An apology – and what to do when life throws you a curve ball

Firstly…I owe you an apology. I promised last week that I would choose a winner for my “No, I don’t like it” competition, and hand out some prizes to everyone who entered early this week.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to it – my son woke up with a nasty case of gastro early Sunday morning…and is only just recovering today.

Covered in vomit, poo and tears…I just wasn’t in the right place to send out my newsletter or prizes.

So, I’m sorry – if you entered the competition, expect an e-mail in your inbox as soon as I get my act together (hopefully tomorrow!).

In the meantime…my son being sick this week has made me think a lot about what to do when life throws you a curve ball.

If I think back over this past year, there’s been a recurrent theme in my clinic: something happens in life that you’re not expecting…and the first thing to slip away are your healthy habits you’ve worked so hard to achieve.

I too am guilty of this. On Sunday I had made a promise to myself to get to a Pilates class – but on 4 hours sleep, I bailed and crawled back into bed instead.

Today I had a good look at the date.

It’s November already – there are only a few weeks left of this year – how are you going to leave 2017 behind? 

What changes did you make this year to better your health?

When something unexpected came along and knocked you down, did you get up and keep going, or did you stay in your zone of comfort eating/drinking/indulging in not-so-nice behaviour?

I would love you to spend some time thinking about what you really wanted to achieve this year for your health – and determine whether you managed your goals (if so, high give!)…or if you still have something you want to achieve, tell me about it.

I’m still in my clinic and gym until December 22nd – that’s 6 more weeks – please let me know if you’d like to book a consultation or PT session so that I can help you leave 2017 as a healthier version of you.

Have a great weekend,
