I Did a Hard Thing

I did I hard thing the other day. I said “No” to someone. Why is it so hard to say no? Is it FOMO? A sense of responsibility? Because we don’t want to anger or disappoint people?

Sometimes you just want a nice a simple soup! Easy to make and with none of the shop-bought nasties…

Fun fact: I hated mushrooms as a child and drove my mum mad picking them out of everything. Nowadays I add mushrooms to loads of meals and erm, I love them. Sorry mum!

What Makes a Good Coach

I had an argument with my coach the other week. Except in was just in my head, because I haven’t got that relationship with him where I can actually have an argument. So I had the conversation in my head instead.

This is how it went:

Yes I know I should be doing X and not Y during a jump*
But I can’t actually do it. I’ve tried not to do Y. But it doesn’t work.
I need something else. I need to find the root cause. I need a strategy. I need to break it down. I need a technique.
Just telling me “you did X again” I want you to do Y. It doesn’t work!

I don’t mean sea views and rock pools.

Turkey and Broccoli Stirfry

I’m on a quest to expand my repertoire of family meals. My kids (6 and 8) are fussy eaters – in particular they don’t like things mixed together. As a result we eat alot of meat and 2 veg. Or fish and 2 veg. Or chicken and 2 veg. You get the picture. It’s really boring for the adults. 

So I’m trying this broccoli and turkey stirfry this weekend. Becasue they like noodles, And turkey. And broccoli… It’s super simple but should be quite tasty too.

We shall see!
