Self care is giving the world the best of you, rather than what is left of you.

It’s been a hectic couple months here at Little Mis-Fit . In fact this first part of 2019 has just flown by so fast!!. Do you guys think the same?? .

Between work and  birthday celebrations and various other celebrations it’s definitely been pretty full on since the start of the year. 

So I have loved last  weekend of having nothing in the diary and just being able to hit the pause button , Once I had finished teaching my Saturday morning class . I felt  so much better for it too. .

It’s so important, even more so when you are in a busy season to make sure you are taking time for yourself each day , just to catch your breath and recharge your batteries . We charge our phones daily , so be sure to do the same for yourself! . .

I’ve actually started writing on my daily to do list – my own workout , time for meditation and time to read. These are three things that I find when I incorporate them in to my day, help me find balance and calm. When they are on your list or in your diary , it helps you incorporate them into your day better too.

So this week be sure to add something you love to do on your own list and that you know will go a long way in helping you find some balance and calm in your day – though I’m not talking about that glass of wine or two mind guys!! 🤣, . Maybe make time to catch up with a friend, or do your own workouts. Maybe curl up with your book or take a walk or a long bath . Get your hair/nails etc done . Just something that makes you smile and feel content and peaceful. 

What are you guys going to include in your self care list this week? 💕. Use our checklist below for inspiration!

What if I fall?, but my darling what if you fly?

“What if I fall ? , but my Darling what if you fly?” 

.

This photo was taken last  summer , when we went to Italy on holiday, it was such an amazing place !.  I came back from that holiday and knew it was time – time to take a giant leap of faith and believe in myself as much as my family and friends did . 

 

I believe the universe sends us signs and helps guide us to where we are meant to be and it was definitely sending me plenty signs to tell me the time to flutter my butterfly wings was now. 

 

I had spent 8 years building my fitness business alongside working part time as a senior business travel Consultant ( sounds proper fancy  doesn’t it 😂) .

 

My dream though was always to make my fitness business my full time job.  

Taking that step though was so scary –  I lived on my own , so all the bills were solely my responsibility.   Could I really make it work full time ?.  

 

My business was growing and It was getting harder and harder to juggle the two and I was exhausted.  Whenever I get run down , I lose my voice . Since my early twenties , this has always been how stress manifests itself within my body.  I’ve had the cameras down my throat , I’ve been for speech therapy and learned that when it happens , it’s my body’s way of telling me to slow things down and it was happening a lot. 

 

Travel work was getting more stressful, we were being bought by a rival company and the simple fact was I just did not want to be there , I wanted to be running my business full time.

 

My first day back at work after that holiday , I handed in my 12 weeks notice and left last November.

 

That was 6 months ago now and during that time I have not lost my voice!!!  ( hopefully not tempting fate 😂).  Is it easy – no! , is it worth it? – absolutely!!!! .  My fellow entrepreneur friends all said to me – “you will do it and never look back”. They were spot on . 

 

So if you sat reading this and are in a similar position thinking about taking that step of taking your side hustle full time  , don’t be afraid to at least try – even if it didn’t work out , I’d much rather have tried then always to have wondered.  I have more time to focus on my business, and as a result , it’s continuing to grow which is amazing . It has also allowing me to create a better work/life balance again too. 

Its just about putting a plan in place to get you there. I knew I had to give 12 weeks notice which seemed ages, but I also knew that was 3 months pay checks I could try and save as much as I could to give me that little safety net at the beginning.  I worked long hours fitting my clients and classes in to my week around my part time 9-5 job. All the time I just kept focused on my goal and that kept me going through the tougher days. 

so go do it – spread those wings and fly toward your dreams . 

Lots of Love

May time at Little Mis Fit

Hey Mis Fitters ,

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter – how gorgeous was the weather!!! , at least here in the UK!.  It was glorious and really felt like summer had come early.  My poor boyfriend though was in Spain on a Stag do and it chucked it down! Still they took refuge in the pub and still had a great time and I think they just avoided all our social media posts of us all back home basking in the sunshine!. 

I spent a lot of the Easter weekend out in the garden , it really is my peaceful place and I love to head out there with my book and a cup of tea or on occasion a cold glass of Sauvignon  Blanc. This past weekend I’ve been reading the Mrs Hinch book , I really enjoyed it.  It was her story and also had plenty of her cleaning tips in too.  Aswell as reading though I was also working on planning out May here at Little Mis Fit .  Though I did also fit in a trip to Ramside spa for a night with some of my friends to celebrate a few of our birthdays. We had an absolute ball and of course with the weather being so lovely, it felt like being on holiday sitting by that outdoor pool , sipping prosecco, loving life!. 

May for me is Birthday Month! , Its a big one this year aswell, so plenty celebrations. I always feel like birthdays are always special though – not everyone gets to grow old so every birthday should be celebrated.  

