Validate our Women

The Swarm of International womens’ day is nearly upon us where women must be celebrated for their ‘capacity’ to achieve. Over time it is not uncommon for a womans own self worth as a person to be undervalued and self sabotaged. The risk here is that a woman can feel inherently less more loveable and less worthwhile. Importantly, when a woman does achieve, there is cause for celebration. Yet I suggest on this day we celebrate the effort and attitude of all women with their tenacity ‘to get there’ and ‘push through’. Placing value on the ‘actual attributes’, such as effort and the strength of attitude within their tool kit within any transitional phase. One’s sense of self and place in the world must be one that no longer involves unique and idiosyncratic conditions. Simple, no nonsense, unadorned and embellished … Women have and own pride with your power, efforts and attitude. Contributor for Guest Speaker & Fitness Lecturer for Who am I? I am a 42 year old mother, certified fitness strategist and Health and Wellbeing lecturer. …

Exercise Gutsy

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Enough individuals have trailed the gyms of the planet and found a space for breeding a new you. For many the dual Slur of work and life are a balancing act and when signing up to a new exercise and activity adventure, people will congratulate you, reward you and you will receive an explosion of compliments as a star performer on the change. It will become your be all and end all religion to drive down your own stress and to coerce others into the trainer led cult and fitness rehetoric. Then before you know it apathy hits home and it is here we realise that it is the ‘what you do’ that brings the happiness. Pumping treadmills, racking up miles, picking out a prestigious environment can all be your meca. But setting the tone from the start tailored to your scheme of ‘likeable’ things is key to boosting morale, …

Joining the Dots

Simple Agility

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. I want to make a new groove, a time where we can identify with putting tweaks in the day to be a little more mindfully present, to Translate some good intent and action. [It’s] tiny tweaks: the tiny tweak of “I love this person—but every time they come home from work I hardly get up from my computer to even say hello to them,” ~ Susan David ~ Smart folk recognize the need to take a step back — to put the shiny new toy down for a minute to identify with the important values within the day. Emotional agility lets say, based on well established gratitude. Can we capture a moment in exchange for something truly meaningful? It is no conspiracy, we can consciously iron out a few personal imperfections here and there and find some unprecedented positive experiences and happiness with it. How do we engage, in practical ways, …

Shoehorning into Lycra

Via Dail prompt: A space to Sound out about the muses of a grumpy fitness sort. Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life.  Hurrah I opened an Instagram feed to be reminded that there are perfect examples of ‘good’ lycra in the world. To women whom have connected with the right before and after. ~Quote~ ‘One year since I stood crying in my bedroom, unable to force myself to go to the gym one more singular time’ For me this is a big part of my life, my work, my business and my responsible voice as a trainer and teacher within the fitness boom. Social media for the fitness and wellbeing blogging culture has become nothing but wading through a series of before and after images and I can’t but blame my sector and some trainers for that. I am becoming utter wrangled with a visual feed crammed high with toxic before and afters of semi clad cleavage laced …

Addressing the irresponsible swell of wellbeing as a profit centre

Via Daily prompt –  Heard Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. The challenge of mental health and wellbeing is a significant longstanding debate and with it a marketeers profit dream, a topic and sector to be founded with deep ethic and values. With Teresa May announcing in January that the UK Government would do more to help schools and employees ‘deal’ with the hidden injustice of mental illness and need to do more to support ‘mental wellbeing’, it thus leaves the door open to deep abuse in a climate of profit over a moral compass. If you are looking to transform your health and workforce this year who better to take inspiration from than a ‘people powered tank’; The new economics foundation (NEF). Rooted in real lives, workplaces and communities and commissioned by the UKs government foresight project in 2008, reporting the most insightful and important drivers of mental capital and wellbeing. With the concept of …

The fluid stuff

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Water is essential for life. Each of us is made up of around two thirds water and if we don’t replenishes our supplies we would survive for no more than a few days. We NEED water to get rid of waste products from the body and to replace losses from breathing and through sweat. If we don’t replace the lost water we are in danger of overheating. Water is obtained from drinks and from the water content of foods. What happens if I don’t drink enough? A lot of people don’t even realise they are dehydrated, because they have become so used to feeling below their best. Dehydration can leave you “feeling tired, constipated, nauseous and can result in often headaches” How do I know if I am dehydrated? A good way of knowing if you are drinking enough is by the colour of your urine. If its pale and straw …

The beauty within anxiety

Dear women, Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has unlimited volumes of at any season. Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude and speaking good words to others.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect nothing but the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own. To forget …

Dear Women, A new month sets above us a time to re-centre the feminine, embrace our strengths and set the banquet table ahead. Revive, revisit, reconnect and beautify the natural pure love for the inner self we can bounce back to. Let our next weeks set our grace, our exploration and our understanding of whom we are.
