Wishing you a wonderful April and hope your Easter was filled with love.
Spring is my favourite season, a season of all things flourishing, new growth, birth and awakenings.
In finance its the start of a new tax year,a time to check if the goal posts have moved or still on track with targets.
In health its a period where we may benefit with changes to our winter schedule.
Bringing some workouts outside, trying new seasonal foods and vegetables from local farm shops.
Re – setting the goals & tracking the progress.
I am in Ireland this week for personal stuff & also over here researching some exciting openings in the healthy food market. I will let you know where this takes So Lean & Clean soon.
So Lean & Clean have had the best group results and support through January to date and from what I have experienced in my history of management of weight loss there is NOT a more successful way of lifestyle changes in eating habits than online plans.
24/7 guidance, support & accountability.
So if you make one big spring change get on it and leap forward to better your health here .
After a winter season of planting the seeds of health, the spring is here for nurturing them.
And I like to attend all fitness & nutrition conventions to stay ahead with all the latest research.
A networking month with others from my industry . It rejuvenates, brings light bulb moments & helps to consolidate plans.
As I alway keep reminding here It’s very important to keep yourself constantly motivated and excited about life . Nobody will bring that to you on a plate, you have to go out and find it .
In work or personal life to stay uplifted, source your motivation and inspiration, once you begin to seek out the people who inspire you, one day you will realise that they naturally flow to you so long as you are ‘open’ to them .
If you however keep your head down in a phone you may miss them .
This leads me to close my newsletter this week briefly paying tribute to a dear client and friend who was hugely inspirational and offered me great support whom I won’t name .
This big smiley guy came introduced to me word of mouth ( by another great client & friend) for private Yoga sessions , just one month in, he was diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer.
He and his lovely courageous wife came weekly to Yoga and Power walking.
I learnt so much about the effects of cancer from him & about the best ways of coping with cancer when an inoperable diagnosis is presented.
“Endorphins ” he would profess, you must keep the endorphins high.
Which he did, for the whole 2.5 years.
Rolling up every week that they were home & sharing his wisdom and humour with the PW group.
I would lead the group and always hear the laughter from other members who were walking with him .
We would joke and ‘rib’ the guys that they must have dropped off for a coffee as we have acquired a ‘steady’ pace pack that ‘naturally flowed’ along with him, rather slower than the frisky leaders.
This gentleman and that’s exactly how I would describe him, encouraged me to help others in his situation by taking me to a cancer & the benefits of fitness conference.
You may read this and think how peculiar that I still support fitness and helping people with cancer through my works but one huge thing he stood for was that ‘fitness & movement ‘ assisted his quality of life right through to the last.
He was there at the very start of the power walking group almost two years ago and I know he will be very dearly remembered by all.
If you are struggling someway right now then let me share his reference to a simple book in hoping that it may lift you.
The title here;
‘ Being Happy ‘ by Andrew Matthews.
For those wishing to crack on with goals .
See my website for all details to help , from online weight loss to power walking and running groups.
Wishing you all a very heathy and Happy week
