I hope you’ve had a great week?
I know for some the word ‘great’ doesn’t get used much in lockdown, but I think that we can make of this situation what we choose and just recently I have chosen to see things in the best way possible.
Take this week…
Monday was my 50th birthday.
Last year I’d planned a holiday to celebrate it with. A week away to remind myself of the momentous occasion when I passed my half century.
But life had other ideas.
A heart-wrenching loss of a client, COVID-19, a business re-organisation, personal life changes, a move and lockdown all meant that what I thought my 2020 was going to look like took a completely new turn.
I could have chosen to find the crap in this situation and dwell in the dinginess of the sadness. But I decided that life is too short for that. I decided to make the best of bad situations, to take risks with decisions around the business, to follow my instinct and see where it took me.
So far it’s served me well.
Are there still dark shadows of dinginess?
If I look for them of course there are.
Do I stay in them?
Not any longer than I need to.
The COVID-19 situation may go on for a long time yet, or it may be all over in a matter of weeks.
I think that what we can do is choose that whatever happens – decide to live well regardless.
To make the best of any situation we find ourselves in.
To follow guidance and yet also think practically about our own situations and to find some ‘normality’ in this non-normal time.
On Monday I had Brownies for breakfast, walked on the beach for a few hours, ate a load of chips, drank too much wine, chatted with my kids on WhasApp, was overwhelmed with cards and presents and really had such a day that I wouldn’t have changed it if we’d not been in lockdown.
I’ll not forget it.
I want to also thank you ALL if you attended on Sunday for my birthday Fit Camp goal of 150 Zoom log-ins. We smashed it! 192 people logged in, we must have had over 300 people doing the session, it was flippin’ brilliant!
I whizzed through 50 exercises in the session and, whilst we may have just snuck over the 45 minute mark, it was a super job well done by all!
You can still join me this week at 9am if you want. It’s our free Sunday workout that we’ve been running through lockdown. I hope you’ll swing by!
Thank you for all the lovely messages you sent me last week for my birthday, I really appreciate it.
I’m now off to find a new plan, a new goal to work towards – apparently it’s good for us! (https://www.wddty.com/news/2020/04/keep-setting-life-goals-even-after-you-retire.html?)
My sunrise chasing has been reduced this year as my sleeping patterns have changed again and I find myself sleeping better. However, on occasion I wake early and get to see the sky in all it’s glory. Here’s what I saw when I woke up yesterday.
Have a great weekend!
Feedback from our Virtually There sessions
“In April I have lost a total of 20cm! That’s all down to Fit Camp in lockdown, it’s really made a difference to me!”
“it’s definitely paying off doing more Fit Camps – I’m doing full press ups now which I have never done before and it’s making my alternate day runs stronger too!”
” I am also grateful not to have to exercise in public, but in the privacy of home, so, again a positive.”
“I bloody loved this morning – thank you Heidi.”
