Have you heard the saying “when mama’s happy, everybody’s happy”?
This week I have been so very happy to chat with both my girls and find out what fabulous lives they are carving for themselves.
All the years of looking for school books, running friends home who’d missed busses and parents evenings have been worth it.
Even if you don’t have children there will be someone in your life who, when you speak with them, you’ll be overflowing with excitement for what they’ve done.
And just think, there are people in your life who feel that about you too.
We need these people.
They give us permission to talk about the good stuff we’ve done without it sounding like we’re bragging.
It provides a space for you to share your genuine excitement for their experience because you know how much it means to them. I don’t want to have the same experiences my daughters are having, but I know how rooted into their being these things are and that alone makes my appreciation for it stronger.
It brings us closer together in a time when we’re more connected by technology than in person.
Who can you call or see this weekend to give them the gift of your time so you can share the good things in life for each other.
Our next Family Charity Fit Camp is on Sunday 29 April at 09:00 in Winnersh.
We’re raising money for Bowel Cancer UK in support of one of our campers who’s been on a year long crusade of personal health improvement and fundraising.
During February I had to cancel more classes than I want to remember due to the snow and ice. However during that time we still ran sessions and kept our timetable as close to normal as we could.
Throughout that month, Pam continued to come and get her Fit Camp fix, attending more sessions than anyone else. For that reason we have awarded her Member of the Month for February.
Next week is UK Coffee Week. Many local cafes will be joining into raise awareness and funds for the coffee farmers.
I used to be a pretty excellent coffee drinker, but not anymore. I’ve given it up in favour of sorting my health out over the next few months.
I am not at all bitter…! Here’s an idea for you.
You may remember back in January I shared with you my decision around how to manage my recently diagnosed Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I’ve taken steps since then to find a way to further improve my health and I am blogging about it as a personal record and also in case it helps someone else.
It’s called Heidi’s Hashimoto’s Overhaul, but that’s long so I named it H2O for short. If you’re interested you can click the link here to find out what I am up to.
