Monday Members Checkin #2 ๐ŸŒˆ

Hey peeps, how we doing since the last Monday check-in?

How was your week and more importantly that super-short weekend? We hope that you are doing well, if so - share what's working for you in the comments below, if it's not going so well, share that too and we can offer some virtual hugs and encouragement.

In the meantime, hereโ€™s a reminder that I have printed and attached to my monitor at home. If you just to a little bit of whatever you need to get done, to get you where you want to go, over time, youโ€™ll make gains.

Also, here is a great resource from Liz and Mollie to be mindful if youโ€™re dealing with conflict this week.

I the meantime we shared some interesting books in our last newsletter that might be helpful regardless of where your head is at, there are all sorts of helpful things in here:

Last week I changed my workout routine to something that was more focused around tone, cardio and flexibility. I have become a bit tired of lifting and then having to deal with the aches and pains of getting back in the gym as well as having the spare time and motivation. So far it is working really well for me.

On another note, here is another Monday playlist to listen get you in the mood for the week:

And here are some amazing motivational speeches to get you in the mood for the week ahead.

Being a misfit:

An education on females in sports:

From the crazy David Goggins:

And the bonkers Arnie

It wouldnโ€™t be a Monday checkin without some motivational posters ๐Ÿคพ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

And finally a poem. Let's crush this week and i'll be in touch again next Monday โค๏ธ

It doesn't interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesnโ€™t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon...
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life's betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn't interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn't interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn't interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.
