2014 what a year I’ve had !!!
I sat in a room full of lovely ladies and gents listening to a talk hosted by the lovely Heidi not really knowing what I wanted out of 2014 but knowing that with the hell of some lovely like minded people I would set myself some goals and learn a little bit about myself and what I could achieve !!!
I had also decided that as I was going to be reaching the big 50 this year I was going to make this year special !!!
And boy has it been special.
With the help of Heidi, the Fit Camp instructors and my lovely hubby , daughter Emma (who has encouraged me every step of the way) my family and friends I have achieved soooo much!
And it all started sitting in this room where you are sitting now and listening to a very inspirational lady, Heidi!
My lightbulb moment came when Heidi was telling us about her running and she said “you have to get rid of the negative voices in your head”.
Sounds simple I know but that’s exactly what I did! The voices that were always telling me “you can’t do that you are too old “, “you’re not a runner”, “people will laugh at you if you do that”, etc, etc.
I gained so much from that meeting I loved it!
Listen out for visualisation techniques it was invaluable for me.
Every hill I tried to run up Heidi was at the top.
I could see them putting a medal round my neck and crossing the finish line of every race, walk or challenge I entered!
Amongst many challenges I’ve done these are a few of my favourites
1. The Bracknell half marathon (So negative voice I can actually run !!)
2. The moonwalk
3. Climbing Crib Goch. At Mount Snowden tough but fantastic! Nothing puts life into perspective like hanging off the side of a mountain by your fingertips!
4. Swimming a mile of Lake Windermere with my lovely daughter Emma whom I have mentioned has been my mentor throughout.
I have done obstacle courses , Survival of the Fittest.
I literally have had a ball and I know when people say if I can do it anyone can but I soo mean it I really do !!!
I cannot thank Heidi and Kirst , Clare, Karen and Fit Camp especially Warfield camp for encouraging me every step of the way.
This year has literally been fantastic and I can’t wait for 2015 to see where it takes me because I know I can achieve.
My advice is: it’s out there for the taking whatever you want so you go get it !!!!
