Teas and coffees against rules?
Hello, dear subscribers! Welcome to our weekly
прошлых выпусках мы
говорили с вами о еде, о том, какими ёмкостями мы можем её посчитать, об
исчисляемых и неисчисляемых существительных. Inparticular(в
частности) wehavelearnt (мы узнали), что кофе/чай, да
и любые жидкости принадлежат к группе неисчисляемых существительных и посчитать
их мы можем onlywiththehelpof(только
при помощи) cups
(литров) и так далее. Nevertheless(тем
не менее), westillcanhear (мы все еще можем услышать):
-Would you like a coffee?
like two teas, please.
в том, что) в данном случае речь идёт не о напитке, как таковом, а о чашках.
Поэтому, если вы слышите «ShallImakeyouacoffee?», знайте, вам предлагают чашечку кофе.
теперь, по такой же аналогии поступаем insuchcases(в
JZ: So, I know you as my Pilates instructor, that’s how I
see you. So, what is it you do, you think you are doing? What is your job?
LB: My job has loads of different areas really from the
reformer Pilates to the personal training. So what I docovers the wide spectrum of the fitness area to be fair, anything
from body alignment and core strength to general fitness, weight loss and tone
of the body, injury repair, sports, stuff like that really.
JZ: So, for how long have you been doing it now?
LB: Six years now in total.
JZ: Is that what you have started originally with?
LB: No, I have gone through loads of different jobs from
retail to catering manager to online sales, and then it was actually my partner
who asked me what I wanted to do, and I said I wanted to be a personal trainer.
So we worked towards that and he lent me the money to do the course, because it
is about £5000 to do the personal training course. So then obviously when that
happened, then I stopped doing any other work and just focused on my own
business and then becoming self-employed and then buying Pilates studio.
JZ: So, this equipment is all your personal.
JZ: Right. Ok, cool. That’s a lot of money I’d imagine.
LB: This is, yeah.
JZ: So you had to kind of invest in it?
LB: Yeah, you have to invest in yourself, which is the
hardest bit, because if you invest in someone else all the pressure goes on
them, but as you’re investing in yourself, you have to have like confidence to
take that as a backsack and move on into the world and know that you’re backing
JZ: So, with sports, had it been your hobby before it became
LB: Yeah, I played sports all my life, all the way from
school, I was on a rugby team, football three times a week, I used to run, I’ve
done a couple of half marathons, any sort of sport, but I do like gym. Gym is
my main thing, I like lifting weights and breaking the boundaries of your body
and taking you out of your comfort zone. Like with the reformer Pilates really.
JZ: So, you mentioned that you are doing kind of, you know,
health in general, so do you do any side of nutrition?
LB: I’ve done my nutrition course, erm, but to be fair, it’s
really…I find it hard, it’s hard to stick in my head. Obviously I can put it
into my life and when people ask me about nutrition fitness, the main… the
first thing I ask them, is “you know what you shouldn’t be eating”. So,
everyone knows they shouldn’t be eating chocolate, crisps, biscuits, cakes, all
the stuff that yeah, it tastes nice and stuff like that, and as soon as you’ve
knocked those out that you can’t be eating, you only leave space for the stuff
you should be, like more vegetables, more fruit, taking your time to have slightly
smaller portions or not eating so late or if you do need to eat late, lower the
carbohydrates, so you’re not sat there, doing nothing. If you’re taking food with
you to work or school or after the gym, or in your day to day time, you can
incorporate carbohydrates, because obviously in the afternoon you’re going to
need that energy.
LB: When you get home and
it’s quite late, and you’re just going to sit there watch telly or your
favorite Netflix program or something like that, you don’t need energy for
that, so you don’t need the carbohydrates to keep you going.
