forests, meal prep, nutrition, recreation, resolutions, running, woods
2018 has been pretty good to me so far. In January I started a temporary position with the Forestry Commission for HR Events running 20 transitional events across England’s woods and forests. It’s a lovely environment to be in and I really hope that the job lasts long term. It’s refreshing to be working within recreation.
The funny thing is working in recreation doesn’t mean one has all the time for the world for it. I often leave early and come back late. This means my activity has fallen by the wayside a little. I do have to focus on making the best of this assignment though as I know it’ll be beneficial in my future. They liked my like with parkrun and that I run events in my spare time.
I love events because I’m passionate about bringing something to peoples lives that will leave an impression. A slice of time that people will walk away with that you helped personally deliver in their timeline. It’s a wonderful feeling to know something that you’ve put together can have that affect on a person.
I’ve managed the odd morning run since, I’m still running one run a week. Last week was an exception because a bad fall on the weekend meant it took my arm a long time to get back into running shape again. I know it’ll be easier to get back into it once the light returns.
At the very least I’ve been managing to eat right. Nutrition is something that can fall by the wayside in office jobs with all that cake. I’ve been bringing in fresh fruit salads, yogurt and Graze snacks. I’ve made a habit of Sunday or Monday meal prep lunches. Please feel free to share your favourite recipes for meal prep in the comments! Above Moroccan Mushrooms and couscous. Below Greek Salad.
Another of my favourite Sunday tasks is to Bullet Journal for the week ahead. I like Bullet Journaling because it blends art with lists. One of my resolutions for 2018 is to parkrun once a month. I made this parkrun tracker to help me keep note of my parkruns.
