Forget the training, this was Mollie’s first ever week at school! So proud, apart from a melt down on one day she did so well, and even that day once she was in school she was fine! Image is on her way to school and a cheeky cookie after her first day 🙂
Also started Jujitsu with Mira this week – St. Albans BJJ. Such a friendly club and so awesome to be back doing martial arts again! Love constantly learning new things and improving on what I know, it’s an old addage, but if you are standing still you are going backwards!
Another analogy I love is the blade – a sharp blade soon becomes blunt if you don’t hone it regularly. Learn, practice, develop and stay sharp in what’s important to you! But also make time for play – for me sport and martial arts etc are play, they are how I wind down, even if I’m also learning, I find this really helps my focus and drive on the more ‘work’ like things in life (even though I am lucky enough to enjoy most of my work!).
Really pleased with how things are moving, weights I used to grind out are moving super smoothly for multiple sets and reps #progress
