So I’ve had a pretty full-on few weeks.
I can’t believe it was only eight weeks ago that I was sitting in a local cafe with Ruski (my lady-husband) when we started discussing (again) the possibility of a Lazy Girl Fitness Bootcamp. I’d been toying with the idea on and off for a while, and by that stage a number of my friends had started encouraging me to put something concrete together. I finally made a commitment to myself to get it off the ground in 2014 and we started to set some goals and put a plan together on the back of a napkin, with a blunt pencil we borrowed from the waiter.
See it’s kind of weird. I’ve been a PT for years, and I do some corporate group training, but for some reason I’ve been unwilling to commit to a Challenge style scenario. Why? Scared probably. Of the time. Of the effort. Of the possibility of failure. All the normal things that people are scared of. But now – FINALLY – I’m doing it.
2014 has been an epic year for me so far. It’s the first year I’ve been single in about five years for starters … and that’s been a learning curve in itself let me tell you. It’s been about family and friendships (new and old) and being thankful for the wonderful people in my life. It’s also been about hard work and stepping outside my comfort zone. It’s been about Lou of course. And it’s been about making a commitment to myself to be better, in lots of different ways.
So with that in mind, I committed to kicking off the first Lazy Girl Fitness Six-Week Challenge on November 3rd, 2014. Which is tomorrow. And I could not be more excited. The past few weeks have been a blur of planning and stressing and marketing and eBooking and calling my graphic designer in a panic on a Saturday morning when he’s hungover and trying to sleep. And don’t even get me started on my woeful attempt at keeping the blog running with regular posts! Add to all that a sad (and very fleeting) trip home last week to farewell an amazing woman who was a big part of my childhood and it’s no wonder I’ve felt a little rundown and become so reliant on Armaforce to get me through life.
But now the time has finally come and I’m feeling back on top.
So here I am, sitting on my bed on a Sunday afternoon, eBook done, gift packs sorted, session planning 75% complete and I’m finally able to relax. Because now – after making that commitment to myself eight weeks ago – all that’s left to do is get started.
And I CANNOT WAIT.
Bring on 6am tomorrow Team xx
