I’m Still Alive, LOL :)
I’m still alive… and yes in 2020 that seems like an accomplishment. I’m assuming you are still alive too if you are reading this, and if not I have some messages for those in the afterworld that I’d like you to pass along, message me. 🙂
(Yes I completely tried to find a quick “call me” gif but I’m not smart enough tonight to figure out how to put it in this post. Maybe later my brain will work??)
As I logged in today, I realize it hasn’t been that I haven’t wanted to write. I have, and the drafts making up most of the first page of posts in my dashboard prove it. That dashboard by the way is about 20 posts long and is primarily of posts that just never got finished in the last year.
So yeah, I’m still alive and still working through life amidst the pandemic that has wreaked havoc on everyone’s lives. 2020 has been an interesting year and there is a lot I want to say, but I also know this post and tonight, is not the time to do it.
One thing I do know in this time of upheaval is I have never been so glad for my Fit2B membership that I told you about in 2018 here. (Yes, affiliate links ahead.) The ability to do workouts at varying levels in my house, and the community … thank the heavens above for that community, have been a saving grace this year. Everyone in my house can work out with Fit2B at their own level. With the energy level of some of the kids this year, that has been such a blessing this year.
I did want to let you know Fit2B has a conference coming up in the new year.
If you already have a membership to Fit2B you may have seen a notice about this conference already. If not… I could help you with that, lol. No seriously, there is an open house right now on Fit2B and that lets you try out the premium membership for TWO weeks!! No payment information is needed. (The affiliate link that I’ve given you here simply adds a little spending money toward the blog, and/or our homeschool life if you decide to make a purchase after clicking on my link.)
On January 8th, from 12 pm – 6 pm (EST, 9 am-3 pm PST) the winter conference Bits Bones & Booties Conference will be held. What is this you might ask? Something I’ve never seen, and yes, I’ve already signed up for. There will be live filming of upcoming workouts to be on Fit2B, Q&A sessions, and engaging sessions with 6 experts over the course of the day. Learning for 20-30 minutes, moving for 10-30 minutes, and repeat! The page that I’ve linked to in this paragraph will give you more information and an opportunity to sign up.
While the day sounds slightly exhausting at my current energy level, even sitting there and soaking up the environment will I think be more than worth it. If you are not a member, and if you want to purchase a ticket for the conference it is only $69.00. If you are one of the first 50 there is a virtual swag bag. If you are not, there is still an awesome conference to be a part of.
I know I have done a lot of things with Zoom and conference calls over the last 9 months. Nothing has encouraged me to get up and move while on it. I’m looking forward to this conference and if need be will listen in with headphones and a battery attached to my phone.
Yes, I need a new phone, and to figure out another iPad for the house… because as of tonight all the girls have tried and loved Procreate. But that story, and show and tell of what they’ve figured out, is for yet another blog post. I’m still alive, and one of my goals for 2021 is to be more present in my writing world (here) and in my physical world making my body stronger for many reasons that will also be explained in other blog posts to come.
Think about trying out the open house for Fit2B, the offer ends on December 31st. If you want an idea of where to start as I know it can be overwhelming comment below and I’ll give you a few of my favorites.
Be safe my friends. Really, be safe. I want to have such a big party when the world has stopped trying to be the tilt-a-whirl ride that keeps throwing our plans out the window.
Blessings to you and yours this holiday season.
