Weekend Coffee Share #8
What I’m grateful for – being able to spend Easter with my family after the COVID-19 lockdown was lifted
Last week, I wrote that Greater Brisbane went back into 3 day lockdown which threatened to continue over Easter and the School holidays. I was so grateful that the lockdown was lifted at noon on Thursday meaning that Mike and I could travel to Brisbane for dinner with friends on Saturday and a family lunch on Sunday. The Easter bunny still visited and there was an overload of chocolate and sugar highs!
Quotes I liked
This isn’t a quote but I loved this meme that I found on Facebook. Although we are heading into Autumn here in Australia, the ideas can still be transferred to any season. It’s all about self-care every day.
What I did to stay healthy, happy and living well
It was great to get back to a long run with one of my Saturday Sisters last weekend. I’ve not been well and my running schedule has been interrupted. Despite the showers, we managed to get in 15km including a hill and some stairs. I love these weekly runs with my friends. It is a social catchup with a healthy twist – we run and then have a breakfast afterwards.
Do you have an exercise buddy or do you prefer to do your own thing?
World Health Day 2021
The 7th April was World Health Day and I shared 10 ways to Take a Holistic Approach to a healthy lifestyle
What I’m proud of
The importance of sharing our achievements
Okay, I’m not Oprah but I was pretty proud of myself and my podcast hitting 4,000 downloads during the week. It was a huge step for me to launch the podcast back in August last year. I had the usual ‘mean girl’ thoughts that plagued me and threatened my self-confidence, but I pushed through and made it happen!
Despite a hiccup when my MIL died in October, when production was put on hold, Season 2 is going well and I just love meeting women from different backgrounds who share their stories. Perhaps you are a Woman Living Well After 50 who has an inspiring story to share – I’d love to hear from you.
I shared this achievement of social media and received this comment from Rachelle Clayton of MEE Active
woohoo!!! So glad you are proud of you! This is an awesome achievement Sue, congrats!Rachelle Clayton CEO Mee Active
Her comment brought to my mind that:
It is a natural instinct to highlight our faults or failures but it is so important to believe in ourselves and acknowledge our achievements. It’s all part of #self-love and #Self-acceptance.Sue Loncaric WLWA50
What have you done this week to make yourself proud?
New to the Podcast – Micro Mondays started on Monday 5th April
I’ve expanded the podcast to include Micro Mondays – Resetting your Mind, Body & Spirit for the week ahead. Micro Mondays are short, bite sized ‘micro’ episodes with a message.
- Tips to live well
- Thought for you to ponder during the week
- Affirmations & Meditations
All designed to help us grow and continue as Women Living Well After 50. This week’s Micro Monday was an introduction to the series and a topic I’m passionate about – Making It Happen!
Take a listen and then share with me what you did to Make it Happen this week.
Thanks to Natalie from Natalie the Explorer who started this idea earlier in the year. I link up each week with my contribution. It is a great way to record what happens in life, like a diary or journal really and to reflect and be grateful for the good things that happen in my life.
Well that was my week and I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my life. How was your week? I’d love you to share with me what you have been up to.
