My Self Care Pact

 

Hello guys,

Well its been quite a week here at Little Mis-Fit HQ .  Last week my boiler was condemned – they actually stuck a danger – do not use sticker on it! . To be fair the fact I had to give it a whack every time I wanted it on , did give me a small clue that it was on its way out.  But still a new boiler eek! The up side is I don’t have to whack this one, its much quieter than my old one , which used to sound like it was taking off and also my house is once more nice and toasty – hurrah!. 

Last weekend I took a trip to Busy Bee studios in Durham https://busybeestudio.co.uk with my friend Erin – it was so pretty! . she had some gorgeous things. I got some gorgeous smelling Orange Cinnamon candles  – they smell divine and  very festive!. 

I did have a little trip up in the loft this week aswell to get some of my autumn/Halloween things down so I could start decorating in the house  .  I’ve also been using my halloween mugs from Tk Maxx – loving those!. 

What with boilers , dental check ups – does anyone else get Dentist dread?? 😳.  I had meetings ,  aswell as trying to keep on top of housework , and still juggling the  two jobs  alongside doing a business mentor programme  , it is so easy to get a little overwhelmed –  and I know a lot of you guys are the same – juggling Work/kids/looking after elderly parents –  our own self care does seem to go out the window at times.  So I am making a huge effort  to make sure I am prepping and organising food and eating healthy meals , aiming to get enough sleep ( a work in progress) and fitting in my own workouts aswell as taking a little time out in my week to just be.  I do find though that when I do take time out – my creativity increases and the ideas flow so I know – when I think I am too busy to stop and take a breath and get some time out , that is actually when I need it more than ever!. 

Some of my favourite ways to get some self care time are below. I would love to hears yours too!.  Add them in the comments!

💕 Getting outside – I think fresh air is a brilliant tonic for the mind and soul. going for a run or walk or just taking my book in the garden instantly soothes my spirit. 

 

💕 Take time to relax before bed – I am terrible sometimes for working late into the night , but I am trying to cut off by 9pm and doing something other than work related – watch some youtube videos  – loving Grace Denny’s channel – if you love makeup, clothes and TK Maxx and drinking tea – her videos are brilliant! . plus She loves Halloween and Christmas so combined with her love of makeup – I love her ha.  I also love to listen to podcasts too.

💕 Curling up with a book  – I love to read and have done since I was a little girl . So taking time out to curl up and lose myself in a book is heaven – especially if we add a large cup of Lemon and ginger or peppermint tea and a bag of chocolate buttons (shh).  

💕 Meeting up with friends –  This is a big one, I think all of you fellow Girl bosses running their own business’s will agree that it can be a lonely journey at times and sometimes  you do get so caught up in work and getting overwhelmed with your to do list and sometimes just talking things through with someone on a similar journey can help you feel much better. 

💕 A good Netflix binge –  Or a boxset or Movies 24  – especially when it becomes Christmas 24 (can you tell I’m a bit of a Christmas elf)  . We are currently watching Making a murderer on Netflix  – It is so good!.  if it is just me watching though, I love Good girls – amazing!!!! and Cheasepeake Shores.  

💕 Working out – something that often slips down the To Do list when we get busy . I promise though taking even 15 / 20 minutes in your day to get moving – doing a workout – hiit, yoga/pilates,  Dance around your living room, taking a walk – I promise you will feel so much better for it! . exercise really is a brilliant mood booster, it will also help boost your energy levels so you can tackle that to do list more efficiently .  It also helps boost your immune system – something that lowers if we run ourselves down too much.

💕 sleep!.  Making sure we get enough sleep.  Aiming for a good 7-8 hours a night.  It’s when we sleep , that our bodies repair themselves , our cortisol (stress hormone ) levels lower and our energy levels replenish.  

So I am making my Self care Pact here – to make sure I look after myself so I can continue to make sure you guys are all looking after yourselves too. Especially as we head into this last quarter and probably the busiest few months of the year!  Comment below with what you are going to aim to do for your own self care pacts!

The Barre is open

 

 

Hello Mis Fitters

 

So its now officially Autumn!.   The final quarter of 2018 – honestly where has the year gone?. Does anyone else think its just whizzed by so fast?. Please say yes so I just don’t think its because I’m getting older and they say time speeds up as you do eek!.    

