Ive now been in college a few weeks doing my evening course and i wanted to update you all on how I'm getting on! For the people who are unaware i decide to challenge my mind and look to the future to find myself again since i now have both children in full time school.
I ended up enrolling in a level 2 & 3 course in a local college, studying level 2 Fitness Instructing and level 3 Personal Training. Getting fit and keeping healthy has always been a passion of mine, i thoroughly enjoy going to the gym and i like to think i know my was around nutrition. So to go into something that i love and make a career out of it is something i really wanted to do!
The last few weeks have been manic I'm not going to lie, juggling the evening course two days a week with homework and revision on top has been hard! But non the less so enjoyable for everyone.
Graham has been picking the kids up on the days I'm at college and taking them to feed the calves and milk the cows. They have been really helpful and loved every minute of it.
I have seriously missed the meal times together and the kids in general but it is getting easier, most of the time when i arrive home between 7.30-8pm ( sometimes they let us go early ) i can tuck the kids in bed and read them a story which is lovely.
Its been great to let Graham take control and do the bits i usually do like cook dinner and bath them. He has definitely found it challenging at times but has not moaned once!
My course is split up between the first day being written work and the 2nd day being more practical in the gym. Im loving every bit of it! Using the brain that i haven't properly used in a good decade or so has been tough but great! I have my first exam coming up just after half term that I'm a little nervous about i just need to get my head down in the books and stop being distracted!!!
If your someone questioning whether to go back to college or Uni to find yourself again i would definitely recommend it, just generally meeting new people has been amazing but to get back in to the work place after this is a massive bonus!
