What was great about my day?

Stressfull ending to my work day and just wanted to go home after, but I bucked up and went back to the gym to do my cardio and it made me feel alive and great.
AWESOME Chest & Triceps workout.
Helped other people achieve their goals in work today.
I keep referring to myself as Coach Blandy at work which is a few promotions away from where I am now, other people are picking up on it and saying it to. Kind of made me laugh but wanted to get it in the Chefs mind so when they need a new coach they know where to come!!!

What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

Take bad days, experiences in my stride and know that I can change my emotions in an instant.
Push harder in my weights workout and keep that mental focus.

What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

Keep on helping others by supporting them achieve their goals.
Have fun because the journey is just as important as the destination.
Believe I am the BEST because I am!
Dream Dream Dream about this Million Dollar home, because when I get it I need to know style it out and where the BIG TV will be going.

Love it mate.

Can you spill any beans on your restaurant plans? Sounds like you have had a great week, do you have any plans for the weekend? I heard there's been a crazy amount of rain in the UK lately... so much for Summer aye ?!

I am in Vancouver where the weather is perfect at the moment, so if it rains in Manchester who cares,lol. The day i left Manchester i forgot all about it, i class myself as Canadian now, its a shame Immigration dont yet,lol, but they soon will.
As for the restaurant, i had always wanted a Pizza Restaurant, that is my dream. Since being a Vegan and healthier my ideas have changed slightly.
I want a "healthy" old skool sort of Diner that is Vegan, i think about selling meat aswell to appeal to more people but then it goes against what i am doing. I will never judge others for eating meat or any animal products but i have decided i would like to be surrounded by similar people.
My theory is if you open a greasy pizza parlour, you will get unhealthy greasy customers and being surrounded by people like that will rub off on you so i want to be surrounded by healthy Vegans and healthy people who arent Vegans but enjoy a meal that has no animal products.

I could go on but that is the main idea, of course there will be a few meals considered treats but everyone needs a treat day even healthy people.