The end of Summer / start of Autumn weekend was a good one – I went to see Wicked last Saturday – its the third time I’ve seen it now but its just as spell binding as the first time!.  Sunday was such a lovely Sunny  Autumn day , we took a stroll around Beamish museum.  We have those annual passes for £20 which means you can go as often as you like – its perfect for a nice walk. plus there is always something going on there. The pub with their apple cider – delicious, perfect for this time of year   . I can’t wait for the 1950’s town to open aswell!!! .

This week I  finished my Barre qualification, hurrah!. Barre is a combination of Ballet moves, combined with Pilates and Yoga  – plus we’ll be adding in elements of HIIT, plus  using weights aswell for workout that is going to help you get leaner, stronger and more toned – perfect for any time of year , but especially with the Christmas party season right around the corner!.  Its a class I’ve wanted to bring to the timetable for a while and  I’m excited to finally be able to do just that.   check out our new October Timetable on our Timetable page! .  I would love to add a Teen/Tween barre class too if I can fit one in somewhere!.  Those of you coming along to Barre next week – don’t forget your 1kg weights if you have them!.   I got mine from Argos for £6.99. 

 

I’m also busy working on our Halloween themed classes –

Monday 22nd October  

Halloween Kids Yoga camp  1130am-3pm at Believe and Be Consett  . This class is suitable for kids age 4-7. £18 per child  including a picnic lunch ,  90 minutes play in believe Town plus a Yoga and craft session. Spaces are limited so do please book early! 

Of course  they can get dressed up in their halloween costumes ! 

We will also be doing our Pumpkin HIIT  class and a family  Halloween Yoga class!  on Saturday 27th October – more details to follow!  

Last week we also had our first men on mats pilates class  – which was really busy. I think they really didn’t know what to expect, but they all did brilliantly . They all seemed to really enjoy it and hopefully all coming back!

 By the end of the year Little  Mis Fit will be full time – eek, I’m not going to lie ,  I am so nervous to leave my corporate 9-5 Travel job with its steady pay check and benefits – I only work there two days now but its still nerve racking taking that leap into full time self employment .  I have to try though and life is indeed what happens at the end of your comfort zone so its time to spread my butterfly wings  and fly. I’ll definitely  be sharing my journey here on my blog for those of you that want to follow along. Maybe you are on a similar journey or maybe you would love to do something you are passionate about for a career so maybe  my journey might help you in some way. 

 

This weekend I’m off on a little trip to the Busy Bee Studio in Durham with my friend Erin, for a browse around their Halloween/Autumn goodies.  Erin has been telling me about this shop for ages and they  have three big shopping weekends  – one end of September, one end of October and one end of November . I’m so excited. as they keep posting teasers on Instagram of the shop and all the amazing products. Check out their Instagram @busybeestudio.co.uk.  I’ll try and Instastory on our trip there , and I’ll definitely be sharing anything I purchase.    

Love

Spooktacular October at Little Mis -Fit

Hey Guys,

Right I feel I have said this so often this year , but honestly I can not believe another month is almost over!. I mean its October next week! – October ! . Though I admit , I do love Halloween month, I’ll will definitely be gong in the loft to get my Halloween décor out in the next week or so . I got some fab Halloween mugs last week from Tk MAX. – what about you guys? – do you decorate your home for Autumn/Halloween? . if you follow me on Instagram @littlemisfitjojo- I’m sure I’ll be doing some Insta stories on my autumn/Halloween décor.  

October at Little Mis-Fit we will see some timetable changes! . Injecting some new classes.
We will be bringing Barre classes to the time table . Barre is a combination of taking ballet moves and fusing them with pilates and yoga moves to help strengthen and tone the entire body and we can also make it a HIIT style workout too – welcome to Barre BURN!!. If any of you would like to get a pair of 1kg weights to bring along to these classes , to add in an extra challenge to the workout, then it would add an extra challenge.
You can get these from Sports Direct, Argos , Amazon etc. Don’t worry you will still be able to do the classes without these , it just adds that little extra to your workout and of course Christmas party dress season is right around the corner . I am also
going to bring a boxing style class back on a Saturday morning , as we have been boxing past couple weeks and I know some of you miss it.

We will also have a Small group training starting Mid October , which will take us to the end of November – right in time for Party season. Please let me know if you would be interested in a place.

Pilates Small Group will also be back Mid October though this often sells out pretty quickly!.

From January , I will also be looking at running some day time Small group sessions so please let me know if this would be something you would be interested in. these will be in addition to the evening sessions.

