week 28 & 29 : what have I been learning about this week? Plus the trials and tribulations of a Personal Trainer/Entrepreneur in training

Right let me update you on what has been going on in Abi’s world…week 28 & 29…


I am so sorry that I didn’t manage to get a post up last weekend. Everything just got on top of me and writing up this wasn’t at the top of my priority list!

As you can see I am actually now away on holiday and am writing this from my airbnb in Venice!

The last two weeks have just been a bit of a blur, with lots of clients getting ready for their own holidays, me trying to get things prepared before I go away, plus work on my own secret project. My anxiety levels were through the roof, and there were a couple of occasions where I just had to sit and do nothing as I just didn’t know where to start with anything. However, after speaking to mentors and a couple of other people, I came to realisation that what didn’t get done, just wouldn’t get done and that wouldn’t be the end of the world. Life would still go on. All I could do was my best.

I went to Leeds to see my friends from school and celebrate Charlie’s birthday, it was so lovely to see them and really did give me a welcome day off and chill out.

My sister went to Spain and surprised my parents which was so lovely of her and I was super jealous of all the photos they were sending me through! But I am so excited for my own adventure this summer, we have spent past couple of days in Venice, before heading to Slovenia, Croatia and then Montenegro. A little bit of a European road trip! I will be trying to blog quite a lot and get some youtube videos up so stay tuned!

In terms of trying to ‘stay on track’ whilst I am away; I have brought with me some resistance bands and a skipping rope as I am not sure how much access I will have  to gyms. This means it will more than likely be lots of bodyweight work and dare I say it even some running! But as I have mentioned previously, I live this lifestyle because I enjoy it. I love the feeling of being fit and healthy, it helps with my mindset and inner peace as well. So I know if I was to take 3 weeks off entirely then I would go completely doolally! If I don’t feel like exercising one day then I won’t, but I like to have the option. In terms of food, I will be sensible but you can bet your bottom dollar there will be plenty of ice creams happening!

Right, time to get on with the day! Speak next week!

Double whammy of what I have learnt in the past couple of weeks!! Weeks 28 & 29 coming up…

24th: Spar shop originated in the Netherlands.

25th: Stephen Perry patented his idea for the rubber band in 1845. The London businessman came up with the invention after Charles Goodyear introduced rubber to the world in 1839.

26th: G-rated family films earn more money than any other rated films; however, only 4% of Hollywood’s output is G-rated.

27th: Zythology is the study of beer and beer making.

28th: Contrary to popular belief, there are no wild tigers in Africa.

29th: Pearls dissolve in vinegar.

30th: The white part of an egg is called the albumen.

31st: There are 314 Ikea stores in 38 countries, 30 of which are franchises. IKEA is an acronym which stands for the founders initials and hometown (Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd)

1st: The busiest airport in the world is Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport with more than 106 million passengers in 2016. London Heathrow is only number 7.

2nd: In the summer heat, the iron in France’s Eiffel Tower expands, making the tower grow more than 6 inches.

3rd: There are 60,000 habitants of Venice, and 55,000 tourists descend on the place every day!

4th: Both “equinox” and “solstice” refer to the path of the sun throughout the year. During a solstice, the sun is either at its northernmost point (Tropic of Cancer) or it is at its southernmost point (Tropic of Capricorn). An equinox is either of the two days each year when the sun crosses the equator and both day and night are equally long.

5th: There are more than 400 bridges in Venice —but only four to five bridges span across the mighty Grand Canal.

Love Abi xxxx
