Qualification in Exercise, Health Studies and Personal training. This is a new direction for me in terms of what I wanted to do with my life. I’ve often written on this blog about my struggles to shed the weight I quickly gained from medication and binge eating, but when I started going to the gym, I realised this is really good for my mental health as well. I’m really enjoying the course, though the practical aspect of having to get up and teach in front of tutors terrifies me! Also my official exams have started this week, we have about a million (only a slight exaggeration!) which run until the 9th of June so my whole life is taken over with anatomy, physiology, myology, sport nutrition, group fitness and resistance training study. I am planning on doing a full write up about the experience when the course is over in June so stay tuned for that! All study tips, prayers and well wishes totally welcome!
Also, really wonderful news, myself and Darragh bought a house!!! We’ve been looking since late last year and found a stunning house in a new build just outside of Dublin. We are so excited and on countdown to when it’s built which will hopefully be the end of the summer. We had been waiting on the edge of our seats for the call they were going on sale and we did the crazy queueing over night thing, but it was all worth it in the end. We are so excited and can not wait to move in. It also takes up a huge chunk of our time so you can see why I have been too busy to blog!! Again this is something I am hoping to do a post on and put up pictures of the new house as we decorate it and make it our own. Keep an eye on my snapchat (mbblog) for more of that.
So that is just a little update as I wanted people who had stuck by me even when the blog has been quiet I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU AND THANKS SO MUCH! Also just to let you know I still love blogging, even though I know there’s been a lot of controversy recently about the blogging world, I still think it’s a truly wonderful past time and I can’t wait to share all the wonderful things that are going on in our lives when we have time!!
I will be attending SportsMind next Friday after I enjoyed MiMind so much last year and this is now a huge area of my life I am really enjoying learning and developing in. Am hoping to try get a blog post, (even if it’s not perfect) written on that!
Thanks again to everyone who stuck with me during this quiet time on the blog!