We will also be doing a Halloween special Family Yoga class on Saturday 27th October!. Of Course Halloween fancy dress will be highly encouraged!.

Little Mis-Fit’s Greatest Adventure yet …….

So this week,  my little community fitness business – Little Mis-Fit  turns 8 years old!!!.   

 

 

I look back 8 years ago , at the hopes and dreams I had when I set out on my journey and honestly can’t believe how fast the time has flown by, and how much my little dream has grown and become my reality .  

I had always loved Exercise. I started running in primary school – one of the teachers used to take a group of us out on a Friday lunch time. Throughout Secondry school, I was on the cross country team and I loved PE.  Now I was on the Cross country team, -but honestly  I was so not the best runner at all but what I did have was the determination to try and to keep trying. I would train with the team each lunch time, I went to running club on a Tuesday and Thursday night  and just practiced and practiced. I just really enjoyed it and I got faster and fitter.  So when I left school the Career advice lady who came to school, suggested I may want to go into the fitness industry, at that time though I wanted to travel and sport was something I did because I enjoyed it , what if it was my job and I came to hate it??.   so I became a travel agent!. 

In 1995, at the age of 16, I left school after my G.C.S.E’s to enroll on a YTS (youth training scheme ) as a trainee travel agent – I wanted to travel the world .  I liked the job but there was just something inside that told me , this was not really what I was meant to do  .   I have travelled to some amazing places and even got to work in Las Vegas a couple of time so when I was  in my early twenties  which was pretty cool. 

Over the years however I did keep coming back to the idea of teaching classes. Finally in 2010  as the age of 30 , I found a local course and decided to go for it. Now not many people know this but in actual fact I signed up to do my Pilates course first!!!, then changed my mind and switched to the group fitness course instead.  It was over 10 weeks and it was a tough 10 weeks!!. It was the first time I had studied in a long time and I was working full time and at college on a Sunday all day and trying to juggle the homework and choreography practice. Ha all that juggling though would stand me in good stead for all the juggling I do now!.  I remember having a week off travel work , during the middle of it though and it was a lovely sunny day and I was sat in my garden , studying – thinking this could be my life! My life could be not being stuck behind a desk all day in a stuffy office for 8 hours , 5 days a week , but instead have the freedom of  doing a job I loved and working more flexible hours.  8 years on , I am achieving that dream!.  A couple years ago, I did eventually get around to  doing  my Pilates course aswell hurrah!.   From that first moment of teaching – I knew I had found it – the job I was meant to do!. It just felt right

After getting my Group fitness qualification – I set up a Class on a Monday night in a local church hall. Back then I think I was on Facebook but no clue really how to use it . In fact I didn’t really know much about running a business at all! . When I was 24  and saving for my first house, aswell as my travel job though , I worked as a Virgin Vie make up rep – so I would go round delivering parties selling make up – as a make up junkie  this was actually a bit of another dream job too , getting to play with make up and being paid for it ha.   Hmmm actually I wonder if Charlotte Tillbury or Mac would be interested in me doing a little side work for them …………………. .  Anyhoo I digress but actually being a Virgin Vie rep I did learn a couple things about marketing and running a business so I was not totally clueless  as I learned about keeping my accounts and a bit about marketing but there would be so much more to learn.   

It has not always been an easy journey – so many people think being their own boss is much easier than working for someone else. In actual fact its so much harder.  I’ve tried things that didnt work  out but there have been plenty things that have worked out and I genuinly love what I do . In recent years I have also started working with kids – doing Yoga  , which is actually not something i ever set out to do, It was a little detour but again something I really enjoy so definatly a case of  Serendipty    (FYI totally love that movie!!) 

I am truly truly grateful  to each and everyone of you that has been part of the Mis-fit journey over the past 8 years – some of the people in that very first class, are still with me today  and the same with my second class I set up a couple months later – they are also still with me.    Without all you guys coming to classes and helping spread the word,  Mis-Fit would not be what it is today. You guys inspire me to keep going , to keep teaching classes  , to keep learning new things to increase my knowledge and keep classes fresh and fun.   I love our little Mis-Fit community we have created , with friendships formed and the craic in the classes . I can have had a really stressful day at the 9-5 and all I want to do when I finish is curl up on the settee and watch netflix, but I know the minute I stand up in class and start teaching you all , sharing in the banter , laughing , Its the perfect medicine and I love that I know its the same for you guys too.  You can have loads going on at home/work but you show up for class for some You time and we help you feel better too.  