May Happenings 

May class passes will be on sale from Friday 3rd May and are valid until 31st May. 

8 session pass – £35 

12 session pass – £50 

Unlimited monthly pass – £60

I am away Wednesday 1st May and Thursday 2nd May so no classes either of these days.  We also have two bank holidays in May – Monday 6th May and Monday 27th May so no classes these days either.  

May Class Timetable 

 We have been incorporating lots of Weight work in our sessions.  We already use them a lot in our Barre Burn class and we have started using them in our Small Group Pilates sessions aswell, which the guys are loving. 

We will definitely be using the weights more in other classes too such as body sculpt.  Weights help us to build muscle which in turn burns fat and of course helps us tone up. Did you also know though that weights also help keep our bones strong especially as we get older and our bones become more brittle.  Keeping our bones strong by using weights and body weight exercises can help us reduce our risk of brittle bones as we do get older, so it is important to build that strength up and lets face it none of us want bingo wings do we!.  hands up if every time you wear a strappy top , you think to yourself – I wish my arms were more toned!.  

if you would like to invest in some weights for classes – get either 1kg or 2kg ones for the Pilates/Barre burn/Body Sculpt . I got both sets from Argos. 

Monday 

Barre Burn 6.30pm-7pm at North Durham Academy, Stanley

Finding Peace on your Mat

Mis Fitters meet Jacquelyn from Action Jacquelyn.

 

I came across Jacquelyn a couple years ago on YouTube and I loved her Yoga and Barre workouts. Even as an instructor, you look for inspiration for your own workouts and so I do a lot of Jacquelyn’s yoga and Barre workouts and I love her mediations too.

There is a quote – “I bend so I don’t break “. It is so true – For me practicing Pilates and Yoga helps me find balance in my life . When I was juggling two jobs and felt overwhelmed with a huge to do list , even though there were times when I felt I just did not have time to stop – I knew that by hitting the pause button and stepping on to my mat and getting in a Pilates or yoga workout would help me catch my breath and give me a sense of calm again. Now I teach classes full time – which I absolutely love , but being full time self employed is a little scary too . I continue with ,my Pilates and Yoga workouts as I find its a good balance for my body and Mind and actually help keep me stronger for HIIT style workouts .

I am currently working with a lovely bunch of teenagers who are preparing for their GCSE’s . We are doing a mix of Yoga, Pilates and Breath work. Exams can be incredibly stressful and so by teaching the students breathing exercises , it can help them to find a little calm and hopefully ease feelings of anxiety and overwhelm.

As adults , we can also face anxiety and overwhelm as we face various challenges on our journey through life. Life these days is so fast paced and its so easy to get caught up in worrying about what is going to happen or what could happen, that we forget to press the pause button and just be present in our life now.

Jacquelyn was a ballerina who went on to become a Laker girl. She has been teaching fitness classes now for the past 10 years.

A few months ago , Jacquelyn shared her story of how she came to find peace on her Yoga Mat after suffering from a panic attack and anxiety , this is her story –

So on my trip to Shanghai, China 6 years ago, I had my first and last panic attack. It was scary. I had never had anxiety or panic attacks prior to that, so I didn’t know what was going on.

After I got home from that two week trip, I was suffering from constant and absolutely unbearable anxiety.
Panic Attacks are scary. I don’t wish them upon anyone.

Once I got home from my trip to China, I was THIS CLOSE to living on anti-anxiety medication… but I promised myself it wouldn’t be my way of life.

I had a panic attack because I was so anxious about figuring everything out in my life at that very moment, controlling the outcome as best I could, without really knowing how, that I drove myself into severe anxiety.

I was focused on the future, not the present moment.

I was blaming everyone and everything around me for the way I felt, thinking it’s society’s fault, or my boss’ fault, etc…

But blaming others means you’re avoiding a difficult truth… about yourself.

I was in a yoga class when my breakthrough journey out of anxiety began. The teacher said (without knowing what I was going through), “anxiety is a choice”… a choice, I thought? BUT…

Later that day, I knew I was meant to be in that class at that very moment. She gave me the wake up call I needed to hear to reclaim my power back, to remind me that I am the one choosing to feel certain ways in my life.

The anxiety didn’t just go away overnight though…

I returned to yoga, and showed up on my mat, over and over and over again, day after day, to breakthrough the anxiety… by being present, to look within, to sit with myself, to get to know myself, to unionize my heart and mind, to deepen my breath, to calm my nervous system down…

I first stepped into yoga wanting to learn how to do handstands and all the cool poses, and then what made me stay was the peace of mind, empowerment, self-esteem, and the faith and trust in myself that I cultivated through the mindfulness of stretching and meditating.

After this experience I knew I wanted to be a yoga teacher. And now, every class you ever take from me, I remind you of the choices you have in your life. To hopefully touch you the way that yoga teacher empowered me.

