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. …

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 …

The graceful moments of taking notice

Weekly Photo reflection Post: Graceful 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. We all tend to go through rough patches in life, yet regardless of what is going on in our psychological environment, mother earth can help us to attune to our external environment to a higher more positive frequency. The pretty agility and grace of our surroundings allow us to poise in that moment and appreciate the power of now. There is always a stillness and peace to be found, spaces where you can gain clarity, inspiration and confidence in the day. The new economics foundation  commissioned by the UK Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing developed a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing. In this report, NEF presented  the evidence and rationale between five well-being actions, drawing on a wealth of psychological and economic literature. Where ‘taking notice’ was recognised as one of the five priorities. Studies have shown that being aware of …

A recognition that bleeds into everything

Via Daily prompt : Recognize 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. Dear Strength – Recognize that today you will learn more about yourself, you will grow when in pain, you will change your perspective and you will get up and put on the cloak of fight. You will respect yourself, your boundaries and you will take heed to instinct as the universal nod to what is wrong and right. Don’t you dare ignore its energetic might. Be grateful, graceful and honourable to your four walls, speak with simple honesty and humility yet do put up a persistent personal fight. Leave when the time and signals are right. Endure, succeed and have tenacity to give it all your love and might. In the face of adversity rein in on the foundations of endurance not forgetting you can not change another’s voice when in height of fight. Be in awe of your courage to speak what you find uncomfortable …

Simplify

THE FORMULA FOR SIMPLE LIVING Live beneath your means Return everything you borrow Stop blaming other people Admit it when you make a mistake Give clothes not worn to charity Do something nice and try not to get caught Listen more, talk less Every day take a 30 min walk Strive for excellence, not perfection Be on time, don’t make excuses Don’t argue, get organised Be kind to unkind people Let someone cut ahead of you in line Take time to be alone Cultivate good manners Be humble Realise and accept that life is not fair Know when to keep your mouth shut Go an entire day without criticising anyone Learn from the past, plan for the future Live in the present Don’t sweat the small stuff Its all small stuff. ~Source : Unknown~

Mid Life Relationship

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. Many experts approach relationship challenges from the “deficiency model.” In this model, they identify what isn’t working, and work to fix those problems. On this statement I feel perplexed at the entire pressure around relationships and that perhaps we should look to the eye of the storm before its causal breakdown. A relationship is one where both people feel and have respect for themselves and with this have a deep bond between each other. In doing this it radiates and a natural stronger bond will flow. For me this starts with honouring my own body, creating a solid foundation and relationship with myself, from inside to out. Trusting and understanding my worth, my boundaries, my self value; a heart centred self love. This approach is about creating a solid foundation ‘for’ the relationship in me. One where both people feel a personal strength allowing a deep bond between each other. In doing this, there is …

Let the pain run through you {4}

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. Be inspired by every new moon. Beauty is in the ordinary, in today, in your freedom, in your passions, in your friendships and in your self love. Feel just a little bit happy that it is at your fingertips. Pour and put behind you, dizzy memories that make you cry, be done; they are freckles, winged friends. Feel motivated that you have your eyes on today, it is a high freedom of a dizzy state of potential and excitement, of health. No need for complicated, I have spent the past week with my reading musings. Relaxation, exploration and embracing of forgiveness. Mindfulness, simplification, putting my eyes only to what makes me fly and just that little bit happy. Healing memories of old, decluttering to dizzy freedom. Who says its hard, who says you are quite not enough, it is only as you see it and hear it, the unhappy noise and …

Because you are already there {2}

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 body palace I remember the first thought of I hate my body; quite frankly I was far too young. I had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t attached to it, that my skin was some kind of alien. Giving it zero respect, compassion or love with my words or actions. Terrible isn’t it that I can’t even give my own living breathing vessel respect. Being inspired by word; ‘When you learn how to create a boundary to something or someone that you find difficult or unaligned with, new possibilities of opening and connection emerge in you – possibilities which were previously being blocked. This is something I have learnt first-hand in my life and I love working with others on boundaries because I know the richness it brings.’ ~ Lee Harris What exactly is it here that I give my energy to when it comes to body confidence? …