Huge thank you aswell to my mam, dad and sister who  are my constant cheerleaders, cheering me on and supporting me and my friends who do the same and who understand when I can’t always play out because my working hours are so different to theirs but they are always there. 

 

My Big goal was always to aim to make Little Mis-Fit my full time job. As I got more Qualifications and grew my classes , I was able to reduce my days at my travel job from 5 days to 3 days and last December I actually dropped down to 2 days. However having returned from Holiday this  Summer and having talked about it forever and with the support of my family and friends all cheering me on , I made the huge decision to take a leap of faith and take Mis-Fit full time – eeekkkkkkk!.  S*#t just got real people!!!!!!!.   So from December 2018  – Mis-Fit is full time!!!! . 

Maybe it will work out , maybe it won’t   –  that determination I had when I was starting out running , that has always  stayed with me   and I have every determination to try and make this succeed too -Either way I have to at least try – after all the magic happens when you step outsode your comfort zone!  .   I believe at least trying  ,  will be Little Mis-Fit’s  greatest adventure yet!.   

 

Time now for Cake and Prosecco!!!!!!!!!!   

Love 

Joanne

Self Care Summer!

Hi Guys,

Happy June! , so Summer is just about here. Who else is excited??.   Mind as I write this currently , its chucking it down and I definitely heard thunder just now!! – so yep its British summer time alright lol.  Though we have had some glorious sunshine of late so I can handle a little rain, and hey my little garden plants will be happy anyways – silver linings!. 

I love Summer, I mean you guys know I absolutely  love Christmas but I also love summer (and Autumn too ) .  We always think of Christmas as been a really busy time of year, but honestly I find Summer is just as hectic – there is so much  always going on – holidays to take, nights out, impromtu afternoon drinks , Day trips out,  lovely long summer days to enjoy, 

Juggling work plus  taking care of our loved ones  and balancing a social life though can feel so overwhelming at times. I speak to so many of you who feel like they are juggling so many plates and its exhausting and can really have an effect our mental health and  well being  , This can often manifest itself in our physical bodies . For example when I get run down , a lot of you know I suffer sore throats and can lose my voice. For one friend she gets really bad ear ache. others it might manifest as  back pain  , or maybe migranes/tension headaches.    It may be that you just feel so drained and don’t really have the energy to do anything . My friend Marita bought me  the Fearne Cotton book – Happy for my Birthday and its really good!. full of lots of useful tips and tricks for finding the Joy in  everyday life. if you haven’t read it, definitely check it out.  

So this month lets find  time in our days and/or week to focus on showing ourselves  a little self love and care! . Its only when we do this, that we then have the energy and patience to take care of those around us too.  I’ll be posting up tips and challenges on my Facebook (www.facebook.com/lilmisfit1)  and Instagram  @littlemisfijojo  throughout the month so be sure to come follow along!.  

This month we have also launched our virtual classes , We have a private Facebook group, where we have at home workouts. At least two new workouts will be posted each week, building up a little library of classes for you to access and workout as and when you can, especially if you are struggling to get to our live classes due to work , and/or childcare issues. . We will also be sharing healthy recipes in the group    and  I’ll be adding in some  meditation practices too.  just £10 per month. Its not too late if you want to sign up for June, just ping me a message – info@littlemis-fit.co.uk. or see me at class. 

Our  Kids after School Yoga programme is back this week too at Believe and Be. For kids age 4-9. 

we have twice weekly sessions as follows :- 

Monday afternoons  4.15pm-5pm

Hey Guys ,

I hope you all had lovely bank holiday weekends! .

Virtual Classes

So this Friday 1st June will see the launch of our Brand New Virtual classes! .  I know some of you do struggle sometimes to get to classes, due to Work and/or childcare etc, so these will be classes with me ,  which you can do from home as and when you can.

For just £10 per month, you will get access to a Private Facebook group where I will be posting up workouts a couple times a week for you to access. Some will be Facebook Lives , which means I'll be streaming live, but don't worry if you can't make it as the Live workouts will still be saved into the group for you to access.

If you would like to sign up - just drop me a message and once paid , you will then have access to the private Facebook group and we will kick off this Friday - June 1st.

Pilates & Prosecco Event

I will be hosting a Pilates & Prosecco Event on Saturday 7th July 12noon-2pm.  The venue is most likely going to be Blackhill Community Centre. Am off there next week to finalise it :-).

Please let me know if you would be interested!