Little by little, my anxiety dissipated. When it would come up, I would have a conversation with myself, and tell myself things like, “You’re ok. Everything is going to be ok. Life is going perfectly as planned. Learning is apart of life. You are loved. You are love. Your family loves you. God loves you.”

It’s these mindful conversations you have with yourself, and the people you surround yourself with, that makes the difference between unraveling out of control and living the life of your dreams.

And now I have ZERO anxiety.

My purpose here is to remind you that you get to reclaim your power, that you get to unbury your joy and happiness, to remind you to not blame but rather look within for YOUR truth, every time you step onto your mat.

*** Seriously, if I could completely break free from anxiety, as a former skeptic, realist, controller, panic-attack-about-to-happen at any moment type person, YOU can too! I totally get it!
This is why I’m SOOOO passionate about what I do here, in sharing powerful breathing techniques with you, and cultivating daily stretching routines for personal awareness and pain relief.

April at Little Mis Fit

 

Hey Mis Fitters!,

Can you believe we are almost into April??? We are a quarter of the way through 2019 already!.  Have you guys been following along with March matness and trying out a few Pilates moves?.

Its been a busy few months here at Little Mis Fit since going Full time which is fantastic.  It really has been a bit of a whirlwind  . I’m heading off for a little break this weekend though , which I am really looking forward to, a chance to catch my breathe and recharge ready for the next quarter.

I’m loving getting out in the spring sunshine for walks 😄. 

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day Mis Fitters!,

I’m currently rocking my new Micky and Minnie T shirt, which I picked up last week from George at Asda!. Its soooooo darn  cute, I love it! . 

Regardless of if you are  coupled up  or single, I hope you spend today doing something you LOVE.  It can be as simple as taking the time to curl up with a good book, or to watch your favourite movie or Netflix show. It could be taking a lovely long bubble bath after a day at work.  Maybe meeting a friend for a catch up over lunch or a cup of tea.   Get moving  your body too  –  get outside to take a walk  or take a class . Exercise is such a brilliant mood booster and will help strengthen our hearts!. 

Taking the time to look after our mind, body and soul is so, so  important.  When we take the time to look after ourselves , we are reminding ourselves we matter too. It also helps us give our best self to others around us, instead of  burning ourselves out trying to juggle  so many things and finding our own self care dropping further and further down our priority list – hands up if you have also been there!   . So Start treating yourself like your own best friend – after all we spend 24/7 with ourselves so we need to be happy in our own company.  Take note this week too as to how you talk to yourself – would you talk to a friend the  way, you talk to yourself?.  Become your own little cheerleader. 

“Think positive Thoughts and they will shine out of your face like moonbeams and you will always look lovely”  Roald Dhal.

So on this day of Love – show all your loved ones how much you care and also include yourself on that list too!.  Love yourself enough to move your body, nourish it with healthier food choices and believe that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. 

 

Use our self care check list as a reminder to take care of yourself too!

Sending you all lots of Valentines love and hugs 

Joanne x

 

 

 

February at Little Mis Fit

Guys can you believe the first month of 2019 is just about over and we are about to enter Chapter 2 ?.  

I know a lot of people think January seems to last forever, but for me , Classes have been super busy  and I had a few fun adventures booked in – bonus a lot of them had been paid for in advance  – always good in January!.    I had got my sister afternoon tea at the Town House in Durham for her Birthday back in November and we had booked it for January . It was so nice!.  if you don’t know it, its a Gorgeous little twenties style boutique hotel right in Durham City, it really was like stepping back in time to another era, and the afternoon tea was really nice! . 

Then Peter and I had a date night to the Sage to see Dirty Dancing the musical  which was fantastic!. I have seen it on the stage a few times before, but just with the smaller venue , it definitely added a little more to the show.

  My mam and dad also  celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary ,

so its been a busy fun start to the year, with plenty more celebrations to come. throughout the year. 

Classes have been really busy which is brilliant!.  I honestly love teaching and we have really built such a lovely community within the classes ,and the small groups and in the  1-1 sessions  , that sessions are always so much  fun to teach with plenty banter and laughter alongside the workouts.  Its said your Vibe attracts your tribe and I am so so lucky with all you guys!. 

I’ve also been hooked on a couple Netflix shows this month too. Have any of you watched YOU on there?. so good!!! can not wait for season 2!.  I’ve also been hooked on Marie Kondo tidying up.  I read her book a couple years  – The magic art of tidying up and now she has her own Netflix show and I’m hooked.  I’ve been decluttering the house using the Kondo method. Its about keeping the things that spark joy for you – if it no longer sparks Joy, its time to thank the item and then declutter it. Have any of you guys been watching too?. Have you been inspired to try the Kondo method?.
